On Drive and Ambition

Hello lovelies!

It's not often that I come to life realizations while watching Bravo. Well let's get real. It never happens.

Saturday though I was being super lazy on my couch and Start Ups- Silicon Valley was on. I started watching and one of the characters (The blonde British chic), was talking about how she worked her butt off to get where she is, but isn't where she wants to be yet. I don't know why this resonated with me so much.....

At the end of my time at Ohio State University I worked my butt of to get into my field. I stalked recruiters (I mean I was sending emails out daily), I sent my resume out all the time, I took a sales associate job just to get my foot in ANY door. And it totally paid off. I got the position I have now and I feel SOOOOO blessed.

Lately though with everything that's been going on in my personal life I feel like I've lost my drive. I'm not at all where I want to be. Even with my blog, I get to the end of my day and I have this massive overwhelming relief that I made it without a mental breakdown. I just don't have that ambition right now and I want it back.

I want my drive back. I want goals. I want to learn more about the business I work in because I want to my career to grow and progress. I want to get better at this blog, I want to reach people and grow and be even more a part of this great community that is out there. There are so many things I'm drawn too and I'm interested in, and isn't this the best time to reinvent myself and reinvigorate my life anyway?

Well if you made it through that crazy stream of consciousness thanks. Here's to me....moving forward with a new drive.



Oh by the way....Lindsay has planned a blogger meetup this Saturday! Are my Columbus peeps coming? You should RSVP HERE if you are. Can't wait to see you all this weekend!

I completely feel you on everything! I've been working my butt off in my field (museums) but unfortunately haven't made it yet. Which leads me to my lack of drive these days. Don't know how to get over it but we're tough women so we will!!

Hi Whitney! Love the blog! I'm actually up here with you in Buckeye state, but we're originally from Kansas City so we're Jayhawks for life. Fans up here are crazy for that team though. :) Anyway, Boomer is just a doll!
