I’m going to be completely honest: I’ve delayed writing this post for the past two weeks, and it’s taken me around an hour of staring blankly at my computer screen to actually start typing something. This hasn’t been due to a lack of inspiration (trust me, I’ve come up with at least a dozen ways of writing this post). Rather, it’s because none of those ideas have been right. None of them felt like they would be the perfect way to introduce myself and this blog.
And that, I guess, is a better introduction to who I am than any generic biography I could spit out.
Right now, I’m at a point in my life where it feels like everything I do is going to have some sort of critical impact on my future – whether it’s what classes I choose to take, what professional contacts I have, or what cereal I buy at the grocery store. I’ll be turning 21 on Tuesday, which is just four days away, and it’s hard not to think that I’m reaching the Point of No Return.
From here on out, there’s no more being indecisive about my future, no more fooling around when it comes to jobs, no more procrastinating until the “right time.” I will officially be An Adult™, and every waking moment will be spent suffering under the pressures of my new-found responsibilities, as well as the past choices I’ve made that can never, ever be altered.
At least, that’s what I’ve been told. But I know that it couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Yes, I’m at a stage in my life when I do need to consider my future. It’s good to have a plan and work towards it, but it’s also important to realize that this plan can and will change. Let’s face it: nothing is certain, and realistically, the plans I have for my future are going to keep evolving on an almost daily basis. Who knows – this blog may not even be relevant to my life a year from now, as my career could go in an entirely different direction.
For the time being, though, I’m pursuing my current dream: being a wedding consultant.
Weddings are something that I’ve always been passionate about, and with my knack for design and organization, it feels like the perfect career for me. I’ve been working in bridal for a year already, and it’s been an incredible experience with that sense of rightness I searched for when writing this post. So, as of now, that’s my goal!
This blog will follow my journey as I chase this dream, as well as my adventures in so-called “adulthood.” What’s in it for you? Inspiration, wedding and bridal design tips, and an inside look at the wedding industry as I find my way through it! (There will probably be food, too. Lots of food.)
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon!
