For so long there was so much uncertainty in my life. And although there will always be uncertainty, I have reached a state of stability that I had only ever dreamed of. The past few years have been some of the most difficult of my life. However, the past twelve months, despite the difficulties of change, have served as a saving grace. Some moments were bittersweet, but sweet, nevertheless. And each one plays a crucial role to my future.
Most importantly, I have proved to myself, first and foremost, that I am capable. I have harbored so much doubt over the years, that I often questioned my potential. God has graced me with confidence in my work, in my education, and in every aspect of myself, that was never there before. He has allowed the tears of the past few years to clear my vision so I see the world as I do now–terribly magnificent.
As I’m getting older, advancing in my studies for my future career, and meeting people who are crucial to my life, I am learning more about myself and the world, daily. I try to have a positive mindset, always, but sometimes I need to remove the rose-colored glasses to see the world for what it is so that I can live accordingly. I have been deeply hurt, particularly the past year, as I have studied and examined the injustices in the world. What hurts more is not that these injustices occur, but rather that millions of people around the globe do not care, or even know, about them. While some suffer an unimaginable suffering, others worry only about the fun things they will do tonight. It is our responsibility, as fellow residents of this earth and as humanity, to fight for justice, or at the very least acknowledge its absence.
