I am cautious.

Not that I’m not a risk-taker.

But I’m a calculated risk-taker.

It took me 5 years to finally apply for grad school. After 2 years of wondering what program I should pursue and 3 years of drooling over a program that I figured was out of reach. But now, I’m here. Exactly where I want to be at this moment.

It might take me awhile to get where I’m going.

But cautiously, I tread onward.

I believe that when you really want something… like really want it… you don’t wait for New Year’s resolutions to resolve to do it. Decisions and habits aren’t made in a day.

Still, it’s a good day to reflect.

On where you’ve been and where you want to go.

But if you’re not there yet, maybe you’re just like me. With big ideas and dreams. That you pursue quietly and cautiously.
