Day 4

Word choice: Enjoy, Journey, and failure.


Wherever there’s failure there’s success. Failure hurts but it’s indeed a part of life, I’ve failed more than I would ever admit. I can’t say I like failing but I’m human. BUT without failure what do you learn? Failure has taught to me how to be compassionate, empathetic and goal oriented. It’s always good to fail because its a steppingstone. When people become successful they always forget their journey, their struggle and past. Every time I failed at something at that moment I became overwhelmed, stressed out and even more dramatic than I am now! The journey of failure shaped my character, taught me growth, and allowed me to become humble. Without failure how would you reach your potential?….

They say “if you never failed, you’ve never lived” so everyone go out and fail at something lol just kidding!

Attempting to Eat better

Recently I was informed by my doctor that I’m negative blood type and that I needed to eliminate certain foods out my diet. Now everyone who knows me know I am a pretty healthy eater. I’ve tried the vegan lifestyle, enjoyed it but it wasn’t for me and vegetarian as well but I love fish tooo much! Sadly my doctor told me I had to eliminate the fish part and only consume veggies, fruits and whatever else that would provide me protein. Well above there is a piece of fish in the picture of course, tuna steak to be exact! Now I’ve been eating salads for lunch for two weeks straight with fish, trying to be on this weight loss journey and become more healthier. Needless to say I am miserable lol salads are starting to taste like grass and after my workouts I’m always extremely hungry. I enjoy being a pescatarian and I dread the idea of not eating fish anymore. I gained more weight attempting to be a vegan/vegetarian than I have eating fish. Taking any supplement or pill is against everything I stand for, so the idea of taking a b12 supplement isn’t an option for me especially when I can eat fish. I can say my diet is weird, I don’t like eggs, milk (unless its almond milk), and certain cheese. Guess I’m all over the place! Still trying to figure things out, but If you’re reading this post and have any suggestions to make the journey less hectic  please don’t hesitate to comment.

Day 3

Word choice: Beyond, Circumstance, Joy

IMG_2137

I try to never let negative people and horrible circumstances steal my joy. One bad situation can bring stress upon anyone and how you react to it determines your emotional state. I read a book by Robert Schram called “Maximize Life by Living for Peace, Harmony and Joy.” In this book, her states “bring joy to wherever you go and do not react to circumstances. You make your own circumstances and can change those that discourage, or bring you and others down” (Schram, pp. 281). He helped me realize that no matter the circumstances are every situation has potential to bring gratitude and happiness to your life. Nowadays I attempt shed light on everything even if it’s the hardest thing to do. Be the light and shine light one.

Seven Days of Affirmations

I’m doing the seven days of affirmations presented by the lovely journalist Alex Elle.
Its day two and I am a bit behind on the challenged but better late than never right! As a counselor, I educate my clients on gratitude journals and positive affirmations, but never really took the time to try it out myself so here it goes. It’s not easy to think of positive things to say and I never really say anything positive about myself.
Dates: 7/17-7/24

Day1: Word choice are Love, Prevails and Trials

IMG_2122

Life is a big method of trial and error. Some people tend to be discourage when they have attempted to do something and failed in the process. Personally, I keep trying until the success is achieved but some people might just give up. Example of Trial and Error in my life: Last post I talked about going biking, now I didn’t know how to ride the bike but I kept trying until it became natural to ride. Some things in life require you to fail, it’s simply a lesson. Just because you failed at doing something doesn’t make you a failure but it should motivate the person to want to do better or at least learn from their experiences.

Day2: Word choice Hurt, Healing, Forward

IMG_2124

If you ever been hurt your bound to feel vulnerable, it’s natural. I’ve been hurt several times and angry with everyone. I decided to be miserable and dwelled on being hurt than trying to move forward. When your hurt you tend to feel stuck in one place and you get nowhere. I used to question how do I get through this? where so I start in order to move forward? why am I not strong enough? Or often compared my misery to others. Healing isn’t an easy process, but if learn ways to cope with your emotions or have a support circle it can be. Choose progression and growth over any obstacle in life.

4 days of fun

So since my last post I’ve been doing things I wouldn’t normally do. It’s usually hard for me to break my normal routine, but after awhile you will realize that your life need new adventures.

Day 1. Biking

img_0273

Never have I ever thought I would learn how to ride a bike….. YES LEARN at the age of 24 I have never owned a bike. After a few falls and attempts, I mastered the skill. Biking was a very tiring expereince especially for a person who’s not in perfect shape, but I absolutely loved it. I felt amazing after riding, my heart rate was up, my body was more relaxed, I met alot of people and the scenary of the trails are awesome! Purchasing my own bike is currently a goal.

Day 2. Yoga In the Park

IMG_1337Yoga in the park is a thing! It comes every summer and leaves by winter. I’ve been doing yoga in the park since summer of 2016 and now it’s back. This day was extremely hot and first day of doing yoga again was tough. I enjoy doing yoga because it keeps me grounded and focused. Yoga helps me feel alive and present. Working in the mental health field doing yoga teaches me how to breathe and learn how to react to stress peacefully. Yoga makes me feel strong and liberated! I encourage everyone to do yoga as much as possible.

Day 3. Indoor Rock climbing

IMG_1647A friend of mine talked me into rocking climbing, he stated that this sport helps reduce stress, increase brain functioning and build confidence. Well…. I was trying to figure out where the hell he got this information from because I almost had an anxiety attack lol. I have a huge fear of heights, so rock climbing was quite an experience. Mentally I believe rock climbing teaches you determination, even though by body was tired by the second go round I wanted to finish. Nothing else mattered the goal was for me not to give up and I didn’t! Now what made it hard for me was that once I reached the top I was afraid to come back down. I refused to jump off the wall and use the rope to come down, so instead I climbed down. My body was extremely sore rock climbing requires a lot of strength, strength in which I lacked lol! It was an experience maybe I workout a few times before I decide to do it again.

Day 4. Soccer

Once upon a time I played soccer in my youth. This day a few of my girlfriends and I decided to give it a shot! Boy was it an epic fail, it was fun but we were all rusty! None of us were physically in shape to run from one goal to another, were definitely burnt out really quick. Having fun was the ultimate accomplishment, everyone should play a sport you’re not good at it brings laughter.
