Note: 20-something  year old Stephanie has dedicated her blog to sharing stories about her journey relocating from Chicago to Maine. Stephanie is all about encouraging those who, like her, want to ‘veer off the beaten path and create one of their own’.

As part of my ‘Changing the WORLD’ project (which you can check out here) Stephanie shared a quote that she believes will help our generation. Check it out!!!

What life lesson, quote or value is so important to you that you would love to share to help our generation?

“If it’s both terrifying and amazing then you should definitely pursue it.”

This quote really resonates with me because my upcoming move from Chicago to Maine is just that: equally terrifying and amazing! I’m not moving to Maine for a job, a significant other, or even family. I’m moving to Maine for me and only me.

I’m excited to embark on this journey because not many people do this kind of thing. Most people don’t just pick up their lives and move somewhere simply because they want to. It’s often seen as taboo or even reckless. I want our generation to embrace doing the things that scare us because otherwise you’ll always wonder, “what if?”

So my advice is to do the things that scare you, follow your gut, and if it’s both terrifying and amazing then you should definitely pursue it.
