You spend the first part of your life working towards the necessities; you strive to graduate high school, then college, then to get a job, a house, maybe a family. But what happens when you meet prerequisites of life and find that you have time to spare? What do you do? Where do you go?

Some people get caught up and find themselves in a “midlife crisis.” Some people feel that college, family, and the norm is not for them and find themselves doing a whole lot of nothing. So how do you choose your next accomplishment?

Use some forward thinking and picture yourself much later in life. It’s a bit morbid but we soon realize that as we get older our knees hurt more, it takes longer to recover, and that beach body gets harder to obtain.

Will you look back with your aches and wish you would have run more? Will you look back and wish you would have tried sky diving? How long will you say “I always wanted to….”

You have one life to fill with as much awesome-ness as you can. If you want it there’s a way. Don’t be your own obstacle. Make it happen.
