When I was around 7 years old, I wanted to be an interior designer or an architect. I remember designing rooms and houses. I loved looking at house designs and architectural structures. I read countless design magazines featuring luminaire lighting and other designs. But eventually, when I was in high school, I was too afraid to try this course since I wasn’t good in drawing.
When I was in high school, I wanted to be a writer. I loved writing poems and short stories. I also wrote lyrics to songs. I submitted my works to the school annual journal and I joined essay writing contests.
Eventually, when it was time to decide which college course to take, I ended up taking a course not related to what I loved doing. I was unsure so I took a “safe” course, business administration.
Now, as I look back, if I weren’t so afraid to take chances then, I would probably have taken a course in literature.
But I know that the Lord has plans for me, and whatever happened was the best for me.
How about you? If you were given the chance to go back, would you change the college course that you took?
