Be-YOU-tifully YOU Project 2.0 Week #28


Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

This week I felt like a ball of uncontrollable emotions or maybe even a waterfall.  The beginning of the week was chaotic and painful because I thought that my kitten Puffleton was dying.  He was fading so quickly and even the vet was unsure of how to help him.  I am glad that we brought him in when we did.  I was so sad when we got home and he still would not eat.  That evening I prayed with him and as we filled his bowl with yummy food we sang him the breakfast rhyme that I made up in Arizona with my other cats Alleyjandra and Carl.  It felt like a combination of an answered prayer and a miracle when he started eating.

Now a week later, he appears to be back to normal and is livelier than ever!  I am hoping that maybe he was just a little sick and is better now.  Even if he is ill, I want to do everything I can to make his time on this earth as enjoyable as possible.  I am just so thankful that he was able to recover because he stopped eating for 3 days and I could see him fading.  I am so glad that he is doing well now.

I started my period 10 days late which was a little stressful.  It is a lot like waiting for a visitor who never shows up or hoping that person will answer your text, but it takes them 2 weeks…  Once it arrived, my emotions went haywire.  The smallest things made me feel nostalgic and almost burst into tears.  I also felt insecure and sad for no real reason.  Or maybe there is a reason behind it…  Overall (especially in the past), the month of July has been a sad time for me.  I really hate feeling sad and insecure for no reason.  Thankfully yesterday my period ended and I am feeling like myself again.

I spent a lot of time in the garden and also went for daily walks.  I feel strong and am so happy for that, but I know that my body will benefit from some strength training and stretching.  One thing at a time, right?

Most of my time has been busy running this business.  It has been about 94 days since I took over and I am thankful that everything is going so well!  I love my job and being able to help people.  I spent a lot of time this week thinking of ways to improve the product and also thinking of ways that I would like to grow as a person.

Here are my blog posts from this past week:

This week was light on content and I reblogged a few times, but I am thankful that I can do that.  It also gives me a chance to celebrate my progress!

  • Be Confident.  I did not feel very confident this week, but I am thankful that my partner was able to help me take care of our kitten.
  • Take time for self-care.  I did not let myself go, but I could probably take even better care of myself.
  • Nurture your relationships.  This week had some growing pains, but we got through it.
  • Seek inspiration.  I feel inspired when I go outside.
  • De-clutter.  I have been weeding and de-cluttering the garden.
  • Bring out the BEST in others.  I need to help myself first.
Here is my weekly Be-YOU-tiful pic ❤

I was not very joyful this week, but it was mainly because I was a messy ball of emotions.  I will try again this week!  I hope you will have a wonderful week!
