Then Chelsea ran off with the circus, left her life on the side of the street and started wearing rhinestones, every day. Almost.


It started with a couch.


This, overstuffed, double-wide, "Opium Den" couch, the kind of couch that deserves a name...a couch that has welcomed visitors and lulled them into a restful sleep, a couch that's wrapped itself around little bodies crumpled up in a fit of Pinot Grigio and Sara Bareilles induced tears and nostalgia, a couch that's encouraged friends to "sit still and stay awhile...." that's given room for friends to nestle up to one another, clutching onto each others knees and chatting about what they imagine their most "perfect scenario" would be, after they spilled every detail of their latest sexscapade and all the uncomfortable bits; unfamiliar body terrain and noises and a couch that's let strangers sit on opposite ends comfortably enough to relax and make a connection.......or in other cases, a couch that's been forgiving enough to let two seemingly damaged individuals "put it all aside for the night," imagine it never happened, order in Sesame Chicken and brush the fuzzies away from each others temples while watching The Breakfast Club for the first and the thousandth time.

Yeah...that's the kind of couch that deserves a name. But I never named her. Instead, I hugged her goodbye and I left her on the side of the street.


While I desperately NEEDED to get out of my previous situation (just SIX short months ago) away from memories of "him" and "us," into something that was solely MINE, something that would force me to get out of bed in the morning and engage with the world, I realized somewhere between nesting, watering newly planted roots and piling up Happy Hours with new friends, while navigating around the buzzing Startup community, in a growing company, with a desired job...that I was living someone's life that wasn't mine and wasn't guiding me in the direction of the life that WAS "perfectly made for me" and that I needed to get out before I took a literal saw to the couch and set it all on fire.


I looked around, one night at all my lovely things; the shabby chic coffee table that's paint was chipping off the corners, where coffee stains had easily made their way into circular patterns on the mint green paint, permanently, the love seat that I'd try to disappear into when I needed to "feel small," and the corner bookcase with books that had guided and inspired me....and then, the couch, THE COUCH, I looked at it all and thought, "It needs to go. It needs to go and so do I." I know, drama case....but don't worry, it DOES get more dramatic....

At some point while deciding that I was now a minimalist, ME, a girl who enjoys STUFF....while manically throwing my furniture and a significant amount of my clothing on the street.....

.... I also decided to quit my job.


It just seemed like the right choice. It wasn't JUST the furniture, just the town, or just the job....it was really just ME. Sounds sort of like a bad breakup line, but as bad as the line may be, sometimes that's just the truth. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect scenario, really; built-in support, built-in friends, a tailor made schedule, mentors, a radical job, amazing people....a town that looks like Santa Claus and all other fabled creatures probably spent romantic weekends roaming it's streets before they were a full blown fairytale. Where people practically have a direct line to Buddha, or the Maharishi, or Shirley MacLaine (hi, weird SEO searches) and they'll probably welcome you into their home, make you a green smoothie that makes your skin glow, and then give you a back massage while reading your horoscope and spoon feeding you cous cous. All lovely, all great...all just......not. quite. right. for me, right now.


I'd fled "us," only to find that I'd also fled a major part of ME. The Chelsea who used to write songs and confidently jump on stage when there was a free mic and a free moment for the spotlight. I'd left behind the Chelsea who knew what she imagined her future would look like, even if she didn't know how she was going to get there.....The Chelsea who didn't need approval, or a hectic social life to feel like a motherfucking rockstar. The Chelsea who was scrappy enough to "make it happen," to keep asking, to show up, to be in the right place at the right time and to pour just enough gasoline on the fire to keep hustling. The Chelsea who left a suitcase packed by the door, who made travel plans and dreamed up superstar apparitions.

...I'm sort of the, "throw your furniture on the street, quit your job and risk losing your friends and THEN FIGURE IT OUT" kind of girl and sure enough, that philosophy always works out for me.


Not only does it work out.....it transcends any idea I would've come up, because I wouldn't have believed in enough magic for it all to "work out," but I DID have the seed of the belief and that seed was just enough faith to leap before I knew how to operate the parachute.

