Let's Do Something Fabulous

I wrote this post a month or so back, but I think it's very fitting for this time of year. The photos I chose to go along with this post are some that I've taken in the past few years. To me, they represent different times of adventure in my life and here's hoping there'll be many more to come.
So here's some New Years inspiration:

Do you ever read an article on someone that you find absolutely spectacular? Someone that's so inspiring and makes you go "Wow, I would love to do that" or "I would love to make that kind of impact." I go to school with some incredibly talented people -- people whose writing flows like no other, artists that make jaw-dropping work seem effortless, unreal athletes, etc (the list goes on forever). There are legitimately people who have gone to the Olympics (casual, right?).

I recently read an article about a girl from my school who wrote her own book and is in the process of getting it published. Like what? That's insane and wonderful (insanely wonderful?). A professional speaker also visited one of my classes and was talking about accomplishing your dreams. She asked us to picture our ideal future, even one that you think is unachievable. She then emphasized that you can achieve those exact futures if that's what you desire.

She said, "HOW, not if."

Why should any of us settle for anything less than our dreams? I may be young, but I know I want to do something incredible, I want to do something fabulous. It's just a matter of being confident in yourself, your abilities, and knowing that if you spend your time figuring out HOW instead of always relying on "if this" and "if that", you can do anything.

What impact are you going to leave on the world?

Wishing you the best

A Year In Review

At 2am a year ago today, I decided to start a blog.

You guys, that is so unreal to me. One sleepless night turned into my little blog that I love so much. I guess what seems the craziest to me is that I stuck to it. Not that I'm a quitter, but it's so easy to make a delirious spur of the moment decision at 2am. Sometimes those decisions don't seem as great in the morning when you wake up, but luckily that wasn't the case. I am so passionate about my blog and I can't even tell you how great it feels when my pen just keeps going and all the ideas and creativity in me comes to life (I say pen because I usually write my posts out on paper before I type them up).

I've been told that I smile when I write. Today my best friend asked me, "How are you feeling?" My response: "I'm feeling really good! I've studied a bit and written two new blog posts. You know I'm doing well if I can blog." Word for word, people.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to those of you who read and/or leave sweet comments. It means the world to me.

So as another reflection on my year of blogging, here are a few things that have happened to me and/or changed in the past 12 months:
  • I've made friends in college that I can't imagine my life without
  • I am a sister of Kappa Delta sorority
  • I successfully completed my freshman year and started my sophomore year
  • My little brother graduated middle school and started high school (CRAZY)
  • I had my first internship
  • I am Sunshine Chair of my sorority
  • I am an ambassador for the College of Communication at my school
THANK YOU again everyone! Let's have another awesome year together.

Wishing you the best
