Hi there! My name is Susannah and I blog over at susannahbean.com, where I share little snippets of my daily life. When Chantilly asked me to be a part of her party, I was so flattered, but then I instantly got nervous! Here she is, accomplishing something amazing, and I haven't quite gotten that far in my life. After battling some nerves and false starts, I decided I wanted to share a little of my story with you.
I'm a perpetual thinker... I make plans and lists and have lofty dreams about my future, but I'm not a sit-down-and-make-it-happen kinda gal. I will always make a to-do list, and I will always forget to use it. I have dozens of crazy ideas about what I could do with my life, but I haven't made too many steps towards making them a reality. I'm not quite sure why, bet it's partly out of fear of failure and of risk, but I think a lot of it is due to the fact that I just truly can't narrow down my list of ideas into something more manageable.
I'm (almost) 26 years old, and I still don't know what I wanna be when I grow up. I have lots of things that sound totally rad, but I'm not sold on anything yet. I haven't found my "calling". I think it's amazing when someone just *knows* what they're meant to do, or that they have to pursue a certain field or career. And I think it's sort of ingrained in us, I mean we're supposed to pick a career in our early 20s that's supposed to last a lifetime! Sheesh, that's too much pressure for me. So instead, I make little goals while I take time to figure out the big ones.
I have no idea what I want to do with my life, but I do know what I want to do this week, or next month, or a year from now. At least part of it! I know I want my blog and shop to grow, but I don't know how big. I know at some point I want to get married and have babies, but who knows when that'll happen! I'd love to have a career I'm passionate about, but I couldn't even muster a guess as to what it'd be like. I've made peace with the fact that I won't have everything planned and figured out all the time, and I've learned to appreciate the little accomplishments in life. There will be big accomplishments in time :)
I'm so happy for Chantilly and her big accomplishment, and all the little ones that led up to it!
