I’m not the type of person who naturally wants to be busy all the time. My comfort zone is one activity a day… and that’s not what I ended up with this semester.
I signed up to volunteer at a local elementary school. I got a job where I get to learn about graphic design software and recording equipment. I volunteered as a group leader for the new pledge class in my sorority. I contacted a professor about getting involved and ended up with an undergrad research position. I committed to going to bible study, youth group, and Sunday services every week. From a committee position on our homecoming staff to undergrad reserach, football games and sorority parties to work and studying, my schedule is jam packed this semester.
And I will mess up. There will be times when bible study has to get cut, when I have to miss volunteering. There are times when my church schedule will get put on the back burner or I’ll forget to do a homework assignment.
But that’s okay. I’m allowed to mess up. I’m allowed to forget things and. The important idea is that awesome, incredible things happen when you go outside of your comfort zone. It’s good that I’m this busy… It’s something that I’ve never done before, and who knows? Maybe I’ll actually be good at it!
But these things aren’t stressful. These aren’t tasks that I’m being forced into. I want these experiences because they’ll help me in my career, because they’ll help me grow as a person. These are things that I’m passionate about and that I’m going to absolutely love doing.
God’s peace be with you xx
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. [Matthew 5:16]
