Hello guys, hope you are having a great week. I am very grateful to everyone that supported the guest blogger Fola last week by visiting her blog and leaving a comment, we found the entire process fun and sucessful.
Today's post is a bit different from the usual articles, I have been trying to be as real and honest as possible so instead of pulling a topic from the sky and writing on it, I will be sharing what has been on my heart lately.
10 years ago I made a tiny decision that changed the course of my life. I was living in Leicester doing a university foundation in Mechanical Engineering( random) and had just been accepted to study in University in London. About 3 weeks before the start of term I felt uneasy about everything, nothing felt right and I felt like I was losing my mind. I chatted with a friend and realised I did not want to be an engineer and that realisation scared me as I did not know what the replacement would be; My physics tutor advised me to consider a field in computing or IT based on my A levels, it sounded cool but did not feel completely right.
I did some research and found 2 universities Nottingham Trent and Oxford Brookes that had a course I was interested in. I wrote to the 2 universities telling them that I had just changed my course and was looking to apply directly to them and they were interested. Now my best friend had been accepted and was moving to Nottingham trent so I assumed that was the logical decision(we were gonna be together forever and ever) but when the time came to make the decision I chose Brookes. I had no logical reason for that choice, I had never been to Oxford neither did I know anyone there but my gut said Oxford and I went with it.
When I arrived something felt right and it felt like home, during fresher's week some ignorant drunk student made a racist comment about my hair but for some reason that didn't phase me, I was home.
Looking back I always think... what if I went with the logical decision, what will my life look like? Will I be married to Matt, living the most beautiful city and blessed with a loving church family and friends? I listened to a teaching about Graces and Places (highly recommend this) and how your success in life is determined by your Grace(natural ability), Location and Associations.
I guess the point of this post is to encourage you to trust your instincts or gut feeling and do not be afraid to step out into the unknown. It is not always an easy decision to make and quite scary most times but if it is the right decision, in the midst of all the fear, anxiety and worry there will be a sense of peace.
Anyways guys that is all from me for now and I will love to hear from you. Did you make small decision years ago that has had a huge impact on your life now? Please share I love reading your comments and they could help someone.
Hope you have a great week
