What's Best for You

A little website made me look at myself a bit differently a few months ago. 16 Personalities is a test that takes your responses and categorizes them into a four letter combination that becomes your personality type. I'm an ISFJ (Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, Judging) and I've never encountered something that describes me so well.
All of this being said, I like to make people happy (honestly who doesn't??). It can be a bit of a challenge, though, because one of my weaknesses is overloading myself. I feel like I can't say no. I warp things in my mind to make it seem like I can handle it all, when in reality I'm drowning.

I had an incredible freshman year, I got involved in organizations that I'm passionate about and met people I care deeply about. Those organizations do take up a lot of my time, but I love what I do. 

Around late March to early April I was writing a newspaper article over how 1/2 of our basketball team would be transferring in the fall (it's one of my best articles if I do say so myself-- let me know if you want to read it). I also ended up potentially signing to be Drury's first triathlete.

The sport of triathlon has been huge throughout the past 5 years of my life. So when the opportunity presented itself I thought it was meant to be. I got super excited and told a lot of people.

I'm not going to go into all the details but sometimes it just doesn't work out. It was an incredible opportunity but for a number of reasons I realized that it wasn't what was best for me. 

So many times I have stretched myself too thin. I want to continue to be my happiest self and that comes with putting yourself first sometimes.

I'm still staying connected to the triathlon community and I can't wait to see where it takes me. I'm thankful for my family and friends who support me no matter what.

Until next time,
Taylor xx
