Things that Refocus Me

Business

Business

I chose this picture because it shows when I visited a local small business and it helped me focus my efforts towards my career goals and how to achieve those.

Cars/Driving

Cars/Driving

The sense of freedom given when someone first gets their driver's license is an amazing feeling. This feeling has never really left me it has just gotten more of a calming experience. When I first got my license, I had already drove around the small town that my grandmother had lived in at the time to learn how to drive and the rules of the road. However, the small town of Tracy City, TN did not prepare me for the slight traffic of Hickory or the worse traffic of Charlotte. After about two months I was in the groove of everything and using a drive no matter the time of day as an escape from everyone and everything. Cars have been a big hobby and part of my life since right before high school. Working on and driving cars have given me a way to express myself and to get away from school and work and sometimes even family. I chose this picture because it shows the day that I picked up a parts car for my other BMW and shows the work and passion I have for cars.

Detailing

Detailing

I chose this picture because it represents a side job that I have of detailing cars to sit back and work on something that is a tedious and very satisfying in the long haul to me. It focuses me because it is something that you have to take your time on if you want it done correctly.

Family

Family

Although my family can be the most annoying people at times, they are the reason I am the person I am today (those pictured and others. Family is important to me because in the end they are always there and motivating me in many different ways. They may not always agree with my decisions (such as the buying and selling of most of the cars or things I have owned) but have always supported me in whatever I decided to do. They have been there for the amazing times and the worst of times. I chose this picture because it was a time we all got to get together to go out to eat for someone's birthday.

Friends

Friends

In the same sense of family, I would not be the same without all of my friends I have had over the years (not pictured). Although I may not see them all all the time we can pick up right where we left off and are always there for each other. I think that the biggest influencer on who I am today was when we were younger and always causing trouble and having fun. Having the friends I have and have had was awesome because even when there was nothing to do we made the most of it and always had a blast. They have been there through everything and have never left my side. They refocus me by offering an escape and also working on my goals with me. I chose this picture because it shows a time that me and my friends had a blast on one of my birthdays and reminds me of all the trips we made back in high school to destress and to have time to get away so we could refocus.

Kadee

Kadee

Kadee has been a big influence in my life and also has been the best thing that has happened to me. I was not expecting someone to enter my life when she did but I am glad she did. I am very bad at making goals seem too farfetched at times but she helps me stay focused and ready to go for the next challenge. I also get burnt out quickly when it is something I am not passionate about or when it is something that seems pointless. However, every time I feel this was Kadee is there to help and always wanting to cheer me up. I chose this picture because it shows a time when I was burnt out and stressed the week before and went and had a great getaway with her.

Nature

Nature

Nature has grown on me (no pun intended). However, just seeing pictures to me is cool and all but I would much rather go and see things firsthand. The smoothness of a river or creek in one place then rapids in another to the smell of flowing water and mist, I love it all. Nature used to just be there for me and never quite captured my eyes but now I see and take in nature all the time. I am partial to North Carolina having grown up here but also love Georgia and Florida due to family and vacations. I think that nature is calming but for me it is only when in person that it really calms me because in that moment my mind doesn't wander like it does when looking at pictures. I chose this picture because it is a hike me and a friend went on during finals week to regroup our thoughts and get a mental break from studying.

Racing

Racing

I chose this picture because racing has always been something I can improve in but it is not like work or school to me so it refocuses me in my other work areas.

Superhero Movies

Superhero Movies

I use movies and tv shows to relax and regain focus when I am starting to see myself spin in circles. I chose this picture specifically to represent superheroes because we saw this in Cincinnati, OH.

Traveling

Traveling

I chose this picture because I believe the ultimate way to learn and focus on your goals is to travel not only to get a break but to see things in different perspectives.
