Can you believe it’s the end of October already??? That means we have two more months of 2017, along with Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas and New Years, and man has the time flown by. I remember it being New Years Eve like it was yesterday and I’m about to experience it all over again. The holidays are swiftly approaching us as stores are preparing their Christmas sections already and I’m not sure how to feel D;
Do I feel like I accomplished any ‘goals’ within these past 10 months or has it just all been a blur….? I didn’t think it would come this fast so I just took life day by day and didn’t worry about the next. I told myself I wanted to travel more, since I graduated in December and had nothing holding me back, to finally start this blog I’ve been ACHING to do for several months, to be more in the present and not worry so much about the past and most importantly….. TO.JUST.BE.HAPPY. To be grateful for everything I have in my life and the people I surround myself with to make me the best person I can be. To be loving and caring to others and treat everyone how I would want to be treated.
And for the most part, I’ve done just that. I’ve gone out of town pretty much every month since the year started, whether it was for a music festival, concert, or leisure trip, I somehow found a way to just go. Of course worrying about having enough money on each occasion was stressful, but I would always pull through and enjoy myself because I feel like this is my prime time for traveling. I want to be able to travel as much as I can before I settle down and won’t be able to just go when I please.
As for this blog, it’s been a journey. I don’t post as much as I would like but when I do, man I feel so good on the inside because this is something I can say I started on my own and I put in the effort to make it the best it can be. Whether it be taking quality pictures or making sure my writing is up to par and lengthy just so it can be eye catching for someone to read and enjoy. I’m faaaaaar from where I want to be in this world but I can say that I am thankful for everything that’s happened to me thus far.
This was suppose to be just a cute set of pumpkin patch pictures I took for the Halloween season along with talking about how close the holidays are, but it turned into a rant/what’s been on my mind lately. 2016 wasn’t the best for me and I can’t say 2017 was that much better, but I did have more ups then downs this time around.
I go through seasons where I’m on a high and inspired wanting to do what I enjoy one day and then so down and uninspired the next that I shut everyone out until I can grasp everything that is going on in my head. I know I’m not the only one that goes through this, but sometimes I still feel alone…. Like I can do better. Like I can be better.
You are your own cheerleader and biggest critic.
You just want to be proud of yourself and want what’s best for you. But what I’m trying to say, for myself and for others, is try going into every situation with a positive attitude, even if you messed up b i g t i m e, but eventually, everything will be okay. Put good energy into the world and it will make its full circle back to you. We are all human which means we make mistakes, but those mistakes don’t define who we are…who YOU are. Time heals all and I’m slowly still learning that. Just keep your head up, sis. You got it. xo
