Sunday scares are a real thing, no doubt about it. I can tell you that for a fact because I’ve experienced them before, and I’m experiencing them today. For those of you who don’t know what the Sunday scaries are, they’re basically a feeling of nervousness that sets in before you start the week ahead.
This week, I start my last semester of graduate school. Although I’ve been excited about this up until this point, the reality of it is really setting in (particularly today). This is my last semester as a student – no more breaks, varied schedules, homework, grades and so on. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very excited to enter the work force and find a career I love, but that doesn’t mean I’m not nervous. I’ve had summer jobs before, but I have been a student for almost as long as I can remember. The fact that it is all going to change in a few months is scary. Change isn’t easy for everyone. I certainly don’t like change. Yes, change is good, but it’s also hard. However, I think it’s more important to look at the positive side of things in all situations to the best of our abilities.
At breakfast this morning, I was telling Nic all about my Sunday scaries. When we were talking about it, he told me how I was ready for this next step in life and that this is a good change. Although I knew both of these things deep inside my mind, hearing it just solidified it. I am ready for this next step in life and this IS a good change. I’m really excited to find a job when I graduate and start a new adventure in my life. I’m ready. I’m excited. But, until then, I will enjoy my last few months as a graduate student. Life is all about living in the moment, I truly believe that.
So, if you’re experiencing the Sunday scaries for whatever reason, I’m here to tell you that you can handle the week or whatever obstacle you’re facing and that change IS a good thing. Try to embrace it, not fear it.
I hope you all have a great week. Scratch that, you will have a great week.
