Maybe I should start by saying that I’m a 23-year-old girl trying to give something to think about to all you women out there.
I was on Tumblr the other day and I saw a post about traveling and just enjoying life, and now, I’m about to move to another city, and that’s the most exciting thing that’s been happening in my life lately. But then, I think about the women out there, the ones that have children, the ones that are married, or the ones that have important and well paid jobs. What would they do?
Would they move?
Would they ever consider it?
We all have excuses, my biggest excuse for the longest time was: I have a job, and I have patients, and I cannot just leave them.
But then, I started to think about the future, and I didn’t feel happy, what was I doing? And when did my dream become just a shadow?
So I took little steps, first of all: I went to therapy, because I wanted to talk about all the negativity that I was feeling about myself.
Then I told my parents about me wanting to move, and my dad wasn’t so happy, but eventually he understood. Then I quit my job. Yes, I did it! And I almost feel like a lot of weight was lifted off my shoulders.
And now, I’m just 5 days away from moving, my life is about to change, and I couldn’t be more terrified and more happy.
So, what does this have to do with you?
Maybe you have a dream, and you, like me, are too afraid. Maybe you just want to go and see the ocean, maybe you want to learn how to sing, and maybe you want to write a novel. Look around you and think about those things that make you feel passion. What is stopping you from getting them?
We often forget how short life is. And like I said, we all have excuses.
But, did you now? You can do anything you want, little steps will take you a long way.
