Sitting in the Drivers Seat

IMG_2142Someone once told me that you choose your own career and you choose your path in life. At the end of the day it is 100% your responsibility to work towards becoming the person you want to be, both in your professional life and your personal life. Things may not always work out the way you envisioned them, but they work out the way they should. At the end of the day you get out of life what you put into it.

It should be common knowledge that life isn’t easy. If it was, you would never have to work for anything, you would never know the feeling of success or the feeling of failure. Anxiety, pain, struggle and despair would be emotions that can’t be explained, understood or quantified. Life isn’t easy: make the most of what you have.

Looking back on the past year, I’m very pleased with what I’ve accomplished. Although it felt like things really weren’t going my way after graduation (post-graduation depression) I am really happy where I am at.

I fell into an excellent job which has been a wonderful learning experience. I was lucky enough to spend a little over two weeks in Israel and I can’t wait to go back.

I discovered macaroons and have been taste testing them everywhere. I finally had my wisdom teeth pulled, and I made it to 21. My closet now contains business appropriate dresses and there is a slight possibility that I am be addicted to manicures. I think this is part of growing up.

I still can’t believe its been over a year since I graduated from college. So much has changed, but so many things are still the same. Thankfully, I haven’t over-stayed my welcome at my parents house – they really are the best “roommates” since they keep the fridge and pantry stocked and I usually come home to a fresh cooked meal. Does it get better than this? Here’s to this year being bigger and better than the last.
