I read a quote recently that said something along the lines of time won't help you get over things, you need to make the decision to. I think that is such a huge point whether it be in relationships or career moves, you can't just wait around and allow life to move past you or go where it takes you. I think there's a misconception that 'life happens to you' and while I do believe that whatever is meant to be will be, I also believe that it is our responsibility to take control of our lives and make decisions about what we want it to look like. At the beginning of this year one of my resolution was to live more intentionally. Intentional living is all about being very conscious of the decisions I'm making and understanding that every action (consiously or unconsiously) that has the power to affect my life. I read some articles that really drive this point home. Check them out below:
