Positive Thoughts Only. As someone who is a “glass half empty” type of person this is something that I need to remind myself of daily! I struggle with perfectionism and I constantly have negative thoughts fighting for attention in my head. I find myself thinking that I’m not smart enough, pretty enough or successful enough and it holds me back in all aspects of my life.

I’ve really been struggling with this the last few months as I’ve tried to work on my blog full time. I don’t think I made an official announcement here on the blog but I quit my part time job as a preschool music teacher over the summer to try to turn this blog into a career. And guys, it’s a struggle! I’m constantly comparing myself to other bloggers, wondering why I’m not good enough to be able to make this work like everyone else. I know everyone struggles with this but it’s especially frustrating when you put ALL your time and effort into something and it still doesn’t work out.

But I’ve realized that having a negative attitude about my situation is NOT going to help. When I let those negative thoughts creep in it paralyzes me and I can’t move forward. That’s why I was really excited when Allkiind asked me to style one of their tees. The Positive Thoughts Only tee is perfect for helping me keep those negative thoughts away!

Allkiind is a social impact lifestyle brand that donates 10% of purchases to charitable causes, non-profits, good deeds and other activities to make the world a better place! They’re “In it for good” as they like to say. On their site you’ll find chic, inspirational tees and prints for men and women.

And lucky for you, Allkiind and I are hosting a GIVEAWAY on Instagram! All you have to do is follow Allkiind and I on Instagram and tag a few friends for a chance to win an Allkiind product of your choice!

  1. Aw girl, I totally feel you – it can be super hard as a blogger to not constantly compare yourself to other bloggers “stats”. You have SUCH a great blog and you WILL be awesome as a full time blogger; i just know it!!

  3. I wish I could help but it is a mystery to me why some blogs get a lot of success and others do not. I don’t even understand how blogging for income even works. I read all the “How to” posts, but I still don’t understand. I blog for fun. Love your outfit. That shirt is great and you styled it beautifully.

  4. Great tee and I love the message. It looks perfect with your utility jacket and black, distressed jeans! Hoping things turn around for you soon with this full time blogging venture. It takes a lot of courage to pursue something you are passionate about. Best of luck to you, Jessica.

  5. I can absolutely relate to blogging doubts and worries! I think it happens to all of us! But I absolutely love your T! I feel like this opportunity came to you at the perfect time as well!

  6. I admire your honesty with blogging. I think because blogging is such a visual “job” comparing comes easily. I’ve learned I have had to back off social media at times or unfollow people even for awhile until I come to grips with reality again. I love your t shirt and I know you will succeed in this blog! Keep on keepin’ on!

  7. Ahhh, Jessica, I’ve been blogging regularly (albeit not full-time) this year after about a 2.5 year hiatus. I was discouraged by the very same reasons you’ve highlighted in the post. And, to an extent, I still am. Brands keep talking to the PYTs and if they approach an older blogger, that blogger has to be super cool and super edgy and super different, all of which I am not. Honestly, it’s easier said than done, that whole acknowledgement is the first step gig. There are days when I feel blessed and appreciated, and there are days when I want to just pummel someone/something out of sheer frustration. It doesn’t get (all that much) easier 🙂 but but but, that said, I do realise I have a lot to be grateful for, and I do realise I’ve come a long way since January, and that I really ought to be thankful. To not be complacent and settle but to clearly see what I’ve already accomplished and keep plugging away. As you should to, Jessica. That big OMG WOW project may not yet have landed in our laps but there certainly have been smaller YAY collaborations along the way 🙂 power through xoxo

    1. I disagree – I think you are super cool and unique! But I totally understand where you’re coming from too. I definitely go through those days where I feel great about the blog and then days where I feel totally discouraged. Thank you so much for this comment and your support Sheela!
