So What Comes Next? (#23)


Today I’m grateful for…

  1. My family, for supporting me at my lowest
  2. Jenga games and new friends
  3. Spotify radio
  4. Change
  5. Shea 2 both as a resident and as an RA
  6. Little lessons
  7. Random sunrise dances
  8. The rain
  9. Time to journal
  10. My cat, for keeping me sane
  11. New adventures
  12. Holding hands in the car
  13. Days at Carver Pond
  14. Talks on the steps of Boyden and Helen’s Tree
  15. The Leadership Institute
  16. Late night walks back
  17. Laughter
  18. Slow dances under the stars
  19. The opportunity to speak at Commencement
  20. UMass Amherst
  21. My cat, Ned
  22. Mornings in bed
  23. Time to journal and process

  25. Making it this far

I’m not really sure what comes next in my life but I’m excited to find out what will. Life is all about change, and growth. Life is always about how you to respond to it and I want to do that with positivity, patience, and trust. I’m grateful to be exactly where I am in life.

Today I decided I want to apply to join the Peace Corps after I finish my Master’s Degree. I have to remember to take it one day at a time but I’ve found myself at a point in my life where I don’t want anything holding me back.
