There is something about life that can be just as awe inspiring and mysterious as the sky. You never know where it will take you or what it will teach you next. Which is why I enjoy this galaxy print skirt - its got that same air of mystery and intrigue, you know?
So...I feel almost guilty about confessing this, but I've decided on a different major. How wishy-washy of me, right? However, I believe that my hard-heartedness about ignoring my artistic side is a shame. The reason I set my mind on Dental Assisting was because I reasoned to myself that it was the logical choice. The smart one. The one that would secure myself a steady future.
Yet in the back of my mind, I'd already planned that after getting a job in the dental field, I would return to school and pursue what I really wanted - photography or graphic design. Anything that would reignite the love I have for art. Before, I used to spend hours just drawing and painting. I entered competitions and won first place ribbons and recognition. Yet, once high school came and I started thinking about the future, I decided this side of myself was useless. How would it earn me an income I could live off of? How was it practical?
You know, I often pray that God would give me guidance in what I should do. I've juggled different ideas around in my head of what I could pursue, but most of them get nixed because I think to myself, "What could I possibly get a job in with that?"
I think He's been giving me a sign though, one that I've tried ignoring.
When I started posting my photography on Facebook, I got a few nice compliments. However, this summer, which is when I decided on Dental Assisting, the comments and requests started pouring in about my photography. People have offered to pay me if I'd do photos for them, if I'm taking photography classes, and telling me that I have talent.
Is this His way of telling me this is what I should do? I'd like to think it is.
Looking at the schedule I'd set up for myself, I couldn't help but feel relief as I selected each one and slowly clicked "Remove course." Then, with building excitement, I pulled up my new classes and worked on a completely different schedule. So say hello to the newest Visual Arts major. After taking a look at the required courses for my new degree, I can't help but start giddily skipping around and doing cartwheels. Drawing, Ceramics, and Design are required? No problem! They may be challenging, but I'm eager to dig in and get back to what I've always truly loved.
God gives us talents that should be used. Don't brush them aside and lay them to waste.
I'm excited about the future, and I can't wait to share it with you!
