Okay, folks, so here's the deal: A few weeks ago, I was sitting at work, and I started wondering about where my life was headed.I thought about some of the things I've done in the last few years, and realized that if I want to find myself "living the dream" in five or ten years, I should probably think more specifically about what those dreams and goals are, and figure out ways to meet them.
You see, lately I've been having these weird moments where I'm standing in front of the shampoo aisle at the store without a clue of what to buy. My mind goes blank. I am lost without a hair care guru to guide me. Most people have a staple shampoo brand that they always buy, right? Whether the choice is motivated by price or quality, we are creatures of habit.
And this may seem so insignificant to some of you, but it's representative.
Because there have also been moments, more significant moments, where I've been speechless when the time came to express my opinion, moments when I've opted out of traveling to beautiful countries or going to parties with friends, or hidden under old clothes because, at my very core, I was unsure of who I really was.
Luckily, graduating and cycling up the West coast were such striking events in my life, that I've finally found the gumption and much-needed determination to change. I won't live this way anymore.
So it was quite timely that, while perusing the blog-o-sphere, I ended up finding this awesome jewelry company, JessLC (remember, I got a necklace made by her for my birthday?), and her philosophy about 'designing life with intention' which, of course, struck a cord in me.
So instead of going through some sort of "make-over" event to transition out of college into the big, bad, real world, I've decided to follow in the footsteps of Jess. It is all about going beneath all of the unneeded stuff, and uncovering your true self.
That's the philosophy.
