New Year Goals 2017

Happy new year friends! I hope you all have had a safe and fun celebration as we ring in the year 2017. It's crazy to think that this year has already come to an end. Another year has flown by and I still don't feel like I have accomplished as much as I had hoped to. Now, there is always room for improvement and during this past couple of weeks, I've been thinking about what I accomplished well this year and what else I would like to improve on.

Goals are hard to achieve if they're (1) unrealistic (2) not written down and (3) if you have no game plan. Goals are a long process and they don't happen overnight. You must stay patient and never give up. There will be plenty of times you fail but the battle is to continue fighting for what you want to achieve. Whenever I write out my goals, I like to create a step by step plan as to how I am going to achieve them. For example, this year I plan to apply to occupational therapy school. In order for me to do that, I must complete my classes in time, make sure I have more than enough volunteer hours, study and plan on when I'm going to take the GRE  and make my application the best-looking application anyone has ever seen.
Goals are like a slow and long climb up a 100 story building. You climb and climb until there's an obstacle in your way. Either you let that obstacle defeat you or you toughen up, kick that obstacles butt and continue your journey forward. There will be so many different obstacles that fall into your path but it is all about the end result. Never give up on what you want in life because anything is possible as long as you put your heart, time and soul into it ❤️.

Now before I continue my blog post I'd love to know what your goals are this year. No matter how big or small your goal is, go ahead and leave your goals in the comment section below.

  1. Schedule myself some downtime to read a book, meditate, knit, light a candle - take some time to do something I love each day.
  2. Prioritize my health. Continue being pescatarian and avoid all dairy.
  3. Find exercises that work for me. I'm planning on following the BBG workout craze.
  4. Focus on finding happiness by laughing a little more, giving a little more and caring a little less.
  5. MORE SELF-LOVE. Accept who I am as a person and to never compare myself to anyone.
  6. Apply to occupational therapy school. Work now, play later.
  7. Blog at least once a week. I truly love creating content that can relate to others. 
  8. Step outside of my comfort zone and explore the world more.
  9. Keep a tidy environment.When your environment is clear your mind is clear. Marie Kondo, here I come!
  10. Find amazing recipes and learn how to utilize spices in my foods.
  11. Save money. Whether it's for school, vacations or for any big future life events.

I hope you all have a fabulous 2017. Focus on the good things in life and let the past be the past. Thanks for stopping by. Also, don't forget to leave a comment below with what your goals are this year.

Holiday Madness.

Hello everyone and happy holidays! I hope each and every one of you spends these holidays with your loved one.

The holidays are always a crazy time of year. People start stressing about their money, the number of gifts they need to buy, what food they'll make for their holiday gathering and how they'll ever afford getting from point A to point B. This time of the year people also become a bit more selfish. Just always remember, regardless of the holiday each person celebrates we were all brought to this earth for a reason and with that said we're all in this crazy world together. Relax, take a deep breathe and cherish what you have. It's not about the gifts, or the food, or the fabulous lifestyle you have. It's about surrounding yourself with love and appreciating what you have.

Why Long Distance Relationships Suck.

Relationships are a challenge and by adding distance to the equation makes it that much more challenging. It's such a beautiful feeling to be loved by someone. Previously, I've written about why long distance relationships are worth it however, this one is going to be the exact opposite of that. Recently Gary came to visit me in Los Angeles for about 2 weeks but, this past Sunday I had to drop him off at the airport again. I completely forgot how shitty of a feeling it is to say bye to someone that you love so damn much. Honestly, it's one of the most painful feelings in the world saying bye. To me it feels like my heart has been ripped out of my chest and trampled on by a freaking stampede of elephants. You feel so down and in your feelings for quite some time and then it's all okay again... For now.... Until...  
  • You want to go on date night but all you can do is FaceTime your significant other.
  • You'd like to go on an adventure on your day off.
  • You really want to go get day drunk at a brewery.
  • You really want to surprise someone and make them breakfast/lunch/dinner.
  • You really would like to share a pizza with someone else.
  • You really want to hold hands.
  • You really want to cuddle.
  • You just really really want a hug and kisses on your forehead.
Yeah so it sucks. Long distance relationships suck. That's all. Bye. I miss you already.
