Life Is Tough, But So Are You

Hello Monday. I didn’t miss you. And I don’t think anyone else did, either.

There’s just something about Mondays that make you just want to go “ugh” and burrow deeper into your blankets the moment when your alarm goes off. Even if you LOVE your job, Monday…well it’s just tough. Which brings me to this week’s quote –

2017 life is tough

It’s important to remember that as humans, we often underestimate ourselves. It’s a very common thing, even for the boldest and most confident people at times. There are just things that make us doubt ourselves and our abilities.

But even more important, I believe, is that we are all stronger than we think. So when things get rough, we start doubting ourselves, and that negativity does absolutely nothing to help us. Period. All it does is give an opening to all of the other negative thoughts you’ve ever had of yourself. They’ll rear their ugly, ugly heads and make you feel even worse. You beat yourself up on the inside and before you know it you’re depressed. Worrying, stressing, beating yourself up…none of it helps solve the issue at hand, no matter what it is. There’s no getting around it.

So just remember something for me eh?

No matter what life brings, yes it can be tough and cruel and harsh. But you, you my friend are tough as well. You can make it through this. You will make it through this. I promise you.

How Far I’ll Go

For those of you that don’t know, I live in the central Florida area, and the entire STATE was “blessed” with the lovely Hurricane Irma. Though we were lucky enough to get the least of her torment (in fact, we didn’t even lose power) the past week has certainly been stressful and exhausting. All of my worry and anxiety over the week before last built up and I think finally released itself in a severe bought of fatigue all of last week.

So on top of feeling unbelievably exhausted, having a headache every day, and cleaning up our yard and everything after the fact, I just couldn’t bring myself to write anything or hardly post anything on social media last week.

This week, however, is looking to be a much better one. So let’s jump feet first into this week shall we?

2017 how far I'll go

This week’s was, obviously, inspired by the newest Disney princess, Moana. There’s really no telling exactly how much I love this movie, the characters, and the songs. This and Brave are definitely on my favorites list, right under Tangled (Rapunzel will always be my spirit princess).

I’ve been thinking a lot about how I want to do things here on my blog, so you can probably expect to see some changes come October. I’m not sure what, but I’m working on finding a way to come to a good life/blog/work/business building balance. I know, that’s a lot to juggle. But with the determination that I was blessed with and the support of my friends and family…well, there’s just no telling how far I’ll go. ❤

Life Gets Better

Oh, when will I finally be able to get back into the writing groove? Someday soon I hope. With September here and Halloween coming up, my mind is racing with a few nail art ideas, so hopefully that will provide me with enough drive to start becoming a post-writing-machine.

I often let myself beat myself up about not keeping up with everything. From work, relationships, friends, pets, housework, trying to eat healthy, and trying to blog and start a business….well obviously not everything gets done or taken care of as much or as soon as I’d like. Ever. So I allow myself to get caught up in everything I DON’T do, rather than everything I DO do. (haha. do-do). anyways…

Which has brought me to a little realization –

2017 life gets better

You can have a busy life, a crazy life even. You can complain and whine all you’d like about it being the way it is. But nothing, absolutely NOTHING will get better or change unless you do.

So this week I’m going to try to focus more on the positive things, focus more on the things I have actually gotten done and less on everything else I have yet to do. I’m going to try really hard to change the way I see things, because that has a HUMONGOUS factor in how I feel every single day. By bettering myself, I’m going to make my life in general a whole lot better.

Create Your Own Sunshine

I don’t know about you guys, but Florida has brought a lot – I mean A LOT – of rain to us this summer. Which, yeah I know it’s necessary and everything…but I find it to be a big pain in the butt. Nothing dampens (haha) my day like having to go to work in the pouring rain when everyone magically forgets how to drive and then trying not to get soaked between my car and the building. I have since decided that I need to live somewhere where there are still seasons (meaning there is snow in winter and the leaves change color in the fall) but doesn’t get too cold (that’s a no to you, super northern states) yet also doesn’t get too ridiculously hot, humid, or rainy during the summer. Oh, and it also has to be on the coast because I love me some beach days.

Basically, I want to live in a fantasy land. XD

So in this instance, when there’s so much dark and gloomy weather that often puts my mood in this weird sleepy funk, I was inspired to create this little quote…

2017 create your own sunshine

Try to make it your daily mission to make yourself happy in some way. Don’t rely on others, or the weather, to decide on your daily moods. Make yourself happy. Create your own sunshine. ❤

Always Believe

The first full week of August is officially here guys! We are sooo close to the beginning of Fall, I can almost smell it! Although, for some reason, I haven’t been able to quite let go of my recent obsession with pastels. From nail polish to QOTW art, I’ve just been surrounding myself with lots and lots of pretty pastel shades. This week is no different of course. 😉

2017 always believe

Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen. The anticipation of something great is an amazing and interesting feeling. Most importantly, believing that something good can come out of any given moment is a wonderful way to live life.

Have a great week everyone! ❤
