I’m not gonna lie, emotionally I’ve been really up and down lately, and the last week I have been especially so, but that’s completely okay. Healing is a constant process, and sometimes it really does feel like you’re taking one step forward only to take two backwards. But progress is still progress, no matter how big or small, and there is always going to be some amount of pain in growth.
Because I’ve been feeling like this, I haven’t really felt like writing about clothes or fashion or any of my ‘normal’ subjects, not because they aren’t inspiring me (those things always will), but because it seems fake and superficial to speak about them when the way I’ve been feeling is really whats on the forefront of my mind. I started this blog to be my own place where I can share everything, and that’s what I want it to continue to be, not somewhere that I feel I have to only talk about certain things, and write in one particular way – because that will never be me. Like everything else in life I am constantly changing and evolving.
EDIT: I wrote this post around a week ago when I really wasn’t feeling my best, and even though in the past week I’ve started to feel so much better I still wanted to finish writing this and post it – even if it was just to put together a bunch of photos I’ve taken over the last few weeks.
I find that whenever I’m feeling a bit down and a bit stuck, and that’s how I had been feeling recently, I find it so helpful and in a way therapeutic to put it into writing. I guess it’s just a good way to get everything out of your head. Of course sharing it online makes me feel vulnerable, but I also think there’s strength in being able to admit you feel like shit, and let yourself be sensitive. Anyway, I think once again I’ve rambled enough so I’ll end this post with some photos from the last week that make me smile and remind me that life is actually fucking great, it’s just a lil tough sometimes.
