Recent Realizations

Lately I've had a lot of time to think and I've come to a major realization:
I don't actually know what I'm doing in life, but it's ok, because I never have.

I've been looking back on what I was like a year and a half ago when I was transitioning from high school to college and it's crazy to think how different everything was. I had everything planned out. I was going to Lee University, majoring in Journalism, rushing a certain local sorority, leaving Athens and never looking back. I thought I had it figured out.

I was so wrong.

Lee was a nice place, but it wasn't for me. It was nothing like I imagined my college experience. I couldn't find somewhere to fit in. There's a very certain type that truly enjoys it there, and they just aren't anything like me. I started taking Intro to Communications, the first class for my major, and I absolutely hated it. I found it all incredibly boring and when we began talking about Journalism, I realized I couldn't see myself doing that for the rest of my life- at all. 

In short- I was miserable. Thanksgiving break rolled around, and I went out to eat with my parents in downtown Athens. The trees were decorated with lights like they are every holiday season and it suddenly hit me how much I loved Athens. It's such a wonderful, perfect town. I had no idea why I ever left and realized- I wanted to transfer to UGA. In that moment I made an amazing decision and I'm so glad I did. I'm now at UGA majoring in English Education and I'm so happy.

Lately I've been questioning the plans I'm making but I'm beginning to see that everything in my past has had a way of working out, so why shouldn't my my future? I just need to keep trusting in God and seeking His plan and it will all be ok.

Love and hugs,
"Call to Me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you do not know." Jeremiah 33:3


  1. I can totally relate! My life is no where close to what I had planned for myself 4 years ago at the start of college. Sometimes, I think we dream too small for ourselves.

    1. I think so too! You never know all the grand things you can accomplish!

  2. I have no idea what I am doing with my life either. And then, when I thought I figured it out, that plan didn't work out. I've decided to have faith in God's timing and plan now, too! I know it will all work out for us!

  3. I relate 100%! Last year was so crazy thinking about my first year of college and how out of sorts I felt. I think that breaking my foot was a total blessing in disguise, and I am learning so much taking a step back from it all and just breathing. I still don't know what I am doing, I know what I want to do but its getting there and staying happy that I wonder about. You are so right, trust in God and all will go well.
