Hi, loves how has the new year been treating you all? Hopefully well...three months in already spring is around the corner. So much has occurred in the last 3 months for me. I left one of the jobs I was at and began a new one while still working my other part time job that I’ve been at for a while. The job I am no longer at was so toxic and mentally draining, I have never wanted to leave a job so bad. It’s crazy how life works. If you know, you know I always preach that everything happens for a reason. God always works in your favor never question him because even if at the moment you’re uncertain about things he will turn around and show you why it didn’t work out how you had imagined, but instead why it worked out the way it did.
An example for that in my life would be how I left my toxic job and began a new one. Now I can honestly say I love my job so much; the staff and the kiddos make it so easy. There’s never a dull moment when you work with first graders. It’s amazing to see the differences you help make each and every day in their life, while working with little ones. Have you guys done anything to step out of your comfort zone so far this year?! Let’s see if I have… no not yet :( I have a few ideas that I would like to do sometime down the road, if it happens, I will share about it.
Keeping busy: what are some things you do on a day-to-day basis that keeps you going? As you all know I am very into the gym. I’m almost 2 years into my fitness journey…how quickly time flies :) the gym keeps me very busy; I try to go 3-4 times a week. Is the gym something you would like to get started on?! I’m very thankful to everyone who has been a part of my journey along the road teaching me techniques and of course how I can better improve. It's not easy, especially when you constantly compare yourself to other people you see on social media. are you guilty of doing that? I know I am! I can't help but think about the flaws I see in myself. Wishing I had the "perfect" body I see in others. But instead, I am working to achieve that in myself. I'm not perfect but I might be perfect in someone else's eyes. Working to achieve to be the best possible version of myself for myself and no one else<3.
Now that I have talked about the gym another thing that I want to talk about in which I would like to make a priority again is journaling. I have always said how beautiful it is to write and look back at later, it's been a while since I have last done that. I've been so busy I even stopped writing good things that have occurred in my life every day. I am going to start that once again... and try to catch up since we are already 3 months in and that is something I mentioned doing at the start of the year. I have also began going to church again with my friend and I love it. If you personally know me, you know that church is something I was so passionate about. I am just now starting to find my rhythm back into it. I wanted to share something from a church service I recently attended on responsibility. It was said in service "You're not responsible for others actions, but you are responsible for your reaction". I thought in that moment that was important to hear because sometimes as humans we tend to quickly react to things in a non-positive way, we don't think before we speak, and we just add more fuel to the fire instead. I want to learn how to work on better understanding situations and circumstances. :)
What are somethings you wish to begin? it's never too late to start! I would love to know more about the things you are doing to keep yourself busy<3. Until next time.
