Post graduate life can be summed up in one word: WEIRD.
I’m no longer a student–someone who can blame my menial transgressions on my millennial attitude–but I don’t consider myself a full fledge adult either–because I still enjoy the benefits of living at home…
My life is a giant question mark and for someone who loves to have a plan for everything, you can only imagine the unnecessary amounts of stress and anxiety and pressure that I put upon myself.
When I think about the future, I feel like I’m being pulled in 20 different directions and yet I’m still stuck in the same spot–suspended in time, making no decisions towards the goals I have set for myself or towards the dreams that keep me up at night.
About a year ago, I saw a quote by William Wordsworth that made me want to change how I was living my life:
“To begin, begin.”
Why was I wasting all of this time contemplating and dreaming and wishing about what could be, instead of going out and making my dreams become my reality?
I might get a bit lost along the way, but I’ve been told that is just a part of the growth process–and that’s okay. But I’ve made a promise to myself to not become an individual who only talks about what they wish for out of their life, instead of putting it into action
To begin, begin.
Until Next Time,
