Today is the last day of April! HOW CAN THIS BE?  I guess time flies when you are having fun, right? If you follow me on instagram, I am sure you have noticed a resurgence of posts.  I gave up all social media for lent and though the first week or so was a bit challenging, I am happy to say I think it was a really good decision.  Sometimes we get so caught up in what others are doing that we forget to do for ourselves and worry about our path and where we want to be/go.  You might start to see some different insta pictures from me, and I hope it doesn't deter you from following.  If anything, over the past six weeks, I have realized that I have to be 100% myself and be OK with putting that out there.  I know I catch myself worrying about losing friends or followers or even having people judge me if I put a certain topic or picture out there. But I have realized that being unapologetically myself has actually made me happier and more driven.

I'm a worrier and someone with a very wild imagination, so much so that I sometimes think up these crazy scenarios with just the smallest bit of information.  I start to think the worst and prepare for that. Taking a social media detox, if you will, allowed me to really think about how I view myself and how that affects others opinion and treatment of me.  And boy are they intertwined!

Nothing changes overnight, and I will probably always worry a bit about certain things, but basing your happiness on someone else or their opinion of you, is the worst thing you can do (trying to take my own advice here!) Happiness is a choice, so make sure you chose it as often as possible. You never know what can happen if you say yes to something you are scared of or are afraid to do. It could lead you on a great adventure and who knows what could happen!  It's scary to not know what lies ahead, but it's also exciting to see where life takes you sometimes. If I had let fear get the best of me, I would never have moved to New York!

  1. I sometimes wish I would take a little break from social media… It's the first thing I do when I wake up and the last thing I do before bed. Doesn't seem right, does it?? Maybe just taking off one day a week would be a happy medium. Also agree with you that happiness is a choice!! Happy Hump Day!! xo Britt
