taking a step back.

so this weekend has been so busy and stressful and exhausting. i have a LOT of work to do, midterms are coming up, and i feel like no matter how hard i work, i'm only chipping away at a mountain.

i'm stressed about doing well in my classes and figuring out if my major is right for me. i'm missing home a LOT at the moment. and i'm still trying to figure out how to properly manage my time as a full-time student with a part-time job.

but then... i took a step back. i FaceTimed my mom, i laughed, i cried, and i realized that no matter how bad i think it is,  my life is pretty darn beautiful.

and for that, i am incredibly grateful.


  1. take a deep breather, sista :)

    life is pretty darn beautiful when you stop to smell the roses.

  2. You can do it girl! We all get a little overwhelmed sometimes but you'll get through it!

  3. This was an awesome post. Way to keep it real! I feel like this sometimes to!! :)

  4. This post is amazing. Love the positive from the negative! Keep smiling, dear :)

  5. perfect! I need to do that a lot - I get overwhelmed with the small stuff and forget the bigger picture.
