How Do You Know?

Probably the most commonly asked question I get as a 20 year old is, "What's your major?" "Right now my major is Family and Consumer Sciences Secondary Education, but that isn't really what I want to do soooo I just don't know." I'm serious that is how I usually answer. I mean being a teacher is great in theory.. out of school by 2:30-3 ish, weekends off, summers off, decent breaks throughout the year. But then I think about all the grading and extra stuff that comes along with teaching. Is it really my calling? No, I don't think so. Should I settle? No, probably not. Do I know what I REALLY want to spend the rest of my life doing? No, sure don't. It's pretty scary.

I do know that I love creating things with my hands. I love working on art projects, adding details to cupcakes, cookies, and cake-pops, painting, and creating new things. It just makes me HAPPY. But how can I support my self by doing those things? I don't really know to be honest with you. Of course it's always been a dream of mine to own a bakery or something along those lines, but how practical is that? Some folks opinion is "very practical, you can do it!" and others are like "places like that don't usually last long and don't make any money". Well cool, thanks for the feedback. It makes me want to pull my hair out. I'm 20... how am I supposed to know what I want to do for THE REST OF MY LIFE?!?! I'm about to be a Junior in college and I am still not 100% sure what I want to major in. Stressful. What I do know is that I'm going to keep on keeping on. I'll get a degree in something, and hopefully be able to use it in that career.

I found this quote and It makes sense to me..

"When we were five, they asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Our things were answers like astronaut, president, or in my case, princess… When we were ten, they asked us again. We answered - rock star, cowboy, or in my case, gold medallist… But now that we’ve grown up, they want a more serious answer. Well, how about this… Who the hell knows? This isn’t a time to make hard and fast decisions. This is the time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train and get stuck somewhere. Fall in love - a lot. Major in philosophy because there’s no way to make a career out of that. Change your mind. Then change it again because nothing is permanent. So make as many mistakes as you can. That way, someday, when they ask again what we want to be… We won’t have to guess. We’ll know." -Eclipse

So yeah.. I think I'll just be a princess.

One day a few weeks ago I went to a Chinese restaurant with one of my friends. I didn't eat, but they brought me a fortune cookie at the end. I LOVE fortune cookies so I was excited to read it. It said, "A new relationship is about to blossom, you will be greatly blessed." I was like YAY, finally, about time!!!

I've been in an extra happy mood lately and I have that fortune to thank. Even though a "new relationship" hasn't blossomed yet, I know it will one day. It didn't specify what type of relationship so it could be anything. I am volunteering at a Lighthouse Family Retreat in a few weeks and it could be a new relationship with a child who was cancer. It could be a potential boyfriend. It could be my future little. Only God knows.

Some people are like, "It's a fortune, get over it. Those things never happen." However I am optimistic and I like to think there is a reason for everything. There was a reason for me getting that fortune. So I have been praying for my future little, my future husband, and the children and families who are facing with cancer that I am about to spend a week with. And I am so excited for all three! I'll be driving down the road by myself just cheesing. Because I have no reason not to smile. Life is good, getting better all the time, and someday someone will walk into my life and make me realize why it never worked out with anyone else.

Life is exciting!

I am so lucky to have such an amazing daddy to make days like to day a little easier. He keeps me strong and I cannot wait to hug his neck any time I want to in Heaven.

I thank my God every time I remember you. Philippians 1:3
