“A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action becomes reality.”
Trying to live life in the best shoes possible is actually a little bit harder than it sounds. As I sit here, feeling inspired for everything that is to come, for the hard work I am excited to put in I can not help but to look back at the past month and reflect on what went wrong, and right.
Recently I have been lacking great content as I have been feeling completely uninspired and unmotivated. Many will tell you that if you really love what you do then you can never be uninspired but I disagree. Inspiration can come from many places but the “that sounds stupid” and “no one will read this” and “you are unsuccessful” thoughts can also creep in way too easily.
By 24 years old I expected to live in New York City, this has been my dream for as long as I can remember and I really believed it would happen. But life has a way of not working out exactly how you wanted, but better. While I plan to live in New York City one day I realize that I need to work hard and learn more before I get there.
Over the past year and a half I have been learning so many amazing and inspiring things and I realized this is where I am supposed to be. I am supposed to be 24, working, learning, and growing in Huntsville. I love New York with all my heart, it is my passion, but now is not the right time. It may have taken a trip to New York, where I had to hold back tears as we were taking off to leave to realize this but as much as I would love to move tomorrow, I know it is not time quite yet.
But that is the dream, goal, plan, action, and will be the reality one day after I work hard and enjoy my time in Huntsville.
So here is to being inspired and motivated and ready to live life in the best shoes possible.
