As my last winter break as a college student/graduate comes to a close, along with the 2013 year, I reflect back on memories of myself and loved ones, as most people do. I question decisions I've made, I laugh remembering at long nights with friends over wine and cheesy chick flicks, feel sad for those I've lost, to someone else or just because it was simply the right time, I mostly though feel content for where my life has lead me, though it is not necessarily where I imagined it would be, I truly feel blessed. Not in a spoiled type of way, but in a way that makes me feel happiness for the people I have in my life and how grateful I am that God put them there for me.
Along with reflection of the past always seems to come with that, a longing and hopefulness of what is to come. Which in a way seems slightly ridiculous because where I am now is not where I thought I would be 10 years ago, or even 5. But either way, it still comes to mind and imagination, where will I be, who will I be with, and who will I become. All of these seem so far off yet ever-changing. Like in one moment, fate could simply change course, and in an entirely different realm of it, God has a plan and just likes to send you teasers along the way just to keep you on your toes.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
As of next week I start a whole new chapter in my life, finally entering into the working world of adults. I can't wait to meet some amazing new people and learn everything that I can. So many thoughts have been reeling through my mind so I thought I would share a few from my lovely quotes Pinterest board. Enjoy!
