when you're in the depths of despair

Sometimes I think I'm over dramatic like Anne.  After all, my middle name is Anne -yes with an "e" my mother is a sophisticated woman no doubt. But sometimes I feel like I'm in the depths of despair, mine is a little different because I'm not an orphan, that poor Anne girl.  When I'm in the depths of despair I tend to find a way to make it worse.  Say for instance I'm upset about the way I look because I'm not taller or because I have over-sized hips. -See, here goes my middle name again.  So I go looking at pictures of bloggers that I obsess over because I love the way the wear their clothes or because I love the life they have.  Can I be any more materialistic?!  It's like a vicious cycle and I just dig myself deeper and deeper into despair. 

What's up with that??

Anyways, it seems when I have these kinds of moments it helps me to remember who I really am and all the good things that I have and have become. Because if there is one thing I've learned through my 24 years of life it's that comparing your self to others gets you no where, you've just gotta be yourself.  

So, I'm being my self today. 

Another way to get out of the depths of despair is to watch a funny show, for me its the office.  I wonder what Anne would think about the office? 

Happy Wednesday Eve!

  1. I love this! It's so easy when I'm despairing to just make things worse with my thoughts and actions, you are SO right here.

  2. it's definitely easy to get swept away with how blah your life is when you have so many beautiful images to look at on blogs and pinterest! but it's good that you know how to check yourself and appreciate what you have :) also, your outfit is SO cute, i love the lace leg warmers poking out of your boots.

    Ps- I found you through the Styling in St. Louis linkup :)
