As you read this post, Ming and I are off celebrating his birthday in the form of a surprise staycation, whee! BLESSED BIRTHDAY TO THE BESTEST BESTIEST BESTIE IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD!!! I must tell you guys – the whole surprise was painstakingly planned by yours truly, and even though the staycation has begun, the birthday boy is still clueless as to what I have up my sleeve this special day. How exciting! Anyways. June. Another month has just passed us by, and with that, the next installment of The Daily Strength – A Facebook Status A Day.
Before that – have you joined my 4th Blog Anniversary Giveaway yet? Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Liner and related goodies to be won! Join up, join up! No reason not to… it’s open to everybadeh! :)
Alrighty. Well, June was pretty dramatic and painful (literally!) for me. It was all about:
- having doubts about my current circumstances,
- constantly reminding myself to trust in the Universe’s plan for me,
- telling myself to just keep on going after what I want, and
- trying to recognise that things aren’t always as bad as I imagine them to be.
Over the past months, I’ve gotten into the habit of making mindful choices; I’m pleased June went pretty well in that aspect.
Thing is, going through the daily grind has got me wondering if this is the kind of life I want to lead, for the rest of my existence. Perhaps I would be happier doing something else. Perhaps the time has come for change. Perhaps I need to turn the page and write a new chapter.
Yet, I wonder if these thoughts are a result of me taking things for granted, not recognising that there are many others out there struggling to simply survive, that what I have now, they yearn to achieve. At the same time, I know I am exactly where I need to be, that the Universe’s plan for me is far greater than I can ever imagine.
Mid-month, I suffered some injuries. I won’t deny that I’d been in a lot of pain. 3 weeks have passed since the impact and I’m happy to report that I’m recovering well. The last weeks of June saw me working 12 consecutive days in the office (weekend nights are killers!). I refused to let my injuries or those long working hours throw my life off-balance; I managed to stick to healthful choices and ran my daily 5K regardless. That, I am very proud of. Remember, it’s all about forming good, lifelong habits. Your situations change; make sure your good habits don’t.
After a traumatic month, this mini vacation sure is a well-deserved one! ;)
