Side split jumper: Topshop
Today, I slept in and decided to have a 'typical' fashion blogger morning. You may ask yourself, "what does a 'typical' fashion blogger morning consist of?" Well to me, this usually means instagraming my breakfast (although I didn't today because it would look the same as yesterday), setting up my tripod, changing into some 'outfit of the day' (so I can hashtag #ootd on instagram later), pretending to read an old magazine as a prop, editing the photos and voilà! A new post has been birthed.
Anyway, an update about me lately...I must say my life has been the farthest from boring as it has ever been and I know it will only continue to be. If you look at it from the outside you most likely wouldn't notice too much exciting activity; just the same old grind - eat, school, eat, workout, eat, study, eat, sleep and repeat. (Yes, I eat a lot.) However, I've realized that you can choose what you want to see and once you choose to see your vision ahead, life just gets that much more interesting.
Different relationships I have with different people is something frequently fluttering through my mind. Questions I have for new and old relationships: Is this relationship worth pursuing? Why or why not? If it is, then how can I bring the relationship to the next level of intimacy? How can I love better? What can I do to communicate better?
What you are doing now may be preparing you for something in the future and you just don't know it. You never know whether the things learned in your situation now will become useful in the time ahead. Therefore, it may seem like hell now, but the knowledge you've acquired, the strength you've built and the character you've learned will never go to waste. So don't give up and don't give anything less of your best.
Resistance makes you stronger. Muscles need to be pushed in order to grow. I've often felt that just when I start to move ahead in various areas of my life (relationships, building character, etc.), then some crap hits the fan and I get pulled back while cleaning up the mess. However, I heard some words this past week that have totally shifted my perspective. "The more you pull back, the farther ahead you will go." Just think of a slingshot. Tension will just propel you even more ahead. I may not enjoy everything I'm doing right now, I may not be happy with the state of my relationships and I may need to force myself to do what needs to get done. But I will not give up. And even when I feel like I'm moving backwards, I'm actually preparing to jump ahead. I know that things will not get easier, but I will get stronger. I'm glad I've regained sight of my vision and stirred up motivation yet again. Life is never static, it only gets boring when you choose to let it be.
