Sunday Shares | What I've Been Loving


Today I went to get a mani/pedi with a friend and wished once again that I went to get my nails done more often. It's my favorite way to treat myself. After that, we went out to dinner then came back to my apartment to play video games and chill. It's been a lowkey day, as most of my weekends are. Now that spring is here, I should probably be making more of an effort to go out and do things but man I'm a sucker for staying in.

The past two weeks have been pretty hectic work-wise but in a good way because I got a promotion! I'm really happy about it. Work has been stressful lately where I'm feeling like I could be doing better, but I also know that I try my hardest and do a good job, even on my off days. I'm reminding myself that I earned this.

Oh and by the way, I'm Team Yanny.

Here's what I've been loving lately:

Partners


There is always something to learn about love and relationships and here is my latest lesson: There is a difference between a boyfriend and a partner. There is not a difference between a partner and a fiancé or husband.

The Importance Of Asking For Help


It's been a weird week for me with one key takeaway: It's not only okay to ask for help when you need it, it's important.

Finding Your Spark: Emotions, Atmosphere, Intimacy And Joy In a Click


I decided to start the "Finding Your Spark" series to shine a light on different types of people who are following various paths – their OWN paths, whatever those may be. The whole idea is that there's no single way to live life and a person doesn't have to be "famous" to inspire others. These individuals have found what inspires them, motivates them, makes them happy. And they've run with it.

Sunday Shares | What I've Been Loving


I usually write these posts on the Saturday morning before it goes up, but this time it's pretty late, about 10:30 at night. And to be honest, I'm hoping to crank it out kinda quickly because there's ice cream in the freezer and it's not gonna eat itself.

This past week has been really, really good. While I don't want to jinx it, I'd say spring is finally here to stay. The happiest time of the year. It's been I'll-be-fine-without-a-jacket warm and I'm loving it. Today it hit 80. I wore a dress. I spent my morning reading on the balcony and my afternoon having a picnic lunch with Rahul and lying in the sun. What could be better.

Here's what I've been loving lately:

Give Yourself Some Credit


There's a woman at my gym who I see nearly every time I'm there. She's always in my spin class, she was always in the pilates class I used to go to, she's always on the fitness floor with me lifting weights. She's just always there (and her back muscles are insane).

Whenever I see her, I'm impressed and a little envious. I think to myself, Jeez, I wish I was as motivated as she is. I wish I worked out as often as she does. I should. She works out SO MUCH.

Then I realize... I'm there too.

If I'm seeing this woman at the gym, say, five days a week, it means I was also at the gym five days a week. I am doing exactly the same actions that I'm admiring, yet for some reason it's impressive for her and means nothing for me. She is going above and beyond. I could be doing better.
