What to do with the rest of this year so it doesn’t stink 100%

This year is one we definitely won’t be able to forget but definitely will want to.

I’d never dreamed the world as we knew it would be a distant memory. I’m still praying that we can get back a little bit more of what normal was and it be even better. For surely we have learned something from all of this.

It’s times like these I feel that I am blessed that I live in a rural area on top of mountain where I can escape the city where you are constantly reminded of how a virus has changed everyones lives.

So, how can this yr be salvaged from a virus scare so great it has shut down any interaction with others unless they live with you?

First don’t take for granted you actually have people near you. Some people have no one to help them get through. Even though some enjoy being alone, there are so many that hate it and are falling in depression because of it.

We definitely need to pray more because only God can get us out of this mess. We need to focus on things we can change for the better.

I don’t know about you but I have put on so much weight this yr that I don’t think I’ll ever get it off. It’s because of stress. This year has totally become one bad habit after another. I do good for a week and then I’m downhill for three. It’s really not all Corona either. It’s Corona on top of other things. It’s like the virus just makes everything worse.

Today, I want to try again, I might fail and there’s a good chance I will fall and I’ll be on the couch stuffing my face knowing the junk food I’m eating is not going to make me feel any better come tomorrow. What do I do then? Try again because that’s all we can do.

So other than trying to get healthier there are other ways of finding happiness during this crazy year.

We can try to be nicer. Some people are so stressed that just a smile can brighten their day. I know we are all wearing masks but this is where those eyebrows and your eyes come into play. I see people when I go get groceries and you can just tell those that are trying to smile and be happy even with a mask.

Don’t forget little things are important. Do things that causes happiness inside of you. Read a book, have a campfire, go swimming before it’s too late, watch a feel good movie, write someone, or call them. Do acts of kindness, let people know you care and love them. More than anything don’t forget to pray. Be thankful for what you have because no matter what you’re going through or how bad things seem. There’s always someone worse off than you.

So let’s finish 2020 strong together! We can do it, it may be a struggle but we can do it!

Though the struggle is real ,so is God!

Thank you for reading and God Bless ❤️

2020 let it be a great year!

Happy New Year!

I know I’m a little late but they say better late than never 🤷🏼‍♀️

How many people are wanting to lose weight this year?

Yeah me too! I think I do every year and last year I was okay until the second half of the year. We lost a loved one and things just seemed to spiral downward after that.

I got up and dusted myself off and I’m going to get back on that horse if it is dragging me with just one foot in the saddle.

I found an awesome app, or I think it is. It’s the Peloton digital app. You can try it 30 days free without a credit card which was cool but by day one I was ready to sign up. It has everything I need. Time is no excuse either because they have five min videos too. I like the fun run audio. There’s music in the background and someone cheering you on the whole time.

Still need to work on eating better which is always hard for me. I will do it though!

This getting older is cramping my style a little. I am very thankful to get older but I do not like the aches and pains that come with it. I’m hoping adding exercises will help. I’m used to cardio but I gotta start getting stronger so this year I’m focusing more on exercises that will make my body stronger.

I have also entered into the world of reading glasses. Which I’m not fond of at all. I found myself having to put glasses in my bible case, purse, car, and every room in the house. Now, that’s just for when I wear contacts. If I wear my regular glasses then I just have to raise up my glasses to read up close. Since I can’t fix my eyes, I’m going to work on my body.

I still want to focus on my life with God also. I want to be faithful in prayer and reading scripture. I kinda slacked there at the end of last year too. It was definitely not good for my soul.

In one of my journals it started talking about to go to God with every request. The verse is Hebrews 4-16

The first question was what do you want to ask God but don’t because you think it’s to small. Or what do you want to ask but don’t. This was easy for me. My answer was “I don’t have this problem ” and I don’t. I ask God for anything that is on my heart. From healing someone to bringing my cat home because he’s been gone to long. God wants us to talk to him and I talk to him like my friend. He knows our every thought and care so why not just open up to him and just talk to him.

The struggles are real ❤️

I hope everyone reading this has a great year! Thank you for taking the time out to read these words! God Bless

PS I don’t know about you, but I’m so glad the elves on the shelves are gone. I’m sorry ,I will never understand the concept.
