The beach is somewhere I go to clear my mind. As soon as my toes become engrossed in the sand and I hear the waves lushly lapping on the shore, all my anxiety seems to just float away. With my 25th birthday coming closer and closer, I find myself questioning what it is I want out of life. When I was 18 and naive, I set out a series of goals I wanted to complete by certain age landmarks. With the last few days of 24 around the corner, I still haven’t landed myself on the career ladder.
My boyfriend says I’m crazy beating myself up over this one seemingly insignificant thing in my life. At 24, I have a first class degree, I have traveled the world, moved to the other side of it and currently live in one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
It makes me question;
Is having a ‘perfect’ job everything, or should you just concentrate on enjoying life? Do we work to live or live to work?
And that’s where the beach comes in. Why does a huge career matter? Why would I want to swap my laid-back beachy lifestyle in paradise to be stressed out of my mind? Seaside or stressful breakdown?
**Ponders for ten minutes**
Ok… that’s my deep, dear-diary-style-stuff done for the day. For this lovely walk in paradise, I wore my new printed Style Moi play suit. I just adore the gypsy-esque pattern in lush pink and turquoise tones. I highlighted these summery tones with my statement stone and rose gold necklace.
I picked up this little fringe bag for a whole $10 from Cotton On. It’s so crazy that you can get something so beautiful for the price of a pina colada.
Maybe I should pack up my things, grab my boyf and be a wandering gypsy for the rest of my life? I could go on a quest to find the most stunning tropical locations in the world. I’ll take my laptop and blog myself around every continent.
