This is the outfit I wore in Philly with my girls!!  I got this shirt two weeks ago and let me tell you I LOVE IT.  It’s one of those pieces you just throw on and you look great.  The lace detail, the peplum, the pleats on the front, and the v-neck tie make it so much more than just a tank top.  But it is!  It’s so easy and so fricken cute.

I am obsessssseeeedddd with the two tone/color block denim trend.  The ones I’m wearing are not online but I will link a bunch down below.  They’re just so fun and different and bring somewhat of a retro vibe to your look!

 

Enough about clothes.  Let’s talk about life.  Since I left school last winter, I have thought every single day about my future.  At first it was things like “I’m such a failure,” “I can’t believe I’ve blown my chances for Med school,” “What the hell am I gonna do now?” “Where do I begin?”

It took me a long time to get over the fact that I was not going to go to Med school.  My whole entire life was leading up to applying for and getting accepted into Medical school.  All I had ever wanted was to become a doctor.  But my body was physically not allowing me to even get out of bed let alone go to class.  My GPA was no where near where it needed to be and it would take a miracle for me to bring it back up.  (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you should read this.)

I slowly but surely began to realize that God was calling me to do something else.  My parents had been telling me my whole life to do this, and my mother brought it up again after I left school.  And now, it kind of seems like a no-brainer.  So…

I’m going to nursing school!!!!!!

I’m so excited about my decision.  Nursing is what I was put on this earth to do.  I adore children.  I understand them, and I know how to deal with them.  (I’m basically a professional mom rn with all the nannying I do.)  I want nothing more than to comfort a child and their family in the darkest times of their lives.  I want to hold their hearts in my hands and help them smile when it seems impossible to do so.  Being a pediatric nurse is what I am supposed to do, and I couldn’t be more sure about it.

I am so happy with my life right now.  This is the first time in I don’t know how long that I feel confident and SURE of myself and who I am.  I don’t want to change too much, so I’ve decided to continue living at home, working part time, and attending classes at my community college.

I’m just giddy with excitement.  I can’t wait for classes to start 🙂

Life will get better.  Your happiness awaits you.

Here’s to loving yourself and staying true to who you are.

exes and oh’s, my lovelies

P.s.  I have been doing some MAJOR decluttering…. my closet is now 1/4 of what it used to be, and I want YOU to take my clothes!!  Check out my Poshmark 🙂 Almost all of these clothes are in perfect condition, I just don’t want them anymore because I’m trying to let go of a lot of things in my life!  Go shop my closet!!!
