Goodbye August

I can’t believe August flew by so quickly! I feel like I say that about every month but this month is no joke! It’s September guys! Crazy! Yesterday I went into TJMaxx and there were fall decorations everywhere! If you know me you know my favorite season of the year is fall! I love everything about it: the crisp air, the changing colors, all the amazing holidays (including my fav Thanksgiving), my birthday, pumpkin and apple spiced everything! I could go on! But let’s not forget at the beginning of the month of August I set some goals for myself! Let’s see how we did shall we?

Slay

It is Sunday night and I am watching preseason football but before that I watched Beyoncé literally slay the VMAs. Like she def should’ve been the last performer because I don’t know how anyone could follow that. She was on another level. I love her music but I think what I admire about her the most is her standards and how she aspires to have every aspect of her performances perfect! Like she was literally flawless and I’m not just saying that because I’m a huge fan. She’s never satisfied. I guarantee if you asked her if there was anything wrong with that performance she would tell you something that didn’t go exactly as she wanted. She’s like a champion quarterback. Like the Patriots. Ugh I could go on but basically she’s goals!

By Your Side

This morning I woke up feeling meh. I was bloated, low on energy and just not feeling it. I rolled over and checked my phone and there was an email from my loving husband. It was the sweetest email he’s ever written. It had affirmations and support and literally changed my mood instantly. I felt his love from so far away and even though we’re on different continents I know that he’s always on my side and my biggest cheerleader! I remembered that it’s up to me to decide how I’m going to feel and act today and I can either have a crappy day or have an amazing day. I chose the latter!

What’s Your Purpose?

So this week I was reminded of how far I’ve come and how far I have to go all at the same time. It’s really interesting to see how other people live and compare it to how you live your own life.

I remember when I was younger being literally a hot mess. My days would consist of waking up, smoking pot (not saying there’s anything wrong with this I just don’t do it regularly anymore), ordering delivery (the delivery person knew me so well that she would bring treats for my dog), then getting ready for work, working 8-12 hours, then staying after work for another 2 hours getting shitfaced, passing out, repeat. I looked like this:
