Happy Fourth of July!!
I personally love the fourth of July. The fireworks, the people watching at big events, the sparklers, the cookouts, the family traditions & everything it is about makes me smile. I just got home from my local fireworks & I had the best view- i loved them! Every fourth of July my family goes to a parade on the Monday as well.
What are your fourth of July traditions??
It is also such a nice time to remember how lucky we are to live in America ( I know not all readers do, so sorry to exclude you!!). As cliché as it may sound, I really do feel blessed to live in a such an amazing, free & diverse country. Happy 4th!!
In other news, things have been going pretty well for me. Eats have looked a little bit like this (I haven’t taken many pictures to be honest, but here’s what I’ve got)
I also wanted to show you my favorite summer hair style lately- kind of blurry, but you get the point (I am so awkward with these kind of pictures FYI)
I don’t know about you, but I love the laid back look in the summer. I like having some natural wave, and the braid just adds something a little different!
On another note…
It’s funny because I keep saying i’m going to post more, but then nothing really changes. Part of the reason is that I’ve been putting too much pressure on myself with my writing. When I have been doing really well and feeling very confident/happy (in recovery & in life in general), I find that my writing and blog just flow. But to be honest, right now i’m kind of in a weird place.
I’m not unhappy at all. In fact, I can say that I’m pretty happy with how my summer is going. I have good friends to be around & I am taking care of my recovery stuff & am getting to spend a lot of time with my family. I guess A HUGEEE part of me just misses school & the independence, and the ability to meet new people at any given time and to do whatever I feel like doing that day. Obviously, this is somewhat true at home but in a much different way.
I think more than anything, i’m just a bit confused right now. I’m confused about where I am in my recovery, i’m confused about who my true friends from home are, I’m confused about how I went from being in a very serious relationship with my “best friend” to being totally, 100% single, and i’m confused about what I really want to accomplish from this time at home. I know i’ll figure it out, but in the mean time my inspiration is low in the blog-world. I feel like it’ll hit me though & i’ll get in a flow 🙂 (stupid writer’s block). All of these questions are things that I just have to more or less allow to unfold & I do believe things work themselves out in the end & that things happen for a reason. Ultimately, I think what I want is for this summer to allow me to go to school refreshed & confident in who I am and what I love.
I guess the question I want to ask you all is simply Where do you look for inspiration when it is running a little low?
Is there anything you’d like me to talk about on the blog?
I hope you all have a great holiday & spend time with people you love!!!
