Thoughts on Leaving North Carolina...

Today is my last day in the NC, people. My last day... 


I have to say, it's bittersweet. It takes me about a month to get used to being somewhere because the first two weeks always feel like being at summer camp. I've only been here 6 weeks, so just when I was starting to get used to everything, I'm leaving. 

I must say, though, I'm proud of the work that I've done here. I think that I made a great choice for an internship. I think that God put me right where he wanted me to be. 

In addition to my work, I think I also had a lot of personal growth over these last 6 weeks. You see, I believe that any time you are out of your comfort zone or in a completely new environment, you are forced to grow. You have to adapt, you have to change. You come into contact with many people that are different than you. They think differently, act differently, respond to things differently. You have to learn all of that and learn how to balance other people's "different-ness" with your own.  

To me, it's a wonderful learning and growing experience to go somewhere new, somewhere you haven't been before. I'm not exaggerating when I say that it can change your life. 

My life has been changed a bit these last few weeks. I see things a little bit differently. I'm sure my reactions to different people, things, and ideas will be a little different as well. I'm glad to be going home, but I'm also glad and thankful for the time I've spent here in North Carolina... 


And now a word from our sponsors:

Meet Samantha (NOT Sam) from It's All In The Details! 


When I asked Samantha what she was most looking forward to this summer, this is what she had to say: 

 "What I'm most looking forward to this summer is a lot of things - trip to Boston in July, some country concerts and a couple Bachelorette parties in August. However, what I'm REALLY looking forward to is Summer to be over. Why? Because there will likely be a shiny new piece of hardware on my left hand sometime in the Fall, if you catch my drift ;)"

We hear you, Samantha, we hear you! Get that ring, girl! 

I love Samantha's style of writing, her wit, and her sense of humor. Not to mention, she let me guest post for her while she was maxin' and relaxin' on the beach a couple of weeks ago. If you're interested (which you should be) you can check her out at her blog. If you like what you read/see and you feel an addiction coming on, you can go ahead and feed your habit by following her on Bloglovin'. And if you find that you think she's awesome, like I did, you can feel free to holler at her via Twittersphere

Thanks again, Samantha, for sponsoring The Wildflower Way! 

I'm heading back to Texas, so I'll catch you guys on Monday. 

Have a fun (and safe) weekend!
