When I first came into college a year and a half ago, I had my mind made up what I wanted to do as soon as I graduated. I wanted a certain job, with a certain company, in a certain city, and I would have a certain kind of life. But life never goes as planned and isn't as simple as the plans we have for ourselves.
Sure it's good to have dreams and goals that we want to accomplish, but I don't want to put myself into this box of where my life needs to be after I graduate. I realize that no matter what kind of job (fashion wise) I get after I graduate, I will be happy. Whether it's starting off just retail, higher up in management, or behind the scenes work that goes into the industry. Since becoming a Christian I realize it's God's plan--not mine. And I will be content with wherever He places me in life because I know it's where I am meant to be. To those of you thinking about studying fashion--there are so many options. Coming in I thought there were only a few routes I could take, but after taking courses and learning more about the industry I realize I can take my life anywhere, in any direction. Which is awesome, of course, but quite scary as well.
For now, I'm not going to worry about it. I trust my future is in good hands.
With much love, Lauren.
