You Can't Be Peter Pan Forever You Know...

"If growing up means it would be beneath my dignity to climb a tree, I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up! Not me!"
— J.M. Barrie (Peter Pan)

Ever have those moments/days in life where there seems to be a theme of what you're learning?
I have.
I'm going through it right now.
I am 21, going into my third year at the University of Toronto, needing to make some really big decisions and career choices and I don't even know where to start.
You see, I am the QUEEN of the Land of Procrastination.
I tend to put things off to the side and just avoid thinking about them... avoiding thinking about them equals avoided stress, no?
I have always done school that way... wait till the last minute, do my work under that pressure because it's the only way I will get it done.
But I've begun to wonder lately, how long can that last? How long can one put important tasks and decisions off leaving you to cram till 4 am for that test?
I think I've always thought that one day I would just wake up and have good work habits... silly, silly, Morgan.
It's interesting how God has a funny timing of putting these themes in to your life though.
Such as, in the last two days alone, I have heard THREE sermons (all by different pastors) on "Growing Up" and spiritual maturity and what that looks like in your life. I have been bombarded with school and course selections that will lead to graduation, which will lead to a career (or further education) which will lead to... what?!
Je ne sais pas!

So it's time to step up. Raise the bar. Grow up. Etc.
This is the year.
This is the year that I give it my best, regardless of whether or not I get the outcome that I want, I know that God will be glorified and it is what He expects and desires of me.

"Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men." - Colossians 3:23 ESV

So this, by God's grace is what I will strive to do.
