Well hi there! Long time no chat 🙂
A week long vacation with little to no cell service can be a bit of an adjustment these days. When we finally got to the UP, and our service drastically changed to no service at all, my 19 year old sister and I were slightly irritated. It’s a little ridiculous how attached we can get to that small little device, isn’t it? And not only attached to the device, but attached to all that comes with it. Having everything at your fingertips, from social media to email to a detailed weather forecast, we are truly spoiled.
Vacation is also a great time to start a book. You Are a Badass* (thank you Nicole for recommending) is truly just what I needed at this time in my life. I still have my moments where I feel like I haven’t quite adjusted to our move yet. And for someone who deals with having a Type A personality, always wants things to be perfect, and struggles with anxiety from time to time, I can already tell this book going to be so helpful.
Something that has stuck out to me so far is when the author says “This isn’t just about believing and being all high-vibe when the sun is out and the bunnies are hopping around, either. This is about believing, even when things are at their most uncertain or absolute crappiest, that there is a bright shiny field within your reach.”
I always do my best to practice this… Having faith and staying positive. However when anxiety finds it’s way into your thoughts, those two things can be hard to remember. Being aware of your thought patterns and knowing you can change them for the better is going to allow you to get back on the “glass half full” mentality.
I’m sure I’ll have more to discuss from the book once I get further in, but for now let’s chat about this superfood smoothie, shall we?
