I am rather proud of myself right now. I go a lot of school work done today! I read chapters for Physics and Music, wrote a Music paper, and did all of my online Poli Sci work for the week! Of course I still have Algebra work, Health reading and a Health quiz that will need to get done tomorrow, but I think I've got it handled!
Anyway, I was just thinking about all of the things that I have accomplished and done in college, that I never would have thought I'd be able to get through, prior to any of it happening. And the things themselves are not all that important. The important part is that I am capable of so much more than I give myself credit for. I think that's probably true of a lot of people though, especially people my age who are figuring out how to be their own person and live their own lives. It isn't easy. But it's a part of growing up and everyone goes through it at some point. There are new and foreign challenges being thrown at us left and right and we have to figure out how to deal with those challenges and still maintain balance and peace in our lives. I can't speak for everyone on this, but I know for me that with each new challenge thrown my way, I often get frustrated and anxious and sometimes I want to give up or ignore whatever it is. The funny thing is though, here I am! So far I've survived every obstacle that's been tossed in front of me. And I'm a stronger person for it. When the going get's tough, get tougher! You just have to remember that you will get through it! You've got to have faith in God's plan for you and know that everything works out for the better in the end.
A song comes to mind...
"If you're going through hell, keep on moving, don't slow down. If you're scared don't show it. You might get out before the devil even knows you're there." -Rodney Atkins
