It is that time of the year, where everyone starts to head home from the holidays. We are all finishing up our last week of Fall Semester, here at LCC with final exams and so very sad goodbyes. As a study abroad student these goodbyes are a little bit harder. It is like saying goodbye to a family that you have come so comfortable with within your four month stay. The study abroad students are all preparing for reentry into their home countries and their lives back at home. It is a time that is filled with many emiotons from all sides. We continue to will you all luck in your future endevors and we wish those that are remaining at LCC International University the same. As This is my last post with you I want to send you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years. Remember that the world is so big, yet so so small. It takes you stepping out of your comfort zone once and trying something new that makes you see the world in a new light. Continue to grow and change. Make a difference and remember to love the little things.
To leave you I wish to provide you with a poem that I have grown to love:
Reason, Season, or Lifetime
“People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you figure out which one it is,
you will know what to do for each person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON,
it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty;
to provide you with guidance and support;
to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend, and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON,
because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it. It is real. But only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons;
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person,
and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.”
