New Beginnings

inspiring-life-quotes

There are going to be moments in our lives when life just gets in the way. At the worst possible times, the duties and responsibilities of life rears its ugly head, getting in the way of our hopes, dreams, and aspirations. Life can swallow us whole when we delve into its’ unpleasant traits. Losing ourselves by stressing over the qualities of life that we cannot tame. Could I use the word “life” anymore? It’s extremely probable! The reason why I bring this topic up is because lately I’ve felt the weight of my responsibilities on my shoulders. In less than 6 hours I will be on the road to southern California where I will start the first day of my sophomore year in college. I’ve spent the entire week packing, re-packing, and shopping like a soccer mom with anger management issues. This is one of those moments where I feel as though I’ve never felt so stressed our in my life (which only of course adds to my stress). I give myself anxiety thinking of all the things I need to do, want to do, and cannot do. But in my experience I’ve learned that you can only be responsible for the things that you have control over. While I’d love to move my one hundred pound suitcase up three flights of stairs in 50s styled dress and patent leather pumps a la Elle Woods (HA!), I’ll settle for my v-neck, cut offs, and converse. The thought of opening my already-ready-to-combust-at-any-given-moment suitcase just gives me a panic attack in itself. Not to mention the fact that I would look a hot mess! The rest of my week is going to be hectic, high blood pressure inducing, and highly emotional. No amount of preparation could have prepared me for any of this. Sometimes when faced with life’s obligations sometimes the best thing you have to do is go with the flow. I’m excited to see where this week (and this year) will take me. I’m hoping that you guys will be patient as I cross this new bridge in my life.

  1. This post will resonate with me for the rest of this week and possibly month. There's just so many stressful things happening...

    Where are you going to school here in SoCal (if you don't want to divulge on the blog I understand). Those first couple/few weeks are the worst - so much to get settled and not enough time.

    Hang in there and all the best this year.

    xoxo,
    Carrie

  3. I can definitely relate to how you are feeling. I've been going through those same feelings/emotions the last few months. And I'm still trying to work things out. I hope by the end of the year I will be in a position in my life that I'm happy with.

  7. I'm in between LA and OC near the beach - if you need anything let me know. I know that sounds whack since we don't know each other formally, but I mean it.

    Good luck this year!!
