I wanted to write this post today with some words of wisdom because we all go through days where we don’t feel our best; where we feel like absolute shit; where we feel worthless or “not enough” because society can really affect the way we perceive ourselves; where we feel lonely even though in reality, your best friend is only a phone call away.
I go through cycles of feeling down in the dumps to the point where I don’t’ want to get out of bed, to days where I feel so elated and proud of myself I could do a happy dance everywhere I go. But you know what? I don’t think it’s a shameful thing to experience this. Because it’s the hardest of times, the saddest of times and the most frustrating of times that toughen your shell to get you through even harder obstacles in life. And it makes the better moments worthwhile.

Below are some of my favorite quotes to keep me inspired and can hopefully inspire you too! x

This is such a beautiful and brave post. We all feel like this, but not all our brave to talk about it. I think it’s important there is more honesty and transparency these days because we all paint such wonderful pictures of our lives. And that it is not shameful to feel this way too. Mental health is something that has so much stigma around it, hopefully this will change soon.
In order the love where you are, you cannot hate the experiences that shape you- my favorite quote of all these. Thanks for sharing it with me. Yes we all have those days where nothing seems right, but it’s in those days that we must get up and keep going. This post was right on time. Love your outfit by the way- always so stylish!
