Thank you for tuning in to my first blog! If it’s not your jam, that’s totally fine, just please do not tell me that – that’d be a Barb move (I call Karen’s, Barbs. Looking at you, Barb Weber!)
I recently realized I measure success by productivity – there’s quite a bit to unpack in that statement. However, I am guessing a lot of people feel that way. You get the A, you tone your thighs, take the perfect pictures, earn the degree, book the vacation, finish the laundry, and you’re left wondering what’s next. At the end of the day, you reflect on how much you accomplished rather than how happy you were. How exhausting and also, how relatable! There is so much comfort in similarities, and that’s why I started this blog.
If you start the day spilling your iced latte and can’t contain the tears, know I’ve been there. If your first kiss misses your lips or clunks your teeth, accept it happens. If your pants don’t fit after Thanksgiving, remember ours whose do are 100% jeggings. If someone asks if you changed your hair, and doesn’t compliment it when you confirm, have confidence that you’re rocking a Hannah Montana switcharoo. When you finally unwind – and hopefully uncork – for the night, realize that you crushed the day! Because when all the chaos is said and done, all we can do is shake it off and wonder,
“so, like, now what?”
Hopefully, some of these blogs remind you that we are all human, encourage you to take a breather, provide decor inspo, or work as entertainment in the Starbucks line – or at the very least, help me feel a little more productive.
Blogs will be posted for the remainder of this week as a kick-off! Then, every Monday, I lack motivation or am intensely dancing to One Less Lonely Girl eagerly awaiting the latest episode of The Bachelor – so I thought that seemed like a great day for a blog post. Thursdays are also amazing because we’re gifted with food deals, and TGIT TV shows, so Thursday’s too! I tend to ramble and give way too information, so if you missed that: blog posts are every Monday and Thursday at 7 am!
In the meantime, browse the site for more information! I hope you stop by again, but if not, battle life’s Barb’s with grace, know we’ve all been there, and always remember Elle Woods wise words:
“And most importantly, you must always have faith in yourself.”
