Learning Curve: The Journey

I'm a Disney kid. I was raised on Disney movies, televison, and radio. This doesn't go over well with a lot of my college peers. I guess they see it as something childish that should be abandoned during adolesence. Me? I'm a firm believer in Never Land and have plans to escape there with my younger sister after we kidnap Nick Jonas & Orlando Bloom. KIDDING! Growing up is important, but don't ever fear giving up something you love to satisfy others or maintain an image.

For the last several weeks, every time I turn on the TV, Miley Cyrus's face has been plastered all over the place, promoting her new movie: Hannah Montana The Movie. I have yet to see the movie, hopefully I can go next weekend with my best friend while I'm home for my brithday and the Taylor Swift concert!!! Anyway, there's a song in this movie that I will forever equate with my college journey: The Climb. If you haven't heard it (which is hard to believe) look it up on Youtube. It's worth the listen.

The song talks about dreams and how things can block you from achieving these dreams. There's a stanza that really resonates with me. It says

"The struggles I'm facing
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes might knock me down but
No, I'm not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I'm gonna remember most"

College is not the easiest thing. It's not an all day party, but it's not an all day study session either. You have to be willing to take chances and put yourself out there. Meet new people, experience new things. They may not turn out just the way you expected them to. Classes are going to be hard and some professors will be down right mean. Don't let it get you down. The good experiences outweigh the bad ones. College is going to be the one experience you'll remember for the rest of your life, so make it a story worth retelling someday.

What am I doing to make my story one that I want to tell over and over again? Tonight, I'm going to watch The Curious Case of Benjamin Button on the football field with a bunch of other Brad Pitt fans.

I challenge each of you this week to get out there and DO SOMETHING that makes your story worth being heard. Get involved in a new club, make a new friend, help someone at the store, smile to a complete stranger. Make your journey one to remember.

Quote to live by: "Life is not about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself."

I don't think you're ever too old for Disney. If people don't get it, then whatever ;-)
Glad to see you're out there enjoying your time the way you like it...even if you get up early/stay up late stressing over scheduling!
