A Few Thoughts

Lately I have been thinking about the future. A lot. Do I try to go to grad school? Do I try to get a job? Do I try to get a fellowship and leave the country for 10 months? Quite a few of my posts on here show my excitement to grow older, take on new responsibilities and move forward but I am starting to finally hit that part in my movie life where I realize I am not the biggest fan of growing up. Now I know everyone says that, but no matter how many times people tell you, sometimes things don't sink in until you have more context to understand them.

My parents have always taught me to learn from the mistakes of others, to make my own and learn from them in a way unique to myself and for the world. For the longest time I have considered my worries as failures, failures to think optimistically and confidently. To a certain extent I still believe it, but I think I am finally starting to put pieces together in a different way.

This summer has opened my eyes to a few different things, some you may learn as I slowly come back to TSP. If anything, I hope this little post can serve as a reminder to y'all that IT'S OKAY TO BE WORRIED. It's OKAY to not know where your next step will lead you. For now, it's OKAY to steep in the moments of happiness you get when you consider the endless possibilities of the future.

Catch you next time.
