Natalie Alcala joins us today to reflect on her experience as a college senior in 2020. We talk about grieving the “lasts” and how this crazy year impacted her faith, her friendships, and her thoughts on a future career. She chats with us about her summer internship through ServeHere at The Archibald Project and how much that experience shaped her. This is our first of many conversations with a college student! Our goal for these episodes is to give you familiar voices with familiar questions, and hopefully help you feel less alone in your thoughts about your future.
When you think of the word waiting, do you think of a doctor’s office waiting room? Perhaps a long line at the grocery store? What if you saw waiting as those few seconds before a race? A runner is focused, in an active position, ready… waiting for the signal to GO.
We're going to talk about that today. Whether it’s a day or a season, often times the last few semesters of college feel like you’re waiting for your future to start. If that’s the case, you might be missing out on something really important. The good news is a simple shift in perspective can bring hope into any "in-between" season.
You are not alone in your questions about your future. You have a superpower. You’re YOU. Uniquely gifted, purposefully placed, deeply loved. Stepping into the holy work ahead of you ironically starts with letting it go. We’re starting with a chat about surrendering your future in faith. Instead of making decisions out of fear, we’re training ourselves to get excited about the unknown ahead. This is going to be fun!
