So as most of you know I just completed my first week of college. I was so nervous. I have been homeschooled K-12 which means I have never been in a classroom up until now. Thankfully and to my surprise everyone was really nice and helpful.
Change is still really hard for me though. After my second day I came home and cried because I felt so overwhelmed with all of the new people, places and experiences. Adjustment is just really hard for me, but I think this is a good change. Your prayers are so greatly appreciated as I step into the unknown here, trusting God and His plan.
On a different note, I had the opportunity to perform at the Alaska State Fair last night. I had such a great time. Life can be so stressful and overwhelming, but one thing I realized a couple days ago is that the Lord has blessed me with some incredible people who sincerely care about me.
I realized the same about myself too. That I could come to class just the way I am and know that people wouldn't expect me to change and people would delight in me being me and I in them. The sincerity and the kindness of everyone on the dance team is really beautiful. I love to dance, but it is the people that make dancing so incredible.
It took me three years before I saw this. I challenge you to look at your life, no matter how you may feel and look for someone, place or thing that the Lord has blessed you with/by that you took for granted or simply didn't notice and don't forget to tell Him thank you. ;)
I love you all so much and you are all in my prayers.
