So this post is going to be a little serious...I know things are usually lighthearted and there will no doubt be some of that mingled within the seriousness so don't worry ;).
Well last week I was sitting in my interior design principles class when I had this overwhelming feeling of, 'what the crap are you doing here? Don't you know interior design will always come second to fashion?' To be honest I had a mini break down, I had to leave class to be able to call my hubs and have a mini pity party/cry sesh. I thought I was doing the right thing, living in Utah there is little to no fashion industry unless I want to be a manager of a clothing store (blick), I have always loved putting rooms together so interior design seemed like a great option then WHAME-O all this happens. As of right now I am just feeling a little lost. Don't get me wrong I am not a quitter I will finish this semester and probably give it another before I make a final decision,  but I also don't want to waste my time ;) I just want to know right now what I am suppose to do with my life ;). If anyone of you have a crystal ball or ESP that would so great right now ;). This whole life thing can be really puzzling, and lets not forget the added stress of being 26 thinking your eggs are drying up and that you better figure out your place before baby time. Maybe I am just thinking too much about things...Maybe I just need to let things flow...I mean I don't need to figure out the mysteries of the world by the end of the week right? Ahh~~~~ well I foresee a lot of prayer and soul searching in my immediate future. I just want to find purpose for my life...And to not feel like I am just floating through it (even though my inner hippie thinks that would be a pretty sweet gig)!
Ok gross now I am making myself sick ;) thanks for letting me blog vomit all over you guys I feel tenfold better already! Love, love friends.

  1. Hope your feeling okay honey. I know the stupid feeling, wish I knew exactly what was going to happen with my life. A little insight would be good.

    You look fab as always.

  2. I know the feeling! I'm going through it too. It's hard to be in your mid-twenties and trying figure out exactly what you're supposed to be doing. You'll figure it out, I'm a true believer that "what's meant to be will be!"

  3. Totally been there. Still there most days, actually. I also wanted a career in fashion but settled for a degree in journalism since, well, like you said, there's not really a "fashion industry" in this state. Let's go in to business together! ;)

  4. I think at my last semester, I realize that I didnt want to do graphic design but more of web design..although both were similar in being creative, I wish I knew what I wanted to do. What you are going through is so very normal!!! I think you will figure out what is it that you want to do and everything will be ok :)

  5. Can I just say that I am currently going through exactly the same thing? I finished college, worked for a year in that career, then I decided it was time to try something new. Now I am dealing with the feeling that my four years of college was a waste. I was the first one in my family to go to college and I worry that I look silly for spending all that time and hard work in school and then just changing my mind in the end. The key really is prayer. After LOTS and LOTS of prayer I really felt like I had a clear idea of what God wanted for me. And once you feel that, it makes your decision about a million times easier. God knows the desires of your heart, in fact he likely put them there when he made you. Chin up, and prayers will be sent your way for sure :)

  6. it can be stressful not knowing what you want to do with your life at this point(26) but everyone is different, some people know since they're able to talk and some even change their paths(career)later on in their life(40s,50s)Don't feel bad Virginia, you'll soon figure it out and before you know it this post will soon be forgotten. hang in there. xo

  7. First of all, love your pants. Secondly, I feel your pain. Advertising is my love but would require that I live in LA, Chicago, or NY. With a husband in tow, it's not always easy to pick up and go. I hope you feel better soon!

  8. First of all, you look really cute. Secondly, I can understand not knowing what to do with your life. You know what you gotta do (pray...lol) but I am sure you are doing that and trying to figure that all out.

  9. I'm all for prayer, fasting, temple attendence, etc. when it comes to issues like this (definitely doing all of this myself right now with big decisions on the horizon) and I've found that sometimes you just have to make a decision and say, "Heavenly Father, here's what I'm going to do. If it's not your will, stop me." And then move on. He let's us make mistakes and learn and grow so sometimes the answers dont come and we have to act.

  10. Usually writing out your concerns really helps when you're feeling lost. Best of luck! No matter what you end up doing just make sure you like it.

  12. Oh girle!!! Sorry you are going through a little rough patch right now. :( Life can get complicated and hard at times. I was in your position once upon a time. I had no idea what to do with myself. I hated school but I knew I needed to do something. So I just made a decision and it just worked out. Heavenly Father loves you and wants you to be happy. If you feel like it's time for baby then do it. School and career can wait. We are all here for ya Morgan.

