Over the past couple of weeks, I have been blogging about my journey to find balance. Since I started college 3 years ago, I have been working hard to find my balance with school, work, extracurricular actives, seeing family and friends, going on those much needed vacations, taking my “me” days, and even managing my stress. And for the most part, I have it down. I know that after a weekend that was full of many sorority events, that I need to go home for a little while and visit my family since my balance was off due to only having a weekend full of sorority events. And I know that after midterm or finals week which is consumed with school everything, that I need a “me” day, or I need to spend some time with my friends.
For the most part, I have found balance in being the president of my sorority. Some weeks are harder than others and sometimes shocking events happen that need to get handled quickly. But I have enjoyed being president of my sorority for the past 8 months and I can’t believe that I only have 4 months left. I feel like being president has changed my life and has changed who I am as a person. I feel that I have more respect for leaders and what they have to deal with. I have learned to delegate tasks better, because I couldn’t do this without the rest of my executive council or the rest of my chapter. I have also met people and have become close to people that I never thought I needed in my life.
But what am I going to do when I am not president anymore?
I think that it will be a relief and it will feel good to pass the position on to someone once that next person is elected. But it will definitely feel weird to not be a leader in my chapter anymore. During that last semester that I am in my sorority before I graduate college, I will have to find a way to become involved in a different way. This could be through an internship or maybe even another job.
So what am I going to do when I graduate college?
To be honest, thinking about graduating college sounds pretty scary. I feel that I have made the most out of my college experience. And most importantly, I have found my balance in this stage of my life. But I know that graduating college will lead to bigger and better things and I think it will be exciting to see where life takes me.
I think that it is important to find balance. But I think it is more important to adjust your balance and find it at different stages of your life. When I was in high school, my balance included volleyball, softball, school, student government, friends in family. In college my balance changed, but included school, friends, and family. It adjusted to add in my sorority, college life, and other clubs that I am involved in.
So what does my future have in store? I guess I’ll figure that out soon enough.
