Embracing The Good
If you could see me on any given "going out" night, I would say there's a good 75% chance that I am wearing something VERY similar to this outfit.... I always go for a cool tee, black skinnies and some sort of booties, and then ACCESSORIZE with anything from belts, lipstick, jackets to really dramatic earrings. It's the easiest base to start with (and one of the reasons I have accumulated quite the collection of black tees)
My life is good. Really, really good. I don't say that to brag or anything, but for so long I put the good as mediocre and never really appreciated it as much as I should have. I have started my senior year of college and I am working on a project that is so important to me. I don't hate the way I look anymore. I haven't been picking myself apart. I am standing up for things I really believe in and I haven't let my opinions just slip by. I have been waking up so excited to dive into my day and I will not let this chapter of my life go by without extreme gratitude on my part. I want to appreciate exactly what I have, because it's a honor to have it. I can easily lose everything at the drop of a hat, I want to experience my pure joy when I have the chance to, instead of wishing for it later.
I have had an extreme case of writer's block as of late, but yesterday me and my best friend were talking about how much personal growth we've experienced and how much we feel like we have matured just over the past few short months. The same things just don't effect us like they used to. I know for me personally, I would need constant approval and affirmation in any part of my life to thrive, but now my opinion of myself and the things I created are good enough for me. And living like this is sooooo friggin chill. Haha. Plus, it's nice because it's making its way into every aspect of my life. My relationships with people surrounding me are better too, I'm not constantly on the search for attention but rather good conversation, a fun time, an adventure. Anyways, I guess I never realized what the term "comfortable in your own skin" means until now.
I know this is ramble-y and random, I am an exhausted, happy lady. Exhaustion is just an accessory to the happiness I have.
