I’m off!

March 5, 2017 in Uncategorized

Happy Sunday my loves! I hope you have been enjoying your weekend so far. My bodies been trying to fight off this nasty cold, so rest + water + smoothies + doggy cuddles was my weekend. 🙂 Oh, and some yoga because my life would be incomplete without it. 

S/O to Target for $8 shorts too. 

The gym hasn’t been my priority. I’ve quite honestly felt like crap all week long between a slight fever, bad cough, sore throat, and congestion. So the gym just wasn’t a good thing for my body this week. And I only went a few times the week before because of a bunch of exams. And this coming week I’ll be on a service trip in West Virginia, so it again won’t be a priority. But the thing is, I’m totally okay with that. Life happens, bodies need rest; and I wouldn’t give up this service trip for hours spent in the gym anyways. 

As I’m writing this in a van at 8:13 am with a runny nose and a crampy stomach (just got my period!!) I sit with a feeling of excitement in my chest as I embark on this journey. I applied for this trip way back in September and am extremely blessed I was chosen to go. This week I will be in West Virginia with a group of girls from my college serving the community. We will be helping with rural poverty and environmental issues. 

My heart is happy. Volunteering is something that makes me feel alive, and I cannot wait to immerse myself into the culture and connect with those who I will be surrounded with. 

I will most definitely be talking about this trip when I’m back, but for now; it’s time to head out! 

Keep letting your soul burn bright friends. 🙂

    It’s no fun to start a trip feeling lousy! But I hope you have an amazing time on your service trip and meet some awesome people. 🙂

    I hope that whatever bug you’ve caught gets chased away by all the giving, self-lessness and volunteering you are going to be doing on your trip!! Service is such a humbling act. Some of my best memories are from service adventures. Have a great time girlie!
