Day One: Gloom

I’m pretty upset.

Today is my first day of making my life better.

And the stupid weather has decided to rain on my parade. Literally.


I did kick off today with some delicious oats though. I love my oats.

[recycled photo because my oats always look the same.]

I don’t know if you’ve checked out my wishlist & goals page lately, but I want three tattoos. Yes three. I already have an eyebrow piercing. Hardcore? Basically. I mean how much more hard core can you get than a blonde girl who loves to wear summer dresses and never leaves the house without makeup on. I’m pretty scary.

I mean really. It doesn’t get more frightening than that.

So why am I talking about this? Because I don’t know exactly whenΒ I want those tattoos.

Namaste is going to go on the top of my foot after I graduate yoga school next year. BAM.

The other two? I don’t know.

So today I consulted my “wise mind” about this. I did an exercise where I found my wise mind underneath my sternum, and after calming my body and finding my breath, I started to think about these tattoos. I realized I am not ready for a tattoo yet. I felt my wise mind bunch up and it sent anxiety through me. There was some excitement, but I just felt tense and hesitant. I realized I am not ready for a tattoo. Maybe tomorrow, maybe next month, maybe next year. But right now, I am not ready.

[JSYK: the other two tattoos are my favorite bible verse on my upper thigh & a small quarter-sized ohm symbol on my ankle]

Tomorrow I hope that I can remember to make more oats in a jar. My chocolate almond butter is running low. It would be super sad if I hadn’t already bought another jar. #proactive

Lunch is going to be a smoothie – almond milk because I forgot my almond & coconut milk at Samms house. #iforgeteverything

Today Cassie is coming over so that we can freak out & be weird together. It’s lovely. Guitar hero and super smash Bros are staples. Probably more smoothie too.


I walked 3 peaceful miles listening to the Nutrition Diva podcasts. I also did 20min Zumba express.

Now throughout my days I need to try to consult my wise mind before making decisions.

Have a great day bloggies<3

  2. Cute blog!! For the tattoos I’d say better to wait till you’re sure you’re ready cause they are painful to get removed. But the tattoos you want sound cute!

    Check out my blog, Beautiful Busy Bee. Thanks!

    I hear you on the not-so-awesome weather. It’s raining over here in Oregon…as always. I firmly believe that weather impacts our mood, so it’s hard to plow through crummy days sometimes.

    I love your blog! I just started one of my own, Ordinary Arts, and I would love for you to stop by sometime!


  5. thanks for the sweet comment you left! Glad you liked my post!! Btw I love your blog so much more on wordpress and I think I’m going to make the change myself pretty soon. Are you happy with wordpress so far? Was changing it over difficult?? hmm… trying to figure out all that stuff πŸ™‚

    • I am happy with wordpress. I don’t like that you can’t mess with the fonts and font colors as easily as on blogger and the whole process takes some getting used to. Being able to reply to comments is super amazing though! I like the premade designs and everything. Everything is more detailed and I feel like it is so much more widely used than blogger. Changing over is really easy!!! It imported all of my posts and comments from my old blog which was wonderful. You just use the “import” button right on wordpress (: Remaking the pages was really easy even though those didn’t transfer.
