My parents told me that when I was a young toddler, I wanted to be a doctor, dancer, writer, flight attendant, singer, and actor all at once. I was constantly envisioning myself as a new person each time I came up with a new profession; I was always living in the future. I could never pinpoint what I wanted to do. Duke changed that.
As a new academic year begins, we all begin to set expectations and goals for ourself in the upcoming year. Whether a new or returning student, you've probably already started thinking about what this semester can hold. As you go forward, we in the Wellness Center encourage you to consider one question:
What's Your True Blue?
We all have times where we have to make choices. "True Blue" can mean thinking about who you are and what you value, it can mean thinking about your Duke experience and what you want it to be, or it might just mean considering how you plan to stay true to your goals and authentic self as you navigate your college experience.
