Fall fall [update] fall.

fallThis is what I look at on the way to class every single day. Fall has finally come to Winthrop University and I am in love with it. I have never really been a fan of autumn, but for some reason, the picture that I captured just made me fall in love with it this year.

I love the crisp cold air. It reminds me of growing up in Kentucky and playing in the leaves when I was little. I grew up in the eastern part of Kentucky where it was hilly. We got snow… a lot of it. And we got leaves… a lot of them. There was a giant forest in our backyard after all.

For some reason, I’ve been feeling very inspired lately and have been feeling very blessed. I am so lucky that I go to Winthrop. This college has opened so many doors for me and has already given me such an experience …and I’m only a sophomore. I honestly can’t wait to see what the future holds for me espscially since I’m getting so involved with my communications major already.  I was telling my parents the other day that this year is going to be MY year. I have so many plans for this year and I honestly can’t wait to do everything. I just wish that I can do everything all at once. But over the years, I’ve learned that patience is a virtue. If God is making me wait, then I am definitely in good hands.

This year has flown by already. Two weeks until Thanksgiving break and then not too long I will have finals. It’s hard to believe how fast this year has gone by, but I have enjoyed every single second of it.

I can’t wait to see what else God has planned for me. He has given me so much already 🙂

You can do it.

“God is within her, she will not fail.”  -Psalm 46:5

This bible verse is close to my heart because it has gotten me through so much over this past year. Whenever I am feeling stressed or anxious about school or life, I repeat this bible verse over and over again to remind myself that I am capable of doing amazing things. It is important to remember that you ARE strong and that you ARE amazing and that you will NOT fail. It’s easy to forget sometimes. I understand. God has wonderful things planned for every single one of us and we need to remember that even during the most stressful times.

That being said, I am so content with my life right now. For the first time in awhile, I am very happy with everything that I am doing. I’m finally starting to dive into my major, I am getting involved with organizations on campus to help with my major and career and I have wonderful friends who continue to support me even through the toughest of times… It’s their love and their kindness that get me through those hard days. It was true what they say, once you get into a major that you love, it won’t be hard… it will be fun. That’s what I’m doing with Communications.

Remember this, whenever you feel like a failure or when you feel like you can’t get out of your hole that you’re in… Keep telling yourself that you can do it. You are NOT a failure at all. You’re a precious gift and God has an amazing plan for your life.
