Some days, it's just going to rain

If you could kinda sorta tell, I have been pretty pensive lately. I'm actually quite prone to that...periods of time where I am feeling really introspective. Or times when things seem to feel overwhelming or difficult and I am just trying to make some sense of it all. The fact of the matter is, not all days can be sunny ones. I have always been of the mindset (and sometimes I need to be better at reminding myself) that all the bad situations and tough things you have to go through, well they just make you better prepared to truly appreciate and savor the good things that may come your way. That is honestly why I blogged about my internship. It wasn't to brag or boast (and I feel badly that that is what some people thought of my post.) It really was just my way of celebrating -- good things deserve to be celebrated. Especially if you are like me and good things are truly EARNED.

Some days, it's just going to rain. Hell there may be rainy seasons in some of our lives. I guess they can be easier to get through by holding on to the hope that sunny days will be right around the corner.

But in the meantime, I'll be sure to wear some cute rain shoes :)


  1. Wow, people thought you were bragging about your internship? Frankly, I'd rather read about what's really going on in people's lives than see a gazillion photos of what they wore during the week. But hey, that's just me! Hang in there.

  2. How did I miss this announcement? CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Screw the people who aren't excited for you, and thought you were bragging. Well, not literally, of course. You deserve to be very excited.

    And those rain boots are fabulous, btw.

  3. Yeah, I got some less than nice "feedback" but that's ok. If I put things up for all the world to see and read, I need to be a big girl and take whatever they have to say :)

  4. Rain shoes were an absolute find at Marshall's!

  5. LOVE those shoes! I read somewhere (a phrase which makes this sound like a total urban legend) that bright colors have been shown to lift our moods on rainy days. Hence my yellow rainboots and bright pink raincoat. :) So here's to smiling through the rain and looking for the rainbow!

  6. love your shoes and your perspective!!

    remember, the sun will come out, tomorrow!!!

  7. It is your blog and if you wanted to brag go ahead and brag. Not that you were...

  8. Just read your internship post... first of all CONGRATULATIONS! That is so amazing and as you mentioned, something to be PROUD OF. Don't feel bad about that for a second. Sometimes I feel bad that I post about the happy things that go on in my life and start to feel guilty about it. But that's completely bogus. We all have hard times and good times. Rejoice in what you have and what you have made for yourself. Congratulations and good for you!

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  9. I can't believe people thought you were bragging. I just thought it was really cool and glad you shared something so exciting.
    The rain shoes are to cute
