Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Today is the last day that I will be speaking with you all for a little while. I am studying for the LSAT and therefore, I decided to shut my life down and focus all of my energy into prepping for the LSAT. Sounds extreme, right? If you want extreme results, you got to do extreme things. I think that God is giving me a second chance and that means I need to do everything in my power to make sure that I don’t waste this chance being given to me. You know gang, I didn’t get into the law schools I wanted to go to- and the rejection letters, caused me to wake up! To wake up to what was around me. Pain has this amazing quality to make us more aware of what we are missing, what we want and what we are willing to do to go after it. I thought about giving up on my dream, trust me I did- but if I give up before I even walk in my divine destiny, I wasn’t worthy of having it in the first place. So now I’m back at square one….aiming to change my life through the help of God and His grace.
When you are given a lot of “no”s,you make it your objective to work for your “yes”. I am working for my “yes” and if that means I swap out my social media time (which is a lot) for study time and going the extra mile in preparation- at the end of the day, it’s all going to be worth it! When I’m in law school, prepping for the bar exam; I’m going to look back on these days of hardships and say that every “no” was worth it, because it taught me discipline, ambition and drive. These past few hard months matured me and it taught me that if I am not passionate about my dream, no one is going to be passionate about it.
Keep me in your prayers, October 3rd is the test date. In fact, mark that day on ya’lls calendars and pray with me on that day, that I would be confident and collected. Pray that God will bring back to my remembrance all that I studied and learned. Pray that God will be with me in that testing session, giving me peace as I prepare to take the legal world by storm. Please pray and be encouraged by my story not to give up on your dreams, but rather to work extra hard for them in the face of adversity.
Shut your life down to get what you want.
Until next time,
