Stop & Admire the Beauty Around You!

When I'm stressed out or avoiding all my problems, God sometimes does this cool thing where either He opens my eyes to the beauty that surrounds me or decides to make everything pretty. or both, lol. My walk from class was extra boooootiful and calming today, so I took some pictures! (shoes from Charlotte Russe) So gorgeous, am I right?? If you're in stress mode like me, go outside, take a walk, and just take in all the prettiness! Now is a great time because the temperature is perfect (at least in the southern United States, lol) . It is very calming and relaxing! Now I'm gonna get back to studying. Or at least try. Ha. Only a few short weeks of classes left!! xoxo, sarah SITES TO FOLLOW: Twitter: @sarahtabraham   VSCO: sarthellabra Youtube: glambitiousarah

I don't believe in sending "positive vibes" "thoughts" and "love"

I don't think I've ever ranted on my blog before, which is kind of shocking because if you know me personally, I tend to rant. a lot. and now I'm gonna rant about something that could be controversial, but it has been bothering me for years and I have to get it off my chest. You know when someone is going through a tough time? and usually people respond with either: a. I'll pray for you b. I'll keep you in my thoughts c. I'm sending positive vibes your way d. I'll be sending love to you I do not understand b, c, and d. okay, I understand it, but it ABSOLUTELY FRUSTRATES ME. people are going to say I'm overthinking this and I know these people have good intentions, but what are thoughts, positive vibes, and love going to do for someone? it's not gonna help the situation get better. for example, someone is dying of cancer (really sad example because this happens all the time but it's to help clarify my point) . no offense to the people w


pain and sadness is something I've been struggling with the past couple of years. not physical pain (I mean it's sometimes there but that's not my point and totally irrelevant haha) , but the mental, emotional kind of pain. it's something people don't like talking about (especially me) and something we often look at as a bad thing. I always ask God, "why me? why do all the bad things happen to me? what did I do to deserve this? am I cursed?" people often look at pain and sadness as something to be ashamed of because we think people will treat us differently and because it feels like we're the only ones going through it. but we're not. and it's not a bad thing. everyone has something going on that is hurting them at some point; young or old, rich or poor. no one's life is perfect! what is mind boggling to me is how pain has such a negative connotation to it. yes, it feels bad at that moment, but there is a reason for that pain.
