Enjoying the moment

I am a driven, ambitious person and I generally surround myself with similar people. My friends are very intelligent people who are rapidly forging themselves into great successes. Many of them, myself included, never seem to be satisfied with what we have achieved so far. I think that this is a good thing, but we also need to pause to enjoy what we have and the moment we are in.

I am grateful for what life has given me. I went through some hardships when I was younger, but without those, I don’t think I would be able to fully appreciate the quality of life that I now have. I don’t have much stability, but that’s not what I want at this point. I have a solid job at an interesting start-up company, an awesome group of friends, romance, great health and I live downtown in beautiful Seattle. Eventually, I want to get an MBA or JD.. or both, make one hell of a lot of money, find my “twwwuuue wuv” (Princess Bride haha), travel the world, improve my writing, and try as many new experiences as I can.
