Oh hey there stunnas! Long time no talk! While it was hard to part with the blog last week (trust me, I thought about posting every single day), it was also necessary. Aside from being beyond busy schedule wise, I also wanted to take the week to indulge in life a little. With that being said, I am back and ready to get to it!
I have been spending a lot of time lately thinking about how much my life has changed in the past year and boy, has it changed. As a quick synopsis: one year has brought me cancer, a move, the most solid relationship I’ve ever had, and a new job. Needless to say, I’ve been experiencing some major changes. Even more importantly, I have been expereincing growth. I can finally say that there are things happening in my life that are both positive and empowering; however, things are still a serious work in progress.
For those of you who know me (and those of you who have followed my blog for the past year) you know that above everything, I have always struggled with career, or in my case, the lack there of. While I have always been fortunate enough to be employed and to bring in a decent income, I have never really been able to break into a career that I am actually passionate for [hence this little blog that you are all reading]. This same feeling has come up in multiple avenues of my life. While I am fortunate enough to have seen some amazing spots in the world, my travel to-do list doesn’t even have a dent in it. Oh, and can I mention that there are a lot of designer handbags I need to own?
Seeing this quote took me into a reflective spot where I started to realize that while I have amazing people and things happening in my life, I will always be striving for a life that feels as good as it looks. I want a life that is filled with adventure and excitement; passion and connections. I also never want to feel guilty for craving more than what I have achieved because while I am grateful beyond words for all that I have, there is nothing shameful in pursuing something more.
From the materials of life to the moments that become lasting memories, I crave a life that makes me feel completely beatific. I think that’s a pretty good goal for life, don’t you?
