Cozy New Year-ish
I’ve waited almost a month to write on this again because of so many changes I’m going through.
For one, I quit my job right after New Years. Yup. Quit. Done. Moving on to something new, fresh and challenging. I’ve worked in the fashion industry for over a decade now and I quit my last job because I was bored and because I wanted to start taking control of my own life.
Maybe you know the feeling; you’re up early because of the kids and you rush to get them ready and hardly have the time to make yourself look half decent for work. Then it’s rush, rush, rush at work and then rush, rush, rush home after 6, parenting til after 9 and then rush, rush, rush fitting in some personal time before bed at around 11. I know millions of people do this but I don’t want to anymore. What am I working so hard for at this company? What can I do to change all that? Questions on my mind for a few years now but I didn’t do much about it.
Before the holidays, I had a performance review from my boss at work. It didn’t turn out as well as I had thought. *I* thought I was doing well but my boss didn’t think so and she insinuated that my job was hanging in the balance.
There I was, sitting at my desk and doing the best I could do…like, really pushing it. Sometimes I gave a good 80% and other times I gave over 110%, nevertheless, I was overworked, underpaid and dyeing on the inside; maybe it was simply emptiness I felt.
On a not so spontaneous whim, I quit after the holidays and since then, I’ve taken the month of January to self reflect and figure out what my next game plan is.
One thing I know I want to do more of and pursue as a full career is this blog right here. I know, it’s nothing fancy right now but with the extra time I have, I’m gonna see what I can do more for this, see how this grows.
I wanted to have a warm, cozy shoot with some of my favorite sweaters from H&M. I wanted to feel safe and show a little vulnerability since it’s how I’ve been feeling and what I’ve been needing this past month.
Enjoy my lovelies.
