As the founder of Millennial Pursuit, I began my journey into a passionate life the first time I ever made a bucket list. It was the first moment I felt I could be something more than the world I lived in. I hoped, I dreamt, I believed. More importantly, I kept my head held high, even as the storms became darker.
It is easy to let the storm keep you locked in your bedroom. As I continue to find the beauty in my life, I think it is just as important to show others the beauty in their life.
So, as I am about to graduate my undergrad, I sit in fear that maybe I won't get to cross the CEO bullet point off my bucket list. I have surrounded myself with such powerful people, I forget that I am qualified too. In life, we often forget that the people we are lucky enough to call friends are the same people we are most alike. I look around at my friends every once in a while and I see a powerful woman who shines her light in the cloudiest of minds. I see a genius who refuses to do anything the "normal" way because he is too smart to waste time. I see a musician who is on the brink of his glory days. I see two business women who are going to blow the men away as they climb to the top of corporations. I see absolute greatness in the people I am so lucky to call my friends.
Gone are the days of a meaningless career that fills your week with misery. My friends and I, my generation and I, we refuse to settle. We have tasted the decadent wonders of the world while traveling, we have felt love that shakes us to the core, we have seen how depression can rip you away from life. We have risked our credit scores to obtain a piece of paper that may be the key to a door our parent's never could open. We want more.
We are millennials and we refuse to live a mundane life.
