Come Alive

I feel I should preface this post by saying I am the queen of quotes. My walls are covered with them. I used to use this app that would send me a motivational quote every day. I think a good quote can change the whole day. So today's #Blogtober14 post Favorite Quote and Why got me really excited. 

But despite my obsession with quotes, this one was easy.

This quote has stuck with my since my freshman orientation at UGA. It was on the folder they gave us for the two days we were there. And I remember seeing it and thinking: isn't that what college is all about? Finding that thing that makes you come alive?

To me, this quote really puts life in perspective. Why spend the rest of your life working a job or being a relationship or doing anything that isn't making you come alive?? It all just seems a little crazy. There's no reason to do something just because you think you should. Do it because it makes you happy. I feel like we tend to ignore that in today's world and get all caught up in the world just trying to keep up with the Joneses. 

This quote honestly helped me get to where I am today after some things hit the fan last spring and I was left trying to find a direction.
