february goals

i should have wrote this before february even started but sometimes life just happens.
and sometimes bad things happen in life for reasons we’ll never know the answers to.

dear readers, my heart hurts. february has not been so good.

earlier this month we found out that one of our very close friends was in a terrible car accident. and the same day we found out that some family members on j’s side were also in a bad car accident. it’s amazing how quickly two phone calls can rock a world.

thankfully, everyone is on the mend. j and i are blessed to have such a great support system who backed us up in our time of need and always!

then j got switched to night crew which messed up absolutely everything. we got to sleep sometimes after 3am and don’t wake up until around noon. my whole schedule has completely changed.

and then i found out that i lost my little babysitting job. it just goes on and on and on.

i read a quote somewhere that said “if you’re going to have a bad month, hope it’s february because it has the least amount of days.” fingers crossed that february is the worst month out of our year.

i’m a firm believer in that things can’t suck forever. things will get better. we just have to keep hanging on.
in the wise words of the killers “when you can’t hold on, hold on.”

anyways, enough venting/crying/feeling sorry for myself.
i’ve been thinking long and hard about my goal for this month…
i’m forever striving to be better. a better person, wife, fur mommy, etc.
my words of encouragement for this month come from bon iver’s beautifully haunting song skinny love.

this month i’m going to work on being more patient, not being a hot mess, finding a good balance in our crazy life, but most importantly i’m going to work on being kind. buddha said “life is so very difficult. how can we be anything but kind?”
amen buddha. amen.

these are my goals for february.
what are yours??

    I love your goals! I’m in the process of typing up my goals for March 🙂 My main goal for February was to find a job (which I did). I also wanted to start working out again, but I’m now moving that to my March goals haha

    “this too shall pass” very few things in life are permanent, so take the time to appreciate everything that’s going right and realize that the tough times won’t last forever.
    im a firm believer that you get back whatever you put into the world; focusing on being kind to others will bring more joy into your life!

lately on instagram...
it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
