feeling blessed

since so many people asked, these shoes are from forever 21

I didn't even realize I needed a break until I was in the middle of one. I hadn't blogged for over a week before I realized I hadn't blogged for over a week. It wasn't planned. So much has been going on in our household, so many changes, and I couldn't focus properly on everything and before I knew it my blogging was put on the back burner.

But it feels good to be back! I have been making more of an effort to simplify and prioritize my life. Everything from that one junk drawer that always stays a junk drawer to managing the junk drawers in my head. SIMPLIFY has been my mantra the past few months and I can't tell you how amazing it feels to follow through with that. I feel cleaner, not just my apartment, but my mind.

Life just feels so good right now, and I have been really making an effort to soak it all up. I really feel blessed and I am so grateful. I love my job. I get to do what I consider incredibly fun work, and to top it off my co-workers are some of my dearest friends. It is such a great environment to be a part of. Trevor and I are so in sync and it has been great having him around more after being gone all summer. I am so proud of how hard he works and I love watching it pay off for him.

My friends are amazing! I feel like I have built such a community around me of great people that love to be incredibly involved. In one week I could be laughing my head off at dinner with girlfriends, to attending a Miss USA party that came with a crown and everything. Do any of you have a group text going with your friends? THE BEST. Nothing has made me laugh more. I am constantly doing spur of the moment things with my friends and it really does add such a fun dynamic to life. Having so much going on all the time in my social life has been a life saver during this law school experience.

I am just feeling so blessed in every aspect of my life right now and wanted to take the time to be grateful. I know we all have ups and downs in life, and I am just enjoying my current "up." I can't thank God enough for all the many, many blessings. I have really come to this place in life where I am so fulfilled emotionally that I want for absolutely nothing. It is so peaceful and I have never felt quite like this before, but I could sure get used to it.

  3. I absolutely love this! It is always important to focus on the positives in life and be grateful for everything! Lately I have really been focusing on simplifying things as well and just being a happier person and I think it has made a huge difference in all aspects of my life. I thank God everyday for his blessings!

  10. not a lot of people know this, but i haven't blogged or been on the computer or my phone the past 10 days because i got surgery the day after i got back from NYC. and it's been such a nice little break. granted, i was miserable from recovery, but not having to worry about this little cyber world was refreshing. i think everyone needs a break once in a while...

    and i'm so happy to hear that you are in a great place, girl! taking a moment and acknowledging that is super important, i think. it's the little things, right?

    xo,

  15. If you want your ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend to come crawling back to you on their knees (even if they're dating somebody else now) you must watch this video
