It’s officially the WEEKEND! If y’all hadn’t gathered it already from my last blog post, this week has been absolutely crazy for me. I’ve had quite a few highs and lows, but I’m so looking forward to a relaxing weekend to regain my energy.
One thing getting me through crazy times is reminding myself how important it is to have positive energy throughout it all. I’m a part of a Facebook group for rewardStyle bloggers where we can chat, ask questions and give each other advice, but often conversations become centered around struggles and annoyances of the blogging world. One amazing lady decided that enough was enough and created a new thread within the group encouraging everyone to share their “wins” of the week instead. It quickly filled up with comments of joy and mutual support for even the littlest of things–and it really made my heart happy. (One of my wins? My first photo ever on Instagram to hit over 1,000 likes!) It’s sounds so simple but is so crucial to surround yourself with supportive people, and sometimes, to have courage to step in and be the light to remind others to focus on the good in the midst of everything else, even if it’s nothing necessarily life-changing. (Hello, self: I just wrote about this not even two weeks ago! See #25 for some tough love).
I also wanted to share with y’all this look that (speaking of wins) makes me want to happy dance when I put it on. I just adore this little boutique called Shop Maude where I shop for a lot of my clothes online. Because they’re run boutique-style, you usually have to act pretty quickly to get what you want, but they have so many cute, unique pieces you won’t find anywhere else. Plus, most everything is under $100 with only a few exceptions! I need this darling spring dress in my life and definitely am going to have to scoop up these high-waisted shorts before they sell out! There’s something about the littlest things like finding a comfy pair of jeans you never want to take off, or the most rockin’ pair of boots you’ve ever owned that can make your confidence soar.
Here’s to the weekend and celebrating the little things!
