i'm really sick and a little bit stressed.

i haven't been able to breathe for three days, and i wasn't able to dance in a showcase performance at school last night as a result. i was really looking forward to it and had been working really hard for the last month so that i could do it. i almost just did it anyway, but whilst dancing with a fever in modern yesterday, i decided it wasn't the best idea. i probably would have ended up falling over, and that's not really fun in front of an audience.

and then this morning, we discovered that we are very overdrawn in our checking account.

and we found a big, fat parking ticket on our car.

needless to say, i'm not having the best day....


wanna hear something cool?

i'm not devastated. i'm not falling apart. my world is not unraveling.

in the pre-medication, pre-therapy days, these things would have sent me into a tailspin of despair, anxiety, and self-loathing.

but today, i'm kind of seeing things in perspective.

and i'm hopeful.

i know things are just fine and that i have everything i need.


  1. You have a great attitude! I know I would have a hard time holdin' it down if that all happened to me. We all have bad days... things can only go up from here! :D

  2. I hope you feel better soon Jasmine! Allergies and sinuses have been insane lately. And glad you're feeling good emotionally along with all the stress.

  3. so happy you're able to keep perspective. you are a strong woman, taking courageous steps towards the happiness you truly desire. love you for it, jasmine.

  4. hopefullness is good to have when your not feeling so hot :)

  5. good girl!
    keep up the good work Jasmine...you are worth it!!!

  6. i can't tell you how much this echoed my feelings this week. boyfriend dumped me, had like zero money, was sick to my stomach and skipped class - and somehow felt like everything would be completely, and totally, fine.

  7. Jasmine you are so great. Seriously. I love reading your blog -it's so honest. Glad to hear things are looking up. Sorry you had a crappy day though!

  8. Great attitude :) Things will look so much better tomorrow! Money worries in particular are never worth the...well, worry. They'll be gone before you know it x

  9. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You are so cute. Chin up :)

  10. I have to admit, I'm a bit jealous of your ability to remain calm. Finances are the only thing I freak out over. I lose sleep when I am unsure of my budget for the coming months. Just recently I barely slept for 3 days because I was unsure if I'd have enough money to move. So keep just thought I'd mention I know how hard it is, and I'm glad to hear you're doing well.

  11. It's funny, I was having a sub-par week myself. But life is too short to let little things get me down. Glad you're feeling positive!

  12. hey pretty lady. It's so wonderful to hear that you have that inner peace. I know it's a constant battle (the bible says so!) but we must definitely celebrate the good moments! If you haven't already, you should totally read "Battlefield of the Mind" by Joyce Meyer.

    p.s. I go to rockharbor too!!
