What The World Needs

This weekend was full of celebrating a few of our friends accomplishments -- the people who had a dream + balls + passion and made it all happen. I think I have mentioned here before how inspiring it is to watch somebody live out their dreams and how it ignites all sorts of happy feelings on my insides [similar to what Jake Owen does to me] but truly, it's wonderful. One of my favorite quotes is "Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." Thanks Howard Thurman for those wise words. Anyhow, that quote just kept ringing in my ears as we rocked out at our friend's album release party [download A Great Place To Start by Eric Lee Carpenter on iTunes or Spotify now] and as we drank another one of our friends homemade beer at his brand new brewery [south bend brew werks, check it]. 

It obviously all makes me question what in the heck I am doing with my own life [aside from watching Sex and the City] and makes me pay a little more attention to what I am doing today to get me to where I want to be in three months, three years, and thirty years from now. I guess there is only one problem with all of this...I don't really know where I want to be. Blogging? Perhaps. Working full-time? Maybe. Kids? Don't know. Living in the same house? Gosh I hope or my husband will murder me if we move. Eating macaroni and cheese, drinking vodka, and telling myself I need to be working out? Absolutely. 

So I guess I have a little bit of an idea of what I'll be doing. 

But really, it all has me kinda curious and more tuned into what my passions are. It has also made my stomach hurt because hello, figuring out life is a little bit ulcer inducing. As of right now here is what I have discovered that makes me come alive: 

+ searching the TV every morning for movies that I can record that day

+ moscow mules 

+ watching Eric Church in concert and trying to out-sing the drunk boys next to me [thank you Malibu Rum for scratching another #BestSummerEver item off my bucket list]

+ posing with lions. raaaaaaaaaawr.

+ my new keurig 2.0 brewer

+ bacon aioli sauce on top of a cheeseburger

+ really really really soft pajamas

+ popping champagne bottles

+ mocking people

+ reading every Emily Giffen book possible

+ ballin' outta control

And that pretty much covers it.

As you can see, I've got a bright future ahead of me. Stay tuned to see what I do with all of these passions. I foresee a lot of weight gain, good times, and late nights on the couch in my near future.




  1. And what's wrong with that? Chica, you've got an awesome life, and I knew that as soon as mac n' cheese on the reg came into the picture. I mean, I'm currently sitting in a ridiculously uncomfortable high chair in a computer lab "studying" sans mac n' cheese AND vodka, so your couch-bound night automatically beats mine.

    Cheers to figuring it out as you go and living passionately. That's what life's about anyways. Don't let them tell ya otherwise.


  2. I'm still trying to figure it out too! Also, Eric Church and Emily Giffen = amazing. That is all.

  3. You have a zest for life so who cares what direction you are or are not sure of. Just keep doing what you do

  4. god. eric church is everything. you look baller in that pic!

  5. This post has so much epicness I don't know where to begin. First of all, a huge congrats to your friend! Second, I'm going to Church [get it] in 2 weeks and I CAN'T FREAKING WAIT. Gahhhhh! Third, I'm excited to see where your passions take you. Fourth, thanks for that quote!! I needed to hear it tonight a midst my own quest to fulfill my own desires and passions!!

  6. Sounds like you know what life's all about!

  7. I still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up, but I'm ridiculously happy with my simple little life now, so I'm just enjoying it! :)

  8. Looks like a winning plan to me! Ballin' for sure! (Love the sunglasses!)

  9. As my dad (who just turned 60) said a couple years ago, "I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up." Not knowing what the future holds and following your passions as they change throughout your life IS living. You don't have to have a plan for what you'll be doing a year from now. As long as you do what you love then you'll love what you do!

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
