“What did you learn this summer?” I was taken back by the question. I couldn’t think of a single thing for a few moments, and now I finally am getting a chance to settle down and think.
I think this summer, I’ve had the chance to reflect on myself. I’ve been avoiding people and avoiding major concerns in my life since January, but it’s really finally settled down. I’ve confronted them as they’ve been reaching their threshold. I’ve finished unpacking, unraveling, and really settled down in a comfortable place in my life. I’m in a good place right now, with people who support me and who are there for me every step of the way. And as prayers go, I hope I stay in this place with a vision in sight. Besides, college is only four years, a relatively short span of time. And as every senior says, college will fly by.
The thing was, I didn’t mind being that lost – to a certain extent. It wasn’t bad, however confusing it was. But now, I’m genuinely excited for everything that’s going to happen so soon and everything that’s happening now. Everything’s just really good right now… and it’s been a really long time since that statement has been true. I’ve always had some sort of future I had to plan ahead, figure out the kinks, so everything would work out.
In all honesty, I don’t know what I’ve learned this summer. Maybe I’ve learned and figured out how to love myself more(?) as cliche as that sounds. But I don’t think I really know. All I feel right now, a week after summer vacation, is that I’ve endured and I’ve overcome. So yeah, I’m at a cool place right now, and am really enjoying every moment of it. I appreciate every single person who has affected my life, no matter in which manner they did. Everyone is worthwhile and great in their own stories. And I’m just happy our stories had the chance to align at least once. 🙂
And thank you, to you for reading my snippets of a story.
