Don’t forget to put yourself first sometimes. It’s easy to get caught up in all of the negative moments in life, but if you actually look around, you might realize that everything is actually pretty freaking awesome.

1. Swimming in a pool after it rains.

After a cold, humid day, the last thing anyone would want to do is take a dip in the pool. But it’s actually the perfect time to do so. It’s like a giant hot tub. There’s no wind, complete silence, and pure happiness.

2. Making a stranger laugh.

We’ve all been there — going to a friend’s house, party, or social event where you know only one or two people. That “awkward” feeling sets in — until you crack just one good joke, and all of a sudden everyone is talking like friends.

3. Making silly faces at children.

I get that we all have busy lives, and sometimes don’t realize cute moments waiting to happen. If I’m having a bad day, smiling at a little kid always makes it better. Their reaction is what makes it worth it. They’ll giggle and smile, and it makes you realize that whatever you’re worried about, isn’t as daunting as you thought it was.

4. A warm shower on a winter day.

Chills, shivers, and goosebumps all seem to fade away when you take that first step into a comforting blanket of warmth. It’s as if nothing else matters for a minute or two. Pure euphoria, I’d say.

5. Getting over a bad cold.

You don’t realize how awesome it is to breathe out of your nose until you’re a stuffy mess, curled up in bed, and covered in tissues. You realize that you shouldn’t take little things like your health for granted, because some people never get over that “sick” feeling.

6. Falling into a deep sleep after a long day.

This one is pretty self-explanatory. Everything feels so cozy and warm, as if you’re sleeping in your bed for the first time. There’s no restless thoughts, and you’re not too hot or cold. Even your dreams seem to be relaxing.

7. Finding what you need at the perfect moment.

Like that time when you needed a tampon, and there was one sitting on the sink at school. Or when you found a hair tie on the floor right before gym. (Sounds gross, but people get desperate. Can’t risk that bad grade.) It’s that pure second of bliss, almost like some fairy god-parent just granted you exactly what you had been asking for.

8. Having an amazing makeup day.

It seems like you’re makeup couldn’t have glided on more flawlessly. The under-eye circles seemed to have disappeared, almost like you’re glowing. That one moment when you can look in the mirror and don’t have to wince at what you see. (Even though you shouldn’t in the first place.)

9. Actually finishing a book (and enjoying it).

Let’s face it — we don’t always take the time to educate ourselves a little by reading a good book. But when we do, isn’t it a great feeling to know it’s yet another thing to check of our seemingly-endless bucket list?

10. Finishing a hard workout.

Whether it was intentional or not, you finished it. That means you’re getting stronger — congratulations! Not everyone can say they did what you do. It’s good to feel like you’re progressing when it comes to your health.

Dreading This Day All About Love

Valentines day blues

I have never enjoyed Valentine's Day.

Even if when I was in a relationship it was just an awkward day of "hey I love you, give me gifts and lets make out." But this year, I am just not feeling this thing at all. Since the relationship ended last June I have just been dreading the time when February came, because you know that on the 14th you are going to see all these love post and all us singles are like "welp this is just not my day.", and honestly you feel defeated. I personally asked other singles friends (like the three I have) if they wanted to come and watch Netflix with me and dread the day, but sadly they either had school or work. So here is my plan of getting though this day of love:

NETFLIX

Yes Netflix how else am I supposed to get through this day? Usually I have Greys Anatomy playing all the time but that has love in it, and I am not in the mood for that. My plan is to watch all the crime shows I can because watching TV crime series or documentary about serial killers just seems perfect for the 14th.

SLEEP

Yes sleeping. I don't have anywhere I need to be why not catch up on some zzz's

CHOCOLATE

Yes I am going to eat my feelings with chocolate because why not? if I could I would get a giant slice of cake and live off that on the 14th but sadly I am stuck with the normal Heresy's chocolate and Reeses which will do their job.

CATS

me :)

This is my wonderful cat Kimber and she will be my partner in crime on the 14th. She will sleep, snuggle, cuddle, all day with me because I need that moral support of my fluffy cat.

BOOKS

If I am able to fit reading a book into my schedule of everything listed above then reading will go into that open spot. I always loved reading but with school it is hard to find the time to read for enjoyment. so this day will be the perfect day.


This is my plan for the 14th of February and hopefully this will help me get though this dreadful day. And if you are also single try this out :)
