REFLECTION & GREAT THINGS

Good evening all!

Just wanted to come on here and share some exciting news with you all 😊😊😊!!!

Earlier this week, Ashford University emailed me saying that I’m on the Dean’s List for Spring 2020. I couldn’t believe it, so I clicked on the link and clear as day, my name is on the list. And found out I only have 24 credits left until graduation. Who knows, the date may change sooner than expected at the rate that I’m going.

You Go Girl!!!!

Mom is officially moved in her new house. It was bittersweet this morning because I opened my door and thought I would see her windows open across the way. She came by earlier today to visit and gave us an update on what she has left to do with the apartment. Tomorrow, Dad and I are going to visit her new home.

Remaining positive through these new changes. I felt a little anxious and upset, so I started my morning reading Romans 8. When I was starting my journey of mental health, my therapist gave this to me as homework:

Whenever you start feeling anxious, depressed, or anything negative bothering you, read this chapter. Take time to study it, take notes, and journal about it. Pray over it. If you do all these things, you’ll start to feel more positive and encouraged. God loves you, even if you had a few hiccups in life. And that’s ok.”

After reading that, my day felt easier, lighter, and clearer. But I know I still have some learning and growing to do on my spiritual walk. I’ve been smiling all day, and just reflecting on things that’s been happening in my life so far. Tomorrow is another day, another chance to try something new, another day to make things right.

Time for me to do some deep soul searching I guess…

Until next time…

MONTHLY REFLECTIONS: JUN. 2020

Good evening 🌙

I hope everyone is ready for a good night’s sleep. After today, I know I will. Just wanted to share my insights on the month of June.

We are six months into the year of 2020, and we’re still remaining positive during these uncertain times. At the beginning of the month, I was off to a rocky start of getting back into my workout routine. From an earlier post, I recall calling UberEats my friend and my enemy. Well, my last order was on the weekend of Father’s Day. For the past few months, sushi and potstickers have been my guilty pleasure for a night or weekend of self-care. Two bites, and Dad was hooked just like me.

I told him that I would order some for him as the other part of his Father’s Day gift (Part 1 was the connecter for headphones for his iPhone). So, that Saturday afternoon, when he woke up from his nap, I surprised him with his own platter of a California Roll and Potstickers as we sat up and watched the film “2012.” I think we’re the only Father/Daughter duo that watches movies like Twister, Collateral, and all kinds of documentaries on Netflix.

Note to Self: Watch Athlete A this weekend, it looks like a GOOD one

Anyway, June was a month of learning. Every week, I’ll find myself rewatching tutorials on filming on a budget by Shameless Maya and how to edit using iMovie and Premier Pro- I think I’m saying that one right. I don’t know I keep watching these videos. Maybe my mind is telling to try YouTube???

Speaking of learning, Mid-June was a moment of learning more about myself through journaling again. I started my 30 Day journaling challenge on the 17th, and it’s now the 29th, 13 days so far, YAY!!!!!

But the past few weeks have taught me so much more about myself. More cons than pros, things that I need to work on and improve. So the month of July will be the month of GOOD HABITS. June was a month of LEARNING & LETTING GO. I’m so excited, I can’t wait!

Ok, it is now a little past 10:30, time for me to take my meds, climb into bed, and get some sleep.

Until next time…

❤️

P.S.- Currently listening to “Count Me In” by Switch, a great song to end a productive day 😊
