New Handbag, New Me

After my trusty two year old black bag from Target started falling apart, I thought it time to be on the hunt for a new one. A month and some change ago, I naturally popped into Target and ended up finding the bag of my dreams. Generally for everything I stick with the basics; however with this bag I'm pushing myself beyond that comfort zone. This time around I've opted for a bag a bit more trendy and preppy.

The First Day of Spring

I’m always a sucker for fresh starts, so when specific days roll around, I jump to use them as a starting point. That was the case with today seeing as it is the first day of spring. With that I turned to my trusty notepad to jot down different tasks I wanted to complete today in order to start this spring off right. My theme for this season is making the most of whatever environment I’m in, having fun and learning to be spontaneous, self-care, and working towards turning my dreams into reality. With this little list I created and completed today, so far I’m accomplishing each of those overarching points.

Sandal Wishlist | Target

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

With the temperature slowly but surely climbing and consistently getting warmer, nothing but spring and summer are on my mind. However, the dramatic reversion back to a cold snowy day today has made my already blazing spring fever spike. Naturally on a crummy day I resort to going to my happy place- shopping centers. One of my stops today included one of my favorite stores of course- Target. There I was overwhelmed with the new selection of shoes they have showcased for the upcoming season.

Learning to Leap

I absolutely should have posted this on Leap Day and as a Motivational Monday, but you know, school is a thing. For some, Leap Day is just another day. For myself it would’ve been just that if I hadn’t tried to draw inspiration from it. This inspiration came from the fact that I treated Leap Day like any other day; nothing special. However I should’ve treated it differently. After all Leap Years only occur every four years and that’s pretty special. Beyond that every day is special. And I haven’t been treating my time as such. As I thought more about this I realized I’m stuck in the middle ground between a rut and where I want to be: that monotonous space where you’re just going through the motions and not really living. Me being me, of course that won’t do. I long to live life to the fullest, so I aim to make changes that will allow me to do so. I aim to take leaps.
