Act and Grow

“Be the change you want to see in the world.” I’ve heard that quote on countless occasions, countless rallies and relays, countless classes that try to drive you in the direction of becoming someone you can be proud of in a world that is a constant sea of change. It is then when you have your eyes set on a goal and try and reach for it, but it’s okay if your dreams and goal shift or if you feel lost. I’ve had this in the back of mind, but it bothers me when I have invested so much time into something that I think would make me feel fulfilled. You just have to continue to find yourself, your voice, and your purpose. I have a good idea of what I want to be, but then again, things change. Just flow with it to act and grow.
