What would YOU tell your high school self?⁠

What would YOU tell your high school self?⁠
For me? I would tell her to stop holding onto what she wanted so tightly. ⁠

What did I want to be in High School? Something in politics for sure. I had *plans*. CONCRETE “don’t mess with me” plans. ⁠

Dream College since elementary school? Apply Early Decision no questions asked.⁠
Major? Pre-Law⁠. Lawyer? More likeiy politics. I had it all planned out.

I wasn’t going to let anything stop me...except when I didn’t get into the dream school.. Not only did I not get in...but I didn’t even get wait-listed. It was embarrassing. ⁠

God’s plans are so much greater than our own, His plans for my life led me to the school where I met my husband. His plans led me to start ellyandgrace. His plans led me out of politics and away from people who weren't good for me.

The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps. - Proverbs 16:9
