Friday–Late Night Thoughts.

Hey all,

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile! I thought that I would have more time on my hands (considering its summer and what not) but boy are my Biology and Economics class being super needy and time consuming *rolls eyes* (haha just kidding Professor Layton if you’re reading this!) This post is a short one–as I am just here laying in bed on a late Friday night, reflecting my thoughts and all that good stuff.

It’s so insane how every action, every moment in our lives, has a purpose. The hard days, the great days, and even just your average days–they all play a purpose into God’s plan for us. 

Some nights, as I’m falling asleep, I think about this and I feel so small. I feel so small because there are over a billion people on this earth, and each of us are going through our own trials–we each set out every morning with different agendas, different mindsets, and different challenges to tackle. I feel so small because sometimes I truly wonder what my bigger purpose in life is. On the really rough days, I second guess myself because of the challenges that are thrown at me, but, then I am reminded of how far I’ve come, and who has been by my side through the journey, and I find the strength to persevere. 

If you were to tell high school  Megan what she would be accomplishing now, six years later, I would have told you “you’re crazy.” I’ve always been ambitious, but to see the fruit of hard work is a true reminder to never give up. (I’m guilty of just staring at my Aggie ring during class just because I’m still in shock that I have MY VERY OWN Aggie ring…like with my name engraved on it and all! I still remember my first tour to A&M like it was just yesterday) 

In a few months (which I’m sure are going to FLY BY faster than I would like,) I’ll be off to student teach, and before you know it, I’ll be walking across the stage to receive my Bachelors in Science and I’ll be certified to teach 4-8 grade. I definitely could not have gotten where I am without the love, support, and sacrifice from my parents, family, and friends. Mom, Hector, Dyl, Grandma, Grandpa, Tia Diana, Uncle Javier, Tia Dalia, Erick, Vivian, Karina…I love you guys and thank you all for believing in me :) 

Life is just so crazy, and as I get older, I feel like days just go by faster and faster, but I’m enjoying the ride. I’ve also learned to let the silly things go, and just be happy! Forgiveness sure is a tough thing to practice, but it plays a big role in self-happiness and peace. I mean, we’re only human, and we all make mistakes, right? But as one of my favorite professors once shared with us…just (clap clap)…let it go! 

I’m just eternally grateful for all the amazing people in my life, the memories I’ve made, and the opportunities I have laid out in front of me. And truthfully, I really can’t wait to give the world back to my parents one day for all they have sacrificed for my brother and I.

The best is yet to come :)

So, yes, this was a very random post, but welcome to my deep thoughts. I hope you all enjoyed the read, and if you’re going through any trials in your life, just know that you’re never alone; at the end of the day, remember that the big Man upstairs has a master plan for you and everything will work out for the best in the end. 

Until next time lovelies!

Life: One Piece At a Time

So, there is some reasoning behind my blog name, and I think there is no better way to give it some justice than through my first post!

Life is something extremely peculiar. You’re told to live everyday like it’s your last, love each other like there’s no tomorrow, and to worry about about the now. How true these words have proven to be. I’ve learned that life is entirely too precious to hang over the mishaps of yesterday, earlier that week, or even earlier that month. If you don’t watch out, life is surely going to pass you by. That’s just it though, as humans, we feel like failures when we don’t accomplish our goals or when things don’t go the way we’d like. But, you know what, it’s okay to make mistakes, it’s okay to struggle. Little stumbles on the road don’t necessarily break you; they’re what MAKE you.

So by little puzzle pieces, I mean that every accomplishment, every struggle, every experience you have had in life so far is leading up to something so beautiful and wonderful. Something beyond our wildest imagination and dreams. I was sitting down in front of my laptop yesterday, thinking about everything that has happened to me from senior year of high school, to now, my junior year in college. I’ve lost loved ones; I experienced my first heartbreak with a high school boyfriend, but I also met the man of my dreams a few years later in college; I’ve lost best friends who I thought were going to be my life long friends, but I’ve also made friends in the last two years who have proven to be by far the best friends I could ever ask for; I’ve lived pay check to pay check, but I also got my first serious research-based job; I’ve felt lost, but I have also felt extremely proud of who I am slowly becoming. And then I realized, every little experience in my life has played a role in creating who I am today; they were all little puzzle pieces!

On that note, I hope you all know every experience you have had is slowly piecing you into who you were meant to be. It’s all mental. You can either let it make you or break you. But God created us to be strong; He would not give us something we cannot handle. So, just remember that.

Earlier last week, I came across a Thought Catalog article that gave it’s readers 20 pieces of advice for 2016. Number fifteen was my favorite:

“If things are bad right now, it’s probably because you took a chance on something, and that makes you a cool, fearless badass, even if it didn’t work out this time.”

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the course of the last 3-4 years, it’s that taking chances is important! Be the kind of person who isn’t afraid to take risks! It’s infinitely more important than living a life full of “what ifs.” If you fail, that’s okay. Get up and try again! Trust me in that you will become a stronger person. Do what you love. Go for runs, read for fun, or just lay in bed watching Netflix! You do you, boo! There are 7.125 BILLION people on this planet; all of us are living our own lives, facing our own struggles, but also experiencing the beauty of life!

With that being said, I would love to base my blog on the count that every day is a puzzle piece to something beautiful. Be patient, be kind, and love life. We only get one so make it YOUR life. Live without regret, don’t go to sleep mad at anyone, and most importantly, don’t ever give up!
