The calm, peaceful, mountain air
The breeze that sweeps across the lake and through the campus
The town square consisting of locally owned coffee shops, a gazebo and the old fashioned inn
The smiling faces you recognize after merely three weeks surrounding you at every local spot in town
The conversations exchanged between new found summer friends
The blissful music blasting through the speakers
This is my summer in New London and I could not be happier.
The fact is, I need God to help me love God. And if I need His help to love Him, a perfect being, then I definitely need His help to love other, fault-filled human beings.
Where have the past two years gone, I am having hard time fathoming the very idea that I am half way done with my college career and that much closer to entering into..[wait for it]…the real world! The reality of adulthood is beginning to enter the forefront of my thoughts, and as I wake up at 5am to dart off to the hospital and pull near all nighters to study for my exams I ask myself…is this really what I want for the rest of my life? And then there’s the days when I’m at the hospital interacting with my patients and receiving positive feedback from them, feeling confident in my practice and that’s when I remember why I’m doing it all and that it is worth it! Thus, I believe that I am ready. Sure I want to savor the next two years ahead of me, sure I am scared that if I blink too fast it will all be gone, sure I’m terrified of settling down and having bills to pay. Yet, I am also ready—I am ready for the challenges life has ahead of me, for all the people I have yet to meet, and all things I have yet to experience.
Bring it life.
