Nobody's Perfect

If there is a "couldn't have said it better myself" moment, this would be it. Because, you see....nobody's perfect. Yes we all like to think everyone is as perfect as their blog, instagram, or facebook account's portray, but those are only glimpses of everyone's life. There is absolutely no one who is perfect, but (and this but is as big as Kim K's) despite our imperfections, everyone certainly has a purpose. Whatever that purpose may be, it is most definitely different and always changing, and important.




If I am being honest with you guys, I am sort of struggling with what my purpose is. I am totally in the middle of jobs (translation: unemployed). I mean, I have this blog, and its pretty much a small business (those who aren't bloggers probably don't realize that it pretty much is a business), and I have Elizabeth & West (which is slowly but surely getting there, I swear), but nothing with a steady income, you know? It has been years since I have had to job search, interview, let alone figure out what I want to do. Do I get a part time job and have my other part time job be my blog (because it pretty much is at this point...one that I absolutely love), or do I get a full time job? What am I even qualified for? I was a business owner for a couple of years and before that a teacher, so at this point in my life I am pretty much starting from scratch...in limbo, if you will.  I am sort of lost as to what my purpose is- or not so much lost, just trying to figure it out! I know part of my purpose is being a Mommy, and a wife and being there for my girls and my husband.

I know, though, that my purpose is so much more than that- so much more than being a Mommy and being a wife! I guess I could look at this as a new journey, a new chapter. I am working on it though and that's the best I can do at this point, right? I have been plugging away at my blog so it continues to grow, making myself proud by putting myself out there to make contacts for freelance opportunities (total sidenote...its kind of frightening just emailing big wigs, but its kind of awesome too. Any big wigs reading this....I'm here...I'm available...I'm cool!) and just using my time I have now to focus on growing my small business that is my blog, and exploring all sorts of opportunities.

My point is, if you are ever unsure-you have a purpose. Everyone does. It doesn't matter if yours is different than someone else's- its just as important. Not sure what your purpose is or still trying to figure it out? Welcome! My name is Rebecca and I will be your pilot! We've got time to figure it out, all we can do is try our best. And remember, nobody's perfect. (But these red heels are, aren't they?!?!)

  2. First of all, WE are perfect, right? Our kids are always dressed amazing and behave perfectly, and we sit around our homes in top knots and red lips, RIGHT? :) Second, I hear you on working. I haven't worked since 2008 and now I'm sort of scared to go back. I'm giving myself two years to make my blog bring in a great income, so that will be my job. I love using the skills needed to run a small business online (a blog) and I HOPE to make it work.

  4. Really great post. I understand where you're coming from bc I was where you are recently. I pray that you find clarity. It's tough to find and hone in on what your purpose is. But I'm a firm believer that all things work themselves out, and that timing is everything. Keep working on your small business and putting your self out there - things will fall in place! :-)

    Love your outfit, especially those pants! Happy Monday!

  5. Love the look! I just bought the black and white geo print of these pants and can't wait to wear them!!! You are correct, women are horrible about comparing themselves to others. I catch myself doing the same and have to make an effort not to!
