A couple of weeks ago my sweet friend, Whitney Curtis of The Curtis Casa, blogged about things she’s afraid to tell her readers. This series began accidentally with a post by Jess Constable on her blog, Makeunder My Life, and countless other bloggers have now written their own missives about things they’re afraid to tell their readers.
Whitney wrote about being unsure of whether or not she and her husband have made the right decisions about where to live, what to do for a living, etc. Her post really inspired me, so I’ve decided to lay it all out on the line for y’all here. I know it’s not home décor-related, but it will allow me to share a bit of myself with you, my dear readers. You can read more about the Things I’m Afraid to Tell You movement here.
So, here it goes: I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing with my career. I mean it, no solid plans, just big dreams that I hope come to fruition. I graduated in May with my master’s in mass communication and that’s all I’ve got figured out so far. I’ve done a few project-based jobs, but those are temporary and nothing that really excited me. Thankfully, I’m surrounded by friends, family, and a great boyfriend who believe I should pursue anything that makes me happy. I get so worried about things I cannot control (money, whether someone likes my blog or not, etc.). My boyfriend often jokes that he doesn’t know how I sleep with all the things I find time to worry about.
For so long, I have planned everything out. I knew where I would go to college, what I would major in, which sorority I would join, and where I would go for graduate school.
Now, I’m unmoored, with no navigational guide to instruct me as to what to do now. I want this blog, and the corresponding interior design projects I write about, to take off and reach a wide audience. I want to create beautiful spaces that inspire others around the globe. I’m so thankful for you, my readers, who started reading this blog when it was merely a project for one of my classes and has now become a huge inspiration for the next chapter of my life.
So, now I’m just hoping for the best, hoping my dreams of becoming a successful blogger and interior designer will pan out. As Bon Jovi said, “I’m livin’ on a prayer.”