Starting Friday, I will be back on the gypsy trail and back on a path that makes me feel like I'm coated in gold glitter and perma-grinning while dancing to a Robyn song on repeat in my head. I have a few opportunities on the line that could be life changing and trips/potential moving plans to LA, NYC and SF and I've taken on some incredible freelance gigs that give me both mobility, freedom and creative license, with more than enough time for me to pursue the things I adore, with GUSTO, even if that means spending hours upon hours meeting my muse, digging for inspiration or doing semi-pointless creative projects just to see if I CAN. If it means napping until 1, or eating olives all day while learning the art of calligraphy, then so be it. I know that right now, it's the right choice for me.


So, here's to honoring the little voice that tells you to leap.......Cheers loves.




What's your next adventure???

I love you so much, and I am so proud of you. And about throwing gasoline on things and lighting them on fire? Let me know where, and I'll bring the s'mores. You're a rockstar, my best, and I will follow you (in spirit and on as many weekends as I can...) wherEVER you go.

Rachel said...

I'll admit it, reading about everyone taking leaps all over the place makes me jealous. With each person/child you add to your life your leaps get shorter and shorter. Right now I can only leap as far as the local gym (hooray for new body goals?)
So enjoy the fact that someone is jealous of you right now (in that totally healthy "I cant wait for her to succeed" way, not the "I can't wait for her to fail" way)

Well, I say " go sweet Sparkley one! And, find what ever this thing, that you are searching for,really is! I had those feelings, but, I was too insecure, to go through with it, not even wheN they practically begged me to come to Vegas, and dance ,in a show, WHERE I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO TAKE MY CLOTHES OFF.But, my own insecurities, and low self esteem, just held me back, in N. Denver, with my" very happy "ex, and my two babies.DUH!! And, I might have actually really had it! I was funny, talented, and classy!Oh well, thing s do happen, when they are supposed to.God Love You, most precious one!xoxoxox

Stevie said...

Fucking awesome, Chelsea. So proud of you.

Green said...

Wow.

Brandi said...

You go girl! You know you're a rockstar!

wellthatsawkward said...

LOVE IT. I wish you the very best, and if that big bonfire happens, count me in -- I can't pass up an opportunity to light shit on fire and eat s'mores :)

andsoiwasthinking said...

Sometimes you've just gotta do what makes you feel free and happy - especially after an emotional upheaval!
I was forced to quit my job when my husband injured his leg and couldn't walk or work for three months (I had to use all our future OS holiday savings to live off). During all that my brother in law was sick with cancer. It took him fairly quickly and was a very tough time.

Now I am starting fresh and I feel free and ready to live my life again - but doing what? As who?? I have travel plans with my husband - that big youthful OS trip to Europe we never went on because of stressful events & mortgages. I still need a job which makes me feel like an aimless housewife but it's all good - I can build my life back up again!

You're gonna be and feel amazing - best of luck on your new adventure!! x

magdalena viktoria said...

Really, 'big props' to you. Figuring out all the crazyness in a rather crazy ways...that's all part of the wild ride in life. And really, you're pretty damn lucky--you're off on another adventure, to new cities, to try new things. Cool.
xx

Jamie said...

I love everything about this. Don't forget to come to Paris so we can dance in the street, drink wine and steal foreign kisses on deserted Parisian streets.

Berrak said...

You are an inspiration.

Sydney said...

Ay-fucking-men. And that's all. Really. You're amazing.

Garnet said...

This is amazing- YOU are amazing. In case you haven't heard this 34857 times before, you should be so proud that you have the balls follow your dreams and stay true to yourself No. Matter. What.

dominique said...

i'll echo what everyone else said with the pretty goddamned awesome. keep us updated of your travels. if you come close to nyc i would love to meet up with you :)

Amanda Blair said...

I am so happy for you! This is going to be a great experience for you and I really think it's what's life is all about. I do the same thing, just jump and figure it out later and you know what? it makes life a lot more exciting than just sitting around and waiting for things to happen!

im_anewsoul said...

St. Louis, MO.

I will be meeting someone in St. Louis :-)

My next adventure will be a continuation of the love story that I never finished but is currently pending. All the characters are in place and now it's time to make a move for the better.

