Day 345: Being Brave (Or Maybe Dumb)

Last week I published a blog post that I never thought I would have the guts to publish. I feel like I spend half my time promoting my blog and the other half hoping that no one ever reads it. The past few weeks have been really tough on me and my family. I met up with a mentor to talk through everything that’s going on and she gave me the best advice. Right now while I’m struggling, I should focus on the things I can control: like eating healthy and exercising. I should spend time with my awesome fiancé and adorable dog. I should sleep eight hours and read books I like. Even if the ground starts to get a little unsteady, there’s power in doing the things I love. I’m not going to lie, lately, I’ve slipped with working out regularly and with having less than one glass of wine a night. I’m going to take control of the things I can and just breathe through the things I can’t.

These printed pants are glorified yoga pants, I swear! I matched them with this color chambray that’s also super comfortable.

Day 328: Useless Hands

Today I spent all day in bed because of the whole “my-hands-don’t-work-thing.” Now I’m officially caught up on about 80% of my shows and 100% of my sleep. Unfortunately my day was pretty boring, aside from the pain-killer induced daydreams.

Due to the whole, not getting out of bed/dealing with my hands situation, I’m totally in my pj’s. There’s something so incredibly demoralizing about L needing to put my shirt on, so I know I’m going to hate the next few weeks.
