I really hope I'm not the only one with thoughts like this!
I feel like I’m stuck between lives. A big part of me dreams of living my life in oversized tees and bikinis, while taking the term “beach bum” to heart. Living with a permanent suntan, maybe owning an ice cream shop, and letting my natural curl be free in the wind. That is a feeling that I will always treasure. Being out on the water and having the infinite revelation of "how could anyone want to be anywhere else but here." Since I was a kid, I knew that the beach and the ocean were my calling, I never truly loved anywhere more. But, as I got older and had less time for lounging on the beach- I lost track of that dream of mine.
The other part of me likes the idea of nice clothes and fancy places. With a degree in PR & advertising, thoughts of moving to New York city and living the life of a fashionista city girl has danced through my head a countless number of times. I've even been dead set on that plan, that is until I step foot on the sandy beaches and remember by longing to be close to the salty air. But, it's hard to decipher which is meant for me, am I overthinking it? Are they really that different?
I guess both lifestyles end in the same feeling, the feeling of being small in such a big world. Living in Tampa, Fl I really do have the closest to both worlds as I could possibly have. But the feeling of uncertainty still haunts me. I feel like I have two 'vibes' that are battling each other!
I am young and I know I have time to live all my dreams, but I spend a lot of time thinking about my "destiny", as I'm sure most people do. I would love to know the different lives that you dream of! Comment or send me an email, let's get to talking!
I’m very lucky to live in a place where I can do both, but how do you decide who you want to be?
