Midweek Inspiration: September #4

Hey guys! First off, I want to apologize for my lack of updates! Good news is I'm finally well (thank God!) and I can work on my blog! Being sick is not fun and it's definitely not cute! If you're currently ill, I'm sending you a massive, sloppy hug cause I feel ya and I hope you feel better soon! <3

Anyway, I know all I've been posting lately are these midweek inspiration posts but I'm working on other stuff that I think you guys are gonna like so stay tuned for that!

Since I've been sick this past week, I found myself on Twitter a lot. I discovered an account (@Animal_Mashups) that brought so many smiles to my face despite my congestion and annoying cough. Here are some of my favorites from there!

Yet again, I have found myself uncontrollably smiling at another one of Bribry's videos. It's his most recent one where he's joined with his fiancĂ©e and they send out a message to their future children. I think it's the sweetest thing and I'm completely smitten by their relationship! <3

Sara Bareilles' song 'Brave' has also been keeping me happy this week! It's an upbeat song with a positive message and I love getting ready to it.

I'll leave you guys with some random animal pictures I came across that made my heart scream "awww!".

I hope you all enjoyed this midweek inspiration series this month and if you'd like to see more next month, let me know in the comments below! Wishing you all a fantastic weekend ahead! :)

Midweek Inspiration: September #3

I'm not gonna lie, I've had a pretty rough week, guys. My lack of sleep and exhaustion have pretty much killed my immune system and consequently, here I am finding myself sick again. However, a couple of things brought smiles to my face this past week and somehow made me feel less awful. I'll be sharing some of them with you today!

I came across this quote a few days ago and it's easily one of my favorites, by far. It has helped me change my perspective on life. I'm the kind of person that doesn't like to be interrupted, especially when I'm working on a particular project. There are multiple instances where I  have shrugged off people that ask for my help and it's honestly something that I'm not very proud of! I probably did this so frequently (and unconsciously) to an extent where it already became a habit.  Recently, however, whenever I'm presented with an opportunity to help someone and I try to shrug it off, this quote comes to my mind and I act otherwise. It's still a work in progress but it's a rewarding feeling, I can assure you that! :)

While we're on the topic of helping others out, here's a video I stumbled upon that made my heart melt:

Since we're already talking about melting hearts, can we just...

Tell me that did not make you smile even just a little!! I think that animals are the best stress relievers! 

Finally, I have something to share with you all and it's probably one of my greatest life accomplishments and easily, the highlight of my week (if not, my entire existence).

It's probably not a big deal to anyone, but I built my first piece of furniture! If there's one thing that can make you feel utterly incompetent, it's the Ikea manuals. I cannot tell you how many times I was so close to being done and giving up BUT I pushed through, guys. 5 hours and many splinters later, I can finally say I accomplished something I never would have thought I could.

Push your limits, believe in yourselves.

Midweek Inspiration: September #2

Yay, it's Wednesday! I can already smell the weekend! I hope you all are having a fantastic week, nonetheless! For this week's inspiration, I have a ton of quotes for you guys. Inspiration can come in any form, we just need to keep our eyes open long enough to be inspired by the things around us. I was blessed enough to receive a ton of inspiration this week from different people, words, and even food! Hopefully, this post inspires at least one of you! :)

Enjoy the rest of the week guys and I hope you all have an amazing weekend! Mine will probably consist of a lot of sleeping, eating and internet (gotta be social, right!?).

What I Loved in August!

Alright, I'm not even going to talk about how fast this month went by because this whole entire year just seems like it wants to breeze past us so let's just let it be! However, what I will be talking about today is some of the things I enjoyed this month, the ones I can remember at least because honestly, this month was such a blur to me.

Louis Cole's Vlogs (AKA FunForLouis)

If I could trade places with anyone at this point in my life, it would be this guy! I've really gotten into watching Louis' vlogs because they give me a break from my sedentary life. He puts up daily videos and you would think that you'd get bored watching one person every single day but he goes on tons of adventures, he makes it impossible. If you haven't heard of his channel before, I highly recommend you check it out! He's actually one of the people who inspires me to, someday, travel the world! :)

Midweek Inspiration: September #1

There's always that one point in our life where we question why the weekend is not five days and the weekdays just two, or if you're like me, you question this every single day. Since, sadly, we can't do anything about that, we all need that little pick me up when we're halfway through the week, over with the Monday blues but not quite close to yelling TGIF on the top of our lungs (or is it just me that does that...?). I've decided to start this series on my blog for some midweek inspiration as a little pick me up for whoever needs one! I'll be posting random things like songs, videos and pictures that have inspired me to push through the week. I hope you all are as excited as I am about this! <3

Stay strong guys, the weekend's almost here!
