Champagne Wishes


Another Monday down.  Work has been piling up lately but I try not to let that stress or bring me down.  At these moments, I just try to remember how hard I have worked to get to the position that I am at now.  I try to remember back to those days of camping out at the law school library or staying up almost all night studying for the bar exam.  It was a lot of hard work, so, I don't throw myself a pity party.  Instead, I try to remember back to the Maria that hoped and prayed would be right where I am right now...swamped drafting and prepping for hearings but secretly loving every minute.  Does anyone else have ways to get your mind off of stress?

  2. Great outfit Maria! Love the hint of bling on your collar.

    I am a very laid back person and rarely stresses out. But I do stress, I think I online shop even more than I do now.

  3. Love how polished the leopard looks in this outfit!
    I too try to take a step back and realize where I am is a product of all the hard work I put into it, and that at the end of the day, I can only be in control of what I've done and proud of it. Sometimes, it takes a gym visit, window shop stroll or DIY night to de-stress. :)

  10. I love the sweater- I wore a similar purple one just yesterday to work! As far as stress, I don't deal with it that well either. I just try to relax and enjoy the little moments.

  14. I shop when I get stressed! Or bite the skin from the inside of my mouth...nasty habit but it calms me. I've been super stressed the past couple weeks and nothing helps me better than seeing my kids smile.

  15. Love the sweater. I stress a lot! I am so overwhelmed with work that its actually making me reconsider my career choice. I think a little stress is ok and normal but when your health or family suffers, then its time to make a change. I admire you. you are bada$@. Keep going!

  16. Maria, you look stunning! I am totally in love with this outfit. I'm totally tempted to buy that sweater since it's on super sale. I get overwhelmed at work and just from life in general easily so when I'm feeling in over my head I just sit down, relax and take a bath or read a good book. Letting life's worries go away for awhile always calms me down! Congrats on all of your accomplishments :)
