Hi guys! I am feel so pumped up and ready to go. Feeling so much better after our three week retrograde adventure. I naively thought that this one would go smoothly since it was all about making progress. Boy was I wrong. Mercury seriously kicked my butt this past month. I definitely got some major clarity on my situations from during it. Not to mention the usual sleepless nights and moody days.
Grumpy butt for sure. But as the fog started to lift I felt my energy and spirits lift. Whew!
In all fairness, how can I be upset for my birthday was around the corner. Tuesday marked my 32nd year on this planet. I have to admit, I was a bit upset about getting older (mainly retrograde and ego to blame on this one), those pains of future and past tripping. I started to spiral into the land of self doubt and pity. You know, the what ifs and should ofs? But my spirits lifted this weekend when I celebrated with my friends. I definitely felt the love.
My boyfriend took me out to karaoke where along with our friends closed the place down. My crew knows how to do the damn thing. Plus we even had custom made t-shirts for the event. As the night went on I looked around and saw how grateful I am to have so many wonderful people in my life. Even the ones who don't live in state still some how managed to celebrate with me. I was filled with such a feeling of home and comfort. These people around me love me for who I am. They meet me right where I am.
So 32 here I come! I am ready for what you have in store for me. Because with my friends by my side I know I can accomplish anything.
Omg!!! I have gotten the nesting bug. I can't stop organizing our apartment. Not that it's a bad thing but I think I am beginning to get a little obsessed. I have reorganized, cleaned out and getting rid of things we don't need.
It started when I realized that our little one bedroom was starting to get cramped with clutter. I also watched a periscope where one of my favorite bloggers reorganized her apartment live. So I followed her lead.
This energy from the full moon and Mercury's gave me a nudge to let go, de-smutz and minimize my life.
I also feel as if the closer we get to spring, the more and more we want to spring clean. I also live with a Virgo so organization, lists, and minimizing my stuff has become a daily practice.
What are some of your favorite ways to organize? Have you gotten the bug yet?
My top ways to organize your Home:
Make a mood board or find ideas on Pintrest
Play some upbeat fast paced music
Start room by room, closet and cabinet by closet and cabinet
Create piles- to sell, to donate and to keep
Spend a few moments making sure the item brings you joy
Rule of thumb- If it hasn't been worn, used or seen for over 6 months, that's an automatic sign it needs to go
If you hold sentimental value to certain items think about storage options
Have a give away party and switch clothes and items with friends
Take your time and don't rush.
Since I talked so much about my friendship I wanted to share one of m favorite things that we do.
My friends and I started Yoga Thursdays a while back. We stopped for a few months bc one of us moved to another state.
Last week while we talked about how much we missed those girls nights and the yoga time we spent together. So I decided to put together a trial run of yoga Thursdays through FaceTime.
It worked! It was so amazing, it didn't feel as if our friend was miles away from us. We chatted, drank tea and did our yoga session.
Yoga Thursdays are back on and I couldn't be happier.
What better way to unwind than a night with your friends? I can't wait till tonight and to continue our tradition. hehehe
So no matter where your friends are stay connected as much as possible. Friendship is one of the greatest gifts we are given.
Another random tid bit from my findings the past few days.
I have finally come to terms with my favorite color. Silly I know but I have had an on and off relationship with pink.
For the longest time I hid from the color pink for the silliest of reasons. I though in order for me to seem "tough" and tom boy like I wasn't aloud to like pink.
How ridiculous is that?! Then I realized how much stuff that I have is bright, hot pink!
I have found that pink is bright, bold, strong and full of attitude. Just like me! So silly as it seems but I have finally found my favorite color.
