Hello July..

Half the year has officially gone. I'm thinking about my first post of the year and so far nothing has really happened quite the way I planned. Is it really a surprise though?! Things rarely ever happen exactly how we plan them but yet things always happen just they way they are suppose to.

I'm pretty happy this far. I've had quite a few challenges, which forced me to make some changes in my life. I wanted growth and I guess I got just that. The whole thing was definitely not easy to process and I still have a lot to figure but I'm a good space.

Two things I am not super proud of are my lack of consistency with the blog and my poor commitment to my workouts. I'm definitely making the time to improve that for the rest of this year.

I'm also making more time for myself doing more of the things that make me happy, but also meditating and connecting with myself and working on my faith.

My main Goals for the month of July

- Work on Improving my relationship with God
- Be more active (Exercise) and drink more water
- Get out there more and meet more people
- Do more of what makes me happy 

How has the year been so far for you? Have you made any plans for the rest of the year?

In The Moment..

Happy Easter Everyone!
I hope you've all been well and had a great Easter day.

I have been a totally absent from the blog lately. I've had quite a few things going on and started feeling a bit overwhelmed; when that happens it not always easy for me to get my thoughts together. I allowed myself a small break from the blog in order to sort things out a little but even after that, I still don't feel like I was able to archive much. ..That's just life. It is going to be tough at times, maybe confusing or even overwhelming, but that it is just part of the journey. With all of that, trying to balance s probably the best thing I can currently do. I definitely do not want to neglect the things that bring me joy, like blogging.

12 Thought Provoking Questions

Having the right answers to the wrong questions is not worth much but asking the right questions is already part of the answer.
I've been doing a lot of reflection recently (as always, really). I have some pretty important decisions to make and I'm trying to make sure I consider all angles and ask myself all the right questions.

In the same spirit I thought I would share a few thought provoking questions with you.

What I Would Have Worn..

The closest I came to having a prom was watching it in movies. We don't do proms where I'm from, so I've never had one. I always enjoyed seeing others dress up for the occasion though. All the suits and bows and the amazing beautiful dresses.. it definitely sounds like a very fun experience.  

In my high school, we had an end of the year celebration with dance performances, theater and a lot of other very enjoyable activities. I have had the most amazing memories from these times with family and friends but I can't help but wonder what it would have been like to experience the excitement of going to prom, choosing between dresses, and maybe even being accompanied by a hot date. I don't particularly feel like I really missed out on anything tough.

If I had gone to a prom I would have opted for something a little like this:

5 Ways You're Wasting Your Time

"Know the difference between being patient and wasting your time"
I came across this posted on Instagram and it spoke to me a lot. I realize I have been wasting my time more than I have been patient with a lot of things. Slightly upsetting but I'm glad I at least came to this realization so that I can be more conscious of this in the future.
This quote got me to think about a lot of the different ways one could be wasting their time and pretty much inspired this post.

What Love Is

What is Love to you?
Peace, Happiness, God.. I'm not too sure how to describe it myself.
Reading children's answers to this same question does not only make me smile but reinforces the feeling that regardless of whether or not we know how to explain Love, we should always make sure we show it.
Although I don't really like commercialized side of Valentine's I enjoy seeing all the different creative ways people express their love and appreciation to the ones they care about. Regardless of whether you are in a romantic relationship or not, I think we should all celebrate Love any occasion we get.
I discovered this a while ago and thought what better time to share it than now.
