Uncertainty is alright

This week has been on of those weeks, where everything seems to be convening on these few days with everyone in the world wanting to pitch in their two-sense and win the argument, trust, support or right to something. But guess what, sometimes the things that you want, aren’t entitled to you. Sometimes you need to think about if your actions are completely transparent and reflective of your intentions? We’re all humans and the need to be emotional, supportive and trusting are valuable traits to strong relationships and building ideas but sometimes the greater good may step on these values.

And think these are invaluable lessons to learn, we’re still in college so there is less pressure on making the right decisions but rather finding our way in the way we grow and prosper to become contributing members of society. However at the same time, college is moving so quickly I don’t often feel like I have a good grasp on what opportunities are available to me, how I may take advantage of them and allow me the peace to find my path. We’re supposed to look four, three, two or past our last semseter to be planning out each detail. We have only been on this Earth for 17-21 years, have we seen it all to know what we want? I definitely don’t think so, but everyone’s individual experiences shape their perspective on life, on what is feasible in life. I can only hope we can allow ourselves to be vulnerable to ask for the support and advice from our peers, professors, advisors, coaches and faculty, staff at the University of Puget Sound.


I guess you can say I’m not ready to grow up yet, and its rapidly¬†approaching anyway.
