Trust The Process

Waking up this morning was difficult. I'm not one to complain about being tired usually, because oddly enough I'm a morning person. Once I'm up, I'm good to go. But dang, with that hour gone and the sun not rising until I was in the car and arriving at work this morning... it was tough, bro. It was tough. 


This weekend I hung out with the pups, hung out with Helene, went shopping and spent too much money on stuff that I absolutely needed and must have or I would have died. Like the yarn woven elephant I found at Home Goods. Needed that little guy. Pictures to come later (because I didn't take any yet). 

You see, I'm on the mission to make my apartment feel like home, and feel like a place I want to be. I think I am going through a weird phase right now where I'm not sure what my place in this world is. I don't know what I want out of life. There is a lot going on in the world-o-Sarah and oddly enough absolutely nothing going on in the world-o-Sarah at the same time. Wow, that was vague. But I'm just not ready to explain myself just yet. I'm not brave enough just yet. Although, I bet it would help to spill it to you guys, you always know what to say to make me feel better. That you is an all encompassing you for everyone in blog land.

I've got all these grand ideas in my mind to better my apartment. To better my life. To get more motivated. To lose more weight. To put more effort into my life. To not be so lazy. Yada yada yada...

So what did I do to make these goals above happen?  I ordered a stuffed crust pizza yesterday and watched *cough* 11 *cough* reruns of Real Housewives of NYC. #boom #driven. It is the only RH where I genuinely like every character. Does Aviva annoy the crap outta me with all of her phobias, yes she does, but for some reason I still dig the girl. And Heather is now of course my hero since she sent me leggings that are amazing. 

Anyway, everything resets on Monday, right? I get to try my hand again today at being the best I can be!

  2. I feel ya girl. I think I've been going through the same thing in life. There's so many big changes that will be in my near future, I honestly couldn't tell you what my life will be like 3 months from now. All I know is that it will be a complete 180. Whatever you're going through, I hope it all comes together for you soon!

  3. I feel like work should start an hour later to make up for daylight savings. I also feel like work should be shorter during the winter to make up for everyone having the winter blues. I think my common theme is I would rather be shopping or at home :)

  4. Today is totally another chance! I always have to remind myself that!

  5. I totally know that feeling. I'm calling it an end of winter funk. When spring comes it will be filled with margaritas and distractions like flowers and beaches and all that deep thinking will be put aside for next winter. We can make it!

  6. Daylight savings is kicking my butt! I spent my entire Sunday looking dazed and confused..but hopefully warm weather is right around the corner! And I cant wait to hear about all of your ideas, im sure they are great!

  7. Exactly! Resets on Monday.. that's the way I think about it. Have a great week. ;)

  8. Sprucing up your home is incredible motivation - so don't ever feel guilty for buying decor. (Everyone needs a woven elephant, let's be honest.)

  9. We haven't got our Daylight Saving yet in Europe. I hope things will get better for you

  10. last night it felt so early and I thought I had lots of time to finish getting stuff done around the house and it was already 8 pm. totally messed up with this time change. and sometimes we need a day of reality tv/pizza. it's good for the soul.

  11. Needed this, this morning. At the end of the day, we're all the same - simply trying to figure things out. It's good to know that we're not alone in this process!

  12. Sounds like an awesome weekend! I can't wait to see the elephant you bought :) I know it must be fabulous since it came from Homegoods aka the best place on earth.

  13. I feel you on the tiredness. I don't understand how one little hour could throw a person so out of whack, but it just does.

  14. I feel like this a lot, actually. I'm honestly terrified for "real life" after college, if only because it seems so unstructured. What do you work toward? How do you stay motivated? Hope you twist out of your funk :]

  15. I hear ya girl! I am trying to make my condo feel like home too and trying to figure out my life as well. It is hard but I think we both can do it and be happy too!

  16. But stuffed crust pizza is delicious....
    Love that photo of you and Helene, too cute. Also, as far as decorating your home, HomeGoods has a free quick quiz on their website to determine your style. http://www.homegoods.com/stylescope Do and it and tell me what you are! I love seeing people's answers.

  17. You made the right choice with the pizza and the RH. But this is the stuff you snap and share, my dear! :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love the Monday reset. And I don't think anyone here is going to judge the pizza choice.

