Well hello there!

I hope you all are enjoying your mid-week! As for me, I definitely have been. 🙂

Today’s outfit is from H&M! ❤

I really love the style of this dress, as it’s very feminine. Paired with the shoes, I think the black adds a punch!

I looooove the little pink and burgundy floral print! And how the sleeves hang…<3

I paired it with my daisy headband. Nice touch, no? 😀

I’ll leave you with some inspiration, as I don’t feel like I’ve shared much inspirational writing lately!

The other night, I was talking on the phone with my sister about being in a good mood. I’ve been in a really good mood lately, not for any particular reason, as nothing different has occurred to make my mood this way. So with this in mind, I’ll elaborate!

I told her one thing that makes me feel really good about life in general is keeping a gratitude journal. I write down everything I currently feel grateful for, and it gives me an appreciative outlook. I do mean everything – even down to being grateful for a cup of coffee and writing in detail what I enjoy about the taste of it. The tiniest things do count!

Because you know what? I guarantee if we suddenly didn’t have the tiny things we take for granted, it’d become blatantly obvious that it’s gone. Then we’d think, I should have appreciated it more!

I didn’t sell my sister on the idea of a gratitude journal though…she didn’t seem too impressed. LOL!

Being happy with what I have at the moment also makes me feel good. Life can change in an instant, so I truly appreciate the quiet moments when I acknowledge and appreciate that my health is good, everything is calm, I have what I need, etc. We never know when something can change!

I hope this post inspired you! See ya! ❤

 

The Beauty of Gratitude

 

gratitude-quotes

Inspired by some other blog posts I’ve read today, I wanted to write my own post about gratitude. ❤

I think we all get caught up in our own mental-checklist of where we expect to be in life, what should or shouldn’t happen, and the typical expectations we set for ourselves. It’s good to have our own personal checklist because it helps to set and achieve goals, but we also need to stop and embrace what we currently have and be grateful for it, regardless of how behind or ahead we are on our journey.

So just a reminder to be thankful for the things you have – anything from the air in your lungs to your car, your job, the people in your life, etc! ❤
