    You got this, Lauren. 🙂 I am a bit older and still feel so inspired by what you've said here–we all need a little encouragement sometimes as we figure things out! Thanks for sharing it. 🙂

    i've really enjoyed reading all of the posts from maya's linkup today! 🙂 i do feel stuck sometimes in my life, like where is it all going?! what's coming up next? i need to take your advice and try to be patient and hopeful instead of anxious about the future. xo

    You are so right when you say life is full of variables we can't control. I've experienced that more times that I care to share over the past few months. I'm about to turn 27 and sometimes I get overwhelmed by the fact that I haven't do this or that yet, but others my age have. It's hard not to play the "compare game." Thanks so much for sharing your inspiring story! I'm excited to start following along with your blog 🙂

    Love this campaign! It's so great to here stories about how we're not "perfect". As much as I love blogging, I'm guilty of getting wrapped up in comparing myself to others and being so hard on myself. It's nice to be reminded that we're all normal people with every-day struggles.

    Love your blog even more for sharing this story 🙂

    xo, Jen

    I SO relate to this! Comparing myself to others is something I struggle with on a consistent basis- I wrote my post on that as well, I'm glad someone else is going through the same thing!

    I wasn't always a huge believer, but I'm starting to warm up to the idea that everything happens for a reason. Thanks for the support!

    Oh girl, thank you thank you for sharing! I still don't know what I want to "be" when I grow up, but I'm hoping I keep getting closer and closer everyday 🙂 Also, living with an actor in Chicago makes me know how hard the biz is – keep on keepin' on and fighting for it! Your hard work and determination will pay off 🙂 xx

    "Where you are right now might be leading you to something better than you even imagined." I love that. I want to print it on one of those wall decal things and put it in every room of my house. Or at least where I'll see it all the time… like on my makeup mirror and on the back of my front door. Yes. So very much yes!!

    "Where you are right now might be leading you to something better than you even imagined." I want to make this into wall decals and put them everywhere in my house. Everywhere. I love it so hard! At the very least, I might make something pretty, frame it and put a copy next to my bed, on the wall by where I do my makeup, and next to my front door. Absolute perfection.
