I am excited to do these posts for the next 31 days. At the end of the 31 days I will be 24 years old and hopefully at a better peace with whom I am. 2014 is here and I have a feeling it will be a year where I will be able to find who I am. I have been thinking about the past year. 2013 was the year I started graduate school, worked full time, thought I found love, made some great friends, found that some other friends were not what they seemed to be and began to become a true grown up. I have recently noticed that I find myself looking towards the future and not living in the present. Taking a cue to that famous line out of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”. So that is my goal over the next 31 days, to begin to stop and look around and to begin to focus on myself and living in the present.
