Goals, Dreams & Taking A Chance

So, last week when I was flying back home to Orlando, I got quite bored on my flight. I finished the book that I was reading with about an hour left into my flight, so I started to make a list.

Well, first I thought for a while, and then I made a list.

A list of goals. Which I guess is also a list of dreams. Some were personal, some professional, some fitness-related and some random ones (like learn how to curl my hair-seriously).

Obviously, we all know my biggest fitness goal right now is to run my half-marathon in just two short weeks. That’s been a goal of mine for quite some time now and I’m more than ready to cross that off my list. However, there are a few others that are quite a stretch for me. In fact, they’re a little scary.


Basically, they are going to require stepping out of my comfort zone and taking chances.

You see, the one thing I’ve realized is that it’s not just my fitness goals that will push me out of my comfortable little life. There are much, much bigger goals that I have set for myself that have nothing to do with fitness that have the possibility to turn my entire world as I know it upside down. I guess that’s all part of the risk-taking, huh?

I know this post is pretty vague but I’m not quite ready to share my goal yet, although if you are close to me or follow me on Twitter you may have a good idea as to what goal I am chasing after right now. I think one of the best parts of having a blog is using it as an outlet for your thoughts, and I’ve been consumed by thoughts like this for the past few days. It’s actually nice to sit and write these thoughts out, even though I have been using run time to get lost in them.

So sorry if you don’t see my latest workout or a nice big picture of some froyo today, but I really just wanted to write about this. I’ve always said that part of leading a healthy life is staying happy and keeping yourself mentally healthy as well. Well, I’ve spent the past week reflecting on my life and trying to figure out what exactly I want to accomplish in order to do just that. It’s refreshing to see how far I’ve grown in the past few years, but I know that I want to continue to grow within the next couple.



Now that I’ve poured my little heart out here, I’m off to go catch up on some of my shows and get to sleep EARLY. I am exhausted today! Thank God tomorrow is Friday!

What is one goal that you are currently working towards?

    I’m kind of in a similar spot right now. One of my current “goals” is to just try and picture myself in 6 months, 1 year from now and figure out what I’d be happy doing, you know.. just… focusing on that? My internship is coming to a close in July, and from then on it’s the real world! I have to start deciding about jobs. Woooooooooooof!

    It’s like you snuck inside my brain and wrote about everything I’ve been thinking about these days! I feel like I need to take the time to think about what I want and write out a list. Making lists always help me organize my thoughts and make a plan for where I want to go with my life.

    Can’t wait to hear all about your goal :)
