Life Update! | New House, Birthday & Tattoos ? |

Hello again…

I really have to stop disappearing, but this time it was for something good! I swear!🥺
Pls let me explain.

In one of my posts a while back a wrote about how we (me and my boyfriend) are moving back to our home town in Texas.

We made it, things have been GREAT! It’s been so good to see everyone again.

BUT the reason I was gone for a while was because we had been working on renovating our home!!
Getting things finished and move-in ready took longer than we expected…

It had originally started with refurbishing our hardwood floors.

Before
After

Then after the floors, we got ambitious..


I just wanted to sand and repaint the cabinets in our kitchen, but it needed some serious lovin’ to the whole kitchen.
So we decided to tackle it!

Here are the before and after pictures.

Before
Before
After
After

Can you see why it took longer than expected! 😂
Not to mention it’s been a steady 98-102 degrees here on top of all this work we were doing in such a short time.

Thankfully things are perfect. I am SO blessed and beyond grateful!

We finished just in time for my birthday got moved in, and my childhood BEST FRIEND from the 6th grade flew out from Chicago to help me decorate, and to celebrate my 24th birthday this year!
Things couldn’t have worked out better❤️
Happy Birthday to me! (Sept 12)
For her visit, we went to get tattoos as something special to do for my birthday!

DUH! Great idea.
I got my favorite animal!

I fell in love! I needed more.

So today…
I got this!

I found it on Pinterest a while ago but never actually thought I’d have the guts to do it.

Let me just say I’m SO glad I did!

I’m completely obsessed.

I feel new confidence inside myself. I feel proud to have stepped out of my comfort zone, and wear my heart on my sleeve…
Literally. 😂

Anyways I thank you for stopping by to listen.

Thank you to my 200 followers! I appreciate the shit out of you!

Your support means the world to me!

Affirmations of the week!

Affirmations of the week!

Hello

Welcome, to this week’s Affirmations of the week!

Positive Affirmations Every Monday!

Many of us struggle daily with our inner negative Nancy. Although, I have discovered a way to block out negative thoughts. It helps to write down positive quotes and affirmations that make me feel confident and more at peace.

 When I find myself in a mood for the day, I refer back to the positive quotes and affirmations I’ve previously written to help snap out of the negativity. Happiness is a choice you have to choose every day. I know all too well how easy it can be to fall into that overthinking cycle of negativity and how difficult it can be to get out. That’s the reason I make these posts every Monday to help others like me break that cycle. 

Positive Quotes

Stop worrying about what tomorrow may bring.
Focus on what you can control.
Stay positive. Enjoy today.
Expect good things to come.

KARen Salmansohn

Be honest with yourself about what you really want to accomplish.
Sometimes we make goals based on what others think we should do.

I believed in myself, even if nobody else did.
There was a confidence in me.
My need to express myself was so big.
I would call it my fire. My drive.

Juliette binoche

I am glad that we are sometimes happy and sometimes not.
You get your wisdom working by
having different emotions.

yoko ono

There’s a future version of me who’s proud I was strong enough.

Your trauma is valid

Your trauma is valid

No matter what ANYONE says,

Your trauma is still valid even if:

  • You never told anyone
  • You can’t remember all of it
  • It happened a long time ago
  • People didn’t believe you
  • You are feeling better now
  • It didn’t develop into PTSD
  • Your life wasn’t threatened
  • You know people who have been through “worse”
  • You didn’t realize it was a traumatic until later on

You never know what others could be going through.
YOU are never alone!

Positive Quotes

Being judged by others means that you’re that important

that they have the time to think about you and talk about you.

Relax.
Let every moment be what it’s going to be. What’s meant to be will come your way, what’s not will fade away.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch a smile, a kind word,
a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring.
All of which have the potential to turn a life around.

Leo Buscaglia

Broken crayons still color.

Be your own biggest fan.

Love yourself and give yourself the things that you need.

mel robbins

It’s okay to put yourself first.

Motivation may get you started

but it takes discipline to keep you going.

Get one good habit down consistently

and congratulate yourself before adding another good habit.

Never put the key to your happiness in somebody else’s pocket.

Affirmations

  • I am working on me, for me.
  • I let go of all the things that make me anxious.
  • I love ALL versions of myself.
  • Today I am going to shine.
  • I am living my best life.
  • I have many reasons to be blessed
  • I feel gratitude for the little things
  • I am exactly who I need to be at this moment
  • I am comfortable being alone
  • I am a person that I can admire

That’s all for today!

