Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a good day.
I honestly am at a loss of what to type. I know that I should type what/how I feel like but it is just my day always seems the same at the moment and when I do feel like typing something that is worth writing about, I am too busy to bring out my laptop or phone. I honestly think that I need to just keep a notebook on me and write down what I want to write and wait until I have time to type everything out. I am just truly lucky that I do have a job where I am able to sit down and take some time to type out my thoughts and posts. Also with job 1 I am able to enjoy my bible study with Helen Elizabeth, to catch up on my readings, and to just be able to relax a bit before I go into job 2.
But this is isn’t the whole point of this posting. haha Thanks to God, myself, and the experiences (bad and good) I have had over the past 8 almost 9 years have really taught me to slow down and enjoy everyday as it happens and be okay with how my day goes.
I was talking to my Auntie O last night on the phone and just telling her how my life as been going and catching her up on my life (she lives in a different area of California), I was just going on and letting her know how everything in my life was going and how much stuff was happening in it. I mentioned to her that none of the other ladies my age at job 2 had the same things to do in their lives. I always wondered that because me the dorky person I am always thought that people in the same age group were similar and apparently that is not how it always is. My auntie told me because I have greater responsibilities than them and that I am responsible for a lot more than the average 26 year old. In my head though, I feel like that isn’t it and I feel like I do take everyday as it comes and I feel like I do relax but apparently to everyone else, I am “too busy”.
Right now I bet you are wondering what this has to do with me enjoying everyday? Well… don’t worry I am in the same mindset as you. haha So let me get back to why I wanted to post this post.
I live each day enjoying it as much as possible because I know how it feels to really live the saying “Live as it is your last day”. From the age of 18 to now, I have lost between 15-20 family members, family friends, and friends in my life. No one should lose so many people in such a short time and some were unexpected and some were expected but it all still hurts the same. Losing so many people in a short time really changes how a person thinks, feels, and how they ultimately act in life.
I know most days of my life are good and I have no complaints because I have the mindset to make them that way, I take the time to pray to God (which some people don’t do because they don’t believe in God and that is 100% okay), and I try to make certain choices to be okay during the day. Don’t get me wrong I do have bad days! Where I do question God, I question why certain things throughout the day are happening the way they are happening, and I question why I am not at a certain place in my life. I am just so lucky to have been able to train my brain and my life to be an okay place for myself. It didn’t just happen over night, it did take me years and years of growing and making mistakes to finally get to a place that I need to be at to be happy and content in my life.
I just honestly during my days where I am having a good day or even a bad day I reflect on what I have in life and what I am thankful for having. That is how I honestly try to find the good in each day and I try to enjoy the day also.
I would love to hear well read what or how you guys helped yourself grow into the person you are today!
I hope you all have a ____ day!!
