Thankful Thursday #30 – January 21st, 2021

I feel so honoured to be apart of the blog community. I love reading about people’s lives, success, and what they have learnt from their missteps. Even though we might hate to admit when things went wrong, but that’s where we learn the most things about ourselves.

I would love to read all of the things you are thankful for throughout the week. Here is my list.

  1. The motivation of wanting to write a story. Although finding the time, is another issue. I am thankful that I have the desire to write a story. I have been really wanting to get back into writing. Hopefully when my schedule becomes less busy, I can get back into writing again.
  2. I am thankful for the time I spent cleaning and tidying my room, so I am able to enjoy spending it in a clean environment.
  3. I am glad that I got to spend an extra day with my boyfriend, he took a day off throughout the week. We got to spend more time than we would have.
  4. I am grateful for being able to talk to my friends and family members via text messages since we live far away, and can’t travel to see each other.
  5. I am grateful that I am able to stay true to reading 30 minutes a day despite how busy some of my days have been.

Day 19

I couldn’t really sleep the night before, so I decided it’s best to do something productive with my time. At the same I was always doing something to fall asleep, as well. I began reading some of my book, that helped a bit, but it still wasn’t enough. I began writing in my journal, because I thought maybe I was feeling a bit too stressed out about things. I started thinking about some writing ideas. After I released my thoughts, I just laid there, trying not to think about anything for a couple of minutes.

That didn’t work, so I put on my favourite show, Grey’s Anatomy. That is my comfort show, I must have watched it a million times already. And that seemed to do the trick.

Whenever I can’t fall asleep, I will try to do something productive with my time, instead of just laying there, tossing and turning in my bed. If that doesn’t work, I will try to resort into watching a show, or a movie to help me fall asleep. Or vow to myself to make an evening routine.

This is a post about us discussing one of the books in our To Be Read List and talking about why we would like to read it. I would love to know what is on your To Be Read List.

I don’t know who knows this, but I have a lot of books on my To Be Read List. I wish I had enough to read all of the books in the whole world. But I am trying my best to make a big dent with my books this year.

One of the books on my To Be Read List is The Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I would love to read this because it has romance, history and fantasy with the time travelling. It is about a girl named Claire who is celebrating her second honeymoon with her husband after World War II, but she suddenly becomes an “Outlander” when she is magically transported into 1743. I want to read the books, so I can watch the show on Netflix. I always prefer to read the books, before I watch the movie, or show.

What is something you wish to read soon?

Day 18

It’s important to try and schedule a day, or a half day of relaxation once a week. To have a day where you can truly enjoy yourself is a great feeling. I know they are people who are parents, and may have a difficult time being able to find time to relax, especially with young children. But hopefully you are still able to find some time to yourself. It can do wonders to the body.

My day has always been Sundays because I love eating great food and watching football. I have always loved watching football. It’s one of my favourites past times. I also like to relax by reading, taking a bath, and cooking.

Today, I will find time so I can relax throughout my day. It is important for us to unwind, and not have time to worry about errands, or anything else.

  1. What have I finished reading?

This book was amazing! I really enjoyed reading it. I liked that it was easy to be able to relate to Jay Gatsby. I haven’t read this book before, but I have seen the movie, the one that Leonardo DiCaprio stars in, back in 2013. I loved the movie, and I can’t wait to watch it again this weekend. It was a short read, which is good, because I didn’t have a lot of time for reading this week.

2. What am I currently reading?

I haven’t officially started this one yet, but I will start reading it tomorrow night.

3. What will I be reading next?

I saw a lot of commercials for this show, and when I was researching where to watch it, I realized it was based off of a book. It made me really excited that my library had it, and I was able to get it fairly quickly. I cannot wait to start reading this.

This is a post about us discussing one of the books in our To Be Read List and talking about why we would like to read it. I would love to know what is on your To Be Read List.

One of my books on my never-ending To Be Read List is The Time Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger. I have had this book on my book shelf for a few years now, and I would love to actually read this book this year. I have seen the movie twice, and on the second time I had watched the movie, I made a vow that I would actually read the book. I have started expanding my genres a bit. I like fantasy since I loved Harry Potter, and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. But one of my goals is to read more fantasy books. I cannot wait to read this book, and compare it to the movie. And then I can reward myself by watching the movie again.

  1. What have I finished reading?

Because the week prior I didn’t have much time to read (unfortunately), I hate when that happens. But this week I was able to finish two books.

This was an amazing book, I was happy to pick this book up again. It had me on the edge of my seat. I definitely do not want to give away too much. If you think thrillers, you are definitely going to like this one.

And

This was such a lovely book, especially since I read it during the Christmas season. I think it made it that much more magical. I loved this book. I can’t wait to buy it for sister, so she can read it soon.

2. What am I currently reading?

I have seen the movie with Leonardo DiCaprio back in 2013 with my mom, and I loved it so much. I cannot wait to finally read the book. I realized that I bought the book, twice, so I ended up giving one to my sister for Christmas. It is a fairly short book, so she shouldn’t have a problem with it. I can’t wait to talk about it with her. I can’t wait to watch the movie again.

3. What will I read next?

Goodreads Mondays #12 – January 4th, 2021

I forgot to write about this yesterday, so here it is.

This is a post about us discussing one of the books in our To Be Read List and talking about why we would like to read it. I would love to know what is on your To Be Read List.

I have had Anne of Green Gables on my bookshelf for a few years now, and I haven’t gotten around to this classic yet. My boyfriend and I were planning to take a trip to Eastern Canada about two years ago, but we just never gotten around to take a vacation. And for those that may not know, the book takes place in Eastern Canada. I would have loved to have read it before we vacationed out there. But hopefully we will be able to do that in the upcoming years.

I heard so many great things about this book, I can’t wait to read it!

Day Three

Every day I will be posting and talking about life lessons and daily affirmations. I cannot wait to share my wisdom with others. Even though I am still in 20’s, I still feel like I can provide people with some of the life lessons I have learned. I hope this blog universe becomes even more of a safe place to talk about our feelings, and experiences. Although I would never force anyone to share something that they aren’t comfortable with.

Because life is extremely short and unpredictable, we should learn to fill every day with something that we love doing. Bonus points if you do this activities with someone you love. Perhaps you enjoy drawing, or singing, or reading, or something totally different. By ensuring you spend time doing you love every day, even if it is just 15 minutes, you increase your chances of improving yourself from that goal. And I believe in that saying that it takes 10,000 hours to master something. Not only does spending your day doing something you love, add happiness in your life, you can also improve your skills.

And who knows, maybe partaking in this habit, you may realize that maybe this is something you would want to do as a full time job, or for a charitable cause. Sometimes our hobbies can become just more than hobbies.

We never know what type of obstacles life is going to throw our way, tomorrow or next week, so it becomes even more relevant to do the things that makes us happy. Which is always important to start your day or end your day with something you love doing.

Today, I will find the time to do something that I will add happiness throughout my day. No matter how busy or tiring my day may be, I will do something every day that excites me, and adds joy.
