on a serious note

  So, a little bit about life lately. As most of you probably know, we moved in January, I was jobless for awhile, we traveled, I got a job, we've made new friends and visited with longtime friends, celebrated an anniversary, and the list goes on. We all have our struggles, I think we've established this before on this blog. This isn't a place where we like to pretend we have it all together. Let me catch you up on my recent conflict and maybe some of you feel the same at this moment or have felt this before. Maybe some of you older and wiser folk can help a sista out! 
  Does there ever come a point in our lives when we feel like we've arrived, like we've finally made it? Or does the cycle just continue over and over. Now, I know that part of that feeling is the pressure and the pretty picture that's painted from society about what life is about and what the meaning of success truly is. I get that. But I have that constant feeling that I'm waiting to reach a certain point, not even knowing what that really looks like. Is this confusion, ambition, discontentment? Is anyone with me on this? Maybe I'm just nuts! This could be entirely possible, by the way.
  In other news, I joined a running class, our cat got neutered, I got this top for $5, and I've discovered a great love for peppermint tea.

  1. First I love that shirt!! Second, I don't think there is a point in life where we've arrived. I think we are on a life long journey. So we have to learn to grin and bear it, and make the most of it :)

  2. I don't know if this helps, but would you really WANT to get to a point where you feel totally content, like there's nowhere else to go? Then you'd just be coasting the rest of your life and that would be boring. Don't get me wrong, it's nice to have some just chill, comfortable spells, but eventually you get restless and go to law school. Oh wait, that's just crazy people like me.

  3. Great post, I'm on a peppermint tea kick too!
    As for wanting more, I think it's human nature. As long as you can enjoy the present moment you are in. Having high hopes for the future can be a good thing! Hope that helps <3

  4. Love the way your booties and cardigans match! Great find in that top. And cardigans and peppermint tea are always great for existential crises. Keep on trucking and chase the things that make you happy and fulfill you. Hang in there!
