Blooming at Dusk

Monday, November 17, 2014 / , , ,

There is one thing that I always forget: I have the rest of my life ahead of me. I know I am just making an assumption, but I feel that most of us may have this same problem. 

Now, I don't know if this means anything to you, but I am a Capricorn. Translation: a workaholic. I am constantly working on something. Whether I am actually at work, either being Free People or, or I am working on my blog, or at a photoshoot; I am constantly in motion. Sometimes it is hard for me to switch out of work mode and into relax mode, but I think I am getting better at. Does anyone else have this problem?

So something we need to remember: we have the rest of our lives ahead of us. No matter what age you are, you are never too old or too young to do anything that inspires you. I am only nineteen, but I am completely in love with my life. I know that sometimes I forget that. Sometimes I feel that I am behind in life, or not as good or successful as I should be. I compare myself to those that have been doing what I'm doing for longer and then realize, I am right where I need to be. I still have time to grow, as does everybody. 

A huge inspiration for me are my parents. They both realized later on in their life that they wanted more for themselves. My mother went back to college as an adult and left the food industry to become a teacher and absolutely loves what she is doing. She even went back years later to complete her Masters program. My dad a few years ago went back to college, too. He graduated in May with his degree in interior design. He has now moved to New York not even a month ago in pursuit of something new. Both of my parents have taught me to follow my dreams and are proof that no matter how old you are, you can still accomplish something new. You can still pursue your dreams. 

They remind me that I have time to accomplish my goals. I have been working so hard to accomplish them all now, that I haven't had the time to really appreciate and enjoy each goal I have reached. Just because all of your dreams don't come true the minute you start working for them, doesn't mean that they won't eventually. So now, while I have the chance, I am going to appreciate what I have accomplished and look forward to what I will accomplish in the future.

Your blog rules, you look PHENOMENAL, and your BF is an extremely fortunate, lucky, blessed man ���� ...

Well anyways keep this all up, you're incredibly unique and have far more than what it takes.☺️

  9. That's really cool your parents did that! Sometimes it's hard to step out of your comfort zone in hopes to reach your goals. Blogging is one of them! It takes so much time, but fulfilling to have in the end. Your blog is really great and love your photos! Keep it up! -Stacey Ann Loves
