Sleeveless Trench, Grey Turtleneck & the Art of NOT Managing it All

It’s been weeks since I’ve been here on the blog. I apologize, but I’ve been very busy lately, and I’ve been having trouble managing it all. In January, I shared with you guys that I was “doing the most.”  If you recall, (if not, you can always check out the post here) I was super excited to do all that I had planned this year, and I just knew that I was going to completely SLAY everything!

Well, it’s only the second month of the year and I was Completely. Totally. And utterly. Wrong! Work is kicking my butt, school is kicking my butt, life is kicking my butt and I feel like I’m failing in everything. I feel like I’m up to my neck in water. And, for those who don’t know me personally, I can’t swim.

These days I spend my time locked in my room trying to make 48 hours out of 24. But this day I managed to creep out of my work hole and just enjoy a day of smiles and rest. I threw on a simple minimalist outfit with my favorite fur clutch for a pop of personality.

These past few weeks (more like 8), it seems like I’m managing my life instead of living it. And I hate feeling this way! In an age where the average person is a doctor/lawyer/teacher/blogger/weave seller/ Instagram boutique owner (zero shade here) and sharing everything on social media, it appears so easy to juggle a million things at once. Well, I’m here to tell you: don’t drink the kool-aid. It is everything but easy to juggle life. And if you don’t manage your time correctly, there are sleepless nights, unhealthy meals, stress and virtually no time for family and friends.

I don’t want that life so I decided that something has got to give. I’ve got to find a way to get a handle on my life or else I’m going to go insane. Ya’ll pray for me.


Have any tips of how I can get my life? Share them in the comments!

    God has not given you a sprit of fear. Ask him he will show you what to do. He will not give you beyond what you are able.
    Be Bless

    I love and praying for you
