I've been off work because of snow the past two days, and now I'm finding myself awake before 10 on a Friday morning and it feels good. I made a resume yesterday and applied for two "big girl" jobs, just to see what happens.
All I can think about lately is the quote from that toothpaste commercial that says "Life opens up when you do", which is so true. Starting my blog has been one of the best decisions I've ever made for myself. First, it led me to my writing position with College Fashion, but it's also given me the confidence, inspiration, and drive to continue applying for other writing positions and jobs with other websites and companies. Plus, it's been so amazing to be able to just be creative again. As happy as I am with my degree, and as much as I adored studying Sociology, I do wish that I could go back and pursue a more creative and artistic field. I have no regrets, though, and at this point I'm just trying to outweigh my anxieties for the future with excitement.
Spring is a time of renewal, rebirth, and growth. As the ground begins to thaw and the flowers begin to bloom, I will begin to challenge myself and open my heart to new possibilities. I want to grow, I want to thrive, and I want to blossom.
Below are some quotes that have inspired me lately, and that I hope you'll love as much as I do! Happy Spring, everyone!
