Learning to Let Go of Your Post-Grad Timeline
Hey Glow Gang. I think it’s time for a pep talk because here comes graduation season. Yet again another reminder that we aren’t where we want to be…JUST GREAT.
Adulting sucks. SUCKS. I spent thousands of dollars on a college degree and they didn’t have the decency to tell me that my life would turn out nothing like I imagined. That all the study sessions and tests wouldn’t be followed by an immediate position in the company of my dreams and fulfilling my purpose. All our lives we are taught to go to school, work really hard and end up at a great job but they never told us about the awkward in-between stage of graduation and really stepping into what we were meant to do. What’s even worse is that some may never step into that because they give up and jump ahead of God’s timeline. Are you feeling like that right now?
Ready to give up.
Confident that your dreams were meant to stay in your head.
Well if so then this message is right on time. YOU WERE NEVER MEANT TO SETTLE. You were created to dominate the heck out of your dreams and although you can’t see it right now, it’s true.
I believe that the only way you will truly feel free and begin to walk into purpose is when you decide to let go and honestly, you haven’t. You have tried to do things your way. You have grown impatient and that has resulted in frustration over and over. You have painted a picture of how life should look to yourself and your Facebook friends and it has left you hopeless. Depressed even. You see everyone around you getting blessed, not realizing that they also may be struggling with trying to figure out their place in the world. You’re about to give up.
But I came to tell you today that there is a KING/QUEEN in you. There is a small voice that whispers “What if that actually happened? What if I began to live in my calling and be filled with peace and joy?” It’s there because it’s possible. At the beginning of last year I remember being so emotional because I couldn’t understand what God wanted from me. I was doing everything I thought was right. I was sending my resume everywhere. I tried to network. I tried to keep hope but every day I looked at the walls of my mother’s apartment and it reminded me of how much I desperately wanted to feel successful. It was one of the worst feelings ever. I had no money in my bank account but one day I decided that no matter how long it took, I would be all that I was called to be. I haven’t quite figured out what that is yet but I’m not stopping until I do.
Our 20s are supposed to be the most important time of our lives because it’s our trial and error period but in order to discover the life you want you have to TRY. Mistakes will be made but right now is your time to live. You are exactly where you are supposed to be so go do the things you want to do and let go of the need to control everything. You’re going to make. I know it.
