Day 70

This lesson is from Thursday March 11th.

I got to see my sister when she finished work. It was a bittersweet visit. We had planned to FaceTime my uncle since he was visiting my Grandpa. Because of the whole covid situation, my sister and I weren’t able to see him, so we can only FaceTime with him, to say our goodbyes.

He was alert, but sedated so he didn’t really say much, but that’s okay. My sister and I talked about all of our memories that we have shared with him. And my other cousins got to say goodbye to him via FaceTime, too. We were all there.

My sister and I talked about all of the times we were at the cottage, all of our sleepovers, all of those cups of tea he made us. My cousins and I slept over at our Grandparents’ house and we had a chocolate egg scavenger hunt. That was a lot of fun!

Today, I will reflect on memories that made me laugh and smile. I will try my hardest to keep them dear to my heart. Mostly I will try to keep the memories alive by telling them to others.

Day 69

This lesson is from Wednesday March 10th.

My Grandpa was in the hospital for a few days now. Unfortunately on the Tuesday, his team of doctors and nurses came to the conclusion that the medication wasn’t helping him get better. So unfortunately they had to take him off his medications. My Grandpa became an end of life patient.

Because of the Covid protocols, the hospitals didn’t allow his grandchildren to visit him. But thankfully with the help of technology, I was able to call my uncle, who was allowed to see him. My uncle put his phone on speaker, and I was able to say my goodbye to my Grandpa. The last time I had saw him it was over a year, since his retirement denied visitors to come through. It was a difficult year not being able to see him. I would always visit him.

I am able to relive one of the last memories we had on the phone.

Today, I learn that saying goodbye to someone, especially someone as dear as my Grandpa, it was incredibly hard. I will embrace every time that I see someone, and appreciate our time with them, because we never when the last time may be.

Day 68

This lesson is from Tuesday March 9th.

I was at my sister’s house for the day, watching my niece. With so many people’s birthdays approaching, I thought it would be fun for my niece and myself to make some crafts for everyone! It was my niece’s Grandma’s birthday, then it was my sister’s birthday, and then a family friend’s birthday.

I traced my niece’s hands and made them into various things. For her Grandma, we made each of her hands into flowers. And then for my sister, we made them into elephants. And for our family friend we just traced her hands. And we added a cute quote. Everyone loved her work of art!

During that time my Grandpa was in the hospital, which made me feel really sad. But helping my niece with her presents to everyone, that cheered me up a bit. It was a nice distraction.

Today, I will try to do something that allows me to give back to others, whether it’s through crafts, or giving someone my time, it would help me distract myself from my own feelings of despair. Sometimes b giving something to others, we are able to forget our own feelings for a bit. Maybe by helping others, or just being there, we are able to cheer ourselves up, too.

Day 67

I finally got all caught up with my blog posts! I couldn’t be more happy about that!

I started this week on a grind. I was determined to finish everything (my blog posts, put away the laundry, and my other to-do items). I feel so proud of myself. I feel so proud of all the women in my life, and around the world, too. I was able to do my yoga practices, and my meditation. I did some light cleaning around the house, as well.

Be sure to start your week off on a grind. Remember to work hard. Your goals are on the horizon, and you are so close to achieving them. Keep on going!

Today, I will begin my week with stamina. I will recognize that my goals are on the horizon, and that I am so close to achieve them. I just need to keep on pushing myself forward. I will remind myself of how proud I become when I accomplish anything that I wish to achieve. Learn to leave no stone unturned.

Day 65

This lesson is from Saturday.

Even when the weekend comes around, you should try you’re best to stick to your routine. I know it’s tempting not to stick to a routine. But it is necessary to help you stick to your routine, that you have for yourself. Mind you, it’s okay if there’s something that pops up, and prevents you from sticking to your routine. Take one day to rest. What I find challenging, is when you skip two days in a row. That’s where I feel like you lose your motivation. It’s harder to regain back, when you skip so many days.

Today, I will try my best to maintain a routine, and keep working towards my goals. Although I know it is challenging to work towards on the weekend. But I know if I start skipping out on too many days, I might not be able to regain my motivation back.

Day 64

On Friday, it felt like my world shattered. It really reminded me that; “Life turns on a dime.” -Stephen King,

“Life turns on a dime. Sometimes towards us, but more often it spins away, flirting and flashing as it goes: so long, honey, it was good while it lasted, wasn’t it?”

-Stephen King, 11/22/63

I received a message from my Dad that my Grandpa (his Dad) was rushed to the hospital since he has the pneumonia. I was crying because I didn’t want anything bad to happen to him. Out of all of my Grandparents, he was the one I was closest with. I couldn’t even imagine what it would be like to live in a world that he doesn’t exist anymore.

