Currently... January 2016 // dreams-etc.com

reading…

Illuminae, by Aime Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.

watching…

Lost Girl

creating…

I haven’t been working on my own projects this month, but I’ve been using my creativity for some work projects and it feels really good to focus my creativity that way.

I do know what I’m going to be working on for myself, though. Should be able to start this weekend, if not earlier.

make-up…

Simple this month. Foundation, bronzer, mascara, maybe eyeliner.

learning…

How to control my worrying.

I’m sure there are some people who are reading this and laughing right now.

But seriously, I’ve done better at times this month than other months.

listening to…

When not at work, I’ve been listening to the podcast First Draft with Sarah Enni. (Veronica Roth’s interview was so inspiring!)

When at work, I’ve been listening to Christian and acoustic music. Here’s a little playlist (in no particular order).

 

WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO?

    I’m a born worrier, however, as a law of attraction practitioner I have learned that when we worry we actually invite that thing into your life. I use a super simple technique called spot it and swap it. Whenever I spot myself worrying I immediately start to focus on what I want (the outcome I want).

    I think it’s always a good goal to try and worry less. I used to mindlessly worry about everything, but thankfully over the years I’ve learned to be less obsessive in worrying about every little detail. Have a great Wednesday!

    I can honestly say I don’t recognize any of the songs on your playlist! I really need to listen to new music more often!

    I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching, creating and forcing myself to get out of the house more! It’s been good 🙂

    Totally NOT laughing…I’m working on controlling my GUILT. Seriously, I feel guilty for EVERYTHING, especially things that I have ZERO reason to feel guilty for.

    I love currently posts. I hope you are able to not worry as much. I know how much worrying can do to you. It can be rough! I’ve just recently found some Podcasts to listen to but have not started yet. I am hoping to do that soon. I wish I had more time to read. It’s one of my goals this year. I have so many books on my book shelf that are just sitting there unloved. Here are my currently answers:

    Reading: Your blog post 🙂
    Watching: My fingers type my responses
    Creating: Nothing currently. I do have a few projects in the works though.
    Make Up: Primer, CC Cream, Foundation, Blush and Mascara
    Learning: More about blogging
    Listening: To my co-workers talk on the phones

    If you come across any tips in your research on how to stop worrying, do share! I have a hard time with this myself. I swear I was born a worrier.

    What is Lost Girl?! I’m intrigued! And thanks for the reading rec’s–always looking for something new 🙂

    I’m anxious…to know what creative project you’re working on for yourself! 😉

    And I think anyone who would laugh at someone who grapples with worry is a big ol’ meanie <3 Glad to know you've had a good month.

    I love this kind of post. It sounds like you have a lot of intention and mindfulness is your life, so as far as I’m concerned you’re crushing it with this.
