reminder

Tuesday reminder that you can do it.

Whatever fear may be holding you back, or doubt, or confusion… It’s all nothing in the grand scheme of life.

Tuesday reminder that no moment defines you forever.

That failed exam, those painful words, the person that you wish you’d never met… You’re never stuck in one spot. You get to move and change and grow.

Tuesday reminder that you are more than what you have.

It’s not your clothes, your bank account, or your resume that make you you. It’s the way you decide to act and react to the world.

Tuesday reminder that making mistakes is totally okay.

You can only do so much. You can only try so hard. You can definitely always say sorry. You should forgive yourself.

Tuesday reminder that you are enough.

You always will be enough. You incredible being, you.

Tuesday reminder that you should show someone some love today.

I guarantee that someone around you could use a hug or even a smile. Someone could use some reassurance that they are not alone.

Monday feels

It’s Monday morning and I’m feeling really good. So to kick off this week, I’m going to reflect on some things that I am head over heels happy about…

-> The weather is beautiful and cool and slightly windy and I am in love. I know it’ll warm up by noon, but for now, I am enjoying sitting outside and not sweating!

-> Pumpkin spice coffee from Trader Joe’s! I’ve hardcore resisted getting a PSL from Starbucks, but that didn’t stop me from buying pumpkin spice coffee grounds… It’s actually pretty good for a flavored coffee and I’m having the time of my life drinking it while enjoying this weather right now!

-> My trip to Magnolia this upcoming weekend… We’re talking a 10k trail race with the fam, pumpkin carving, and a 50 mile ride on the Oilman course!

-> Colony House.. A band I recently found on Spotify. I highly recommend “Moving Forward”!

-> Spanish! I just watched a video for an assignment and was expecting to have to translate it. But the more I tried to think about translating it in my head, the more I realized that I already understood what it was saying. This makes me ridiculously happy!

-> Enjoying Genetics… Some might recall that this time last year Genetics was a nightmare for me and I had to drop the class.. Well, this semester my professor is the coolest man ever and the way he’s presented the material is manageable and incredibly interesting! I do have a midterm tomorrow though, so wish me luck!

-> UT football! I went to my first game this weekend, and although we lost (cough cough refs cough cough), it was so fun and I’ve been convinced to buy a Big Ticket next year.

-> Feeling strong and ready for 70.3! I had been pretty worried about this, but now I’m feeling really really good.

-> Focusing on what matters and refusing to let negativity drain me of all energy.

I feel good about feeling good. Life is cool and crazy but very very wonderful.

In the past, the school year has been my all. Life stops and studies begin. Spontaneous trips and adventures with friends are squashed down and stress takes it place.

Not this year.

It’s more like… Life continued.

And it’s keeping me busy and excited and full of life.

Hi I’m going to Italy today!

Surprise!

See you in 10 days!

I’ll be carb-loading for my race on the 20th while I’m there. 😉

Pasta awaits.
