When I graduated high school my very cool Aunt Heather gave me a Carpe Diem journal. In that journal I wrote down little goals and big ones alike. Six years later, I have reached some of those goals, but I still have a long way to go and more goals to add.
Unfortunately over the years I have realized that I have let my fears, anxiety, and depression prevent me from reaching a lot of my goals. This year I decided that I’m done with that! If I want to have an overall happy life and be pleased with the progress that I have made I can do it– but I have to fight for it!
While this blog may seem silly to some, it has provided me with a way to keep track of my progress, share the talents I am developing, and keep myself accountable. Below are a few lists of things that I have always wanted to do. Some of them have been done and others are on the way! HERE’S TO SEIZING THE DAY!
