“Whatever you do, no matter how hard it gets, no matter how weak you may feel, never stop growing.”

“Plant your own garden & decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.” LOVE THIS <3

Steam rooms!!

Anyone else love saunas or steam rooms?! I always feel so much more relaxed and refreshed after.

Selfie in the steam room hehe, also Instagrammed this with a little piece I wrote: 

//I strive to find an inner peace with myself. A place of contentment where I don’t let what others say or do affect me. A state of happiness where I don’t let the mistakes I make define me; where I instead choose to look at them as an opportunity for growth, where I am not so hard on myself for these mistakes as I am only human. I strive to be at peace with myself, to be at peace with others. To not let jealousy engulf me, to be truly happy for the successes of others. I strive to accomplish my goals, to never stop working hard and letting a setback bring me down. This inner peace; this peace with myself, my body, my mind, and others is something I will continually strive for. The goals I have, the person I aspire to be; it all excites me. I am strong and I don’t need the approval of anyone else; I don’t need to rely on anyone else for I am a strong woman and I continue to see my strength daily, and I will continue to watch it grow.//

This adorable decoration my mom got me for my room.

Follow your bliss… my mom is my biggest fan with everything: my Blissful Lyss blog, school, and everything in between. So thankful to have someone as amazing and supportive like her in my life!! My best friend <3  It has been so amazing to be home and get to spend some quality time with both my mom and dad- love them to pieces and am so SO grateful!

Now tell me: 

Your favorite song as of late? (I’m always on the hunt for new music)

Waffle or pancake person? (I’m more of a waffle gal!)

Hope you all have a great Friday!

Sending my love as always.

Xoxo

      They never have it at my local whole foods; I actually found it at a little organic store! Waffles are the best, especially homemade ones. Your waffles on your post today looked amazing!!

    I’ve never been in a steam room! My gym doesn’t have one, but I have gotten a steam facial over a pot of boiling water before X-) My favorite song as of late is “Me, Myself and I”. Not sure who sings that song, but my sister and I love it. Have a great weekend!

    Love the quotes you featured in this post! Lately I’ve been loving the song “Snapback” by Old Dominion. I’m not a big country music fan, but this song is pretty catchy 🙂

    Blessings,
