Just Checking In

Hi everyone!

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. ❤

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 Ten

I will understand the importance of making a to-do list for the day, or for tomorrow. I will make sure that I keep it to a list of a maximum of four things. That way it is an easier to accomplish your list. And when you schedule yourself to do too much, you often feel overwhelmed, and thus, setting yourself up for failure, or for procrastination. Normally, whenever you see a long, daunting list of errands, and chores, you don’t really feel motivated to get things done, but when you see only three items, you feel more motivated to actually want to accomplish those chores.

For instance, on my to-do list for tomorrow, I have this planned for my day…

  1. Go grocery shopping
  2. Clean the bathroom
  3. Cook dinner

These tasks shouldn’t take up too much of my time, probably no more than two hours. And the bonus part is that I’ll be able to get my walk in to the store. Getting my exercise in is important. I’m starting to exercise more which has been fun.

Today, I will learn to make to-do lists with no more than three items. This will ensure that I prioritize my most important tasks. By only having three things each day, I am able to focus on things that actually matter, and that they will get done.

Fortune Cookies

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend.

My boyfriend and I ordered Chinese food and my fortune cookies read;

“Now is a good time to finish up old tasks.”

“Rome was not built in a day. Be patient.”

I thought these were good fortune cookies since it is the last day of May and the beginning of June is on its way! I do have a lot of things I would like to finish up so it was really inspiring fortune cookies.

I’m going to make a to-do list and assign a day for each task to ensure that everything gets done.

Being Productive

Today my boyfriend and I finished our Christmas wrapping. What a great feeling.

We worked together and shared our supplies.

And when things got too stressful we cuddled until we were calm enough to continue wrapping.

Today, I will check something off of my to-do list.

Being Productive

Today I woke up early, got my morning walk in and did many chores today. Even though I didn’t finish all that I had planned to do but the fact that I did, I still feel like I accomplished something which makes me proud.

It also motivates me to continue accomplishing things tomorrow as well.

Today, I will make a list of things I would like to achieve and check the twice!
