Pt. 1/3

I take a lot of deep breaths throughout the day, and my mind wanders…constantly. But, (take a deep breath) I do my best to bring it back to the place where I am currently residing. If you can’t tell, I’m a dreamer and I have a lot of energy (currently I'm writing this at 12:35am)! Right now, though, I spend most of my days chillin’ out maxin’, relaxin’ all cool (whoops, weird my fingers just went there). But seriously, I spend more hours than I want to sitting at a desk, and it sucks. But, (take a deep breath) when life gets really tough I try and think about where I’m headed and how it is going to be so much better than I ever anticipated. Working 8 hours a day, getting my Master’s degree, and trying to balance this entrepreneurial spirit I have burning inside of me is a lot, but I know where I want to go.

Every day, and I don’t know if anyone else feels this way, it feels like I’m living two lives. The one I have and the one I so desperately want. Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love Drake (and it has nothing to do with me being light-skinned and emotional…I think). But, I was listening to a song today where he talked about feeling like the devil is working overtime on him. Clever line, but there’s truth in it because I know we’ve all felt that way before in some form or fashion. It’s hard, and I’ve talked about this before, to be truly present and enjoy what your current situation (the one you're desperately trying to get out of) has to offer. Think about this for a second, there’s a good chance that the majority of people you will come in contact with today are going through something just like you. Be mindful of their situation as well as yours and remember above all else, it’s not permanent...and you can enjoy it!

The key: When you use your razor sharp vision to think about where you’re going, make sure you return to the present stronger than you left it.
