All in a year's time.


Last weekend marked one year since I graduated from the University of Kansas.

One whole year.

In the course of a year so much can happen... and here's the thing:

It's not about whether or not somebody else thinks what you're doing is right. It's about doing what's right for you, when you're ready. It's about living your life for you and understanding and taking into consideration the advice and hopes others have for you--but really, truly, at the end of the day, going to bed confident with your decisions.

Are you living your life in a way that makes you happy? A way that makes you proud? Are you being brave with your life and at least giving your biggest dreams a chance though others scoff?

At the end of the day these are the questions you'll have to answer to yourself.

Some of us have found their way. Some have found their homes. Some have started families. And some of us, we're still finding our way.

But you know what?

None of us are doing it right.
None of us are doing it wrong. 

All that matters is that we're doing it the best we can.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As for me, I'm still finding my way. I'm still fumbling and waiting and fickle. I have to remind myself that that's OK. Daily.

But, the adventures I've since had are more than I could have ever expected. And truly, I'm confident about my first year post-graduation.

More than anything, if it's been any indication of what's to come, I am ready.

  1. A few weeks marked a year from me graduating from college, as well. Isn't it crazy how fast the last year has flown? I know that I have grown so much, and I never would have guessed I would be where I am. With that being said, I am extremely proud of chasing about my fears, instead of running away from them, all while living a life I am proud of. Thanks for your words!

  2. It's true- no one is doing anything right OR wrong. I'm not sure that I'm doing the best I can, but I will be soon. xx
