So woah. I’m 25. Weird. I used to have my life completely planned out. I’d have a career, be married by 25, and have babies by like 27. And let me tell you, it could not be farther from the truth haha. Life is crazy, and now I am an old lady! I even get a discount on my car insurance now! haha.
But I cant complain one bit! At 25 I have learned to be completely comfortable in my own skin. I know what I like, what I dislike, and what I want for my life. And every decision I have ever made has given me wisdom and brought me to where I am today. I made it my goal to travel as much as I can, and luckily, I have been able to. I have been to almost every state and almost 18 countries now! And honestly, it has brought me the most joy in my life!
- And seriously, if you haven’t gone out and traveled, do it. Work a lot, save up your money and just go. It is something you will never regret, even if you get stuck sleeping in a train station a couple times along the way (which thanks to my cheap brother, I did)!
I have discovered that blogging has also been such an important piece of my life! I really do enjoy being able to throw together outfits and find creative ways to display them with my mama! And although at times it can also be discouraging, I remind myself why I do it......and that is not for followers or likes, but because I genuinely love it. It has brought me amazing opportunities - such as being in a magazine, a book, and even in a store! But most importantly it gave me the idea for my non-profit!
The past quarter century has made me realize how incredible my God is. Never once has he failed me. Do you know how long it took me to trust in his plan? In being as stubborn as I am, I thought I knew what was best, and I wanted to follow my own plan. Not realizing how much stronger I was when I just trusted in him. I can’t wait to see what else he has in store for me.....but in the mean time, can it at least slow down a little??
By the way.....This dress. I’m forever in love. Get it? Because it’s from Forever 21. First things first, I love wearing earthy colors like yellow, rust, or orange. For whatever reason, I just feel like they look best on me. Secondly, am I the only one who feels like pleats = instant classiness? I don’t know what it is about them, but they just have a classic feel to them. I am going out dancing to celebrate my birthday tonight and will be busting out my best moves!
