Life. Whether you are enjoying it or hating it, it goes on; with or without you, so chin up!

I’ve been practicing keeping focused in September. It’s working, but it’s hard. They are so many things that I am working towards and I know that with God all things are possible!

Lately my days consist of watching Ru Paul’s Drag Race reruns and trying to get to 1000 squats this month (with St. Jude). I haven’t tallied them up yet I’m just trying to do at least 30 a day. Some days I missed and one day I only did 20 but hey, I’m still trying!

No matter how hard things get, I always remember how blessed I am. God has never failed me, and He never will!

The Happiness is Real

This picture represents my happiness. This is the happiest I have been in my whole life and I am so thankful to God for providing me with a husband who loves me and a wonderful, handsome son who is doing well in life!

I had a good talk with him the other day about my need to refocus and get some things back on track. Sometimes, when you give a voice to things, they become more real. I thank God for always having my back no matter how many times I lose focus!

I’ve set things in motion as far as my health and I want to stick with it. I’m challenging myself to do certain things for the month of September. I am keeping a daily record to be accountable. I’ve found that writing lists and keeping notes is something that helps me stay with things.

I’ve got to keep pushing. God has blessed me too much for me to give up now!

My Motivation Comes From…

Daily writing prompt
What motivates you?

I’m going to be honest: Most of my motivation comes from my husband. If it wasn’t for him being my support and understanding the things that I deal with daily, I’m not sure how my life would be right now.

Hubby has pushed me to do more to enjoy life and he’s shown me how to see myself through his eyes, as a beautiful soul. He pushes me to be better every day.

I thank God for bringing this man into my life!

Updates For Monday 8/21

I always start off Mondays thinking of how much needs to be done. Even though I’m retired, I still stress over this. I get up making mental lists of everything that needs to be done at home. I normally get 2 or 3 things done and then just quit; too overwhelming…

Permanent Smile

But as always, I’m thankful to see this day. I’m getting along fine with my new smile. Eating with them takes tons of practice, but as long as you do it slowly, it works.

I went to the gym

I happened to go to the gym the other day. I didn’t get a whole lot done but I still felt good afterwards! I mainly did strength training. That’s what I want to concentrate on going forward.

Depp v Heard

Not too much new and exciting is going on right now. I did watch Depp v Heard on Netflix and thought it was really interesting considering I didn’t watch any of the trial. From day one, I have always believed she lied. Sorry. Not sorry.


I’m getting really tired of playing fish and farmland games and trying to win these free items! I have friends on Facebook who have won items, so I’m trying to hang in there! I will let you know if Temu comes through!

I’m hoping to visit my son this week, so hopefully next Monday, I will have some nice pics to share! Hope all is well with everyone reading. What’s your life update for this Monday?
