2,313 miles ♡


Hello friends,

Thank you for following along as a I have explored a style blog. It has been great fun, I will continue to share outfit ideas but I also want to make this blog a space where I can write about my feelings, thoughts, experiences, even what I eat--basically I want to write about life.
Being that I am far away from most of the people that I love (which is VERY difficult for me), I feel writing some of these experiences will help me feel connected to them.
Now for the reason why I am 2,313 miles away from Florida (my home), I decided to take a leap of faith and apply for what I believe is my dream job (even if this would be the second time around applying for a position).
The first time around applying for a position at my dream company I was so confident and knew I would be a good fit (totally was not, I just told myself that). The position was an assistant type of job.
At that point in my life I "knew" that was the job for me (I just REALLY wanted to work for that company doing whatever). Turned in my updated portfolio, resume and polished my LinkedIn account. Did everything I knew that was best to do including praying.
Got the call, I was ecstatic, one step closer (or really I thought this is it I got it)! However that was not the case (at all). The interview was okay or maybe even terrible not because I wasn't prepared or the interviewer was not fair but because that was not the job for me (as much as I wanted it to be).  My skills and qualifications were a match but I was not (that was difficult to realize).
Life went on as it always does but this time I was looking for what was next or what should be next according to His plan. I became fixated with this (during this time various "realties" started to appear in my life which I will discuss in another blog entry).
Back to today, I am living in Utah (2,313 miles away from my family) because I found the courage to apply for a job with my dream company again but this time for a position I was a match for (my real dream job). This time around the whole process went smoothly. I prepared and prayed and within weeks I found myself living in Utah (this experience I will also share in another entry).
Feeling very blessed for all the people, experiences and opportunities in my life--reason why I want to share. I know this new journey will be one of learning and especially one of conquering my fears.

Thanks so much for reading! Until next time!

With love from,

Kris
