Over the holidays I had some time to think about the direction of my life and started to lay out a plan of what I wanted to accomplish and where I want to go. I don't know if it is just me, but it sure isn't easy to make a decision like that. Sometimes, well a lot of the time, I feel like there are so many things I want to do and choosing just one path never seems to satisfy me or make me feel whole. I have put a lot of pressure on myself to choose a career that I believed would make my parents and family proud rather than one that would make me happy. I have come to realize that, that is just a silly idea I was carrying. In reality, parents are always going to want the best for their children and hope that they will succeed and go on do to great things. My parents are great because they have put up with my endless decision weighing and changing of directions. My dad has drilled a philosophy into my mind that as long as I am working hard towards a goal, that is all that matters. Life will happen along the way, you will discover new things about yourself and about the world, you will gain new skills and ambitions and all of these things might just happen to change the direction of your dreams and goals. The good news is that there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! The important part is that you are always working towards and for something, otherwise we become stagnant.
Entering into this new year I knew that I had some very intentional goals that I wanted to work on in order to better change my life. I will be talking more about these later on this week, but basically they have to do with being extremely intentional and disciplined with my time, finances and faith. I saw this great instagram post the other day and it completely embodied what I have been struggling with for the past few years, "Discipline is just choosing between what you want now and what you want most".
So today's post isn't going to be a fashion post but instead, I am going to show some photos from my holiday which was spent with family! I am bringing Confetti and Glimmer into the new year surrounded and built upon the same foundations which I am made of. Love, family, support, creativity, fun, beauty, truth and laughter.
