I've learned that you have to take the time to care for yourself. Exams, relationships, paying bills - It's so easy to get burnt out from all the busyness that life creates. Do the things that make you happy. TAKE A BREAK! It's the little things throughout my day that keep me going. Here are a few things I do that make me happy:
I truly appreciate and see the beauty in all things, so I love to just walk around new places and experience new things. I find it exciting and I also love photography, so my camera is always by my side to capture the things I see.
2. taking photos
I have a passion for photography and art. I love to create. It is my absolute favorite thing in this world. I spend a lot of my day editing and doing research about photography. I just recently bought a film camera and a few different film stocks. Film is my latest obsession. You can check out my work here!
3. girls night
I'm very lucky to be surrounded by many kind hearted and talented women. My friends are always silly, and always fun. My best friend lives pretty far away from me, but we talk every day and when she's in town we have a sleep over or a girls day/night - and it always involves delicious food. YUM! It's important to have a support system of people who continually lift you up and encourage you to be the best version of yourself.
4. treat yo self
So, this one is pretty self explanatory! Buy yourself flowers, get that pair of heels you've been eyeing, or do something as small as treating yourself to your favorite snack/guilty pleasure (mines froyo!)
5. play with my pups
My pups Heidi and Mili are my pride and joy. Dogs are truly a man's best friend, and lucky me. I have TWO perfect pups who make my life so much better. After a long and stressful day at clinicals, I come home to wagging tails, lots of puppy kisses, and cuddles. They are the best part of my day and I'm so glad I adopted them. If you're thinking of adding a furry friend to your family, PLEASE consider adopting from your local shelter. There are so many perfect dogs in need of a good and loving home.
