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!