L.L. said...

Congrats on doing what I don't have the guts to do, Chelsea. You are tough as nails and you can do whatever you want!

Michelle said...

Good luck sister! So excited for you!

Anonymous said...

Go get it Girlie! If anyone can, it is YOU! And, You so deserve it all!!!!

Habbala said...

I told you already BUT it bares saying again, you're going to light the world on fire. You are so brave and wonderful and I can't want to watch all the amazing wonderful things that are coming your way arrive.

And I CANNOT wait to see you in LA soon.

Courtney said...

Wow, so courageous! Good luck with the next adventure!

JUST ME said...

I support this giant leap into the unknown.

And Boulder, and all us hippies, are here for you whenever you decide to come back for a visit. :)

aftertherace said...

YOU ARE SO BRAVE! I could never just quit my job with no set plan for afterward; I'm too much of a planner. :P

Good luck to you on your new adventure. Hit me up if you move to SF. We can grab drinks!

Lola said...

holyfuckingmoly, so very excited for you! You are an inspiration.

suki said...

Hey brave lady. :) Wishing you all the best. You were made for this adventurous life!

asplenia said...

This is wonderful! MY next adventure starts with being inspired by yours. Wow! I've been following your blog for a while and I loved reading about you auditioning, it sounds like you've got amazing talent. I know you were knocked for a loop with the breakup but I'm glad you're shifting into a place that will let your inner self rise again. You go girl. :)

Bonnie said...

I am all about lighting things on fire and throwing shit out that holds bad memories. You have to get that stuff out of your life!
You are my damn hero for how strong you are. We all know how much this crap sucks. Men suck. Let's become lesbians, mmkaaay??

Get it girl. The world is out there, so enjoy every minute of seeing it and I will enjoy every minute of reading about you seeing it. :)

Also - if this adventure takes you anywhere near South America you are welcome anytime :)

Cordelia said...

I want to be like you when I grow up. That is all.

Kim said...

So proud of you for taking such a great leap! Wish I were that brave :)

Becky said...

I am so jealous of the freedom to drop it all and go in search of you. I have people depending on me, so my moves and searches take a little more planning and a lot more work (and sometimes? lawyers).
So, go, light the world on fire, I'll watch via the internet and cheer you on and live vicariously through your adventures.

Jessica said...

Fabulous! Thank you for agreeing on the awesomeness of high-waisted, wide-legged trousers, and thank you for being so open and enveloping on your blog - everytime I pop in, I come away refreshed and excited, somehow, even though this is so very much your own life and nothing close to mine. I am so excited for this adventure upon which you're embarking, and I can't wait to come along for the ride as you tell your tales!

Jessica said...

Good for you!! Realizing what you need, versus what you *think* you need is extremely difficult, since those two things can clash like whoa.

lauren lanza osias said...

being brave is contagious. so thanks for posting this.

chelsea! i need that extra kick in the ass to move to denver and start something new because i hate my job. you are a true inspiration. leap of faith has never sounded so good.

Twenty.Something said...

What a great post! Such a great story. I'm such a fan of taking leaps and being daring. Love it.

D. Marie said...

ROCK ON!! Love your Vday spa treatment and wonderful weekend you are planning too! THanks for visiting my blog love! <3

Joanna said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Chelsea! I'm a new follower:) Good luck with everything! Life is too short to not follow your intuition! xo Joanna

stacface1 said...

I have no doubt you're gonna kick SO MUCH ASS on the way, girlfriend. Cheers to your next adventure, indeed!

the gracious gaze said...

Wow! I can't wait to hear what comes next!

flipflopsintherain said...

This might seem weird, but I've been waiting for this post for a while. Traveling and living life on your own terms seems like such a big part of YOU -- let your inner spirit shine! Good luck with all of the opportunities in your near future. As always, you deserve them and you will rock them.

Felicity said...

What a fantastic introduction to YOU Chelsea.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving a note at my place, it meant that I could follow you back here.

And what a time to do it, just as you're about to leap into this new adventure in your life - I can tell already it's going to be one thrilling ride!

