Monday Morning Coffee With Alyssa No. 14


I had my entire week of blogging planned out but last minute I decided to switch things up. I haven't done a Monday Morning Coffee post in awhile and I've had a lot on my mind lately so I figured why not.
. . . . . . .

It's been two months since I graduated college and here's what I'm up to: Working two part-time jobs (both of which I said I would never come back too) and living at my parents again. I even got so fed up with one of my jobs yesterday that I literally almost had a mental breakdown. Long story short, the post-grad life can be so stressful. 

Sometimes it can be really discouraging seeing people in your graduating class at their full-time jobs and brand new apartments because all you can think about is 'when will my time come.' I can't even remember how many jobs I've applied to, but I can tell you that none of them called me for an interview. At times I feel like God and life are so against me and that college was such a waste of my time. All I want is my dream career, being so financially stable that I never have to second guess purchasing something or taking a trip somewhere, and to be happy. But I also need to stop letting myself get so discouraged because my time will come. 

Blogging might be my calling, it might not. Either way I'm never going to stop what I'm doing and I'm never going to give up on what I'm passionate about. I love blogging and I love having a place where I can be myself and share my style with people who are genuinely interested. I love the blogging community and I will never stop doing what I'm doing.


However, yesterday I came to a few realizations.

1. I'll be living at my parents for quite some time and I'm ok with that. As long as a person is doing something with their lives I don't see why others have to discourage those still living at home. I'm working towards savings money to pay off bills, get my dream car, and be financially stable for when I do decide to get my own place again and I'm ok with that. 

2. Life takes time. I don't know what the rest of this year will have in store for me, I don't know what next month will have in store for me and I need to accept that. I can't put myself down every time I apply for a job and don't get a call back because my time will come.

So if you're in the same boat as me right now, don't let life stress you out too much. Enjoy the place you're currently at and make the most out of every opportunity that comes your way.

If you're still reading this, you rock because it's a jumbled mess with my thoughts, but I wanted to share it. I really do appreciate everyone who takes the time to read all of my blog posts no matter what I write about! Thanks for stopping by today, xo.
