Niche

Hello everyone, I teamed up with Cotton On and Chicwish for this look! It's perfect for the warm but still cozy days in Spring. I paired my flared sweater with these frayed cutoff and my favorite espadrilles, each of these pieces are essentials which can be used over and over. One tip whenever I go shopping is, I ask myself: "Will I wear this 30 times or more?". If the answer is "yes", then I buy it. If the answer is "no", then I put it down, maybe pray about it (true), and see if in one week I am still completely in love with the item. Keep that in mind next time you pick up that cute midi dress. 

On another note, school is ending and it couldn't come any sooner. I am so ready for the Summer! My heart longs for adventure and sand in my hair! Any who's, I have been dreaming a lot lately. Like why is it that it feels like everyone is skyrocketing in their area, but I am not. Well that it because it seems that way, but it simply isn't. See, I am skyrocketing. I may not see it, but I am. There is a time and a season for everything. I am encouraged because my time will come, my time has come. Instead of moping, comparing, or being discouraged, I will stand firm, grown, and encourage. Everyone has their own niche. Niches are pretty cool, almost as cool as the word niche itself. My niche is blogging about my life and using this space to encourage others, but I also have a niche for compassion and caring for people, hence- nursing school. My niche(s) is completely different then your niche(s), WILD- isn't it? How cool is that! Embrace your growth. Embrace your weirdness. Embrace and take what you love to do and run with it. Hey, if nothing else, it propelled you into motion. Let me take you back to the good ole' Bill Nye the Science Guy days. Eh hem, Sir Isaac Newton's Law of Inertia: "An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion must stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force." See! You must embrace your drive and go, do, run. This is your time, even if it doesn't feel like it. Nothing will be able to stop you (unless by an unbalanced force, of course- but who knows what that even means, lol). Just go! This is something that I need to remind myself, because it is so easy to get caught up in stupid games comparing and overthinking about the future and things happening or not happening. Just embrace the journey, learn what you love and let that ignite a fire within you to steward whatever that is, to the best of your abilities. The rest will come with its time. Rest assured that there is nobody else in the world like you. I repeat, nobody else in the world that has those niches, those passions, talents, dreams, words, and drives. Find comfort, joy, and peace in that. 

xo,
