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.
