I love this quote. I feel like I start off so many sunday inspiration posts by saying that, but its just as simple as that. I know not everyone loves inspirational quotes as much as I do, but having a good thought or mantra to remind yourself of where you want to be, what you want to do, or quite simply to have fun is such a beautiful thing and this is just that kind of quote. This is a mantra. This is something I strive to do. Lately I feel like I have been doing a lot of echoing, and I want to change that. I feel like everyone has a unique view of the world, shaped by our experiences, our values, and our goals, but so often our voices are all the same. That voice has been shaped by pop culture, friends, family, or how we think we should be. I want to have a unique voice, a truth all my own. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to agree with anyone or I don’t believe things that others believe, I just want a unique expression. Sometimes I find it hard to embrace who I am or my individuality. This quote is telling me to do exactly that. Be a voice, be who you are, and be okay with that. Don’t echo what others think or do just because you can, always stay true to yourself.
Today is a big day, I am starting my job as a Product Coordinator for Michael Kors Watches at Fossil! I would say this is my first day of work, but technically I have worked at Fossil for 8 months over the past year so my first day jitters are at a low (but apparent) murmur. I am very excited to finally have a desk! This might sound like the most absurd thing to be excited about, but when you have been an intern FIVE different times, and you have been shoved in every corner and random space, you would know how great it is to have a desk! Here are some of my favorite stylish desk inspirations for my first day of work! Hopefully one day soon I will have a home office or desk that is as style as these spaces!
I have been through some MAJOR changes in the past month. I graduated from college, moved across the country, and got engaged. All of these things are AMAZING, WONDERFUL, and such BLESSINGS, but a lot of change! Tomorrow I start my “big girl job” (as I have been calling it for weeks now) and I will no longer be an intern, but enter in to the workforce as prepared as I could ever be. Still the change can sometimes be overwhelming. I think for the next week, probably the next few weeks, I am going to focus on building the new. Building my future, building my life, and not worrying. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge worry-er (huge might even be an understatement) and that is an area I am trying so hard to focus on and let go of. I need to hold on to the change, build on change, not spend so much energy worrying about what might be, what might go wrong, or what I need to be doing. Life and change happen, and as long as I focus on building my life, riding the change like a wave instead of fighting against the current, I know everything will be alright, most definitely more than alright.
I’m guess what I’m really challenging myself (and maybe all of you, if you are also a fellow worry-er) to do is to stop worrying and enjoy the change (for a change- pun intended)!
Enjoy this week, everything will work out! xoxo
I recently was asked to contributed to a high school/college focused blog! I am so excited to share my decorating tips with new college students, because everyone deserves to live in a a stylish environment! The blog post will go live on the 26th but to get you in the dorm decor mood I thought I would share some of my favorite dorm-spirations..
