Hi guys and happy Thursday! Going to be sharing some rambles today about life recently. Thank you Amanda for letting me share what’s on my mind today and the link up!
Work has been going well! I’m working 3-4 days a week at GNC and am adjusting well. Definitely a lot to know, but with time it will all get easier! I also babysit on the side so I have been doing that too. Trying to make some money and build up my bank account this summer.
My friends back home are great. I have 4 really close friends and I am so blessed to have them. This past Monday, I had a fire at my house with some friends and some people my friend Ceara knows. It was fun to get out of my “routine” and just let loose. I think that is SO good for my well-being and for anyone’s well-being. Having fun, being spontaneous, and breaking those rules that we tend to hold so tightly upon ourselves.
My best friend Maria and I 🙂
Dabbin’ with my bestie Hannah hehe
Working out has been fun! It has been consisting of days with more cardio and less weights, days with more weights and less cardio, yoga, circuit workouts, walking my dog, etc. I am so glad I don’t feel the need to just do cardio anymore, because I really don’t find that enjoyable. I have found a love for lifting weights, even though I don’t lift that heavy, and I love how strong it makes me feel. For cardio, I like the stair master, arc trainer, and bike. I like to run too, but by no means am I some great distance runner. But it is a good way for me to clear my head and I never push myself to go further when I am exhausted like I once did in the past. Yoga is great and I like to try and go once a week. It really helps with my mental health and just makes me feel SO good.
My family has been well. My mom returned Friday from a road trip to visit her family with her mom. She was gone for over a week and it was great to see her. My dad started therapy Wednesday and said he really liked it, so hopefully that will help him. My brother just started a new job which is awesome too!
My mental health has been a lot better lately. I went through a funk towards the end of May, and I attribute a lot of that to adjusting to home/putting myself in a bit of a bubble when it came to social situations. Finding a balance with social settings, parties, etc. is something I am constantly striving for, and my therapist has been a huge help with that.
Love love love these quotes.
I have found a routine at home with my job, friends, family time, and me time which has reduced my anxiety a lot too. Prayer and reading have been taking up my time too and have been making me feel a bit more whole which is also great for me. I started the book Breaking Vegan yesterday, and I already adore it. I love reading other women’s stories. Jordan is one strong lady!
Concert with my mama
This past Tuesday, my mom and I saw Of Monsters and Men and Florence and the Machine in concert together. It was absolutely AMAZING. Seeing two of my fave bands in one concert just put the biggest smile on my face. They were both so good live, and my mom and I had a blast!
Love this lady to PIECES <3
I was talking to my therapist about this the other day. I really would love to take off and travel to Colorado. Go hiking, explore, be with nature… but I don’t think I can afford that and it isn’t too realistic right now. However, she suggested a yoga retreat and I have been looking into a weekend one. What do y’all think?! I really would LOVE to go on one this summer, so I think I’m going to start seriously looking into it/save up!
That’s it for this Thursday!
Now tell me:
Where do you work?
Have you been to any concerts this summer/are you planning on going to any?
Have a great day guys!
Sending my love as always.
