Happy Tweets Monday

Well, Hello Happy People!

Fancy seeing you here! Shouldn’t you be, I don’t know, at work or celebrating St. Patrick’s Day or something?

I, myself, have spent my day at work, in a green pea coat (gotta stay festive!), in a very calm mood. And I have been told over and over that I should NOT be so calm right now…I am getting married in 4 days! Thinking about it gives me butterflies, but as you may know by now, I take one thing at a time. I have so much happening prior to the wedding that has nothing to do with it, that I need to get through those things and final preparations before it will really hit me!

In order to keep emotions at bay, as well as get me through these last few days of work, I think it’s best for me to continue on with this Happy Tweets routine as I do every week! What do you say? Are you ready to enjoy this Tweet roundup?

Here it goes!

I hope that these Tweets are little messages you can take to heart and carry with you throughout your day. Whether you are needing the motivation to finish a project, make it through a major transition in your life, or just need something to make you smile, I want this to do all of that and so much more.
 
These will do for you what you allow them to.
 
Thanks, and have a Happy Day!

The BIGGEST “F” Word of THEM ALL: FAMILY

So, Tuesday I told you about 2014 being MY Year of the “F” Word. Then, Wednesday, I delved into “F” Word #1, and the meaning of it’s placement in my life in 2014. Today, saunter with me to the land of “F” Word #2: Family.

Disclaimer: As mentioned in my first post on the subject, my “F” Words are not listed in terms of relevance to me, and neither will they be explained in any particular order.

As I make this journey through 2014 – as well as every year hereafter – I crave support. Physical support in a shoulder to lean on, a long embrace, someone to help me stretch out after a long workout. Mental support in pushing me verbally towards my goals and dreams, reminding me that I am my only roadblock on my journey to success. Emotional support in picking me up when I fall (obviously not literally), listening when I need to vent. I am sure the list of ways someone can support another reaches around the globe and back!

But, I also feel a necessary component to my living a fulfilled 2014 (and life) is to give. Give of my time, my care, my love.

And who better to give and receive support from than family? My immediate family is awesome, so is my extended family, made up of relatives as well as my very nearest and dearest friends.

To infinity and beyond, I will prioritize my family. I will continue to attend my brother’s sporting events and edit his school papers. I will work out with my mom and my sister (and anyone else who wants to join us!), work with them on reaching all of our individual goals, and strengthen my relationships with them that have strained a bit over this transition period of my life. I will always talk sports with dad, joke around with him, poke fun at him, and ask for advice. He is the BEST advice giver. I can’t wait to settle into married life with my best friend, Timmykins (not settle DOWN. This girl can’t be tamed!), and discover what adventures are in store for us. I will also make myself more available to my friends that mean so much, to talk, to eat, or just to hang out in our PJs.

As nearly passed-over above, I feel that some of my relationships have become a little strained in the past year. I can wholeheartedly stand behind the fact that my last year of transitions (getting engaged, moving out of my parents’ home and into a rental of my own, becoming an independent individual, and beginning to prioritize myself) has really taken a toll on these relationships. Oh, and the whole saving money thing that goes along with the wedding (goodbye happy hours at 54th Street, hello nights in…EVERY night in). With the wedding nearly upon us, the house on it’s way to being completely set up, and the potential of some time freeing up, I am ready to be a people person again.

I just hope everyone else is ready for me to be a people person again 🙂

Happy Tweets Monday

Good lordy! Has it already been over a week since my last post? When short spurts of time off from my blog happen accidentally, I usually feel a pang of regret…like I have let you all down.

But I want you to know that this time I am HAPPY I took those days off. And that is what this blog is about, right? Happiness and the journey of life in the state of happiness?

To tell you the truth, work has been kicking my butt lately, and by the time I get home from work or one of my brother’s soccer games, I am spent. It’s not that I take the time to relax. I edit some pictures or video, and pass out quite early.

I haven’t even had time for working out…GASP!

After a weekend abundant in friendship and happiness – and a quick trip to the grocery last evening for some healthy foods to start this week off right – I think it is high time for some Happy Tweets for this fine Monday! Don’t you?

Enjoy!
