I cannot believe it has been a month since I have posted! I also can’t believe we are halfway through summer! Where has it gone?!
Just for a little update, graduation was great, a little hot, but it was definitely a liberating day. The whole day I found myself dreaming, planning, and thinking. What’s next? Where will I be? Finally, I have the power to do what I want, when I want, and how I want. It’s what I have been waiting for. It’s what I have dreamed about.
Fast forward a week, I am home and about to head to the beach. However, that first week after graduation I was scared, a little depressed, and worried. I didn’t want to come home to a job that I had before college, though I am thankful to have it. I just wanted to use my degree and do what I know I am good at. But where would I find a PR job in this small town or anywhere near? Some of you might say, “Move!” To be honest, that it what I have said as well, but I can’t yet. I need to be home for Tyler, and for our relationship. It was hard to swallow.
So, I continued to look for jobs. I prayed a lot. I went to the beach and had an amazing time! It made me realize what is truly important in my life and that is family. It also made me realize a lot of things I want out of life and the hard work I have to do to obtain it.
Currently, I am home enjoying time with my family, friends, and Tyler. Oh and guess what? God answered my prayers and I am in the process of being hired to my very first “big girl” job. I am not telling this long story to brag on myself, but to encourage my readers to take control of your life.
The past year and as a recent graduate I have realized how INSANE being 20 is! There are so many emotions, so many questions, and so much confusion. What I have learned from all of this is that we have the power to take control of our lives. We have the power to move mountains and get what we want. For me it takes confidence, determination, and hard work. None of which are always easy. You have to be strong, independent, and positive to get to that mindset of how you will achieve whatever it is you are wanting and wishing for.
I am excited to see what is in store the next few months, and to see what God will continue to do in my life. I hope you continue to have an adventurous summer filled with fun and laughter! I can’t wait to get another video up for you all, once I get my computer fixed Soon, very soon!
