A lot of things happened in a span of a week. I tried to sell my old clothes with an idea of an Instagram pop-up shop. Unfortunately, that idea got shot down real fast by my parents because they are royal worriers. I am not too bummed because it is a bit complicated figuring out the transportation and delivery service for my inventory. I’m gonna just take quick stop at a thrift shop and/or donate my clothes somewhere where they’re needed more probably.
Why did I decide to mention this story? Simple. It is easy to get caught up and consumed with something new. We all have experienced something that involves so much attention and excitement, you almost forget everything around you and who you are. We come from a generation where we enjoy instant gratification. Instagram likes, re- Tweets, and even views on Snapchat stories are tiny boosts of esteem. I even wrote in my journal to remind myself that my blog is meant for my own enjoyment along with helping others with advice and fashion inspiration. To entertain and enlighten is my cause. In other words, I guess I got too excited about my blog with social marketing. Furthermore, once I hear one person say I should sell my old clothes, I was hooked and suckered. Donating my clothes like I usually do, barely crossed my mind!
I am a busy gal. Most of us are busy. And if one of my readers finds their life not too busy, try to get out of your comfort zone and search for what makes you want to be busy. Follow your passion, something you’re good at. A job that doesn’t even feel like a job when you’re doing it because that’s how much you LOVE it. If you feel you can’t do it because you feel not up to the task or not good enough, I know exactly how you feel. You just need to take the risk, and maybe it’ll lead to your happiness. For example, once I found that one thing I loved, I took the opportunity. What was that? Tennis! I played tennis for most of my life so once I was given the opportunity to play on my community college’s tennis team, I agreed. That was the beginning of everything for me. One opportunity after the next, I took it and tried to perfect it. My rambling is to convey that overall, you need to do something that defines you. It shouldn’t make you lose yourself even more, that’s just a negative way to live a life. Be busy with things that are worth your time and character development, not what others think you should be doing.
Although, working all the time can cause stress in one’s life. Luckily, looking at your surroundings, eating good food, working out, and remaining involved in your community does wonders too. Live your best life, for all we know, we only got one!
