Today’s blog post isn’t about fashion, but a more more personal post. It definitely isn’t something that I had intended on sharing, but I figured, it has been on my mind so much, I might as well put it out into the universe and share. I do feel like it is important for me to sometimes vear off into topics that are not just fashion, or beauty related. I want to share with you all some real life issues I have and would love your feedback in return.
Let me just start by saying something that was always said to me and has stuck with me. “The one thing in life that is inevitable is change.” I have been feeling a bit restless as of late, and feeling the need to do and try something new. I always try to focus on the positive and remind myself of how blessed I am with everything that I have. And I totally am! Don’t get me wrong. I have an amazing husband, a wonderful family, incredible friends, a good job, I live in a beautiful city and am so close to the beach, etc. But, it’s just starting to feel like I need to turn a page in my life and start something new.
I mostly mean this in terms of a career move. I know so many people now talk about millennials and how they all have a side hustle, they all want to work for themselves, blah blah blah. But hey, that is how I feel. And I don’t feel bad for feeling that way. This blog is my side hustle and I truly do love it. I wish I had more time to dedicate to it, to grow it, and make it into something that I am truly proud of. But the reality is, life takes over. There are not enough hours in the day. I am tired at the end of the evening by the time I get home, and all I want to do is relax in front of the TV for a bit before I go to sleep to start all over again the next day. Does anyone else feel like this?
Maybe I am in a creative rut. I have been talking to so many of my friends and family about this, in particular my husband. I am trying to find out where I belong; what I should be doing with my life; where I see myself in 5 years, 10 years, etc. I know those are all such complex questions, but I don’t ever want to get too comfortable in the state that I am in. And I guess now, I am starting to feel restless. Like I need a change.
Some of the things I have been doing lately to try and get on track are listening to new podcasts, reading tons of online articles, and simply just having discussions with my friends who are entrepreneurs. Sometimes conversations can spark a great idea, so I have been trying to brainstorm to figure out where I am supposed to be. This will probably take years and years, but I am willing to wait and find out what life has in store for me. I just have to be patient (which isn’t really a great virtue of mine), but c’est la vie!
I would love to hear your feedback and know if any of you have gone through, or are going through this as well.
