Life as of Late…and a Denim Dress

Since my last post I celebrated my 25th birthday, sold my house, had a emotional break-down, booked a trip to Disney World, became a tutor and painted a few pictures…That’s my short list, but you get the picture there is a lot going on. Unfortunately, I had to put some things on the back-burner and put “me” back together and functioning. I’m still figuring it out and I’m also reading all those articles about “What would 50-year-old me tell 25-year-old me” to try and get some direction. Whoever thought 25 would be so stressful? Do any other millennials feel a little lost?

I’ve gone as far as paying  $$ for a What Career Best Fits You test. Go ahead and laugh, I’m kind of everywhere right now. My mind goes from medical school to interior design, then back to the medical field, then public relations…WHAT A MESS. Not only can I not make up my mind, I’m too scared to move because I’m all over the place. I’m not complaining, I’m writing this to the world because of all those articles I read. The advice is vast, subjective and kind of everywhere. No wonder my generation is crazy. Damn internet. It’s definitely a love/hate relationship with me. Anyway I thought I would share a few articles that I found interesting and some things I took to heart. You have to start from somewhere, so the easiest place is to start with yourself and your purpose. Who are you? What is your purpose?

Question: SERIOUSLY, who am I? 

Answer: Right now, I’m a work in process…to be continued.

My Personal Favorite: 7 Strange Questions That Help You Find Your Life Purpose

Reading this article makes my gears run so hard they need oil. These questions are tough, I read this article 10 days ago and I’m still trying to answer them…This guy cuts right to the chase, no bullshit. Whenever I’m done with my answers, I’ll post them. 

A Little More Fluffy/Nice: 25 Things My 25-Year-Old Self Would Tell Me on My 50th Birthday

This list is more about advice. Sometimes you are your biggest obstacle and harshest critic. It’s nice to read something that reminds you to breathe and give yourself a little break. I’m still working on the criticizing and break thing.

One tip I did take-#12- I started painting again and it’s pretty enjoyable. Tiberius and Kingsley try to join in, that’s not so enjoyable. 

A Book That Makes You Think: The Mastery of Love

I’m still reading this book. Even though it is not long, you are processing so many things that it takes you an hour to finish a chapter. I started writing down my thoughts and questions, as they came. Personally I don’t agree with everything in this book, but it does have some amazing perspectives. 


Enough of this heavy stuff, I got a lot of questions about one of my date-night outfits. SO I wanted to end this post on something that is much easier for me to talk about.

If you are ever find yourself in San Diego, Whisknladle is a restaurant to visit! The food is great, the staff is friendly and the decor is fascinating. Make sure to make a reservation two+ days in advance. This restaurant also has sister restaurants that are equally as good and just as fascinating- Prepkitchen or Cantania.


 

There are so many other things that I would like to talk about, but for another time. If you are having some second thoughts about your career, please feel free to send me your story! I’m all ears and would love any insight/advice. You can contact me at macaronsandmasonjars@gmail.com or follow me on social media.

Love,

M&MJ
