I love the end of this poem!! It feels like my life at the moment. I'm so concentrated on finishing this semster, and yet I have so many miles to go before I get a break - a rest. But I have to have trudge on because I've made a commitment to everyone and I've expectations to fulfill. It would be very easy to give up sometimes. To just go into those dark deep woods and lay down with my eyes closed... just breath. But - I'm so close to the end and there's nothing on this earth that could make me stop now. I don't care if I never use this degree in my life - I will at least have the knowledge that I did it. That I faced obstacles and worked hard and made my way. I'll still be the first person in my family to finish college... that's such a burden to be honest. It leaves little room for mistakes because so many people are looking to you to get it right.
If you have nothing to create, then perhaps you create yourself. - Jung
I'm in a constant state of perpetual limbo. I just graduated from Georgia Southern University with a degree in Graphic Design and now it's out into the wide world to try and find my niche. It's a scary thing, but I'm ready for the rest of my life to begin. I just married my high school sweetheart barefoot on the beach in beautiful Maui! We're not perfect, but we're definitely perfect for each other and I couldn't be more thrilled to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. I'm trying to create the life that I want to be apart of and grow gracefully into the woman that I'm meant to become. Most days I fail horribly - but at least I'm still trying and that's all I can ask of myself.