Good for you for pushing away the Gobblers of Good thoughts - Fear, Guilt and Anger and listening to the much stronger voice of your true self.

Again, so glad I found you as you're about to rediscover your 'self'.

Melanie said...

I saw everyday that if I could sell my house and quit my job and move away I would. I'm sure that if I buckled down hard core, I could probably do it in about two years. I want away from here. From it all. From the people, the places, the memories. I just want to start anew. I won't run from it but I will move away from it. :)

If you find yourself in the DC area let me know. I have a spare room in the country for some front porch and back deck wine sipping and I work in the city.

Go be a rock star and wear your rhinestones. I wish you all of the luck in the world finding all of you again. Can't wait to read your adventures.

Sarah Bianchi said...

I needed this so much today.

Since I was in grade school I've always been a girl with a plan, and a back-up or two. That's who I was, but life didn't think that's who I needed to be so my plans ending up not happening. And lately I've felt the need to just do things for me. Just me, and not worry about if I'll make a career out of it, or if I'm even going to keep doing it for more than a year.
This little type-a birdie in the back of my head keeps giving me worries about my life, and today (weird how it was today) I finally figured out that I shouldn't live with the what ifs and all that. I should just live.

So here I am. I've kicked everything to the curb and I'm starting anew. Maybe there isn't a solid plan, but I like this living in the moment thing.

Anyway, this post just kind of solidified it for me. Sometimes you have to take the leap. Start over.

You are an inspiration. You're a go-getter, and that's awesome.

Stephenie Zamora said...

I'm so happy to hear this. That sounds perfectly like you and I hope that it helps you find fulfillment and pure happiness again. Much love! xo

Robin said...

If your inner voice is telling you to do this, it is totally the right thing. Go out there and make it happen!

Melissa: Write it in Lipstick said...

Good for you way to take initiative, sometimes its hard but it looks like you are heading down the path you want to go.

Anonymous said...

You look great in those red slippers and the bounce in your step will only make the nightengales song more intoxicating. You can help me find my roar.lol

Fillyour sails and discover the ----sea.

laurwilk said...

You SPARKLE and SHINE, literally. I understand your gypsy ways as I have them too.

Have fun in NYC, LA or SF. Hopefully I'll be making my way to one of the three very soon as well.

Oh, and the little sis is moving to DEN in a month. If you find that you don't want to burn EVERYTHING, let me know and we'll try to take it off your hands.

styleforlife said...

WOOHOO, you rock sister!! I intend to do bigger things this year including expanding my business.
XXX to you! :-) Emily from EL Vintage

Carolyn said...

yay for being fearless and gutsy!

Gracie said...

That is amazing! It takes guts to do what you did and I admire you for having the balls :)

Ashley said...

you are amazing....as every on eof these comments has reitterated already. good luck to you - you have a fan group cheering you on! :)

David said...

You sure you're not having a quarter-life crisis? Do I need to put a call into Molly Hoyne Mahar of Stratajoy.com?

Am I the only boy who comments on your blog? Am I the only one that thinks that makes me strange and out of place here?

Am I asking too many questions? Ok, fine. Here's a statement instead...

Life is too short to be anything short of crazy happy. So go get you some crazy happy. Some delirious, ridiculous, overflowing amounts of happy. And then, tell us how it feels like only you can put into words. (Just don't stop writing, or then I'll be unhappy.)

The Many Colours of Happiness said...

Thanks so much for the comment ;) I love love love your blog! I know I don't know, but that is so fantastic that you have found yourself again! Go be crazy and make your dreams come true!! xoxo

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

David- HA! You and DSHAN ;) pretty much....I know I have some male lurkers, but they don't comment, it's sort of chick central over here. But you're never out of place- I love the male comments!

As for Stratejoy- I've already done the Joy Plan ;) Molly swooped in during my breakup and sent me a nice little package, it WAS incredibly useful....but right now, now I'm not going through any sort of quarter-life crisis, this is actually just ME.....I've done this a few times before, actually...and the adventure always proves to be the right choice. ALSO, NEVER SUCH A THING AS TOO MANY QUESTIONS.

and thank you :) Crazy happy is the goal, 100%- deliriously, drunkenly(thats sort of hypothetical) absurd amount of CRAZY HAPPY. Stop writing? Never.

