What is the most important lesson that life has taught you:

That it’s okay to not have everything figured out, and that if you stay with a student mentality, curious, eager, and hungry to learn and experience more in life, then your adventure awaits you. It’s so easy to allow society, this world, or people in our circle to make you think you’re supposed to be at a certain point in life by a certain age. NO. You’re exactly where you’re supposed to be at this very moment. And if there’s something about that, that you don’t like, you are not a tree. Get up and change your circumstances. That could be the people in your circle or the things you feed in your head. We can’t control our situations sometimes, but we damn sure can control whether or not we decide to do something about it. There’s a beauty in not having all the answers to life. Learn to dance down that line of mystery when you find yourself the most stressed. It’s hard to appreciate our struggles, but in hindsight, they’re the best thing that could happen to us. Follow your heart, take your brain with you, and go leap as far outside of your comfort zone as possible. You won’t be flying right away, but I promise you, you’ll grow a pair of wings and experience the best view you’ve ever seen in your life.
