Taking Time For Yourself

I honestly believe this have been one of the longest and most stressful weeks of my life. With two quizzes, three exams, several assignments, work, sorority events, and trying to get pictures in for my blog, I barely had time to breathe. However, it is so important to take time for yourself. What sounds so simple, is actually difficult to do at times. I personally know how easy it is to get so stressed out you never want to come out of your room. I used to do this all the time. I would get in moods to where I would never want to socialize, go to the gym, or do anything. Now, even in my busiest weeks, I always try to make time for the gym at least 3 times a week, go grab lunch with a friend, or watch an episode or two on Hulu. It makes me feel so much better about myself.

Life can really get to you sometimes, but you need to be able to take control of it.

Since I am constantly reading and studying during the semester, I don't read for enjoyment as much. However, in the summer I love reading. I am huge on romance novels. I am very basic when it comes to the books I read. Nicholas Sparks and John Green write my favorites. There is honestly nothing like reading a romance novel on the porch in the summer. I get carried away sometimes in the summer. I once read a whole book on our back porch in one sitting. I also really enjoy fishing, hiking, and traveling. It is just the little things in life that make me happy.

I hope everyone had an amazing week. For next week, I challenge you to take some time and do something you enjoy. Find a hobby. Go for a hike. Read a book. Grab lunch with a friend. Hit the gym. You only get to live your life once, so actually ENJOY it. Let me know if and when you do through any of my social medias. I would love to hear about it!

Also, my outfit details are on the LikeToKnowIt app and website on my account. You can also click HERE or any of the pictures above to look and/or shop the outfit.

I have been working really hard on setting up my YouTube channel. I am so sorry for the delay, but I want it to look very presentable. Hopefully, I can get up my first video by this week. It will consist of a review/try-on haul for SheIn, so get excited!

As always, don't forget to follow me on all social media handles!
