the word: call.
what am i doing? what am i all about?
this time of the year certainly seems to be the time when seniors in college are starting to freak out about “what’s next?” after their cozy time in college, and it seems that it’s in this time, others are looking into new jobs, new careers, new directions in life…perhaps it’s because i’m working in higher education right now, that the year pretty much “ends” when the school year comes to a close in mid-may. and so, it’s that time…
the questions start coming out (or start to express themselves, rather!) –
what am i all about? what am i doing? what am i going to do with my major? do i like where i’m living? should i move?
wouldn’t it be so much easier if the answers could just be given to us so obviously? easier – yes. but fun and free? hardly. i suppose that’s where the excitement lies!
i remember when i was living in the philippines mid-way through my mission year, that i started seeing all over facebook: college acceptance posts, pictures of my friends’ tummies who were expecting in june, summer weddings, and enthusiasm for what is to come. i had to remind myself, crystal, be confident in your call – keep seeking, keep going – you are right where you need to be. all will reveal itself in time.
well, again, it is in this time, that i am reminded of the importance of checking in with myself and joyfully seeking that inner peace that lies inside….
pretty sure we will find in the various ends that we meet in our lives, that the answer has been inside us all along..it just takes time, that’s all.
hope you get a chance on this beautiful sunday to ask yourself these same questions as well! 🙂
