When I was younger, I used to love going to the beach. Living in South Florida, there’s an abundance of different beaches to explore. One of my favorite pastimes was seeing how far I could go into the water before it got too deep for me to go any further out.
Earlier this week I visited my old Broadcast Journalism professor to mentor his class. While I was helping one of his students with recording a story, they asked me:
“So what’s your dream?”
My response? I don’t have dreams. I have goals that I spend every day working hard to achieve.
It wouldn’t surprise me if someone were to conduct a study on the most frequently asked questions of future college graduates and found that these two responses came up as the most popular:
What are you doing after you graduate?
Are you ready?
I celebrate the me to come.
I toast to my own reunion, when I become one with the sun.
Self-care is a journey.
It’s not the kind of straightaway expedition where point A and point B are right next to each other. It’s a topsy turvy venture that will have you going around in circles trying to figure out what the end even looks like.
