This semester was a big one, a few months that changed me forever.
I have learned that maybe I am not as put together and I once thought I was. And maybe that is more okay than being perfectly pieced together.
I have learned that sometimes the closest friend you could ever have is your own skin and bones.
I have learned that the path through change isn’t straight. It isn’t smooth. It cannot be given a time limit. It cannot be controlled.
I have learned that each person is more similar than meets the eye and our differences are things to be celebrated, not reasons for separation.
I have learned that you must be a sponge around those that you love. You have to soak up every moment, passed the point of being full, soak it in until you are dripping in love.
I have learned that it benefits you, in the long run, to trust others. Trusting others brings more magic into your life.
I have learned that conflict isn’t something to turn away from, but to press in to. Conflict isn’t something to try to avoid. It creates bonds that can hold the weight of relationship even in the midst of disagreement.
I have learned, again, that The Lord truly has your best in mind.
I have learned, again, that The Lord never leaves you, even in the darkest moments of abandonment.
I have learned, again, that The Lord will come through. Despite my confident doubt in The Lord’s plan, he came through.
I have learned that life is a process and your goal shouldn’t be destination, but just learning to love the ride.
