Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017!

happy-new-year-wallpapers-3d

Yes, I know exactly what you’re thinking! Why in the heck am I just now writing a “Happy New Year” blog 15 days into the new year? Not that I want to blame it on my job, but being in the military and getting ready to deploy can put a strain on your personal life. Now that everything is almost settled on my end, I have time to write my New Year’s blog.

Every year we all somehow decide that we want to do something different (New Year’s Resolutions) because of the typical cliche “New Year, New me”. We all seem to fail at upholding those promises to ourselves before the end of year comes to an end. I remember making a promise to myself in 2015 that I would stop procrastinating. Procrastination was a very big friend of mine. I loved spending time with it, I loved going to sleep with it, and I loved having breakfast, lunch, and dinner with it. We spent a lot of time together as you can see, and it was getting really out of hand. After making a promise to myself and realizing I couldn’t keep it, I immediately stopped making a New Year’s Resolution.

This year, I am focusing on a numerous of things that will satisfy my mind, body, and soul. It is not a promise to myself, it is more of taking things day by day with a little effort to get the results that I want. I am going to start by doing things that I want to do, and doing the things that make me happy. Like my mother always said, “Once you get tired of doing things to make other people happy, you’ll realize that self happiness is the most important happiness of them all”. She repeated this line to us (my siblings and me) plenty of times, and at first I thought my mom was crazy for always repeating this to us. However, as I got older I finally realized that she was right, and that people will misuse you and your happiness for the sake of their own. All of 2017, I am going to take charge and do whatever I want in order to fulfill my happiness and worry about the rest at another time.

I am asking everyone who reads this blog to make sure you take charge of your happiness this year. Stop letting others control your joy and keep you from doing things that you love doing. I want you to feed your mind, body, and soul just so you can feel the joy that will come along with it. Go read a book, watch a good movie, take a long walk or jog, go hiking, or whatever it is that gets your blood pumping! Do not give in to the negative energy that people give out, look to the positive side no matter the situation. Find genuine people that actually care about your well-being and want to see you do great things from here on out. We only have one life; so why not give the best we can for a better future or better yet for our own self happiness!

Remember: Take charge and be happy all 2017!

Daily Rules to Living a Peaceful Life

We all wake up every morning believing that it’s just another day without looking forward to anything exciting. Often times we have a lot of bad days which can turn into a bad week. Bad news comes in many different forms, but we have to realize that it’s just a bad day not a bad life. In order to get through those bad days/weeks you have to set a couple of daily rules for yourself. Those daily rules will be your guide to living a peaceful life.

I am still working on setting out my own daily rules to living a peaceful life, but I have some really awesome and motivational rules that help me get through my everyday life hacks. Those daily rules are basically a guideline for my everyday lifestyle; I thought I’d share them with you in today’s blog.

  1. Wake Up: Decide to have a good day. “Today is the day that the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” – Psalms 118:24
  2. Dress Up: The best way to dress up is to put on a smile. A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks. “The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at outward appearance; but the Lord looks at the heart.” – I Samuel 16:7
  3. Shut Up: Say nice things and learn to listen. God gave us two ears and one mouth, so he must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking. “He who guards his lips guards his soul.” – Proverbs 13:3
  4. Stand Up: For what you believe in. Stand for something or you will fall for anything. “Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good…” – Galatians 6:9-10
  5. Look Up: To the Lord. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13
  6. Reach Up: For something higher. “Trust in the Lord will all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all ways, acknowledge him, and he will direct your path.” – Proverbs 3:5-6
  7. Lift Up: Your prayers. “Do not worry about anything; instead PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING.” – Philippians 4:6

I do hope that these 7 daily rules will help you live a more peaceful life and help you overcome those bad days/weeks.

Remember: God always answers knee-mail!!

Welcome

First, I’d like to thank you for taking the time out to visit my website. Shun Got You (SGY) has been in the making for some time now, and I am happy to announce that it is now in full affect! Everything that I do it is a reflection of my family and friends, I personally would like to welcome you to the team.

I’ve always enjoyed writing, entertaining, telling stories, and being someones personal diary; so blogging is something that I enjoy relying on when I can. Like you, I go through things on a day to day basis and some days may be harder than others. I’m young and I still have time -not much- to figure it out. Having that one person you can depend on is very hard to find these days and not many people are reliable. If we were to count on 2 hands how many people we could talk to about our day to day problems, how many fingers would you be holding up? Not many right? I didn’t think so! I have learned throughout life that you cannot lose yourself trying to hope and wish on someones ability to be there for you. My website is not here to judge you, it’s here to help. If you feel at any time you do not want to to share your name with me you can always go in anonymously! I’m┬áhere to pour out positivity and encourage you every step of the way!

Shun Got You will serve as your online personal diary and entertainment to get you through those life hacks. I’m here for you, your personal issues, and anything else that you would like to share. You can look forward to everything from my life as a Soldier to glimpses of my personal life + entertainment features. Breathe! It’s just a bad day, not a bad life.

LET’S GET MOVING,

RO’SHUNDRA
