Happy Friday!! AND Happy National Coffee Day!! (WaWa has free coffee today)
It's finally starting to feel like fall and I am SO happy. Something about clean crisp air can change my mood in seconds. Having the windows open in my apartment with fall candles burning is the epitome of my happiness right now!
Writing this post today really for my own personal good. When I started my blog I had the intention to write about everything, the good, the bad, the honest life things, and the materialistic things. Today's thoughts are focused on the "honest life things."
So.. honestly.. life lately has been HARD. I feel like I have to share these emotions because I don't want anyone to think that I'm doing it all, and I'm doing it well- my Instagram does not show my struggles at all! The truth is, is that the past several weeks have been absolute non-stop and at times it's so overwhelming that I don't know how I'm going to complete all my assignments, study (and do well), exercise, answer e-mails, get content, edit photos, respond to comments and messages, eat, and/or shower! I change my to-do lists about three times a day! It's absurd and right now I am at my breaking point (hence this post).
Yesterday I didn't have class (thank goodness) so I had the day to rest and reflect. In doing so, I was really able to think about everything that has been overwhelming me and prioritize them. As hard as it isto say no to things, especially when new opportunities are knocking on my door, I know I need to say no. Our health and sanity are most important, and sometimes we need to check in with ourselves and realize that what we're doing is actually not bettering us.
I think these overwhelming periods come in waves but you need to know how to overcome them and keep moving forward. It's important to stay focused, be kind to yourself, and know that you will come out stronger!
Everything is linked below! Overalls and flannels are a staple for the fall and are so easy to throw together if you're ever in a rush! Soludos or converse are a perfect shoe for a look like this!
Sharing these thoughts because I know I can't be the only one feeling like this! So, If you're feeling overwhelmed, don't let it debilitate you! Rest, take control, and prioritize what is important right now. Take each day as it comes and always always treat yourself right!
Have a beautiful fall-filled weekend!
