Say Yes: What I Learned From Miley Cyrus

When I think of 23, I think of Miley Cyrus. Miley Cyrus was born November 23, 1992. She is about three months older than me. I grew up with her playing in the background. Her TV series was my favorite when it came out on Disney, mostly because she is my age. Her song “The Climb” came out when I was in the middle of high school. Now when I watch her I am praying, “Please, God, don’t let me get that crazy. Ever”. She’s like that older sister who has done a few crazy things that you’ve learned from watching her, you never want to do.

I feel like I am watching what it is like to be a 23-year-old, and it isn’t looking great. She is a 23-year-old, a perfect example of starting over, leaving her roots and trying new things. One of those new things being a head full of blonde dreads. She is a creative person, and sometimes creative people  just need to start over. I would love to sit with her and listen to why her look, her music and image has changed so much. I think I could relate, but also learn from her.

What happens when you turn 23? I don’t know. I am 22 until February. Not going to lie, Taylor Swift’s song about being 22 has been my theme song. Everything in that song is so true about my life this year. What lies ahead in the 23rd year in life? I am on a search for a new theme song for this year.

I wonder if 23-year-olds are just done. We made it through high school, college and paying rent for the first time. There is nothing left. Now what do we do? Create from scratch and say yes. Say Yes

I am torn between two strategies.

  1. Go for what you really want to do, because deep down you know what that really is.
  2. You don’t really know if you will ever make it to where you want to be and you don’t actually know what you want because really you are only 23, so you should probably keep saying yes to open doors.

The problem with strategy number one is I don’t really know what I want. I think this is because I am old enough to understand reality of bills, payments, taxes; but also young enough to think there still might be a way to do what I really love. The scary thing about strategy 2 is saying yes can get you into some great, but unexpected situations. How do you think I got into radio? I said, yes. I am ready for the next step but when will that happen? I can’t really loose either way. Maybe strategy two will lead to one.

Next Step

Until the next step, I want to be ready. This outfit is my, “ready for the next step” outfit. As confused as I am about what is next I am not about to dread my hair and wear a smily face as an outfit. If you are in the same place. I beg you. Please. Don’t do that either. However, keep trying new things that will stretch and grow you into the person you will be. If that is what being 23 is about, I guess I’ll just have to keep saying yes.

Say Yes 2Miley Cyrus’ song “23” will not be my theme song for this year. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear your ideas!

My two words for this outfit are NEXT STEP or SAY YES

    Girl, I can identify. 23 is hard! The twenties are a confusing time, but they’re also a great time to start over + try a ton of new things! Know that you’re on the right track – and you’re looking great while doing it 😉

    23 is the hardest year! But keep saying yes to those doors that open up and follow your dreams! I love this look, there is nothing better than a classic black blazer
