I never would have imagined that I would enjoy something as much as this. Sometimes, it’s pretty simple to come up with post ideas. Other times, it’s kind of tough. I feel like this is a way to escape from my stress while I write and edit these. Yes, I’ll admit that sometimes I do vent on this. However, I am trying to steer away from that. To everyone who has been there from the start of this and to everyone who has hopped on here and there for a few posts. Thank you so much! I appreciate it.
This post is going to be about a little bit of everything honestly. First off, I want to send my deepest condolences to everyone who has been affected by the Vegas shooting. Thank you to all of the First Responders. There is so much hate, evil, and craziness in this world today that one can’t help but feel grateful to be alive every day cause you never know what is going to happen.
I read this quote the other day that really spoke to me. Marianne Williamson said, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.”. Many of us, including myself in this, sabotage good things and success in our lives by wrongly telling ourselves that we don’t deserve it or that we aren’t good enough. That we aren’t worthy of the good things and the success. We live in a world that is full of change, constantly evolving, constantly moving forward. Why be afraid of the task that you’re doing? Because you are afraid of being you and being criticized by others. I am guilty of that. The truth is some people are afraid that when they become a light, they make others’ lives go dark. Some people feel guilty to the fact that they are becoming the best version of themselves that they push people away. The reality is that if you become a light, you are lighting a path for someone else to take. We grow, we achieve goals, we succeed, which empowers others to do the same thing. It’s only by being a light that we do what we are supposed to do in life. So do not be afraid. Have faith and strength in yourself.
I have been slacking recently with my working out, however, I am going to hit it hard again. It’s felt pretty good taking it easy though, work has been pretty busy recently with a lot of work coming up. Which I am thankful for the work. I’m going to start working out in the mornings then every other day in the afternoon. Cardio is going to be more important for me as well as some heavier lifting. Lots and lots of body weight exercises. Also, I’m going to focus more on doing some stretches before and after each of my workouts. If you are thinking about starting to workout or have been getting slack like me, here’s a few quotes that I find motivational that help me keep going.
- The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.
- The body achieves what the mind believes.
- Success does not happen overnight. So don’t give up, keep your eyes on the prize and don’t look back.
- It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.
- It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.
If there’s one piece of advice that I could offer, it would be not to build a wall. You want to lay it brick by brick. If you’re goal is to lose 30 lbs. That’s a great goal. Set small goals to achieve the bigger goal. It’s a confident boost in yourself when you see yourself reaching the small goals. Because that means that you are getting step by step closer to your big goals. It’s important to me that I try to help someone reach their goals.
On a different note, I am into men’s monthly subscription boxes. I’ve tried Five Four Club, Stitchfix, Birchbox, Gentleman’s Box, and few others. If you are looking for some good quality clothes, I recommend Stitchfix. You can pick and choose what clothes you want, as well as deciding how much you want to spend on each type of clothing. So you can pretty much get it to fit in your budget. I did about 4 months worth of boxes for it. I never sent any of the boxes back. It was worth every penny. The clothes always fit me. My favorite box was the Gentleman’s box. It always had a pretty cool tie/bow-tie, pocket square, cologne, lotion, lapels, etc etc. I quit using it though to try some new boxes, which, I will probably end up coming back to it before it’s all said and done. Five Four Club was pretty cool, a lot of different styles however, none of it was really my style. It was good quality clothes though, I did end up getting a few articles of clothing that I liked.
As I stated earlier, this post contains a little bit of everything. I can’t help but feel like in this day and age, people spend too much time worrying and spending time preoccupied with TV, games, and parties. There is so much more to life than drinking and partying. I finally realized that. I admit that I still drink a few every now and then, but I hardly ever overdo it. Life is so beautiful. Take time out your day to walk or go on a hike. Cut your phone off and take in the beauty that is all around you. Treat everyone like you want to be treated. Spread love not hate. Have faith and strength in yourself. I am beyond happy with my life right now. I finally feel like things are going my way and that I am not afraid of the future. In conclusion, Henry David Thoreau said, “Heaven is under our feet, as well as over our heads.”. Truer words have never been spoken. I hope everyone has a great night as well as a great week!
