I dare you!

Aside from my fashion sense, I’d say I’m a pretty cautious, play-by-the-rules type of person. I like to arrive early, I rarely stray from my “usual” at more restaurants than I’d care to admit, and I always have a plan. It’s my comfort zone, we all have one!

I’ve noticed, though, a little bit of a shift. As I’m starting to feel more and more in control of my own life, without my parents or school to guide me along, I’ve begun to make bolder, more daring choices. I decided to take a job that was somewhat outside of my degree field, halfway across the country, and live  hundreds of miles from J while he finishes school and starts his own career. All of this has been scary and hard, but I have a clear picture in my head of what I want my life to be like and I get closer every day.

Now that I’ve started my career and am settling in to life here, I’m trying to keep that mindset going and not get stuck making “comfortable” choices. It really helps to see daring choices being made all around me! One of my best friends is an amazing artist and designer, and is making her own dreams happen (follow her here & find her work here). She’s also co-launching a digital magazine (which I will be a contributor for!) with another friend of ours, who is also an amazing graphic designer (follow her here). So watch for that in the future, and keep pushing yourself!
