Thought for the day

“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was ending, he turned into a butterfly.” (Proverb)

I came across this quote on Pinterest and suddenly loved it. I think it's so great and has such a good meaning behind it. I feel like it fits me well with where I'm at right now. I have grown so much over this past year. With starting a healthier lifestyle and taking more time to care for myself I have gained a confidence and happiness with myself that I haven't had in such a long time. I have found that if I'm not truly happy with myself I can't make the people around me happy. I have also found that I need to love myself the way I am and to be proud of myself for all of my accomplishments.

Favorite season

πŸ‚  My favorite season has always been Fall.........
I love Fall everything about it makes me so happy! I love that the weather gets just a little cooler, especially when you can feel the crispness in the air. I love to see the leaves change colors and fall to the ground. I think all of the Fall colors are so pretty. I grew up watching BYU football with my dad and grandpa, so I enjoy watching them play each season. When it gets chillier outside I love to make and eat soup I always get such a comforting warm feeling when I eat soup. I really like hot chocolate as well. I also get so excited when I can start wearing long sleeve shirts and sweaters.
πŸŽƒ  Last but not least I love Halloween all the fun decorations and costumes! I think it's such a fun holiday. After the fourth of July I always want to put up my Fall decorations. I know it's crazy but I really do.

My top 5 beauty products

I have always been a girly girl. I enjoy getting dolled up doing my hair and make up nice and putting on a nice outfit. It always makes me feel good. Don't get me wrong, most of the products I use I get from the grocery store. So it's not like I'm breaking the bank to support my habit. I wanted to share what my favorite items to use are....
These are in no specific order

* I love the Paul Mitchell hair spray (Freeze and Shine). My mom introduced me to this when I was younger and I always loved the smell of it plus it's not a heavy hairspray so it doesn't weigh your hair down and it holds all day. It is a little more expensive but it's worth it!


* I was trying to find a good foundation and I had been asking around to all of my friends what brand they like and use. Someone I work with suggested L'OrΓ©al's Infallible Pro-Matte. This foundation is great! It doesn't feel heavy and it lasts all day, and it looks so good. I have found that I only put it …

Lifestyle changes I need to make....

I have been thinking that I need to make some changes, not just for my physical health but also for my emotional and spiritual health as well.

↠ I need to go out of my way once a day to compliment myself. Just something simple but I want to make sure I am giving myself praise and encouragement. Instead of always putting myself down and picking out all my flaws and things I am doing wrong.
➼ I am proud of myself for my weight loss that I have had so far, but I know that I really need to step up my game if I want to see the results that I am wanting. I have been really good with changing my diet and eating habits. I just need to be better with my exercise routine and get it to where its more of a daily habit not just an occasional thing I do.
⤖ Practice gratitude, every night as I say my prayers before bed I need to be extra grateful and thankful for all of the blessings in my life. And for all of the wonderful things that happened that day.

Share a vivid dream....

I had this dream when I was in kindergarten (over 20 years ago) and I remember it like it was yesterday.
The dream started out looking at my grandparents house from the front yard. And in the center of the grass there was a hill that wasn't normally there. Come to find out I was buried in the front yard and the hill was from me. I had been outside with my grandma and an ear-wig crawled in my ear and killed me. (I thought that is what would happen if an ear-wig crawled inside your ear). πŸ›
That is all I remember about the dream but that is enough to have made me terrified of ear-wigs since then. They are just so gross and creepy looking..RIGHT?!!!

Staying strong in hard times....

This week has been very challenging for me.

I have had to make some tough decisions. I have learned that I can stand up for myself and that I need to stand up for myself. I have always had a hard time standing up for myself, I have always felt like I can't do anything on my own and that I need the help from other people. Although for the past few weeks I have realized that I need to be able to be on my own and not feel like I can't do anything without the help of other people. I have always been a people pleaser and I know that I need to do what is best for me. I always feel like I have to put my best face forward and try to hide my real feelings from the world. But you can only take so much before it becomes too draining on your soul and mental state. I have had to do a lot of soul searching and I feel like I have grown. Sometimes what we think is the best thing for us turns out to be a stepping stone in becoming the best person you can be. I do know that with whatever situati…
