In the face of controversy and dilemmas, we must not allow our hearts to permit fears to glow...
But allow our actions to show up and get the done job... Quick trip down memory lane: A year ago, I was sitting in my dorm room. All I could think of was those TWO weeks left of school before I transferred.
Boy, let me tell you! NEVER have I been soo excited!!! To start fresh, to be in the city, at a larger academic program.
But quickly my emotions changed. —
On the first day I moved into my new apartment, all I did was cry and cry. Oh and cry some more. Having to begin from scratch. Again. Without my best friends, without the family I had established while those 2 years there. That first day, I realized 3 things:
1st- I was snowed in. My luck. Can’t go anywhere and no one can come to me.
2nd- There I was with the few belongings I had. Not a single friend nearby. In an unknown place.
In that moment it hit me that not a single object can buy happiness. It doesn’t matter where you live, what you have, if you don’t have what is important with you to share it with. It is ALL absolutely worthless.
3rd-I was conscience, I remembered the purpose behind WHY I do the things I do.
So with that in mind, I wiped those tears, got dressed, went out that night and met new people. Fast forward: I made friends that following semester and I LOVE it where I am and the friendships I have formed
Your circumstances will change but your ability to over come them should not. #keepmovingforward
