Don't be afraid to live your dreams to your standards. Take control of your life today.

Within the last year I went from having a job, to unemployment, to traveling the United States on a cruise ship. In one word the experience was unexpected. At this time in my life, I always thought that I would have everything figured out. Man, was I wrong. I'm still trying to figure out my next career move and I'm still on the journey to figuring out who I am. I've learned that no one has it figured out. We are all learning as we go. That's the scary part. The unknown. However, at the same time the unknown is also a wonderful thing. We have the ability to shape our own futures. 

Instead of sitting around and wondering "what if", we need to go out and make our dreams a reality. I'm doing just that. I'm learning to grow outside of my comfort zone. I want to evolve as a person. My journey is my own and no one else's. In a few days I will be moving to another state. It's exciting, scary and nerve-wracking all at the same time.

Some people don't agree with my decision and that's okay. I can't please everyone and honestly I'm not trying to. I'm trying to find myself. I'm doing this for me, and me alone.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that you have to do what's best for yourself, regardless of how other people feel. It's your life and you shouldn't let anyone dictate it. So go on adventures, live your dreams, fall in love with life. Most importantly, find you. Find who you are and where you're going in life. Don't hold yourself back because you'll only be hurting yourself. We weren't put on this earth to live in a box or to fear the unknown. Take a leap of faith and just jump. You'll be happy with the outcome. 

Cheers to 2019 and living our best lives!
