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.

    Thank you for keeping it real, it’s so easy to read your posts and look at the perfect pictures and imagine that you are living the perfect life, I sometimes avoid your posts because I feel too envious. I too suffer with anxiety and depression, and I know all to well that the struggle can be painful and isolating. My daughter downloaded today on my tablet an app called headspace and it’s for meditation, it only takes ten minutes a day and it’s free. I tried it today and it definitely helped me to relax and breathe a little easier. I also started a yoga practice to help me. Maybe one of these could work for you to. I wish you well, take care!

    • Hi Tracy! First of all thank you so much for leaving such a thoughtful comment, it means so much to me that you’d to take the time to write that and open up. I would never want anyone to think that just because my pictures look “perfect” that my life looks like that on a regular basis. Truth be told I’m the most disorganized person you’d probably ever meet and my life looks FAR from what I post on my blog. The point of my blog/instagram is simply to inspire but I would never want anyone to feel envious or think that’s what my life looks like all the time. Secondly, I so appreciate you sharing the name of that app, I will absolutely download it. I could definitely take 10 minutes a day to clear my head. I think that no one is immune from anxiety/depression and it’s so important to open up about it when you start feeling it creep up on you. Best wishes to you!

  • Thank you for sharing that-though I’m sorry the battle has been more difficult lately. I think it’s really important to have that kind of honesty in a world where we are so focused on image-and impressive when people are willing to share it.

    • Thank you so much for commenting and for your kind words, I truly appreciate it. I agree with you, I think it’s great to share beautiful photos but it is also important to be real with your audience. xx
