I’m tired about worrying. I’m tired of cooking. Planning. Worrying about money. I’m tired of work. I’m tired of not having enough to do what I need to do. I’m tired of dealing with people that are not like me. Is there anyone I can be with that makes me feel like the old me? I’m so sick and tired of everything and exhausted of following rules and routines. I’m so done about being worried this might happen or that. I have an 8 hour shift tomorrow and I need sleep.
Day 1: Yoga Every Damn Day
I don’t know about everyday but I will try! This sequence is a little fast paced so some yoga knowledge would make your experience smoother but there are so many other great videos. Just type in ” yoga for beginners” on youtube.
My usual destination for my groceries is at Food 4 Less. I have a specific route, I write my grocery list by each aisle in my head, I know my favorite brands and I can finish my shopping in less than 30 minutes. Today, because of my stress of time (as usual, this will be noted for next time I follow this feeling) I went to Walmart for the first time and spent double! I use my words specifically, double! I stayed in bed for an hour wallowing in my misery. How did ever spent so much and how I still have 14 days left of my next check?! I wasn’t able to return any of the items and hubby wasn’t even there to calm me down.
I got up, pissed at myself and took a shower to clean the guilt off of me. Mistakes…My first instinct was natural but mistakes are so underrated. If ones mind is at a level to understand how important mistakes are, they would understand that even though I may have spent too much money, I now realize so many great things: I know where to get cheap good groceries and it also emphasizes my love for Food 4 Less even more! I see every moment of my life as a guru. Everything I do and everything that happens to me, I see it as an opportunity to learn something.
I want to put my money in a lot of places, makeup, drawers, clothes and jewelry and all the other things I’ve been constantly putting aside because it’s between having a meal or buying a shirt. There was a time where most of my money, after all the bills and such were taken care of, would go straight to healthy organic good food. Everything about me changed:
- I was HAPPY to know how to take care of myself and treat my body so well and be smart enough not to eat processed food. It truly put me in HAPPY and wonderful mood.
- I was ACNE-FREE. I know very well when I’m on a good streak with my diet because my face is clear and smooth. No redness or breakouts.
- I SAVE money. Instead of buying products to cure my acne, expensive end of chap sticks, buying expensive scrubs and moisturizers… I simply have to have a good diet and my face clears up, my lips are moisturized, my face is smooth and not dry. Having a good diet and drinking water as regularly as you can makes a big difference vanity wise. I can easily make my own smoothie for $4 bucks and skip out on a $40 face mask.
- I’m LESS sick. Every time I bent down to get something, my head would hurt. This happened regularly. My stomach always hurt. It was always hard for me to wake up and go to sleep. I would always be cold (low iron).
All of this contributes to a happy me, that’s means i’m less stressed out which affects so many aspects of my life! Even as simple as me growing my hair normally again. Stress is the number one cause of health problems. I know I may not have drawers for my makeup or pretty clothes but I know I’ll be treating my body like a princess and giving it everything it needs to be happy.
