A Letter To Those Looking For Direction

If you're going where you want to go, you're doing it right.

A Letter To Those Looking For Direction

To the person looking for direction,

Everything is going to work out at the end of the day. It may not be ideal or the way you want it to be, but as long as you remain determined and strong, you will be successful.

There are going to be obstacles along the way; I am not going to lie. There will be people who don't want it to work out for you and there will be times you want to give up. Nothing is ever perfect and the situation you are going through is most likely not an exception to that concept.

You're probably wondering what you can do to find the path you want to take or may be curious about the answer to why you're feeling as though you don't know where you are going. It will take time. You'll have to find people to inspire you and an outlet for what you truly want to do. If it's becoming an athlete, you'll have to work at the gym and practice the sport you're interested in. If it's being a better person, you'll have to remind yourself to stay positive and handle things to the best of your ability. There are steps for everything and it's up to you to determine them.

Once you realize what you want to do and how you're going to make it happen, things get a bit easier. You'll have to brace yourself for the criticism and the "haters," but you will make it work if you are genuinely adamant about this. Stay positive and work through what's thrown your way! It's just the world testing you.

If you still aren't sure what you want to do or what your place is, don't worry. You always have time to reevaluate and figure out what is meant for you. If you're a believer in "everything happens for a reason," go with the flow and you'll find yourself figuring out that plan in no time. It's important to remember that you will find direction and your true path regardless of what is happening right now.

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.
