What Is Your Why?

Hi friends! I've been doing a bit of reflecting on my WHY lately. Why do I do the things that I do? As I sit here and type this at 10:30 on Tuesday night my mind is swirling with exam dates, volunteer schedules, graduate school applications, budgeting, the holidays coming up, work that I need to get done for Glisten and for my other job (I do the billing for an A/C company), etc. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. This is where my WHY comes in handy.

Your why keeps you going when things get tough.
Your why motivates you to wake up and tackle each day as it comes.
Your why pushes you to be better.
Your why keeps you sane.

What is my why? Well I have a few:

  • I want to become an SLP - the classes are tough and my schedule is jam packed with extra curricular activities BUT someday I'll get to help people communicate, connect, and be heard. I can't wait.
  • I want to show love to people around me and spread positivity + encouragement whenever I can - blogging takes up some time that I don't really have, but I truly LOVE connecting with you guys and sharing things that are on my heart.
  • I want to create a life that I love - I'm busting my butt now so that in a few years I'll be able to work a job that I love while still being able to spend quality time with my husband, friends, and family.
I have a few more but I'll just leave it at those for now :) Just remember - when the days are long and you're feeling overwhelmed and/or drained, cling to your why(s)!

Tell me - what is your why?

xo, Jess
