One True Calling? Nah!

I'm coming off my vacation high and this sh*t is tough. When I booked my trip I thought "oh, I'm going to come back refreshed and reinvigorated and ready to hit the ground running for the rest of the year." Instead I'm feeling frustrated and confused and keep asking myself the question: what's next!? Yesterday I watched this Ted Talk and it hit me: I'm a multipotentialite. In a nutshell the talk touches on how many of us don't have one true calling. We love to immerse ourselves in new challenges, hobbies, etc. and typically become very good at them until we get bored and want to try something new. Living a true multi-potential life also causes a lot of anxiety because it's not the norm and as multipotentialites we are constantly bombarded with q's like:

What's your major?
What do you want to be when you grow up?
What's your career path?
What do you LOVE to do?

All of these are singular! Multipotentialites are so much more than one focused "major." If you at all feel like this, I definitely suggest watching the Ted Talk. Once you watch you'll understand when I say I'm at the two year mark... almost to the day! Anywho, as I figure out my life, I wanted to share that gem of a Ted talk in case it could help bring some clarity to your life.

Back to our regularly scheduled programming! In packing for my 15 day trip I opted for easy breezy dresses like this Billabong dress from Lulus  and wide-brimmed hats like Janessa Leone oneSperlonga was REALLY warm and humid.... oh and btw, they don't do AC in Italy like we do in the States. To say I was sweaty 90% off the time is an understatement. This dress is super lightweight and rolls up tiny tiny which is perfect for travel!

Oh man am I missing my days spent in this pretty little town. I'll be sharing my thoughts on Sperlonga soon; it's magical! Currently en route to NY for a black tie wedding and can't wait to get all dressed up! Andy bought a gorgeous new tux... eek, I'm excited.

  1. Gorgeous, as always, and well done on the self-photos.

    I'm going to watch that TED talk... sounds interesting. I read the article you mentioned a while back about pushing through when things get difficult in work, it was interesting, insightful and I think of it often. I appreciate learning things like this, so keep up with the tips & things you come across! :) xo

  2. I watched that TED talk when you posted it on FB and it's literally me completely. I've always been/felt this way. Shaking off the post travel blues are the worst. It took me a month to come off of my London & Paris high. The travel bug is real. Love these photos xo

  3. I never feel re-invigorated after vacations. Entering back into reality is always such a let down. I wish life was one big vacay all the time! <3 Love your post. This dress is so cute!
    PS. Must watch that show! Will look it up! Thank you!
