One thing i’ve always known, but really realized this year,

 is that, everyone, every single person is fighting some sort of battle.

Some may be big, and some may be small, 

and some may be small but seem big to that individual.

But it doesn’t matter.

Something may seem super simple and small to me, 

but it could feel like the world is ending to someone else.

We all have our struggles, and none of them look the same.

This year I really want to try and keep that in mind at all times.

For whenever i’m frustrated with a friend, 

or family member, or confused by someones actions.

Instead of jumping to conclusions or assuming the worst,

I just want to remember and remind myself that we’re all human,

and half the time have no idea what we’re doing…

and half the time we’re just trying to make it through the end of the day.

Sometimes it’s hard not to make assumptions, 

or judge, or feel jealous, and that’s just human nature.

But this year my goal, starting today, is to see the good.

To fully embrace myself, flaws and all, and be thankful for what God has blessed me with.

To stop looking at others in jealousy.

To search for the good in every situation. 

To comfort my friends/family in whatever battle their facing.

To not compare peoples battles but help them overcome them. 

To trust God fully, and not constantly rely on myself.

To give back, to those who are in need and those who have given to me.

It may not be the very beginning of the year,

but it’s never too late for a fresh start.

Lately I find myself being stumped on what to write about,

of course I’ve always got my outfits to share – 

but I typically like my writing to be from me, something personal,

 and not just me describing why I chose my outfits and what I like about them.

So instead of blabbing about something random, I’ll get into the real stuff.

So, here we go.

Random but real thoughts – from yours truly.

Being an adult is tough.

Bills are like REALLY annoying.

The market right now for buying a house, UGH – don’t even get me started.

I’ve been feeling extra thankful for the health of my family & loved ones lately.

Sometimes I concern myself with how obsessed I am with my dog.

Making a baby is not as easy as your parents always told you when you were a teenager.

I’m sick & tired of Gods timing being so different than mine, 

but goodness I sure am learning & growing from it.

I think my caffeine addiction has randomly disappeared, like out of nowhere.

I got home at almost 8 last night and still cooked dinner for Kyle and I 

[that’s huge for me]

I want like 10 new pairs of tennis shoes, but I don’t really work out anymore so…

I can’t decide what to be for Halloween, think Kyle & I may be Jack & Coke.


I said I wasn’t going to blab and I totally blabbed, a lot.

but oh well, this little blog is mine, and I can blab if I want too. 

Every now and then life throws you a curve ball and you have to make really tough decisions.

At the age of 26 i’ve officially learned that life truly isn’t fair, 

and sometimes things happen… 

 People will enter into your life and completely alter it without your consent or control… 

or maybe you do have control, 

but you just have no idea why God placed them there or what their purpose in your life is,

Questioning if they are supposed to stay and be a big part of your life, 

maybe even your whole life…

or if they were always just supposed to be temporary.

I guess there will always be unanswered questions in these crazy lives we lead,

 and maybe it’s better off that way.

Shout out to Jesus. 

For loving me even though I fail Him every day…

For pushing me to make tough decisions and grow from them…

For blessing me with a TRUE friendship when I needed it most…

 For providing me with a husband that sees all my flaws and loves me the same…

For a family that supports every decision and goal I have…

 Going back to what I said about life being unfair,

maybe it’s only felt that way lately because i’ve been relying on myself too much and not on Him.
