I literally have this top in every single option that’s available. They are $10, light-weight, and very comfortable! I wear them with flops, heels, and even converse. I love that it can be dressed up or down and, again, it’s light-weight so I never get hot wearing it. I don’t think it gets better than a $10 top that offers that much comfort and versatility.
So, as much as I love talking about affordable (yet trendy) fashion options, I wanted to briefly chat with you about life. Well, mainly just your goals and dreams. Are you chasing your dreams? It’s sounds silly and cliché, but we really should take a moment to think about our life and what our dreams are. What would make your heart happy and your soul sing? Are you doing that and, if not, what are you waiting for? If we don’t have a real purpose behind the careers and dreams we pursue, we won’t truly find satisfaction in what we do. Those gifts and skills you have are not a coincidence; they are a gift from God. He has already given you the tools, but it’s up to you to pursue it. And, trust me, sometimes following that dream job or starting that business is a leap. No, let me rephrase that, it is ALWAYS be a leap. It will be tough, and challenging, and draining, and harder than you anticipate, but the good news is that the reward will trump all of that. We get one life, people, one short life.
If you have complete contentment and happiness in your career and in your life, then keep on with what you’re doing and thank God for that fulfillment. BUT if there is something that you have always dreamed of doing, maybe it’s a skill or talent that brings you so much joy or maybe it’s helping others or maybe even some wonderful idea that could bring ease to the life of others….go for it! If you have that itch, that urge, that little voice in the back of your head always pushing you…my friend, that shouldn’t be ignored. Pray about it and then pray some more. It takes a LOT of hard work, determination, creativity, and support to make our dreams work, but we all have that fire within us to make it happen. You are a kick-ass chick capable of doing hard things! Go get ’em, tiger!
