I am so excited to tell you I HAVE BOOKED A TRIP TO EUROPE , MAY 2016 !!!!
I have worked really hard to be able to afford this trip and it’s for 45 days!
I will be 22, and get a lot of backlash from my mom about being a girl and travelling along and not finishing my bachelor’s ..blah blah blah
but guess what? I figured I have one life! I will never be old enough, or accomplished enough for my mom to let me travel alone. I will always be a baby , so I thought I’d rather just go ahead!!
I have been meaning to write a blog post, but didn’t know what to write about so I thought let’s talk about being a black sheep 🙂
I am the self proclaimed but very deserving black sheep of my family .. and I love it!
Here are 10 reasons why you must love it too :
1. You are always compared to others, and you really don’t care :
You know when your parents compare you to your smart cousins? And try to “motivate” you by telling you of their accomplishments? Yeah, that stuff doesn’t bother you. You are extremely happy for your cousins and friends, but really their success make you really happy and will never be a reason for jealousy! You are this very secure person and you LOVE it.
^ replace that with your name please
2. No one expects anything of you:
The biggest perk is everyone expects the worst of you, and whenever you do something remotely “good” in their opinion, they will treat that like something extra ordinary!!
3. Your knowledge is extensive:
Because the black sheep are always on the run so they know a lot about things. They explore a lot, they get to live a lot , they meet cool people and they are basically awesome!
4. You are an optimist:
You like to think of this world as a happy place, where everything is good as long as you are good. Your friends probably think you’re crazy but what’s a life not perceived well?
5. You are HAPPY:
When other people are not happy with your choices , you are okay with their opinions and completely happy with your life, you know you’re good 🙂
6. Your kids will probably be cooler than you:
You think of yourself as this really amazing person, and you are determined to raise your kids the same way.. so you know your kid will probably be a black sheep as well
7. You are a self motivator:
You set your own goals, work towards them, have your own way and pace of doing things ..and guess what? That’s all you need to be good at anything!
8. You understand life is too short to make poor choices / worry about them
You think of life as this journey which must always be travelled really well, and if by chance, you do make poor choices, you know everything will be okay.
9. You take your time:
You take your sweet time with everything ; major life decisions and commitments, and sometimes you don’t. You are whimsical and sometimes you are just super slow!
10. You refuse to be tied down:
You know your decisions are unconventional, and people don’t get it. But you’d rather be making life choices that make you happy instead of getting tied down to the expectations other people have of you. You will probably never regret your decisions, and even if you do, you will have no one but yourself to blame.
