Do you ever look back and wonder what your life would be like if you made a different decision?? 💭
It's my senior year! My last Marthapalooza! My last few months before going into the real world! I'm getting a degree! I actually have to grow up! To think I'll be a Berry College Alumni in 8 months... It's crazy how these years flew by.
I'm half way through my first semester at BYU! It's a whole new world out here! I have been working on a research project on coral acidification. I am so blessed to be given this opportunity, and I thank God for looking after me...
What up?! I'm so pumped to be dancing on the 2018 tour with Justin Bieber! Thank you for always supporting me. I can't wait to see your faces in the crowd!
Oh my god! I can't believe I'm about to graduate! I'm going to miss my sorority sisters so much! But, I can't wait for vet school! 5 more years, here I come!...
Here I actually am, working my a$$ (sorry mom... ) off at 3 jobs, plus learning about/growing my/making connections for online business, so that I can make a living from traveling the world. As I sit here at the dance studio typing this I think about how much I miss the other lives that I had, but I choose to leave or had the opportunity but never experienced at all.
This past weekend, I visited my first home away from home - Berry College. Berry will always have my heart and soul; I will forever be a Viking. The second I got on campus, all of the memories flushed into my brain. It made me wonder if I never should've left Berry in the first place. As the weekend continued, I realized when I was there I didn't have any clue what I wanted to do with my life. If I stayed I'd still be the little innocent flower getting an animal science degree but probably end up opening a dance studio. I wouldn't have received the same opportunities. Berry will always be home, but if we weren't meant to move, we'd have roots instead of feet.
I am so proud of the girl that I have turned into. I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm a completely different person, but I became more ME.
MAYBE THE JOURNEY ISN'T SO MUCH ABOUT BECOMING ANYTHING. MAYBE IT'S ABOUT UNBECOMING EVERYTHING YOU'RE NOT.
The path I decided to take, even with all of the ups and downs, has pulled out the me I've always wanted to be. It is such a great feeling when you run into people from your past and they tell you that you look so YOU. I have gone to so many places, and have gone through so many things in the short 2 years I've been away.
As I sit here at the dance studio typing this I think about how everything I'm doing is leading me to the EXACT PLACE I WANT TO BE.
