I went thrifting today... Not my first time but today was exciting for me. I've fallen in love with fashion so lately I haven't been into buying things just because they're pretty to me. I've been on the search for certain pieces.... like blazers. Lort, I've been searching for the perfect blazers for about a year or two now. Today I went to the Salvation Army and Palmer's Home thrift stores. I bought 2 blazers at both stores, yellow & a blue printed one at SA and a pink and blue one from PH. I also bought 2 dresses from the SA and my total was less than $20.. The two blazers from Palmer's Home were both $2... I was amazed considering the blazers I've seen/wanted online have all been over $50, some even $200+. I also bought a new Maxi dress today from Treasure Mart and it was only $7... Yes, I am excited!
I was doing good up until I went to Old Navy... Didn't buy any clothes but I bought 2 necklaces and a bracelet... all 3 cost more than my thrift finds. blah.
Anyway, my outlook on shopping has completely changed... I will be thrifting a lot!
Change is inevitable, nothing is guaranteed to BE, no matter how much effort you put into making it work. If I have learned nothing else in my 22 years of living, I have learned and accepted that. Though I've come to grips with that fact, I'm still amazed at how quickly things can change. One minute, you'll be thinking about how wonderful life is and how "it just can't get any better" and literally, in the next minute, everything that can go wrong will do just that.
In the past week, I've done some fasting and a whole lot of praying. It's definitely proven to be a plus because I've noticed changes. I'm learning to let God do what he says he will do. Sometimes it's hard to completely give your problems to Him without worrying about them. Especially with me. I'm the type of person who worries about everything, even when I know there is nothing I can do to fix a situation. I'm trying though.
Right now, I'm having to try and not worry about a situation that is draining me. It's hard losing a significant other who has become your best friend as well. I'm trying hard not to handle this situation as I have done with others in the past. Like I said, I'm doing my best to let God handle this and have me to react as he would want me to. That's the effort I have to put forth if I want to see a different outcome. I know that.
I should be sleep... I should also blog more. That will happen once I get my laptop fixed.
