Staying in Control

Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome.


Wow, it’s been a while. I mean a really long time. I know this blog doesn’t have a large following, except for my parents, but it was something I was really excited for and was ready to see where it would go. 

However, I haven’t logged into this account in months. Junior year of college (my about me page says I’m still 19-oops) has been insane. This year, my time has been filled with studying or doing something for my sorority or applying for internships or the school newspaper or work. By the time I finished everything, writing a blog post was the last thing I wanted to do. So, I stopped posting.

But now, here I am on Thanksgiving break with (hope I don’t jinx it) lot’s of free time. So, I’m spending it doing one of my favorite things that I have missed extremely – writing about whatever I want to.

Life can get overwhelming, especially in college, and sometimes things spiral out of control and you want to give up. I have a problem with taking on more than I can handle, but never admitting it, until I literally cannot fit another thing into my life.

So, I am here to tell you that it does not last forever. College, although stressful and filled with too many breakdowns, is something that only lasts a limited number of years and you have to enjoy it. Thanks to my time at college, I’ve met so many people and done so many things that have changed my life for the better. 

I only have a few weeks left of this semester, and after reflecting back on  the many late nights I stayed up reading scholarly articles and times I had to say no to my friends because I had too much homework and the (more than I’d like to admit) times I felt defeated and like I couldn’t endure anymore, I realize that it was only temporary. And I think that’s the most important thing that we can remember to stay in control when our life starts to spiral out of our hands. 

…and that’s what’s going on in Lindley’s Life. 

She remembered who she was and the game changed.
