Happy New Year!
Hope you guys had an amazing 2015 and an even better 2016. So far my 2016 has been amazing and healthy. This year I’m putting all of my energy into my mind and body. Last year I let my fitness fall by the wayside and became really unhappy with what I saw looking back at me in the mirror.
Some of my 2016 goals are to:
drink a gallon of water a day
cut down dramatically on alcohol
get enough sleep
take time to sit quietly once a day
hold no grudges (this one is so so so so important to me)
what are yours?
This is a bit of a tbt. It was the hottest day ever and all i had was a kiddie pool so I made the best of it!
thanks AMICLUBWEAR for always sending me the cutest stuff!
I’m a pretty avid hiker so I was super excited to leave my little LA bubble and go explore the beauty that is Zion National Park, It was the most beautiful place I’ve ever laid eyes on. I kept stopping just to take in what I was experiencing.
Lately I’ve been trying to get my mind, body, and spirit in a positive and healthy place. It’s been really hard being stuck in the day to day of working a job that I don’t enjoy, not eating healthy enough, drinking too much etc… The routine of it all has made my anxiety skyrocket and is causing me to feel really unhappy. Taking little trips has been my therapy.
I’m so thankful that Chase is in my life. He gets me out of my bubble and we experience such beautiful places with each other.
Love + Nature = a happier me
Obsessed with this MOB swimsuit. I think I’m just obsessed with everything that Married To The Mob does. They do an amazing job at mixing fashion and female empowerment.
As you guys know, I’ve been stuck in a major rut for a while now. I haven’t been able to find it in me to shoot/blog and basically get my shit together. I have this want inside of me to but I’ve felt super sad and uninspired since I’ve started this new blog. I’ve shot a few things but haven’t loved them. So the other day I was walking, saw this red and white wall and I felt inspired again. I had a kind of epiphany, I CAN DO THIS. I can fucking do this.
If you guys have been knocked down recently please know that you aren’t alone. As far as I’ve come in life I still have major emotional setbacks. Just know that you can get up, even if it seems like the weight of sadness is too heavy.
You are stronger than your sadness.

song: Mapei- don’t wait
you will never be okay.
you will be okay.
these 2 sentences have kept me in limbo for months. Some days I wake up and feel good. Most days I wake up and feel fucking terrible. This has been the general flow of my thoughts since I was a child. The thing is, I know that in order to thrive and get back into a good place I need to do certain things. So I made myself a list and everyday that I feel bad I add to it because who wants to feel bad all of the time?
THINGS YOU CAN DO WHILE WAITING TO FEEL HAPPY AGAIN
Take a shower- even if you don’t have anything to do. when we feel depressed it super easy to stop caring for yourself. But its so important to do certain things so that your mind knows you haven’t given up.
Let the sun hit your face- I’ve spent too many days inside of a dark, lonely apartment. If you do decide to take the “stay in bed forever route” at least get up once, go stand outside for 10 minutes, get some fresh air, and vitamin D.
Lay down with someone that loves you- this has proven to be the most healing thing for me thus far. One of my best friends just had a baby and I take every opportunity that I have to go and lay with the two of them. Just surrounding yourself with love is so healthy for your spirit.
Tell yourself you will be okay (even if you don’t believe it) because the thing is, you will be. No matter how dark it is, it gets better. Some of us need more help than others and if you feel like you are that person theres no shame in admitting you need help and talking to a professional . Do whatever you have to do to take care of your mental health, it’s so important.
I read the most beautiful thing the other day and that was, ” slow progress is better than no progress” applying that to my life everyday is helping me get out of the dark, slowly but surely.
