October Intentions

Hello, my friends,

Happy October!!

I hope you’re doing well and enjoying the last bits of summer wherever you are. Here in California summer officially came to an end on September 22 and we welcomed Autumn. I was stoked to welcome the season for many different reasons. Of course, my number one reason is the chilly weather. Although we don’t often get rain in California I very much enjoy the gloomy cold misty days.

Anywho, I wanted to try something different this month and that is 3. Intentions for the month of October. These intentions could be a variety of things baking, cleaning, going someplace, etc… Then I’d like to revisit them at the end of the month and see if I completed them!

October Intentions:

  1. Bake pumpkin spice snickerdoodles
  2. Visit a Halloween Attraction
  3. Practice breaking a bad habit

Now I challenge you to write down at least one intention for the month of October and do it! I’d also like for you to reflect on it and ask yourself if you would have done it if you haven’t urged yourself to do it.

Have a happy day and I’ll keep you guys updated! 😊

Hey guys,

It’s definitely been a while since I last wrote on my blog. What can I say, I’m an awful writer. haha… Anyway, a little update to my current life.

I have been taking some time to myself to really figure out what I want with my life. For a long time while I was in college my whole mindset was study, work, and get it done. Now that I am finished with school I wanted to hit the pause button. I asked myself what I wanted to do and what am I going to do. For the past 5 to 6 years I have been working nonstop with school and jobs. I just felt burnt out.

I’m sure a lot of people will say “oh you had it easy,” or stuff like “you’re too young to complain about being tired.” Honestly, my whole life has been in a rush. Always on the go, always trying to find solutions to problems at home or in life. Always this or that. I could tell you hundreds of stories about why I feel the way I feel. In all seriousness, I’ve just been too serious about everything. I have not given myself the chance to stop and enjoy. Sometimes I wonder if I even know what enjoyment even means.

Let me tell you something. Mom’s you will cry when you drop off your child even if they do not cry. I remember dropping her off and staying with her for a while before it was time for me to let my little bird out of my nest for the day.

She was really excited and all I wanted to do was hold her so close to myself. I was holding back my tears as I was there with her. Then it was time. She went off to play with some kids and I walked back to my car. I sat there for about 20 minutes crying!!! I was wondering where my little baby has gone… She has grown up so fast and I could not believe she was already in school.

NOW!

Time really does fly when you are having fun. I cherish every day I have with her even when she is fighting with me. My baby will always be my baby!

Cheesy. Anyway, that’s all I have to say for today. Take care. Talk soon.

XOXO
