Today started off quite late but I guess thats allowed on Sundays. I fell back to sleep after being up from 8 to 10 am. And we all stayed in bed till 1 pm. Just about right for the weekend I think. Other than relaxing today, I’ve cleaned my car and put on a load of laundry. I’m planning on doing some creative work but I just have to get started with it. That’s always the hardest part, actually start with any project. Once I’ve started I can go on for hours.
I did plan on doing a workout as well but I think that has to wait till tomorrow. My body is extremely sore so I’ll take today as a rest day. I’ve also posted a new video on YouTube, so if you’re interested and have seven minutes to spare, you can check it out right here.
To be honest today hasn’t been the best day. Exhausting in some ways but most of all tiering. I’m absolutely ready to fall asleep any minute now but before I do I wanted to share my blessings instead of my complains. Because there is truly so much we can be grateful for each and every day.
When you see your child smiling
The best feeling in the world is when you see your baby smiling back at you, and you haven’t even done anything, just shown them your face. It melts my heart right down to the ground.
We often take our health for granted and only realize how lucky we are when we get a cold or get sick. There are so many people suffering from so much more and it can be a daily battle to get to the next day. So being well and healthy is something we shouldn’t take lightly.
Food on the table
It’s amazing that we can fill up our fridge whenever we want and we only need to take a couple of steps into the kitchen to get water. Imagine struggling everyday, not knowing if you’ll find food or water the next day. We should always keep reminding ourself how blessed we are.
Family and friends
Lastly I’m grateful for my amazing friends who have supported me and been there through it all. They are less than a handful but I can truly say they have been there through it all. And my family, especially my mother, has been a huge rock for me to lean on whenever I need.
Before you complain about what you don’t have or how awful your life is, take a step back and look at the big picture. You’ll probably see that you have more than enough so count your blessings and not your complains.
Ok, so it’s the morning again. I said I would post several times yesterday and somehow my feet only found their way to the couch and then my bed between 10 & 11 o’clock. I can’t remember when I fell into bed, barely changing into my pjs. I was so tired, so exhausted. I didn’t even know it. I think this is the first time I’m actually sitting down and just breathing. Listening to the silence around me. And some footsteps in the distance. Today will hopefully be a nice and calm day, where I can check of some things on my o so famous ‘to-do’ list. That list will never end but on the agenda today are only some small things I have to do.
(Do you like me saying hello or getting right to the point in my blog posts? Let me know in the comment box below).
I haven’t updated you with a real “what’s going on in my life” post in a while. The thing is actually that I’m mostly working right now and every second of spear time I have I spend on WordPress or YouTube! I really love it. I get to do what I’m passionate about at work and at home. Other than that I try to squeeze in a workout or two here and there. It’s actually gone pretty well, I must say, and I think I’m going to start with a vegetarian week tomorrow. Meaning I will not eat any, and I mean any, meat or fish for a whole week. Sounds easy, but I think it’s going to be rather hard. I love myself a steak or some nice fried fish, but I think I will manage. We’ll see, I will keep you updated.
Now today, my only free day off this week, I did some editing on my new video coming up on Friday, and had my daily workout. Now I know it’s not Wednesday but I’m just so exited and have so much energy that I just wanted to share what I did for my workout.
Is it possible to be more exhausted, sore and tired? Had a short night last night and today isn’t going to be any different, plus all the soreness from my two past workouts. But it’s worth it! And the up side is that we’re having breakfast at school tomorrow morning and just a cozy self-care day with my class, meaning we can do whatever we’d like on eachothers hair.
Other than that our salong at school today had it’s last day with customers. I had a lovely lady who is going to come as a model when I start my training as well so I’m utterly grateful for that. And like always I had my usual Thursday work day from 5 – 9 pm, so I can’t wait to hit the bed in a minute or two and fade into dreamland.
Good night world,
