It’s officially November, and I have been loving the sweater weather we’ve been having lately! The past couple weeks have been filled with so many experiences but I’m glad to finally back on the blog after yet another brief hiatus. I learned so many important lessons in October and I can’t wait to share them with you… So go grab a cup of coffee, cocoa, tea or whatever suits you and let’s catch up:)
Lesson # 1 Self-Love
As much as college made me believe that I’d love going out to parties and bars every weekend, that just wasn’t the case for me. I pretended that I was having fun, when in reality I was realizing counting down the minutes until I could be back in bed. Regardless, I keep telling myself that this was a part of college and I should be having fun. I let this cycle occur for awhile before realizing that I don’t have to go through all of this. If I prefer to stay in my apartment with cocoa and a good book, that’s perfectly fine. I find myself letting what other people think of me often get the best of me. Now I know that you don’t have to give other people the power to change how you feel about yourself. That’s what self-love is all about! It’s something I still need to work though- but I’m glad that I’m finally realizing what it means to practice it in my life.
Lesson # 2 Time
I used to think that I was always running out of time. I saw people accomplishing so much with their time, and found myself being jealous of not having everything together. I realized that just because everyone “seems” to have it all together, everyone is going through something. Just because someone is currently ahead of you, doesn’t mean that there is something wrong with your current position.
It just isn’t your time yet.
So instead of forcing myself to make it to a certain point of my life, I decided to step back and realize that my time will come eventually. It make take a couple days, weeks, or longer- but things will eventually work out. They always do:)
Lesson # 3 God Comes First
I understand not everyone who reads my blog is religious, but it is a huge part of my life, so I do want to talk about it. I will be honest and say my faith has been shaky these past couple of months. I haven’t been to church, and my bible has been gathering dust in my dresser drawer. Now, I have gone back to church, and have pulled my bible from its hiding place, I’ve realized that my relationship with god comes before anything else and the happiness that has come from it is something that is so much more fulfilling.
I’ve missed writing on here so much and you will definitely be seeing more of me in your inboxes(and that’s a promise!) I hope you all have a great weekend and I’ll see you back here very soon. I am so excited to start writing holiday content as my favorite time of the year(Christmas) and slowly coming upon us.
