So I finally completed my #powersheetprep 2017. For those of you that do not know or use Powersheets , all that means is that I went through all the exercises and made sure my goals align with who I am now and the past 6 months. I think a lot of it stayed the same but some of it may have changed a little. It may be more refined.
So like always a recap of the Previous month, March. Here we go. So I actually thought i posted March goals but i guess I didnt. So here goes the recap.

Meditate / Silence – Yeah, Nope happened like twice
Get up Early – Kind of. It wasnt 7:30 but it was around 8 until i started not feeling well.
Now on to April Goals:

Call someone regarding starting a Young Adult Group at Church- Kinda did, emailed her on the last day of the month.
Finish the 2nd Game of Thrones Book – A Clash of Kings
Post Lilly that I no longer wear to Poshmark, Mercardi, and BST Boards on Facebook- Kinda did the opposite and bought from these boards. This is what made me realize that I had a problem.
Write THAT Email- started haven’t written in it since. Last night I thought of some stuff but of course I have by now forgotten.
Make and Keep 2 Friend dates
Get into a routine(Morning)
Come up with a Budget –And Stick to it– Contentment Challenge RESTART- Kinda did. Well I am recommitting to it for Lent and no more buying anything.I already blew it at Kohl’s because I was trying to get Kohl’s cash.
Come up with a Savings Plan
Plan for Blog going Forward- Once again kinda. I knew what my goals are for the year and the next three months , one of them being more consistent in posting is still my downfall. I did get a little notebook to carry around with me for when an idea strikes. I have the ideas I just have to actually write them – plain and simple.
Powersheets Prep 2017- Turns out I could put this on the next month
Keep up with Cultivate What Matters Book Club, She Reads Truth , and the In The Wait Study
Call my Best Friend – Well I have texted her and kept in contact so that is an improvement.
Do Blogilates – Yeah did not happen.
Work on Skillshare class- Photoshop- Did not happen. Part of it was I didn’t have the computer that has Photoshop and then I was working a lot.
Get peoples addresses I care about
Read 1 book a week
Do stuff I know I need to do (Exjade and CPAP Machine)- I have mixed feelings about my CPAP machine and I know I did not take the exjade as often as I should and my ferritin level showed it. This shouldn’t be a problem because if I get too much iron in my body I can basically die- you would think that that would do it. It is just brutal on my stomach.
Drink Enough Water – kinda happened because I got a new water bottle and when I used it drank more water and in turn felt better.
Write something everyday- Nope
Blogilates – Nope
Get Up Early (by 7:30)- Not really. I mean I woke up early but then I just went back to sleep.
So now on to March Goals:

Comments Off on 2016 Word of the year – YES YES YES
If you saw my post on Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert, you have seen how i stumbled upon my word of the year, ok maybe not stumbled but got reaffirmed it was my word.
I had been thinking about what I wanted to do this year, what I wanted to accomplish. I did so by using Powersheets and just plain dreaming. This has also been a hard time medically so I have been low on both inspiration, energy and just a general blah feeling.
Two Words: SHONDA RHIMES
I am big #TGIT fan. My favorite is #Scandal and I like #HowToGetAwayWithMurder. Basically Scandal inspires me in my dream of wanting to get to Washington DC to affect people that have rare diseases that no one has heard of.
AND I LOVE TED TALKS
And she also has a book by the same name
Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person
It is also my word of the year because I have let fear run my life and I am tired of being in this blah feeling. I have been afraid of doing it and have been just making plans and not acting on those plans , and I didn’t like how ACT sounded.
I just love when the flowers start blooming. It came at a particularly good time because it provided just the right amount of hope for me. This year has been hard on me and it has been hard for me to see the good in things. Spring is good for reminding people that because it means that new growth is starting and the earth is coming back to life.
Also its spring when Easter finally happens. Easter in itself is enough to give hope because of my belief in God and what he did. He died, for my sins, in one of the most painful way possible and then he rose from the dead three days later. Its remarkably amazing and gives hope and is really helping me to work through these hard days and that there is something more than just what happens on earth. No matter what we suffer through he is there with us.
Comments Off on Life Update Post…….Tries to think of a cool name and fails
So sorry about dropping off the face of the earth lately. I have dropped off the face of the earth because the past three months I have been going through a major health change. I am not going into detail other than I just feel like I got ran over by a truck all the time and have no energy and motivation to do anything, blogging has been no exception.
But the past two days have been one for the books in the good way. I know that for Lent I said I was going to do the #SheReadsTruth Lent study, that was an epic failure. But I have caught up mostly and am to the part about confession and studying. The study that I really enjoyed though was the Jonah study. It spoke to me.
The thing that stuck out the most is the verse which is currently my lockscreen, Jonah 4:4.
And God said , “ Does it do well to be angry?”
And then I finally went to confession for the first time in about 6 months, of course it felt much longer than that though. And after that and hearing something I realized there has been a reason for everything and I believe that finally figured out why I didn’t get the jobs that I wanted or the internships I wanted in DC, it all happened for a reason. If you actually read through this I am impressed and I think I will leave the reasons under wraps for now.
So for now that’s all… I am alive and back to blogging in the month of May in full force. Thank you for all who follow me I seriously don’t think I am that interesting.
Or I have been a bad blogger and not updated in forever. The past couple of weeks months has been hard on me, especially health wise. When you have no energy and feel like crap blogging is the least thing on my mind. I have been keeping up though. I have been doing my internship. Finally decided that I am going to grad school fall 2015. Currently watching the Harry Potter Marathon on ABC Family and loving it. I have been just hanging in there. This post is kinda boring sorry. Just work with me while I work on getting better because right now that I my main priority.
