Coffee Date no.5; Spring Weather & Soul Searching

Happy Friday everyone!!  I hope you had the most beautiful week, and have been enjoying the lovely spring weather!  I’ve been outside as much as possible, and hearing the birds chirping, smelling the fresh air, and feeling the warm sun is truly perfection!!

This week was a crazy one, and I have never been more excited to say that today is Friday!  This week was filled with midterms, a 12 page research paper, multiple assignments, campaign planning, and seemingly endless hours of reading and studying.  While it definitely took a toll on my mental health, it also left my soul feeling refreshed and re-inspired!  The beautiful weather, and the fact that Doug and I’s cruise is in ten days, definitely helped motivate and inspire me as well!

This week I stopped by a lovely coffeehouse right by my campus (details coming next Friday!), and I switched it up and went for an iced coffee rather than my usual hot cup!  The switch to iced coffee officially symbolizes spring to me, so I grabbed my Ray-Bans and my Tory Burch sandals and decided to explore downtown!  It was wonderful seeing so many people outside enjoying the warmth and sunshine, and it truly made my heart so happy seeing everyone’s smiling faces!

I stopped for a while on the famous Blue Bridge, and let my mind wander while listening to the rushing river below me.  Feeling the fresh breeze while watching the sunset left me feeling refreshed and zen, and I could instantly tell that my mind, body and spirit were back in alignment!  I had also been lacking positive energy throughout the week, so being able to absorb the good vibes back into my body felt incredible!  A crazy midterm week ended with the most beautiful rediscovery!

We all have tough moments, and instead of letting it affect your entire mindset try doing something that will reinvigorate your soul!  Also, make sure you check out my 9 Ways to Beat The Winter Blues {& Get Out of a Rut} and my 20 Ways to be Genuinely & Authentically Happy posts for a little extra inspiration!!

    Hey Tessa, I am glad you took a walk to clear your head. I remember doing the same thing when I was in college. There is nothing more therapeutic than taking a walk in the nature. I wish you luck on your exams. Stay positive!!! xo, Emily (SCsister)
