Awhile ago, I posted my Mental health monthly faves, a series my favorite youtubers who frequently talk about their favorite things for that month that helped their mental health.
January is a hard month for me- yes, there are new beginnings. But the winter has also just begun and sunshine and happiness sometimes seem farther away for me. Do you feel the same? [Delicate ]

And I have really been enjoying being in the classroom setting again and learning. Although we learn things every day, there is just something different about someone giving you the information, taking notes on what you think is important, and reading about a subject you are interested in.
Also- taking a class to explore a new career you are interested in make it that much more intriguing, because you are really trying to get the most of out it. [I never used to actually read the textbooks I paid so much $ for in college, but now I am!]
It’s been cold outside and I’d rather be inside binge watching. Lately it’s been a true struggle balancing between Downton Abbey and Shameless. Last night I watched too many episodes of Downton- I am now mid-way through season 2 and panic has set in for when it ends.

My mom got us a bunch of loose leaf tea for Christmas from World Market and she got me a travel mug from David’s Tea with a tea infuser already inside of it. The mug seriously keeps my tea hot all day long. And I have been having one cup of coffee in the morning and tea the rest of the day and feel better most days doing that!
Appreciating the little things:
