So I am 23 years old now. All I can say is that I am glad to be alive. Glad that I live in times like this time. We are in exciting times when things are pretty different. I press in on my dreams practicing discernment and learning when to wait and when to press in fearless and faithfully.
I am working hard and happy with the work that I am doing, but I am happy to know that I am not going to stay here forever. I wish things were working out faster, because I am 23 after all. But I know that bread throw on the water will return in many days.
Some times it is hard to wait, hard to press in, and hard to look forward with a smile. There are times when I think about only classmates getting married and having babies I wonder about the choices that I made concerning waiting. Then I think of people like Omar Landero, a guy in my high school 3 science classes. He is in Cuba studying to be a MD! Last time I spoke to his brother, he only had a few years left.... that is ending soon.
But then I see my sister friends and I realize I am in a good place. When I get the Word I will press in and that pressing in is going to be great! Just wait with me and see. I dare you.