If your reading this know that you are AWESOME😍

I hope you have a great day but even better week!

Using our senses can help reduce your stress, anxiety, and depression

Using our senses can help reduce your stress, anxiety, and depression

Did you know that using your 5 senses can help boost your mood?

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Stressed?

Does everyday feel like another day wasted to bad vibes?

If your feeling fed up and looking for new perspective in life try these out:

Smell

Seek out scent.

Everyone has that one smell that can transform them back in time to when they were little, or perhaps even a scent that smells like vacation, smelling a favorite flower, the air after raining in spring. Anything you can think of that brings you home inside your mind. Seek out a scent that will help to clear your cloudy mind. (aromatherapy)

Touch

Take a cold shower

There are so many studies out there that can prove how good a cold shower every-now-and-then can be for your mental health and physical health. Taking a cold shower for up to 5 minutes, 2 to 3 times per week helps:

  • Increase endorphins
  • Improves metabolism
  • Improves circulation of blood flow
  • Helps fight off illness

Embrace the weather

Get some sun.

The lack of sunlight can affect your mood. So get up, put some sunscreen on and let your skin glow!

Rainy day? No problem

Rain can calm your mind and relax your body. Cuddle up with a book, journal, or a good movie. Let the rain act as white noise in the background, and reflect on your blessings. Feel your shoulders lighten up as you meditate to the sound of the rain.

Hugs

Hug your friends, family, spouse, children, don’t forget about your pets too! The embrace of someone else is always calming.

Hearing

Stop and listen

Communication is always good on your mental. Talk to somebody who will listen, get things out of your head and off your chest.

Listening to music that matches your mood always does the trick. Music induces relaxation. It makes you move, even if it’s just tapping your foot.

Vision

Look for reasons to be happy

Find some old pictures that might bring back good memories. Remember how you felt when this picture was being taken, what was going on?

Go for a walk and think about how lucky we are to be on this earth.
Pick a spot somewhere and allow yourself to daydream.

People watch.
No judgement, no thoughts just mindless watching.
( You can do this with animals and nature too!)

Taste

Cook with mindfulness

When you prepare your meals, bring awareness to how it got here.

Be thankful for the farmer that took the time to care and grow something that will fill your body with health and energy.
Think about others in areas who aren’t fortunate enough to have home cooked meals everyday.

Movement, relaxing, eating, and touching are essential in human experiences. We all do these things without thinking about it, but what if we bring out attention to how this affects our minds and bodies in incredible ways. Instead, let’s all be more mindful of how senses can bring us joy in life and repeat!

Self-Sabotage & Regret

Self-Sabotage & Regret

On a good day I enjoy life like a hippy.

I feel blessed with nature

the earth is trippy

animals are precious and innocent.

I wish I enjoyed life like this everyday

thankful for everything around me.

But things can’t be that simple for me

can they be?

I enjoy life but I also hate it.

I sit there wishing I could be doing this

Well, what if I tried that?

No!

You wouldn’t last.

Harassed by my past

My parents always told me

Don’t waste your time on dumb shit

And just like that

My day up and went

Self-Sabotage & Regret

A day wasted, I’ve spent

Countless years replaying the past

Overthinking is the forecast

Not anymore.

NOT ANYMORE!

Being relaxed, at peace with yourself, confident, emotionally neutral loose, and free-floating, these are the keys to successful performance in almost everything.

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

It’s not stress that kills us,
it is our reaction to it.

Hans Selye

Stop repeatedly going over the issues that stresses you out,
the more you do the worse it will feel.

Find your ocean each day.

Hey Yall!

Hey Yall!

Sorry I’ve been MIA..

I’ve got some big things going in my life.

I took some much needed time off from work. I was too overwhelmed and focused I had no time to post or write or do anything I enjoyed. All I did was sleep work and eat not health foods. Went through some tough days and needed to take a step back and focus on myself FIRST before anything else, but I’m back home now. The boyfriend and I are looking for a nice apartment somewhere peaceful and quiet to call home. I’m so excited for that, wish us luck!

We are looking into getting new jobs that would be really good for us both!

Things are great, and I have so many reasons to be happy.🥰

Although we have lots to do! Monday is gonna be the beginning of a very busy week!

I’ve made some updates on my website!

I did a few changes on my website be sure to check it out!

Cya soon❤️🌻
