Words of the Week: Looking Forward

So much has happened over the last year and I so often get caught up in the past that I forget to be excited for the future. So often I think about the things that cause me worry and anxiety rather than the things that I should be looking forward to.

While being a senior in college is definitely a time of uncertainty and sometimes a great deal of anxiety, it is also a time to look ahead.

Many people talk about college being the best time of your life…but to be honest, those people are kind of immature (especially the adults that say that). Sure, college is so awesome and such a great time to meet new people, do new things, and have a lot…sometimes too much…fun.

However, it would be depressing to think that this really is the best time of your life and that afterwards, that’s it…the “best” time of your life is over. I don’t think so.

Think of all of the amazing things to come after college. A new job. New places. New freedoms…and that’s just to name a few. Sure, being a college graduate will be hard and sometimes scary, challenging and often times intimidating. However, you have to take that step to get too all of the great things life has in store for you in the next phase of life.

I am very excited for all of the great things to come in the future, whether they be near or far. Of course there will be days of doubt, times of trouble, and I’m sure many, many tears, but it’s all a part of the journey and getting to these things that I can’t help but look forward to.
