Traveling, everyone loves to travel, well almost everyone. In their country, out of the country, just to go somewhere. Well I have gone out of the country a couple times, but only to my parent’s home country, Guatemala.
Let's be honest, waiting for marriage in today's day and age is almost unheard of. Because let’s be honest, we have all been teenagers, or we have all had that weak moment. And the fear of being vulnerable with the wrong person can terrify people. I know it terrified me. Unlike most people I had made the decision at fifteen years old to wait until marriage. And I had done a pretty good job up until 21. It was not until I met my current boyfriend that I broke that promise. I had held out with him of course, because I had never really had any sort of intimate interactions with other men, other than a make out session. So, when he decided to make moves, I was terrified, not of him but of me, my body. I am sure we have all been there with our body, we are not the most confident we think we are not good enough, etc. I was no different. But of course, things progressed, I almost felt scared to say stop or not to keep going, but of course I feared rejection, I feared of what he would think if I said no. But I did it, when we were about to, you know, I said no that I was not ready, and of course I was terrified of his response. But he surprised me, he was kind and asked what was wrong, and I told him of course that I had made a vow with God to wait until marriage. He told me that he thought it was nice that I wanted to do that, and I could set the pace. And we could do whatever I felt comfortable with.
Wouldn’t it be great to do everything as you planned, as you imagined it, thinking that you were prepared for it all? That you could conquer the world, and no one would dare challenge you, because you were so ready, so determined to accomplish your dreams. That what we thought when we got to high school. Wendy and I had been friends for a long as we could remember, when we entered school we thought we’d go to college together, we even looked the universities together and looked to see what program we could enroll to go together, that did happen I moved to different city, did something completely different, graduated with my associates and came home to finish school with her. One year in and it is not going as planned, I am failing, falling behind, I do not have enough to graduate on time.
