    This is so great, I constantly get the feeling that I need to be doing more. I am always reminding myself that hard work will get me where I want to be, so I just need to keep working. Great reminder Chelsea!

    Loving this list, and giving out compliments always seems to brighten people's day as they're usually unexpected šŸ™‚

    This is good! Hmmm, I know that reading for me is essential, I have to have time each day for it (and I'm happier with a lot of reading time!) I also need some alone time, and time to relax with my husband and kids. I hate being too busy and rushed, being on my back deck with my family right now makes me really happy;)

    That is some solid advice!!! I have been listening to Yes, Please on audiobook and Amy Pohler made a comment about how instead of people asking 20 somethings what they want to do with their life, they should be asking what they dont want to do because it is something they can answer!

    Love this. I definitely believe in it, which is why I started my own business and am extremely happy doing things my own way at my own pace šŸ™‚

    Yes yes yes! I wish I had known to take this advice in college too! I'm learning to do just what I know to do now and not spend so much time worrying.

    Chelsea! I saw your graphic on my bloglovin feed and had to click! I've never heard that quote before, but I really love it! It makes so much sense, and I can immediately think of a few situations where it totally applies. Be totally honest – would you mind if I used this prompt as a blog topic of my own where I listed the "things I know". Of course I would 100% link back to you and your blog and give you credit for the idea. Let me know!!

    Yup… knowing the small stuff is sometimes the big stuff. This is great!

    You always write exactly what I need to hear. Like an internet best friend… haha! Thanks for this!

    I've been feeling like this a lot lately. Thank you for your (and your dad's) words of wisdom. Sometimes the best choice is just to make a small move in any direction and see where it leads!

    Such an awesome lesson! Gosh have I struggled with this lately. I love this quote so much and it makes me feel better that I'm not sure what my next move will be. You always know what I need to hear. It's scary!

    I really agree with you about the night out business. Since I live in such a HUGE city, I often feel like I need to go out all the time… but seriously, my favorite nights are just chill nights in!

    I'm going to spend some time today writing down what I know for sure. šŸ™‚

    Love this reminder, especially since I'm going through a time of change now with some big decisions to be made šŸ™‚

    Love this, and so true. I think sometimes just taking a break and yes, reading a good book, gives you some time to get some perspective! Such a good reminder! I always know I'll get some good inspiration here!

    This is really perfect fatherly advice…taking time out to listen to yourself, your heart, and to find out what you really need will help you get re centered and on the right track. We often forget that in this busy world.

    I love your dad's advice. I find myself thinking more as an adult that I don't know what to do than I did when I was younger… especially when it comes to my career/the future. What I do know is that the job that I have now is the most fulfilling job that I've ever had and if I can find a way to supplement my income I would stay here as long as possible. I also know that puppy cuddles can cure anything. So can giving a puppy tummy rubs. And just being greeted by a dog in general.
