I’m happy today. ☀️ I’m currently sitting on my front steps, in the sunshine, with bare feet. I am SO. MUCH. HAPPIER. when it is warm and sunny outside. I had another amazing OCR training session this morning (LOTS of farmer carries, burpees, tire flips, battle ropes, army crawls, pull ups and agility work). And then I had a phone call with my academic advisor who is a former fellow with the Epidemic Intelligence Service (DREAM JOB). Lately we’ve been so stressed out about the moving process, selling a vehicle and downsizing our possessions significantly. But today I’m remembering my “why”. These sacrifices are not for nothing...I have a fire inside. I deeply want to work with diseases that affect citizens in developing nations. And even more specifically, I want to study viral hemorrhagic fevers. Getting accepted into GWU and moving to our nation’s capital is an amazing opportunity that is going to open so many doors for me. The Lord been gently reminding me lately to just trust him to get us there. Faith is not something we just have - we must actively choose to trust and believe. 💪 So I’m putting on my big girl pants and working hard for my future, and I’m choosing to trust that the Lord will provide and carry us through. ☀️ 🌳👩🏻🔬 Pray BIG prayers, friends, and then work hard to achieve your dreams.
