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.

Yoga

Every week I like to write small ways we can boost our happiness. I know that some people, like me, are still in their winter. Going through winter can be really difficult, because the majority of the days are dark, without a lot of sun. Although I realize that it can be worse if you are in Alaska, since they go months without sunshine. Winter can just be unbearable. So I have thought of ways that can boost our happiness, with very little effort, and mostly at a cost of nothing. I like to call it Feel Good Fridays. I was inspired by talking to one of my cousins because she was going through life, and came to me, looking for ideas to help boost her energy and motivation. Which is basically how this blog idea was inspired.

The other night, I couldn’t fall asleep, so I thought I would practice doing some yoga. There are various types of yoga, there is calming yoga, and there can be workouts, like core strengthening added to yoga poses, too. I am slowly starting to get into a yoga routine again because of the other night.

If you are new to yoga you can find lots of beginners videos on YouTube. Since this might be a new habit for everyone. But if you like yoga, and would like to practice yoga every day. I suggest starting small. You can find 10 minutes videos. Then before you know you will like to do more. I find it’s easy to start a habit by starting out and taking baby steps, and then you will be able to add more to it.

Yoga has a ton of benefits, aside from the obvious of making you more flexible, but it has other benefits, too. Yoga can help you with digestion, it can strengthen your immune system, it can also help you sleep better.

I have always loved practicing yoga, so I am glad that I am starting to get into a habit again.

Thankful Thursdays #32 – February 4th, 2021

Each week, I like to think and appreciate what I am thankful for throughout the week. I encourage everyone to do the same. You don’t have to write it, or type it out, but it does help, but stop stopping whatever you are focusing on, you can take a pause to think about what you are thankful for during the week.

Here is my list.

  1. I am happy that my mom’s move went well. She is slowly starting to settle in her new place. I am happy for her.
  2. I am grateful that my mom bought me some lunch the other day, that was really nice of her.
  3. I have been slowly making time to jot some ideas down for my stories. I am really excited to start writing again. I have been brainstorming some cool ideas, so I am going to bring back Writing Wednesdays again! I normally write a short story, or a chapter of something I am working on.
  4. I am thankful for the continued love and support I am receiving from my all of my followers. Keep up with the amazing support. It makes me so happy that I can inspire so many people.
  5. I am glad that there were a few days where the weather was nice, which made it really enjoyable to go for a walk. I try to go out as often as I can.

Let me know what you are grateful for in the comments. 🙂

Never Quit

I love when a new month begins on a Monday! It’s one of my favourite things, because it is like a double fresh start – a new month, and a new week. I found the perfect quote for my Weekly Quote.

I feel like if I didn’t have to go through a lot of stresses last month, I feel like I could have used more time to accomplish my goals. But regardless of what happened last month, I am only moving forward this time. There is no time for me to sulk about the past. It’s time to move forward, and continue to work hard on what I wish to achieve for myself. I cannot wait to accomplish my goals this month, and for this week as well.

I hope everyone is granted with the extra motivation to get out there and accomplish all that you wish to do.

Thankful Thursdays #23

This is where I talk about all of my grateful moments throughout the week. I encourage everyone to do the same. If you don’t have the time or resources to think about you are thankful, you can still spend some time thinking about what you are thankful for.

Here is my list.

  1. Many of you may not know this, but a year ago today, I got hit by a car on my walk to work. I didn’t suffer any life-threatening injuries, not even a broken bone. I think about how lucky and how grateful I am for being able to not suffer from that accident.
  2. My roommate bought us buns and deli meats, so I made myself a delicious sandwich for lunch.
  3. I am grateful that I had the time to take a nap, since I woke up with a headache, but I’m feeling a bit better now.
  4. I got to watch a football game yesterday, which is pretty odd for the NFL to be on a Wednesday. Although I know there have been several games that have played on a Wednesday before.
  5. I am thankful for having motivation to make changes and better habits in my life. All in all I feel proud and happy for myself again.

I would love to know what you are thankful for.

This is something I have been working on and thinking about. It isn’t done yet, obviously. But I will keep everyone posted.

Hall of Fame – The Script

This week for Music Mondays, I picked Hall of Fame by The Script. I love this song because it reminds me that I can be and do anything I set myself out to do. It also reminds me that I was born with greatest. born to shine. It is such an uplifting and motivational song.

“When your, standing in the hall of fame
And the world’s gonna know your name
‘Cause you burn with the brightest flame
And the world’s gonna know your name
And you’ll be on the walls of the hall of fame”

-The Script, Hall of Fame

#ThatPower – Will.i.am ft. Justin Bieber

Today’s song of the week is #ThatPower by Will.i.am and Justin Bieber. It used to be one of my favourite songs. It samples lyrics from electronic duo Daft Punk‘s Better, Faster, Stronger.

