Inspiration where art thou

I’ve been thinking a lot lately. I’ve been thinking in a broader sense, what the heck am I supposed to do with my life.

Ok really, Tess? You’re 27, your quarter life crisis should really be over by now.

But apparently it’s not. I’m not running around like a chicken with head cut off, or partying my life away. Or worried that I am getting older. No thoughts of moving across the country with no plan and zero dollars. Been there done that. None of those irrational quarter life crisis moments. Those seem to be behind me. Just a simple, what is my purpose here? Where am I supposed to be going. And moreso, how do I get there? And I have to be completely honest here, while I can’t wait to one day become and mom and start a family, I don’t believe or want that to be my only purpose in life.

Unless I can get my kid on dance moms. In that case, I am fully willing to revolve my life around my child!  
Kidding asise, there is a 50% chance I just over thinking it all. I have a tendency to do that. But as I cruise around blog world I find other girls have the same questions. Shoot, other boys too.
Maybe I just need to shake things up. Who knows. I am in fact quite busy at the moment, but I guess I am not busy enough. Or busy with the right things. Anyhow.
I took to Pinterest to see if I could shake this little brain of mine, and find some inspiration. Shall we discuss?
This is where it became confusing. Quote #1.
So… aspire to nothing and accept everything as is. Hm.. basically stop thinking. I mean someone has it planned out anyway right? so why think? 
Notsofast crazypants. The complete opposite. DECIDE then go.
NOW Sir Winston Churchill says.. try to be perfect. I’m gonna have to say this one is definitely at odds with the two above. Most Definitely.
This was my definite favorite. Just throw some glitter and make it all ok!!!!!! Feeling down? Throw a glitter bomb. Feeling confused, again, Throw glitter. It’s all very Mariah Carey.
And then finally. A sign. Very supernatural of this photoshop designer.
And my favorite. Just jump off a cliff. Into a body of water of course. I mean why not?

Anybody else have these thoughts? that’s my crazy brain for the day. Happy weekend!!!

I totally know what you mean! This age seems so tricky to me... you're settling down into your "grown up" life, but you don't really feel grown up. It's like an awkward middle stage. We'll find our way! Hopefully... HAHA!

Lol, love all your conflicting quotes. And I hear you - I still don't feel grown up and I'm quite a bit older than you!

I LOVE this!! I think we all need the reminder every once in awhile to just ENJOY life! We get so caught up in everything else that we forget to just be happy and live in the moment.
