Lately, I have been doing some deep thinking.
The type of thinking that can cause internal strife and pain.
I find myself in a phase in life where I am transitioning into really being an adult and getting slapped in the face left and right with friends moving out of their parents homes, getting married and even having children!
Here I am, single with a very evident shopping addiction; seems like my life is at a standstill.
Yes, I have a great job (not in the fashion industry), I take care of myself and am independent but there's still something missing. Although I am satisfied with my job because I see growth and opportunity I'm still not doing what I absolutely LOVE which is and has always been fashion.
For the past few months, I have been consistently dreaming of being pregnant (no, I am not) and since this recurring dream seems so strange I finally looked up the meaning of it and the dream I've been having sums up how I've been feeling.
Dreaming of pregnancy, at it's core, means creativity. Going hand in hand with people who have disowned dreams (enter myself here) and pursued safer options (yes and yes). I don't see this recurring dream as a coincidence, rather I see it as fate or some sort of higher power trying to awaken my true desires of being in the fashion industry. My dream is to one day work in an editorial environment or professionally style.
Yes, I let out a lot of my creativity and passion for fashion here on my blog but I think it's time for me to take a leap of faith and not be so "safe." Not saying I'm quitting my job tomorrow (still gotta pay those bills) and becoming a full-time fashion blogger but I need to start taking bigger and bolder steps towards a career in fashion.
Thanks so much for reading!
