It’s hard to believe that in 2 months I’ll be walking across the stage to collect my university degree and officially entering into the adult world…this is a scary, nerve-wracking, but exciting time in my life. A huge time of transition.
What’s different about me now vs. me when I was off to university, is that I am not in such a huge rush to have it all figured out. For once I feel like I can take this new chapter of my life day by day because the rest of my life seems so vast in comparison to the four years I spent in university.
Looking back on my teenage years and university years, I’ve learned so much about myself and who I want to be in the world. One big change is now I realize that I am always evolving and learning now matter what point in my life it is. I’m sure I’ll look back on myself as a young 20-something and think, that girl didn’t even have a clue what was in store for her.
All these dreams are a little blurry, which is new to me. Before I would have had everything planned out and think I knew exactly what that was going to look like. Living on my own and growing over the past four years of university made me realize that it’s better to look at the big picture. If we spend all of our energy planning out all the little details, the beauty of life gets lost and we often feel disappointed.
The thought of looking back on my 20s excites me, because they’ve only just begun. For once I don’t have a specific plan and I love that. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I have plans. I am excited to: find and start my first nursing job…take the next big step in my relationship and move in with my boyfriend…travel the world and meet new people.
So what’s next for me? I’m not exactly sure, but I am excited for all of the endless possibilities that lie ahead…
