Embrace Change

I don't know about you, but this year upon the turning of spring to summer I found myself craving change. I've been feeling a little static in Vancouver. 

While it's an incredibly beautiful city, I found myself in a position where I seemed to be just existing, not really loving my career and unsure of where my passions lie. 

My time abroad allowed for a shift in perspective for me. It turned the unforeseen future and the unknown, what otherwise would've been scary things for the old Emily, into an exciting opportunity for learning and growth. 

Approaching this new season with this outlook and a desire for something new and exciting, I have decided to move to Calgary. A city that will allow me to explore my passions, try new things, get out of my comfort zone and also be closer to my boyfriend. Don't worry Chanel and I will continue to post as a sister duo but you might see more posts of us individually. A Glass of Style will remain a platform for us to share things we love and keep you updated on the latest trends and travel tips. 

In this post you will read about some of the things that I learned in my three years in Vancouver along with some style shots of Chanel and I. 

Growing up in a small town I never felt fully comfortable wearing what I wanted without people questioning my style choices. Being in a new city with a blank slate I was finally able to come into myself and my own style.

I realized I'm all about what's new and different, pushing boundaries and broadening my horizons. 

It takes all kinds- There's so many different people in this world. Everyone has the ability to teach you something as long as you let them. Human interaction feeds the soul. Don't be afraid and talk to strangers. 

Be authentically you- don't let others dull your shine. Be who you are and wear what you want, no matter what people say or do. 

Don't be afraid of letting go and moving forward. People will come and go in your life and that's okay. As you change and grow relationships and friendships will do the same. 

Make time for the peope who matter to you. I wouldn't be half the person I am today without all of the amazing friends I've made here. 

I'm so thankful for everything Vancouver has given me. Its been an incredible 3 years full of growth and transformation, learning and exploration. Given everything that's happened in the last 3 years, I can't wait to see what the next few have in store for Chanel and I.
