Time and Change

Time goes by so quickly. I can't believe my first year of college is almost over. It's been good and bad; there's been ups and downs. There's been a lot I've learned, and I've met some wonderful people... and some weird ones :). I've been challenged, and I've grown. But one thing's for sure, ultimately, it has sure been a great adventure!

Change can be scary, and I know I was worried about going to college, but you need change. That's how life goes on. Not all change seems good, but you can make all change good. You can accept it, use it, and benefit from it, or you can run in the opposite direction, fearing what it might bring. Maybe you've been putting off a change because you don't want to lose the life you have now, but who knows, maybe the change will bring an even better life to you.

Be wise with the choices you make in your life, but also be audacious. Don't let fear hold you back from moving forward in life, from embracing change. Time will go forward with or without your consent, you might as well go along with it and with the new seasons it brings. In a blink of an eye, months will turn to years, and you'll be somewhere entirely different from where you are today. I  hope it will be someplace better. I hope you'll have had joy and difficulties that have made you stronger. I hope you'll have met some incredible friends and grown in leaps and bounds. I hope you'll have let change into your life, and I hope you'll go along for the ride. Because after all, it sure is a great adventure!
