For the sake of my Happiness Project, I ended up changing the date of my publication date on my previous blog posts. That way all of March Happiness Project’s resolutions and goals can be found in March, and not scattered through March, April and May. Thank you again for your patience and understanding.
I apologize for being so busy these past two months. I’m not sure if you have heard, but my Grandpa passed away two months ago. It has been the most challenging, and heartbreaking past few weeks. I feel like I’ve been going through a lot. He was the closest person I have ever lost. He was my best friend.
I have been trying to get all caught up with everything on here. But at the same time it feels like everyone wants my attention, and needs my help. I know I should put myself first, and my desires first. But at the same time, I always struggle to say no. But I do all of these things for my niece’s sake, and her benefit.
There are days where my sister and her boyfriend need me to watch my niece. And some days, I feel like drained by my other obligations, but I say yes, so I can see my niece, and spend time with her.
I am slowly starting to work towards things I want to do for myself, and things that would make me happy. I guess I just feel drained because there is so many things I want to do, and work towards, but I have falling a bit behind. I am now finding down time to get things done.
I made a list of some of the things that I need and want to get done. This has been so helpful, because I don’t have to get a mental note out of everything that I would like to get done. And now that I have a better visual of what needs to get done. I can see how to spend my time more wisely. This will help me stay motivated and on track of achieving everything I set out for myself.
I can’t wait to get all caught up again. I appreciate the love and support from everyone. Please continue to send me positive messages, and support. My goal is get caught up with things by June, if I can. I am determined to work through a lot on my To-Do List. I can’t wait to hear from all of you again. ❤
I feel bad, because I have been so busy with everything. Just over a month ago, my Grandpa passed away, and that was a lot to deal with. So I took a bit of time to myself, and to grieve over his loss. There isn’t a day that doesn’t go by, that I don’t think about him.
So I am slowly, but surely catching up with everything. I appreciate all of your love, and support during this time. Thank you so much!
I am so sorry for being a bit M.I.A. these past few days. I have been helping my sister, and my mom with some things. The days seemed to go by a lot faster than they usually do. Here am I trying to catch up with everything. I will definitely make more time to stay on top of my blog.
I hope everyone is doing well, and I can’t wait to get back in touch with everyone. I would love to know what everyone has been up to these past few days. Let me know in the comments.
Thank you for the continued support and love throughout my blog journey. I love it.
I love this song so much! I figured it is the perfect song for 2021. It’s all about trusting yourself, and the universe by doing something you wouldn’t normally do. I sort of did this year. I quit my job because I didn’t feel comfortable with the whole coronavirus pandemic, so I decided to focus on my blog, and pursue thinking of a cool idea for my novels. In hope that one day I become a bestselling author, blogger. For the most part I feel proud of myself. And I feel very fortunate enough that my boyfriend is still working for us.
I hope that this is the year we trust ourselves and the universe even more. I know that it is scary, but I think things will get better. We just have to keep the faith that they will improve.
“If you trust your rebel heart, ride it into battle Don’t be afraid, take the road less traveled Wear out your boots and kick up the gravel Don’t be afraid, take the road less traveled on”
A few months ago, I wanted to have 15,000 views as my yearly total of views. And I am so happy to report that I have reached my goal! Thank you so much for all of the love, likes, comments, and positive words. It means more than anyone will ever know.
Please continue showing your love for me and for my blog in the following year. Cheers!
I am a huge believer that whatever you manifest into the universe, comes back to you. That’s why I always try to keep my thoughts positive. Whenever I think positively, positive things tend to come my way. And whenever I say the things that I don’t want to happen, they typically come true. But if you are able to use the same energy for something bad, you may as well put forth positive energy instead.
Think back to your last bad day, where you kept on thinking to yourself, “What else can happen?” or something along those lines, and the day just seems to keep on getting worse. That’s because you are sending out to the universe that you want bad things to keep on happening to you. It’s all a matter of changing your thoughts from negative to positive.
This is my vision board, that I keep by my bed, so it’s the last thing I see at night and the first thing I see in the morning. These are the ideal times to reflect on my goals and how I envision my future. I encourage everyone to have a vision board, because it really showcases what you truly want in the future.
Your vision board can entail anything from quotes, to pictures of your dream job, your dream house, a pet, anything you would like to have in the future.
For me, the outer cue cards are mostly quotes about being positive and being grateful. In the middle you can see a cut out of my hand that I traced to add more of a personal touch to my vision board, which features specific and personal goals.
I know this isn’t the best photo, but this was the only one I could capture without a shadow from my phone. Starting from the top left corner, and continuing to go right, then down, then left, then back up to the top.
“Girl, you already have what it takes!”
“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”
“Working hard is important, but there is something that matters even more, believing in yourself.”
“Never give up on a dream, just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.”
“You are the author of your life, if you don’t like how it goes, write it differently.”
“Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe.” -Oprah Winfrey
“Wear gratitude like a cloak, and it will feed every corner of your life.” -Rumi
“Know your limits, then ignore them.”
“You are what you manifest.”
“The key is not to worry about being successful, but to instead work towards being significant – and the success will naturally flow.” -Oprah Winfrey
“If you want it, work for it!”
“Dream. Believe. Do. Repeat.”
“I am open to the flow of great abundance in all areas of my life.”
“The best is yet to come.”
“Be the energy you want to attract.”
“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times. If one only remembers to turn on the light.” LUMOS! -Dumbledore
For those who haven’t read Harry Potter, Lumos is a spell the students say so their wands can illuminate which allows them to see in the dark. Lumos stems from the Latin word lumens meaning light or lamp.
And I was a bit creative because there are five aspects of life such as, work, health, spiritual, learning and social. So I figured what better way to broadcast these five aspects of my life then by tracing of my own hand.
I). The pinkie finger is Work: Be my own boss. Meaning that I would love to be able to be a full time blogger and influencer. I would just rather work for myself, and achieve my goals, than having to work for someone else’s dreams. I would have a lot of freedom of making my schedule and keeping my profits. Having had this time off from work due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was an eye opener and it made me realize that having to work for someone else, isn’t what I want to do right now.
II). The ring finger is Health: Maintain a healthy lifestyle. I would be able to do this by ensuring that I exercise more and eat healthy whole foods. This one can be a challenge because I love chocolate and other sweets. I know that those are okay, in moderation, but sometimes, I just don’t understand moderation. LOL!
III). The middle finger is Learning: Always read and learn new languages. I’m sure there are other things I want to learn too. But I want to read all of the books on my bookshelves first, and they are a lot of books that need to be read. Right now I am learning French (again), as a refresher, although I have been able to remember a lot of words and phrases from high school. I always love learning new things.
IV). The index finger is Social: Make time for family and friends. I haven’t been able to hang out with my family and friends since the coronavirus lock down. I know that I will be able to hang out with them soon enough.
V). The thumb is Spiritual: Practice yoga and meditation, and always follow my heart. ❤ I believe that meditation heals and resets the soul. I feel like whenever you are stressed out, especially, meditation helps by sorting out and guides you with the answers to your problems. I love practicing yoga because it helps relaxes me as well, and it allows me to flexible and release stress. Practicing meditation and yoga helps me be mindful of my breathing and it provides me with enlightenment. Following my heart is always important to because not everyone understands my feelings, the only person that does, is me. At the end of the day, I must do what is best for me.
I hope seeing my vision board inspires you to think of some cool ideas for your own. I would love to see your future boards in the comments. And as always feedback and encouragement is appreciated.
