Running down a dream

So I will start of with a warning: I may not be the best writer and my punctuation is a little scatterbrained.  Hell, I mean, I go to school for engineering.  The right side of my brain is trying to suffocate the left side of my brain.  Well here is a place to exert my feelings…

With that being said…I can promise you one thing:  I have a heart exploding with emotions.  My keyboard may not be able to keep up with my exuberanct thoughts.  I’ll try to keep this short, b/c I don’t know about you but when I see a long e-mail or column…I usually get a little turned off.

Basically, I realized recently that I am not living my life to its fullest potential.  Don’t get me wrong, I have loved every minute of it and I feel like the luckiest person alive.  The only thing is, I am a dreamer and I am tired of continuing to say what I am going to do.  I am 20 years old, and it is time to be proactive and actually do it.  My whole life I have always done what is basically expected of me, it’s time to prove that I have something else to offer in this world.  Ever since I was a little girl I have always said one thing: I want to do and see everything and change lives for the better through that process.

I will leave you with a metaphorical thought:

I am writing to you while dripping the sweat off my forehead.  I always used to go for runs in a disciplined way.  “I must run 4 miles today and I can’t walk.”  Or, “Before I run I will track my path with my car to make sure I don’t cheat.”  Today I decided to throw on running clothes and my new balances without a destination in mind.  My goal was to get lost in the country side without a plan in sight.  I decided to throw away the conventional for just a little bit…

…adventures to be continued

    Kelly, I’ve never done a blog before so I’m not sure what I’m doing is right. But, I was thinking about your comments and how you wanted to people and basically make the world a better place. these come in stages you know. You learned what it is to be a loving, honest and moral person from your parents and mentors, now you learn skills to use on your journey to making the world a better place and once you have some tools you go for it. I believe you are in the collecting skills phase. what you are studying has endless possibilities to help all kinds of people. Perhaps you have the need to travel? that always brings adventure and a satisfaction that you are engaged with the world, which is something Americans have a hard time doing. You are so lucky to be 20 and have so much available to you, don’t be afraid to step outside the box, but don’t forget the collecting the skills part. You can actually so both at the same time. I’ll stop now b/c it might be too long winded.
