So as winter comes to a close and spring weather is starting to make an appearance. I am beginning to venture out more in Washington DC. After my classes at HU I took time to do some exploring around the city and in my neighborhood. While walking I started thinking about my future plans after graduation, and past goals I made for my self, basically life in general and how I still haven’t figured it out yet?! As a twenty-four year old young woman there are a lot of options available to me. Everyone dreams of having the perfect career doing something they love and making a good living. But there is definitely more to life then making a good living financially. So my thoughts were what is it that I want out of life, really?
Many women my age are focused on their careers and being determined businesswomen. Some have chosen to go another route married with children, or just having children. And when I say they have kids I mean two and three! As my mother and other family and friends promote just getting a regular 9-5 job and to start settling down and having babies, others maintain live your dreams wait to settle and start a family. Which path to take the comfortable, easy, recognizable path or the one less traveled, with bumps, and obstacles, and uncertainty?
Well for me I think I’m going live like a rebel! “I’m shooting for the moon because even if I do not reach my goals at least I will land amongst the stars.” I say that to give hope to all those that want to have it all, have their cake and eat it too, and not be denied any of life’s true joy’s. Travel the world, embark on a new adventure daily, laugh often, love hard, marry the man of your dreams, have beautiful babies that can carry on your legacy, become a CEO, you can choose all of the above or just one anything is possible! And while you’re at it remember listen to some good music, eat some great food, and look damn good while doing it.
