Bloglovin and Other Fun Stuff

For a long while I've been hearing about Bloglovin.
I had no idea what it was, what it did, or why I should be on it.
Well, yesterday I decided to join and it's really cool!
You can click on the button over here -------------------------------------> to check it out and follow me.
I'm already following most of my favorite bloggers on there.
Also, I've added a up page at the top of my blog...35 by 35.
It's a list of 35 things I want to accomplish by/during the age of 35.
Hopefully when that's done I can make a list of 50 by 50!
I've been reading a lot lately about not waiting for "the right time" to do things.
Waiting for a husband to come along to buy a house.
Waiting for friends to plan your dream vacation.
Waiting for ________ to do ________.
Whatever it may be.

I read a quote recently that really touched me.
"I'm not waiting for anybody, anymore! I'm going to run as fast as I can, fly as high as I can, I am going to soar and if you want you can come with me! But I'm not waiting for you anymore." - C. JoyBell C.

It's easy to dream big in this Pinterest world we live in.
You can look at pictures of your dream house, dream vacation, even your dream man {I may or may not have a bunch of pictures of Ryan Gosling on my boards...}.
But actually doing things we dream about can be scary.
Sure, you have to have some amount of money to go on dream vacations, but not all dreams require a lot of money.
Go on a weekend road trip with a friend.
Spend the night camping under the stars.
Go for a run every day to reach your goal weight.
And if you have money saved up, go on that vaca you've always dreamed about.
Who says you have to wait for the perfect job, husband, or body to do certain things?
I'd rather live my life to the fullest than look back when I'm older and say "I wish I had..."
I used to let my insecurities hold me back.
It's something I'm working on.
This list of 35 dreams will definitely push me out of my comfort zone.
I truly hope it encourages you to make a list of your own.
Even if it's just 10, 5, or 2 things you have always dreamed of.
