some people are so thoughtful when you're sick: "make some tea, take a nice bath, get lots of rest, don't go to bed with wet hair, stay warm, I made you some soup." ๐Ÿœโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›Œ๐Ÿ’Š
and then there's my boss: "here are some Lysol wipes so you can wipe everything down when you're done in here so I don't get sick." ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ #selfie #selfiesfordays #sickdays #healing #almostthere #progress

so intensely eating a freezie first thing this morning that I forgot I had sunglasses on my head I could have been using. ๐Ÿ•ถ #classic #priorities #slopitch #softball #provincials #saturdaymornings #sunshine #baseballfield #map #goodvibestoday
9pm after work dinner adventures with your boss because you're both starving and someone mentioned tacos. ๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŒฎ #tacobell #tacos #dinneradventures #shoppersdrugmart #sdm #cheatday #goodtalks #whynot
"If Robin Williams couldn't, then who can?" || Something the guest teacher in my class said today which rubbed me the wrong way, though I don't think she meant it to come off the way that it did. Removing the stigma associated with mental health is a process, but it is not impossible. You can do it; We can do it; Don't give up. You are loved. ๐Ÿ’™ #criminology #criminaljustice #robinwilliams #mentalhealth #mentalillness #thoughts #fightingthestigma #connectedness #belonging #wevegotthis

the next challenge I intend to accomplish is to test the limits and overcome my social anxiety. so today, I went and froze my ass off while I played slopitch in a tournament for an old friend, not knowing a single soul that was there. And then out of the blue, who do I run into?? ONLY MY MOST FAVOURITE FASTPITCH PITCHER WHO I NEVER GET TO SEE ANYMORE! โšพ๏ธ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’œโšพ๏ธ #fastpitch #missfits #slopitch #catcher #pitcher #friends #map #tournament #rainydays #happydays #girlswhoplayball #loveher #beatingsocialanxiety #challenges #crushinggoals

day ten, the final day: "am I taking care of myself mentally and physically?" || Learning to love yourself isn't easy. Neither is learning that being happy is an every day choice, not something that you are just gifted with. We focus so much on the negative things that wear us down that we don't realize how much we actually take for granted in a day... it isn't until things get really bad that this becomes a reality. Taking care of myself physically is the easy part of this challenge: Play baseball, go to the gym, snowboard to your hearts content, eat healthier. It's the mental aspect which has proven to be tricky, but every day is a new day - one where adventure awaits and new opportunities to create happiness are presented. More activities outdoors, engaging in "headspace" meditation each morning, and staying connected with friends, family, and loved ones are going to help limit stress levels and promote a positive outlook on life. It took 10 days to find myself again... only 10. Tomorrow is the first day of a brand new chapter in the world of creating happiness and I couldn't be more excited. For some, it's going to be weird to see a non-negative Haley. For many, they're going to be excited that I'm finally back. Forget the hard past... it's time to live for today, see the beauty in everything, dream without fear, and love without limits. ๐ŸŒบโœจ #selfreflection #finalday #creatinghappiness #dontworrybehappy #workhard #playhard #livelife #hikingadventures #thechief #stawamuschief #scenery #explorebc #squamish #beautifulbc #adventureawaits #justdoit #bringiton

day nine: "am I waking up ready to take on the day?" || If this question would have been asked 9 days ago, I would have answered it with a no. Truth is, I lost touch with most of the little things that help to make me who I am. I've learned a lot about myself this last week and a bit. I've come to terms with things that I maybe didn't want to think about in the past; I've learned how to take things day by day and stop getting frustrated when they don't go according to plan; I've reconnected with all the things that calm me down, including the outdoors; I've identified all the things that make me the happiest version of myself and I've set goals to get the things I still need to be completely fulfilled; I've come to terms with all the things I was taking for granted on a daily basis; and I've learned to look on the bright side of things and to be more positive every day. So, 9 days ago I would say that too many insignificant details held me back from being me and stopped me from seeing how truly blessed I actually was. Today, I would say that I've come a long way in a matter of days and I'm forever grateful to the person who gave me these questions to work through. APPRECIATE EVERY DAMN DAY, because life is short and you are responsible for creating your own happy. [[It's Bella's birthday today and they're both so excited for their 'pupcake']] ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ‰ #selfrecognition #happybirthday #treattime #pupcakes #cavapoosofinstagram #pugsofinstagram #puppies #furbabies #happy

day eight: "am I achieving the goals I've set for myself?" || FIRST DAY OF GRADE [[18]], with a fat lip because I managed to hit my face on the car before class! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Classy. Anyways, goals aren't meant to be crushed in a day. It has taken me one Legal Assistant Certificate, and 5 years in the Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice Degree program so far to make it into my 4th and final year... 11 classes and 2 practicums left and I'll be done (which will still probably take me another year and a half). It seems like this has taken me a long, long time and when people say "how much longer until you graduate?", I can't answer them because I know that even to them it seems like I've been schooling forever. BUT, when I'm finally done I'll have achieved two goals for myself: graduate with a BA in Criminal Justice, and graduate debt free because I haven't taken out a single student loan for this program. I've paid my way through it all. All those long days, late nights, stressful assignments and mental breakdowns will be worth it in the end. You've just got to push yourself to achieve those goals, no matter how long it takes to do so. Now, what do I want to do with this degree? Well.. that's a whole different story. We'll just have to wait and see! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ“š #criminaljustice #criminology #ufv #selfreflection #goals #bachelorofarts #degree #study #firstdayofschool #smiles #clumsy
