Wow! It has been a long time! There were many days that I wanted to write, especially about what’s happened in my life in last months, but so much has happened that its hard.

First of all, in my last post I expounded on the difficulties I had in Blocking and said that I’d be Blocking again this semester. Well, I’m not. To make a long story short, it was difficult to find me a placement because all the teachers who wanted a student teacher already had one. So, I had to change my major. It broke my heart, but I didn’t have a choice. I felt like a failure and that everything had been a waste.

It has taken me a while to think through everything, which is partly why I haven’t written, but I’ve finally figured a few things out…

…just because I fail at something doesn’t make me a failure
…God doesn’t always have a perfect path that I have to follow in order to do
His will
…life is about more than proving myself
…asking for help doesn’t make me weak
…I have the best friends in the world
…I’m not a burden
…I’m not incompetent

I’ve always struggled to gage my personal and spiritual growth. Often I don’t see how I’m growing when others do. But looking at that list shows me that I am indeed growing and changing in good ways. That makes me happy!
