I want to start this months blog with getting down to sharing my goals. For this short and sweet month I’m giving myself some short and sweet things to do that I know I can achieve! Hopefully by the end of the month they will all get crossed out!
Taking care of oneself isn’t always the easiest thing. I am almost 30 years old and I’m continuing to find ways to not let my depression get the best of who I am. I still hit those bumps in the road from time to time and get so caught up with life and what is happening around me that I forget. I forget to check on myself to see how I am doing and if I am okay. And if I haven’t been doing well then I need to take myself away and get myself back into the right place, mentally, physically and spiritually.
Sushi, I love eating sushi.
Well can I really say that I love eating sushi even though I don’t really eat a lot of raw fish? Maybe I am not a real sushi enthusiast but I do love going to sushi places and eating everything that comes with it. I have my usual go to spots because its super cheap and I like getting a bang for my buck, but on this occasional my boyfriend said why not treat ourselves a bit. So we did, and Chiba is where we headed off to.
I will no longer stay in a relationship whether it be platonic or romantic that will make me feel undeserving. When it comes to my friendships and I have my chosen few, they become more than just friends they turn to family. When you become family to me you are a priority in my life and I will check on you and love you unconditionally. In my relationships, I give my heart fully and I become very loyal and attentive to the wants and needs of who I am dating. But I do not want to be taken for granted anymore and I do not want to feel that no matter how much I give and do with nothing asked for in return to be mistreated or feel that I still didn’t do enough. So I will no longer agree to take less than what I feel I deserve! I will also stop putting in the effort into someone who doesn’t reciprocate it back even in the slightest way. None of us deserve that and if we do have that we need to take that effort and put it into something that will benefit us in the future.
We have officially finished the first week of 2018 and I can say that I am so happy that this week has gone by and there hasn’t been anything that has put me in any depression or giving me any anxiety.
The first week had started with me and my boyfriend feeling under the weather. And while starting the week sick, I had to get back to my job which isn’t exciting at all BUT being reunited with some people that I love definitely makes me feel better. I ended up calling out because I caught a fever and had to recover and care for me and my boyfriend health because we had an important event to go to that was planned since last November of 2017.
The weekend came and gone and I can say I miss it already. I spent the weekend getting my health and fitness motivation on at the LA Fit Expo which was held at the LA Convention Center. It was overwhelming and fun all around and I learned so much about health and lifestyle that I’m so excited to continue to take care of myself this year! I got to meet one of my favorite fitness trainer Massy Arias. I also got to meet my boyfriends favorite YouTube and fitness people as well Bart and Geo from Barbell Brigade. And if your wondering how it all went down, don’t trip I got you guys because there will be a vlog about it coming out this week.
A special treat from this past weekends event was that my uncle got my parents tickets to the Laker game and even gave them an extra two tickets for me and my boyfriend to join in. That had to be one of the best thing to happen at such a last minute notice.
I honestly hope that this new week can continue to bring me peace and enjoyment. Whether it’s something great as maybe another trip to a Laker game or even just waking up and feeling good about myself and that the day is going to be good. I’m ready for it
2018 let’s do this!
Before 2017 came to an end my boyfriend really wanted to take me to a restaurant that he thought I would really like. He had this place saved on his phone for a while.
So I was super excited to end the year at a place where we had both never been.
While shopping for shoes on Melrose and Fairfax we happened to stop by this place that my best friend would constantly tell me to go to and check out because my boyfriend was a huge boba drinker.
Everyone goes through these moments where a song can come on and it immediately puts you in a good mood. A lot of songs can do that for us, but there are songs out that can give you the feeling of empowerment or even a little boost to get you through the day.
For me I have a growing playlist of songs that get me feeling good, but also giving me that extra bump of confidence to have what some may say as “feeling myself.” I started creating this playlist because the songs made me feel good and that’s what I want to feel, Good! I LOVE FEELING GOOD! Because when you feel good, you look good, and when you have it that energy and good vibes can be felt by the people that interact or see throughout your day and it can be quite amazing.
So here I go sharing with you my top 5 songs and they go in no particular order.
Goodbye summer, we are now entering fall and it is of course a good time to look back at how the summer went. Summer of 2017 was filled with 40 hours a week of work, saving money for every little thing I wanted to do, welcoming in the last year of my twenties and having the small pleasures of life fill me up.
