stop say sorry 2019.jpg

 

Yes, that’s me when I was 5. The point is, as females, we are raised from a young age, by society,  in a world where we automatically feel guilty for everything. As women, we are more inclined to say sorry for things that we aren’t even at fault for. That all the bad things can somehow to be tied back to our actions. When we say sorry, we give up our power. We relinquish it to the person at fault, who will now feel entitled to do as they want. In this post, I’m going to explore why females say sorry and how you should own yourself. I’ve read so many articles an essays about this topic, which is what initially got me interested. At the bottom of the post, there are links to websites and articles I enjoyed and recommend!

RO_-7

 

What else is there to do on a summer morning except to make a vision board. I like having order in my life, having a plan, a schedule. I obviously had to be even more planned and organized out, which led me to make a vision board. My sister and I cut things out of fashion magazines that “spoke to us”. What spoke to me were headlines about the women joining Congress. What spoke to my sister were ads for chocolate bars. That doesn’t matter, but we had fun collaging and were able to get through half a season of friends.

may bullet journal.jpg

 

Hello Everyone! I’m so excited for this spread because it was by far my favorite bullet journal spread I’ve ever done. I used Pinterest to find inspiration for these pages after developing a color scheme. The core colors are a few shades of blue, a bright red, a light pink, and grey. I definitely did not keep it minimalistic. After determining that I wanted to make this month extra special, I decided to start early. This took a lot more time than my usual spreads, although if you do want to see those posts, keep reading to the end for all of those links. Enjoy!
