Why I’m Trying to Enjoy the Phase of Life I’m In

Hey everyone! Long time, no chat! I’ve been extremely busy as always and haven’t had much time to write, which is my favorite thing to do. My job is still keeping me incredibly busy and believe it or not, watching what I eat and working out adds to my business. You wouldn’t think that something that should come naturally would be difficult but I spend a lot of time planning out my meals throughout the day and my workouts. I’ll be the first to admit that sometimes its incredibly boring but it’s working! I’ve lost about 3lbs so far. If I didn’t cheat on my calorie count every once in awhile, I’m confident it would be more!

Taking Life One Day at a Time

So today I really wanted to share something that’s been on my mind lately and that’s taking life one day at a time. I’ve always been the full speed ahead, type A person that can’t rest for any reason. However, that passion for the next big thing has trickled into every other aspect of my life- including my relationship with David. That guy has had to put up with my “when are we going to get married” rants for the last year and a half at least. Probably longer if I were being honest.

It’s been driving me crazy- every time I browse my Facebook feed someone else is engaged or getting married and I’m thinking to myself “I’m so far behind all of my friends!” But that’s such a bad way to think of my own life’s journey and I can’t keep thinking like that. I’ve been working on telling myself to enjoy the phase of life I’m in right now. I think anyone can admit however, that it’s hard to appreciate what you have at the moment when there’s something else you want even more. For me, that tends to be an engagement to my love, David, but also sometimes its a better job and nicer car or home. Dreaming about the days and years to come is one thing, but obsessing over them is quite another.

So as difficult for me as it may be (and trust me it’s difficult), I’m trying to learn to enjoy this phase of my life and embrace it. I keep telling myself that someday I’ll look back on this time and wonder why I rushed through it.

What I’m Wearing

I wanted to share this adorable Spartina 449 bag with you guys! It’s their map collection and it has a map on the front and back of the Chesapeake Bay Area which is where I grew up! I absolutely love this bag and they have so many map prints including Texas! I get so many compliments on it and whenever anyway asks where I’m from, I literally can point to my bag and show them. So fun! That little crab on the front of the bag is actually really close to my hometown! “Crab cakes and football- that’s what Maryland does!” Wedding Crashers joke anyone?

  1. I love this! Thank you for sharing. It’s so easy to forget to enjoy the phase that you are in and just continue to rush to the next “better” phase of your life.

  3. I love your outfit! That purse is so cool too!

  4. Loved this so much! Oh my god, girl, my bf and I have been together 8 years and we are not engaged yet and you know why? Because marriage is something I used to not want at all, and still might not. So he was basically waiting for me to give the OK, when really-I did not (and still dont, to be honest) see the point in marriage aside from the legal aspect….I feel like if you want to be with someone forever, you can do that, wtihout that piece of paper, and many people just get married so that it makes it harder to leave. (which makes sense i guess for kids and such, but really- you didnt need to be marriage to procreate lol) so thats just my opinion but basically the long winded purpose of this comment is to tell you to just beat to your own drum and not care what anyone thinks…and thank you because I think you also just inspired another blog post for me πŸ™‚
