You nor I wouldn't have been able to tell me what my life would be like a year ago. We've all been there. We have this idea of what we'll be doing and where we'll be. And most times we're completely wrong or we get to point B in the most unorthodox way possible.
A little over 6 months ago, I wrote down a list of things I wanted to accomplish. I had no way or action plan of accomishing any of it. I just had a list.
I've completed about over half of it. And I did so because I just let it organically happen. I'm one to try to keep order and structure in my life, as a way to stay balanced. I just can't let things happen because in my opinion, that leaves room for a hot ass mess.
What I am beginning to realize is, I do not control time. I cannot control the order of things. We think we do, but that's the universe playing a joke on us. Last year I said I wanted to hire a photographer only to have that actually happen this Spring. And I found him on IG of all places.
I decided I didn't want to do wardrobe styling, only to now be doing creative styling & marketing for small brands. But that two didn't come to fruition until I found my photographer. I also didn't want to work a job I hated. I work two, because I want to continue to have a love affair with my creative passions.
I say all this to say, that at the end of the day, everything will be ALRIGHT. Your journey is specific to you and you only. Your happiness isn't contingent upon anyone else. I can honestly say life is good. I'm slowly but surely trusting the universe and letting go of this idea of time is scary. But the sky hasn't fallen and I'm still alright.
