I just wanted to take a minute out of my weekend to post this song. I've always been a fan of Coldplay but when you mix in the Chainsmokers...FIRE!! They couldn't have released this song at a more perfect time.
On Friday after work I had a few drinks with a co-worker and we had an interesting conversation. We talked about a lot of things, but we ended up mostly discussing our future aspirations. I explained that I felt I had already achieved my educational goals. I can't quite remember how we got to the topic of our missed opportunities, but I told her mine was computer science.
I explained that I felt I’d missed my calling in studying computer science and that I should have gone into IT. That was when she reminded me to always aim to be the best person I can be. I think it's easy to get lost in a routine and/or become complacent. Her words have stuck with me the past few days.
Over the weekend I took the time to go hiking and reflect on everything she said. It's refreshing to have someone in your life that continues to push you to be a better person. The best way I can describe how I am feeling is that it’s like having your life restored! I thought I was never going to go back to school, but she planted that thought in my head and I’m excited!
Now, I'm looking into returning to a university and getting a third degree. It's still just a thought, but every day that passes I'm realizing it's something I really want to do. Everyone knows the saying "Never say never" and now I can't help but laugh at myself. I'll keep you posted on what happens. In the meantime, enjoy the song!
