I will be returning to my camp this summer in a new role as a leadership counselor! This has been my dream since the first time I went to camp in the fifth grade. I'm excited to impact the campers in a new way and help my counselors through the summer. Also, there are a lot of traditions reserved for leadership that I'm really excited to do!
I've learned a lot this year, and some of it I learned the hard way. But I wouldn't change a moment for anything.
- I've definitely grown up a considerable amount in the past year, but I have A LOT left to do. I'm not nearly ready to be a real, live "adult" yet.
- I don't know how everything is going to turn out. I can't know that, but it's ok.
- Maybe my childhood dream of becoming a writer isn't so silly after all.
- The cost of eating out really does add up.
- Sometimes you make a bad decision. Do what you can to recover from it, and move on. Try again if you can.
- There's no point of making a to-do list if you're not going to follow through with it.
- I'm still not sure how one handles being sick as an "adult." I still text my mom with in-depth descriptions of my symptoms and ask what to do.
- How to study. Seriously. I was NOT academically challenged in high school and my first year of college. This year has been the first time that I've ever had to seriously hit the books.
- Trust God. He has a plan, and sometimes that plan involves your dreams coming true. No matter what, it is what's best.
What have you learned this year?
Love and hugs, and Happy New Year!