  15. That's so frustrating! I struggled with no fashion school in Utah either. It's hard when that's what you really love! Good luck figuring things out!

  16. Praying for ya, Morgan. In God's time you'll figure out what you're supposed to do and where to go. Just be patient right now. Seems like He's trying to open up another door for you :)

  18. This is why I got that text! Oh girl! Chin up something will come your way!!

  19. I know exactly what you should do.......come to girls camp with me next week ;)
    Just kidding, unfortunately there are no easy answers on this one, but my advice is this, Trust yourself and Trust the Lord. You will figure it out, and don't forget that you have So much life ahead of you, so so much and some will be boring, some will be hard but most of it will be spectacular. I promise.

  21. The great thing about careers today is you are not stuck with ONE for life. People chop and change all the time. The other fabulous thing is Fashion and interior design are so complementary. It will all work out, just keep an open mind.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Do you mean that interior design will always be second to fashion in your eyes, or in the world? If it's yours eyes, that is completely understandable! If you think the world feels that way, you're wrong!

    And while it may not make you feel better, you're already CLOSER to doing what you love than the average person. You love fashion, and you run a very successful fashion blog. You may not be in your dream career right now, but you've got your fingers in the right buckets. That's what I love about blogs - it gives you a chance to connect with the things you enjoy (and the people that enjoy those things too) on a daily basis. Even if it's not your profession, it's still in your life!

  23. Blaaaaah. So frustrating. I can't believe how lost I feel after graduating, so I'm afraid I have very little advice to give. Except maybe lots of prayer, and diet coke, and trying to enjoy what you can from what you are learning and be thankful for the opportunity even if it isn't your passion. It's freaking hard though. You are soooo talented in so many things, I know that if you keep trying to move forward then wonderful things will happen for you!

  24. You look so smokin' hot in these jeans!

    Life is so frustrating sometimes. I think you should try not to stress too much. You are already so many things- a wife, a blogger, etc. But, that is easy for me to say when I'm not actually in the situation!

  25. I'm sorry your unsure. That is so hard. That is why I Never finished school. I just want' ever sure. As far as having kids go: YOU ARE SO YOUNG still. Get out of Utah and you'll see that not everyone your same age is having kids. Mormon's just start a lot sooner than the rest of the world. you 'll figure it out. I'm 27 almost 28 and I thought I was late to have kids too... but I'm really not. It's just the right time for us. You will have your right time too. Good luck with figuring things out. I wish I knew what I wanted to do too!

  26. I TOTALLY know what you mean. I'm already done with college and now wish I could go back and do something different. But that's expensive. It's so worth it to step back and really think, pray, and fast about it. Best of luck to you! P.S. I just LOVE that necklace I won on your blog. It's fabulous :)

  27. I love your jeans and don't worry things will work out the way they are supposed to:)

  28. oh that flowy top!...i may be a little green with envy ;) and paired with the bell bottoms (that were thrifted!) nice work!

    and about your situation with finding out what you want to end up doing...i totally feel you with not wanting to "waste" time! (even though my mom always said school is never a waste of time:) Whatever you decide I know you'll be stellar at...from your blog, i can tell you're oozing with good taste and have a lot of creativity to offer :) Good luck with everything!

  29. You probably received a lot of advise in the previous 30 comments. Well, my 2 cents are: professional interests and personal interests do not necessarily have to be the same. I love arts, crafts, design, fashion, beauty, you name it. But when I made my decision (10 years ago, mind you) of what I was going to study I had to be rational and went for that which I loved but was going to allow me to have a career. That's how I decided, from ALL the things I loved, to become a language teacher. I love it and I don't regret it. And yes, I still find time in my life to do all those things that are important to me. I mean, come on! I don't go out on the streets naked, without make up on, or a nice hairdo, so there... I get to do those things I love while having a career. :)

    Hope you find your way to your own happiness! :)

    xoxo

  30. PS: I had many meltdowns and periods of hating what I was doing just because I had my mind set in becoming a graphic designer. But one day it stroke me and I knew I was on the right path and from then on, I have not looked back once. :) Good luck!
