Don’t follow me I’m lost too. Life is about exploring, trying new things, and falling in love with new places and new souls. Life isn’t meant to be easy or consistent and you will never really have it “all figured out.” I’ve recently come to terms with that and have for once in my life been okay with uncertainty. Moving to New York was just that… a big risk with no security or logic, just a gut feeling and the desire to explore and push myself to see just how much I can accomplish. And I’ve got to say, it’s the best decision I’ve ever made in my life thus far.
I’ve always been the girl that had it all figured out. In middle school I already knew what University I wanted to go to, what classes I wanted to take, and what internships I wanted to have. Then as I started growing up life really started pushing back at me. Challenging my expectations and teaching me to let go and that it’s okay to just live once in a while. It’s not easy to truly live a life of freedom because it’s not the way we’re raised and certainly not the life society prepares us for. Living a life of freedom is often associated with being “reckless” and “young” and “stupid,” but that’s not necessarily true. I think it’s absolutely okay to let go, listen to your gut, and live a life that doesn’t fit in the circle of “normal.”
One thing I’ve always believed in and strongly listened to my whole life is my instinct and my gut. My gut told me to stop studying for the LSAT senior year of college, forget about going to law school because it wasn’t truly going to make me happy, and to pursue my dream of moving to NYC and starting my own career. When I was scared and completely questioned everything I was doing my instinct would kick in and always urge me that it would eventually all be okay. It would all make sense later on in life and that making this crucial but scary step in my life would be beyond worth it.
So what this jacket should really say is “Follow Me Even Though I’m Lost Too” because I don’t know exactly where I’m going or what I’m going to do next but that’s okay. I know that I’m building my dream career each and every single day, taking on every opportunity that comes my way, and simply living life. Ten years from now I want to be living the life I had always dreamt of when I was younger… a life of risks, memories, experiences, hardships and most importantly, accomplishments. So it’s okay if you feel lost sometimes because that’s the beauty of life and it means you have finally gained the power to control your mind and truly “let go.” The next step will be a complete surprise and you just have to take it for what it is and continue growing and experiencing. There’s just so much out there to see so live a life of risks and not “what ifs”!

“I want no ordinary lover, I want a fucking storm. I want sleepless nights and endless conversations at 4am. I want passion, I want madness. I want someone who’s able to make my whole body shiver from a distance and also pull me close to make sense of all my bones”
