Within a world with opposing views and beliefs, I think we can all agree that 2016 was one heck of a year. From Brexit to “Making America Great Again,” no one could have predicted what was going to happen next.
In my own life – I graduated from college, moved back into my parents’ house, and started my first job out of college working at a digital marketing agency. With each passing month, it felt as if the world around me was changing at a frantic pace. Meanwhile, my life was at a halt while I figured out what I wanted to do. This question was a constant in my life,
“What do I want?”
What do I want to do for the rest of my life? What do I want out my relationships? What do I wear to a non frat party? From trivial questions to life altering ones, I always came back to the same answer,
“I don’t know.”
While getting ready this New Years Eve, I once again found myself at the same place – staring into the abyss of my closet with no clue what to wear to the night’s festivity. Fed up and frustrated, I finally made a decision. I decided this year I will know. I will know what I want. I won’t let another minute of my life pass me by in a world full of opportunities and resources that can give me the answers I seek. This is the year I decide what I want out of my twenty something life.
This first to step to change is just to move. You can’t change your life by thinking the same thoughts and doing the same motions – you have to take action. It’s with this thought that I go into 2017 with an open heart and an open mind to the possibilities of what this world has to offer and what I can give it in return. So cheers to 2017, and may it be a great one.
