Here I am two years out of college and finally seeing and understanding my entire process. Most of us, college graduates have this high expectation on how life should be after we walk across the stage. But when reality hits and it always does, some things don’t seem to add up.
So if no one else has told you I will, “Trust Your Process”. When I say “Your” I truly mean yours. Don’t compare your situation with anyone else’s. Don’t let social media or reality television be your guide to a successful life. Most importantly don’t look to your friends who don’t have it all together themselves. Trust yourself.
Some people go to college with it half figured out and then there are some like me. I had no clue of what I really wanted besides volleyball, graduating, and doing more than what my parents did. So it took me some time to actually apply what I was good at to my everyday life. I had to do a lot of reflecting on myself and push a lot of people out of my life. But most importantly I had to find myself, the person I wanted to be minus the titles that the world tries to place on us, regardless of my career choice. After college I had to pay attention to what God was trying to tell me and when I did I found comfort in who I was becoming.
