I have been in somewhat of a funk lately and contrary to what I post on IG, my life is pretty routine & not very exciting. So this past weekend, I decided I wanted to dress up a little & just take some pictures for fun. I’ve been having a lot of things happening/changing that have significantly brought down my mood. It can be very easy to start thinking negatively when so many bad things happen to you, but one thing I really try to remind myself is that nothing lasts forever. You can have a bad day, week, month, & even a bad year (2016 was a terrible year for me)… but it does not make life bad. A little while ago, I wrote about how I did not want to let the world make me cynical and ever since I wrote that, I have really started evaluating why it is I feel or act a certain way in many situations.
I realized that in many times I never really let myself fully heal from certain events or incidents. This in turn makes me vulnerable to reacting negatively if/when that same situation or something similar occurs. This is kind of self-explanatory, but it’s like I finally understand it. So now that I know that about myself, I came to the conclusion that my life is not that bad. I’ve had things happen to me that are bad (some very bad), but they didn’t stop me. And when I actually take the time to heal and allow myself to hurt from the situation, I don’t feel nearly as bad if something else takes the wrong turn.
Just last week I was pretty sad and instead of pretending I was okay, I let myself cry and feel my emotions. I kept telling myself that I would not always feel that way about the situation, which really helped. And by the end of the week, I truly believed that I would be okay. I’m still kind of sad, but I know that this feeling won’t last forever. Nothing really does honestly. This can be viewed in a good and bad way. The bad being that not all relationships will last forever. People come and go from our lives, which is why we should cherish the moments we have with our loved ones. But on the good side, we know that no matter what happens in life, bad days won’t always stick around. Just comparing my life to the way it was a year ago proves to me how true that statement is. And that alone just makes me feel so excited about life. Also, there is no reason to stressing about life & what will happen next. God knows what He is doing & fully trusting Him is so much easier than worrying all the time.
Anyway, I hope y’all enjoy these pictures. After the week I had last week, it was so nice to dress up for no reason and wear a pretty dress just because. I have all my outfit details linked (as per usual). I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend & thank you for reading all this week while I caught up on my posting.
Thank you for reading,
bisous bisous ♥
