Everything and Nothing

In over five years, I have.not.stopped. Literally, I haven't had time to do anything, except to keep going. I've always been an over achiever. Two/Three jobs, school, etc...I want to do everything, and I never say no to anything. Since I have been faced with a lot more down time lately, I have also been able to finally sit down, gather my thoughts and really think about a lot of things going on in my life. I sometimes wonder if this little break was necessary. I mean I never take a break on my own, so I almost wonder if this small (hopefully short hiatus) is the universe's way of telling me that I need to stop and take a look around.

New Jersey has been an on and off rainy/messy place these past few weeks which always means one thing when dealing with me. INTROSPECTIVE TIME. When I graduated college the first time, I was in a different place. I was pretty much a completely different human being (figuratively speaking of course). This time around I am much more motivated and certain that I know what I want. This time it's a little different because the ball is completely in my court. Before, it was get the degree, work in a hospital, done and done. This time around, I can choose different paths which will ultimately lead me somewhere I'm not sure I want to be. This is scary. More than one choice? Yikes. (Insert overwhelmed Maria face).

These past few weeks I have been so overcome with emotion, and an overload and lack of inspiration, honestly my mind is everywhere. I wake up some days and have nothing to say, and others I can't stop writing down ideas. As I slowly start to just let it all fall together the weights slowly ease off my shoulders, but I know that soon enough I will need to decide which path is the best for me. Just like everything else, I know I'll be fine, but it's the process that is the most interesting, it's all about how you get there, and then how badly you want it to work out. 

I know I have the drive, now if I could only find the perfect route. Then I'll be golden.


  1. First of all, you look gorgeous (as always). Second, deep breaths. :) I remember feeling exactly how you're feeling, and I promise it will all work out. Trust in the universe, let go a little, and see where you're led. (I can be bossy like this because I'm old and because we're sistas. ;)) Love you!


  2. Lack of inspiration means you should take a little adventure/mini vacation :D

  3. Your hair is to die for. So beautiful! And I love your glasses. Taking a break is something I wish I did after college - I started working full-time a week after graduation. Now it's hard enough just to get a short week of vacation. Enjoy and cherish this time of relaxation :)

  4. you look amazing :D And we all need a little break sometimes! ♥

  5. Breaks are always good! And I love that outfit (Minnetonkas look great in black!). :)

  6. I have a similarly hectic lifestyle, so you're lucky you're getting some down time... yay! PS absolutely love your jewelry in these shots!

  10. Sometimes you are already on the golden route, it's just need to be a little cleaned up to shine :) Perhaps a little time just for you will be good to straight things up on your mind. By the way, lovely shirt!
