You Graduated, Now What?

Do me a favor, and take a quick breath. And stop listening to them. Stop trying to answer the constant questions from everyone around you. Stop trying to have all the answers.Because, you won’t have them. You don’t have them.

And that is okayNot knowing is okay. And I want you to know that. Because you just graduated and that is a huge stinking accomplishment.

A HUGE accomplishment.

And you should be proud of yourself for that.

And now that you’ve taken a few deep breaths, you can think a little clearer. You can finally think about what you dream as lay your head down at night. You can think about those things that you love, those things makes you giddy, those things that you know are part of your plan but you’re not so sure how to do it. And do it. 

Figure out who you are and who you want to become and do it.

If you dream it you can do it. So do it.

By starting small. By getting planted where you are. By responding to that one random coffee date, or diving into that position that isn’t paid but is so where you want to be.

Give all you got into what you want, and don’t give a dang what the world thinks.

Embrace the awkward tension of not knowing what the heck you want to do with your life and take the little big baby steps that will one day get you there.

Forget about the failure. Forget about the money. Forget about the time. And just give it all you’ve got. Because every step leads you somewhere, every decision is one step closer to your dream. And your dream can’t start without you.

Oh- and always remember that your Heavenly Father doesn’t have a watch so it might take awhile (to you, not Him- more on this frustrating truth in a later post).

Trust yourself, pay the bills, and dream the dreams.

And I promise He won’t disappoint.

See ya soon,

Stephanie Lynn
