I know I've been slacking on my blog duties this week, but I needed a break from my everyday activities to focus on myself and my relationships. Lately, I have been struggling with insecurities and lacking self confidence in every aspect of my life. Unfortunately, it was beginning to affect my relationships, and I am the type of person that will revert into my little shell and let my brain overthink the simplest things. Our brains can be scary, friends, but we must learn how to control it! Alas, I reached a moment this week where I said "suck it up, Tarah" and I started making progress in my relationships. I have been spending much more time with God, learning how to let go of my anxieties and trusting Him in my life. Plus, I've been reaching out to some long lost friends of mine whom I haven't seen in ages. After my boyfriend returned home from a much needed break with his family, we were able to bring our relationship closer after too much time spent a part. Sometimes, I still catch myself overthinking, but learning how to become more mentally strong and communicating my insecurities have really helped relive the weight.
Yesterday, the company I work for had it's annual Christmas lunch. As a result, I took advantage to snap some pictures of me dressed up. I had so much fun at the party! It helps having the best co-workers that always know how to have a good time. The restaurant served great food that made everyone's bellies content, and the party ended with door prizes that had everyone laughing and clapping with each other. Whassup, 16" cookie cake, I won! Get in my belly.
