Stress and Being In A Funk

Happy hump day my lovelies. Today’s post is definitely going to be on the more personal side. I have re-written it so many times not quite sure what I want to say. I know we all deal with stress. Some are better at handling it than others. It’s inevitable. I even made a post on how to relax and de-stress.

Stress can also creep up on us as well. There are times I will feel anxious and I’m not sure why.
I’ve been in a funk and stressed pretty much all week. On Monday when I woke up, I was so anxious. Sunday night I slept horribly because I kept worrying about things that shouldn’t be a big deal. I’m trying not to make them a big deal but my body has another idea. I so anxious. All my techniques to help me calm down didn’t even work.

The things I am worrying about are so mundane that I feel like I should not be stressing about them but here I am. I’m worrying about pictures, an event and even money. Now money is something I’m sure everyone one stresses about.
I’m also in this weird funk where I see myself as a failure and haven’t accomplished everything in my life. I don’t think this is helping with the stress. Here I am comparing myself to all these people on Instagram who have amazing pictures and look fabulous. It makes me wonder that if I had a bunch of money, I could afford a professional photographer and new clothes all the time. But really, I just want to make a living off my blog.



I barely get by in life with what I do but I love what I do. There are times I wish I had more photo shoot and commercial gigs. When I have those, I make really good money but the thing is, they don’t happen all the time. And this is why I think I’m a failure. I don’t want to just get by, I’d love my own place and soon. I thought getting accepted to RewardStyle would help me. Granted I’ve made more money in 3 weeks than I did with being on ShopStyle for over a year. Just a few sales made a difference.

I want more out of life. And let me tell you, I’m not going to let a bit of stress and this funk stop me. I love blogging and I am going to keep it up. I’m also going to start contacting more publishing and production companies in my area to let them know I am interested in styling shoots and commercials for them. I am not going to stop until I am where I want to be in life! I am a Girl Boss!

So sorry for this rambling and personal post. I just had to get some stuff off my chest. Unfortunately, I did not get everything off since I did not think it was appropriate to post in on the Internet. Some of my friends read this and I don’t want to start.
Anyways, I saw this quote on Miri’s blog yesterday, “Don’t compare your insides to other people’s outsides.” Isn’t that quote amazing? I am going to make that my new mantra!

  • I have those same anxieties and I worry about the future a lot…if only I had a road map or an Apple App to guide me! lol. Nonetheless, I try to focus on my lane, pray and remember that I am a Girl Boss too! Pow!

    Thanks for sharing your deep thoughts with us…I think we all get stressed from time to time which is why it’s important to take a break and just relax. Ease your mind. On a different note, love your dress! Very chic!

    Happy Wednesday, babe!

    I totally do the same comparison game thing girl. And it totally does get to me too, and you gotta wonder, what are these people doing to make all this money? It’s just insane. But try to focus on yourself, and try to de stress with something you enjoy doing. Because being stressful is never fun.

    • One blogger I know is soooo rich. She just started blogging in July and already has 12k followers on Instagram. She got all of those from being in Loop giveaways. I can barely afford to do one giveaway a month.

    You don’t have to be sorry for sharing something personal, it’s always great to tell about our fears and I think after you talked about you’re feeling better! Plus, I think many of us can relate to this post, me included! Thank you for sharing!

    • Thanks so much for your sweet comment Violette! When I read it this morning when I first woke up, it put a smile to my face.

  • Ellese Launer

    I read every single word of this post and related to every single word of this post. Thank you so much for opening up and sharing. We all go through this. I am constantly in this place of worried about what is going to happen next. It is part of being an entrepreneur, you are definitely in good company! I am proud of you for not giving up! You have so much talent and it shows. XO, Ellese


    • Thank you so much Ellese. This comment made my day. I really appreciate everything you said.

  • Thanks Khloe!

  • It’s quite hard to share something so personal and I think you’re really brave to do so. I think we can all relate to the comparison game although I never compare Instagram feeds, I’m too old for that. That blue dress looks gorgeous on you. Love the Pink lippie too! xx
