I don’t have all of the answers but it has been on my heart to share with you so things that have helped me along the way, in hopes that it provides light at the end of your tunnel.
Here’s 3 things you can start doing TODAY that will help you find your purpose:
I think that it is safe to say that somewhere between 24-27 millennials hit a quarter century life crisis. It’s a stage in life were we question everything we’ve done this far and how we arrived to the point we are current at in life.
Whether good or bad we judge our lives not only by how far we have come in this journey, but how far our peers, people we know, and people we used know pair up against not only our success, but our failures as well. Henceforth a generation full of social media driven self-images.
I don’t have all of the answers but it has been on my heart to share with you some things that have helped me along the way, in hopes that it provides light at the end of your tunnel.
Here’s 3 things you can start doing TODAY that will help you find your purpose:
- Focus your efforts in what you are good. Spend your time growing and enhancing that. What you focus on is what grows, so if you are constantly pointing out things you are not good at, that is the self-image you are creating.
Your Tribe dictates your Vibe. If you are around people who don’t appreciate all of the neat and quirky things that you bring to the table, then you don’t need to be eating with them! There are literally BILLIONS of people in the world, no need to sweat anyone that doesn’t want to take the time to understand who you are as a person. Your tribe doesn’t have to look, speak, and act just like you; they just need to appreciate the uniqueness that you bring to the table.
Pray for clarity. Continuously ask God to help you understand your life as it unveils. Ask Him to give you a clear distinction of what opportunities, relationships, and paths are correct for you. This is very important if you fill like you are always going back and forth and you are not really clear why.
Tools to Help:
Make a to-do list daily or weekly. Make your list full of small things that will help you reach a big goal that you see yourself accomplishing within the next 6 months to a year.
Go out of your way to meet new like minded people. A few good places to meet new people could be through special interest groups. I recently started a Brunch in the DFW area called Because Women Love Brunch, just to help women find other like minded women to connect with. You can use apps like Meet Up and Eventbrite to see what is going on in your area.
Daily Devotional Books are great for a small work of encouragement. I have friend that send out a message daily with a devotional and a prayer. I don’t read mine daily as I should, but having prayers that touch on different topics help me when I’m not even sure what to pray for.

Quickie, Pronto, and Mini Sessions are all referring to less than a full photo session with a professional photographer. You can see all my favorites from my recent pronto shoot with the talented Afritina below. Although the length of your session is shorter and you will save yourself a few bucks. A good photographer is still a good grip money, even at half the rate. But because I love you and I’m in a giving mood 🙂 I’m going to give you some helpful tips and tricks on how to make the most of your next pronto session!
Tip #1: Find the right photographer for the job. A pronto shoot is great if you have specific shots you want accomplish. Which is why I think it’s an awesome way for bloggers old and new to update and refresh their site. Each photographer has their own style and approach. ie. Afritina is great at creating art and seeing things from a different perspective. A lot of her personal photography is girly grunge. And as you can see from our collaboration that touch comes though in the photos she took of me.
Keep scrolling to get more awesome tips!
Tip#2: Provide your photographer an example of specific shots you want to capture. Don’t have your photographer
copy someone else’s work, but instead allow them to put their own twist on it. An example for a blogger would be detailed shots of your outfit, shoes, and accessories.
Tip #3: Don’t be
on time… BE EARLY. Early arrival allows you to see what the desired site offers. It also allows you to finish any make-up/ wardrobe touch ups. With this tip ypu will be ready to start the photo when your photographer arrives/ the set start time. (BOOM! You’re already light years ahead of the game.)
More tips below!
Tip #4: Pre plan any outfit changes. I am not just talking about what you will change into. I’m talking about where will you change? If you are outdoors are you okay with changing in your car or between two open doors. Lol. Now is not the time to be modest. Ask your photographer if they have an outfit change tent. Bring a friend with a sheet. Whatever works. And change like your a NASCAR driver filling up for gas during a race. Time is money. Literally.
Tip #5: Step away from the
filters. A photographer works hard to edit your photos. Don’t trash their work by adding a cheesy Instagram filter. If you would like something adjusted let the photographer know and I’m sure they will fix it for you 🙂

The Slinky Cowl Front Bodycon was the perfect club dress for my Miami trip this summer. Normally a dress from Missguided is going to run you about $40, but they are having a sale and select colors are as low as $13! If you see your size you’d better hurry and snag it, because Missguided sale item GO FAST! 🙂 And don’t worry if you aren’t a frequent club goer just put a duster coat or blazer over your dress and it would be perfect for dinner or a girls night out <3
