Me: “Although I plan every single moment of every day I should probably just sit back and laugh at myself because no plan I’ve made has come into fruition (or not in the way I thought it would). So no, I’m not exactly where I thought I would be at twenty-three but I try not to focus on that. I have a goal, I have a few dreams, and I’m just trying to take the right steps to get there (small as they may be). I’m trying to learn to walk instead of run, to slow down and not rush. I’m trying to not worry about everything. It’s difficult – how do you change the person you’ve always been? Little by little. Step by step.
I didn’t realize how prone I am to rushing and worrying until my trip to Chicago. The people I went with are all laid back and just go with the flow, no rushing. At first it made me antsy! I was scared that if we didn’t hurry up, we were going to miss out on things. Funny thing is that we saw everything we wanted to see. We had time to relax, to sleep, to get coffee, to shop, to hit up tourist attractions, and we didn’t rush. You can see everything you want, you can do everything you want, and there’s no need to rush! Who knew?
Little by little, step by step, you can do it all.
Thanks for teaching me that, friends <3
