Good Afternoon:) My writer’s block has gotten serious so I have been looking for inspiration in various places. I was on Instagram looking at my friends’ “Throwback Thursday” posts and wanted to do one of my own but I wanted to elaborate a bit more about the pics and what they meant to me. I started thinking about the last time I felt fulfilled and accomplished and I realized that I haven’t had those feelings since I graduated from college in 2013. This was my second time trying the college thing (when I went to college in Atlanta straight out of high school, things didn’t work out the way I expected) and I set 2 specific goals for myself. The first goal was to graduate in 3 years because it was possible as long as I didn’t take any breaks and the second was to graduate with a 4.0 GPA because I wanted to push myself mentally in a way that I never had before. I was beyond ecstatic when I accomplished both of those goals and it made me realize that I could do anything if I put my mind to it and REALLY wanted it bad enough. On top of that, I was inducted into 3 honor societies and won a special award from the Honors Program I was in. These achievements made me feel like I was finally able to get something right and looking back on it, I am so proud I made it to that point and my father was able to see his little girl achieve these goals before he passed away the following year.
As I was reflecting on that time in my life, i wondered where my passion and dedication has gone since then. There are so many things that I want to achieve and I know what they are but I’m not sure on where to start. Going back to school was scary for me in the beginning but my willpower and determination outweighed my fear of failure. As I stated earlier in this post, if I really want something bad enough, I can make it happen but before I get to that point, I need to start doing the things that I am passionate about to give me that push I need to lead a life of greatness. I know that everything happens for a reason and I am here for a greater purpose and not confined to my current circumstances. Instead of overwhelming myself with trying to do multiple things at once, I’m going to focus on one or two goals at a time like I did in college and give my all to making them happen. Patience is a virtue and I thank you all for being patient with me as I figure out the next steps to take in my journey. Talk to you soon!
Always remember to love and live luxuriously!
