TAKING STOCK (8)

| LIFE

 

Hey babes!!! 🙂

 

I trust that all of you are doing well. As you know, from time to time I often do a taking stock blog post (I have been for the past two years now), and it is the perfect way for me to reflect, look back, appreciate, take in, be grateful for everything that I have and am going through at the time. I figured, seeing as the last Taking Stock blog post was in November 2017 (if you want to see it click HERE).  This will be the FIRST Taking Stock for 2018 (believe me I’m so shocked at this because I could’ve sworn that I did one earlier on in the year), for the first quarter of the year.

 

Lets get started!!

 

Making: Plans for a new business venture I’ll be getting into this year. It’s slow and steady, but primarily focuses on women empowerment and standing up for women as women (It’s coming! All will be revealed soon!). <3

Cooking: Up some ideas of what to by a good friend of mine for his birthday.  I haven’t gotten far with the ideas. Got nada!

 

Drinking: Sparkling water. My new FAVOURITE beverage. I’m a HUGE fan! I can go through 4 litres of these in a day. 

Reading: Two amazing Books. A Year of Miracles Daily Devotions & A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson (both of them). AMAZING books, that are renewing my faith in love, in me, God, and people in general. It’s really opening up my eyes to so much!

Wanting: A good reason not to give up on all the plans I have. I’m struggling to find inspiration to keep going at the moment. 

Looking: for a good design for my next hair cut. Oh if you didn’t know, I’ve cut my hair! You must have seen it a few blog posts back im sure! 

Playing: “Loved By You”by Kirby. OMG! Finding such great music lately, I just can’t keep up anymore. I find at least 4 new artists (to me),  each week. It’s crazy! However I’m loving every minute of it <3

Wasting:  valuable time procrastinating. This is my life. Nothing new here.

 

Wishing: to make peace with the fact that God is in control of my life. Often I get so upset with myself when things do not go my way. Lately  I find myself impatient and restless at the fact that things are not happening fast enough, that I forget what my mother has always taught me: In God’s time.

Enjoying: Judge Judy!!! LOL, I don’t want to lie to you, but Judge Judy is my guilty pleasure! When I want to watch something that I KNOW will make me laugh, and doesn’t require me to think much, especially when I want an hour or two just to unwind, JUDGE JUDY is my THING!!! My sister got me into it! Been hooked since! 

Waiting: For the end of the month liikkeeeee………

Liking: exeprimenting around with my clothes lately. We’ve gone into autumn and I’m playing around with a lot of my jerseys, jersey sweater dresses (which I’m loving!), coats, turtle necks and so on, got me falling in love with my wardrobe again! My favourite season is coming! WINTER!!! <3 

Wondering: If my God hears some of my  deepest, and most quiet prayers. I hope He does. 

Loving: My new Power Bank that I recently got from the brand RED- E! This thing is amazing!!! I can get mostly 4 charges in before it goes dead. It’s amazing and the best investment I’ve made for my phone. Now I never worry about my phone dying on me while I’m out, because i carry this thing with me EVERYWHERE!

 

Hoping: for things to work out with some medical issues that I’m having, its been stressing me for the past two months. 

Needing: …sleep. My sleeping patterns lately are a mess. Slept at 1am, and now I’m feeling it. 

Smelling: My perfume. Roberto Cavalli something something…!  lol!!

Wearing: White fleece jersey and boots.

Knowing: That time not only heals all wounds, but changes everything too. 

Thinking: about my next haircut appointment…. (seems to be taking over all my thoughts lately).

Feeling: Tired. From the lack of sleep. I’m just physically tired.

Opening: up my mind to knowing that it takes huge risk taking in order to yield results. I’ve always been overcome by my fear. Fear of what people will think, will it work out, that I always stand back from making my goals achievable. Now I know that taking the risk is the only way to know whether anything will work or not.

Giggling: I wish. Not even. lol
