I used to think that I should only do exactly things that I’m called to. No settling over here, no distractions from anything else.
And then I graduated and realized that I haven’t found my true calling yet. I have passions and hopes and dreams, but a solid straight-up calling isn’t in my cards at the moment. And that’s when I stumbled upon seasons. Life is composed of seasons, infinitely many if that’s how you like it, and this is just one of them. I am a professor at a community college in Baltimore, Maryland right now, in this season. And that’s not a forever thing, and it’s perfectly acceptable. This whole notion of seasons means that I will have time to play and time to be serious, time to buckle down in a set career and time to meander through other opportunities. It sort of means hakuna matata, or take it all in stride, or one step at a time and other cliches. So all you new grads and/or old grads who still don’t feel so settled – take this season and run with it. Go out into the world and do well, but more importantly, go out into the world and do good.
