Falling Back In Love With Your Passion!

Monday, September 17, 2018

 I think we all have ended up in a place where we don’t know what to do or what’s next for us. It may be a hobby, a relationship, a job, anything. You can love something and if you’re not tentative you can fall out of love with it.

I've always enjoyed writing, I love English class and always passed with A's. I wanted to be a journalist for the longest time and slowly over time I started to lose the spark of wanting to write.
I wasn’t interested, and I just didn’t like it and I started to get worried because this is something that I’ve always enjoyed and loved, and it was slipping away.

so, I took a break a few times ha-ha and after looking at old blog post and thinking of the reason why I started a blog in the first place, this inspiration came. and I wanted to write again, and I wanted to share things again and it started to feel natural.
That’s what I wanted! I wanted to love blogging because it is my hobby. I do it because I like sharing things with everyone and in person I’m much more of an introvert but when I’m sharing things with you all I’m an extrovert and I just love it.

Whenever your passion or love becomes a chore or a demand it becomes not fun anymore. you start to lose the reason you did it in the first place. so never let go of that. Never treat your passion like a job as the saying goes. (or something like that lol)

And if you are in a rut just know, it won’t be forever. eventually you will love what you do again. it just takes time. I mean when you stop working on something you must remember the skill all over again.

Are You A Morning Person?

Sunday, November 5, 2017

Mornings are my favorite part of the day! I love waking up early and seeing the sun come up and the birds chirping (as cliche as that sounds lol) It's just a beautiful time of day.

Sleeping in makes me feel so unproductive!! And I HATE that feeling. I feel more tired then I did before I even went to sleep. My body is always super drained and I feel like my morning passed me by.

I love my mornings! They are peaceful and it has a different feeling than In the afternoon. Through out the work week I wake up at 5am everyday. So when the weekend rolls around I feel bad sleeping past 8am. Its such a different feeling waking up early and getting your day started. Even if its just going to dutch bros and grabbing coffee. (I love dutch bros haha)

I also feel like we should make the most out of our days and by doing that is, WAKING UP EARLY! Making good use of your daylight is the greatest feeling. Then when night comes you can relax, go out to eat, whatever you want.

I find myself more productive during the daylight hours. Mornings are usually the time when I run errands, because the stores are not crowded. I wash my car, grocery shop etc. I just enjoy my mornings so much more than I did a few years ago.

Are you a morning person or a night person?

Tips on having a Productive Work Week

Sunday, December 11, 2016

Hey Hey There! Long time no see. Well let's put all that aside because today I'm talking{ all } about having a productive work week. I know finding that motivation to prepare for a new work week can be draining (for some) AKA me. but with a few simple preparations it will be a piece of cake. I like to start early on Sunday mornings, I feel more productive when my day starts between 7-9am. I definitely try not to procrastinate (remember the more you put off today the more you have to do through out the week)

I usually like to start with my weekly planning || I plan out all the things I may have due [ bills etc] or things I have to get done [ washing clothes, answering emails, clean my car etc] Luckily for me my planner comes with a printed out schedule for easy planning. I like to set a goal of 3 productive outcomes for the week and 3 productive outcomes for the day.

After I get all of my planning done I get to work. First on the list | Washing Clothes | I prefer to get all my washing done on Sunday or Saturday so that when the new work week rolls around I'm all set and prepared || And who doesn't love the smell of freshly washed laundry.

Plan your meals and grocery shop || I use this super helpful grocery shopping list through out the week, that way I know exactly what foods I need. It also makes meal planning a lot easier.

 Pick out your outfits. This may be an extra step but it definitely helps in the long wrong on those days you may be in a hurry. I like to pick out and iron my clothes in advance for a stress free easy morning.

Clean your house and your car. This is probably my favorite thing to do. I love having a clean, fresh car come Monday morning. It makes my drives my peaceful actually. Having a clean house when you wake up in the morning is also another icing on the cake. My day doesn't feel fulfilling if I wake up with cl- udder all around me.

Drink plenty of water. This may not seem like a big process but drinking water through out the day keeps you hydrated and refreshed.

Remember to check and respond to emails. This may be one of those dreadful tasks but keeping a clean organized inbox makes you feel better and keeps your on track and productive. I know I hate those days you wait a whole week to check your email and you may have 1,000 unread emails in your inbox. Then you feel overwhelmed and stressed. I advice you check and respond to emails daily.

 My last tip of the day is to take 20mins to an hour to just meditate and dedicate time to yourself to write down your thoughts to just clear your mind. Just grab some tea and find a nice quiet spot all to yourself.

Get plenty of Rest, Relax and Enjoy your Sunday!!
