Not everyone wakes up with the energy and zeal to take over the world. Sometimes I just want to crawl back to my bed, get under my blanket and sleep like I’ve got nothing to lose!!! But then I remember that adulting is soup and I’m a fork and the damn bills won’t pay themselves!!! Here is to us; one hell of a Monday morning pep talk 😊♥️
“I thought I could resist the rat race. I thought: ‘I’m a unique guy. I like to mix things up.’ So I fought it for a long time. I stayed up past my bedtime. I listened to music really loud in the morning. I rode my bike to work. I always tried to find new places for lunch. I joined a softball team. I went to concerts on weeknights. But I just got tired. I ended up staying later at the office. And I fell into a rhythm: come home, watch TV, and go to sleep. I’m not sure I can do this for the next forty years. I just miss waking up and not knowing what’s going to happen. It’s never explicitly said to you that you need to live on your own, and have a good life, and meet someone, and have kids, and have those kids be more successful than you are. But you feel the pressure all the time. You feel it every time someone asks how your job is going. Right now everyone in this park is taking a break from the thing they have to get back to. It’s comforting in a way. There’s a sense of solidarity in it. We’re all feeling the same obligation.”

I actually curled my hair, which I never do anymore (it only curls the bottom quarter, it's so long the curlers only wrap around to about a quarter of it and that takes long enough 😂) but as soon as we stepped off the train it was pissing down! 🌧 First purchase was a big umbrella and of course the only curled part of my hair stuck out at the bottom and got wet! 🤣 Rat tails all weekend! 🙌🏼🤦🏻♀️ #typical
Going into year 33 like... 🙌🏻 My time... and YOURS... is worth more than the incessant need to say yes to everything and everyone. You WILL disappoint people. You WILL let people down... but if they can't see the bigger picture when you need to "take a minute" or even "take a few weeks"; then those people aren't your people. Wish them well, bless them, think positive thoughts for them... and MOVE ON. Today is NOW. Stop apologizing for not being a super hero and be YOU, the best you can. Every damn day. ✌🏻❤ #sorrynotsorry#zeroapologies#adulting#thepowerofno#yourvibeattractsyourtribe#timeisvaluable

Just in my very honest opinion: A lot of people would always ask and tell me (both seriously and sarcastically), "Mahal mo pa siguro ano? Kasi kung hindi, truly wala ka ng paki." or... "Dapat maghanap ka na lang ng iba yung deserve mo talaga para makalimot ka." To be honest, I don't know what to reply. But, there's one thing that I am not confused of and I am sure about myself. When I love someone, it's genuine and pure and definitely not half-baked. It's sincere and straightforward. I don't beat around the bush. I don't go into a relationship just to be able to forget. No. I don't do rebounds. If it hurts, it hurts. No one would ever be able to change that fact. If you love yourself, you will never attempt to give your broken self to another person when you are most fragile. So if I have given this kind of love for 5 years, do you honestly think I would be able to move on in a matter of 8 months? It's like a wound you know. You cut yourself, you bleed, you put a bandaid on. But the bandaid is just there temporarily on the surface. The wound is deep. It would take time to heal and I am not in a hurry. Recover from the stitches first, before you move on. "Acceptance", "Moving on", yeah... BIG WORDS. But so is "Healing". #lifelessons#adulting#MondayThoughts#unsolicitedadvice#HealFirstBeforeMovingOn#word#travelogue
You are the captain of your own ship; don’t let anyone else take the wheel.
Decisions can be difficult, especially when you know that they are likely life-defining decisions. They aren’t just “should I have peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch?” decisions but “how do I want to spend the next 10 or 50 years of my life?” type decisions.
However, oftentimes, it’s the “small” daily decisions that add up to a completely different life. 💳Years of daily deciding to stick with your budget instead of swiping a credit card and spending money you don’t have can put you in a position to be debt-free and give generously.
👗Months of eating less and working out more can result in a smaller dress size, more energy, and better health.
👨👩👧Years of investing in and nurturing your children on a daily basis can result in mature, well-grounded adults who go on to lead successful lives.
We all so want to make not just good decisions, but the right decisions. Decisions that we won’t regret for years to come. But how can we know what a right decision is?
It might seem like overkill to ask yourself these questions with the small decisions, but truthfully, as indicated above, it’s often those seemingly small decisions that define the course for our lives. So don’t overanalyze the peanut butter and jelly decisions, but do know where you’re headed and then ask yourself daily if you’re making decisions that are moving you closer or further from where you want to go.
Got my food situation prepared for a very busy week! Yusss. Rolled well on my "adulting" check.
My macros will be a bit out of whack, but these meals made good use of ingredients that were already on hand. Plus, it's all still good, wholesome food. Nourishing noms to eat all week long and money staying in my bank account are both great things. 😁 #mealprep#mealprepsunday#frugal#selfcare#selflove#adulting

Truth. I really hate all these motivational the only way to be great is to work 23 hours a day and dream huge and you will only get to the stars if you build a damn rocket and bla bla bla. Sometimes it's ok to be a fork. I haven't brushed my teeth yet and it's 4pm (sorry dentist). I've eaten 2 bags of skittles instead of real food (sorry mum). 🙄 However, I've finished off a client website, sent my invoices, AND watched Miami Vice. I've also posted anti-inspiration on Instagram. Look at me adulting. Who's winning now? .
