There’s an old quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson that states, “life is a journey, not a destination.” Even though I have not reached the main goal, why not enjoy the process. A journey is fun, in my opinion, because of the uncertainty. If you read or watch any stories that involve a journey, there are usually ups and downs before the characters in the story reach the end. But usually, no matter how many plot twists there are, the prize is usually obtained. There’s me on one side and my goal on the other. It all depends on what I do in between. I’m on an adventure right now.
I will be continuing my journey to Dallas for a new job opportunity that God has blessed me with. I am also thankful to be entering my last semester at the University of North Texas with my bachelor’s degree. Never have I had this much optimism about my life. I don’t know exactly where I’ll be at in 5 to 10 years, but I do know it will not be where I’m at right now. Like Emerson said, life’s a journey, so just enjoy it. Be happy, take risk and never take any days God gives you for granted. Never limit your success and have the imagination of a child. You may be surprised what the end result is.
Getting out of the comfort zone
I’ve learned that comfort can be our biggest enemy, not our adversary. Reaching another level in life requires getting out of the common comfort zone. It forces us to become content when life can offer so much more than what we have now. That is one of the main reasons of my excitement. I’m a lot more confident of where I will be at in the future.
So you may ask, how are you so certain that you will be at a better place? It’s because of one thing: my faith. One of my favorite scriptures is faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Not trying to come off as arrogant, but it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. Learn to live in your own reality. If you can see it, you can definitely achieve it.
I’m thankful for all the things God has done for me in my life. I have been blessed to work five different internships in my career field, meet celebrities, meet new people and had the opportunity to do some public speaking. But I know God has more planned. He has helped me to acquire a vision that I didn’t have 5 years ago. So with this new transition to a new city, a new job and a future college degree, I know that my destiny lies in my faithfulness and work. Let’s see what The Journey brings, I look forward to it!
