Sunday

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!

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.”

Happy Saturday!

I hope everyone has had a great first week of February. My week started off how it usually does, work early in the morning. After work I normally would just relax and do a little bit here and there, but I have been changing that habit. After work I try to get a one mile walk in with Rex, which will benefit both me and him. Then after dinner and little odds and ends I can finally settle down into the new routine I’ve started for myself. I set my uniform and lunch up for the next day, get comfy in bed, turn on my calming music playlist talk with Chris and then start my journaling. After I journaled my thoughts of the day and my habit tracker I either play on my Switch or read my current book which is: American Gods. I’ve been doing this for a few weeks and so far I like the change. I hope that I can keep it up.

What my Saturday looked like today:

Started off with an early grocery shopping trip. The earlier the better. After that, I cleaned up the house, had my breakfast which was just a bowl of oatmeal. Took Rex for his walk and we were lucky to have enjoyed the nice weather. Made a nice cup of coffee and then sat down to take care of some work. Planned out homework that is due for next week, wrote a quick “quote of the day,” finished up some paperwork then sat back and started working more on my blog. Also couldn’t forget, that I had to fill up my vitamins for the next week. While working on my blog Chris thought it would be a good time to catch up on a few movies that I’ve been missing out on. We decided on Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain Marvel, then decided on a snack and more coffee. After watching the movies and writing my blog I will be doing a self care Saturday night with a nice face mask.

I hope everyone had a lovely week and a relaxing Saturday. Let’s try and do great things in the upcoming week. Here is to positivity, fun, relaxing and amazing thoughts. 💚 Kat

August Goals

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?
