Choosing Your Major..

Hey Everyone,

So I have been so set on my major for the past year, and yes, just a week ago I started having major doubts about what I want to do with my life. I know this is a very common thing during college, but I thought I had battled with this enough already. I guess when you have a change of heart, or a reminder of what really has value to you, it can really change your perspective of the future you want to have.

I have been realizing lately that with the particular major I had, I am not going to have much time for my future family when I am in my career. This causes great distress for me because that is the most important thing to me. Being able to have a family, and be there for my family is the thing I look forward to the most. I have started realizing some serious things other than just the family thing that could be a deal breaker. When these conflicts come up, don’t just rush into something new. Take some time, pray about it, and see what you can come up with. Take the time to talk to your family and friends. They know a lot about you that you might not think about yourself. They are wiser, older, and probably have had more or different life experiences than you have. Sometimes you just need to take a leap of faith, your family and friends will be there to make the leap of faith with you.


Although this is a very stressful and scary time, just always remember that there is a light at the end of every tunnel. Everything will end up being okay. It will all turn out the way that will make you the happiest because that is what all of your family and friends want. As long as you take the time to seek out what you are made to do, everything will pan out for you.

Thanks for reading everyone!
Hope your week is going well!
