A lot of what I’m coming into is embracing my life and change – while maintaining special spots in the house for myself that just make me plain happy. Today I set up a small office area in preparation for back to school (2 weeks!) where I can store my stuff and printer, have my laptop set out and plenty of space for the mass quantity of textbooks I just purchased (ouch).
It’s in our living room / slowly becoming library. Which is right by the kitchen and in open space. Why this is so important for me – I need dedicated space to work, but I hate feeling isolated while working, I need interaction even in the essence of just presence around. I am so happy. I plan to get some cute little desk decoration ideas and amp up my space a little. I’m all over Pinterest, who isn’t?
I’ll update on the desk space.
Also, I’m starting to prep to make a yoga room/meditation spot for myself. This is what I’m most looking forward too. Again, Pinterest is huge. But I’m really putting positive energy into this process and feeling great about it.
I strongly believe the better and more positive vibes/energy/karma you put out, the better you feel overall. It’s simple, be kind and you feel kinder.
If anyone has links or ideas on desk decor and/or meditation spots please let me know!
I am currently sipping a brewed Keurig coffee with a little bit of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. It’s a little strong but just what I need.
Today marks the day I start a self-love journey. I am so tired of comparing myself to others and just not feeling healthy in general – so it’s time to make a change – and I’m excited. I’m working with a wellness coach and today we met for the first time and she is lovely. You know when you just get a good vibe? Yup I am feeling hopeful.
Sure I’d love to lose weight (that medication often makes hard to lose) – but she said something that made me think a lot and come to the conclusion; that why do we as a society focus on weight loss and not overall health and happiness?
I am always looking for the next goal, “ok once I do this I’ll feel good”. But why not make lifestyle changes and plan for longer term happiness and work on myself from within?
I have been gone and hiding behind a textbook for the last little while. I am in my last 2 weeks of my first semester of practical nursing – I am obsessed with my future profession. But holy cow is it work.
I miss writing and my outlet though and wanted to take a me moment to really embrace some of my passions that centre me.
How are you doing in loving yourself today?
I have been back into meditation and I am actually eating better. The working out thing still needs improvement but there are very few who have perfected this trifecta. I will be back soon though with some reviews and routines and collections.
So clearly I have been a little overwhelmed with life. But who of us hasn’t ever reached that point?
Today I have an evening shift – woo! Yes that means I got to sleep in, get my nails done and hang with my dog. Who could ask for more?
Nails I usually keep nude, but went with a grey/purple and am obsessed. Even though they show on camera as a darker purple.
I’m going to be posting some reviews soon, but will being doing a full face of makeup for work. Sometimes it’s just the kick a girl needs. I purchased a $6 CAD mascara and love it (Revlon). And am still swapping through foundations. Lighter coverage days I use my BB cream from Marcelle, mixed with my Kat Von D lock it foundation. And full coverage days I’m still obsessed with my double-wear foundation from Estée Lauder.
I’m thinking out loud here, but I have a couple “hacks” or my makeup tricks for longer lasting makeup – would you guys be interested in that? Let me know!
Also I am so passionate about mental health and know I previously touched on it in my last post – feelings? We can talk about it here.
Ok guys enough rambling for me, let me know if you’re interested in the above ideas by liking or commenting (I love talking).
