FOTD: May 20, 2018

I know I haven't been active on this blog as much I would like to be, hence why I am writing this message tonight. I guess you can say that I am very busy with my life. I work full-time during the day and managed to take on an additional part-time job in the evening for some extra money. 

In addition to this, I have a new man in my life. It has been over a year (late 2016, to be exact) since I had anyone in my life, so when I met Sumit (my new boyfriend) I guess you could say my life has been busier than ever before.

I have so much to be thankful for as I have so much to be proud of. I am very content in my life, but I know that my life can be much better than what it is. I've noticed a pattern; however, when thinking, that I tend to overthink more than I should. That overthinking is worse than thinking, as overthinking is worse than not thinking at all. I've come to realization that overthinking is a sign of rumination (and ruination) and can do more harm than good. 

When it comes to overthinking, I truly believe that it can create problems. Especially problems that do not exist. Instead of living happily in the moment, I always think hypothetically. "What if this happens?" or "What if this doesn't happen?" And thinking hypothetically truly has no solution, as it is clearly the wrong way to think. When you start to overthink, you tend to dip into the realm of the hypothetical. This isn't good. 

I've been really looking at my life practically. What can I do to improve without overthinking about it? What can I do to make it better than what it is without thinking hypothetically? Recognizing and acknowledging the problem is vital, as is eliminating it without giving it too much value. That is my approach to solving my own problems and it works. 

Today I realize how much I love the Japonesque Velvet Touch PrimerLa Prairie Skin Caviar Foundation + Concealer, KIKO Milano Sculpting Touch Creamy Contour StickUrban Decay Eyeshadow in Serious, Smokeout and in Loaded, eyeko Fat Liquid EyelinerEstee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara, Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil and Kylie Cosmetics Velvet Lipstick in Commando and in Bare. And in case you are wondering why, these are the products I am wearing it in my photos today. I also want to add that I am also very obsessed with applying the Giorgio Armani Beauty Armani Prima Glow-On Moisturizing Balm to my face before applying any makeup. This product is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

On a serious note, I haven't ate all day long, so I am thinking of having something great for dinner. As much as I want to have pasta, I am kind of too exhausted to cook right now, so perhaps I may just order a pizza from the local pizza joint here in town. In fact, that is what I will do right now. I hope everyone is doing well and having an amazing evening.
