A perfect hygge Sunday morning


It’s the little things….

A perfect cup of coffee

Your favorite candle burning

The smell of bacon cooking

Rain hitting the windows

And your kids sleeping safe in their beds….

Two Steps Back


In our mind we think that when things go wrong, we have no luck or we are just doomed. This isn’t the case. In order for things to come together they must fall apart. And, in the current situtaion or circumstance that you are going through, that just might very well be a good thing.

If you are in a relationship that you think is irreconciable but you still love that person the best thing to do to make it better is to sometimes walk away for a while.

There are so many unknowns in life. Everyday, every second, every moment of your life is an unknown. My philosophy is to just roll with it. Don’t stress. Don’t fret. Don’t worry. It is a waste of precious time. There is only so much you can do to change the inevitiable. That is why the word inevitable is so important. You truly do not have control over what is destin to come. So….just let it happen. Learn from your mistakes that created that inevitable and critique for the future.

I’ve change the tempo of my blog so many times but I guess I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s just a compilation of my life. The good, the bad, and the inevitable lol.

My header pic is of my new apartment. It’s a shot of my sun/bedroom and my cat Moo Moo. I love my simple life and over the course of oh I’d say the past ten years is when I really started to think about what it’s all about.

Stop. Think about what’s important and enjoy it.

Until next post…. have a great day and be kind. blessings

Coffee, thinking, and thought for the day


Do what makes YOU happy…….

This might seem like a simple statement that people tend to think is so easy to accomplish but it goes a lot deeper, for me anyway.

Day 3 and I am still in my positive mode. I love it. I look at everything and everyone differently. It doesn’t mean that once in a while I might get off track but at least I am aware of it.

I’m staying focused on what my goals are.

I am taking people for what they are worth and throwing compassion into the mix as well.

I’m not running from finding my solutions to my problems.

I am just taking it day by day and I am not going to feel guilty about being simple or happy.

I finished up my last semester in December and just found out I made the Dean’s list again. I think my GPA is 3.28. Pretty sure that’s it. I have one class to finish up my associates and I am done!!!! I’ll be taking that probably in the next few months or whenever I can find a quick mini session to do it in.

Anyway, the key here is to stay focused and organized. You truly have to break things down to a simpler form and tackle whatever it is step by step and finish what you set out on accomplishing.

For me I just want to accomplish finding true peace and happiness which I think come hand in hand. I think people think you need material resources to find that peace and happiness but that is so not true. Getting rid of the material things around me and eliminating the stuff as well as people who are preventing me to do that is what is making me happy.

The first question you have to ask is; what makes you happy? I had to ask myself this question over and over again until I figured it out. For me it’s simple, the first answer is spending time with my family and doing for them. I can go on and on into the details and everything else that follows but I’m just trying to get my message across for those of you who might need direction.

Don’t feel guilty or bad about what makes you happy. I felt like my whole life I tried to conform to what everyone else thought the definition of happy should be and finally in my 40’sm, I figured it out what it is that I needed to be happy. Better late than never right? lol

This post might seem all over the board but once I figure out the pattern on how I want to get my messages across everything will fall into place a little bit better.

Enjoy the day everyone. I have to get mine started!!

 

 

Dishes


I stepped out of the box and splurged on a new set of dishes from the Dollar Tree. The brand though is Royal Norfolk which I’m really surprised because I think that is a pretty good quality dish? Eh maybe I’m wrong and I want to believe I got a steal but whatever anyway. I love them and they are different then anything I would buy. Out with the old in with the new.

I seriously have no business being on here. I’m behind on my schoolwork and I skipped interning today. Arrghh my bad. It was just one of those days.

I went for my regular checkup and the good news was I am off my BP medicine for the time being well until he checks it next week to make sure my BP stays down and I lost 15 lbs since September. Wooo hooo! The bad news is I have two cyst on my wrist which is causing my arm to go numb and the other bad news is I don’t have health insurance to have them removed. Oh well. I don’t think I’m alone on that one.

Anyway that’s it for now. I have to get going on my chores blah.
