Word-Of-The-Days // Other Shenanighans You Probably Don’t Care About

Oh hey–looks like you were curious enough to click on this post. 😀

This has been my life recently. Emerging out of Quarantine. Let me know if you relate to any of these!

Evening Walks

I’ve been enjoying evening walks around 7 pm onward, when the air starts to cool off (it seems to be more cool in the evening than in the morning; midday is when it’s the hottest). It’s always nice to have a companion to do this with; Loki and Alaskan Malamute and Diego!

Oh Loki, how I love you. 💓 Years ago, I wrote in my manifestation Journal that I really wanted a big furry dog to cuddle with. Knowing fully well that I did not have the financial capacity, physical capacity, or the emotional capacity to take on a full-time dog and its responsibilities. I wanted this, still.i wanted a dog because I felt lonely, because I felt that the presence of a furry friend that never thought of the past nor had anxiety about the future, but was just so present with the current moment, would bring me to a to state of grounding and Bliss. To a state of comfort when I had meltdowns, and of cammrodery when I felt alone. âœĻI didn't know how, but I just knew somehow.âœĻ I wrote this down, and let go of the expectation. I let the universe do her job. … …And somehow, a few months down the line, I found myself walking with this dog not once, not twice, but five times a week. One of the best things that's ever happened during quarantine was meeting a fellow neighbour who had a beloved, giant, 8 year old Alaskan-breed dog named Loki. not only did I find myself an animal companion, but I made myself a beloved new friend. I do not have to take care of Loki financially, or bathe him, or take on the burden of any time-constraints that came along with being a dog owner. And yet I got the camaraderie that I was looking for; that I was manifesting. 🌌🌌âœĻ The Universe really does work wonders. She gave me what I wanted–or something better. âĪïļ So have faith, set your desires out and have faith they will come into fruition SOMEhow. And don't fret about the How, my love. 😉

Word-Of-The-Days

I love having wide vocabulary. Words are power because it makes me feel intelligent and articulate and gives you the skill of accurately expressing how you feel. For example. the other day I learned the word Seva:

“Seva is a principle in yoga which means to give back. In Sanskrit, the word Seva means “selfless service”. When we give back, not only does it help others but we, the giver, receive even deeper gifts from the experience of giving. When we give to others, we grow as individuals and contribute positively to the world. Giving enables us to connect more deeply to others and our communities. It also helps us to lead more joyful, happier, and purposeful lives.”

Pretty Stationery

Cleaning out stationery. Stamps, and stickers make EVERYTHING better. And when I put a pretty sticker next to a nasty task, I gotta do it.

Salmon Chips

This is so simple to make, it’s a no-brainer. Eat some collagen chips instead of carbs! (Collagen is good for the hair, skin, and nails, did you know? Here are some more supplement facts)

Work

Work hours are slowly returning back to normal; for those that don’t know, I work at a supplement’s store as a manager/advisor. I work very closely with the owner of the store. 🙂 We’re a small business with big hearts.

Here’s a tour of the place!

Right now, we have modified hours; I’m in most days of the week from 12-5. Restocking, cleaning, prepping, ordering, cashing people out, and advising (“I’m having trouble sleeping…what should I take?”) Our usual hours are from 10-9pm. I love the fact that I feel a renewed sense of purpose going back to work. That was really bogging me down during quarantine–feeling like I’m wandering aimlessly.

We’re giving the store and NICE PURGE and revamp; so things that are expiring need to be thrown away or donated (I love taking them home!) and we discuss new changes, like what products to keep and any new operations.

Etc…

…And last but not least, here’s a vlog of me going loopy in quarantine, which is over, thank goodness! I think when the weather started getting more sunny and warmer out near the end of May, everyone just called it quits.
