This week is going to be one of the best weeks. BECAUSE I’M GOING HOME!!! I’m smiling to tears at writing this. I’m so excited that it’s becoming emotional.
This morning I danced in front of a mirror. I was like a little kid. It finally hit me. I’m done!
I’m continually packing. Packing is a time of transition for me. I can’t help but think of all the many more experiences I’ve yet to experience. I wonder… where will I travel to next? Where will the Army take me over the next 5 years? Who/what will I be in 2 years? It’s accomplishing goals that spurs these thoughts.
BOLC is my last hurdle in my 6 year plan that I set up for myself when I was 16 years old. I decided roughly what I wanted my life to look like and it’s been such a blessing to experience the highs and lows of it all.
For those of you who don’t know… My life has looked a little like this:
16 years — graduate high school
17 years — start Jr. college
18 years — Enlist in the Army
19 years — graduate with my AA, graduate basic & AIT (boot camp), move out of my parents, start at UC Davis
20 years — Start OCS
21 years — graduate college, commission to become an officer, complete basic officer leadership course
What’s next? Big girl job. Interview is on Tuesday. This girl doesn’t waste any time.
Thinking: “You must make your choices one at a time, since each is contingent upon the decision that precedes it. Instead of trying to create a mental map of your path through this day, focus on My loving presence with you. I will equip you as you go, so that you can handle whatever comes your way. Trust Me to supply what you need when you need it.”
“My word is a lamp to your feet and a light for your path.”
