I remember back just after high school I was a weird late teen who didn't really know what I wanted to be or where I wanted to go in life. I was in college, as in I was attending classes, but I really wasn't great at tests or studying. I found myself lost in life and just going through the motions. I loved the friends I had and just hanging out. Way more fun than going to class for me. I felt free to do what I wanted when I wanted.
My best friend and I went to college two hours away from each other so when we were able to get together we usually had two spots we would go. A late night party (good times) or the beach to watch the sunset. The beach was our way to sit, breathe and reflect on what we were going through. We would say that was our tranquil spot. We even got tranquility tattoos because of how amazing we would feel just sitting watching the sun set over the giant ocean. Mine was in the colors of the sunset (well supposed to be anyway lol). I would say that I was a hippie at heart. That it was a mind set. I still shave my armpits and legs. Although as creating this blog I told my boyfriend that I was going to stop shaving. Don't worry babe I like my legs nice and smooth. Anyway...the mindset. It is more of how I want to live my life and raise my daughter. Even though I do like my Facebook scrolling and pinning cinnamon rolls on Pinterest part of me hates technology and wants to live off grid. Live life before housewives drama and all the amaziness that is BravoTV. But lets be real...I love that shit!
I just hope to raise my daughter the way I was raised which was with manners, kindness and respect. I know that shoving a tablet in front of a kid at a restaurant is great because you don't have to worry about them making a peep or paying attention to what is going on around them but I am not like that. I want to be able to take my daughter to a resturant and interact with her, color on the kids menu and sip on some shirley temples as we giggle about what silly things we did that day. She's only a year and a half so lets hope I stick to that!
So thats about it, I am a hippie at heart filled with nervousness and excitement for what is to come in the future. Lets start with one day at a time, and make this year one to remember.
