Am I Adulting Now?

I interrupt your usual browsing of pretty photos, outfits, and cats to bring you a pretty important announcement about my life.


Life is about to change for me, in a big way. I am sad to announce that I will be leaving Anthropologie and retail. But, I am happy to announce thatI have accepted a Social Media Marketing Manager position with Spherion! This will be a huge new adventure for me. Also, in September I will be moving back to Naples! Jason and I are both from Naples, and both of our families are there. We are so excited to come back to our home town. Jason will be transferring to FGCU and finishing up his degree there.

When trying to balance my lower chakras, one of the challenges I have had is this overwhelming feeling of not being financially secure. This can impact your feelings of safety and security in the physical world. I have had to work full-time, and hold another part-time job just to stay afloat. I asked for answers, and the universe spit one out for me. I had already been working for Spherion part-time for about a year when they decided to take my position full-time. It has been a waiting game while they figured out what this position would entail, and if it would work for my life. But, in the end, it is a great opportunity for me. I am happy to be able to take my life in a new direction.

Another thing that has been a huge burden on my life was the schedule that retail offers. The schedule is never consistent, I don’t have very many weekends, and it is hard to keep a balance. With this big change, I will finally have a set schedule, and will be able to plan my life around that. It think it has been really hard not to have a regular schedule. My sleep cycle is always off, and even my eating habits have suffered. This job should offer a really great improvement for my over all well being.

Also, I really hope to get back into theatre! I used to perform in shows and plays all through childhood and even into college. In Tampa, there isn’t a whole lot of great options for the community. I hope to participate in community choirs and theatre once I get back in Naples. Plus, my schedule will allow me to attend regular rehearsals and such. When I had this revelation about being able to perform in the arts again, I literally started to cry. I had forgotten how much it actually meant to me. I miss it so much, and I can’t wait to dive back in.

There will be more to come on this, but I am very excited to start this new journey!
