The Time is Now

February 2, 2016


Life is constantly changing. And no matter what you do in your life, time will always go on. The last year or so has felt like time just passed. I felt like nothing moved forward, or really backward for that matter. Life just kept on moving on. I read this quote recently and it couldn’t be any more true…

“Never allow waiting to become a habit. Live your dreams and take risks. Life is happening now.”

Risks are risks for a reason. They’re scary. And if you’re anything like me, life changes always feel scary. But I realized I’ve spent most of my young adult life doing what I needed to do and not what I wanted to do. I never followed my passion or my dreams. I went to college with the hopes of doing so, and then lost that dream when the harsh reality of student loan repayment kicked in. At that point, I did what I needed to do. I never took a risk.

Up until recently (we’re talking almost 8 years after college), I went through each being unhappy with my choices in life – professionally, I mean. But I’m here to tell you dreams do come true. And if you work hard enough, and maybe take a risk or two, you just may find yourself fulfilling your dreams. I was recently given an amazing opportunity to join the rewardStyle team in Dallas and it feels surreal. But none the less, I made a promise to myself to take more risks because the time is now.
