Day 25

I realized that I made a mistake when I was trying to discuss something with my boyfriend. I was upset and needed someone to talk about things. I became aware that I should have discussed it with him during dinner. I say that we should have talked about this earlier, since it isn’t a good idea to talk about stressful things in an hour before bed.

Discussing these things with my boyfriend before bed, didn’t really help me, because he became upset and stressed out, too. We didn’t really come up with any ideas to resolve this situation. So it had to wait until later to figure out a solution.

Today, if I can, I will not talk about stressful situations before going to bed, as it might interfere with actually falling asleep. Instead, I will try to write about my feelings in a journal, and I will discuss with someone who is involved in the situation, or someone who might be able to solve the situation until it is an appropriate time to discuss something stressful.

Relax

In this edition of Feel Good Friday, I am encouraging everyone to spend some time relaxing. It is important to schedule in some time throughout the week to unwind.

If it’s possible you should spend the last 15 to 20 minutes of your day dedicating time for you to relax. Whether it is you writing in a journal, reading, meditating, practicing yoga, etc. Being able to spend time forgetting about your stresses and worries, is so beneficial to your mind and body.

It is a good feeling to just not think about your stresses. Don’t complicate it, you can simply unwind by watching your show, having a bubble bath. Your mind and body will thank you for it.

If you don’t make the time to relax or unwind, your body will pick a time for you. Trust me, it is better for you to pick the time to relax instead of your body.

Thankful Thursdays #13

I can’t believe I have been posting this for the past 13 weeks now.

This is where I mention all that I am grateful for throughout the week. It is really therapeutic feeling to discuss what you are thankful for.

  1. I got my best friend’s new address, and his birthday is approaching. So I am going to be mailing him a card. I am really excited about that.
  2. I am somewhat glad, even with my acute ankle injury, as it will remind me to slow down. It gives me time to keep up with my blog posts, reading, and to make a bullet journal for October. I am really excited to make one, I haven’t made one before.
  3. My mama buying me dinner tonight, that was nice.
  4. Despite it being Autumn, according to the calendar, I have been having a lot of nice weather — hot and sunny days.
  5. Buying and trying a new tea over the weekend, that was a lot of fun. It was the first time in a long time since my boyfriend and I went to the mall.

I can’t wait to get my reading on! I am really glad to be reading lots again. I’m going to be doing a read-a-thon.

Thankful Thursdays #6

Every Thursday, I like to reflect on what I am most thankful for during the week.

  1. I am thankful for my sister calling me the other night. We haven’t seen each other much since the whole pandemic. So being able to hear her voice was really nice. We got to see each other last Thursday so that was a lot of fun.
  2. I am so happy that sports are back. I really have been enjoying my time watching them. My favourite sport to watch is hockey. There are about five, six games on throughout the day.
  3. Since I am still in the early stages of decluttering (for once and for all), I have told my boyfriend that our coffee table and night tables are clutter free zones. I have been discovering that my boyfriend would dump his stuff there instead of dealing with any of it. But I still love him.
  4. I am thankful for my walk yesterday where I was able to read my book and started writing in my journal outside under a tree. It was a nice change of scenery that realigned my focus and inspiration again.
  5. Finally, I am thankful for the weight of all of my items that I have given away. I feel really proud of myself. The longer you hold on something that no longer brings you joy, the weight becomes even more heavy. It’s just better to cut the ties with these items. I am also grateful that I have no desire to shop for new things anymore. I used to be a big shopper a few years ago, and now I have no desire to go out clothes shopping. Although, the things I have bought for myself, were blouses, and skirts which I wear where I need to dress up. I also would like to be an accountant, but now the offices are starting to get phased out, from everyone working from home. I feel like that might become the new thing now. But I do love dressing up, so it’s not like those clothes were a total waste. It actually made me realize that I did have a lot of clothes. It gave me that extra motivation to depart with things I no longer wear anymore. Once you let all of the weight go, the more freeing it becomes.

Change of Scenery

Today, I read and wrote in my journal in outside in a nearby hiking trail. It was quite peaceful, and thankfully wasn’t too hot. I made myself an iced tea (hot tea served over ice) to quench my thirst and keep me hydrated, and I had packed my book, and my journal, and began my walk. It was nice to get some exercise outside.

I really enjoyed myself. I am definitely going to do this again. It made me think more deeply since I was surrounded by nature and in the sun.

This or That

My sister bought me this journal for Christmas. In the notebook it asks me all of these different questions about me and my life. I thought this was a fun way of sharing more fun tidbits about me. I would be sharing more of my answers, at a later date.

Although, another fun fact about is that I have never been on an air plane before, but it was one of the choices I have picked. It is something I would love to do, well, not at this moment since the whole pandemic is happening. It is definitely one of my upcoming goals to do in the near future.
