Ready, set…Go.

This morning started out with a nice run through my local park right next to my old high school. It’s crazy how things or places that have not changed one bit, can seem so new and beautiful, when seen years later.

It reminds me of a quote I once read (I can’t seem to find it), that goes something like,

“Maybe the places you have returned to haven’t really changed. Maybe it’s just the fact that you aren’t the same person as you were when you left.”




This morning run was a nice chance to clear my head. I have missed running so much. After injuring my knee in a soccer game over a year ago, I finally finished physical therapy and was given the go-ahead to start running again. LOVE IT. I was in the middle of training for a half marathon at the time and literally had to just STOP. Hardest thing ever. Running is like my drug, it gives me a high that is unlike any other. With that being said… 

You guys, I’m struggling. 

I am in the process of applying to grad schools and frankly, it’s SO overwhelming. I guess if it were easy, then everyone would be going to grad school… right? I feel like I’m being pulled in multiple directions between multiple dreams and goals.

Who knew turning 25 (on Monday!) would face me with so many huge life changes. Actually, I vaguely remember thinking that around this time, every year of my twenties thus far.

Anyone else get that same feeling?


“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours. It is an amazing journey, and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.”

Have you ever felt like you’ve been pulled in multiple life changing directions? What did you do to calm yourself down!? haha
