this is reality.
messy bun, tired eyes + an ice pack on my knee... indefinitely.
after weeks (months?) of nonstop travel + chaotic schedules + pushing myself to the max - I’m getting the message loud and clear: slow the heck down.
Anyone else feel me?
If you follow astrology (or social media -ha) at *all* you’ll know that the past few weeks have been our fav time, Mercury Retrograde. As a Gemini - these times of year hit me real hard. Whether it’s oddly broken computers or hours-long travel delays, I constantly get the message from the Universe to stop, slow down + tune inwards.
But, nothin’ like this time.
After days of severe altitude sickness, a ski injury (😂😭) and who knows what else, I’m FINALLY hearing the message loud and clear.
Sloooow down girl.
So, if you’re like me and have a difficult time not doing a million things at once, let’s try it together this week. Here are my goals:
✨ don’t spread yourself too thin; feel GOOD saying no
✨ make time for lots of journaling + reflection
✨ check emails 2x a day (not hour) ✨ take one day off social media / technology for real
Any other ideas?! Share ‘em below! And let me know if you’re down to chill out + practice slowing-the-heck-down too 🙃 happy Monday loves - let’s help each other be more intentional this week ( + forever) 🥰💕
When Preachers get transparent during the message. Please take 5 mins to view this video. I shared one of my struggles with suicidal thoughts and how I need to stay planted by the life giving rivers of water provided by Jesus Christ. This was the end of the message but it provided so much freedom this day. I want to share with you to let you know you’re not alone! God sees you, and is concerned about you! Mental health is important, and make sure you are taking care of yourself! If no one has told you I love you! ❤️ Share with someone who needs to hear this!
I love this quote from my latest read, The Outsiders. This quote makes you really think no matter who a person is, rich, poor, etc. We all see the same sunset; we are all humans. In the book the main character is starting to see the rich kids as being more than just Socs, or rich.
QOTD: At what age did you read the most? I am starting to read a lot now, but when I was in 5th and 6th grade I read all the time!

Whatever your situation right now,
You have to remember:
You never walk alone.. You are unique and there is a plan for you to live it,
Take all the necessary experiences you need to move on with your life.. Have faith and trust the process☺
I got tired of waking up sick as hell and unable to accomplish anything, of all the regrets that kept piling up, of being completely unreliable and irresponsible.
I got tired of hurting myself.
Tired of embarrassing myself. Tired of ruining relationships.
Tired of disappointing myself.
Tired of the continuous self-sabotage.
Today I woke up hangover-free for the 772nd day in a row. And over the weekend, I had the breathalyzer device removed from my car, so I'm finally FREE.
