Monthly Thought/// February 2019

Hello, I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday so far. Today’s post will be bringing up a series I tried to have on my blog last year (however was only for May of 2018). Anyways, moving forward throughout the year I will be doing a series on my blog called “Monthly Thought”, each month I will be posting a blog entry of what’s on my mind currently or something that I feel needs to talked about. This will be a way to express myself through words and connect with my audience. Through these “Monthly Thought” posts, I will be conveying my vulnerable side in my writing, that typically does not get shared often.

Lately, I have been having this insane amount of gratitude in life. I have came to the realization that things in life are not as always complex as they seem to be. As the state that I am currently in, I can say that I am no longer feeling hopeless as I used to be, and now when I look for happiness I look for it in the smallest of things that I appreciate. I used to believe happiness derived from a person (whether that be a S.O, friend, or parent, etc.), a specific thing, or even a job. However, I find that happiness is something that comes from within and although it is not necessarily the actual feeling of happiness, it is the feeling of content and/or satisfaction. I used to suffer from severe depression, to the point where it affected my life through my relationships with others, my academics, and even my relationship with myself. It has been a long time since I have felt true happiness, and although there has not been many, I am incredibly grateful for the happy moments I did have. Occasionally, I feel depressed or I have a few weeks randomly where depression decides to creep up on me, and although it sucks, it is an improvement from the past. I cannot say that I am happy or in other words completely content, but at least I am no longer sad. Slowly, but surely I am making progress to my well-being and through practicing gratitude, I am able to appreciate more in life. A question I want all of you to ask yourselves, how content are you with your life currently, and are you incorporating gratitude into your life?

This was a very random thought, but it is something I wanted to get off of my chest and talk about. I hope in someway this post gave you insight or gave you a new perspective to look at. I promise next week’s post will be much more lighthearted.

Chit-Chat with Me. /// July 2018

Hi everyone, it’s been a long time since I’ve wrote a blog post and I’m very sorry that I’ve been MIA for over a month, so much has changed the past month. Unfortunately, a couple weeks ago I resigned from my job due to many personal reasons, and it was a bit tough at first, however I’ve dealt with it and moved on.

Also to be quite honest, I lost a lot of motivation to write on my blog the past few weeks, it felt forced and I do not want to put out content if it’s not my best work. More recently, after having some time to reflect my life, I realized how much I missed blogging and how essential it is for me to blog. This is a creative outlet for me, and when I blog, I feel empowered that I am able to share my thoughts/info into the world. Therefore, I will be back to blogging for sure once a week, hopefully twice the next couple of weeks before I start college. I begin college in late August however I move in mid-August. Another few updates with you all is that I will be going on vacation to San Francisco in a couple of weeks, which is very exciting for me, since it’s my favorite city (outside of Chicago of course!). Lastly, before I finish this post, I just wanted to give you all the run-down of some of the next few posts I plan to write next (in no specific order):

  • Favorite Makeup Brushes
  • A Traveling Post
  • Spotify Playlist
  • Highschool Tips/Tricks
  • A Food Truck review

Monthly Thought//// May 2018

Hi everyone, today’s post will be a new series I’m starting on my blog known as my “monthly thought” that has been on my mind for a sometime now and will be throughout this month. A little of a different post, more personal than my typical blog posts.

Okay, wow I honestly can’t believe that it is May of 2018 already. I feel like new years eve was not that long ago, but boy am I wrong. It seems like these past few months went by way faster, because I was off from school my senior year 2nd semester only taking online classes. As I get closer to my graduation date, the more anxious, I get. I should be excited right? Which do not get me wrong, I’m happy to leave high school, it’s just complicated with the way I feel (will probably explain in another post). Besides actual graduation itself, it’s unbelievable to think that I’m going to be starting college late August. That’s pretty mind blowing to me and I’m very excited for a new chapter of my life, I am just afraid of change. I always have been and will be, good or bad. I turn eighteen in August, therefore I will be an actual adult and that somewhat terrifies me (I know that terrifies a lot of people). For quite some time now, I’ve been feeling nostalgic, reminiscing past memories, and dreaming of what if my senior year turned out how I actually pictured it. My goal for this month is to calmly accept the things I can no longer change“. Easy said than done, but that’s why I’m making it a point to challenge myself, with this mantra for the month.

Hopefully you enjoyed this personal post, it was just a short post to write down my thoughts and how I’ve been feeling lately.
