This Christmas is going to be a very happy time. God has given me so much and I am thankful for it all. I am a very talented person, and the job I was in was just not the one for me. There is nothing wrong with me walking away from this. I will find my niche somewhere....no one said that the first job you ever have is going to be the one that you stay in.
I am so very glad that I am going to Spain. My parents are really nice to let me move back until I get back on my feet. I felt a little guilty when faced with the idea, but my mom doesn't just give me hugs. She told me that I am a person who contributes, and not a person who uses her parents. I hope I never get to that point. I am sure I'm not that person.
I am a person who likes to dream and likes to pine away for things. My issue in life has been that I am very good at dreaming of my future, not so good at making it happen. I intend to make that happen, professionally and personally.
I am going to see what God has in store for me. I love the fact that I chose to buy some books to do a paper between my second and third years of UNISSIST. The Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila has really spoken to me. Here's a few things that I have gotten from it.
- God sends us challenges because he cares for us and knows we can handle them.
- Being humble means realizing that without God, nothing good can happen.
- God might take time in making a decision, and it might not be the one we want, but it's for the best. We need to surrender ourselves to his will.
- True, lasting peace is only to be found in God.
