I MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE GONE LOOKING THROUGH MY GRADUATION POSTS AND STARTED GETTING ALL NOSTALGIC

I'm sorry... I couldn't help it... it's been a year.

HOW HAS IT BEEN A FULL YEAR?


My life has changed quite a lot since I graduated this time last year. So much so that I'm almost certain if I looked at myself and where I am now compared to then I almost wouldn't recognise myself. God has opened so many doors for me in the past year; blessed me with incredible people I get to call my best friends, taught me so much about myself and what I'm capable of, given me opportunities I never would have dreamed of being offered in my life time let alone my first year out of high school and my relationship with God has reached an all time high. I'm still the same old me just with a little more experience to have some more confidence in myself.

Looking back the one thing that I remember is the anxious feeling that sat in the pit of my stomach everyday during my final week of high school. I REALLY did not want to leave. I was scared. The future held so much unknown that whenever I thought about it, all I wanted to do was crawl into a corner. Looking at it with a bit of perspective, I wish I had known that it was all going to be okay - fantastic in fact.

God had it all under control the whole time. I never would have guessed that I would be where I am today. I never would have guessed that leaving high school without a solid group of close friends would leave me with the opportunity to step into the one that I have now. I never would have guessed that I would have had the opportunity to step into my dream job at the age of 18. I never would have guessed that I would have learnt the things that I have. I never would have guessed that my relationship with God would have become this strong. None of that would have happened if I hadn't been out of high school.

Graduating was the end of one HUGE chapter but it was also just the start of an even bigger one. I'm really glad I walked into that next chapter and I'm SO excited for the years to come. If the years ahead are anything like this past one, I can not wait for what God has in store.


XO, Danielle
