What Are You Thankful For?

Published September 12, 2019 by Shay Taree

I can’t exactly remember if I’ve wrote about this before but if I have then I’m sorry. But if not then I hope that you enjoy this post.

The main reason why I chose this topic is because I’m sure that you see everywhere people talking about that you should be thankful for what you have. People also say a lot that you should have a grateful heart.

For me this is something that I’ve been taking seriously for the past 6 months. Every morning I write down 5 things that I’m grateful for. This could be something small or something large. Honestly the list is endless and it’s an amazing practice.

For me I’m thankful for how creative I can be, being able to move my body, my family, my friends, and so many other things. Writing down the things I’m thankful for everyday has really changed my perspective on a lot of things. It’s also helped me to realize that I have a lot to be thankful for and I need to try and stop striving for more when I can even appreciate what I already have.

Overall I definitely suggest you try this practice. You don’t have to write down 5 things you could write only 3 things if you like. I also suggest that you really dig deep about things your thankful for, and as a challenge try to write different things everyday.

So what are you thankful for? If you like you can comment down below something that your thankful for. I would love to read them.

Has Your Hobby Positively Influenced Your Life?

Published September 10, 2019 by Shay Taree

When I saw this question online I figured that this would be a great topic since for me it’s definitely a yes.

Before I literally just watched anime because it was something that I enjoyed but now it’s turned into much more than that. Anime has caused me to branch out and do things that I never thought that I would do.

Because of anime it’s caused me to start a YouTube channel and blog talking about it which is something I didn’t think I would do. Pursuing those things is something that I never thought was possible because I didn’t know what to talk about. But now it’s opened up so many opportunities such as podcasts, meeting some of my favorite voice actors, and of course meeting so many new friends in this community.

It’s also helped me make friends outside of the online community. I didn’t realize that so many of my friends liked anime and now I have other friends to go to cons with.

Another thing that it helped me out with is confidence in not caring what people think about my hobby. Plus it’s also helped me to embrace the other hobbies that I’ve learned to enjoy such as self care, reading, and also other nerdy topics like comic books and video games.

So have any of your hobbies positively influenced your life? Comment your answer and I’m very interested in reading what you all have to say.

Working Out/Exercising!

Published July 23, 2019 by Shay Taree

So I know that I made a post recently about how I want to start working out more and also trying to eat healthy. Well I started doing that slowly but surely.

So far what I’ve been making sure to do is to drink a lot of water. I have a 32oz hydro flask so I’ve been making sure that I drink that entirely at least once a day if not more. As far as food is concerned I’ve been trying my best to lower if not cut out completely sugar. I have a huge sweet tooth so this has been difficult for me but I’m trying.

When it comes to working out so far I’ve been working out 5 days a week for 15-30 mins a day. I work out in the mornings when I get up and once again in the evening once I get home from work. I actually found a workout on Pinterest which is what I’ve been following. I’ll have the picture below!

This is the workout that I mostly do in the evenings and then in the mornings I try to do squats, crunches, jumping jacks, or just some stretching. It really depends on how I’m feeling.

Overall that’s what I’ve really been doing and it’s been working well. This has also really been helping me with anxiety since it gets my extra energy out.

Also I will be sure to keep you guys updated on my progress as well as other things that come to my mind. Plus feel free to comment down below anything that you would like me to discuss.

What Makes You Happy?

Published June 11, 2019 by Shay Taree

I think that one of the things that everyone strives for in life is happiness. I mean everywhere you go there are quotes, influencers, and also people in our lives talking about happiness. So it got me thinking about what makes you happy?

For me when I asked myself that question I realized that what makes me the happiest is when I’m helping people. I like seeing people happy and especially knowing that I put that smile on their face. Whether it’s getting them something or helping them with a problem. It’s just always makes me feel nice.

Then besides that just being around the people that I love so much. So now I want to know what makes you guys happy. Comment down below and let me know.
