Warm and Chic

Friday, 8 February 2019








It is tough to stay warm and look good when it is bloody freezing outside. It is KEY to have a killer warm coat and this one is just that. I love that I look like Boot Foot in this coat. You don't have to wear an ugly winter coat to stay warm nor do you have to spend a crap ton of money either. This coat is from Forever 21 and is the coziest coat to bundle up in. With temperatures that we have been faces (-35 on average...yeah that's right) even this coat stands the test!!!

As the headline says, I have been giving myself a monthly mantra to tell myself everyday for a month. I have really been enjoying this because it makes you think that though everyday. Doesn't mean you always believe it at that time, but nevertheless I think it is a helpful tool for the brain and overcoming your own battles. 

So far we have had January and now into February. The mantras I have given myself for these two months are ones that are extremely important for me to tell myself as I have always struggled with my self-esteem. I recommend that you give yourself mantras too, you might learn something about yourself and/or help yourself with whatever it is that you are battling. I will continue to share each months mantra.

January - I am beautiful inside and out. I am worthy of love, I am loved and I love myself.

February - I am Enough!

Today marks one year from when I knew my life was going to change. It's a bitter sweet day for I know that it was something that needed to happen but still SO hard to do....and still hard to this day. 

But where there is pain, there is healing, where there is sadness, there is joy, where there is lose, there is gain, where there is weakness, there is strength.

So I am grateful for where I am now, even though the hurt still follows me because I can get comfort in knowing that what is meant to be is meant to be. I am right where I am suppose to be.

vul·ner·a·bil·i·ty
noun
  1. the quality or state of being exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed, either physically or emotionally.

Why can’t I be vulnerable?! 

I want to be vulnerable. But I find it SO hard. I think it would improve my relationships with others, especially with the ones I care most about. 

I tend to be less vulnerable with a significant other or good friend more so than a stranger. Why is that? I think answers to that could be that I am scared I will lose that person if I am too open. If I say something that the other doesn’t agree with, like or want to hear…that that could ruin and end the relationship. 

That is a legitimate fear for sure but it doesn’t mean that I still shouldn’t be vulnerable because after all, I am ME and if that person doesn’t stick around for me being me, then surely it wouldn’t last anyway and that person isn't worth my time.

I want to be vulnerable.

A Fresh Start

Wednesday, 2 January 2019








2018 was the hardest year of my life. Even though my sorrows won't go away over night, it is nice to know that a new year is here and hopefully with that some new beginnings that can ease my pain.

No New Years resolutions for me, just continuing on the path I was on to discovering who I am and doing things I need to do for myself to grow and move on. The pain has been needed in that part of the journey for myself so at least it has not been for nothing.

I am an amazing, strong, kind, loving person and I am worthy of knowing that and having others know that as well so that is how I am starting my year and hoping I can continue down a path that reflects that knowledge.

What do you do when you feel stuck?

I haven't learned how to overcome that empty, dark, lonely place.

I had taken 10 steps forward just to take 20 steps back.

How do you overcome when the majority of the problem is YOU!

Where can you go from there?

WOW. It's been a long time. I have not taken this long of a break from my blog since I have started in back in 2011. But sometimes life throws things at you that sort of shake your world and you don't know what is what. That has been my life lately, a lot of changes, a lot of up's and down's. But with all of that comes closing a chapter (or a few in my case) to make room for new ones.

I am still figuring everything out but I hope I can get back into blogging again. Probably not as often as I use to with not having a photographer anymore and being super busy in general but this has been my space for such a long time and I love this space this even after all this time.