  19. I have a love/hate relationship with Daylight Saving. I love the extra daylight hours. I hate the transition.

  20. I'm going through the same thing right now! I'm trying to become more motivated but every time I say I'm going to do something to better my life, I end up just taking a nap. Which, in a way, can better my life because naps are pretty much the best thing ever. But yeah, I'm trying to figure out what I want in life, so I feel you!

  21. You can't tell me you love Ramona. She's crazy. Like, she has crazy in her eyes!!! ...girlfriend I feel you on this!! I'm starting a new job next week so I have all of this week to myself and I was hoping to use it to get organized, clean my house, read a couple books, and just overall hit the "reset" button in anticipation of a "new beginning" of sorts next Monday. ...so far it's 11am, I'm still in my jams, and all I've done is watch re-runs of Bravo shows I don't even really care about. But your post here motivates me because the good news is, not only is it Monday, but it's only 11am, so we can reset now!! Let's do it! =)

  22. I get like that with life sometimes. Not sure what you want to do and just going through the motions day to day. Can't wait to hear about the changes! Teasers are no fun, so I hope you reveal soon! And this weight loss thing…funks come and go. My latest burst of motivation is this monthly instagram challenge. I know you’re against flooding the feed, but it’s working for me and gets me to the gym. You should consider giving it a shot!

  23. I feel you! I'm about to graduate college and I have NO clue what I want to do and it can be stressful and scary..but exciting!

  24. You are my spirit animal. Luckily I have never had a job that caused me to see the morning (AKA icky) part of Daylight Savings time, just the glorious extra hour at the end of the day part. All of that changed this morning - alarm went off at 5:30 and I seriously ran around the house double checking every clock, because there was no way that it was still dark & I had to get up… RIGHT?! Wrong. Extra coffee and the dream of ordering pizza tonight are getting me through this day.

    Even though I am 26 (and a half) with a Masters degree, fiancĂ© and two fur babies that call me Mom (they totally do, I can understand pug), I still live like a college student, and sometimes it gives me this anxious "I'm never going to grow" feeling… so, just know that you aren't alone!

  25. Spring will be here soon and that always helps with motivation. And at least you will probably see it much sooner than I will in Ohio. I just heard we are expected to get more snow :(

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've been going through the exact same thing lately and did basically the same thing as you, just substitute pizza with chinese delivery and RH with watching YouTube vlogs. ;)

  27. DLST is a total beeotch BUT on the bright side there wasn't this huge ball of blinding light screaming into my eyeballs as I drove to work today. So I suppose it's not thaaat bad.

    P.S. - you will figure out your life. I think part of the fun in life is not knowing what the heck is going on but just to enjoy the journey. You've got this girl!

  28. I'm going through it as well. Ugh why cant I just be told what I'm supposed to do and how to do it?!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am slowly trying to make my apartment feel like a home as well. I feel like my mom put no effort in and our house was always so cozy, I need to recruit her over here to decorate for me.

  30. It was soooo hard getting up this morning. I ended up sleeping an extra twenty minutes, just to make myself feel better.

    You should spill the beans.. I bet a lot of people would know just what to say, to make you feel better. I'm all ears and love to help where ever I can. :)

  31. I love this. Too true about wanting so many things at once! I feel like the new year and spring coming always does that for me. I wanted to start eating better and had been most of the week- until I went on a brewery tour and ate cupcakes on saturday. OOOPS...whatever, it was worth it. ;)

  32. I also had a hard time rising this morning and I hear you on the apartment front. It's going to take me a year to get this place where I want it to be; I am only hoping i don't decide i want to move!

  33. that pic of us is a framer. man today has been so long and i was so excited for a fresh start but it feels just the opposite. i need to remember to breather.

  34. Daylight savings still has a few weeks left to run here, I love daylight savings but I am also glad when it is over

    ReplyDelete
  35. I know what you mean! It was so rough for me getting up this morning even though I took the day off.

    I think you should open up a little more on your blog love. Sometimes we may be our worst critic and can stop ourselves when really, once we open up people can really relate to you and you'll be amazed at the feedback. It's all in your own timing though and what you know you can be brave enough to do, but that's just my take on that.

    Cute pic of y'all!! xoxo

  36. Daylight savings is killer! Monday is when everything resets! Let loose on the weekend and make up for it on Mondays!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Your life status was totally vague but I can completely relate! I have a lot going on, but nothing at all. Ugh! I am hoping things get straightened out soon....for both of us! And sometimes, you just need a pizza and reruns.
