The other day when I walked into work and saw our new arrivals, it was love at first sight. This floral cape, with it's muted, vintage pattern and long silhouette screamed my name. I needed to add it to my wardrobe! I paired it with some leather leggings and sparkly booties, and put together my perfect Valentine's Day ensemble. So much love!
In general, there are "a lot" of negative things going on in my life right now. It seems nearly impossible to find a job, I'm having some minor health issues, things with Sean's family are still hard, personal hardships are going on with my extended family, and so on and so forth, and it just seems as if I'm living in a rut sometimes. My mom and I were talking yesterday about how easy it is to want to just vent all day about how everything in your life sucks... but you can't do that. You have to put on a happy face and live the life you're given with a positive mindset. Somebody somewhere has it worse than you do. You have to choose joy and happiness! You have to make sure that you're not focusing on the bad, but on the blessings that God has given you. Sometimes that's tough to remember, but once you try it gets easier and easier!
So when the rain comes... just put on some comfy clothes and step back, in your socks, for a little perspective. It'll get better!
