- Starting high school and then Junior year (when one begins to seriously consider college and look to the future).
- College - Freshman year and Senior year
- 6 months out of college (either that's after a bachelor degree or master's degree) and learning how to be an adult (and paying student loans...)
- Engagement and Marriage - making that leap into a commitment you'll have for the rest of your life
I know there can be a lot more and it depends on how people approach life and the events they go through, but those are my top 5. I've only gone through the first three and I know there was a lot of growth and development of my personhood in those years. I also believe that the most difficult transition comes from school (college) to adulthood. Sometimes I think back on my college experience and remember how great my prayer life was and I wish it could be like that now, but I also have to remember that I'm at a different place in my life and it can't be the same! So now I have to figure all that out and what does work best for me?
Ok, ramble time is up... back to work! Hopefully the mice won't come out to play until after I'm gone...
