If you could do one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I never expected that question, especially not in the context where it arose. And to be honest, I’ve really never thought about it until now.
As I’ve grappled with that question over the past several days, I’ve realized I can’t truly answer it.
During my first year of college, I realized that I have passions and God-given talents that I never knew existed until they were exposed and tested. I had no idea how much I was truly capable of until I was challenged. And half the challenge was trying to go in so many directions at once. I thought I knew exactly what I wanted to do, but the past year has taught me that I can’t limit myself to whatever I feel right now or whatever might make the most logical sense.
I’m incredibly blessed to have opportunities and options, and I don’t have to choose only one at the expense of all the others. I have my whole life ahead of me, and I intend to pursue as many opportunities as I can while I have the time and the ability. I don’t think I could contain my life to chasing after only one thing when my heart contains so many dreams and so many passions.
I could give a million answers, but it ultimately comes down to this: For the rest of my life, the one thing I want to do is LIVE.
I want to use every moment to love, to sing, to write, to smile, to dance, to talk, to listen, to cry, to laugh, to celebrate, to bless the lives of others, and through it all, to glorify God.
