As I sit here and type this, all I can think about is how far I've come in the last year. Between taking some time off from school, and spending the better part of my time working, I've had more than enough time to contemplate my future. While I may not like where I've found myself at certain points in the past, I definitely know where I want to be in the future... The only thing keeping me from getting to that point is my self-doubt.
My race doesn't represent me as a person, especially a young person in America; only my work ethic and what I'm willing (and able) to apply it to. And it's crazy when I think about it, because it's tough for people of all ages to get jobs, and perhaps more importantly, find great opportunities. With that being said, I'm just counting my blessings and thanking God for what he's given me.
He's put all the people in my life that I could ever learn from, and then some! Imagine that. At 22, I'm finally starting to learn that my parents and my elders were right about many things. No matter what, making the best of school and your education is usually the best option in pursuing your future career. And regardless of what people say, you should never believe your own hype. After all, we all have room for improvement, and I'm not talking about that one Drake mixtape.
So as I reflect, I'm going to enjoy this summer evening. After all, right behind Christmas, it's probably my favorite time of the year.
