Being the New Girl

About a couple of months ago, I learned that would be losing my job because of outsourcing. This felt like a devastating blow as it meant that I would not be seeing my friends every week day or going to the place I felt at home! Despite how I felt, I knew that I could place my trust in The Lord that he would take care of me.

By the Grace of God, I received a job offer within the same company shortly after! It was incredibly difficult to say goodbye to my friends and others who felt like family. I know that God had us in each other’s lives for a reason, even if it was for a short time! I pray that I’ve made a positive and lasting impact!

But now I know that God has assigned me to meet new people and take on new work challenges. We are never meant to stay in our comfort zone! It’s for our growth and also to inspire others. Each and everyday I pray that I may be a blessing to my coworkers and my job in general.

In the meantime, I’ve been enjoying organizing my new desk! I’m such a organizer and stationery freak, so I love the challenge of decorating a new desk!

In addition, I had to make a matching Happy Mug!

My Happy Mug is a green matcha latte! Matcha is happiness to me right now! I’m obsessed with the Green Matcha Frappuccino at Starbucks as well as the Green Matcha Kit Kat Bars! My Happy Mug makes me very happy and I think it may serve me as a project advertisement too!!!๐Ÿ’š

Simplify Your Thoughts

Simplifying my life has been more than just getting rid of stuff or pursuing a low waste lifestyle. A major criteria of simplicity is simplifying my thoughts.

I make sure that I fill myself with truth and positive thoughts. This allows me to reject “waste”; negativity, anxiety, and stress. I want my mind to be zero waste as well!!

It seems like recently I’ve been surrounded by negativity; hateful gossip, feeling taken advantage of, and even an individual trying to steal my ideas and making it seem like it was their idea all along. All of this can chip at you and bring you down. I had to decide to choose positivity and meditate on scriptures each time that I felt an attack. I decided to also stay off social media in the evenings and even have been undergoing major detox, starting by eliminating sugar. The more I fill my mind with negativity, the more negative I will be. But the more I fill myself with positivity, the more peaceful I will be as negativity will not have any room!

Berry Happy Mug

It’s my last week at my current job. It was my goal to crochet a happy mug for all of my coworkers, however, my time is cut short and I won’t be able to reach my goal!

I decided to at least make one more!

The colors feel nostalgic to me. It makes me think of blue raspberry, raspberry, and strawberry gummies that I used to have as a child. I also think about the blue raspberry chapsticks I used to wear! Funny how this flavor doesn’t seem to exist anymore!

Sleepy Totoro

I’m secretly such a huge fan of Totoro. I cannot help it because he’s so cute!

So when I learned that a dear friend and coworker was a fan, I knew that I had to make one for her!

This little guy was slightly inspired by Easter eggs as Easter is near:

I couldn’t believe that this only took a couple of hours to make. I also can help but wonder if he’s actually meditating instead of sleeping!
