I’ve been a procrastinator for my entire life. As I’ve grown older, I’ve learned how to use it to my advantage and I now believe it actually helps me with productivity in most areas of my life. Since I’m accustomed to putting things off until the last possible second, I’ve become a very efficient person.
That being said, I got an email this morning notifying me that my domain, thedirectionofmydreams.com, was about to expire. I created this blog two years ago and haven’t posted once. I think about the empty pages every now and then, but I usually just brush it off with my usual, “I’ll get to it later”.
I originally created this blog because I had just graduated from college and wanted to document my new life. I’m two years into the “real world” now and my vision for this isn’t a whole lot clearer, but I’m going to make an effort to start posting.
Thinking back to my life two years ago, I can say that my life looks very similar. I changed jobs, but remain in the same industry. I’ve lived with new roommates in different homes, but haven’t ventured outside a 15-mile vicinity. I haven’t had any significant new relationships. I haven’t traveled anywhere new or amazing. This may not necessarily a problem for most people. But I have always had big dreams and it’s disappointing to look back and see that I haven’t pursued any of them. It’s scarily easy to get comfortable.
Now, I’m not saying that I’m not happy. I have great friends, a good job, and live in an amazing home. I am happy. I’m just beginning to realize that I’ve said, “I’ll get to it later” a few too many times and I’ve been putting off living my life to the fullest and experiencing my best life.
So… My hope is that I can use this blog as a tool for organizing my thoughts and dreams, and discovering what I really want to do.
