Celebrate Your Accomplishments, No Matter The Size

When people ask you, "What is your dream?" or "What do you dream of?" many respond with a career choice, being rich, having a family, or even falling in love.

All of these are honestly wonderful dreams; however, they're all big dreams. Dreams that take time and dedication.

A lot of people don't really focus on the little dreams; the simple ones that are kind of important in order for us to get to these big dreams. Although small and simple, these dreams can really affect you for the better; often times they can lead to even bigger dreams or kind of put things into perspective for you.

Granted, big dreams are what take up most of your priority, but the small ones are always overlooked, even when they shouldn't be.

After all, you have to learn how to walk before you can run, right?

Small dreams can be as simple as "I'm going to pass this exam with an A," or "This week, I'm getting up early so I can go walk around campus," or whatever the case may be. Try to think of it as a stepping stone in order to reach your big dream.

Do you want to be more confident in yourself? Stop comparing yourself to those Instagram models that love to flood our feed and try to learn that you're wonderful in your own way! Self-care and love are ideal!

Is Grad School something you want to achieve in the future? Start making those A's in class, buddy! Study, Study, Study!

Are a happy marriage and a family something you've always wanted to have? Don't forget to also try being a bit more social, and make a lot more friendships wherever you go! You never know what might happen!

Who said that big dreams are all that matters?

Small dreams are accomplishments in itself. They're ridiculously important and should be celebrated no matter what!

These small accomplishments can ground you in a way and remind you of what you're working towards as well as keeping you from overworking yourself (Which can be detrimental!).

If a small accomplishment feels big to you now, accomplishing your big dream is going to feel unimaginable!

Moral of the story: Celebrate your accomplishments!

Whether you graduated college or woke up early enough to go for a run, it's something that was done in order to improve yourself for the better, and while it might be small, it's certainly something to be proud of!

Go You!

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
