The Discomfort of Growth

Happy Saturday guys! I hope that your weekend is off to a stellar start. This weekend is full of a lot of prep for me. I made stuff my this week’s lunches, I started a bin of things to take to Greece (I leave in 3 weeks!) and am trying to build a plan for my second degree.

I feel that in this moment that I am in a transitional stage of my life. To be honest, it is so uncomfortable. I lose sleep thinking about how much time I will need to spend studying in the evenings and weekend. I think about the things that I won’t have time for anymore and how I will need to adjust.

I am also a little nervous to head to Europe. There are so many horrible things going on in the world right now and it seems to be more so there than here. I am reassured that I am traveling with a company who will be monitoring any issues and be sure to keep us in safe areas. It is still a bit jarring to think about none the less.

I know that these experiences will only make life better. I have wanted to see Greece for a long time and cannot wait to see the original Olympic grounds, the ancient buildings and all of the mythology. There is so much world history in that region and I look forward to dabbling in it.

Travel and education are all part of growth. I will hopefully end up with more knowledge, both practical and intellectual. As uncomfortable as I am right now, I keep reminding myself that I am growing and that I actually want these experiences. It would be easy to stay status-quo but if I didn’t strive for anything I would be beyond disappointed with myself and down right bored.

Don’t get my wrong, I am proud of where I am in at in life so far but this is not where I want to stay. I just need to suck up the discomforts of life because they should be worth it in the end, right? I suppose that only time will tell…
