In Between

I spoke on a panel on yesterday at my alma mater, Emmanuel College, to seniors in the Communications internship class. This was my second year doing so, but this time was a bit different. Hearing the thoughtful questions asked and then answering them, I walked out of there a little more encouraged to keep going in my journey of what I want to do next.

Last week, I left my job to take a self-evaluation of what makes me happy and where I want to go with my career. Having been working for years now in fashion and retail, I realize how beneficial that experience has been for me. I quite literally have been taking a people study and learning a lot about the world around me. With this decision, I promised myself I wouldn’t sit around and do nothing. I’ve been taking advantage of every second I get to create, to go outside and meditate and to do the things I haven’t done in a while.

As I walk away from that and walk towards my next goal, I was inspired while on campus to remind myself of where I come from, to re-learn myself. These last 6 months I haven’t posted a blog and I haven’t even had the energy to write. I’ve had the biggest writer’s block of my life so far. Feeling uninspired, out of my element and anxious is a tough rut to be in. So finally, as I have a moment to step back, to look within, I feel clarity coming and even better, the words are coming back too. Sometimes we all have to abandon things we know to discover what we’re capable of.

Every year I have this ritual of heading to the nearest magazine section of Barnes and Noble's around the first or second week of August specifically to study the "September Issue" of every fashion magazine.
