I think…

A new mural/art sculpture was revealed at our university a few weeks ago, and I have been obsessed with it ever since. I was hoping that one of my best friends and I would make it over there to have a little photo shoot, but we never got a chance to see it until yesterday.

I think… 

Life is a beautiful thing, and I’m enjoying all of these crazy twists, turns and what ifs. I had so many plans or visions for what I thought my life would look like right now, even just a few short months ago and it isn’t really anything like I had planned. Sometimes that can be a hard adjustment, but that’s all part of the journey, right? So many of those plot twists lead you to places that are so much better than your original plan. I think maybe I’m onto the start of that.

God’s plan is way better than mine and sometimes you just have to surrender what you want, so that He can do His thing and lead you to something top notch.

I really like where I am. Yes, there are people I miss and sometimes I wish things were different, but you can’t go back and you can’t wish for things to be like they used to be. Things are only the same for so long before you change, grow and transform. If you were to go back to what things used to be or even who you were, you’d probably be a little disappointed in what you saw, because now you’ve seen the other side. You’re a different person than you were then. Use those experiences to get stronger and to be wiser, but don’t go back to an old situation. It just isn’t worth it.

I’m going to be okay. There are a lot of things I’m still nervous about, even though things are great right now. I freak out about the work I do and hope that it’s all enough. I hope that all of these assignments  that I’m doing now will be enough to land me the dream job, but right now all I can do is what I can do…Work hard, pray, have faith and believe that it will happen down the road. But, what I’ve also learned is not to rush the process. Things are good as they are, but there is always room for improvement.

I think a lot about the future and a lot about dreams. I think a lot about how I’ve met the people that are in my life and the significance of the role they’ve played, no matter how long or short. I also think about the calling of God on my life.

I think a lot of things, I guess! HA!

It’s late and I’m probably about to do more thinking, while staring at the ceiling as I lie awake in bed…you know how that goes, I’m sure.

That’s all for now,

Shelby
