What Have You Done to Change Your Life?

Yesterday was my college graduation. After 8 months of homework and stress, I finally made it!

Graduation is always a turning point in one's life. A time to venture into the world without the structure of the school walls.

All of this got me thinking about change. I decided last year to go back to school and take my life in a whole new direction. Scary? Yes. Regrets? None. As impossible that it may seem, sometime you just have to take chances and know that everything will work out.

What have you done that has made a profound change in your life? Recently graduated? Conquered a fear? Ran your first 10k?

Post your stories below!

Stay Healthy,
