I am finally seeing the “light at the end of the tunnel!” I am officially done with all of my classes this semester, which means I am able to focus more on my blog! I am so excited that I get to work on improving my blog and making it better for all of you. With that being said, this semester taught me so much.
This semester is actually my first one at a University because, for the past two years, I have been attending a Community College that was literally fifteen minutes or less from my house. I was used to driving a short distance daily until this semester at the University. It is an hour going there and back! Luckily, I only had to do that three days of the week.
My anxiety was really bad, especially with the thought of driving such a long distance. I was honestly scared of going back to being behind the wheel again because of what happened to me in March. I am not going to discuss it in this post since it has its own blog post here that you can read all about it. Anyways, I wanted to find the safest route possible to help my anxiety. I studied the map so much and even “Google Earthed” it. It took three different routes to find the one that makes me feel comfortable, instead of being anxious. Y’all have no idea how happy I was when I found the route that took all of my worries and fears away.
Even though the route was “the one,” I remember on the very first day of driving to class, as soon as I came home, I was in tears. It was a lot to take in on that day. My emotions were all over the place.
This quote is totally on point for everything that this semester taught me! I learned that we all take chances daily in our lives. I had to take a chance every. single. day. when I was behind the wheel and every day I thanked God for keeping me safe. I also thanked Him for giving me another day because I honestly feel so blessed when He gives me a new day. I won’t ever take that for granted because we aren’t promised tomorrow.
I have also been afraid about what will be coming next in my life and this semester taught me that I need to live life to the fullest. I need to take each day at a time and not think about tomorrow since the day hasn’t happened yet. We need to learn to focus on today only because the next day is for God to worry about. We need to be fearless.
I am so thankful for all of the blessings God has given me this semester and that He always motivates me to keep putting out blog posts for all of you to read! It was sometimes a challenge to work on all of the graphics and write each blog post, while I also had class plus homework to do. If you are in college, you probably have been wondering how do I do it and still get all of my assignments done! It is one of my priorities and I schedule each blog post ahead of time. If you couldn’t tell already, creating the graphics is my most favorite part and I love doing them.
Anyways, that is what the Fall semester has taught me and I am so happy that I get to focus more on this blog now. I hope all of you love it as much as I do.
If you are taking finals this week, I’m praying for you and hard work always pay off. You can do it and don’t forget to say a few prayers before you take your exams because it will help calm your nerves!
