I’m sure I can speak for almost all of us when I say that it’s incredibly difficult to wake up in the darkness of the morning and get yourself all the way to work. With these cold temperatures on the east coast right now it’s even more unpleasant.
While I was refusing to get out of my bed this morning I was thinking about timelines. Everyone has their own path and goals and aspirations. I see a lot of this as I have graduated recently, and have friend’s leaving college in the next few years. I see them making plans to live together, plans to move far away and start a new life, or all work for the same company. I used to be right there with them, until I realized that life doesn’t work that way.
I had a whole plan to be in an entirely different situation than I am right now. Living in LA with four people having a grand time. And here I am, 3 months past the time I promised myself I’d be in California, working in a job I never thought I’d do.
Life is funny. The plans you make to get to your goal will almost never happen exactly as you’d imagine. If you hustle hard enough, and believe big enough, you’ll reach your goal. Somehow, someway, but definitely not how you would think.
I’ve decided to detach myself from everyone who’s making promises to one another and not fully doing what they want because they’re following the pack. Following the pack will get you zero satisfaction and you’ll most likely end up living someone else’s dream.
If you separate yourself and create your own destiny, odd’s are your journey will be a heck of a lot more special.
Remember this, and always keep moving!
