Now what?

Ah, the golden question. From uncles, brothers, sisters, friends, dogs, the whole lot is wanting to know what my plans are and all I can say is, join the club.

As of August 5th, I officially quit my job at Target. For those of you who didn't know, I was a retail manager there. Yes, you heard right. Retail Management. Easily one of the hardest jobs I could have endured fresh out of college. Even so, being the true millennial that I am, my focus isn't on how much I can make, but rather how much I can learn.  Stupid? Perhaps. For now, I'm focusing on today and what this new journey has in store for me. But if I'm being completely honest, I have no flipping clue what to expect. None. Which is both terrifying and exciting at the same time. All I know for sure is I'm going to continue blogging and playing dress-up for as long as I can.

In all seriousness, I'm fortunate enough to have this opportunity to indulge in my naive, young ways and explore my options. While I have no idea where I'll end up, I know for certain I won’t stop moving. I don't want to get stuck in a job that pays well, but offers nothing more than swollen feet and long, mundane work days. I want more from this life and I know the only way to get anything out of it is to take risks, make difficult choices, go against the grain and follow God's voice - where ever that may lead. My goal during this new adventure is to be still and listen, and only partake in things I feel a true passion for. I refuse to live my life on repeat and sacrifice anymore precious time doing things that only impact my wallet. Now, I can only pray for patience and endurance while I discover my next move...Miami perhaps?

In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy this hiatus and fill my time with delicious food, good people, and some jazzy tunes.
