This is an older picture of me when I first started blogging. I was figuring out who I was and what I wanted to be and do with my life.
It was hard.
And it still is! It's so easy to feel like one is not on the right track. That one is just sitting by, waiting for their life to start.
But the reality is that life has already started. Yes, we all have dreams and aspirations that we are striving for. And that's a good thing! But we can't disregard where are we are right in this moment either.
We are all given a finite amount of time on this Earth and it's up to us to decide what we do with this time that is given to us. While filling our various responsibilities, we can work toward those goals and dreams step by baby step.
And over time, dreams change, along with the person, and that's okay!!! We must be flexible with the direction life goes and keep an open hand to the opportunities provided to us.
Think about it. What are you doing to propel yourself forward as a person today? This week? Make a list of things you'd like to do and then make a list of how you are going to achieve those things.
It'll take time. Be patient with yourself. And be patient in general. Rome wasn't built in a day. Neither will your dreams happen overnight.
