A twenty-something girl's take on the world.

Too old to know better & too young to give a damn.

Don’t live an empty life.

There is a yes at the end of every tunnel of no.

11355617_10153948885173747_348173416_nThree posts, three days in a row… Who am I? This is rare and unheard of, but I’m rolling with it.

You know, I’ve been pretty hard on myself lately… I’m turning 23 next week and I sit here with no real job. To me, that’s a little disheartening. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t sit on my rear all day and fiddle my thumbs… I’m a full time student, I work part time as a freelancer and I do occasional promotional events, but I’m just not content. I need more, I want more.

Well, while I was feeling pretty low yesterday, the strangest thing happened to me. I was looking for some inspiration and I read a quote by Rumi… “Respond to every call that excites your spirit.” I don’t know what made me do it, but I decided to apply to a few locally based modeling and promotion companies. I figure what the hell, what’s it gonna hurt? So, I sent them a few pictures and my information. To my surprise, I heard back almost instantly from both companies.

Obviously, I realize this doesn’t make me a Victoria Secret angel (duh), but it does goes to show that you shouldn’t give up on anything you want. Pursue whatever it is that excites your soul and anything that genuinely makes you happy.

You only have this one precious, short life to live, so don’t look back in 20 years and have regrets. Don’t live an empty life. Don’t let someone tell you “no” or “you can’t” because on the contrary, you can. You can do anything you put your mind and heart into. Stick with it, be persistent, keep going. Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try, right?

I don’t know who says it, but it’s like that quote goes… “Turn your cants into cans and your dreams into plans.” The epitome of it all… Try and try again.

If I can give you any ounce of motivation, never take no for an answer.
