As a little girl I had a lot of BIG dreams.
I was going to become the “next Mia Hamm” or “Avril Lavigne” or a top secret agent like the Spy Kids. I was also gonna travel to the moon & invent something really EPIC that no one had thought of before. 😆
Until one day....I started doing what most kids do as they grow into young adults. I quit dreaming as big so I could be more “REALISTIC”.
I went to college & got the degree. Then I got a job in that field because I was told I “should” & it “made the most sense”.
Fast forward a couple years & I was the unhealthiest I’d ever been.
I was unfulfilled in my career & was constantly stressed about my work, my finances and my future.
I kept thinking “is this really IT? Is this really going to be what it’s like the rest of my life?”
Then I started feeling like something was WRONG with me.
Why couldn’t I just be grateful?
Why wasn’t I fulfilled doing what I went to school to do?
For the longest time I convinced myself that it was selfish to want more for myself & my life.
But I’m here to speak to all the other Kinslee’s of the world who feel like I did 2 years ago, to let you know that I’ve been where you’re at & it’s OKAY to want more for yourself.
It’s okay to dream BIG, just like when you were a little girl.
Nothing is WRONG with you.
You’re just ready to make some moves.
That dream you keep thinking about wasn’t placed in your HEART on ACCIDENT.
That feeling you have in your gut is THERE for a REASON.
Don’t ignore it, girl. 💛