To me, this song is about keeping your motivation and always moving forward. And that no what happens, you can achieve your goals. And not caring about what your haters may say or think about you in the process.

“I stay on that hustle, I flex that little muscle
Hate to bust your bubble
I’m on that other level
I’ma take it higher and high and high and higher
I stay in fly attire
Keeping burning like that fire”

-Will.i.am ft. Justin Bieber, #ThatPower

Day 117 of 192

This is Saturday’s item.

When I was going through my possessions, I found some of my old lip balms. I have no idea as to why I have kept these. I probably had these for seven years, maybe even longer.

But the best thing about starting with stuff like expired items, whether it’s medication, make up or anything else. It is easy for us to discard these items. When we start with these items, we are building the strength and confidence for the harder items.

If you like to start your own decluttering journey, start with these items, and allow yourself to build up confidence. Remember you don’t have to purge your life in one day, always start small and keep on moving forward.

Even if you remove a few items from your life, you will be able to notice the benefits of living with less.

WWW Wednesdays – September 16th, 2020

In this post I will be talking about books! Reading books is one of my favourite past times. It is such a relaxing and peaceful habit.

This post it answers the following questions,

  1. What have I finished reading?
  2. What am I currently reading?
  3. What will I read next?
  1. What have I finished reading?

I really enjoyed this book. To Kill A Mockingbird is such an amazing book. I would recommend it, although in my opinion To Kill A Mockingbird is the better one of the two, but this book is still amazing.

2. What am I currently reading?

This book has always been one of my favourites. It is so inspiring to me. I have seen the movie countless times, and I am going to reread this, because I can’t travel, nor do I feel comfortable at the moment to travel somewhere else. Even if it is still in my country, like I was planning. It’s like I’m travelling somewhere new even though I am not physically travelling anywhere. I like that effect in books. It’s also one of the books I recommend to others.

3. What will I read next?

Because of Tuesday’s Top Ten of blue covered books I owe, I thought now would be the perfect time to read this book. It will give me some added motivation and inspiration. I loved the book so much, so reading everyone’s stories will make me happy.

Liebster Award #2

I feel so special to be nominated for this award. Thank you so much Yvonne for the nomination. Her blog is really insightful and inspirational, you should all check it out, joyfulchangewithyvonne.com!

The award is a pay-it-forward acknowledgement, from one blogger to another, that they appreciate your blog and promote others to check it out!

Here are the rules! Everyone that I wanted to nominate for this award, has just recently won this award. And I already nominated a bunch of people for my previous award, so I don’t want to overwhelm everyone with more questions.

Rules

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you, and provide a link to their blog
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions
  • Notify your nominees once you have uploaded your post

My Questions

  1. Who do you feel most comfortable with, and why?
    I feel most comfortable with my sister and my boyfriend, My sister because I grew up with her. When we were younger, I would spend my weekends in her room having a sleepover. We played Barbies, she would read us stories, we would watch movies together. We were always close when we were younger, and we are still close now, but sometimes it can be challenging since life is busy.
    I’m comfortable with my boyfriend because we have been together for five years, and we live together. We are comfortable telling each other our hopes and dreams with another. We can be vulnerable with each other.
  2. Who is the kindest person you know? Describe their kindness.
    This one is challenging, because I know so many kind people. I would have to say my second cousin is the nicest person I know, because we are able to talk about all sorts of subjects. We give each other advice, and she has great things to say to me. And she even offered my boyfriend and I to spend a few nights at her, when our household was becoming too stressful for me. She thinks of the right things to say to me regarding feedback and encouragement to face my fears. I just enjoy talking to her so much.
  3. What is your favorite blog that you’ve posted? Why?
    This one is challenging because I have written so many blog posts… I would probably say, Second Chance, the one where I got hit by a car, because I was inspiring other people to chase their dreams, and to never give up. If you would like to read it, here is the article. I was very lucky that day, because I walked away with only bruises.

    I am also enjoying writing my short story, called Taxi Driver, because I enjoy writing, and sharing others my creativity.

    https://threeyellowdaisies.ca/category/taxi-driver/

    I feel like there are probably other ones that I have enjoyed writing, but those were the first ones to come to mind.
  4. If there was a way you could infuse an act of kindness habit into the everyday life of all people in the world, this habit as natural as the daily action of brushing their teeth, what would that kindness habit be?
    I would say spreading joy and positive vibes to others. It could be as simple as, “I like your scarf!” Or “You have a lovely smile, or eyes.” When we compliment people, it not only lifts other people’s spirits, but ourselves as well. Or even just let people know that they are doing a good job with raising their children, or any kind of service; let them know that you’re proud of them.

My Questions
1. What is your favourite three course meal?
2. What is something that makes you angry?
3. Would you rather have a magical machine that cleans your dishes, or washes your clothes?
4.What was the longest span of time you have gone without any sleep?
