Haven’t done one of these posts in a hot sec. But I love reading them so I figured why not!
-It’s currently 8:10 A.M. and I’m sitting here writing this with a huge wrap on my foot. If you follow my Instagram (@blissful_lyss29) you know that I sprained the side of my foot yesterday. But it’s all good- because I know it’ll be fine soon. But regardless dealing with pain is not fun! Trying to trust the universe on this one and just take a friggin seat and chilllll.
-I move back to school Sunday morning!! This week has been a bit up and down with anxiety. Change is never easy for me, but it is so necessary. I love challenge because it helps me GROW. So I’m trying to embrace the challenges and changes coming my way instead of hiding from them. I am excited for this semester and to be with my best friends again. I’m definitely looking forward to a change of pace as well.
-I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting too- on this summer and just how much I’ve grown as a human. I really attribute a lot of that growth to my yoga teacher training and becoming a more spiritual person. Maybe I’ll do a post on that? My spiritual awakening? But maybe not. I know posting about that kind of stuff can be a bit tricky so I try to stay away from my views on religion and all.
-What’s happening in the world right now is weighing on my heart. I just have a hard time sitting with it all- but I know that I need to be the change I want to see in the world. So I’m rolling with that.
-I’ve been thinking a lot about future plans post college. I know I want to take a year off before grad school, and I’ve been looking into Peace Corps/ AmeriCorps/ other service programs. There are some service programs that I feel called to do and that excite my heart. Service is very important to me, and thinking about that year off as being a time to help others has made me super excited. But we will see what the future holds!
-I started the book “Gravity” by R.M Drake this week. He is incredible. Highly highly recommend. I’ve been doing a lot of reading so I’ll probably have a post out about some book recommendations for you all!
-And last thing: I wanted to share some of my favorite quotes lately. Quotes are so powerful and I think they can spark so much thought and sometimes inner peace.
How do you cope with change?
Favorite book lately?
Have a lovely day!
