Embrace the Change, Enjoy the Journey

Tuesday, May 03, 2016

And just like that, as quickly as it started, my college career is coming to an end. Tomorrow I'm headed into my last final before graduating on Monday. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little nervous.

For the past eighteen years, school is what I've known. I've spent hours scheduling classes, writing papers, studying for exams, and working towards a goal, a goal that I will have completed by the beginning of next week. 

I've enjoyed my experience in college although it hasn't been your typical one. I've attended four different schools in three different states, but that's the life of an army wife. I've put so much work into getting where I am now, and I couldn't be more proud of myself. 

But change is scary. And everyone keeps asking the same question, "what's next?" As if all of a sudden the end of one part of my life means that I'll have everything else figured out. But the truth is, I don't. Not even for a little bit, not even for a second. I'm still figuring it out, and I don't want the stress of trying to make all the plans for the future to get in the way of enjoying this moment right now. 

This moment that is a culmination of everything I've done to get to this place, this moment that is far too important to miss out on because I'm stressed out about what's to come. 

So in a year from now, what will I be doing? I can honestly tell you that right this second, I have no idea. And that's okay. If I think these past five years have flown by, I can only imagine how quickly this next week of celebration will go before it's over, and I don't want to miss a second of it.

Whatever change you're going through in life, embrace it.
