We Can!

3 years ago

Hey hey there! I know it has been a minute but a girl has been busy like you wouldn't even believe. The 2013-2014 school year has ended along with all the different end of the year tasks that come along with closing out a school year. I worked on a huge presentation that I am giving over the summer (it's still not completely finished but don't tell anyone). I painted the town red with one of my nieces and even more importantly, I just finished my summer grad school class so my first year of grad school is officially over now---whew!!!

 


To be quite honest when I walked out of my final exam for my summer class last night, I really felt on top of the world. As the wind hit my face when I walked out of the door, I truly felt that I was walking right on the path that God had laid out for me. Sure it has been ROUGH--exams and research projects in the midst of busy seasons at work and toddlers who are bright-eyed and bushy tailed at

4AM even though you have a full day ahead of you. But overall, I am proud that I was bold enough to blaze a path for myself in uncharted territories in order to start the process of making a major career shift. I really stepped out on a faith towards something that was completely foreign to me while managing trying to get closer to God, being a wife, mommy, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend (and even being in a book club!). But by God's grace, I did it and did it well.

 John 13:7

I say all this to say that we can do WHATEVER we truly put our hearts and minds to. We may not be able to follow a carefully laid roadmap all of the time but we can do so many amazing things. How great it is to operate in a faith zone! I don't need to know exactly what the end is going to look like but I know that it will be great!

 This song really sums up how I feel right now and it's just an all around feel good song period so enjoy (here is the link because I haven't quite figured out how to post videos on here yet-http://youtu.be/bg1sT4ILG0w). 

 Press on my friends. We can do it!
