August Blessings!

August was a crazy month! There was a lot of changes and preparation for new chapters within my life!

I have been working on the prospect of expanding my blog as I have found it difficult to consistently come up with new content and balancing a comfortable level between vulnerability and guarding my heart.

My favorite element of this blog is my ability to engage in these blessings. It is said that the little things in life are the most important. While many moments of this month were overwhelming, using a platform such as this allows me to see all the good I have in my life. I strongly encourage people to document one thing you are grateful for each day!

August 1: I was thankful for watching Mamma Mia and singing with my Mamma 😉

August 2: I enjoyed a chocolate muffin and hazelnut coffee….ALSO I finished one of my classes 2 weeks early!!!

August 6: Today was the Bachelor finale and it was fun watching with my family.

August 7: I was able to relax and grab some zucchini sticks as I came across a rainbow!

August 8: I felt really calm during the car drive and was able to look thru the dollar store. I also rediscovered my love for Oh Wonder.

August 13: I let myself have a mental break, braided my hair and tried on some clothes in the midst of finishing up a difficult class! 

August 16: I showed my Mom the playlist I made for her. Her smile made my heart happy.

August 17: I started the morning much slower than normal and read the bible in hopes of clarity.

Aug 21: I spoke with my mother and her words calmed my spirit.

Aug 22: I saw a friend and we were able to reconnect and go on the swings!

Aug 24: Today encompassed many lovely events. I spend time soaking up the sun, made breakfast for Lotus and I, did some reading, took a swim, cut up some tomatoes (for meal prep), and tucked Lotus away for a nice rest after a day playing fetch!

Aug 25:  I walked in the pool for a bit and ate some delicious pasta on a car ride with a beautiful sunset. Spending some time goofing around in Walmart and listening to 70’s music was a great way to spend my night!

Aug 28: I worked out and blasted some music!

Aug 29: I indulged in a yummy drink from Starbucks!

Aug 30: I sat outside under some trees, reflected, and read.

    Thanks for highlighting the blessings! Many of us do not slow down enough to focus on these. The month of August, for me, was crazy. Our church went through an experience that could have torn us apart but ended up pulling us closer together. I forgot how blessed I am to have the core group God put together. Blessings!

      That is so lovely to hear! Adversity helped strengthen your church and the bond you share. It is so great to see positive come from what seemed to be a negative experience! Thank you for your kind words! It is highly appreciated! God bless!
