Making Decisions & Doing What You Love

Today's post is pretty much going to be a little rant about what is on my mind. Yes this is a bit different from my usual posts but I wanted to be real and honest with you as a follow up to my sophomore year goals post. I decided to write this post today because I really have not talked too much about my internship experience this summer.

I guess I will start by saying that this summer I learned a lot about myself and what I am truly interested in. I learned country clubs and the food and beverage industry are not for me. I also learned what it's like working in a job you are not 100% happy with. Though I also learned that no experience is a waste. By NO means do I regret my internship because that's what an internship is all about. I used this summer to grow as a person. I realized where my true passions lie. I want to do something related to business and events. I learned I can't give up on my dreams to maybe even one day start my own business. I now know what it's like not being 100% happy with your career and I don't want that to settle for something I don't absolutely love. I guess what I want to tell you guys is it's never to late to start over and pursue your dreams! My dreams this year are completely different then last year and that's ok. This quote above is one of my favorite quotes "It's never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you are proud of, and if you find that you are not, I hope you have the strength to start over". Like the quote says if you are not happy with something all you have to do is start over don't just settle because you are afraid. I am proud of what I accomplished this summer but it was not who I am so I am starting over!

This second part of this rant I am going to talk about decisions. I recently made a big decision to quit the academic organization I was involved in last year after my experiences this summer. This was something I thought about forever but I evenly decided that I just wasn't interested enough to do it again this year. I was so scared and worried. What if I am making the wrong decision? What if I regret my decision? What am I going to do next summer? The truth is my gut was telling me not to do it but it still was scary. I think this quote is so true. Just because something seems scary doesn't mean you shouldn't do it or it's the wrong decision. I took a risk and for now I am so happy with my decision! Trust your gut and don't be afraid to jump ;) 

I hope that post wasn't to boring but if it was I will be back to my regular posts tomorrow I just want to share some inspiration with you today!
