reality is..

hand me down jacket, h&m scarf, f21 skirt, aa thigh high socks, target tights, boots, white cami

free people sweater, tjmaxx skirt, marshall's belt, thrifted flats, black tights, white cami

besides being over come by stress, I am staying intact.  enjoyably intact, even.
just because I don't have the best, highest GPA, doesn't mean I'm a failure.
just because I don't get an A+ on everything, doesn't mean I have to be down on myself.
just because it's junior year, doesn't mean I have to sacrifice my life.

because, honestly, reality is:
  • I am probably not going to be a US historian
  • I'd rather put forth a great amount of effort into things I enjoy, specifically art and fashion
  • Life is too short not to enjoy my high school experience
  • and last, but definitely not least, I am a human being like the rest of the world, I make mistakes and I am NOT perfect

Do you remind yourself of your reality often?  In what cases do you do this?  Does it help?

I have to also thank you all for your wonderful comments on last post!  I think I got a little too snap happy and took way too many pictures.

happy saturday
