One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever heard is “Be quick to listen and slow to speak.”
It seriously makes so much sense. I was on Facebook this morning and came across
this photo. I love this because this is something that can really help me. At times I can
be pretty quick to talk and slow to listen. I have to constantly remind myself to always,
always listen well. I also have a small little habit of “word vomit”, which is not really
in my favor. You know, those thoughts that pop into your head and you for some reason
just absolutely can not hold them in? Yeah, those. So, I came across this photo!
This really spoke to me and I want to read it a few times and keep it in my head.
I want to remember these questions as I go through my day and as I speak my
mind to others. Don’t just go spitting out any words that your brain crosses.
HAPPY THINKING 🙂
Topic of the day! Okay, relationships can be a lot of fun! But don’t let hollywood fool you.. a good, healthy, and stable relationship is a lot of hard work. I can promise you right now it will never be easy.
I would have to say the two top things that YOU have to do, not you as a couple, but you as an individual who is a part of the relationship, have to do to survive your relationship are as follows:
Ok, so my latest obsession is curly hair!
Anyways, I need new extensions and my
roots aren’t the greatest, but seriously when
you curl your hair none of that matters it just looks good!
Like, ok it takes me a little bit longer to
do because I have to straighten all of the
hair, and then go through and curl it.
But once it’s straight, the curling really
doesn’t take that long. And I really don’t
mind doing it as long as I have the time!
Because it just looks so cute!!!
I was never really one to curl my hair
it was always just down and straight.
But seriously, you guys curls are so
pretty and they are my new fave look!
If you have your “typical hairstyle” you always
wear, I suggest branching out and trying something
new! Who knows, you may just fall in love with it!
It may be the perfect new look for you this summer!!
HAPPY CURLING!! ❤
I have been so busy lately, I have been neglecting my blog pretty badly! I move into my new apartment in about 12 days! AHH!! I could not be more excited about this! Life is going to be a lot different in many ways, but in some very good ways! I am going to get to live comfortably and peacefully with my amazingly supportive other half and all our nice things! Some people say it’s not rational to be living in such a nice place while in college, but honestly with the mindset my boyfriend and I have, we wouldn’t settle for anything less at this point. We both have a go getter attitude and when we want something we get it. I read in the book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, that one aspect to the difference between a “rich mindset” and a “poor mindset” is your reaction to seeing something you really want. Thinking with a “poor mindset”, you see something you really want but shrug and walk away thinking you simply cannot afford it. Having a “rich mindset”, you see something you really want and you think long and hard and say, “HOW can I afford this?” You don’t have to buy everything you want that you see, most definitely not your life would become way too cluttered, however this mindset difference, sets you apart from others. It can make you very successful. This is why we are going to live in a very nice apartment with the given amenities we like! Given, we may sometimes have to eat an inexpensive meal or occasionally skip out on our daily caribou coffee to save money for rent at the end of the month, but that’s sacrifice. You weigh your opinions. You can pick up extra hours, get a second job. There are many ways to get what you want, you just have to have the right attitude!
I also start school up again soon! I’m going to be taking one online class this summer while I settle into our new place and work a bunch of hours to save money for fall and then I’m going to throw myself into school and get my marketing degree. I recently in my life chose to switch majors for college, so instead of being three years in, I’m really only a year in with the credits that count towards my new major. This is definitely fine though, because I would rather spend a couple extra years in college to do what I really want to do than to get a degree I found out I’m really not interested in!
I start my job at the new store June 1st!!! I’m kind of nervous… I’ve been told my new team is a VERY head strong team. For anyone who knows me, I have a pretty soft and sensitive personality. So I’m sort of wondering how this is going to all go down. Honestly, if it isn’t the store for me, there are other ones in the mall. I also have the qualifications to work at a nursing home or hospital for quite a better pay than I would make in retail, so I have many options. Even though that’s not my pursuit anymore it can sure pay the bills! 🙂
Hope you all had an amazing week and ENJOY THE WEEKEND and make sure to spoil your momma on Sunday!!! 🙂
Happy Mother;s Day Weekend!
