I’ve been relearning how to receive grace.
As senior year fall semester came to a close, I am reminded of all that was accomplished, yet all that has fallen short.
It’s so easy to get frustrated with ‘should’ve and could’ve.' But I have to constantly remind myself that I can’t do it all.
There is a time and a season for everything. Just as you give grace to others, give grace to yourself. Sometimes you have to put different parts of your life on the back burner and leave them for other seasons.
While I’ve poured myself into my studies and my work, I’ve had to remind myself that I can’t do it all. I can’t show up to every invite, I can’t be fully involved in everything and that is okay.
Day by day, step by step has been my mantra this season. Day by day, step by step. One thing at a time.
I’m not sure what season of life you are in. But, day by day, step by step and you will get through. Don’t be so hard on yourself and remember to give yourself some grace. You got this.
Along with a few other things in my life, this blog has been put on the back burner to more important and time pressing matters. But I would like to bring my blog back from the dead in 2019. But.. day by day, step by step. I'm going to give myself grace if I can't juggle this blog with my last and most important semester of school left.
Bear with me as I try to make time for my side passions while simultaneously being buried in work and school.
Now onto this outfit. This Yosemite tee was a Christmas gift from a very special guy in my life, more to come on that. I love the juxtapostion between a graphic tee and a structured blazer, so of course I paired it with my favorite from a past season.
I've also been living non stop in these Madewell high waisted jeans. They are stretchy, so comfy and I can dress them up or down very easily.
My bag was a gift from my aunt, who scored it at a flea market in New Hampshire. My shoes are a thrift find, along with my hat, that I can't seem to find a better version of nearly 4 years later.
My pin collection is constantly growing. The two I'm wearing today are new additions. The Christmas triangle pin I bought at a small shop in Long Beach called Port. If you've ever been to Long Beach during Christmas time, you'll notice the lighted Christmas tree structures scattered in the water in Naples. This pin was created to donate money specifically to those in need during the holidays. A large portion of the sales went to feeding the homeless in Long Beach. I love buying something that supports a good cause and I love Long Beach, so adding this pin to my collection was a no brainer.
My "designers rule" pin is one that I've had in my etsy cart for a few years now and I finally pulled the trigger and bought it. Especially since I'm graduating soon and becoming a real "designer".
