Quarter-life Crisis?

I just got done having a conversation with a friend who said she was going through a quarter-life crisis. I found this oddly amusing because in June, when I turned 24, I panicked. I was absolutely NOT okay with it. I am pretty sure that the week leading up to my birthday is what made me do the things I am doing today. I felt like I had not accomplished anything in life and a quarter of a century was just a year away! Growing up, I had always assumed I would be married by 18, pregnant by 19 and have a baby at 20. Just like my mom, my Mimi and my Memom… its what we do. But, 24 came around and I was in a job I HATED, I had no degree, AND I had no baby. All I had was the husband. What was that about? Well, one had to change and for some unknown reason, we decided to put my one and only dream of being a mommy aside and let me get through some school. I never wanted school, I wanted family.

Now that I am 3 weeks into school, I must say that so far, I think I made the right decision. I have mentioned it before and I’m sure I will continue mentioning, I let God take control of this one. I stopped, stepped back and asked what He thought I should do.

I’m pretty sure he was right.
