A friend of mine confessed that with the Fall semester around the corner and her classmates posting on social media about their excitement for the new year, she was beginning to feel conflicted. On one hand, she wanted nothing more than to start the Fall semester like everyone else; however, on the other hand, she was so over school. She figured that she didn’t need to go to school to be successful. 

Of course, we need to look further into the intention behind our decision; for example, if we just want to stay at home and spend more time with her boyfriend with no goal in reach; then we obviously need to rethink and re-analyze our priorities. However, if we are planning to work a string of jobs to figure out what it is that we enjoy because we’ve never knowingly cultivated a skill, then we’re going to need to go through a season of recognizing what your strengths our. 

Everyone’s journey is going to be different. Some of us go on to get a PhD, while others go to a trade school. Some choose to have children, while other’s choose to adopt them. Some of us will get married, while others will choose to stay single. Some desire marriage, but won’t get married in the timeframe they’ve planned.

You see, no matter what we choose; our lives won’t always follow the society standard. I’m not saying don’t go to college, I am just say that we all have different paths of getting to our destination. While some may work in a corporate setting, others will spearhead a new invention or entrepreneur idea. However, it is up to us to use the tools that we’ve gained along the way.

So, listen to your discernment. And lastly, don’t commit to a goal because that’s what’s expected or the path in which everyone is taking.

Episode #33: You Won’t Always Know the Why: Sometimes the closest of people are the ones to hurt you. We won’t always know the how, the why, the what, or the when; but, we still have to move forward. We won’t always get to say sorry or goodbye, but we still have to learn to grieve and keep moving forward. Are you moving forward?

Ever blame your current issues on everyone around you? I know I have. “Mom, if you would have just put me through music lessons, forcing me to go! Then, maybe I’d be where I am supposed to be,” you say.

Do you think by going through those lessons — or moving our right after high school — you’d be further along? Do you think that if you had a mom that cared the way you needed her to, possibly you’d feel more accepted or loved? Do you believe that if you’re dad didn’t leave you early on, then you wouldn’t be jumping from relationship to relationship? 

The truth is, we don’t know because we are living in the here and now. Not in the what if’s. There comes a point when we need to take what was learned — by our own doing and from family history — and own up to what was done. Then, start tackling how we can pull a lesson out of it.

What lesson have you learned?
