I am exactly 1 month & 3 days into the 26th year of my life on this planet. I’m low key freaking out bc I have so much I want to accomplish & there’s so much of the world I want to see & as another year goes by, I always have a sense that I’m running out of time. I have dreams & goals I’ve been putting off for years bc I often worry I won’t succeed or I just need to gain more experience first bc I’m not ready yet; but things get pushed to the side & weeks & months & even years go by & then you’re left wondering where would I be now if I had the courage then? So instead of waiting until Monday or waiting until the new year, I’m going to start now! I want to challenge myself & I encourage others who are interested to join me on this quest of self discovery. We should begin living our lives to the fullest by being our most authentic selves. I want to be honest & vulnerable, I think everyone on Instagram thinks we need to always look/be cool & I’m probably guilty of that too. Ppl might think I’m lame for doing this and being so open but I’m 26 now - if we live a life scared of what others will think of us, then we aren’t really living at all. We compare ourselves a lot because of social media, we wonder where we should be in our careers and personal life based on what our peers are doing. We have to remember each of us are on our own path & there’s no shame in taking detours or trying something new. So let’s try to be more real & vulnerable with each other & embrace all of life’s ups & downs & make the most out of them by what we have learned. Let’s challenge ourselves to accomplish as much as we can, to make goals & steps to achieve them, to travel to countries we’ve had on our bucket list, to wear that silly outfit we love but think ppl will judge us. I want to share a photo each day now as a diary of my year long journey to accomplish my goals, keep myself motivated & accountable. This is my day #1 starting on September 20, 2019. I can’t wait to see who I am & what I’m up to in one year’s time!
