Blessings not Burdens.

Social media is such a strange place – we watch the limited content bloggers post and loathe our own lives because we’re not eating instagramable meals or sitting at the edge of an infinity pool overlooking the skylines of Greece. But what would your reaction be if they started posting everything – all their problems included? Would you still follow them? We all just want to be surrounded by positive things that inspire us #goals but in order to have that you must chose to be happy! Chose to talk about your blessings and complain less about your burdens, being a grateful person makes you a happy person because you start to appreciate the little things in life as opposed to all the little problems you may have.

Be thankful for your eyes that see, your ears that hear, your mouth that tastes, your nose that smells, your skin that lets you feel, the legs you walk on, and the voice you use to express your feelings.  Be thankful for your home, your family, your friends, your work, and your pets.  Be thankful for the sunny days, but just as thankful for all the water on rainy days.  These are just the basics, there’s so much more life has given you that you must appreciate in order to be happy.

This weekend put life back into perspective once again.  Surround yourself with the people who truly love you.  Life is too short to have a crappy/subpar weekend.  Your life should be full of love, laughter, and joy.  Hug your family and friends, do it twice if that’s what the day calls for! Cherish the good food that you’re lucky to afford.  Dress up, even if your inner self feels like a bum.  Kick up the music a couple extra notches when your favorite song is on.  Dance to your own rhythm – who really cares if someone’s watching?  Laugh till you’re in tears.  This is SO important: Not all love comes from others; it must come from within for others to reciprocate / bounce off your energy.  But the most important part of all – put on your best smile and conquer that happy life.

I spent this past weekend in Atlantic City.  I cannot remember a moment from the weekend that my cheeks didn’t hurt from laughing! Shout out to the people who feed your soul ❤

New Beginnings

When Chronicles of a New Mrs first struck my mind, I was in the midst of getting married and then being a new wife.  It became impossible for me to keep a good balance between working and maintaining my new home life but I desired so much to document everything I was doing, and possibly giving others walking down a similar path in life some inspiration.

I started my first blog with minimal web design skills and almost no consistent schedule on my blog posts making it easier to just skip out…  For the last couple days, I’ve been feeling re-inspired and started working on a fresh new page and improving content.

The inspiration came from my last read… How to be a Bawse.  One of my favorite quotes from the entire book is “Think of your mind, body, and soul as members of a group project. You get the best grade when everyone does an equal amount of work.”

So ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the new and improved Chronicles of A New Mrs.  I will find any excuse to shop or get dressed up … but I strongly believe the way you dress and the way you carry yourself shouldn’t be for anyone else but yourself because if you feel amazing you project nothing but amazing.
