I feel like I’ve spent most of my life trying to catch up to one thing or another. In our time and society, everyone and everything goes too fast. It’s the endless “Rat Race,” I suppose.
Since having Landon and officially becoming an “adult” — if I can ever ACTUALLY call myself that — I’ve been struggling to keep up with just about everything it seems. My peers. A career. Money. Bills. Student loans. The list could go on.
While I am STILL in the never-ending trying-to-catch-up cycle, I’ve also found that I am finally the happiest I have ever been. I still live paycheck-to-paycheck, but I am also living in the closest thing to my dream house that is attainable for me. And it’s mine (even if I rent, it still has all of my stuff in it and I take care of it). Landon is in the perfect school for him and he absolutely loves it. And so do I. We don’t have a lot, but we have what we need and we are able to do lots of fun stuff around my favorite city, Louisville.
Life is full of it’s ups and downs. I’ve been thrown plenty of curveballs. I will most likely ALWAYS be catching up. My life isn’t perfect and society would probably say I’m off my rockers. But I’m happy. And my son is happy. And that’s all that really matters right?
This is completely off-topic, but something I’m going to start posting more about are subscription boxes, my new obsession. I know everyone else has been obsessed with them for awhile now, but as I said before, I’m always catching up!
Anyway, I just found a new subscription box! It’s called Soltheory and they are all about SUNGLASSES! With the change of seasons, I’m in desperate need for some new shades so I’m really excited to try them out. Starting at $12.99 per month, you get a new pair of sunglasses sent right to your doorstep (my favorite part of subscriptions is that I don’t have to get out of my pj’s). They have different boxes with options for 1 or 2 pairs of sunglasses per month, jewlery and beauty products as well.
“Members can expect to receive in trend fashion eyewear, keeping them fashion-forward without the designer price tag.”
Best of all, my followers get 20% off their first box! Use code MORNINGBELL to get your discount and try out some new, trendy sunglasses! 🙂
