Has anyone every felt like nothing you do is ever good enough? If so, that is how I have been feeling about the three tests I have had this week. I spent countless amount of hours in the library studying for each test (Talk about serious bags under someone’s eyes). However, after I walked out of the classroom from taking the tests, I felt like I bombed every one of them. I began to question whether I was fit out for this whole college thing. Am I smart enough to attend what I think is the best college on this universe, Clemson University?
But, as I got to thinking, I’m no longer in high school anymore. College is harder. More studying, homework, and reading is involved (WAAAAAAY MORE). Therefore, I shouldn’t expect to get A’s or high B’s on every single test. (C’s get degrees, am I right?) *jk mom, don’t get mad* Life is too short to stress over the little things like grades. Although getting an education is important, college is also about making memories and connections with people. After college, you will think about that one Tuesday you went out (after studying and doing your homework, of course). Or that one girl you met that shared everything in common with you. You never know when you might need her in the future.
Therefore, we shouldn’t stress ourselves out to the point where we stop adventuring out into the world. Our problems are only temporary with God. So, like it is stated in Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” We need to make everyday count and be thankful for every problem or blessing.
