“What’s Your Why”
Hey everyone! I know it’s been a while, but ya know...life. BUT I have some super exciting news. Even though I haven’t posted any new blog posts, I have been working on a project that I finally get to share with everyone.
A little over 6 months ago I felt a tug on my heart to do more. I know what you’re thinking - don’t you already *do* a lot? But this isn’t just another thing on my to do list. This is my legacy. This is my why.
So my “more” is a scholarship titled the “What’s Your Why?” Scholarship. It is a $500 scholarship for a graduating senior of Union County High School pursuing a business degree.
As I am about to graduate from Truett McConnell University I am reminded how much scholarships and financial aid have helped me to achieve my dreams and my goals without placing a huge financial burden on me in the process.
So what does “What’s Your Why?” mean to me and why did I pick that for the scholarship name? Every morning to get ready for my day I listen to podcasts and motivational videos on YouTube to pump me up to conquer my day. In several of those videos the topic of “What’s Your Why?” comes up pretty often. It got me thinking about my “why”. Why did I get up today? To plan some beautiful weddings. To be an amazing daughter, aunt, and girlfriend. To plow through two more college classes to finish my degree. To encourage someone else to follow their dreams. What is your reason for getting out of bed everyday? Is it for a paycheck? Or is it because you are living your dream?
This scholarship is something I hold dear to my heart and I hope that it allows someone to follow their dreams despite all the “setbacks” that present themselves.
So tell me...what‘s your why?
