My Dreams for the Future

IMG_9698
College is a strange time in life. You are both independent and dependent, mature and immature, focused on the future yet trying to enjoy the present. I am half way done with college, and the last two years have simultaneously flown by and taken their sweet time. Time is funny, isn’t it? And while I am all for living in the moment and soaking up every detail, I also love dreaming about my future.

Dreaming of the future excites me. I can’t wait to see what God has in store, which dreams he’s waiting to breath life into and how he will change me in the process. I feel as though I’m standing on the precipice of the rest of my life peering over the edge- a wonderful and terrifying place to be.

I want to share a few of my dreams in this space today, my version of the I Have A Dream Speech, except not nearly as empowering! One day I can look back on them in the months and years to come and be grateful. Because if I’m anything, it’s grateful. 

I dream of returning to Germany one day. I don’t know what it will look like, but I know Germany is not through with my heart yet. Maybe I will apply for a Fullbright Scholarship, maybe grad school, who knows?!

I dream of writing for a living. I love this craft. It makes my heart sing. I can imagine myself working in editing, publishing, blogging, copywriting, screenwriting, etc.! I’m so glad I found something I’m talented in and can pursue moving forward.

I dream of getting married. This dream is still a big ol’ question mark at this point, but I know God will lead my down the right path one day.

I dream of growing this blog. I adore this little blog of mine, and all my lovely readers. You make me smile. It is so rewarding to look back on past experiences and moments. I hope to continue to improve and grow this blog for years to come!

I dream of traveling around the country. This is such a beautiful, vast country we live in, and I’d be amiss not to explore as much of it as I can. My current U.S. bucket list obsession: Utah! I’ve never been and I’m dying to catch a glimpse of those red rocks.IMG_9699IMG_9706IMG_9711IMG_9761IMG_9732IMG_9723IMG_9769IMG_9799IMG_9805
Thanks for putting up with my ramblings! It is energizing and inspiring to think about the future. Take a deep breath, and keep moving forward.

Question of the Day
Do you have dreams for the future? Do you ever verbalize them? It sure feels good to write them down.

  1. Travel to New Orleans once I’m back there and settled in! I’m coming home from Germany right before Thanksgiving, and I can’t wait to travel around my home country. It’s funny how you realize you’ve taken its beauty for granted when you go away for so long.

    1. Ah, so true, sometimes we miss the beauty in our own backyards! When I came back from Germany, I was so sad that I couldn’t travel anymore, but then I realized that I can- just because it’s in my own country, doesn’t make it any less exciting or beautiful 🙂
