Embracing Change

Embracing change is something that I have struggled with throughout my entire life. We all hit the major milestones- sweet sixteen, graduating high school, and most recently for me, graduating college.

(Obviously, I had to keep the tradition alive and finally step on the Roanoke College seal)

Honestly, graduating college was one of the most bittersweet experiences of my life. I had to leave behind the friends, classrooms, and free-spirited environment that were part of my daily routine for four years. But at the same time, I get to start a new chapter of my life…and here comes that insecure feeling of change. I’m sure every new graduate is with me when I say the question of  “So, what are you going to do after graduation?” definitely sends my nerves in a million different directions. Well, that is because I don’t know. The process of applying to jobs is one that I can’t say I enjoy, or one that anyone has ever enjoyed. I have semi-unrealistic high hopes that I will get a rockin’ first job. But for now, at least I have a blog, right? ha.

This time of transition for me has been one where I am terribly hard on myself, especially when things don’t work out the way that I imagined in my head. I am not afraid to admit that I have so many traits that I can improve on, and honestly, I am glad I get this time of limbo to do whatever I want or need to do.

Life moves fast, as we’ve been told from the earliest we can remember. My life is moving fast, and changing sporadically. But, I intend to embrace this change and transition into the next chapter of my life, whatever that may be.

Maybe change isn’t so bad after all.
