Walk away

A lot has happened in the past two months, and I’ve learned a great deal of what I want out of life. Not saying that I’m not an ambitious person, because I think if you were to speak to any of my friends, all of them would say I am a very ambitious person, but I think that sort of ambition needed a little more maturity and a little more wisdom. I’m still not there yet, but I’m a lot closer to that sort of state than ever before.

One of the main events that happened recently is that I finally moved out.

After many years of moaning, groaning, and just overall complaining about how much I hate the commute, how much I hate the suburbs, I finally went and did it. I moved downtown. Honestly, my overall happiness has improved immensely in the past few weeks. There were a lot of factors that contributed to why and when I moved out, but I won’t delve too deeply into that here. It does, however, relate back to knowing when to walk away.

I found out that it takes a lot of courage to move forward with your life. We’re all so accustomed to a certain way of life, a certain way of every day, that sometimes we forget that we will never achieve the greatness we deserve unless we actually take a step forward.

Sometimes it takes a really long time to be sure of a decision…Β But hey, high risk, high reward, right?Β None of us will get anywhere in life unless we change our perceptions and we change our mindsets.

  • Went to the @britishlibrary's Harry Potter exhibit today! Super cool to see some of the original manuscripts written by J. K. Rowling. πŸ“– Did you know that "Fudge" was originally written as a Muggle, and he was to appear in the very first chapter of the entire series? Or that in the second book, Harry and Ron were supposed to crash into the lake and then be rescued by English-speaking merpeople? The coolest thing though, was seeing the full handwritten plan of "Order of the Phoenix" all laid out in four sheets of paper, detailing how each chapter would contribute to the overall prophecy, and how minor characters would show up in the book (e.g. Ginny, Cho, Hagrid, the Order, and Dumbledore's Army). This plan was written way before the first book was even published! J. K. Rowling is a genius! 😍 #BLHarryPotter
