Memorial Day. Overall, a very restful day. I experienced eyebrow threading for the first time, which was interesting. I was told it is less painful than waxing, but I am not so sure. At least with waxing, its done fast-threading takes awhile. The one benefit to threading is no redness afterwards. Afterwards, I went to target, whole food, and trader joes. The one of best parts of the day was hanging out with my sisterfriend K. I really enjoy the time I spend with her (I have a lot of people with the first name K in my life 🙂 ) . The other great part of the day was speaking to my sister. I was so happy that she called me as it is usually the other way around. Something about hearing her voice really warmed my spirit.
Finally, I began my journey to learn Italian. I have a friend, K who is doing her Ph.D. in Italian and volunteered to teach me italian for free. She had me buy a book (see picture) and my assignment was to do the first chapter. I am really looking forward to my lesson tomorrow. We are going to meet for two hours each week and she will teach me this beautiful language. I am noticing that italian has a lot of similar words to the spanish language and it is sort of throwing me off because I want to pronounce things the Spanish way. I hope I don’t continue to get them confused.
Today marks the end of May and my assignment to stay in the moment. I have learned so much about myself this month and I really started to push out of my comfort zone. From doing a photo shoot to really paying attention to my feelings and needs, I am really proud of these past 31 days. I am so thankful for all of the people who touched my life this month as well as the lessons that they unknowingly taught me. I feel this month has started me on the path to realizing what I want to be when I grow up as well as helping me to see what does not work. In addition, I am in the place where I plan to actively rebuke anything that does not reflect who I am. I am honestly excited for the upcoming months. I have several trips planned home as well as a big trip to Rome.
This August I will be leaving my twenties behind forever and I am determined to enter them in a more positive space. I look forward to the blessings that God has for me.
