"You know what's weird? Day by day, nothing seems to change, but pretty soon everything's different."
When I’ve made a big decision sometimes, before I go to bed that night, I ask myself: “Who am I going to be when I wake up?”
Those are the big changes in life. They’re the ones where you take a chance on something that could end up going horribly wrong, but you take that chance anyway.
For me, those are the ones where I’ve woken up and found myself doing my undergraduate work in North Carolina or my master’s degree in Budapest.
They’re the decisions that, when you look back you wonder what you were thinking but at the same time can’t imaging your life having played out any other way.
It is those moments, those decisions that define you. They punctuate your life, marking the points where you cast aside reason and decided to just live. It is within those moments that we catch a glimpse of who we truly are, and who we could become.
This is why we shouldn’t be afraid of change. It may seem scary, and every decision you make will not always turn out the way you had hoped, but change is what makes life worth living. We should embrace it with every ounce of our beings.
So, who will you be when you wake up in the morning?
Enjoy The Ride!
