I mentioned on my Instagram the other day that often times our social media, and blogs for this matter, only show the highlight reel of our lives. This is obvious because who thinks of whipping out your iPhone and snapping a photo when you’re knee deep in kleenex or pushing through a long workday. Although, that might not be a bad idea for a quick reality check!
One thing about me is that I like to keep things 100% authentic. In the spirit of authenticity, this past week has been pretty bad. From getting the flu, adding in a sinus infection, laryngitis, long work days, hours at the doctor’s office, and some sad news about my Opa, it ain’t been great. I definitely hold this in perspective, knowing that there are many people dealing with far deeper and more traumatic struggles than this.
However, during times like these my family has always taught me to accept the situation and then be strong and put on a cute outfit! Or maybe they meant put on a brave face… Whatever the case may be, a cute outfit always does it for me!
If that doesn’t help, watching this Milan flash mob of “I Will Survive” might do the trick!
