Title (And Other Things)

One man's ways may be as good as another's, but we all like our own best. --Jane Austen

I think the title of this blog is appropriate for two reasons. The first, and most obvious, is that it comes from a quote by Austen (I feel rather silly pointing this out, considering my last post). The second is that it truly seems to fit my life these days. I suppose if I really thought about it, it would fit my life at any given moment, but it especially resonates with me when I think about these past few months--and the months to come.

After graduating college, I decided to take a year off. My intent was that I would start working full time and save money for law school, but it would seem that my plans were not in sync with God's. Although I have been searching since January, I have yet to find a job, aside from temporary ones here and there. For someone who has always known what she was doing and where she was going (I've wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember--though my back-up plan has changed quite often), this uncertainty isn't easy for me. If I'm accepted into law school next fall, I don't know if I'll be able to pay for it. I'm praying for scholarships and grants, but those only go so far.

At least the one thing I do know is, if law school is what God wants for me (and all things considered--especially the fact that up until this year, my reaction to the thought of law school was "NO WAY!"--I truly believe it is what He wants), it will all work out, somehow. It's just figuring out what it is He wants from me before that point that's frustrating...and exciting!
