What are you thankful for?

So with everything that has been going on in my life the past day I thought I would sit down a make a list of all the things I am thankful for.

First and foremost I am beyond thankful for my son without him I don’t know where I would be in life so with that I love you Caden.

Second I am thankful for my job though only part-time I work with the most amazing people. 

And third I’m thankful to have a guardian angel watching over me, even in chaos I can still ground myself and have a sense of calm. (OR at least try.)

Though my list may be small, I do have something to be thankful for and in that I am grateful. 

So tell me what are some things you are thankful for?

Run girl!

When the only other option you have left is to run, then run and continue running until you can’t run anymore. I spent most of my night researching and crying I don’t know what’s going to come in the next few weeks, days, or months, but what I do know for sure is things have got to change but for now I’m just going to run to clear my head. 

Rainy day, coffee, and thoughts.

Good morning everyone and happy Friday. I am writing you on another very rainy day in Sacramento while sipping on my yummy warm coffee out of my very pink hello kitty coffee mug also while trying not to cough my head off (yes I am sick again and this time my body isn’t shaking it. 😯) I thought I would send you all my very warm wishes for a safe and joyful holiday.  I also wanted to share with you guys an amazing fitness app that I discovered lately it’s called pump up. ( I will insert a screen shot of it here.)

It is almost like the instagram of fitness apps but with more motivation and inspiration. It is free on the android app store and I believe also on the iPhone as well. I also have to say that I have an amazing feeling about 2015 I just recently finished my volunteer work at the agency I was at and have nothing but positive vibes and positive feelings about what’s to come. I keep repeating the quote “when one door closes, another one opens.” And I really believe that to be the case. I am very thankful for everything that agency has taught me not so much technical but within myself. 

Well I hope you all have an amazing, joyfull, and relaxing holiday. Remember the only thing that matters is family the rest is just details. Make amazing memories everyone.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Never let someone bring you down!

Good afternoon everyone, and happy Tuesday.  So for a start yesterday was less than ideal I started out learning how to crochet baby beanies when all of a sudden my dad started yelling at me. “You are just like your mother, you get these crazy ideas that you are going to be able to sell your crap when if you can do it so can anyone else.” His words really hurt I never expected my own father would do this to me. Crushing me the way he did, but what I have learned is not to give up that just because he’s not happy with his life doesn’t mean I have to be unhappy with mine.

Needless to say I didn’t give up either I cried through it but I didn’t give up.

So my words to you are never give up on what you really want to do just because one or even a few don’t believe in you. My favorite quote is “failure is better than regret, because if you fail it means that you at least tried.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, wonderful, tranquil, and happy Wednesday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Crafting!

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday. I hope you have all had an amazing weekend and just wanted to share what I have been up to this weekend. I just recently taught myself how to crochet those cute little cup cozies after burning my hand on my cup of coffee at work last week and now let’s just say I am addicted to making them. (Below I will post a few pictures of the ones I have made so far.) What I didn’t realize though was how calming and relaxing it is to crochet and how rewarding it is once I finish one. I have been under a huge amount of stress with the holidays coming up but this has eased the stress a bit.

Well I hope you all have an amazing rest of the weekend and a peaceful week to come.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Success?!?!

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday.  I know today can be hectic for many with getting ready for the coming week after a long holiday week and the pending holidays coming up, but as I was sitting down to dinner last night with my boyfriend I couldn’t help but think about something that we were talking about and that’s success. I thought about how we define success. To you what is success? Is it obtaining plenty of money? Is it power you seek? Or is it simply just watching your dreams unfold before you, bringing to life the thing you have always wanted to do? Then I sat back and thought about well what is holding back many people from obtaining their success? Is it fear of succeeding? Or a fear of failure? I really sat there and thought deep down about what was stopping me and I came to the conclusion that my fear is actually succeeding that out weights my fear of failure. I’m so afraid of how my life would change if something went right instead of wrong.
Now the only thing I can do is push past that fear and proceed further and further until that fear is eliminated. 

So my mission for everyone is to figure out what you are really afraid of whether you have already got your dream of success up and running what’s stopping you from moving it further. Then move forward don’t let your fears of success ruin what WILL be an amazing life for you.

Well I hope this helps others struggling with the same things I do, and I hope you all have a nice, relaxing, and peaceful Sunday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Happy birthday to me?

Good morning everyone and happy Saturday. So today is my birthday but I am just in a down mood I don’t know why and I wish it would go away. We are supposed to be happy on our birthdays, honoring those who gave us life and honoring that we have made it as far as we have but I just don’t feel happy. I constantly feel like I am failing at this life and how can I honor those that gave me this life when I haven’t even made the most of it thus far?

Sorry for the depressed ramblings, I just thought if I got it out I could move on from it and put it in the past.

I hope you all have an amazing, relaxing, and peaceful Saturday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Happy Thanksgiving! 🍗🍜🍗

Good afternoon everyone, and happy thanksgiving.  I hope you are all having a peaceful thanksgiving home with your families making amazing memories that you can look back on the following year. I also wanted to stop by and reflect on this past year. I feel that today is a great day to look back on the years events and be thankful for those events that have brought us all to where we are today. Have you ever stopped to think back on a certain event in your life and wondered how your life would have turned out had that one event happened differently? Every event, every experience, good or bad has brought you to the exact moment you are at right now. Every event is a life lessons and every life lessons brings you to exactly where you need to be.

Well I hope you all have a very peaceful day. Fill your day with memories with loved ones and fill your bellies with a bountiful feast.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Good morning!

Good morning from a rainy city everyone, so I have been feeling really down about my fitness I feel like I have hit a plateau and not budging, I have been changing my diet even more and adding more fitness to my regime. However I do know I have been making some kind of progress as the new boots that I bought fit a lot better than they did when I originally bought them which made me super excited that I can now wear those for my birthday dinner date night with my boyfriend on the 29th. speaking of which this is a major mile stone for me as I have never been on an actual date so I am super excited and actually looking forward to my birthday this year. 

Well I hope you all have an amazing, pleasant, peaceful, and dry Wednesday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Set back! 😩 :oops: :| 😓

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday.  So I just wanted to say I have been fighting my own demons on the fitness front. I have had a major set back and have just had so much on my plate that I never seem to be able to get to the gym. I have been wanting and craving the gym here lately but the end of the day comes sooner then I want, and now my allergies are bugging me like crazy. I have been so happy with my life here lately but the only thing I am not happy with is my horrible fitness and health decisions. 

Hopefully I can get to the gym today but if not I hope I can at least workout at home.

I hope you all have an amazing, relaxing, and healthy Sunday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.
