It’s Monday y’all, what’s the ONE thing you’re doing today to move you closer to your goal?
My great-grandmother used to buy herself rings, apparently because her husband never gave her a beautiful, real engagement ring. And that? That vibes with me. Just buying yourself something because you CAN. Loving yourself enough to wear it like a wedding band. I mean, I can't promise to know her exact motivations, but I like to imagine that she was a badass lady who lived her life with fierce happiness. And when I put on her rings in the mornings, I can feel it, too.
Being a single adult comes with all sorts of questions, weird looks, stale conversations and setups. But you know what? It's so liberating to feel so that you're living the right life for yourself. So: to all the fully grown humans out there who are living this non-typical life: we are allowed to be happy. We don't always need to be searching. We have the potential for such a full life if we just let ourselves feel whole 💛✨
To be honest, figuring out exactly what to say and how to word this took me well over a week. There are so many years of me figuring out who I was, what made me happy. And that's life, isn't it? We just stumble through and figure it out until we get into a groove 😉
Because I also know how important it is for you guys to understand everything behind why I post, Mejuri reached out to me to speak about a non-typical love story. At first I thought, NOPE, I don't have one! I'm single and happy! And then I realized there is so much more behind that story. So I accepted, and challenged myself to process what on earth I'd say. I'm still processing. It became such a beautiful opportunity to reflect on my entire identity in relationships and confirm that I'm in the right place. Every time I put on my grandmother's rings, or the jewellery I bought for myself, it's an affirmation. And that makes me so, so happy.

I’m being reminded, as I sit here at 4:30 am listing new items on Poshmark, that there was a week where I was with my kids and husband 24/7. Life felt so relaxed, my creativity grew again, I could be involved with everything I desired, I could check out thrift stores and not feel rushed, I could photograph and edit photos frequently... but today I’m staring at a 8-5 schedule for the next 5 days and a long list of things I still wasn’t able to complete at home and on my store....and the stress is creeping in.
I enjoy what I do as a full time job, but it doesn’t get me up at 4:30 am or staying up till midnight to work on it.
Somethings gotta change. What are your goals for quarter 4?
• So this LK Bennet piece has been sitting in my closet for the lonnggggessstt. I only had one previous offer on it and it was slightly low for what I wanted it for. I finally got an AMAZING offer on it right before PoshFest!!! This sale really validated that going to this event was where I should be. I know I have taken a social media hiatus, but I am so thankful to have met every one of you amazing souls. I can’t wait for PoshFest 2019!!!! Who will be attending? •
