Happy hump day! I cannot believe it is already Wednesday. I mean, where does the week go? I feel like I wake up dreading Monday, then all of a sudden it is Friday. I guess I shouldn't be complaining right?!? Right. Anyways...I want to take a second to talk about patience. I will be the first to admit, mine is lacking. BUT I will say, I am working on it. I think I have always had an issue with my patience level (my parents can attest), but over the last few years it has become extremely evident to me that the issue is real. For one, marriage will make you aware. In good ways and in bad, there are times when JL and I both see our patience tested. We have different personalities, we handle situations differently...so we have to be patient with one another as we continue to figure it out. Two, being on your own financially will wake you up. This alone made me realize I have no patience because I simply couldn't afford to do everything right now. Whether I am re-decorating, working on a project, or shopping, when I get an idea in my head, I want it done. Yeah well, if your bank account won't allow it then PATIENCE is key. Yep dad, I am learning. Anyways with all of this being said, this week my patience level has been brought to my attention. I have tried to do a lot, be a lot, spend a lot...and then I got sick. My body gave in. It is tired of holding me up by a thread. And honestly I don't blame it. It has actually been nice to slow down. To stop and have my quiet time in the morning. To come home and sit on the couch. Isn't it crazy that it took an illness to make me stop? The Lord said, "if you won't listen and slow down then I am going to make sure you do." Heard you loud and clear. But truthfully, maybe the patience thing isn't so bad? Maybe I don't have to do it all right this second. There is time, so things don't need to be rushed. I just need to sit back, relax, and enjoy.
Can I take a second to talk about the Forever 21 faux fur jacket? It is such a fun coat and I love the color block print! It has been the perfect addition to my wardrobe this winter for sure. Up until this year, I was never really one for faux fur as I felt like I could not pull it off, but I actually have enjoyed it this season! It is fun to change things up and wear something I normally would not! Just one of the many things I love about fashion!
