Happy Friday! I hope you are all doing well and today, I am sharing with you a little update on my life. The last one I gave was back in January of 2021 and a lot of things have happened since then.
So, if you want to know what’s been going on in my life, then keep on reading and don’t forget to check out my previous post: 20 THINGS I DON’T BUY ANYMORE.
Coffee With Joy!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am totally freaking out over my future. I am planning on graduating at the end of summer, but I am completely lost at what I actually want to do after. I am stressed out in general for what’s coming. Like so far, I’ve always been a student and I’ve always known what to do. Now, I am lost. I know it’s normal and I try not to act on my anxious thoughts.
It’s very exciting at the same time. I mean, this is where I am going to start my life, my career, and my journey as a real adult. It’s actually the same feeling I had when I was applying for universities in Canada back in 2017 and I was still in Lebanon. I didn’t know what to expect and I was scared, but everything turned out amazing in the end. I feel like I am being a bit dramatic and I don’t know if anyone feels the same when they graduate but well.
If we were having coffee, I would tell that my anxiety has been acting up lately. If you didn’t know, I have an anxiety disorder. For a while, I’ve learned how to live with it and I kind of had it under “control”. However, lately, I’ve been having crazy anxiety attacks and feeling extremely irritable. I can’t tell you why exactly, but I am pretty sure it’s the stress of university, work, visa, and my future.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that my thesis is going well so far. I am at the part where I have to do interviews and analyze my findings. It’s kind of cool and I love what I am doing.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I got into an online school of witchcraft. It’s basically online lessons that I take to become a better and stronger witch. I also get in touch with other witches and mentors who can guide me through my journey. I am actually extremely happy I was able to get in and it’s such a great opportunity for me.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that one of my 2021 goals was to practice more self-care, and oh boy let me tell you. I’ve never been more focused on my mental and spiritual health. I have been dedicated to my self-healing journey for a couple of months now and I’ve never been happier with myself. I still have a lot of work to go through, spiritually, but I am happy with what I’ve dealt with so far.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’ve been feeling really disconnected from my feminine energy. For most of my adult life, I’ve been focusing on being extremely productive and achieving things so, on the way, I lost my feminine side. I stopped taking things slow, being in touch with my emotions, and with my body. I only focused on working hard and doing things for university and work. At the end of each semester, I would feel extremely drained and burned out. And like most people in our society, I would normalize it. Hence, why I started my self-healing journey and why I want to connect with my female energy. Note that female and masculine energy has nothing to do with gender and we all balance both energies.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that my goal to become a better consumer is going well. I do purchase some items from H&M sometimes. But I definitely do not succumb to my impulses as much and I am buying more local. Which is awesome! I am also eating so much better and incorporating a lot of vegetables and whole grains. Cooking has actually become more fun since I become vegetarian.
Coffee with Joy!
