I can’t believe it’s been so long since I last posted anything. March flew by, ugh. It’s been a rough few weeks, well more like a rough few days mixed in here and there. Although, I have made some life decisions and am working on doing small things each day to help me prepare for that change! This post is really just to ensure any of you out there that there will be more to come!!
As of yesterday, I became re-obsessed with Pinterest. SO, if you feel like following me, head on over 🙂 It’s such a beautiful space to inspire and be inspired. So until the next post is up here, pins will be pinned here.
“To achieve great things you need a plan and not enough time.”
I was recently complaining to a friend of a friend that being in your early 20’s sucks. No one prepares you. No one warns you like they warn you about those miserable high school years and the awkward teenage phase. In your early 20’s, for the first time (usually) in your life, there is no plan. No class to attend. Nothing really. Just you and the universe that doesn’t really know you exist.
I was lucky though, that this friend of a friend didn’t buy what I was saying even though she too was 23. She told me I needed to listen to this Ted Talk about how 30 is not the new 20. And I was like yeah, yeah I’ll do it. And it took a couple weeks, but honestly, it resonated with me in a way that hasn’t happened in a long time. Your 20’s are not a time to waste. A time to shrug off and say I’ll figure things out when I’m 30. Your 20’s are when you develop as an adult. If you want to do something, if you want to change something about yourself, there is literally not a better time to do that than now, than what I had been referring to as my “miserable 20’s.”
Anyway, the talk is only 15 minutes and I SO recommend that you listen to it, especially if you are in your early 20’s. We all need a little push and a little empowerment.
Sometimes it’s scary how much Allie and I can be on the same page.
I woke up today feeling a little down too. Even more than that, I’ve been feeling so incredibly anxious and overwhelmed lately and I can’t figure out why. Of course there are things I don’t have figured out right now that I wish I did, but when it comes down to it, there’s nothing I really have to do. I just create these lists in my head of do this, do that — so much so that I feel like I’m constantly thinking about what I have to do next, never what I’m doing now.
It’s a new month though (happy February!) and that means another fresh slate to grab. January flew by (like all months have been doing lately) but I think maybe that’s because I haven’t been mindful of each day. One month of 2014 is gone, yes, but there’s still a lot of time for change and improvement! I made some resolutions for the new year and I looked over them again today. To be honest, I haven’t done a lot of them. It’s hard! I focus on so many other energies and things I can’t change that I forget to work on what I really can change. Maybe if I list a few out, it will help me feel more accountable for myself. So here it goes:
– Eat in moderation.
– Write something creative everyday.
-Obsess over my skin less.
– Watch less T.V.!!!
-Focus on getting fit rather than loosing weight.
Nothing monumental, but hopefully small changes that will add up to something in the long run. Here’s to a new month and embracing change.
