Adjusting back to this semester is harder than I thought it was going to be. Between new classes and trying to figure out who you will spend time with considering the new classes, where you don't really seem to see the same people. That kind of makes me sad because I want so badly to form those life long friendships and it is hard when you have to do all of this switching around.
Honestly, why am I even worried about that? If we are meant to be friends, we will be friends, right? It took a little while in high school to really build those strong friendships and it will take a while to get those here. I just need to remember that! Sorry... I am worrying too much! Worrying is not healthy and it comes from the devil That is exactly why I decided to right down a list of goals for this semester. When I say I worry, I mean I worry a lot. It really isn't healthy, but with all the new things that I am not yet certain about, it is hard not to worry. The best thing to do with worry, I have learned, is to give it all to God. I remember having this same feeling last semester and look how well everything turned out! I am just waiting for that to happen this semester. So, while I am waiting, I decided to make things easier by writing my goals down.
1. Read a bible verse/devotional everyday.
2. Attend Church every Sunday.
3. Pray instead of worrying.
4. Write Southern and Thankful everyday.
5. Keep up with my hometown friends.
6. Love my family as much as possible.
7. Pass stats and of course my other classes.
8. Form meaningful realtionships.
9. Devote time to giving back to the community and my fraternity.
10. Remember that God is always with me.
11. Remember that I am here following his plan.
12. Do my best to persuade potential students to attend TCU though stufo.
13. Always Dream.
14. Have Fun (watch Netflix).
15. Live in the moment.
Life is to great to not enjoy it. I often find myself consumed with other things and that is not healthy. I feel like these goals are all very doable and all very appropriate for me during this time of transition. I have to remember that I am not in control of the future. I am here to be in the moment and enjoy every second of it. This post is nothing bad, I just thought I would share how I hope to improve, so that at the end of the semester I can see my progress!
God has plan and all these things that I have taken to pray about will work themselves out. I just don't like the unknown in life, but right now that seems to be all I know... How ironic, right? I am worried about the smallest things like future tests and these new classes, to the big things like finding a roommate next year and wanting so badly to have wonderful friendships with people. The best thing that I can do is pray (feel pray to lift me up in your prayers if you would like... I need all I can get haha) and focus on these 15 goals that are so great and so perfect for me in this chapter of my life. You may not get much out of this post, but I know it is going to be so beneficial to me! I am so thankful for God's presence in my life and the way he works all of my worries out. I am blessed to have such a cool God! Here's to a, hopefully, successful semester that GOD has planned! I can already tell you, I am thankful!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way. A student at Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
