Keep living.

You ever hear of the term "5-year plan" or "10-year plan?"  Well, I'm the queen of making plans.  Goals, guidelines, plans, lists, deadlines... I seem to always have them for every aspect of my life.  While it's good to have plans and goals, sometimes getting wrapped up in "following the plan" can cause a lot of stress, and could also close your mind to other possible opportunities that can equally give you experience for growth, even if it's in a field you never once considered working.

There's a phrase that goes something like, "If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans."  Although I've heard this a million times before, I still somehow make an attempt to map out basically my whole life!  I'll state that I'll be doing this by this age, or living there by that month, but I'm realizing that everything happens for a reason, and when it's time for me to be here or there, that's where I'll be.

Half of my heart is pulsing to the beat of New York City, but the other half of my heart is still home.  I want to go back to school, but now may not be the right time.  My point is, even if my life seems like a big ? right now, I have to keep living.  I may not be at the place I thought I'd be almost a year post graduating college, but as long as I keep living with a purpose, I truly believe I will get there someday.

As for some good news, I'll be working on some great music projects (that I was fortunately asked to be a part of), and will fill you guys in on it hopefully soon!  

Remember guys, everyone dies, but not everyone lives!  Keep living!

Hey guys!  Do you see my summer glow?  I've been getting my sun on as much as possible.  The weather here has been beautiful (with the occasional random thunderstorms usually once every week lol), but besides that I am just enjoying summertime!  Can you believe it's already July?  Time is flying right past me!

I styled my hair in an afro by putting my hair in chunky two-strand twists left in overnight and picking
my hair out the next day.
Wearing a top from T.J. Maxx, Topshop skirt, vintage Art Deco piece circa 1970's London via my BFF Sasha, Rachel Roy gold chain heels, and my nail color is "Lickety-Split Lime" by Sally Hansen.
I am obsessing over this nail color.  I've been wearing it non-stop for 2 weeks straight!

I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July weekend, mine was low-key, but enjoyable nonetheless!

Have a great rest of the week!
