I've been doing a lot of thinking recently. That's my thinking face (above). And when I have tons of thoughts racing through my head, I have to get them out or I will go crazy. I typically write them down in a secret place, but I'm sharing some today.
Some of my recent thoughts and lessons learned
A lot of people my age and older don't know what they want to do with their lives…but I think that's OK. It's nice to know we're all on this crazy journey together.
Every opportunity, regardless of how it seems at the time, is a blessing and chance to learn more about yourself.
The older you get, the more difficult it gets to meet new people and have meaningful interactions.
One-sided relationships do not work and aren't fair to the person putting forth the effort.
Family is one of the greatest aspects of life. "Family" does not always mean blood relatives, but the people who have been there for you and will always be there for you.
The people who cheat and cut corners to get ahead will regret it in the long run.
Grad school is actually very similar to undergrad.
Atlanta weather is really bizarre.
People make time for what and who they choose to make time for.
I love public policy and politics.
Getting through a challenging/busy week is more rewarding than getting through an average week.
We all need a support system.
Life is short and we should appreciate the ones we love every single day.
Everyone has insecurities and weaknesses.
Staying in on Friday nights feels good.
Saving time in my schedule for (me) to do nothing is important.
Our words can really affect people just like our actions can really affect people.
My life has changed so much in a year, and I'm thankful for that.
Lastly, venting is sometimes necessary and therapeutic.
