This summer has offered me a lot of time for personal reflection and re-evaluation of the path I’ve set/am setting for myself. So, as this summer comes to an end, I’ve come up with a new mantra to lead me the rest of the way, “Wake Pray Slay.”

If you know me, you know that I love and appreciate structure and planning. From the way I drive, shop, study, etc. there is always rhyme and/or reason to how I do stuff. I’ve been planning my future since I can remember. I knew very young that’d I would be attending the University I’m enrolled in. I knew the strides it took to get there and set out a road map that lead me to where I am now. The only thing that changed overtime was what my actual major would be (better to do it before you get to college).

Upon graduating for high school, there’s been this huge elephant in the room that’s caused a few issues. My almost 19 years of planning only got me up to college and didn’t really offer much for the next 80 years. With no structure and a really confusing map, a fear of the unknown grew. Some people can live by floating through the wind, but when I try to live that spontaneously it feels really weird and uncomfortable. I was really confused on life after college, although that’s a few years away.

So, from all of my contemplating this summer, I’ve realized that I do need to let go and just live. Which is where my new mantra comes in, WakePraySlay. Wake up, pray for guidance, and slay the day. Its still a small amount of structure, but I’m sure it’ll help guide me in the right the direction.

From one millennial to another,
