Happy Diaries: Making It Through August, New Life Plans, Are We Ready For Fall Yet?
Hello and welcome to a brand new Happy Diaries! There were a lot of things that made me absolutely happy this week and I cannot wait to delve in deeper into what I have been up to! But before I get started can we please talk about that fact that it is already August 9th? Like whaaaat?? Can time please slow down so that I can get the rest of my life together! Don't get me wrong, ya girl is ready for ALL things pumpkin but I have a few loose ends that I need to tie up before the end of August. I don't know about you guys but every time I have a deadline to hit, time just flies by faster than superman but when I don't have anything going on-time moves slower than a turtle! I guess life is just crazy like that and sometimes you just gotta roll with the punches! Or at least that's what I have been telling myself in order to keep up with the curveballs of life! Ha! Anyways, enough of all of that yapping, let's dive right into all of the little things that have brought me joy this week shall we? Let's go ahead and get it started!
Happy Diaries
  • First things first, ya girl has been getting every day and keeping up with my daily stretching!
  • Does anybody else like when Google photos send you little "memory" updates from the past? I know I do! This past weekend I received a photo of the time that I went to a carnival last Fall and for a split second, I was ready to pull out those scarves and order a pumpkin spice latte! Ha! However, this heat did remind me that it was still summer so I came back to my senses rather quickly! LOL!
  • You guys, I have finally started to clean out my closet so that I can make room for warmer clothes! I am a firm believer that it's never too early to get prepared for the next season!
  • I have been doing really well when it comes to making breakfast at home! First of all, it has become increasingly easier to eat at home seeming as restaurant food isn't all that great anyways! Plus I always feel better when I have a home-cooked meal instead of fast food in the morning! I feel more energized and let's not forget it's also saving me A LOT of money!

  • I recently got my hair trimmed and I swear I feel like a new person! Ha! Although Fall is about to roll around pretty soon and I think I want to start growing out my bangs! What do you guys think? Will I stay committed to the process??? #weshallsee
  • I don't know about you guys but I am thoroughly excited for the Disney+ app to launch soon! I can watch all of my favorite childhood movies on repeat and now it suddenly feels like the '90's again! What a time to be alive!!
  • I have officially started on my Mid-year new plans and I am super excited about it! You don't have to wait until the New Year to start something and I am a firm believer of that! #justdoit
  • This girl has been getting a nap three days in a row and it almost feels like a miracle! I am a much happier Carey when I have had a substantial amount of sleep for the day! Ha!
  • For some strange reason I ended up on the early 2000's emo side of the internet and it was so nostalgic! Yellow Card? The Used? Does this ring a bell for anyone? Good times....good times!
Well, that pretty much rounds up all of the things that have made me happy this week. However, before I sign off I just want to say that I am hyper-aware of all the things that have happened this week and this is just a gentle reminder to take care of yourselves, log off the internet and decompress for a while if you need to. My heart is very heavy with all that I have been seeing on the news and I have been finding ways to cope as should everyone else. Stay prayed up, get involved and let's all make a difference together......take care you guys.....seriously...

Always Living and Forever Learning,
Sha'Carey Martin
