Today my tea said,
“May this day bring you peace, tranquility and harmony.”
– Yogi Tea
For a Monday it started off just like how you would think a Monday would start. Things were a mess, batteries weren’t charged and it was storming! Now I did enjoy the rain, I just didn’t like my work jacket soaking it up. That was my fault though because I forgot my rain jacket. Overall though it turned out to be a pretty decent day and I kept reminding myself that my day would bring me peace and harmony.
Something I want to try to be mindful of
I want to try to not eat past ten o’clock. I think it will help curb my random snacking and I feel that it will help me be more aware of what I eat. The only exception that I’ll have is water of course and caffeine free tea. One of the tea’s that I really enjoy is a brand called Yogi Tea. The flavors are delicious and the tiny affirmations that come with them are super cute.
“When the mind is backed by will, miracles happen.”

Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021?
This year has been a whirlwind of emotions for myself and I’m pretty sure the same for a lot of people. This year was filled uncertainty, fear, loss but also with love and determination to get through it. It was tough and filled with many ups and downs. From the happy times of graduating Navy Corpsman school, getting a new EMT job, being able to visit Chris a few times, being overly excited about becoming an Auntie to my friends having babies, finally finishing up my Associates in Fire Technology all while still being able to celebrate holidays with family and keeping our health including Rex. Some of the heartbreaking times of this year for me was losing my beloved Monkee after 15 years, seeing the world become sick and dying. It has been a year of stress, no doubt. I have grown and and I will continue to grow in 2021. Another year to love and learn.
Some goals for next year:
- Keep positive even in trying times.
- Continue to learn
- Be accepted into Nursing school
- Keep getting healthier
- Work more and be more dedicated to my blog
- Get back into streaming video games
- Still continue to keep myself and my family’s health a priority
- Go hiking and adventuring more
Today on New Years Eve, I will be sitting back doing a movie marathon with Chris and the family all while ringing in the new year quietly and safely with dinner and champagne. What are some of your goals or resolutions for the New Year? Happy New Year’s everyone! May you stay safe and positive. See you in 2021!
“I hope you realize that every day is a fresh start for you. That every sunrise is a new chapter in your life waiting to be written.”

I recently was browsing through some wonderfully written blogs, and found one that started talking about goals for the month. I love having goals. The thought of having a goal helps me strive for it even that much more. I know it’s not the beginning of August, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start. Last month I managed to complete a goal that took me a few months to complete. You can read more about it here. So, my goals for August are:
- Stay more active with my blogging.
- Keep working out.
- Complete a new “28 Day Challenge.”
- Try to meal prep.
- Stay organized and use my bullet journal more.
- Keep being happy.
These are things that I’m trying to be more conscious about. Sometimes writing them down makes them feel more real in a sense. Out of these goals that I decided on, I think the last one is the most important to me. Trying to keep my soul happy. During this pandemic it may seem a little harder to do, but I’ve been trying to find different things to do. Some things that I like to do are yoga, working out, hang out with my family, write, and play some video games. I find that these activities help me find happiness in the days. What are some of our goals for August? What are some things that make you happy?
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”

Happy Blogging Anniversary!
I was informed today by the lovely WordPress that it is my One Year Anniversary on creating my blog. I can’t believe it honestly. I would have never started and shared this journey if it wasn’t for my amazing boyfriend Chris and his support with me. I just want to say a big thank you for everyone who follows me and stops by to share in this adventure. I can’t wait to keep writing and hopefully inspiring those who read my adventures in life. Stay safe, stay fun, stay curious. 💚
