Being stuck in a mantra of the same things day in and day out can take a toll on our sanity. I feel as if I am the type of person who is always looking to better myself personally; in my career, in my relationships, in my health and it is thrilling to see what changes can do for your happiness. People always say this millennial bullshit that we aren’t ever satisfied, let me tell you, you’re kind of right. The reason is because we know we can do better. That is why I would like to consider us as the risktaking generation.
By no means am I going to dis other generations, because many people have worked so hard to become something and have a satisfying life. For myself, I need the risk. If I stay put in what I am doing, how will I ever grow? I have been in many situations where negativity has consumed me. Little by little I have started to let that shit go. Let me tell you it feels good. I have been making leaps in my life since I have begun. I have moved out of situation where roommates have negative impact on me, I have left jobs where sitting in a call center drove me insane. My aspirations drive me, and one day will push me into the successful career and life I aim for.
I took a risk on my life when I moved to Indianapolis; this was a culture shock for me. I moved from my hometown where everyone knew each other to knowing hardly anyone. Let me tell you, it was one of the best decisions I have made. I met some people who are truly unforgettable, my fiancé specifically. If I would have never left that small town I would have never grown to be as vivacious as I am today. I have learned so much about people, food, culture, and art. I met the love of my life. Even being far from my family, I grew closer to them. All of these life events are obtainable for anyone willing to make the jump.
Take the risk, it may be the best decision you will ever make. It could be switching careers, not being scared to go on that first date, dying your hair a totally different color, this list could go on for ages. Yet, know that if your risk ends up being a failure, it was a learning lesson, and life can never give you enough of those. Those with knowledge are those with power. Don’t be scared, take the risk. It is worth it.
