With New York down in the books, and it was an epic adventure, I am shocked at my bravery to which I just pulled the trigger to do. I always pushed myself to be academically successful, as well as professionally. I have done very well in those areas, but haven’t given myself the needed time, until the past few years to learn who I really am and what I truly want in life. Now, I barely recognize the person I am becoming & I love her, I think I look up to her, and it’s the best feeling and I do not want to let her down. Atlanta has really been so good to me. It has really pressured me into shining brighter and making some major choices that would have otherwise scared me. I would always find (il)logical excuses as to why I can’t do something for myself because of any other obligation. I refuse to do that to myself anymore. I will choose happiness- always. Just like Wicked, I will defy gravity, because even if I am flying solo, at least I am flying free! I know I will be happy in the end, and that is what truly matters!
I encourage you to do the same and choose you every day. You are your guarantee in life, so don’t let yourself down! What is it that you are passionate about? What have you been putting off until later because you don’t have the time, money, or whatever? Don’t hold off! Because once you go, you will be so high on life, you will not ever want to let go of that feeling. You will fight to keep your happiness, and you should. You absolutely should fight to live your best life possible!
