Even If It Breaks Your Heart

Constantly, I am thinking about my future. The question of "What are you going to do" "What do you want to be" is playing on repeat inside of my head. 
Over and over I question my strengths, my talents, the things that really make me happy. 
When it comes down to it, do you really need to have a "title" to have really made it in life. 
Do you need to be known as a manager or a CEO in order to feel important?

In the life that I've imagined I have always been happy. I have always lived for myself and done exactly what makes me smile the most. 
I love smiling, it's my favorite. 

So when I sit down and really try to figure out what I want to do... why is it so difficult?
Why can't I put my finger on it?
I think it's because what I want to do doesn't exist. 
There is not  a specific title or profession that I fit exactly into.

...and this is where it gets exciting...

Let me introduce myself.
I'm Sabrina. 
Approaching my mid twenties.
Writer, reader, photographer. 
Northwest is my home but my heart longs to travel.
Everywhere and anywhere is where I want to go. 
I feel like life gets better and better every year. 
No matter how many heart aches.
No matter how many doubts. 
My dreams are coming together.
No, they aren't totally solid... in fact they are sort of like puzzle pieces at the moment. 
In time, it will all come together and I'll be able to glue it and hang it up on my wall. 
Because that's what cool people do... so I'm told. 

Until that time comes I am going to enjoy where I'm at. 
Enjoy the life I've been granted. 
Work hard
Save money
Love with everything I have. 
What do I have to lose? 
 Until that time comes...






Keep on dreamin' even if it breaks your heart.

I really relate to this, Sabrina. I feel like I'm following my dreams, even tho that dream isn't clearly defined. Its hard to explain that to people, and especially hard when I get this feeling like people think I just sit at home twiddling my thumbs all day. So not true. Writer, reader, photographer... Me too!

This is the story of my life at this current moment. Everyone asks me why I haven't started looking for a new job but I haven't because I don't have a clue what it is that I want to be. Where to go? What to do? Who to become? How does anyone ever figure this out?!

Lovely post and well said! And as an extra bonus...those shoes rock too :)

Just found your site through a friend and I love it! I completely relate to this post. I have a hard time putting a label to what I want to be exactly, but as long as I'm working on the things that I'm passionate about I feel like I'm moving in the right direction. Happy Friday!

Holly said...

I can relate. It's hard to put into words everything that I'm trying to achieve, but I think the biggest thing is happiness. Above all, if you're not happy, is everything else really worth it? I'm trying to slow down and focus on what's right in front of me. I think you've got the right mindset. And a rockin' outfit! Great post, lady :)

This is completely relatable! I am 29 and still have no idea what to do. I try to do things that make me happy.

I am just trying to bring the smiles to myself and others everyday!

this was a great post and puts words to what many of us ladies feel on the daily.

go girl!

Sabrina, I loved this! I am approaching my 30's and still haven't a clue. Sometimes I feel lost, but then again I am doing what makes me happy. I may not have everything in my life figured out, but what would be the fun if it already was figured out?!

Kate said...

Love this! And you! I couldn't agree with you more. We share the same perspective on life. And you are killing it that black dress and heels.

hey girl hey. I've got a husband AND a baby bean AND I still am dreaming about what it is that makes me "me." Do whatever it is that makes you feel alive. Power to the dreamers! xoxo

Welcome to the Trying Twenties, my dear. I'm happy to be in it with you. I feel the same when it comes to titles. I mean, I guess it would be nice to have a career on lock, but you know what I kind of did.. and as you read in Ashley's post, I gave it up! Because I decided that right now, at this age, I'd rather be living my life thru traveling, and experiencing new places and new people. I still do intend on working hard along the way, but I'm not going to give into the idea that in order to be successful or live life accordingly, I need to stress over having some official title. Or finding a husband. Or settling down in one place. Those things will all come in due time!

Good for you for dancing to the beat of your own drum, and not letting the pressure of titles weigh you down. And for really thinking about what it is you want to do and not just rushing into things. I think too many people do that, and then wind up doing things they don't love! By the way. I think you should be a professional rapper. Sooooo when you do decide to pick a title.... I say THAT ONE.

Ok. Gosh. My comments to you are always so long. I'm sorry!

Gentri said...

Oh my goodness... I am feeling this exact same way right now! And I love Punky's comment. She's so right. Here's to figuring out life- one adventure at a time. This is why we should live near each other... or travel together! That'd be amazing!

MacKensie said...

This is EXACTLY how I feel too. Well put, my friend. Your blog always makes me smile. Love this outfit.
