"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."—Harriet Tubman
We’re all human, right? I’d like to think so, anyway. It would be a lot more comforting to know that the great minds of yesterday once felt like much of the rest of us do today: confused, scared, and hoping for a happy ending.
"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."—Harriet TubmanI’m so inspired by those who were unafraid to do what they thought was right. Sometimes I wonder if I really have the character and strength to do anything they have done… And then I think, or rather, I wonder if they ever felt as uncertain as I did.
Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.
— Oprah Winfrey
It’s spring break. And what does that mean? Well, it mainly means I have more time on my hands than normal - which is both a good and bad thing.
It’s a funny thing, time. I literally have days where I have absolutely none to spare and then there are days that go by too slowly.
Sometimes I think it takes something life-changing for us to realize that time is one of the most important thing in our lives. And, when it comes down to it, I think it’s the greatest gift you can give anyone.
When I actually have time to think, and I’m not rushing to this audition or to that meeting, I realize that most our lives are spent doing things that we don’t want to do.
And then when we finally realize that we don’t have much time left, we freak out. (Can you say mid-life crisis?)
And so, I just wanted to sort of jot this down as a little reminder to myself never to forget what really is important in my life.
I need to remember WHAT I want to spend my time doing and WHO I want to spend my time with, because let’s face it … we never know when we may not have any time left.
Can we just promise to remind each other? K Thanks :)
I cannot believe I’m a senior.
Let’s make some mistakes while we still can, shall we? :)
lately i’ve been excessively worried about my future.
it’s to the point where i’ve been so stressed that my body shuts down around 10:30pm.
i’m officially old.
i remember my senior year of high school like it was yesterday. one day, a day just like any other, i was sitting in bob’s (yep we called him my his first name - he was THAT cool) ap english class playing apples to apples. the adjective was ‘scary’ and, as usual, the other cards to choose from had a range of random answers. now, i’m not going to sit here and pretend i remember all of them because i don’t. however, i do know what i didn’t choose.
that card read: my future.
three years ago, high school was ending and college was just beginning. we were all so excited to tread new waters, make new friends, and learn everything we could.
and now, coming into my senior year of college, i feel like i’m about to pee in my pants. i have absolutely no clue how i’m going to fend for myself in the ‘real world’. and what freaks me out more than anything is not figuring out what is right for me.
god knows i change my mind every five seconds.
i feel like i’m driving in the dark and some dbag broke my headlights.
the only lights that are working are my taillights and now all i can remember is what i am leaving behind.
i think one of the scariest things in the world is leaving behind all you know to discover what you don’t.
i’m usually excited to try new things and create my own paths.
lately, i’ve been scared out of my mind.
and i’m hoping some of you have felt the same at some point.
i mean, i’d like to think i’m not alone in this. hopefully.
