I'm guilty of not always taking my own advice…..and lately I've been beating myself up about not having my life figured out the way I thought I would at this point……but I saw this quote the other day and it made me say, hey, who the hell cares if your life is "figured out"…..

"You do not have to have life figured out. You are life. Watch, as life develops and reinvents everyday. Discover, the beauty of living. Life never stops growing, look closely, this moment always greets us- offering the opportunity to continue blossoming into our true essence."

……so…... what I've "figured out" is that…. I'm the girl who laughs so hard that I almost fall off of a dock…..I'm the mom who let's her child jump in every single mud puddle he sees……. I'm the friend who is just such a complete mess that you can't help but take her in and one day I'll do the exact same for you……I'm the daughter who just wants acceptance….. and I'm the woman waiting for the right man to come along to see me for exactly all that I am and love me in spite of it……. and everything else I will figure out along the way…….

Ps….. I'm also the girl who walks into her closet and proclaims "I have nothing to wear"……then grabs a vintage men's blazer and wears it as a dress to a birthday dinner…… #nopantsparty
