30 Day Challenge – Day 2

Day 2: How have you changed in the past 2 years?

I would like to think that I have changed a lot in 2 years. Just 2 years ago from today I was 25 about to be 26. I had just started to sort of figure out what I wanted to do with my life after making a big career change. I was about to go to law school but after doing an internship at an Autism clinic for children I completely switched courses. I was also single and not really looking to be in a relationship. I was more focused on my life goals and my family than anything. After losing my father 2 years ago it shifted the way that I looked at life. I stopped partying so much and started to really grow up. I realized that there is so much more to life than partying on a daily basis. I am more open to love and making sure the important people in my life, family and friends, know how much I love them and care about them. Right now I am fully focused on my career and getting ready to graduate with my Masters in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) with a focus in Autism. I am loving being in a relationship and although it is new I am giving him everything and making sure that he knows how special he is to me. Another thing that I have noticed has changed about me is my firecracker attitude. I was the type of person who was fun and enjoyed life, very spontaneous, but when you made me mad I went from 0 to 100 extra quick. I am a little more calmer now and it takes a lot for me to reach that point. I am very proud of myself for fixing that because that was not something that was good about me. I am growing everyday and I am excited to see the changes that I make 2 years from now.

Being a Better You

Most of us are guilty of trying to be better than the next person all the time. Especially when you are in a competitive job environment but instead try being a better you! When you wake up in the morning each day you should strive to be a better person than you were the day before. This practice will allow you to become your true self every moment of everyday.

Just a thought that I had !

Just Live

I know that most of us are guilty of constantly analyzing the past and planning the future. I know that I am guilty of this. I was so sure of how my life would end up. I literally had a 10 year plan coming out of high school. It was not until I was 2 years out of high school that I realized life just does not work like that and it crushed me. Still, til this day I constantly think about my past and how I could have done things differently to put me in a different but better place in my life. Although, I know that it will not change the course of events that have happened nor can I go back in time and do it all over. I am also guilty, as I know most of us are, of running away from what I truly feel in my heart out of fear of getting hurt. Yet, I know it is inevitable despite how much I try to convince myself otherwise. One of my many character flaws is that I tend to overthink some things instead of just opening myself up to the many possibilities of love. I tend to withdraw from people when I feel that they are getting to close to me and I realize that if I continue to do this love will definitely pass me by. I have always wanted to find true love and if Im not susceptible to it, it will never find me. So I have took a vow to just live life and let whatever happens, happens.

Just my thoughts right now!
