lessons in life

April 11, 2011

It’s almost officially one month until I graduate and as I was looking at my calendar I was thinking back on my four years at college and all of the lessons I’ve learned.

Some were reinforced, some awakened, some brand new.

This one was strengthened.

I’ve had this picture saved on my desktop for years and every time I see it I smile and get a little boost of confidence and encouragement.

(*I don’t remember where I got it/ I don’t have the source link.)


Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. —Joshua 1:19


What’s a life lesson or motto that you try to stay true to?

Just because it’s Monday…name the most delicious food you ate this weekend! I usually don’t eat much meat but I was craving a cheeseburger. It rocked my world. And I think it may have pumped up my muscles. (Well, maybe not.)

    my favorite phrase – Whatever You Focus On Gets Bigger. I turn that into a reminder to think positive and focus on the good. may as well, right?

    The weeks leading up to graduation are definitely bittersweet. Enjoy every moment of them!

    My motto is courtesy of my mentor in journalism — “Dream Big; Work Hard.” It encapsulates my outlook so perfectly πŸ™‚

    “You always are where you’re meant to be.” That’s something my mom told me years ago when i was feeling discouraged about an internship I was doing. I always remember that no matter where I am or what I’m doing in life. Everything we experience, good or bad, turns into a lesson learned. πŸ™‚
