Each week, I like to think and appreciate what I am thankful for throughout the week. I encourage everyone to do the same. You don’t have to write it, or type it out, but it does help, but stop stopping whatever you are focusing on, you can take a pause to think about what you are thankful for during the week.
Here is my list.
I am happy that my mom’s move went well. She is slowly starting to settle in her new place. I am happy for her.
I am grateful that my mom bought me some lunch the other day, that was really nice of her.
I have been slowly making time to jot some ideas down for my stories. I am really excited to start writing again. I have been brainstorming some cool ideas, so I am going to bring back Writing Wednesdays again! I normally write a short story, or a chapter of something I am working on.
I am thankful for the continued love and support I am receiving from my all of my followers. Keep up with the amazing support. It makes me so happy that I can inspire so many people.
I am glad that there were a few days where the weather was nice, which made it really enjoyable to go for a walk. I try to go out as often as I can.
Let me know what you are grateful for in the comments. 🙂
In this post I will be talking about books! Reading books is one of my favourite past times. It is such a relaxing and peaceful habit.
This post it answers the following questions,
What have I finished reading?
What am I currently reading?
What will I read next?
What have I finished reading?
I really enjoyed this book. To Kill A Mockingbird is such an amazing book. I would recommend it, although in my opinion To Kill A Mockingbird is the better one of the two, but this book is still amazing.
2. What am I currently reading?
This book has always been one of my favourites. It is so inspiring to me. I have seen the movie countless times, and I am going to reread this, because I can’t travel, nor do I feel comfortable at the moment to travel somewhere else. Even if it is still in my country, like I was planning. It’s like I’m travelling somewhere new even though I am not physically travelling anywhere. I like that effect in books. It’s also one of the books I recommend to others.
3. What will I read next?
Because of Tuesday’s Top Ten of blue covered books I owe, I thought now would be the perfect time to read this book. It will give me some added motivation and inspiration. I loved the book so much, so reading everyone’s stories will make me happy.

Who do you feel most comfortable with, and why? I feel most comfortable with my sister and my boyfriend, My sister because I grew up with her. When we were younger, I would spend my weekends in her room having a sleepover. We played Barbies, she would read us stories, we would watch movies together. We were always close when we were younger, and we are still close now, but sometimes it can be challenging since life is busy. I’m comfortable with my boyfriend because we have been together for five years, and we live together. We are comfortable telling each other our hopes and dreams with another. We can be vulnerable with each other.
Who is the kindest person you know? Describe their kindness. This one is challenging, because I know so many kind people. I would have to say my second cousin is the nicest person I know, because we are able to talk about all sorts of subjects. We give each other advice, and she has great things to say to me. And she even offered my boyfriend and I to spend a few nights at her, when our household was becoming too stressful for me. She thinks of the right things to say to me regarding feedback and encouragement to face my fears. I just enjoy talking to her so much.
What is your favorite blog that you’ve posted? Why? This one is challenging because I have written so many blog posts… I would probably say, Second Chance, the one where I got hit by a car, because I was inspiring other people to chase their dreams, and to never give up. If you would like to read it, here is the article. I was very lucky that day, because I walked away with only bruises.
I feel like there are probably other ones that I have enjoyed writing, but those were the first ones to come to mind.
If there was a way you could infuse an act of kindness habit into the everyday life of all people in the world, this habit as natural as the daily action of brushing their teeth, what would that kindness habit be? I would say spreading joy and positive vibes to others. It could be as simple as, “I like your scarf!” Or “You have a lovely smile, or eyes.” When we compliment people, it not only lifts other people’s spirits, but ourselves as well. Or even just let people know that they are doing a good job with raising their children, or any kind of service; let them know that you’re proud of them.

My dream house would like three bedrooms, one for an actual bedroom, one for my office so I can blog and do my future homework when I go back to school, and one for my exercise room for yoga and meditation.
