Take a look into my scattered thoughts over the past two months:
I graduate from law school in five months.
I’m sitting right here, on the cusp of my dreams.
This time last year I could’ve sworn that I would be feeling elated right now.
Don’t get me wrong, I am excited about graduating, FOR THE LAST TIME, but at the same time it’s weird. I’m really done with school. WOW.
I have been a student my entire life.
This semester has been all about growth for me. Honestly, these past three years have.
It’s so uncomfortable to feel yourself budding. I’ve sown for a long time to be right here where I am, and now that I am here, I don’t know how to feel.
I have always struggled getting outside of my comfort zone, that’s why being on the hinge of this transitional phase feels awkward.
Honestly speaking, I have wanted to be an adult since I was like 8. It’s always just seemed so cool. NEWSFLASH: Aint nothin’ cool about paying bills lol.
Now that it’s here…coming at me full throttle, I am low-key panicking!
With the help of God alone, I have solidified a job post-graduation. Though highly appreciative, this also brings me slight apprehension. Thinking about myself waking up at the crack of dawn to go sit at my desk in my office of a law firm makes me squeal and squirm on the inside lol.
Like this is really happening, I am about to be whole full-grown adult out here lol.
I am changing, each and every day. I feel God shifting me into who I am becoming, and it is very uncomfortable.
To anyone who may be in the budding phase, stay encouraged. Know you’re not alone. Discomfort breeds growth. With change comes a fresh perspective. Suit up and enjoy the ride.
