Right now…

Obsessing over… These shoes I saw on the Skunkboy Blog. I need these shoes to be on my feet.
Anticipating… Fall/winter. I can’t wait. I think about it a lot. It’s my favorite. I just love the weather and the clothes and the food… oh… so excited for the Fall season.
Working on…  just being more in the moments. I have done so much changing especially in this last year. I won’t go into a lot of detail right now, but I have been working on myself, and  my relationships with people and I can honestly say that as of right now, I am in a good place and I can tell that all the inner work I have been doing is paying off. 
Watching… Not watching anything at the moment. I am still waiting for my new roommate to come home so we can get cable hooked up! I usually don’t watch tv but if my roommate is going to hook it up and I have someone to split the cost I guess I will watch more tv. I am pretty excited that all my favorite shows are about to start airing again!! New Girl, The Office, Modern Family, Parks and Rec.
Thinking about… this new diet I am going to start Monday. I am not trying to really lose weight but I just want to be healthier so I am going to try this and go to the gym on a more regular basis… I am excited/dreading this! haha… I am pretty excited about actually buying groceries and saving money on that instead of eating out and eating a lot of junk food. I can tell a difference of when I eat healthy vs non healthy and it really sucks the first few days…but then it gets better. I have a motivational partner though so that should help!! More to come on that later! 😉
Reading…  I am waiting on this book to come in from the library.
Listening to… Pandora of course.  I have 3 favorite stations on Pandora.  My She and Him Radio, a Country mix of 90’s and today, and a Christian station.  Right now, I am listening to the She and Him radio and  I am listening to “Ghost” by Ingrid Michaelson.
Eating… A pop-tart and coffee.. haha.. I know! This is why I am going to try to eat healthier!
Wishing… that my new house would actually be a little more normal and that my new roommate would come home so we could get things started.  I moved at the beginning of the month but you should see it. I had to move things over because my apartment lease was up…but they weren’t quite finished with renovations yet so I officially was able to move into my room this last week but things are still not unpacked and the rest of the house is pretty bare until my roommate comes back from Texas (where she is from recuperating from surgery). I am just excited to get things to normal soon!

Thoughts Based on a Quote

“You won’t get what you don’t ask for. You can change your mind. And you don’t have to settle for fine.” –via

I saw this quote today and I loved it.

Each one of these sentences are so true:

You won’t get what you don’t ask for. – Things never just fall in your lap. I mean they can, but that’s rare right? I have this problem of not asking for things I want. I don’t really know exactly why I don’t ask for things. Maybe for fear of not being deserving enough. Maybe, sometimes its a fear of getting my hopes up and sometimes I think it’s a fear of actually getting what I want!

You can change your mind. –I think these little 5 words should be my mantra. I have the worst problem with making any kind of decision. I can’t make up mind, because everything seems so permanent. (hello….commitment phobe!) Does it have to be though??? No. not really. I can change my mind. If I make a decision and it doesn’t work I can change my mind and go on a different route. Nothing is really permanent. Now, if I got married, of course… I would hope that I or my spouse wouldn’t just change our minds but you know, in the day-to-day decisions that is a good mantra I think. Try new things. Worst case scenario – I can change my mind! Even if it does end badly, I learned my lesson and on to the next thing.

You don’t have to settle for fine – I hate settling, and maybe that’s why I can never make up my mind. I debate about if my decisions are settling or what I really should do. Maybe, we know deep down and we just have to trust this….intution. If you feel stuck in rut, change something and don’t settle. Again, it’s that fear thing that I believe makes most people settle.

So, I realized that all three of those sentences I related to fear. Wow… maybe I should work on being more brave!

How do you become a  brave person?
