This weekend my brother graduated from University of Arkansas School of Law! I couldn’t possibly be more proud. Watching him overcome obstacles and still come out with his head held up high and an incredibledegree gives me inspiration to keep going! Never give up! God can always make a way, and if you follow Him, He will help you reach your goals! Keep moving.
This year my older brother graduated from law school, my younger brother will graduate from high school, my cousin and my uncle from grad school, and I will graduate from college! It is a great educational year for us!
The graduate and I! (:
Over the last couple days, I’ve had several experiences that have just shook me to the core. Death is lurking behind every door. Life is short. I feel like sometimes I get so caught up in all the daily activities in life that I’m not stopping to truly find some joy in each day.
I let exams, papers, meetings, responsibilities and work clutter my present. Worries, fears, stress, and concerns cloud my future. My past filled with possibly questionable decisions flood all of it. So when am I really enjoying life?
Over the last few days, I’ve just been reminiscing on the last few months in my life, and I think I need to change how I proceed in life. Not just plan for the future or wonder about if I made the right decision in my past, but truly enjoy my present.
I’m not going to lie and say that I’ll stop planning or thinking. I can’t stop; it’s a part of who I am. But I can choose to trust a little easier, love a little deeper, let go of fear and go after what I want. I can choose to not OVER-analyze every decision and not be so skeptical of others. And I can choose to let everyone in my life how much I appreciate, love, need, and enjoy them each and every time that I get a chance.
