Blog Post #1

This I Believe Topics:

  • “I Don’t Have to Decide” – If you ask anyone who really knows me they’ll all tell you one thing about me: that I am incapable of making decisions. Of any kind. In life, people will tell you to make choices. But I believe that I don’t have to decide. If I want to be a surgeon and have a family and travel the world, I can do it all. They say you can’t have it all, but I believe that if that’s what I want to do, then I’ll do it.
  • “Don’t be Pushed by Your Problems” – My favorite quote is by Ralph Waldo Emerson and says, “Don’t be pushed by your problems, be led by your dreams.” I heard this and it really spoke to me. For my entire life, I have worried about the most trivial things. I’m a worrier, always have been. But I also have big plans for the future. I believe that it isn’t always possible to live in the moment, you have to think about the past and the future. But motivating myself by seeing all the things I could accomplish is monumentally more helpful to me than being chased by my problems.

Civic Issue Blog Ideas:

  • Military Veteran support – I have enormous respect for anyone who has devoted time to serving the country for the rest of us. I have people close to me that have given up so much so that we can feel safe. It is only reasonable that we should provide support for them after they are done serving.
  • Alternative Fuel – It is widely known at this point that the climate of the world is changing and the only way to stop is if we do something about it. Finding alternative fuel will help decrease the damage to the environment because they release fewer emissions and could be more readily available.

Passion Blog Ideas:

  • “Gluten Free Living” – Last year, I found out that I had a gluten intolerance. I wasn’t diagnosed with celiac, but I would still have to gut gluten entirely out of my diet. At first, I didn’t know a whole lot about gluten, as I’m sure most people don’t. I’ve faced some difficulties, but it is all worth it if I feel that much better without it.
  • “Organized College Life” – Yes. I am one of those people. I have to have everything organized at all times. And I feel overwhelmed if everything isn’t as it should be. Now some people might say that it is unnecessary to color code my planner, or make lists for everything, but it helps me keep everything under control.
