Spring Chicken + Gratitude
I posted these jeans on instagram the other day and everyone freaked out! I honestly forgot just how amazing they are! They feel like sweatpants and are totally on trend with the baggier fit, I think everyone should own them! Also, we have been having some amazing weather lately, to where you aren't freezing, but you can definitely get away with a cozy sweater (except for today...today felt like summer!) I love this outfit, but I especially love that this is the softest sweater I've ever worn and I only paid $3 for it!! And I think it just SCREAMS spring, don't you agree???
I wanted to talk a bit about gratitude today, because recently me and my best friend have been talking a lot about how we just don't find negativity funny or relatable anymore. I will admit, I was the person that would make terrible jokes about dreading life and wanting things to end, until I realized that literally got me nowhere besides more negative and more sad. I am not trying to say that sadness doesn't exist, depression is a very real thing and if you have followed me for a while you probably had caught on that over the past year I had struggled with some myself (also, while on the topic, Jess in this video discussed mental health in such a phenomenal way, it really spoke to me, you should definitely watch)
But anyways, I am trying to extend gratitude to every corner of my life. Whether it's saying when a moment is good or when I'm really happy out loud or telling people in my life just how thankful I am that they are here. I am just trying to think positive thoughts. I always kind of skimmed over that piece of advice without ever realizing how true it is, because my thoughts are (mostly, I'm not perfect!) kind towards everything my life has been better and I have been kinder to myself.
So, right now I am so happy and one day when I'm not, I want this to be here to know that straight up joy is real. I am happy with myself, with my art and with my relationships and I am so grateful for that. I don't want to regret not loving these moments when I had the opportunity, so I am doing it now!
