Mid terms, work, and illness...oh my! I feel like whenever I have a bad day it can't just be one little thing that spoiled it. No when I have a frustrating day I feel like the whole world gets together and decides,"Hey what can we throw at her next?". Yesterday was that day for me. I've been scrambling to study for the multitude of midterms this week, my allergies have decided to hang out leaving me exhausted and achy, and to seal the deal I shattered my phone on the side walk. By the time I made it home I could feel the tears begin to well up in the back of my eyes...this day had defeated me. On days like that it is really hard for me not to pull the "why me?" card. Why am I not as smart as that girl? Why can't I take care of my things? Why isn't my life going like that? One bad day can send my mind completely out of proportion and begin to question every good thing in my life, and that is just bananas! If I have realized anything this year it is that God has blessed me so much. Who am I to bash all of that in one afternoon? He distinctly created each an everyone of us to be different. We have different strengths and weaknesses, different passions and personalities, and I for one am grateful for that. So many times I look at differences as a bad thing but in reality thats what makes life so interesting and beautiful. Be grateful for the life and attributes God gave you because it was designed specifically for you! Tomorrow is a new day with new challenges. Pick yourself up off of the ground, put a smile on your face, and know you are loved every single day by the creator himself. No terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day can ever take that away from you.
At the beginning of each season I always enjoy pulling out my clothes and seeing how new purchases can be incorporated into current outfits. I bought this jacket and turtle neck from J.Crew the other day and I was so excited to pair it with this wool skirt I purchased many years ago. I hope everyone is having a great week!
