Forgive me for the constant delay on posts my dear lambs but I'm just too preoccupied working on and thinking about my future that I barely have time for anything else. I'm in a bit of a situation right now where wherein any decision I make will make a great impact on my life, career-wise so I've been planning and thinking really hard. I'm guessing it's something that happens to everyone reaching quarter-life and that every single decision you make does only affect yourself but the entirety of your future - correct me if I'm wrong. Is it just me or has any of you been in this situation too?

Anyway, I know I should be thankful that Im blessed with so much wonderful opportunities at this moment that they're almost too good to be true, and I am, don't get me wrong. But if there's anything I learned in my almost 25 years of existence, not every opportunity, however great, should be grabbed. That being, I have to make sure I choose correct option. But how is that even possible, right? How should I know if everything in this world is vague and without guarantee. 

Should I choose practicality over passion? Familiarity over money? Follow my mind or my heart? Should I stay blind or join a revolution? Be political or lay low?

I'm all about the balancing act so to say that I can only run to one end of the spectrum is slightly nerve-racking. But it's inevitable, and sooner than soon  have to make a commitment and stick to it. This is the part where I ask for your advise. Ugh, anything to enlighten me please, I would really, really appreciate it.


  1. Yes, that does sound like part of growing up and good for you for realizing that you are blessed with so many wonderful opportunities. I am horrible with advice and not much of one that people take advice from anyway but I do know that practically or not, if your heart is not in it, it will not last. Congrats!

  2. good:)) xx

  3. Oooh, sounds like you're in a tough spot Carla. I don't know for sure, as I still face those choices all the time (and don't have as much experience). However, I'd have to say a good balance between heart and mind, and a sprinkle of gut instinct will lead you to the right choice. Its tough, but years down the road, which choice will you regret the most if you don't take it?
    Hope you find your way and it works out!
    On a side note, this outfit is on point <3
