(DC Trip 2013)

“The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become - because He made us. He invented us. He invented all the different people that you and I were intended to be. . .It is when I turn to Christ, when I give up myself to His personality, that I first begin to have a real personality of my own.” 

― C.S. Lewis

“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been” 
― Rainer Maria Rilke

As I begin this summer as an undergrad, I'm filled with emotions of anxiety and excitement. University of Maryland, College Park, here I come. I know that you're a blessing in disguise, and that God sees something that I am far too blind to see.

And in that moment

I decided not to cry because it was over, but I smiled because it happened. And in that moment, I allowed myself to be vulnerable. To be vulnerable enough to allow myself to revisit those times. In that moment, I told myself it was okay to smile. It was okay to smile because I fell in love with the person you once were. And it was okay to no longer harbor any heavy feelings or resentment because you were no longer that person. And that I could only wish for your best now.
