Today’s post is all about gratitude. As you know if you’ve been reading, I’ve been working on trying to better myself by challenging my style, growing in gratitude, trying new things, and being a healthier version of myself.

I feel like my recent gravitation toward bohemian-esque pieces has stemmed from my new outlook (or attempt at a new outlook). Recently, my family came to visit and it was wonderful experiencing new things and spending time relaxing with those I love. We went to a delicious vegetarian restaurant (I am in no way a vegetarian but the food here is delicious!) that a friend of mine once took me to and had a scrumptious and fulfilling meal. If you are near Orlando, go to it–it’s called Dandelion Communitea Cafe (love the play on words!) and it has a cute little meditation garden and book drop for avid visitors and their goings-on.

Anyways, lately I’ve just wanted to be comfortable, relaxed, and happy so this bohemian style fits my weekend and weeknight ventures to a T. I had the pleasure of going shopping with my mother and aunt this past weekend and found these lovely palazzo pants for a great deal. I’ve been on the prowl for globally-printed wide legged pants like these for a few weeks now. A huge deal with fit for me is making sure that the legs don’t rub together.

Yeah, maybe that’s too much information {sorry} but I’m loving that these pants have built in shorts to make them all the more comfortable. What’s even more perfect, is that they’re called “Boho Goddess Pants”! And, appropriately so, because even when I feel my worst, these babies are flattering and comfortable (plus–bonus!– they are short enough to wear with flats and not drag!).

So, yeah–I’m not only thankful for finding my dream pants but for many other things as well. ┬áLife has been tough lately and I ashamed to say that I haven’t always looked at the silver lining like I should. Every so often, things happen that make you realize that you should be grateful no matter what you’re going through. I know that sounds cliche, but even when you are down it’s important to know that people who care about you love you and most of all–want to see you succeed. What’s depressing is know that you are the only person standing in your way sometimes.

So this is my new quest–to look outside the minute trials and tribulations of everyday life and be grateful for the loving, supportive family and friends that I do have. Negativity no longer will hold residency in my mind or in my outlook on life. There are a few important steps I know I will have to take to ensure that this journey becomes a lasting reality, but I know that I will get there and so will you if you really want to. I’ve recently gotten back into yoga, reading, and meditation and I’m finding that sometimes this is the only clarity that I need in order to get back onto the right path.
