Hey for lifer's, what a wild couple weeks it has been! Never had I imagined things in my life would take certain twists and detours, in all the best ways. As time grows on and I get older - I feel like I am gathering so much knowledge while also simultaneously feeling like I might not know much at all. That's just what your twenties is about. I'm only this year starting to accept that life is just on the job training, there is no right way to do this. Sometimes your twenties look like having your life perfect one week in all the best ways - where you find the energy and time to fit everything all the way from the gym and self-care to your studies and work. To the next week everything feels like it is falling apart. Your favorite jeans feel a little bit snugger; your sleep schedule is off and you're too busy to spend the time you want with the people you love most. For the young women out there don't panic when these days start to come like I did. Let's be honest, we all don't have it tied all together with a cute little creme silk bow, even if it may seem like it from the outside looking in. In just these past couple of days I have disliked all the fall inventory I had previously picked out, had shipments not arrive, had to lay some difficult boundaries, and missed out on quite a chunk of my regular gym time. BUT in that same breath I have also traveled so much, met new friends, caught up with old friends, and most importantly let myself live. After rearranging my mindset, I was fortunate at the end of the day. It made me even more grateful when all my winter inventory fits my vision perfectly, because I have a running business. Or when I touched that gym equipment again, because I have a healthy enough body to do so. As corny as it may sound life is always going to happen to you, it is the way you adjust yourself to it that matters. Gratitude and mindset are everything and pertinent in these years. So instead of keeping your eyes focused on all the storms, figure out how to dance with them.
