Stop Apologizing: Love Yourself

“Oh, I’m sorry.” 

Wait……. Why am I sorry? That person bumped into me. 

“I’m sorry.” 

Why did I just apologize for laughing? That person is laughing too. 

 

I do this all of the time and if you don’t know what I am talking about, I am talking about the fact that I apologize for being me. I can’t help myself and it’s a very bad habit. I can’t be the only person that does this. I recently made a promise to myself that I am no longer going to apologize for being me. I’m going to start living my best life and stop second guessing myself. I’m going to laugh however I want, I’m going to walk freely, I’m going to smile if I want to. I have a right to be on this earth, just as much as anyone else. Apologizing for everything that I do is something that I do as an insecurity. If I apologize, that means that I am lesser than the person that I am apologizing to. I know that I am not any less than that person. I am a human being that has emotions, I am a human being that walks down a street, and I am a human being that compliments something that I like. If you are like me and apologize for something that you didn’t need to apologize for, I want you to stand with me and stop apologizing. Tell yourself that you’re allowed to laugh, you’re allowed to breathe, and you’re allowed to be yourself. Promise yourself that you are going to stop saying sorry for no reason.

 

I would like a friend of mine for inspiring this blog post (you know who you are).

Summer Fashion

I know that it’s not technically summer yet, but here in Bakersfield, it has already been over 100 degrees! Just because it’s gross outside does not mean that I need to look gross.

I am in need for some cute summer clothes, but something affordable. Where do I go? If you said Forever 21, you are absolutely right. How cute is this off the shoulder top that I picked up from there? Guess how much it was? Never mind I will just tell you… $12.90. Yes, the mind was blown, you’re welcome! I love Forever 21, not only are they affordable, but they have a large variety of plus size clothes. I know that every time I walk in there, I am going to find something cute. That tends to be good and bad. This palm tree print on my shirt has been everywhere lately. Everything about this top is just so adorable and appropriate for summer time! This top is off the shoulder and very light weight, it also cinches in at the waist to give a flattering look to the body. I absolutely love it!

What would summer be without sunglasses? I picked these cute ones up from Charlotte Russe for $5.

You can find similar ones here.
