“If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” -Vincent Van Gogh

I’ve come to a realization recently, as humans we get so caught up in our daily routines whether it is your job, your children, or your just life in general that we forget to live. To embrace everything. Time does not come back, every single thing you do will only be enjoyable once with the anticipation and adrenaline it is to do that activity. Even if you do it once or a hundred times you will only thrive from it once. The other times your just use to it.

Be present in the moment of today. In any desire that you may have in your life, know that you can accomplish it. Even if it takes you one month, one week, or one year. Never let fear or the opinion of others take over your head. There is always a way, you just have to find the right accommodations. Do what it is that you have always wanted because if you wait, you will be waiting forever. Go forth and conquer!! LIVE AS IF YOU DIED TODAY!!!

I waited 3.5 years to go skydiving because I let others mentally take me out of the idea. Until I just went for it. Actually doing it showed me that I have the power to be. To fly. Never settle. Skydiving is by far the most amazing thing I have ever done. I will never forget this day and I will forever cherish this moment like no other.
