Taking Chances.

This week has been a whirlwind of stress and anxiety. Some good, some bad. Yesterday was especially trying. Maybe it's because it's not a fantastic time of the month for me, thus making me extra hormonal, but I was ready to cry over spilled M&M's. No but really, if there was chocolate available and I spilled it on the floor, I think I would've legitimately been upset and described it as the "cherry on top of my awful day." Wah wah wah.

A few things are up in the air right now, in several departments of my life. I don't want to go into too much detail, simply because I don't want to jinx the good stuff! Having said that, by the end of this weekend, I may or may not have a furry counterpart. I'm crossing my fingers for a good connection and good luck, but I'm also trying to stay rational and understanding. If this furry counterpart isn't meant to brighten up my life, maybe it's because he's meant to bring beams of sunshine into someone else's. 

I've found that there isn't much point in stressing out about what you can't control - you can only take a chance, do what you can, and hope for the best! Not only that, but I'm trying to break away from having to ask everyone's opinion about every change I might make in my life. From asking five friends if "this dress is okay," to asking a server at a new restaurant which dish on a menu triumphs the other, to asking my parents what my next step should be. Growing up means taking control of your own life and trusting your decisions, and that's exactly what I intend to start doing.

Happy Friday! XO


  1. You are absolutely right! Less stressing, more confident living. Enjoy a restful weekend, Samantha :)

  2. Hi! I cam across your blog through Coast to Coast. I am also a Florida Blogger, I live in Sarasota. I just turned 23 and I feel like I am constantly asking my parents for advice and what I should be doing next. It's hard and the struggle of growing up is very real!

    Good luck with the furbaby!

    1. How cool! I love's the new mall treating you? I can't wait to go. But yes, I feel like whether I'm 23 or 29, I'll forever be asking my parents advice! Not always a bad thing, I guess?!
