A Little Tougher Than It Is

I say it a lot in real life, but this blog has been really a journey for me in getting to know myself and gain confidence. Really, this past year has been a series of adventures in understanding myself better. I am finally understanding better on how to let go. I have a fairly (extremely?) type A personality and tend to really focus on things that don't matter and let them get to me. These photos are an exercise in letting go. After a bit of a stressful day with things at work, I decided I was going to find a bright place to take photos and just smile. Smile because there is a bright blue wall and it was so hot I had sweat dripping under my bangs but I had completely dismissed whatever had just gotten me so upset. So here's to you, little park with your blue wall and blog and blogging community in general for helping me become a better person.

Also...how have I never put these heels on blog? I love these things. They were the last thing I purchased in Cincinnati (other than my car) before moving here.

  3. Green is such a great color on you! Very adorable look!

    Sometimes it is hard to let go of little things --which is why we need to make sure we have an outlet to vent! Like um, shopping... ^_^ I hope your upcoming work week is more enjoyable than today!

  10. I wanted to get this shirt when I saw it on Modcloth, it's adorable! It looks fantastic with this skirt and these shoes ARE awesome. It's so nice that you get to use this blog as a creative outlet and a way to get to know yourself better. I'm starting to learn that blogs are really great in that way too :)
