What would your 13 year old self think?
That is the question I asked myself after making a dream of mine recently come true. I thought pretty long about it and as proud as I am to have stepped my feet onto the Denver Broncos stadium for the first time in June of 2018, I think my 13 year old self would be a tad disappointed that I waited until I was 28 to make this happen.
For most people that know me, I grew up a Denver Broncos fan. I had John Elway posters plaster everywhere, dressed up as a football player for halloween, traded football cards with the boys and the list continues. I always dreamed of coming out to Denver and seeing the field and it took me until 28 to do it…but it was still a goal of mine.
That evening after I was able to do this, I was on cloud nine the whole evening and then I continued to think about why I waited so long to make it happen and then I started to make a list of all the things I know I shouldn’t wait any longer on.
Sometimes we wait to do things because….
We want that perfect opportunity to come before we leave a situation that isn’t the best
We want that one person to be with before we buy that house/puppy/car/item
We are scared
And lastly because we literally have no reason at all to wait
We fantasize about how once we meet this goal it will feel like, what it will be like, etc but in reality we have to remember than no moment will ever be perfect so waiting is just an excuse.
Stepping onto the field of the Broncos stadium has been a dream of mine since I was little. I always told myself I would move there after college. However God has other things in mind for me and I am really in love with me life. But you should never wait to make your dreams come true regardless of what life throws at you because life will always do that.
So put yourself in your 13 year old shoes for a day, have you accomplished everything you wanted to? If not, what are you waiting for?
I put my list together and I will be doing them more. It is going to take sometime but bucket lists, dreams and goals help you continue to have the self-love and confidence you deserve.
Stop waiting and make it happen. I am really glad I made my dream come true because it is never too late but I am still unsure why I waited so long to make it happen. I don’t want you to make the same mistake.
