April is on its way out and were ready to bring in May. This year is definitely breezing by and, I can’t decide if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. While in some ways I do enjoy seeing the months pass, I also realize that the year is ending and I need to keep getting my life in order. May is the month to take care of your mental health and its Military Appreciation Month too. This year and last year has been an extreme rollercoaster of emotions that has in some way, affected all of us. We have fought through everything that has been thrown our way and we have to try to take care of ourselves. Mind, body and soul.
May is where I will be taking care of my mental well being. These past couple of months I have put it on the backburner. I am learning to find things that reignite my soul and mind. A few ideas are hiking, gardening and learning more about crystals, rocks and plants. I’m drawn to these things and when I learn about them it sends peace through my body. I am also being more diligent on what I eat and working out more with no excuses. Making it through April to May and actually keeping up to date on my Bullet Journal was an achievement. Around month 4, I always seem to give up and get into a rut, and stay in that rut. This time though, I was able to get out of the rut, with some help and stick to my goals.
How do feel so far through this year? Have you taken up any new hobbies or had any new ideas? Keep staying strong, being smart and being safe. If you have any new things you think I should try, leave them below in the comments. I would love to read them. 💚 Kat

One of my favorite places to take photos is on the plane. Everything is so surreal and calm. It also helps when you have a pretty majestic playlist to listen to. I hope you all enjoy these as much as I enjoyed taking them.
It’s amazing what you can see when you’re in the sky.

It’s already more than halfway through April, and were a third of the way through the year. Time has flown by for me it seems. I know this year is still trying to become better after 2020. I hope 2021 is going a little better for you than last year.
April I said I would do 2 push-ups every day as a challenge for the American Cancer Society. Since I have done 25 push-ups every day so far, my total amount is at 450 push-ups! That is insane to comprehend in a sense. I’m going to finish out strong and continue this challenge. It pushes myself, and it brings awareness for this cause.
Is there anything you decided to do for April? Check out my blog at the start of April below:
Where has time gone? It is already April and these months have sure flown by. For the month of April I have joined a challenge for the American Cancer Society. The challenge is, to do 25 push-ups, every day for the month and record your progress. The challenge is to spread awareness and bring everyone together. You can also check out their Facebook page to see everyone’s progress and future news. I am doing this for my Auntie who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and for everyone who has been affected by Cancer. 💓 Stay strong, stay safe.
Today was a day to relax and recoup after the last day of military drill. It wasn’t too bad of a drill, a lot of trainings and meetings, but nothing to bad. Afterwards I ran errands and started getting ready for the work week. Usually I’m working at my EMT job but that changes on drill days. It’s nice to have a little change of pace and enjoy my Sunday and get everything ready today instead. After drill and errands I did my plank, did a quick Yoga session, filled out my journal, ordered myself some food (which is a treat now) and sat down to watch WandaVision with Chris.
I hope everyone has a wonderful start of the week. Be safe, be happy and enjoy yourself!

“Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.”
I have to remind myself that it’s ok to have bad days. Not every day will be good. What I have to work on though is, not dwelling in the bad day and having it follow me into the next days. What I find helpful in not letting it spill into the next day is writing and music. I’ll write in my journal whatever im feeling and then let it roll off my back. I try not to bottle up my feelings. Its not healthy and it can be pretty stressful sometimes. Just my random thought of today.
It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.”
