Hello to all! Today I’m going to talk about sororities. Yes, this is something of a controversial topic among women and men alike; it’s always interesting to explore the things can be socially divisive. They’re relevant because they teach us about ourselves, about how we seek meaning in life.

First of all, I am in a sorority. In high school, I NEVER would have foreseen myself joining one. Ever. I’ve been a tomboy for most of my life, and I always perceived it to be a waste of money, time, and effort. However, I have come to realize that I couldn’t have been more wrong. It’s relevant to note that I attend a very small private university, which completely alters the dynamics of Greek life.

Regardless, it’s come to mean so much to me. It’s on my mind because I just yesterday got officially initiated. 🙂 I have come to love almost everyone in my sorority; it’s a huge support system that let’s you be yourself while striving to be thoughtful, genuine, and responsible. The president of the sorority recently spoke to the new members about what being in a sorority means to her. She expounded upon how the respect we develop for one another must not only be based upon the fact that we are “sisters”. Collectively, I have come to realize the incredible accomplishments that my sisters have achieved. They are applying to medical schools, traveling the world, overcoming fears, winning competitive scholarships…

So you’re probably wondering why I’m feeding you all of this cheesy information about my sorority. You’re probably thinking; what is she trying to do, recruit us? But actually, what I’m getting at here is the big picture. Somehow, I ended up doing something I never thought I would do because I kept my mind open to new opportunities and experiences. Whatever you do in life, it’s important to keep in mind that one never truly knows where the road will take them, and that it’s absolutely vital to find people that truly appreciate you for who you are, flaws and everything. People like that are everywhere; people that are simply searching for more, for a real connection with life, with others. These opportunities are always available. You simply have to look in the right places. Everyone has been hurt at some point, and everyone searches for more, for that special something or someone that will suddenly make everything clearer, easier, more exciting. The trick here is not to search. Instead, do that which you love; pursue that which you care about. Everything else will follow. 🙂

Love,

Lily
