Hello Everyone! I hope life is treating you well. It has been a while since I have posted and life has been crazy but, wonderful. Currently, I am in my last semester of college and student teaching full time. I am student teaching in a first-grade classroom Monday through Friday and it is very rewarding and also exhausting. Teaching a hard work but I cannot imagine doing anything else for a career. There are good days, bad days and days that are in between but, the good outweigh the bad. Even though my students can drive me crazy sometimes, I absolutely love them and love being able to pour into their lives and see them grow. In teaching many hugs, tears, thank yous and fun times that make it all worth it because I know I am making a difference.
I also got engaged on Thanksgiving Day and am currently planning my wedding while working, taking classes, and student teaching. My plate is full but, I know it is all going to be worth it! Planning my wedding has been so much fun from cake tasting to choosing my wedding dress to choosing my bridesmaid’s dresses. I have really enjoyed spending time with my fiancé and creating a registry and looking for an apartment. Everything is falling into place and I am so beyond excited to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. During this season I am so very blessed to have such supportive friends and family who have helped me and have made this process easier and smoother! I can’t imagine my life without them.
Honestly, this season in my life has been overwhelming sometimes and I have to keep reminding myself that it is just a season and to enjoy this season that I am in. I keep reminding myself of that because I will only graduate from college once and I will only plan my wedding and get married once. So it is not worth getting stressed out or overwhelmed with because it will all be worth it and I might as well enjoy every part of this season of my life because it is coming to an end and I know that if I can get through this then I can get through anything. I am not going to let anyone or anything steal my joy and I will continue to have peace even when I have a lot going on at once. I wouldn’t be given anything I couldn’t handle but, I am capable of more than I know.
I say all of this to tell you to enjoy the season of life you are in because seasons come and go. Time goes by so fast in life and no one wants to look back at their life and regret not enjoying and having fun during the busy times in their life because that is when you start to miss out on the good things happening in life because you are so focused on how much you have on your plate. No matter how much you have going on in life, take time to enjoy each season you are in because it may only happen once and it will all work out and be worth it! You were made for such a time as this!
You are awesome and I hope you enjoy your Friday! Enjoy this picture of my fiancé proposing to me. It was such a fairytale moment that will never be forgotten!
