Today has been a down day. Not very surprising considering having a really nice day yesterday. I’ve said this before recently, but I am absolutely loving wearing sweaters again. Especially these ones. 👏🏻 I spent the morning re watching The Vampire Diaries and spent the most of the afternoon watching Death In Paradise and looking to start my first Christmas shopping online. Someone please tell me, what I’m suppose to buy a six year old who is into absolutely everything?! No? Me neither. 😂🙈 Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. If not, stay strong. We will all get through it together. 😘💕
Read this quote this week and it's been replaying in my head since then. Ironically enough, my counselor also brought it up and handed me a piece of paper with a slightly different version of it. And yes, you read that right, my counselor, because there's NO shame in speaking with others who are unbiased and trained to help you through situations in life
Her version said, "Who and what you allow in your life are your standard. Don't allow the storms in your life to affect that. Set your standard, keep it there and let those that don't meet it fall away."
Think about it for a minute.....What is your standard? Is it where it should be? Are you allowing others to treat you the way you should be treated? Are you giving someone a space on your life, in your heart that isn't being given back in return? Are you going through something that's made you lose self worth and make you feel as if you deserve less?
I hear this often, from other men and women, that feel because of the mistakes they made in their lives they "deserve what's happening to them" or just plain ol' accept mistreatment as acceptable because they don't realize that, regardless of the past, the deserve more
We ALL struggle with this. And it applies to every aspect of life. How you allow others to treat you, how you treat yourself, work, relationships, friendships, all of it
Like I've always said, I share these quotes because they help me, NOT because I've mastered this. I'm a BIG time work in progress and so are you all. Now we just have to work on PROGRESS, even if it's slow, just focus on making baby steps towards a better you ❤️
I wish I wasn't working on this gorgeous day but alas, sometimes there's just not enough time in the week (or I'm not using my time well 😜). I've been procrastinating on a few things, and this week was especially hard to stay focused and keep pushing as I experienced a death in my family and kept seeing and hearing about tragedies from friends and the news. As I get older, I feel more from the pain around me and have learned that sometimes it's a sign to pause, pray, rest and refuel to heal and support those in need 🙏🏻On a side note, this Whole 30 Thai Coconut soup is quite refreshing ☺️ @whole30recipes @whole30 #saturday
Was ist, wenn Dein Leben morgen endet?
Stirbst Du erfüllt oder in Wehmut?
Hast Du Dir alles genommen,
wofür es sich lohnt zu leben?
Hast Du etwas für Dich verlangt,
Deinen Platz im Leben eingefordert?
Oder legst Du Dein Glück in die Hände irgendeiner fremden Macht oder gar des Schicksals? 🍀✨
Hör auf zu träumen, mach ne Bestandsaufnahme und dann los!
Keiner sagt, dass es einfach wird aber es ist die Mühe wert!
Streng Dich an, gib Alles! "TRY HARDER" 👑
Feel so great!! I never stopped or paused --not once --- that's a huge victory for me!
I intended to run out to 6 miles,
and by the 5th mile I was like, yeah you can go to 7 😊👌 and at 7, I was like, "I feel fantastic!" I'm going to make it to 8.
I really felt I could have gone to 9, but I knew I had to go get something to eat.
I mean, it IS almost noon, haha!
Haven't ate anything.
I'm not a big eater before I run.
I hate having to wait for something to digest, or hearing/feeling something slushing around).
Half marathon in 3 weeks Nebraska!
My horoscope today said "you are on some kind of a journey now, and you may see your arrival at the destination as the most important thing. In reality, there were many points prior, and there will be many after that will be equally, if not more important." -
So here's a little snippet of my journey. Experimenting and stepping out of my comfort zone. Training. Thank you @kenzoalvares for such an a amazing class & @kmdanceacademy for the environment and vibes🖤♊️ #theprocess#keepgoing#kmdanceacademy#dancer#msa#onajourney
What is life about when you are not going for your dreams? Stop doing what others expect you to do and give a fuck about opinions, in the end it is your life, you decide your destiny! #thoughtsbecomethings#throwback
It's been a rough week fam. My patients are getting younger and younger. 30s, 40s, 50s with severe strokes. And for some reason this week all my elderly patients have been awake while intubated and it's hard to see them in that state. Just staring at you. Not able to communicate. They're also my parents age. That hurts.
But of course we do the best we can and look for silver linings and climb those mountains. I'm working the weekend and am on day 6 of 12 in a row. Blah. Happy weekend friends! Please take care of your health!
This morning was filled with joy and tears. I'm purging of the unnecessary and I've found a lot of cards and letters that reveal how others view me. Yet I love me in spite of and regardless to the expectations of others. Once I got off the floor, it was time for Farina with chocolate powder, pecans and a side of coffee . 🤗🤗🤗 How it's time to get back to work. See you on the other side.
