I've always had an impulsive nature and will often do exactly what I want, even if it takes me a long time to actually achieve said goal. We often struggle with doing what we want and become burdened or bogged down. We stay in unhappy relationships, miserable jobs, places they aren't thriving, and even tolerating toxic friendships. It hurts when I see people making excuses for wanting to do something that could potentially make them so incredibly happy. They are just scared to take the chance and face that fear of "what if".
I dated those guys, got those plane tickets, took those jobs, and went on all the adventures. I learned, laughed, cried and moved forward. I've been terrified and brave at the same time. I've helped, hurt, been hurt, forgave and let go. The things we do in life are the pieces that make up who we become. If I look back ten years ago I would have never believed my decisions would have brought me to another state halfway across the country. But here I am and I couldn't be more excited to see where all my next decisions and desires lead me.
So take those chances, let your heart start leading you, follow your curiosities and try new experiences. Things take time but don't ever let that stop you from going and getting what you desire. If you're scared it's okay, we all are.
