Happy Monday all!
Initially this was going to be a post about how who inspired my outfit but honestly August has been a shitty time for me. I dont’ feel like pretending to be alright when everything seems to be falling apart. I want to talk about being good to yourself when life hands you lemons and you don’t know how to make the lemonade. I’m here to say its okay NOT to be strong when you’re supposed to “stay strong”. It’s okay to bawl your eyes out. It’s okay to be alone and recenter yourself. It’s okay to hang out in your PJs and wallow just a little bit. It’s okay to eat your favorite comfort food during this time (yesterday I was like “fuck it” and ate two doughnuts). It’s okay to put yourself ahead of others so you can get back on track. It’s okay to lean on your faith and pray for clarity. It’s okay to seek professional help to assist you in navigating this rough patch. You are not a failure because you don’t have it all together. You are not a loser because your life isn’t “perfect” (trust me, NOTHING is perfect). Know that no matter what happens, this too shall pass.
Have a wonderful day!
