Today is a new day…

Everyday is another chance to make a difference in someone else’s life. It’s another chance to be thankful for all the people and things you have in your life. After having quite the experience at my most recent AirBNB stay I am SO VERY THANKFUL to come home to a warm apartment. It sometimes takes a happening to make you realize how fortunate you really are! I am aspiring to be more positive this year! To spread joy and good vibes out to friends and strangers alike everyday!

Just a kind word or smile can have the power to change someone else’s day for the better. Like the cute photo of these bats above that I keep on my cell so every time I look at them they make me smile. Or a text that lets them know you were thinking of them. Small little gestures go a long way…trust me. Have you done or can you do something small that let’s someone know you are thinking of them today? 2 seconds is all it will take!

And always remember this quote from Misha…

Happy New Year

So instead of New Year’s resolutions like I saw someone else mention making intentions. I liked that so much I’m adopting that idea myself. So to keep with that new idea I had some intentions for 2018 to share with you guys. First I am going to try and write more blogs (one a month this year). I also think trying to do the things on the list above would be awesome. I am attempting to get healthier this year. I’ve given up on specifically loosing weight and thought working on something more attainable would be better, at least for my sake. I want to kayak more this year! 🚣‍♀️ I also want to get back to biking again 🚴‍♀️ (that was fun).

I want to BE more positive. So I’m starting small and seeing how I can do that more with each day.

I also want to read more books this year. I have tons of books lying around I have yet to get too… I got stuck at the end of this year reading a HUGE book, IT, by Stephen King. I’m almost done and think I’m going to try and read at least 5 books a month which woulf be 60 books total this year.

What else? I have a few conventions I have already bought tickets to go to but my intention this year is to attend them in cosplay this year!!! 😎

I also want to learn more loom knitting patterns this year. I am also hoping to learn how to crochet and weave this year as well! Possibly how to do Amigurumi would be cool…or how to knit with needles so I can knit Zombies!

A friend of mine posted this idea and I happen to have a big jar I’m going to empty and make this happen this year! Here is to not procrastinating and saying next year I’ll do…

I want to be present more in the moment. I’m going to try and limit the amount of time spent on all the different social apps. Use that time for being outdoors (kayaking and biking), reading, playing video games, hanging out with friends, yarn crafts, painting, traveling, and so much more I can’t even think off right now! The sky is the limit!

I have been going to therapy and it’s helped me. I’m looking forward to working with my therapist this year to work through my pain and sadness. My grief of my grandmother’s passing. To open new doors and move forward instead of looking back at the past.

Here’s to never letting go even when you can’t feel a certain way! One of the most profound quotes I saw and held onto last year. You keep putting one foot in front of the other foot and just keep moving forward.

So with much love and hope for 2018 being my best year yet (and hopefully the same for you as well)!!!

Adieu,
