Do you not know what to do, too?
When someone asks me what I want to do I get really scared. I feel like lately, I’ve been living in a very ambiguous space between caring too much about my path and too little. Trusting my God by doing everything one day and nothing the next. I don’t know what’s right - I don’t know how much I should analyze my past to prepare for my future. What if I want to be radical?
Stop living for your LinkedIn life update.
It’s not about that. None of this is about that. No matter if 1,000 people like your “new job” post on Facebook, your hands-in-the-air Insta, your pop of champagne when the job finally’s settled.
The world might try and tell you that what you spend your time on might not be for much.
That bustin yo butt to do well on something you care about isn’t worth it. That a project you canttttt stop thinking about isn’t allowed to happen.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever received an email from LinkedIn pushing you to celebrate someone starting a new job, and oh look! It’s someone you’re friends of friends with and oh look! They just got your dream job at your dream company in your dream city.
Hi, I'm Chlo.
I've been writing stories inspired by my real and imaginative experiences since I learned at age 7 that if you fold and staple construction paper together, it sort of looks like a real book. I have always craved soul serving stories- ones that melt like butter in your mind as you hear your heart explained out loud.
This here is my home away from home. When I'm not exploring neighborhood coffeehouses, driving down the Pacific Coast (again), or loving on all my people - I'm probably here, with you. Come on in! Scroll around. I hope you feel less alone.
