Another Thanksgiving Post

You know, I don't care who you are, you have something to be thankful for. It may be harder to think on what to be thankful for cause of unfortunate incident after the other. But, there is always a bright side.

Today's victory:
Spending time with my family.
That's a lot coming from me. I'm always busy between school and work and gym and being a mommy. I rarely have time to sit down as a family and enjoy the day. It's nice. I'm really fortunate to have this day off. I wish I can have at least one day a week to do this and not just for a holiday, but, you know how the saying goes... no rest for the weary!

Happy Thanksgiving!

You are all beautiful, awesome, and loved!

First Blog: 'Bout Time

Hello! I'm...obviously, new.
The sole purpose of this blog is to talk about day to day celebrations. Either it be a job promotion or getting the house cleaned.
Today's victory: Be Nice! (even if you have to fake it)
This is a project I had to do at school that I already (unknowingly) implemented in my life. Which is interesting being in that culture how it just kind of... rubbed off on me. There is a girl at school, that at first, I had nothing to do with. I didn't want to get to know her.  I didn't like her lifestyle. I hated the way she dressed. I decided to just be nice to her. Maybe she will leave me alone. I was very wrong. Now, she is one of my nicest friends. I am so glad that being nice actually opened me up to understand another person better versus shutting myself off from opportunities.
I don't wake up everyday with a smile on my face, but I make sure I put one on before I walk in the door at work or school. I need to try and put it on before I walk out of my bedroom.

For the record, I highly recommend the "Be Nice (Or Else!)" book by Winn Claybaugh. Highly inspirational, very motivational. I've already read it three times.

Secondly, I started this so I could follow Hyperbole and A Half. That is all.

You are all beautiful, awesome, and loved
