Current Gratitude | 11.3.14

It. Is. November... 2014 ill be over in less than two months... Just let that sink in y'all.

I've always loved this time of the year, but to be honest I'm a little confused about how to go about the holidays in a world where I'm not a student with a designated three week break in which to enjoy it. I'm so new to this concept of being an "adult" in the "real world" that I found myself weirdly bummed and stressed rather than excited when I thought about the upcoming holiday season (which is really unlike me #christmasobsessed).

Personally, I've found that it's totally overwhelming to think about change in a large-scale way. When I let myself look at the big picture I usually fall into some major anxiety and general stress about life. I've found that if I ease into things and accept the small changes as they come it's easier for my structure/routine/tradition loving self to process.

I know I'm not alone when I say that each day of this post-grad life brings something hard different to deal with, and if you have any tips on how you cope/have coped with all this change I'd love to hear them! Okay, rant over. Back to the matter at hand- gratitude.

What I'm grateful for this week:
the autumn jazz station on pandora 
snuggling in front of the fire on a quick visit home
getting to hang out and catch up with my little brother 
being able to watch old movies whenever I wish #thanksnetflix 
parents who support me, encourage me, inspire me, and never let me settle
finally getting to wear my Barbour and riding boots #typicalwhitegirl

What are you grateful for this week? How do you deal when faced with lots of change at once? xx

  1. Love this post! I'm beyond thankful for (like you said) a warm fireplace, flannel button downs, fuzzy socks, and changing leaves!


I love hearing from my readers!
