hello beautiful!!! it's been on my heart lately to talk about what love really is, what it looks like and why you deserve it, so that's what we're doing today!!
tonight was one of those nights where you cry in the shower about everything that went wrong today that transitions you into clouding your thoughts with every mistake and insecurity you've ever had while leaning your head against the wall of the shower.
hello beautiful!! in honor of school starting back up, i thought it was rather appropriate to talk about some habits i'm trying to get into for this school year. these are all things that i really want to prioritize, and i figure that posting them all over the internet will motivate me to stay accountable. it's my senior year of high school, and my goal is to enjoy it and live it to it's fullest potential. i've been pretty emo that this year is full of so many 'lasts,' but that just makes me want to truly make the most of it, and a good bit of these habits stem from that, so let's just go ahead and get into it!!
hello beautiful!! it is currently 12:13 a.m. and i am writing this from my bed after having a huge realization about my life and more motivation than i've had in forever. i was in one of those seasons where you get down on yourself about everything. anyone know what i mean? it's that whole thing where you get in a negative and unhealthy mindset that causes you to degrade yourself no matter how hard you try. it's the voice that causes you to question your worth and wonder why you can't seem to do anything right.
"here it is, a big, beautiful, fascinating world... Do something with it!"

good morning guys!! see what i did there? i love the mornings. i never used to be a morning person, and i'm still not one of those people who wakes up at 5:30 or something crazy like that, but i've learned that mornings are such a productive time for me, and i've learned to use that knowledge to make my life a little easier. i'm always exhausted at the end of the day, so getting everything done at the beginning of the day allows me to actually enjoy and spend quality time on the things i need two get done, instead of rushing through them so i can get to bed. i'm just going to run through my current morning routine with you guys, so here we go.
we need it. summer can be a time where we neglect quality rest. for me, i wake up semi-early, i go to work, i come home and hang out with friends until it's late, then i stay up for hours, only to have to wake up bright and early the next day. but lately i've realized the importance of attending to my need of sleep and rest.
so there's this country song called "woman, amen" by dierks bentley and one of the lyrics is, "but i need all the cracks in my shattered heart, 'cause that's where her love gets in."
the intention i set for the month, and pretty much my whole life, is growth. to me, theres nothing more important. it's a pretty vague word to have as an intention, but i think that's what i like about it.
