I was lucky enough to go back to California for 4th of July weekend. The weather was absolutely perfect and it was so nice catching up with family and friends, and having a relaxing weekend full or drinking, good times, and sunshine.
I’m in New York this week, and I leave for Provence on Saturday! However, before that, I have my friend Kristine’s wedding on Friday which I absolutely cannot wait for. I bought this dress from Boohoo to wear to the wedding. (It comes in tomorrow, so fingers crossed!)
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve been doing some pretty exciting things lately. However, with all of these great opportunities comes an inevitable sense of hesitation.
Let’s face it, it can be a bit daunting to really put yourself out there.
I’m not going to lie, there will always be that annoying voice in the back of my head, the one that nags at me and tells me to be apprehensive out of fear of failure or rejection. However, I can’t help but think of the Anaïs Nin quote, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
Any kind of growth, whether personal, professional, or artistic, requires some kind of calculated risk. It’s up to you to decide if you want to remain in the same place, or go out on a limb, make yourself vulnerable, and ultimately transform into something more beautiful.
I have decided that I am going to choose the second one. That I am ready to blossom.
