Life Lately: Two more months left in Hawaii!

Life has been pretty busy and fast-paced lately, but it’s good. So, so good. If you read my last post, I’ve been here in Hawaii for 6 months now, which I still can’t grasp. Time FLIES. And it hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down. Here’s what life has been looking like lately. I had the flu and it rained for about two solid weeks, so I was cooped up inside for a while. The last few days have been gorgeous, and I finally got out, laid in the sun and remembered just how beautiful this world is. My work schedule is pretty crazy, so I barely get out and explore Hawaii these days. But since I only have two months left here, I want to prioritize exploring because I know I’m going to miss this island so much once I board that plane. This past weekend was full of self-care and relaxation, and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. I started (and finished) Big Little Lies and Santa Clarita Diet, and both series …

Life Lately: Crazy Hawaii weather, finding happiness + lots of changes

My life lately has been anything but boring, bland or “routine.” Since coming back from my trip to Nevada and Arizona, I’ve made A LOT of changes in my life (and I’ve actually stuck to them!!) And when you’re reading this, I’ll be unpacking from my trip to San Diego! I’ve been so busy, that I haven’t had time to post here, but I have been posting a lot to Instagram and Twitter (if you want to follow me there). Anyway, here’s what’s been going on in my life lately. Spent my first Valentine’s Day alone for the first time in many years. It was tough because it was different and filled with memories of the last few Valentine’s I spent with him. But I got through it, I treated myself to flowers, sweets, a bubble bath and my favorite Mark Ruffalo movies. I started a brand new job and I as of today, I’ve been working here for a month! I rearranged my work area and this is what my desk and view from …

Life Lately: New job, getting healthy, and moving

The last few months have been a whirlwind. I can’t even believe I’ve been back in Hawaii for almost half a year already (what?!) and since being back here, I’ve been really focusing on myself for the first time in years. My breakup, leaving my job and home, and relocating back to America in the span of a week or two was rough on me. And while I’m being honest, I’m still healing. Every day is a struggle, and I think that’s important to recognize. Heartbreak hotel. I recently took a trip to Arizona and Las Vegas, and it was everything I needed. Being in the desert, driving for hours each day, immersing myself in foreign surroundings, seeing new people and new places was healing. On my last night there, I broke down in my hotel room. I cried and asked “why, why, why” and when I woke up the next morning, it was as though I woke up in God’s hand. I felt okay. My heart opened up and I breathed out the biggest …
