I was walking. It was raining. I was looking down…
My roommate and I were on a mission to hand in our application forms for next years housing. Can you believe it? Not even finished completing my first semester as a sophomore and I was forced to think about this!
As far as making decisions go… I just, don’t. I’m that pain-in-the-ass indecisive person who indirectly made her mother pick what color comforter to buy because apparently it’s not socially acceptable to stare at them until the store closes.
Basically, I had to choose between on or off campus housing. Factors such as transportation, cooking and the weather all prominently stood out, waving a white flag, distracting my growth.
On the walk over, I knew I was taking a leap. A small minuscule one that I melodramatically inflated in my head, but still. I’d been having some bad vibes about it, just because I wasn’t 100% sure about my decision…
**The only way to keep my hood up was to tilt my head down. That resulted in me not being able to see ahead. That whole walk, my head filled with all sorts of indecisiveness, my roommate guided me. One foot in front of the other. And repeat.
If I could just apply that with every day life, I think I could actually make it. Taking it one day at a time. Not wasting energy worrying about the future. Everything will turn out just the way it’s supposed to. You just have to take that first step, even when you can’t see the whole staircase.
I’m also making a Q&A video if you have any questions…. 🙂
