That Thing I Learned in College…

This fall outfit reminded me of a casual, preppy college look and that got me thinking about how different my life is today than it was when I was still in school. I miss those days. I do not miss the homework. But I miss the energy I had each fall for the opportunities in the school year ahead. I was excited about what I could learn and how I might become better than I was before.

I still get that feeling each year when fall rolls around and I like to use it as a gut check to make sure I’m still looking for the opportunities in front of me and not getting distracted by the individual tasks on my (now never-ending) to-do list. 😉

I hope you’re feeling that energy, too! There’s so much in store for you. Spend some time this week thinking about what you want for your life before 2016 comes to an end, and then use all of that energy to go after it!
