This year has been one hell of a ride ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Looking back to the beginning, I can honestly say that Iโ€™ve grown so much. Thereโ€™s been a billion ups and a billion downs, and Iโ€™ve learned more in the last 12 months than I have in my entire life. I started going to a counselor, which is a huge milestone for me because Iโ€™ve always been scared to open up to a stranger about things I struggle with. I feel extremely empowered lately and itโ€™s the best feeling in the world. So hereโ€™s to you, 2018, you were shittier than I expected but in hindsight itโ€™s all been worth it. Thank you for teaching me how to stand up and take back control of my life, without the hardships I wouldnโ€™t have the backbone I do today. Idc if it sounds clichรฉ, Iโ€™m blessed. โœจโœŒ๐Ÿป โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #flashesofdelight #livethelittlethings #vsco #thehappynow #feelfreefeed #vscocam #thepursuitofjoyproject #dslove #abmlifeisbeautiful #seekthesimplicity #solovelysofree #sheislight #everysquareastory #abmhappylife #dshappy
Sometimes you have to take a step back from life and appreciate the magic thatโ€™s all around you.โœจ Iโ€™ll admit, Iโ€™m the worst when it comes to not knowing when I need to give myself a break. I push myself too hard, because I always feel the need to be productive. Lately this has resulted in me drinking excessively to avoid myself, and my responsibilities (not good ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ). Truthfully, life is about balance... You gotta treat yourself like someone you care about. Take time off for yourself, and show yourself more love. You canโ€™t pour from an empty cup. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #thepursuitofjoyproject #livethelittlethings #acolorstory #mymonthofsundays #morningslikethese #rsa_social #everysquareastory #solovelysofree #vsco #howihue #abmlifeiscolorful #theeverydayproject #dshappy #thehappynow #myunicornlife #abmlifeisbeautiful #howyouglow #rsa_vsco #theartofslowliving #feelfreefeed #darlingweekend #seekthesimplicity #speakyourtruth

๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป THIS POST IS ABOUT TO GET REAL ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป (but itโ€™s my truth, so here goes nothing) โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Duality has been a consistent underlying theme throughout my entire life. I donโ€™t understand why some people think you have to live your life on the far end of any spectrum; you can be emotionally strong, and still soft at times, you can be girly, but still like to get your hands dirty... you can be creative and carefree, but still analytical and organized. Iโ€™ve felt misunderstood lately (blame it on Mercury being retrograde the past few weeks ๐Ÿ˜…) and Iโ€™ve been struggling to find a solid support system. Itโ€™s tough being young, trying to build a life for yourself; while inside you really just feel like a kid with a drinking license. I just keep telling myself that someday the struggle will all be worth it. ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿป๐Ÿค™๐Ÿปโ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #theeverydayproject #speakyourtruth #acolorstory #myunicornlife #howyouglow #solovelysofree #rsa_vsco #feelfreefeed #rsa_social #everysquareastory #shared_joy #vsco #liveauthentic #thehappynow #chooselovely #rsa_ladies #sisterhoodovercompetition #momentsofmine #instalife #huffpostwomen #makeyousmilestyle #igers #livethelittlethings #livethelifeyoulove #pursuehappy #mystoryisntover #findyourwhy #lifestyle #liveyourbestlife #huffpostgram
