HOW TO STYLE A BAND TEE (+ A LESSON LEARNED)





Guns and Roses Tank (I got mine from a warehouse sale) Black Shorts (mine are from last summer)

Happy Wednesday! Originally I was just going to talk about this outfit and how fun (and different for me) this tank was. Last night, though, I felt the need to share something I've had to deal with/learn a lesson on which is disappointment. I know total bummer right!? But maybe some of you are struggling with this too and could use a person to relate to? I hope maybe this helps someone in some way or at least is just therapeutic for me. 

Anyways, recently a situation occurred where I felt so let down and disappointed by someone I look up to. Oh btw this is not a pity party or to put someone else down whatsoever just wanted to share something I'm learning! I was so excited for something to happen that I had adjusted my "after college plan" but when I found out this something wasn't happening I was devastated. To be honest, it kind of put me in a crap position. For the past week all I've been focusing on is how angry I am and how disappointed I feel. If I'm being really honest I felt so hurt I wanted to really let this person know how they've made me feel because I felt it was so unfair. 

Have any of you felt this way? 

With all those feelings jumbled up inside of me I realized I needed to respond to this person's email and like I said I first wanted to spill out all of my disappointed feelings. I then realized I am being taught a lesson. I can either let my disappointment get the best of me or I can shake it off and keep moving. Yes being let down stung and threw me off guard but this is not going to be the only time this happens. This situation is prepping me for similar things down the road so I can be even more resilient. People will disappoint me again and I will disappoint people; not only am I learning to keep my head up and bounce back but also I'm learning I want to try my best to make other's not feel like how I do. 

Things won't always go my way (DUH), there's a reason for everything though. Apparently I wasn't meant to pursue this opportunity. I know there is something better waiting, something that is the right fit for me. If you've been struggling with something similar I hope you remember that there is something better coming your way! Chin up buttercup! 

XOXO, Maddy
