Holy shit you guys. There are so many cute sock booties right now. I’m having a moment of I want all of them but can’t afford to buy all haha. Envious over them. Like THESE & THESE I’m MAJOR eyeing right now. These ones I’ve got on have been my favorite pair of boots ever. The reason is because I love the way they fit. Tight against the ankle, so you can wear them underneath jeans without it poking out all funky. And of course with a skirt it looks phenomenal.
So shifting gears here. Last week I was having a moment… as you guys know on my IG stories I kind spewed it all out. I was just feeling so caved in with being so overwhelmed all at once. I think I take on to much when I don’t have a ton of help. BUT with that said, I also think I should slow down and take one thing at a time, and thats what I’ve been doing the past week after that moment. I love what I do, and the connection I’ve made with you guys has been the best part. The community is so incredible and I realized this when I was having that moment. So many of you reached out to me with books to read, giving me motivation, empathizing with me.. etc. You guys made my day and I appreciate you ALL SO MUCH.
I started reading this book recommended by one of you, called “The 5 Second Rule” basically its this exercise you do to make you pull your head of your ass and keep moving. It sounds SO simple and it really is that simple. What you do is count backwards before you talk yourself out of it. Because lets be real, we sometimes don’t want to do what we REALLY need to do, and what will improve our lives. We all know what we need to do to better our lives, so lets DO IT. It’s always the most simple things, like driving to the gym, lifting a weight, making dinner, reading, or starting that book you’ve been wanting to write. You get it.
So I’ve been practicing this rule on myself with literally everything. When I hear my alarm in the morning, I’ll count backwards… 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. The moment I say 1 I MOVE. You have to physically move and get shit done. I do this when I feel super frustrated with Oaks, and about to raise my voice. It keeps me in check and helps me do the things I know I need to do.
I’m only half way through the book, but I’ll update you guys again once I’ve practiced this longer. So far so good.
Have a great day!
