Falling Together

On Friday afternoon, I met with my college advisor to put my schedule of classes together for next semester.  For the past few years, I had planned on becoming a dental hygienist.  I love interacting with people, and (I’m not going to lie) I always found excitement in the idea of monogramming my scrubs.  
After several happenings, the tables had completely turned, and I had no desire to become a dental hygienist.  I was hating my classes, the thought of working in people’s mouths, and the idea of not being able to wear what I wanted to wear each day really had me thinking “Is this really what I want to do”.  
After speaking with several reliable sources and much prayer, I finally decided to change my major.  I went through a period where I felt utter confusion and had absolutely no idea what I wanted to receive a degree in.  I kept trying to figure out what I love best.  I thought about my job, and realized how much I enjoy managing payroll and such.  I also thought about my love and passion for fashion and design.  After much decision making, I am officially a business major.  I am still deciding between an accounting degree or a degree in business management.  I have big dreams, and I feel a degree in an area such as these would be most beneficial.  All I can say is that I am so excited for the semester ahead.  I am constantly reminding myself not to be afraid to let things simply fall together.  I believe it will all work out as long as I enjoy whatever I decide to do.
I just love this quote.  I think we can all relate…

  1. Thanks for sharing this. It's awesome that you changed your major based on what made you happy instead of settling. I have a tendency to get upset when plans change, but this post has helped me realize it can be for the better. Thanks, and I hope you are enjoying your new classes!


  2. Wow Rachel! That is so awesome!! 🙂 Good for you for following your heart. I think you will be an *amazing* business major and I could totally see you working for one of your favorite companies one day, or starting your own!!

    I am ending my freshman year of college and am an intended communications major since I'm interested in working in radio. But I am planning to also take on a minor so I can be exposed to other fields, and I'm keeping my options open should I change my mind.

    I am currently in the process of trying to transfer to a different college. While I want to keep the same major, it would mean all new friends and a new campus. But I feel that this is what God wants me to do, and there would be lots of perks to transferring (like getting to do Greek life!).

    Sorry for the super long comment! 🙂

  3. This post is one that so many of us can relate to! My situation was a little different because I majored in something I thought I loved, but it was too late to switch to something different when I finally realized I didn't like it. You are doing the absolute right thing by following your heart and switching to business! I love that quote too, but cause just like it says, everything will fall together…exactly when/how it's supposed to:)

  4. best of luck to you lady!!! I remember you emailing me a few months back about my major! I'm glad you chose something (and decided early enough on) that you want to do! 🙂 I look forward to hearing about how it goes!

  5. There's nothing wrong with making a change, and I'm glad you're choosing to change to something you'll enjoy!! Life is too short to do something you don't like. Best of luck, girl!!
