I'm so excited to announce that Famous Footwear reached out to collaborate on their #StepForward campaign. #StepForward aims to empower women to be the best version of themselves and reach their goals. They are with you every step (get it?) of the way.
When I read through their campaign, I wondered where exactly I was in my life and what I’m doing to get a step ahead in my goals. After I did some reflecting, I realized in only a few short weeks I'll be turning 25. Even though I’ve never seen the significance of hitting the 2-5, my friends and family have made it quite clear that I’m no longer in my early 20s and I’m subject to fall under the “quarter-life crisis” that many suffer from. Everyone said 25 was the time of their life. The time to travel and live life to the fullest but also, settle down. Right about this time, Britney Spears' song, I’m Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman, starts to play in my head.
Either way, I've made one large step so that I don't become a victim to the "quarter-life crisis" - I've put myself out there. Whether it has to do with my career, relationship, new friends, blog or fashion. I'm more willing to do what makes me happy and not have to give an excuse for it. I have failed and completely embarrassed myself but it was absolutely worth it. I'd rather take steps forward than think, "What if?"
