Question: What am I doing with my life?
Answer: Everything and nothing all at the same time.
I am a complete master of “thinking” and “dreaming”,
But “doing” is not my strong suit.
One of the biggest things I don’t like about myself?
The fact that I am more bark than bite.
The fact that I have a myriad of ideas and dreams that I would love to make happen, but absolutely no idea how to accomplish them.
My biggest caveat, I’ve realized, is that I think too much.
“Is that even possible?”
Yes, love. It is. It has the power to turn a carefree person into an emotional, anxious wreck. It’s actually pretty messed up.
My problem was that I was stuck between what makes me happy and what makes me comfortable because, like many others, what makes me happy isn’t necessarily the most financially stable career, but then I came across a quote that said, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”- Neale Donald Walsch.
I believed I needed a plan for everything, every possible route in my journey, before I could even make my very first move.
It was only a few days ago when I arrived at the intersection of Dreams vs Goals Street and Reality Avenue.
If I wait until I have a solid plan for every possible route in my life and I waited until I knew which route would be best for me, I would never accomplish anything I want to accomplish!
Moral of this story? “What do you want to do right now, in this very moment? ” “Does it hurt anyone else?” “No?” “Then do it!” In the words of Nike, “Just do it.” Life is too short for second guessing and thinking of every possible irrational consequence because at the end of the day, when I hopefully have grandchildren, I want to be able to tell them tales of my crazy, once in a lifetime adventures and mistakes, not of the many times I sat alone in my room dreaming about adventures that I would “one day” take.
I am 18 years old, so I suppose, better late than later (or never).
Have a lovely day everyone!
Until next time,
