Sorry for today’s late post guys but if we’re being completely honest I didn’t actually have anything ready up until this morning. If we’re being even more honest I’ll admit that my head just hasn’t been in the game as of late. Don’t get me wrong, I love this blog and creating content for you guys so much but ever since Christmas I’ve just not been feeling myself. I know yesterday was Bell Let’s Talk Day but I also feel as though mental health is a conversation that should be talked about year round. As I’ve admitted before I constantly struggle with anxiety and sometimes depression. At times my anxiety cripples me and makes me feel as though I can’t do anything, I’m not good enough, etc., etc. I get inside my head and it really hinders my creativity and my ability to get shit done. I’ve tried to push and push myself to get going and I definitely have, but this week things finally caught up to me and I was left with the choice to either get my ass up and shoot this morning or have no blog post. I chose the former. While I’m proud of myself for still getting up and shooting these photos I still feel like I have piles of things I need to get done and my head is spinning just thinking about it. I know that this is my job and I feel so beyond lucky to have it but truthfully it’s hard to be “on” all the time, ya know? I hope this post doesn’t make you guys think that I am ungrateful or anything of the sort, I just wanted to share a few of my feelings because otherwise you’d assume that this was any other (late) outfit post…a happy girl shooting a cute look. And I guess in a way it is but every so often it’s important to look deeper than just appearance. Of course, I do still intend to keep things light around here because I know that this is a place to come to be inspired, I just felt as though it was important to look beyond that today so that you guys know that it isn’t always picture perfect around here.
