“Today be thankful and think how rich you are. Your family is priceless, your time is gold, and you health is wealth.”

Thankful Thursday Week 7 is here! It was a busy yet wonderful week, especially because I got to end it with a day spent with family! Work was crazy, the weather was all over the place, and my mind has been cluttered with thoughts for far too long. I started focusing on getting my life organized, but then life got in the way. Hopefully I can make more progress next week. I am sick of feeling so disorganized and lost.

Check out last week’s Thankful Thursday HERE!

P.S. I am sorry for these posts being all over the place sometimes. I write each day at a different time (the morning after) so my writing style can vary depending on the mood I am in. So I apologize if this causes any confusion or if it is irritating in any way. But this is me. <3

Thankful Thursday Week 7

Monday, May 8th, 2017

Today I am thankful for the printer. I started planning out what I want in all of my new organization binders. In the end I will have 3 different binders: My Life Binder, My Dreaming With Love Binder, and My Money Binder. The printer came in handy today as I was printing out some of the different papers I want in my binders. I LOVE organizing my life in this way and I am SO EXCITED to have everything the way I want it. I will definitely keep you updated as my binders come together!

Lesson Learned: If you want to do something for yourself or in your life at all, just do it. Stop waiting for tomorrow or “next week” and just do it now. That is the only way you will get started and future you will thank you. One of the biggest regrets many people have in their life is that they wish they would’ve started sooner. This applies to so many things so whatever it is in your life right now that you want to start… JUST DO IT! Today.

Today I am thankful for early nights. For a lot of people sleep is the first thing that gets sacrificed on a busy day. Not for me. I LOVE sleep. Always have, Always will.

I had an extremely busy day at work today so as a result, I was super tired. After dinner I sat down on the couch with my boyfriend and almost instantly fell asleep (and started drooling haha).

Soon after, I dragged myself into bed and slept soundly throughout the night. It felt great. I woke up refreshed and ready to take on Wednesday!

Lesson Learned: I’ve talked about this before, but we all need to stop putting our health on the back burner. If you’re tired that is your body telling you something so get some sleep. Our mental and physical health is so important in order to have a productive day and life!

Today I am thankful for grocery shopping day. To be completely honest, I am ALWAYS thankful for grocery shopping day. I love the feeling of having full cupboards, a full fridge, and a full freezer. The endless options of food choices. It’s the best!

My bank account suffers, but my tummy is happy.

Happy Tummy = Happy Amanda

Lesson Learned: Sometimes it’s the little things in life that make us happy and that is okay. Enjoy every small and big moment, every single day.

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

Today I am thankful for lunch breaks. I had such a stressful and busy day at work. All morning I was looking forward to my lunch break.

I went home, ate my lunch, and cuddled with my cats. It was a short period of time, but it was perfect and everything I needed today.

Lesson Learned: It is really important to live in the moment and not spend your life waiting. Waiting for the weekend, waiting for the summer, waiting for school to be over, etc. Stop waiting and make the most of the present.

However we aren’t perfect and once in a while it is okay to “wait”. Sometimes the present situation isn’t enjoyable or ideal. Do your best to make it as positive as possible, but to help you get through it remind yourself that it won’t last forever.

Friday, May 12th, 2017

Today I am thankful for Fridays. At the same time I’m not though. Friday is my busiest day at work and this week has been especially busy (next week will be as well). I’ve had to stay late multiple days this week and even extra long today.

Despite all of that, Friday means I don’t have to do this tomorrow and I get to sleep in. That makes me SO happy especially after the kind of week I had.

Lesson Learned: Even if there is a lot of bad in your day, find the good in it and focus on that. Sometimes it much more obvious than others, but it is always there.

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

Today I am thankful for another day. I had a really bad day today and was in a bad mood for no particular reason. It was just one of those days and I’m thankful it is over.

Lesson Learned: I know there were things to be thankful for today, but honestly I’m more thankful that the day is over. And that’s okay. Sometimes we all have days like that. The important thing is to forget about it and start fresh the next day.

Today I am thankful for my mommy. I didn’t have to even think about what I was thankful for today because it’s Mother’s Day! I hope you all had a Happy Mother’s Day!

Today I spent the day with my family and it was so wonderful to see them all again. I moved 4 hours away from them at the age of 17 for college. I now live 45 minutes away and am so appreciative of every time I get to see them, even if it is only for a short time.

Lesson Learned: Spend time with your family as often as you can. Cherish that time because it won’t always be an option. Let your family know how much you love and appreciate them! You don’t need to do this with gifts, but just with your presence and your love. You’ll surely regret it if you don’t.

What were you thankful for this week?
