jkpotluck9My teachers today are 
my coworkers. In the Advertising department, we are comprised of many different occupations. We range from designers to motion graphics to social media to mail to digital media. We can learn everything from each other. Whether it’s our experience or mastery that guides us, we all have a skill to offer each other.

I am taking in all of this good with an open heart and mind. Although many things may not present themselves in helpful manner, there is always a lesson to be learned about the situation.

The truth that is right in front of me is even though school is over, learning never ends. You go through college hoping to find a “trade” for yourself. But in reality, you’ll want to try everything. I for example have explored many areas of media from the front line to behind the scenes and still have many more areas to experience.

my family. My family is not limited to blood relation. In the Kingdom of God, the number of brothers and sisters you inherit is endless. But, that’s the best part. You never know who can teach you a thing or two about your own life.

I am taking in all of this good with a determination to never let it fade. Striving to live differently means living for good. And good is a plural term. It’s not limited to personal gain or pleasure but instead calls you to do good for everyone around you; especially those that can’t do good for themselves.

The truth that is right in front of me is the world is a lot larger than I ever predicted. Every corner I turn I’m exposed more and more of life.

I am taking in all of this good and hoping I can make such an impression on others like they have on me. If I can inspire some to love as much as they do just by loving life, I’ve accomplished something amazing.

The truth that is right in front of me is in the middle of the storm, there is beauty all around. As a baby, many things in life seem like a crisis, but as soon someones there to hug you and tell you it’s okay, life is perfect. As a baby, every emotion is fleeting. There’s too many things to miss out on by dwelling on one bad situation.

my closest friends. They love me enough to share their mistakes and help lead me on a better path.

I am taking in all of this good from the hearts of my friends and cherishing it. It takes a lot of courage to expose the darkest areas of your life in hopes of helping another person. It takes even more courage to do this without any expectations.

The truth that is right in front of me is selflessness is the most beautiful thing you can be. To cherish another about your own prosperity is breathtaking.

I am taking in all of this good and praying I can be a light to someone else. Even in the darkest of areas, I want God’s light to shine.

The truth that is right in front of me is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me,” – John 14:6
