Never Give Up on Your Dreams.

If you told me I’d be going to grad school 5 years ago I would’ve laughed in your face. But, with all seriousness, I never thought I was grad school material. I did well during my undergrad years, but the thought of being in school 1 1/2 to 2  more years seemed unbearable. Plus, I started hearing what people around me were saying. People would say “ yeah, grad school is so hard”, or “ it’s a waste of time and money”. However, after finishing my undergrad, I just knew I needed to get into graduate school to help others in a greater capacity. My ultimate goal is to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, so having a master’s is kind of a must- there’s no other way around it! But, that’s beside the point. I’m here to tell you to never give up. Never stop chasing your dreams!

Here are 5 things I’ve learned about chasing dreams: 

  1. Sometimes you literally need to stop listening to others. They do not know you like you know yourself.
  2. It sounds so cliché, but you can do anything you put your mind to. But seriously, with God, all things are possible. 
  3. Chasing your dreams is tough, but it will be so worth it in the end.
  4. Don’t be a negative Nancy and stop putting yourself down. This will only slow you down. (sorry if your name is actually Nancy)
  5. Pray, pray, and then pray some more. Praying will honestly get you through the tough times. 

So, go and chase your dreams….

-Aolani

& remember you are wonder

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.

Psalm 139:14
