Going after what you want in this life is never easy, but I truly believe that nothing is ever really impossible. You might not always make it to you final destination, but you will be surprised how many obstacles you can overcome and how many points you can check off of “your bucket list” along the way. When I was in my early twenties, I recall finding a list I had made with my cousin when I was a little girl (unfortunately I do not know where the list is now) but I recall almost falling out of my seat when I read it.
