Leading up to summer, everyone makes all of these big plans. We talk about how much money we're going to make, how fit we're going to get and how many amazing memories we're going to experience.

But when it actually comes down to it, it is too easy to have the "there's always tomorrow" mentality. Netflix shows become more addictive and everyone's beds seem to get more comfortable.

It is time to wake up, people. Summer has an expiration date!

Remember that friend you swore you would make dinner plans with but you just haven't gotten around to it? Call them.

Remember that gym membership you bought to help get your "summer body?" Use it.

Remember that weekend beach trip you've been meaning to take? Book it!

For the remainder of summer, I want to make sure I'm living my life to the fullest and achieving all of my goals. For me, July is a month full of travel. I'll be spending some time at Anna Maria Island, in London, Paris, and the Bahamas. I plan on making the most of each day and being present in each moment. Memories will be made, pictures will be taken and special little moments will be remembered.

Summer doesn't last forever so don't take it for granted! Days turn into weeks and weeks turn into months passing by. Before you know it, September is here and school, college football, and cooler weather start to consume everyone's lives. I challenge you, and myself, to not have another "should've, could've, would've" kind of summer. Here is your wake up call!

How do you plan on spending your second half of summer?
