It’s been a long time since I’ve been on here. It would be silly for me to make an excuse, so all I can say is that I’ve been putting focus into other aspects of my life. With graduation nearing in just a short month, I’ve been on the hunt for a job like a madwoman. I suppose I never realized how quickly life can change or how quickly four years of college can fly by. While still in college, you always have summer to look forward to. You always know that you’ll be going back to school for another year. When you finally get to graduation, you realize that everything beyond is unknown.
Am I scared? Absolutely. It’s hard not to be scared. However, I am lucky enough to have some wise people in my life that tell me it’s going to be hard, but everything will work out ONLY if you are positive that it will. Searching for a job is about believing in your capabilities. It is about the dream and the heart that you put into all of your hard work. Not until you feel confident in yourself fully will that dream job actually fall into your hands.
A few weeks ago, I watched the movie “Life of Pi”. I got about halfway through it and wondered why everyone was raving about it. It wasn’t until the credits rolled that it’s message truly clicked with me. I won’t spoil the meaning for anyone who hasn’t seen it, but it makes you truly reflect on your spirituality and beliefs. The film is based on a book by Yann Martel which I have not yet read. However, I was looking up some of the quotes from the movie and stumbled upon this one:
“I must say a word about fear. It is life’s only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life. It is a clever, treacherous adversary, how well I know. It has no decency, respects no law or convention, shows no mercy. It goes for your weakest spot, which it finds with unnerving ease. It begins in your mind always. So you must fight hard to express it. You must fight hard to shine the light of words upon it. Because if you don’t, if your fear becomes a wordless darkness that you avoid, perhaps even manage to forget, you open yourself to further attacks of fear because you never truly fought the opponent who defeated you.” -Yann Martel
Some very powerful words. I am reminded of this quote everyday and remember to not let the fear of the unknown defeat me. I am unlimited in my potential. Good things will come to me and to you as well….if you choose to believe it with all of your heart.
I want to let you know that I am still dancing. My editing is very behind. I committed to this project over a year ago and I will finish it. Please keep on the lookout. I have something very special planned to commemorate the end of my college career:)
