Summer. Yeah...it sounds pretty sweet, doesn't it? Sandy toes, wavy hair, cold fruit and killer vibes. Isn't that what summer is all about? Well...for some people, if not most, a care-free summer is more of an illusion. Something one dreams about during the colder months and partakes in for maybe a week if at all. But then, its back to reality as they say. Back to sitting in that wooden desk, back to sorting through all those papers, back to responding to all those emails, and back to eating things like quinoa.
Yeah, it sucks.
But, it isn't something to be completely angst-y over. At the end of the day, it is human nature to look at what others have and feel somewhat lower. It could even be the littlest of things like seeing a friend's vacation album on Facebook. "Ugh, Casey....you don't need to upload 500 photos to prove you were in Turks & Caicos." And neither do you! "Oh god...why is your life so perfect and mine is of a similar level to a subway rat's."
My words of wisdom for today are: DONT BE SO HARD ON YOURSELF. I get it. We all can get a bit envious that our life isn't in the same exact spot of our friends, colleagues, etc., but it isn't right to compare one's own beginning to another person's middle. So, in an attempt to try to cheer a bunch of you, hopeless, summer-sadness-struck people, I'm sharing with you my 2013 Summer Guide. Shopping is a temporary cure for all ailments, so call me your nurse.
