As a typical 23 year old, there are many things I have achieved. I graduated highschool AND college... I know its weird. I know how to both read a book and convince you I know everything in a book I didn’t read. I can play useless instruments. I can drive a car and change a flat. I can cook but choose to eat candy. Yes, I am a typical 23 year old girl. I have met a couple of my idols and given advice I do not follow. To me, truly being successful means never being satisfied. If I was satisfied with a high school diploma, I’d probably be knocked up with child number 5 all because my husband never learned how to pull out. If I was satisfied with my college diploma, I’d be working a desk job or worst sales and hating myself more than I do when I say a shitty pun. If I was satisfied with just driving a car, I’d be the hottest taxi cabby in the city. I’m not saying I’m super attractive, I’m just saying I can give most of the ethnic cabbies a run for their money. Yes, I have had ugly cabbies - that is the Chicago norm. If I was satisfied with my cooking I would probably save a lot of money... maybe that is less of a satisfaction and more of an inspiration to stop being lazy. I hope that one day I am successful but I know I will never be satisfied. I will constantly be reaching for the next great thing whether it is creating art I believe in or inspiring positive change.
I know I’m standing pretty tall on my soap box today but the most important person your words can inspire is you.
Believe in you and we will too.
