I have been asking myself that question recently. With my first degree over and a range of life changing decisions to make, this is the most important question to answer. Anyone who is close to me will probably tell you that I always overthink and analyze everything, from which route to take to University in the morning, how many drinks to serve at a party, to what career choice I should make. Most times, those that counsel me: friends, family, colleagues or complete strangers, soon realise that a lot of what they ask me to think about, I already have – in detail. However, the fact that I have others speaking to me about the problems I face puts things in perspective, which is always useful.
Unfortunately, due to my need to over analyse, I sometimes forget who is at the center of my life - God.
He has seen me through the hardest points in my life by placing the right people in my path to help me, console me, advise me or cry with me. For that, I am eternally grateful. There are also opportunities that have come my way through no hustle on my part or parent’s connections. Rather through me being myself, and God touching people’s hearts to give me the opportunity to learn and listen to their advice.
In a world that is so full of negativity, constant badgering from the haters and other distractions, remember to seek refuge in His love. I do not mean that in a grandiose way, but rather, do not forget to pray, abandon your stress and worries, and have faith.
I know that letting go is sometimes the hardest choice that we have to make. I dare you to try it.
Have a good week!
