It’s a path I’ve been down way more times than I’d like to admit. Alarm sounds, you hit the snooze button about 17 times, and then you realize you only have 5 minutes to get ready. Whaaaaaaaat?! How am I going to be ready on time and look decent at the same time? Don’t panic! I’m here to help!
When this happens black is always the answer for me. I try not to use black that much, but it works so good every time that I don’t think I can ever stop wearing it. After many years of waking up late and having only 5 minutes to get ready, I’d like to think I’ve mastered the art of getting dressed. I assemble this outfit in less than five minutes. Black skinny pants (always), a couple of black and white prints (jacket and sweater) and a pop of color (scarf). I’m telling you it never fails! Best part? Most of these pieces are probably already in your closet.
I know we all have days when we feel like not getting out of bed, and we keep postponing & postponing that alarm but, think about the real reason you don’t want to get up. It could be that you hate your job, lack of motivation, or simply that you went to bed late the night before. Still, analyze if this happens to often. If it does, there’s probably something you’ll have to change.
I read on a Steve Jobs speech that he used to ask himself every morning; If this was my last day on earth, would I still do all the things I’m about to do today? If the answer was “NO” for too long, it was time to change something. This inspired me to do the same.
In my case, the answer was “NO” for way too long and it scared me to hell; I remember feeling like this for almost two years. Can you imagine? Being miserable almost every day for two whole years? I definitely had to make some changes. BIG ones. I gave my life a 360 shift; I quitted my job and moved to a different country. Not extreme at all, right?
It wasn’t an easy decision to make, that’s for sure, but I’m convinced I’ve made the right one. I believe nothing great ever happens from comfort zones. I’m doing right now all the things I want… Well not exactly ALL, but it sure feels like I’m on the right path and that’s something, that’s really something. I feel so free now. It has been amazing to see myself evolve onto this completely new person. I’m not afraid or unhappy anymore. It’s liberating.
I’m 27 years old and I just started to discover who I am and I love it! Every day is different and everyday there’s something for me to learn. And even though I’m not nearly close to be or have all the things I imagined to have or done by now, I feel happy, because every day I’m closer to getting there and to be the person I ought to be.
These days, I’m still using the snooze button way too often, but now it’s because I went to bed late because I was writing something or simply because my bed felt so good and comfy that I didn’t want to get up, that’s it! It has nothing to do with being unhappy or miserable anymore. I love it and can’t wait to see the next chapter in my life.
Best wishes for everyone. Take care and spread good vibes!
