✨Living in gratitude is the key to living in peace and happiness.✨ • • •
Everyday I try my best to immediately say three things I’m thankful for before even getting out of bed. I’ve noticed that type of mental practice sets me up for a calm like state of mind. Living in NYC isn’t easy ! All the people rushing to get somewhere, busy trains and buses, loud ass sirens and construction, it can get overwhelming! But I choose to practice gratitude especially in the midst of chaos because even with alllll of that my introvert self still manages to enjoy this beautiful annoying city!☺️

The key to happiness? After reading an article about happiness from a happiness class at Yale University, I know a thing or two on how to be happy. More about that right now on my blog —> Link in bio ❤️
📸 @a.j.fergus • one thing I want to speak upon is people assuming followers = money. I was naive at one point and assumed anyone with over 100k followers were making big bucks! This is far from true. Don’t get me wrong there are probably people who are but for a lot of us the hustle is real! I don’t live a glamorous lifestyle at all, I work a couple of days a week at a supermarket ( I have even met some of my followers from behind my cash register!)I live with my husband and his grandma in a small apartment and have to budget my money every month. Thats the real raw truth, trying to make something of myself in this city. My main income is still through IG but that was only the case as of this past year. Like everyone says: IG is a highlight reel , I’m not going to post the struggles of my everyday life. I’m proud of my hard work and all my ig babes who are doing the same ❤️
it’s the small things. the way my blinds are set to let the perfect amount of morning light in. my small, but powerful @keurig coffee maker that makes a banging cup of iced coffee. Making it home right before the summer storm starts. Catching a friend you haven’t seen awhile randomly on the subway. it’s all the small things that make life feel just right. ✨ a new work week in my life vlog is up on my YouTube channel; it’s v. normal and v. comical. link in bio.
