BY THE STROKE OF GRACE


beanies: ASOS (on sale!) || sweater: H&M (similar here) || denim shirt: GAP || pants: Joe's Jeans (similar here) || shoes: TOM'S (similar here) || lip color: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Sultry (my absolute fav right now!)

Oh hey. No big, it's just 4:10 a.m. and I'm just chilling at jet-lag city right now. So screwed for work in a couple hours, but you know what? I'm totally ok with it.

I've felt an outpouring of blessings in my life and feel genuinely happy. I'm not saying that I'm going to stop working my tail off because I'm content with where I'm at. I'll never stop that. And I'm not saying this so I can put my great life on blast. I'm saying this so others can understand how changing a few simple things can have an impact on your life in a major way.

I love the direction my life has taken. It wasn't always like this but I'm happy to say that every single person in my life contributes to it positively. Let's be honest, that is not something that is easy to come by. Looking back on my earlier years, I remember being around people who made me feel lesser and breathed toxic air into my life. I just allowed them to stay time after time. I'm sure many of you know what I mean. The times when we can't seem to push people away who don't have the best of intentions for fear that we'll end up lonely or friendless. For those of you in this stage of life, please know that it will pass. The sooner you let go of the riff-raff, jankity people in your life, the sooner you'll find true happiness. (Pretty positive I just made those words up, but you know what I mean.)

As I lay in bed watching my husband and puppy sleep, so many feelings rush over me and I realize how far I'm come in the last few years. 

I've let go of every darkness and am basking in the light.

That's grace.
