Discipline instead of motivation?

Good morning guys!

For the longest time, I’ve been looking for tips and tricks on staying motivated and accomplishing my goals. I’ve only recently come to realize that motivation is great, but is that really something that helps you? Sometimes I think motivation is fickle. Fickle is the perfect word for this because we don’t know how we are going to feel when doing something. Motivation comes and goes, it’s not permanent. But having discipline can be. That’s why that should be the ultimate goal. Don’t look for reasons to motivate yourself because they may not work, just go and do it! Do what you want to do and get it done! 

I don’t really have any tips on developing discipline besides the basic things like; work hard, stay on track, remove any temptations, eat normally and healthy, change your routine if it isn’t working for you, know your weaknesses, set goals and have a plan to achieve those goals, create new habits that will help you achieve what you want, and reward yourself when you accomplish your goals and get to what you want. 

So discipline, discipline, discipline! You can do it!! 

Updates, Trips, and Coffee! 🌿

Hello there!!

I have had a tab open with a draft of a blog post about weekend getaways and planning which I never got around to finishing. On the bright side, we finally booked our weekend getaway for my birthday!!! We are going to Dallas, Texas!!!!!! The only time I’ve been to Texas was when I was traveling to Florida by plane and we had to stop for a connecting flight from Dallas. So I’ve only been at the airport which was a pretty cool airport tbh, so in that matter I am so excited to explore Dallas and see a little bit of what Texas has to offer 🙂

With that being said, have to do the obligatory “things to do in …” post so that will be coming very soon. I won’t be planning anything, I’ll just have a list of fun things and places to visit and places to eat of course, but this is a weekend getaway – no stress, just FUN!

Also, this is our first trip together as a married couple, alone. We went to Colorado back in May, but with family so this will be the very first one where it’s just us two, yay!

I’ve been thinking about the future a lot recently and I feel like I have so much faith in Mirhad, I think he can really do what he wants and accomplish his goals he is working really hard on right now. I know you’ll read this Mirhad, I just want you to know I believe in you. I know I don’t say it often, but I really do. YOU GOT THIS! ❤

But yeah I have been thinking about the future a lot and I have so much I want to do and so many goals to accomplish and I am so ready to tackle them. Lots of positive vibes lately and honestly it feels so nice. Wake up in the morning with a happy mood, even if I am tired, oh well. Change the mood, make yourself happy, wake yourself up, and accomplish some goals!!! Life is too short to not be doing what you want!!!

About to go to Ikea to get a book shelf.

See ya! 🙂

Good morning!!!!!

Wanted to blog yesterday, literally had a post I was writing, but then I had to go help Mirhad study for his test. Currently I’m at the airport with Mirhad, we are looking at the wait times and how long it takes each person by timing them to see if it is accurate with their devices. Sitting here watching the TSA line really makes me want to buy a plane ticket and just go explore somewhere else. Oh, how I wish ✨

So I officially got 2 tickets to the Ellen Show and we were just looking at airplane ticket prices and it’s much cheaper on Frontier Airlines than if I used Travelocity and another airliner. About to look at Airbnb’s and see how much it would be because Airbnb’s are way better than a hotel, they just feel more homey. Hopefully they’re not too expensive!

I can’t believe I finished all of my online assignments before Friday, yay. I worked super hard for this! The only 2 things I have is for my classes is due Monday & Tuesday but it’s not too much work. So I can chill this weekend for a little bit yay! Next 2 weeks will be gruesome bc final projects and finals in my online classes, but when that’s over I will have a HUGE weight lifted off my shoulders. Then finally I can focus mainly on my two classes that I have M-TR and I can focus on other important stuff too! Yay, I can’t wait seriously. Spring Break cannot come any sooner. So since I’m going to the Ellen Show, I think I’m not gonna do anything for Spring Break and just stay in California for a couple days longer instead. That way I don’t go somewhere and then go somewhere again 2-3 weeks later.. the wait will be worth it!

Hmm, what else?? Still working on my 2017 best memories video.. taking longer than I thought it would hahahahaha.

But yeah, I think that’s pretty much it, there are some posts I have to make still that I haven’t had time to do.

See yaaaaa!
