To The Girl Who Had A Plan

A letter to the girl whose life is not going according to her plan.

“I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.” - William Ernest Henley

Since we were little girls we have been asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” We responded with astronauts, teachers, presidents, nurses, etc. Then we start growing up, and our plans change.

In middle school, our plans were molded based on our friends and whatever was cool at the time. Eventually, we went to high school and this question became serious, along with some others: “What are your plans for college?” “What are you going to major in?” “When do you think you’ll get married?” “Are you going to stay friends with your friends?” We are bombarded with these questions we are supposed to have answers to, so we start making plans.

Plans, like going to college with our best friends and getting a degree we’ve been dreaming about. Plans, to get married as soon as we can. We make plans for how to lose weight and get healthy. We make plans for our weddings and children.

We fill our Pinterest boards with these dreams and hopes that we have, which are really great things to do, but what happens when you don’t get into that college? What happens when your best friend chooses to go somewhere else? Or, what if you don’t get the scholarship you need or the awards you thought you deserved. Maybe, the guy you thought you would marry breaks your heart. You might gain a few pounds instead of losing them. Your parents get divorced. Someone you love gets cancer. You don’t get the grades you need. You don’t make that collegiate sports team. The sorority you’re a legacy to, drops you. You didn’t get the job or internship you applied for. What happens to you when this plan doesn’t go your way?

I’ve been there.

The answer for that is “I have this hope that is an anchor for my soul.” Soon we all realize we are not the captain of our fate. We don’t have everything under control nor will we ever have control of every situation in our lives. But, there is someone who is working all things together for the good of those who love him, who has a plan and a purpose for the lives of his children. His name is Jesus. When life takes a turn you aren’t expecting, those are the times you have to cling to Him the tightest, trusting that His plan is what is best. That is easier said than done, but keep pursuing Him. I have found in my life that His plans were always better than mine, and slowly He’s revealing that to me.

The end of your plan isn’t the end of your life. There is more out there. You may not be the captain of your fate, but you can be the master of your soul. You can choose to be happy despite your circumstances. You can change directions at any point and go a different way. You can take the bad and make something beautiful out of it, if you allow God to work in your heart.

So, make the best of that school you did get in to. Own it. Make new friends- you may find they are better than the old ones. Apply for more scholarships, or get a job. Move on from the guy that broke your heart; he does not deserve you. God has a guy lined up for you who will love you completely. Spend all the time you can with the loved one with cancer. Pray, pray hard for healing. Study more. Apply for more jobs, or try to spend your summer serving others instead. Join a different club or get involved in other organizations on campus. Find your delight first in God and then pursue other activities that make you happy; He will give you the desires of your heart.

My friend, it is going to be OK.

Losing Power For A Couple Days Wasn't As Bad As I Thought It Would Be

The power went out because of Hurricane Michael, but we sure didn't.

On October 11, 2018, Hurricane Michael hit my home state of Virginia after traveling up the whole east coast. Over 20 people died, flooding occurred everywhere, and almost 1.3 million people were left without power. The day after, my university let out for fall break. Little did I know that I would come home to a county where 25,000 out of a total population of 30,000 people were out of power, including my family. We, meaning my family and I, had no power for a couple of days.

As a University Student, my main concern was how I was going to get my homework done because everything requires a computer and/or a printer and/or a phone, and all three of those require – you guessed it – electricity. Another thing that requires electricity in my house is running water. Yet another thing that requires electricity is a refrigerator, which houses most of our food. Stoves and air conditioning also need electricity. We couldn't shower, wash dishes, watch TV, or heat anything up for meals. Sounds awful, right?

And yet, it was not all that bad. We got some cases of water bottles and found a way to wash only the necessary dishes. Because almost everything essential in our house needs electricity, we just had to find ways to work around the power outage. We flushed our toilets with the drainage water next to our house and my father kept a campfire going all day for every day we were out of power. We invited our neighbors over and had s'mores and mountain pies, which are my absolute favorite campfire foods. One night my mother made dinner that we could cook over the fire and we just sat at our picnic table and joked around.

For the first time in years, my siblings and I spent those days outside. I got to free-read for a while, my siblings played with the neighborhood kids, and my parents chilled out by the fire. We got to relax for a couple of days and make memories that we would not otherwise make, such as burning multiple foods and watching my sister and her friends use old boogie boards to cross the six-inch-deep drainage pond next to our house. I do not by any means wish to go without power for that long again, but I learned that anything is bearable, as long as I am with people I care about, which made the whole experience worth every second.
