A Bit of Perspective

In all honesty, this wasn't the post I originally had scheduled today. As I mentioned in this Instagram post, I planned on sharing with y'all an outfit that I wore last week to a grad party but, of course, I had some computer issues and the pictures are gone.

I'm not going to dwell too much on what happened (I had to turn in my laptop as it was a school computer, logged out of my Apple account on it but deleted the pictures off the memory card, the pictures didn't go to the iCloud, and now they're gone haha) but rather how I dealt with it.

I was annoyed as I was so excited to share those pictures with y'all since they turned out well and I love the outfit. But they're just pictures and at the end of the day, it really doesn't matter. No one got hurt, it didn't cost me any money, and it's not a big deal. Would I love to share those pictures with y'all? Of course! But is it the end of the world? Definitely not.

Even though my example of some pictures that managed to disappear seems pretty silly or trivial (#FirstWorldProblems), this perspective still applies to other aspects of life. In our day-to-day lives, we stress and we stress about the little things because they seem so important at the time yet loose track of what ought to matter in our lives and what we truly care about.

I'm not saying it's easy to do this (obviously because I was the one freaking out about some pictures the other day) but re-focusing on what matters most is so important. I love blogging and I love it the same with or without those photos. I know that not everybody has a blog but prioritizing what truly matters is important. Let's stop being overly "busy" (you know running yourself thin with way to many to-dos) and spend more time with family and friends or doing what makes you happy!

Now, I'm getting off my soap box and sharing the picture I do have from those photos because I still really love the outfit!
