Lost


Just wanted to share a little bit of motivation, as I sometimes wish to do. I've mentioned a few times here and there- I have an ultimate goal to not just write about clothes or nail polish- but a beautiful life. And when I say "a beautiful life," I don't mean my own. I mean all of us. For me, the creation of my "beautiful life" has been finding my passion. The fulfillment I get through writing and communicating with readers has been wonderful. I don't make money off of this blog, nor do I expect to any time soon. But I do it anyways because with each post- my confidence in myself strengthens. With each comment, the reward grows. I found myself in my quarter-life crisis thinking a lot of W's. Who am I? What am I doing? WHY? And when it came right down to it, a W was the answer- writing.

But, when I sit back and evaluate the past few months [since the birth of this humble web abode], it is so clear how much closer to ME I am. [Cheesy...right?] I am writing, I am enjoying it, and people are actually reading. I mean, sorry to get all queso-dip around here, but I want you to know so that it can happen to you [if it hasn't already]. Like I said, this isn't my job- which is why a lot of times I go days without visiting you here. But writing gives me a sense of completion in my life, and that is a good thing to have. I want you to have that same feeling! Are you all going to write blogs? Well, probably not. [but if you DO, send me the linky link!!] Your passion is probably different than mine. But I want each person reading this to sit down and think and find what they love. WHAT do you love so much you get lost in it and disconnect from reality and grow personally?? Work on that. And I don't mean quit your job and abandon reality entirely, but embrace your passions and focus on them as often as possible. Because within your passion, you'll find yourself- and as dorky as it is, YOU are the greatest person you'll ever meet.

And as far as I'm concerned, life is a little too short to spend it absorbed with things we hate.

  1. I think your motivation is great and inspiring! My parents have always encouraged my brother and me to pursue things that we love and I think I have really found that in dance and the ukulele. Because I don't really have the oppertunity to dance every single day, my obsession with the ukulele has really grown since I started this summer. I wake up in the night dreaming about songs or unable to get one out of my head. There is a new Kala that I want and last night I dreamt about turning it over and over in my hands. It's such an amazing feeling to care so deeply about something you don't HAVE to do.
