Life is beautiful…

To be honest I don’t even know where to start, I might be venting right now, so bare with me…

I feel like for the past week or so, I have not been giving life my all! Like I just been going through the motions. I think it’s very easy for us as humans to get caught up in routines and not actually pay attention to what we are doing. A lot of this is directed to my school work. I have finished the social work program at my school and now I’m trying to finish up some gen. eds in this last year and I’m not even going to lie, they suck! Lol. I’m taking classes that I have no interest in at all.. O well, that’s just how it goes sometimes. Balancing school and a full time job is a lot different from balancing school and basketball.. I think that has been my biggest adjustment this year…it’s a lot harder than I thought it would be. When I was playing basketball, it was easier for me to find time to study and get my work done because I could study during travel time… I can’t study at my job!!

So let me tell you about my job anyway.. I freakn’ love it!! I work at a company called Faith, Hope and Charity. It’s a home for kids with special needs. If you know me, you know I love working with kids… But I have never seen myself working with this population. I swear everyday these kids keep me sane… They live life and enjoy it to the fullest! They don’t have a care in the world…all they want to do is be happy. I swear that’s a great outlook on life!! Since I started working this job, these kids have made me learn so much about myself..I only been there for about 3 weeks now and they have already impacted me for a lifetime.

The point that I am trying to get out to you are, don’t go through the motions…but live life as if every moment may be your last moment.

And when it’s time for you to start your career, do something that you love. It will make the universe a better place!

Peace & Love to all the warriors out there!

I know the feeling when it comes to juggling school work and a full time job! Man is it tough. I find myself just going through the motions also. I am taking three fast track classes 2 through BVU and 1 through Iowa Central. I feel like some days are just a blur. Good luck and it's great that you have found a job that you love!