Susan said...

You'll do amazing things. I'm so happy for you, this post was so energizing!!

Kathleen Carla. said...

I love how you started off this blog post with the picture of your couch, strange how simple everyday items can have so much meaning to our lives right? very inspiring post, and I wish you all the best in the future :). and thanks so much lovely for visiting my blog! :) i'm now following yours, if you'd like, you can follow mine too. hope you had an amazing day btw! :)

<3, Kathleen.

LifeasKristina said...

Ahhhh-love your blog!!!!! I just quit my job too-woohoo!!!! Live on!

Marisa said...

Can I just say... that this is one of my favorite blog posts ever? I can not not even begin to tell you how I relate to this. If only I were as brave!

Cafe Fashionista said...

This makes me realize that I have experienced too little adventure during the course of my lifetime - that needs to change immediately!! :)

Style Maniac said...

Now THAT'S a sofa with a story.
Looking forward to your next chapter.

lifeoflewwho said...

Well...your story with the couch ended on the side of a road. But the Opiem Den's story continues in my friends itsy bitsy living room- which is now dwarfed by the almighty couch. So know your be-loved couch is still loved and still doing her job giving us a comfortable place for late night snacking, mid-day napping, girl-talk, and pino.
Your blogs inspire me daily (i shall thank our mutual friend Ari for passing it on to me) and I am happy to hear you've found your nitch- for you, for NOW. I've struggled to figure that out myself- and uprooting from LA back to Colorado has been a journey.
So... as for the next adventure- you're freelancing and uprooting. I believe I will be doing just opposite... watering my newly planted roots and attempting to get into Medical School. Who woulda thunk? A flakey, floaty, nomadic dancer/ Artist turned science geek?? We shall see.
So lets all just leap and bound and see where the wind takes us! :)
Cheers.

Bri said...

I WISH I had the courage to quit my job, because I know all too well that it is the main culprit in my downward spiral of deep-darkness. But I don't. So instead... I've always wanted to start my own business, but couldn't quite figure out the "what to do" part. I recently had a brilliant epiphany to fill in the "what" question and I'm know working toward making my crazy dream a reality. Even though I'm still stuck in a job that I hate, I'm feeling better and better about life each day, just knowing that there is hope for the future and I'm actually DOING SOMETHING.

Thanks for sharing your story. So nice to know I'm not alone in this feeling.

michelle said...

can my adventurous thing be living vicariously through your adventures? i'm not much for leaping without looking, and i think it's fabulous that some people (you) are :)

terra said...

Hell yeah! Congratulations on grabbing life by the balls and taking the fucking leap.

WillJogForFood said...

That is so exciting! You have to live your life for you and it sounds like you have some amazing things coming your way :)

Randi Lee said...

ugh. This makes me want to quit my job and stay at home with the baby doing pointless crafts all day.

Perhaps I should grow a pair...

«·´¨*·.¸¸.*ÃMÃñÐå*.¸¸.·*¨`·» said...

You know what's crazy? I've been following your blog for a while, and totally saw this coming. We don't even know each other, but somehow I didn't see that job as 'you' and when you said that more drama came after the couch, i was thinking "omg she totally quit her job"! While it's not right for everyone, I commend you for having the balls and wisdom to make the change you needed. It will give you the freedom and flexibility to do what you really love and explore yourself and this world! I hope I'm not sounding like a weirdo. I adore your blog, it's always inspiring and you somehow manage to post something that I needed to hear at that moment. I just took a sabbatical from my job after graduating to spend 6 months in Italy (or more, we'll see how it goes) to travel, write freelance, dip my feet into the acting scene here, become fluent in Italian, eat amazing food, have Italian romances, and try out some entrepreneurial and creative ventures that speak to all my talents and interests! Anyway, I'm normally based in Toronto so would love to meet up if our paths ever cross.. or if you find yourself in Rome/Europe this year, let me know! :)
love and respect for rocking on and always being true to the courageous superstar that you are! xoxo

Enjoy the lovely, levitation in that leap. And the luxury into which you'll land? The world awaits ~ xox Alexandra

hannahjustbreathe said...

