I was sitting at my desk, procrastinating, and scrolling through my phone looking at the hundreds of photos all of my friends have been posting on Instagram. Nearly every single one of my friends or acquaintances are currently travelling or studying abroad. As much as I’d love to currently be in Russia, or Paris, or Amsterdam right now, it occurred to me that I really shouldn’t be feeling sorry for myself. I’m working hard in Gainesville studying and hopefully I will be able to graduate a semester early because of it.
You may also be feeling un-content (is that a word?) with where you are in your life right now. Days could seem monotonous or boring, but if you work hard now your work will pay off.
Sure I’m stuck in hot, swampy, Gainesville taking math, public speaking, and economics currently. But there will be plenty of time for me to travel and see the world. And I know my time to experience all the world has to offer will come. But for now I should count my blessings, be happy for my friends who are travelling, and work hard where I am, because I am infinitely blessed to be where I am and to have the opportunities that I do.
