Be-YOU-tifully YOU Project 2.0 Week #23

2019

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I hope you had a wonderful 1st week of June!  This is a good time for me to build up my courage.  I started reading a book that prompted me to write about what I would like my life to look like in 5 years.

It honestly scared me a little.  This made me realize that I am still afraid of dreaming BIG.  3 months ago I decided to be brave and dream up the life that I am currently living right now.  It started because I thought it would be nice to make plans for vacation around my birthday just for a week…  One thing led to another and now I am living here.

I have a bad habit of fixating on the bad things that could happen.  Why do I do this to myself?  

I need to remember that “you become what you think about.”  If I continue fixating on what might go wrong then things might go wrong, but if I change my thoughts then I can change my world.  This sounds so simple, but I struggle with it.  It is time for me to take action I want to be brave and challenge myself to make my dreams come true.

JUNE: COURAGE

“Take chances, make mistakes.  That’s how you grow.  Pain nourishes your courage.  You have to fail in order to practice being brave.”

  • Re-organize your life.  It really helps to have less items.  I want to get into the habit of cleaning regularly so that I can maintain overall cleanliness.
  • Be brave.  I want to be brave and stop being so afraid.
  • Get creative.  I have been afraid to be creative, but this week I started drawing with my neon colored pencils.
  • Practice public speaking.  This one definitely scares me, but I will start small just by conversing with people in general.
  • Paint something.  I think right now I am going to start with drawing since it takes less supplies.
  • Do something you have never done before.
  • Go on an adventure.  Just being here has been an adventure!

Overall, this was a good week.  Business is booming and keeping me busy.  I slept well each night and got an early start.  I also worked out most days. I have been taking a break from taking supplements and I think this is a good change.  I was taking whey protein, bcaas, collagen peptides, and pre-workout (not everyday.)

These days, I have been eating good food without obsessing over calorie content.  I could definitely clean up my nutrition more and today when I went grocery shopping I decided NOT to get the sweet bread so that is a good start.  I am probably not getting my protein requirements in yet, but I will focus on that more once I am settled.

Here are my blog posts from this past week:

I almost forgot to post my weekly be-YOU-tiful pic!  Here it is ❤

I managed to blog every day this week!  There were some days when I did not know what to write about so I did a workout so that I could write about that and it kept me accountable.  I am especially proud of my Summer bucket-list (I like that it is laid back too) and my May Recap.

I am wrapping up my current internship and am getting ready to start my final internship at the end of this month.  Then I will officially be done with my undergrad degree!   What happens next?!?!  I am not sure yet, but I am looking forward to figuring it out!

How was your week?  Comment below to share!
