We found a cute tunnel in the middle of old town, it used to be part of the rail road.
Our God babies came to visit for 10 days while mommy went to see daddy in Spain. They haven’t even been gone 12 hours and it feels like my house is too empty and quiet. While they were here, they taught Little Hoot how to crawl.
Here are some snippets from our weekend. Basically lots of Pokemon hunting
Are you an all or nothing type person?
I’m starting to realize I am. I truly think it’s why I struggle in a lot of aspects of my life.I get so focused on one thing that nothing else matters.
It’s happened with diets, working out, photography, reading, trying to get pregnant, and numerous amounts of other things. It’s like my brain can only focus on one thing at a time.
I can make lists, set up routines, tell myself self that things will change. But they never do. Something catches my eye and I get so wrapped up in it. I am trying to be better.
For example this time around, instead of going cold turkey whole30, we are using up everything we have and just not buying it again. It’s helped us not get the carb flu, but it’s messing with my head. I have the whole mindset “we don’t eat this” but it’s still in my house until it’s gone.
So how do you deal with this? Are there any steps I can take? Or am I doomed to be an all or nothing person forever?
Typically When you participate in a photo challenge like this, you start on the first of the year. But I am starting the day before my 23rd birthday. I have big goals this year and I want them all to be documented. Small, big, mundane, all of it.
How is it almost a new year? I mean really, where did 2014 go? This year was a year of transition for us.
Almost every other month I was on my way to or from somewhere.
In October we finally moved into our new house in the NoVa area. We found a church with an awesome youth group to serve with and are finally settling in.
Now that we are here and will be here for a few years, I have been really thinking about what I would like for this new chapter of life to say. I am starting with health, spiritual, physical and mental.
*daily devos by myself and with Bubo. We have already started this with the Jesse Tree Advent.
*protect my quiet time better, put it above everything else
*worship more often, in everyday little tasks
*start eliminating chemicals (like in cleaners and cosmetics)
*at least 30 mins of heart raising activity daily.
I feel like by doing 1 and 2, my mental health will automatically start to heal. (anxiety, depression, toxic thoughts)
Also, I am taking a step back from commercialism. I.E. if I cant make it I don’t need it. This will be my hardest lifestyle rewrite. ( I might have an obsession with the brands Fossil and Bare Essentials, and shopping for things in general.)
So here is to 2015 the year of Health.