I love that little leaping voice! Actually, it usually isn't so little. Usually, it is a great, resounding roar.

I cannot WAIT to read where you land.

Lisa said...

Ahhh. This is so inspiring. I love hearing about people who take these leaps of faith! I truly believe that if you leap, the net will appear. My life is about to change dramatically in a couple months, and for the first time in a long time, I'll have the space and freedom to really stretch my wings and discover who I AM, without the military limitations. And I'm so excited! Can't wait to hear more of your story and find out how everything goes! <3

Micaela said...

CHEERS TO THE LEAPERS!!!!

my next adventure isn't a fun one... finding a job in my new city ugh! so send me some of your sparkly-ness to me please? ;)

ps. thanks for joining my giveaway! your blog is kinda a big deal ;) so it makes mine feel special! xoxo

Tea For Two said...

Gorgeous story. You're an excellent writer, I enjoy the style. It makes it easy to get a sense of you from even one encounter with your work.

freckledk said...

As someone whose feet are planted a little too firmly on the ground, I admire your willingness to shake things up and embrace the uncertainty. I would bet it's one of your (many) greatest qualities.

Phoenix said...

HOT. Your attitude, you... hot. That's all.

Go get 'em, girl.

Fizzgig said...

This is inspirational! i have a hard time even staying the night away from home. I'm such a chicken shit!!!! Best of luck in your new adventure!

jamie-lee said...

I think it's important to make sure that what ever you're doing, it's something that's gonna make you happy - and it sounds like that's what you've done! good on you girl :)

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Love your writing! It is great that you have some wonderful adventures ahead! It is very inspiring :)

So - that's sorta like my favorite description of Boulder ever. Of course I'm assuming you were describing Boulder - because HELLO? Is there another place on earth that looks like Santa's Village with a direct line to the Buddha? I think not.

Good Luck Lady!

Sarah said...

You are so inspirational - I just discovered your blog after you commented on mine and I'm so glad I did. You sound like such a strong person, I'm going to definitely follow you from now on :) Follow me!

I can't say I have any adventures coming up - most of mine seem to be very spur of the moment and just happen - I'm a very spontaneous person :P

Erin said...

Thank you for this post. I have been feeling lately this life I am living is not for me. It's been over a year since I took a leap and lived the life I wanted, only to regress & move back home, realizing I was not quite ready for it yet. Now that I feel ready, where is my leap? Although I haven't quite figured out what leap I will take, I can feel my restlessness gravitating me towards it. I love your honesty & your grab life by the balls and conquer it attitude. Thank u again <3

Katherine said...

While I'm not able to be quite so free at the moment, I totally know the feeling and love that you're going with it! I can't wait until I can get this degree out of the way so I don't have to be so tied to one place. I may actually end up settling down anyway, but having school keeping me here is kind of driving me crazy!

If you end up in Sacramento at all let me know!

Q said...

Ooooh, girl, YES! Adventure! Hit the road of life and figure it out as you go! (It's weird how we connect sections of our lives with inanimate objects, eh? And soundtracks. I always have life section music that haunts me the rest of my life...)

You know your PK girls are behind ya!

pk2u!

ELLIE said...

You should sing this song: Linda Ronstadt "Different Drum". I've never heard you sing, but it seems like it'd rock.

~BB~ said...

you are positively dynamic. inspiring. amazing. vibrant. awesome. I've been reading your blog all. day. long. I can't get enough - all I can say is wow!

Dressing On The Side said...

good for you! from what we've read in the past; this sounds like a Chelsea move to make. You've got to fly with those wings you have and enjoy the view. Remember to share your adventures with us and good luck my friend.

Summer {athena in the middle} said...

high five, darlin. i am leaping slowly and along a straight line at this very moment. i am a little jealous, you took the full on leap! xoxox

jenbern said...

Thank you so much for your sweet comment, which in turn led me to your wonderful blog!
I really appreciate that you put this out into the world.
I see quite a few similarities between us, so I just want to wish you many many positive adventures off the beaten path. It is a wonderful place to be, isn't it?
