I’m a keep-in-touch-er…so when I found out that one of my favorite non-residents from my old RA job had a blog, I dove right in…I read the following words and having been sure how to respond, but loved it so much I just needed to share.
I’m in a MUCH better place now that I’ve stopped trying to make things happen for myself. There’s a quote I read the other day that truly explains how I’ve transitioned:
“There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, ‘All right, then, have it your way.'” – C. S. Lewis
I went from the second kind to the first kind. Knowing I have absolutely no control is frightening, but at the same time it’s comforting… no matter what I do, the plan will continue as it is meant to. I feel that everything is working out for me as He has intended, no thanks to me trying to mess everything up. That includes my personal life, career, friends, family, school plans… everything. For this Type A girl, it’s been a struggle… but one well worth it. (Preppy in Pearls)
