Where has the time gone?

I am back after over a year. What have I been up to? Well..


I graduated college. I started my first full time big girl job FOUR days after graduating.I moved across the country. I have found a confidence, new friendships, a new home, yet I feel like I'm missing something.

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."

I say don't cry, but goodness have I cried many times. After graduation. After a rough day at work. During tough conversations with my mom. But I am here, and I am doing a hell of a good job, but I still don't feel fulfilled.


People do no talk about how different and odd life after graduating college is. It's a trial and error type of lifestyle almost everyday. The long distance friendships. The cultivation of new goals because you've completed the ones you made in college. The difficulty of not knowing what "place" you're in (I refuse to say season lol). The worst part of it all is the misunderstandings. The misunderstanding of all your friends being in different places. Some still in undergraduate, some traveling, some navigating moving back home with their parents, some who started a full time job in a whole new state knowing about five people and constantly in a battle of was this the right move? Yes, that last one was quite descriptive because that is where I am at this moment.


I moved to Texas. It constantly feels surreal that I'm here. When I'm driving I feel like I'm on Falls of Neuse Road or even North Patterson Street. But I am here. I did it, yet I feel like I haven't done anything or enough. Maybe that's my humbleness but it's also the negativity I was surrounded by when I first moved because of the misunderstandings. I moved here for me.I moved here because God spoke to me. I moved here because I knew God's plans were bigger than I could imagine. I moved because I put my trust in the Lord and I combined my faith with the works and showed UP for God.


I have come to the understanding that I AM DOING GREAT and you are too. We can brag alittle because we did the damn thing. But once again, where the heck has the time gone? The Saturday game days, the late night apartment hopping, nights in Mully's, the sea of red on Fridays on the pedestrian mall. I will never get those times back, but I am so blessed to have experienced them.


As I navigate my life post-grad, I turn back to my first blog post and a few reminders of those times of hope, confusion, and doubt.


- Don't let this time set you back, don't stop your joy, continuing your faith, or magnifying the Lord.
- God is doing the most, even when you see the least.
- Remember YOU STILL GOT JOY and God's glory is our joy. 
- Don't be afraid. 
- A new time in your life does not mean fear, but opportunity.
- What we can't see is more important than what we can see! 



So until next time...tell me something good in the comments!
