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.
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.
