Something Inspiring!

Published July 28, 2019 by Shay Taree

As I’m writing this I’m sitting in bed watching Hasan Minhaj’s series on Netflix which is really funny by the way. So check it out if you haven’t yet.

But usually for me Sundays are spent kind of relaxing and just trying to get ready for the week ahead. Usually these means doing laundry, editing my video for Monday, just doing whatever I want to do.

Also lately I’ve been wanting to spend my Sunday’s doing something that inspirational for me. That could be reading a book about self-improving or a topic that interesting to me. Sometimes it watching something inspirational on YouTube. For me it’s just anything that can get my creative juices flowing.

For me today that was coming across a blog post talking about being aligned with your own energy and how to know when you are and when you aren’t. At first I wasn’t sure what I was going to get out of it but while reading it I realized just how much I could actually relate.

I realized that I do/did a lot of self sabotaging when it comes to the things I want in my life. I self doubt sometimes, I compare my success to others, and I felt lost. But I then realized that there are some thing that do where I am aligned and I had to think about those moments and why they happen.

I greatly recommend you check out this blog post and I will link it down below. Sometimes reading something inspiring can get the ball rolling on something you’ve always wanted to do or something that you want to try.

So try and use today to inspire yourself and maybe inspire someone else. Now go out and have a great Sunday everyone! Also I will have a new video out tomorrow so be sure to check it out!

2nd Channel Update!

Published July 26, 2019 by Shay Taree

So about a month ago I decided to start a 2nd channel where I talk about things like positivity and just overall motivational topics. But I’ve decided to at this time put that channel on hold.

What I plan to do instead is upload my motivational Monday videos onto my anime channel and try and relate it to anime topics. Also to do some lifestyle video but also relate it to anime. The reason why I plan to do this is because I know that many of us get inspired by anime or other nerdy genres and I want to explore this more.

But remember that I still do plan to do more reviews since I still enjoy watching anime and reading manga. I can’t wait to continue on this journey with everyone. Also I do plan to bring my 2nd channel back but I’m figuring out what exactly I plan to do with it.

Feel free to leave your ideas below or and ideas you would like to see on my anime channel!

Following Your Purpose!

Published July 25, 2019 by Shay Taree

So I know that this past weekend I had wrote a tweet talking about following my path and feeling like something was missing. Well let me explain just a little bit more.

Since I was a kid I’ve always like reading and watching the stories of people who are now famous. Like how they got there, their hardships, and finally making it. I’ve always thought my purpose was doing entertainment since I could never see myself working a typical 9-5 job. Sitting at a desk just didn’t seem to suit me and daydreaming of having my name in lights and people knowing my name always filled my head.

Now as an adult I still have those dreams. So when I watch stuff on tv or YouTube of my favorite actors/actress I start to panic thinking that something is missing and that I’m doing something wrong. It’s a weird feeling but all I can say is that it feels like something is calling my name and that I’m meant for something greater.

I guess that may be one of the reasons why I got involved with YouTube and blogging since it allows me to be creative and express myself. Also yes I do work a regular job and while I enjoy it I do know that it’s something I’m not meant to do forever.

This is what lead me to make that tweet. It was a way of telling myself that I would focus on my dreams more and also fulfill them. So here is to the future and following your dreams!

So please everyone that is out there be sure to follow your dreams no matter what people 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.

Panic Attacks & Trying To Get Healthy!

Published July 9, 2019 by Shay Taree

As I’m writing this I am so so tired. The night before I slept horrible due to having a panic attack. If any of y’all have had a panic attack before they are horrible and even after it’s over (at least for me) I can feel the effects for hours after. Mostly it’s just the fear of having another one. But I’m blessed that I got through it.

One thing though that I’m trying to focus on is trying to get healthier. I want to start working out more, drinking more water, and also eating healthier. I can drink more water and working out I can work on. But the eating healthier part is what’s hard for me. I love sweets a lot and I love cheese. So I’m trying to figure out the best way to go about these things.

For starters I plan to start working out in the mornings before work for maybe like 10-15 mins and also eating a healthier breakfast. I don’t really like oatmeal but I’m going to try and start eating it. My biggest problem is lunch and dinner. Typically I don’t eat lunch and when it comes to dinner my family orders out a lot.

So I want to know for those of you who have gone through this or currently are do y’all have any advice. Also do y’all have any healthy recipes that you could recommend. Preferably for lunch or dinner. I mean I can eat salads but that may get old really fast. So comment those down below and to be honest I’m terrible in the kitchen so easy recipes would be awesome.

But y’all have a great day and please remember that you are you for a reason!
