peace

I was 22
just graduated from college with no clue what to do next
I remember racking my brain for options
what am I good at?
what can i do with this degree?
what did college even teach me?

one of the most transitional points of my life
I spent all my time job hunting, cover letter writing, and resume tailoring
and through the fears of uncertainty
there was a certain peace in my heart
a certain joy

and at that point I realized:
its been 22 years and I've always tended to stray on the side of joy
I then decided to do all it takes to hold on to it
through every challenge
never let anything dim my light

I have highs
I have lows
I embrace them both
and somehow
my glass always remains half full
I call it
the peace of God that surpasses all human understanding
