Since my last post in January, quite a few things have happened. So far, I have:
- Started my first job out of college
- Quit said job (it was a career move, not because I didn't like my job. However, I was becoming complacent in my job, so that made my decision easier)
- Went to my first USMNT game
- Went to my first wedding
- Saw the Backstreet Boys (I've been wanting to see them since I was 8!)
Yet, I feel like I haven't done much. Often times, I am guilty of comparing myself to my peers-those who are traveling, those who have fallen madly in love with someone else, those who have packed their bags and move to a new city...you get the idea.
Well, enough of that! Take some advice from Ferris Bueller-Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
Just stop and take a look around at where you are and where you're going. Personally, I don't stop and take a look at what it took for me to get to where I am today. I don't give myself props that I have graduated from college, or that I secured a job out of college, or that despite the fact that I'm not great in a school setting that I got pretty good grades. Celebrate the victories in your life! Where you are right now may not be your end game, but appreciate the journey, no matter where you go.
That's one of my many lessons learned for August 2013.
