What does it take to be an #icon? What does it take to be one of the ones that “got out” of your hometown? And for that matter, what about the people who don’t want to get out? • I’ve been doing a lot of inner searching on where I want to be in one month, one year, five years, and ten years. Of course, living life spontaneously is so important and fun. But, I thrive on some planning and paved paths. • This photo is of @sullivansaliby from a senior session we did over the summer. He has one semester left of high school and I’m feeling like I have to engrain some long lasting wisdom on the kid before he goes anywhere. See, Sullivan is much braver than me... not in like a case of a zombie apocalypse, but that’s a separate debate. No, Sullivan has these huge dreams at 17 that he’s so driven to just go catch. Truthfully, I was not. I wasn’t ready for change or even really sure of what I wanted to do... • I spent most of my undergrad commuting from my hometown to Madison and then to Whitewater for college classes. I was always REALLY embarrassed of that. I didn’t judge a single other person that wanted to save the money or didn’t know their path - it just felt like a cop out for me for being brave. • I was obsessed with becoming an icon. It was like a certain amount of Instagram followers or maybe miles from my childhood house would make that happen. Nope. There are days that I feel more like an icon than others, but “getting out”, getting famous, or your bank account doesn’t make you that. It’s how you choose to make your mark on the world. It’s how brave you can be to put yourself out there to be unapologetically you and change someone’s life for the better. In my eyes, THATS an icon. • Sullivan is becoming an icon a little earlier than me... because he’s so proud of what he’s doing, his art, and expressing himself. You ever feel like your little sibling teaches you more than you can ever teach them? #siblingadvice #wisconsinbloggers #janesvillewisconsin #downtown #janesvilleicons #seniorsunday #selfhelp #motivation #iamenough #mentalhealthawareness #believeinyourself #editedphoto #canonphotography #emyd #emydblog #aspiringblogger #lifecoach #positivemindset
