“Dream as if you will live forever; Live as if you will die today”– James Dean
This is serious. This is serious business. James did not mess around . . . which is probably why he is one of the most influential humans STILL to this day. Side note :: my old roommate is gonna be stoked that this write-up is based around James Dean (shoutout to Rob, you da real MVP).
I think my attire in this post is more than appropriate & shows that I as well am NOT messing around. But seriously . . . how kick ass is my New York Jumper from Flynn Skye. I la-la-love statement pieces, and this makes a statement.
. . . but back to this being serious business. This as in dreams, your life, my life, LIFE. Life is twisted. Just the other day my Mum re-posted a photo on Facebook and at the top of the photo it read, “my plans” with a cute stick figure, wearing it’s cute baseball cap, and a straight line all the way to a quaint finish line. So serene **car coming to a screeching hault**. . . so NOT real life. At the bottom it read, “God’s plans” with a poor little stick figure man plunging to his death and a line that was so jagged, and went every which way, I was getting dizzy just looking at it. But, after I saw it I couldn’t help but say, “omg YAAASSSS” because literally the day before seeing this I lost yet another job. When I received the news that I was no longer needed in my position I will admit my heart went pitter patter, and my stomach felt like it was going to fall out of my butt (Mean Girls quote) . . but then I had an overwhelming peace set over me because how cool is it that my life is not in my hands!? That it’s in someone else’s that is SO much greater, better, and way more bad ass than me. Yes, Jesus is bad ass.
In my life, jobs that are keeping me afloat come and go, but my dreams . . . my dreams are forever. This, Two Little Birds Wander West, is a dream, and our dream is coming true! With a lot of good lighting (like even for food posts), editing, emailing, Instagram flow, and A LOT of sweat. No, like actual sweat. We pour sweat at every photoshoot. How the photos turn out this great I will never know.
Seww birdie bbs . . . life is short, don’t forget to dream . . . but also know that those dreams aren’t going to happen without the hard work set behind it. Put on your fancy pants, or in this case, your New York Jumper from our babes at Flynn Skye, give ’em that James Dean feelin’, and do the dang thing! be a rebel WITH a cause + get the look
