Don't Say, Just Do!

I think a lot of the time, we get so wrapped up in our dreams and our goals and talking about them, that we simply forget to actually chase after them. I know that for me, I am 100% guilty of that.

I have told my parents many times that if I were to have my dream life, after college I would pursue YouTube & blogging full time and I would pick a city that seemed fun to explore to live in. Yet here I am writing on a blog that hasn't been posted on in weeks.

My mom always tells my sister and I and other people for that matter that when it comes to raising children "the days are long but the years are short", but I think that that pertains to life in general. I feel like just yesterday I started high school and yet I have just completed my freshman year of college. So yes, the days in between all of the years were at times, very very long, but the years were very very short.

In college, as I mentioned in my "Freshman Year Reflection" video, I have grown so much in the last 9 months than I think I did all of high school. When you go to college, especially to a school that has so many people like I do, you realize that the world isn't so black and white. You also realize what type of people you want to surround yourself with and who you really think you should stay in touch with from home. You also start to realize what kind of life you want for yourself after the four years end.

I am making this pact to stop saying and just doing. It is so simple, yet can be so hard to actually complete. I hope that you guys do this with me! Lets finish the last 6 months of 2016 with just doing.
