When the Journey to Your Dreams feel Lonely

When The Path To Following Your Dreams Feels Lonely

Walking home on my way after work a few weeks ago, a little lonely, I couldn’t help but hum ‘All my Friends‘ by Snakehips, Tinashe and Chance The Rapper for over 10 minutes as I inched closer to the Subway station. Then I thought it was about time to listen to the song in depth.

I took out my phone, opened Spotify app and scrolled down to one of my favorite songs, at least at that moment (because honestly, I love any pop music!). I felt this calmness in my soul afterward and actually felt happy to be all alone.

Affordable Workplace Fashion With NewChic

Dressing up for work or anywhere, in particular, has always been something quite tricky for me. Most especially because I don’t take fashion too seriously. I love to look good in a simple way and I will always choose a dress over anything else but I really never put so much stress on fashion.

As a child, I was in love with Christmas and everything festive that came with it. However, with age came the need to be so serious coupled with the fact that I became the one that had to do the spending. Adulting can be so amazing and annoying all at the same time.
