Hey, It's Ok

With Amber from Airing My Dirty Laundry
That, after my trip out East, I understand why so many people love Canada's East Coast!! It's beautiful and the people are so friendly!!

To be sad that June is almost over. Summer has barely started and I feel like it's so close to being over. 

That I saw Ocean's 8 on the weekend. I haven't seen any of the Ocean's movies, so I may have missed out on some of the backstory, but I really enjoyed the movie!!

To be excited that Big Brother starts this week!! I have found the past several seasons of BB US to be kind of boring and the cast to be repulsive. Here's hoping this season and cast are a lot better, decent, and entertaining. 

That I am having day dreams bout night things in the middle of the afternoon (name that tune).

Somebody Else

It has been a minute or two since I have posted!! I have been busy traveling- both for work and for pleasure- and just enjoying life. I'm excited that Summer has officially started!! I have spent a lot of time outside, and at the beach. 

Right now, life is great and I am incredibly happy. I feel that this upcoming week will be a bit of a challenge for me...I have some fun things planned and will be spending time with friends, but this week will have it's challenges. 

I cam across this quote last month and I have made it my mantra, When I struggle or am having a bad day, I switch my focus to helping or doing something nice for someone else. It has ranged from writing a note to someone and telling them they are doing an awesome job to asking a co-worker what their biggest task/struggle/issue is and asking how I can help or if I can take the task off their plate and do it for them. These gestures, no matter how small, will make the other person feel happy, which in turns makes me feel better.

Being able to take that negative situation/space that I am in and then using my energy to help someone else, has the ability to really turn my day around.

Hey, It's Ok!

With Amber from Airing My Dirty Laundry

To think Kaela deserved to win Big Brother Canada, instead of Parras. Kaela was a boss all season and owned that game. The jury was bitter...but they also passed on every opportunity they had to evict her...so that was really on them. 

That I am unprepared for my trip out East in less than two weeks!! I have flights booked and that's about it! Also, here's hoping WestJet doesn't go on strike.

To have tried Rock Burger for the first time on the weekend!! It was AMAZING!! Can't wait to go back!! I had the Buffalo Wing Dipper, and the Cheesecake burger...SO GOOD!!! This is a must try if you ever find yourself in Niagara Falls, NY.

That I stocked up on Peanut Butter Crunch Bars when I was in the US. These are so good and, sadly, not available in Canada.

To have discovered that Canada and the US have a tug of war every year on the Rainbow Bridge, at the international boarded. Canada won. Again.

People With Purpose...A Positive Life

Last week was a week of frustration, heartache, and a LOT of negativity. I tired my best to not let things get to me, to not take things personally, to rise about the negative. I pulled knives out of my back, ignored the gossip, tried to move forward.

I have always felt, believed, and acted like I have no time for drama. I can't be bothered. My life is busy. I have other things to focus on. This quote resonates with me: 

There are so many things- big and small- that I am focused on accomplishing. I thrive on creativity. My main focus in life is being happy and seeing the good in life. When there is "drama", I remove myself from the situation...I walk away, I don't engage, and-at times- put measures in place so I can't be drawn back into the situation. 

I'm ready to put last week behind me and move forward. 

I'm ready to refocus on my goals, and am committed to living a positive life. 

And it's ok if some people, situations, and drama aren't part of that.
