Turbulence: unrest, violence, disturbance. I feel that there is a great deal of turbulence in our everyday lives, and for me especially now. I feel like I\’m constantly in in a state of transition and that causes great turbulence to me. Here I am, newly graduated from my undergraduate education and embarking on the future of my life. Lately, I\’ve felt discouraged, to be completely honest. The turbulence has gotten the better of me. There is so much unrest, so much disturbance. I can\’t always see my way out of the whirlwind of my life situation. It\’s as if I\’m stumbling around in the darkness, with the noise, trying to figure out a course of direction and action to take. The pressure is immense, and I feel like I\’m cracking under it. The worst part is though, is that I simply cannot crack. There is no room for failing. This is my life. I can\’t just drop out of my life like I can drop out of school. I know that this turbulence will cease at some point, but the reality of the need to make decisions and sink or swim is consistently on my mind.
“Let nothing disturb thee; Let nothing dismay thee; All thing pass; God never changes. Patience attains All that it strives for. He who has God Finds he lacks nothing: God alone suffices.” – St. Teresa of Avila