I thought back to all of the memories we have shared. And now I just pray and hope that he can get better. Where he lives he isn’t allowed to have any visitors or leave to visit others. So I haven’t seen him in a year, which is obviously the longest I have ever gone without seeing him. So I would call every little while to keep him company. I just would love to talk to him a couple more times.

At the same time, I feel fortunate enough to have had my Grandpa in my life this long. I am almost 27 years old, that makes me feel really lucky.

Today, I will soak in and relish all of the good memories I have. You never know when things in your life can change. Enjoy the goodness in your life. Use them as a reflection for when things go in life. Surround yourself with people who you love, and love you. They are what you need to overcome anything bad. Remember to always live your life to the fullest. Enjoy the company, and enjoy the ride.

Day 63

I know I have told this story before, but I have many new followers since I have told this story. I used to live with my mom, before I moved in with my boyfriend and his family. I didn’t want to bring all of my possessions with me to his house. He already had a lot of people, and things in his house. I left the less important things in my room, with the intention of going back there to grab the rest of my stuff. What made it challenging was, it was a long bus ride in between our places. I never felt comfortable having to carry like four bags, and having it take up extra space on the bus.

And at one point my sister lived with my mom, too. So she had her things there, too. My mom was going to use that room for her friend to stay there for a bit. My sister’s boyfriend drove us to my mom’s house, so we can grab our things. Although because they didn’t really plan a lot of time to go through and sort through everything. We did it the lazy way, and just threw everything into a container, and we would just decide to organize it later. So, that is what we did.

And I got settled into a new place last year with my boyfriend, and his friend, so I was finally ready to deal with my stuff. I am tired of having a lot of things in my life. I thought I had sorted through everything, but when my sister’s boyfriend was cleaning out the basement, he had discovered that I had another container of my things. I sorted through the last container of my things from my old room. I feel quite happy about myself.

It is a freeing experience to part with things that you no longer use anymore. I love knowing that there is someone else out there, who is going to use this way more than me.

Today, I will think twice about adding more possessions into my life, and if these items really add value to my life. Sometimes it’s best to just part ways with it, and give it to someone else. It truly is an liberating feeling of owning less. When you have less items in your life, there is less to worry about. When you have less to worry about, you can truly work on the things that add value and happiness in your life.

Day 62

This lesson is from Wednesday.

I have learnt this some time ago. I have learned that is important and sometimes it is better to take things one day at a time. I often have found that whenever I get excited for something, it often doesn’t go the way I picture it in my mind. Having expectations often leads to disappointments. I like to take things one thing at a time. I try my best to not have any expectations, because then I wouldn’t be faced with any disappointments.

At first it was hard to take things as they were coming my way. Because I have outgrown those habits, I have recognized that I am able to take things one day at a time. It has helped me get by the things I didn’t think I could have gotten through. But here I am, still standing.

Today, I will let go of the need of having expectations, because they often turn into disappointments. How many times have you unintentionally hurt yourself by getting your hopes so? Instead of having any expectations of how things MAY turn out, why don’t we just take life one thing at a time, and learn to go with the flow.

Day 61

This is a lesson from Tuesday.

My cousin has been going through a tough time starting a new job. So I was giving her a pep talk about it, and trying my best to give her a confidence boost. I try to do my best to lift people up every day. I hate when I see people who are sad, or doubting themselves. I thought it was helping her believe in herself. I am more than happy to be the person that helps guides people to be their best self.

She was feeling overwhelmed since it was something that she hasn’t done before. I can totally understand and relate to since I have tried various of jobs throughout the past ten years or so. I feel proud of myself and for what I have accomplished throughout my jobs. I am happy and grateful to help others feel better about themselves, too.

Today, I will try my best to encourage someone to get over their doubts that they are currently experiencing. Help them see their potential and their worth. Help remind someone that they can do anything they want to do.

Day 60

This lesson was learned on Monday.

Since Monday was the first day of the new month, it is important to realize that we are granted a new start. With the month of March, comes spring cleaning, and getting more organized with your house, and your life. It’s time to plant your seeds, and blossom into the beautiful flower you hope to be.

I have been working and thinking of ways I can organize my room. To me, the best way to organize anything is by getting a lot of things. It’s easier because then you have less things to worry about, and organize. Even though spring isn’t going to arrive for another few weeks, it is never too early to start spring cleaning. I am currently working on going through my clothes that I haven’t worn in awhile. Especially since I will be making the transition from my winter clothes to my spring and summer clothes within the upcoming weeks. I love the feeling of things being clean and organized. I love this time of year. Although I do a lot of cleaning and organizing throughout the year, too.

Today, I will try my best to get a jump start on organizing for Spring Cleaning. It is never too early to start, and you don’t have to wait for the arrival of spring to want to organize your things, and household. All I need is some good music, and delicious snacks to get me through the organization process.
