Another quotation I really like to live by is from an unknown author, but it says, “If you want to know where your heart is, look to where your mind goes when it wanders.” This quotation could mean anything for anyone, but for me, this quotation represents how I got to where I am today in beautiful, sunny Florida. I have always wanted to be part of the UM community and experience year-round fun in the sun, but it took hard work and dedication for it to all come together. If you want something bad enough, it will lead you through all the stress that school just loves to bring. The most important thing to remember is that dreams aren’t just some unattainable ideas we have; they’re the ultimate goals that we strive to achieve through school, work, or whatever activities we may be involved in.
Don’t let yourself get lost in the midst of life. Take a step back, think of your favorite quotation, and remember the reasons why you work so hard in the first place. Having said that, I’d like to leave you all on a positive note with my favorite quotation of all written by the famous Mark Twain. He said, "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." Work hard, live your life, and make the best out of every moment!
