what inspires you?

only you can find your path

I plan to make some blog changes in the next few weeks. I am thinking of revamping, so I’ve been searching for inspiration for the last few days. I’m working to figure out my new vision, to really pinpoint it. I’ve been searching through other blogs and reading as much information as I can on the Internet. I’ve always been outside a lot. I find that it helps me think, except it’s so damn hot (yes, it’s that hot in October in Texas).

Another thing that has helped is just writing, even without a distinct vision. I have been in quite the writing rut lately. I haven’t known what exactly to write about (what am I really an expert in?) and how to put my words onto paper in the right way. Recently, (today, actually) I just said, “Fuck it,” and started putting all my real thoughts down on paper. It’s been helpful. I have a few posts saved and ready to be posted soon that are very real and very me. I’m excited to share them.

I also found this great article on Thought Catalog about ways to boast creativity. It was fitting for my day.

So, I have to ask you, bloggers: where do you get your inspiration?


The Simple Way To Catch Everyone Up

First off, let me apologize for being a terrible blogger and not updating in about five months. A LOT has happened in five months. I want to use this one blog post to catch everyone up on exactly what has been going on and why I haven’t updated.

Last you heard from me, I was living in Cleveland and working in entertainment PR. In November, I made the giant leap to Los Angeles to pursue a dream of working in entertainment PR in the hub of it all. I got a great job at an agency and had the opportunity to work some amazing events and see tons of celebrity sightings. The highlight: my second week there, I worked a red carpet event where Meryl Streep was there, RIGHT in front of me, in the flesh! I will not bore you with all the details of my move and job, but I felt that was worth noting.

I worked there for about four months when my fiancé was offered an amazing opportunity in Plano, TX. After a lot of thought and back and forth, we decided that he needed to take the job.

So off we went, another cross-country move for the SECOND time in five months. We’ve always said we wanted to travel and live in several different places before we settled down, so why not?

Another minor detail of what has happened since I blogged last…I got engaged! I know, I spoiled it already when mentioning my fiancé, but he asked and I said yes.

Needless to say, I’ve become sort-of an expert when it comes to moving. Seriously. The biggest piece of simple advice to give to anyone who’s about to make a cross-country move? Sell everything you own other than what you can fit in your car, and drive it to your new place yourself. We saved thousands of dollars doing this.

To wrap it all up, I’m now engaged and living in Plano, TX – looking to start over. Now that this is out of the way, I’m ready to get back to blogging.
