I'm not really sure how this whole blogging thing works...but I'm pretty sure I just jot down whatever I am thinking and it will qualify as a blog, right? I'm not so sure about that though. I'm not sure if anyone will ever read this, but if they do, I want it to be something they can enjoy and be inspired by. So, with that said, here is my first blog!...(I apologize in advance for any incorrect grammar).
I've only lived a few short 24 years of life, but I must say I have learned a lot in those years. It's funny, life is like a catch-22...when we're young we want to be older, and when we're older we want to be young. Why is that? Life is so easy as a child, yet we always long to be older and be able to "make our own decisions" and "create our own destiny." I often think of how lucky I am to live a privileged life, but then I immediately think of all those who don't have the luxuries that I have. I've learned life isn't about how much money you have, what kind of car you drive, the house you live in or the schools you go to. Life is about having compassion and empathy for others around you! Life is about appreciating everything you have that money can't buy - Friends and family.
Most of all, life is about selflessness and humility. If we were all a little more selfless and a little more humble, this world might be a better place!
