As in ‘feeling’. All right, I’m about to get real with y’all. There have been many days in the last little while where I wasn’t feeling very motivated and heavily questioning what I was doing with my life, including but not limited to this blog. Am I wasting my time? I don’t know. I feel like there is a lot of ‘Is this what I should be doing’ and ‘The right path’ going on and I for one, am not into it. While it’s fine to question where you’re at (because who wants to get complacent?), I’ve become a tad obsessed.
After many long nights discussing with other mid 20-somethings, I think its agreed – we all go through this once in a while. Me? I hate ‘the path’. I love the adventure not knowing where I’ll end up, I enjoy the journey, the process and the self discovery. And sometimes, I just need to remember that. HOWEVER. I will say it’s tough at times. No path means sometimes your friends reach the #goals quicker and that’s where the doubt creeps in (at least for me). Not having a secure path also means it’s scary and unknown and things can take a wrong turn real quick.
There are always going to be people who don’t like or understand what you’re doing. ‘What’s a freelancer?’ ‘Why don’t you go get a real job?’ And they’ll never stop telling you, albeit with your best interest in mind. Don’t listen. Everyone has an opinion. But they have different goals, a different lifestyle, a different understanding of what it means to be ‘successful’. This is your life and you have to be happy when creating it. Go out, don’t stop hustling and you’ll look back one day laughing at how unsure you felt and grateful that you never settled. And do not, I repeat do not, let the fear of the unknown stop you. Because you know what’s scares me more? Having my life laid out in front of me, planned to a T.
‘Edit your life frequently and ruthlessly. It’s your masterpiece after all.’
That one’s by Nathan W. Morris. And it could not be more relevant to my life at this stage. Now for those of you that came for the fashion (and have stuck around long enough for me to finish my little rant), let’s get in to that shall we?
This denim jacket is the perfect summer piece for me. It’s a little heavier, but I’m a person who is always cold so it works as a great throw over a dress / shorts / tee staple. I am wearing shorts underneath just because this dress is slightly shorter on one side, although you can’t really see them. I found these mules and decided to forgo the I-need-all-black-all-the-time mentality. So I picked them up in nude and I could not be happier that I did. They go with literally every piece of clothing that I own and are super comfortable to walk around in. I love that they’re versatile enough to wear with this outfit but also to the office or a meeting.
The phone case you see is from Richmond & Finch and is part of their new Beauty and The Beast Campaign. As serious Disney fan, I had to opt for the pretty pink / rose gold combo and could not be more obsessed. I usually shy away from anything pink, but aren’t you so proud that I’m stepping out of my comfort zone?
