Shout out to all you dream killers out there! You’ve only taught us to be more resilient. We appreciate you in a special kind of way. Dream-killers teach us that people are willing to impose their perceived limitations on you. What’s really important is to always protect your dreams, find other people like you, and don’t take it personally. Their motive is typically to protect their way of life and usually disguise this by saying they’re trying to help. Your dreams are just that — YOURS! Don’t let anybody punk you out of doing some great! More is possible.. As much as we don’t forget the people who doubt us, don’t shouldn’t ever forget those that support us. Happy Tuesday guys!

Why do we put so much pressure on our futures? Although us millennials are especially guilty of this, it seems like such a normal thing that comes up in my conversations. At 27, I have these heavy expectations of myself (like making the Forbes 30 Under 30 list). I create these success deadlines with myself that if I don’t accomplish them by a certain point I almost feel devastated, or rather disappointed that I may be working in the wrong direction. I always told myself that by at least 30 I would make some impact on the world or even a small community. It’s not about the recognition, but there’s a little shame of feeling that I haven’t done enough with my life... and that time is running out. I can admit I do feel an extreme pressure to succeed. The pressure doesn’t just lie in business, but also my personal life — children especially. I want to build a family so badly before I’m in my mid 30s that I feel like I’m going to be in a mental crisis if I’m 30 and nowhere near ready. Regardless, the desire is there. What’s more important than these things? What is the reality check I need to hear with my self-given pressures? Can things really be solved with simplistic patience?

Love is in the air for my friend and she doesn’t even know it 😉 I am finding her the best man on the @wingman_app... Yes, I am the ultimate wingman. We’ve been friends for so long and I can’t wait to help her find the one. 💕#wingman #wingmanapp #dating #besties #bestfriendgoals #bestfriends

It was a weekend well spent at Breakneck Ridge. Getting to the top of this mountain took a couple hours and it certainly wasn’t easy. Any slip could be brutal, hence the name. As we ascended, we stopped for drone shots and took in the vast views of the Hudson River. Once we made it to the top, we had a bottle of wine, and laid out in the sun.

We also saw the abandoned Bannerman’s Castle on Pollepel Island (swipe to see). This castle apparently has a lot of history attached to it, it was used during the Revolutionary War to prevent the British from passing upriver. It later became a military surplus warehouse owned by Francis Bannerman, VI.
I made the not-so-smart decision of wearing Nike’s with virtually no grip on them whatsoever. Needless to say, I was slipping on all the leaves and sliding through the dirt. If someone can point me in the right direction of hiking boots that are also stylish, that’d be helpful!

In a city of infinite options, sometimes there’s no better feeling than knowing that you only chose to be with one. @fitztheworldcitizen ❤️

Happy Wednesday! How’s everyone feeling today? I’m anxious for warm weather. I’m kind of excited that this weekend will be in the 70’s (that’s a big deal for us). What do you guys like to do in the spring with your time off?
