What Walter Mitty Taught Me About College

Walter MittyTo see the world,
things dangerous to come to,
to see behind walls,
draw closer,
to find each other, and to feel.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty


To see the world …to see behind walls. To pull back the curtain. To discover. These words, with their simple message, have caused me to ponder what it means to take part in ‘seeing behind walls.’ It challenges its listeners to lean in and peel back the layers of life – discover the deeper parts of existence.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is, for all intents and purposes, my favorite movie. It challenges its viewers to dive into a more purposeful reality. To shed to monotony and embrace life’s hills and valleys.

College will be an exciting, challenging and growing time of your life. You’ll have beautiful moments of joy and, at times, days of unfortunate struggle. For some, they’ll thrive during the bumps and curves, but others will succumb to simply holding on. I want to challenge you to embrace the mistakes, learn from them and continue to give it your all. Pay attention, be curious and trust that the Lord goes before you. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.

So be encouraged to see this world, things dangerous to come to …and to feel.

All the best!
