Go Your Own Way

Happy May! It’s all about renewal, choosing your own path way and moving on.

 

As we pack up boxes to leave college and fill up suitcases for much needed vacations, I know the one thing we’re all worried about in the back of our mind is “what’s next”? “Which way should I go?”

4 Things To Do When You Feel Hopeless

My senior year of college has never been so unsettling.

 

I’m only taking 3 classes (one online) with Tuesdays and Thursdays off and I’m interning remotely with Gorgeous in Grey. I thought this semester would be pretty chill. I thought I’d be sleeping in more (which is true). I thought I’d have a whole lot more time for my blog (false). I thought I’d just be freeeeeeeeee!

 

Well, it’s on and off. I’m super busy and when I’m not, I feel off because it’s like I should be doing something! Weird, huh? But through the many homework assignments and traveling to and fro from the city, I’ve just been going through multiple tests that were supposed to drain me. I’m talking physical, spiritual and all of that, people.

 

My recent obstacle has been fighting hopelessness.

Lessons My Mom Taught Me on Beauty & Dignity

My mother taught me to represent myself well at all times. Hair? Done. Face? Beat. Clothes? Ironed. Shoulders? Back.  Beauty tips came with the package of growing into my womanhood.

 

And as a girly girl, I loved it. Even the annoying parts.

 

If she saw me slouching, she’d just look over at me and I’d just know to stand upright. We laugh about it all the time because she still does it ’til this day!

 

When we need new foundation, we hit up Sephora together. If I’m pondering a new hairstyle, I scrounge the internet to find her the perfect photo. We send each other texts asking each other for advice on great deals we’ll find at the mall. (I’m a graduating senior from college and I text my mother multiple times in the day! And don’t get me started on our phone calls.)

 

While my mom taught me all the girl and surface-y stuff, the real foundation of our relationship are the heart things. She has always been reminding me of my beauty and worth every single day, showed me how to carry myself with respect and dignity, brings up my past accomplishments and then goes even further to encourage me about the promise of my future.

  • Raise your hand if this is your season of countless trials 🙋🏾 Life has been so real for me -- I haven't been in the mood to do a lot of things, let alone post on insta. But I had to check in on you guys. It's so easy to act like you're all good around others. I'm a beast at that -- I can't not smile when I'm around people! But how are you when you're on your own? When you don't have to pretend life isn't breaking you down?

Smile, not because everyone’s counting on you, but for the sake of you. Let your light be a beacon of hope in your storm. No matter the outcome, know that ALL things are working for your good and God's got your rainbow on the other side. // NEW POST on adornedinarmor.com ✨
