Our Library student assistant Breanna just worked her last-ever shift in our current Library space! Just a reminder that the @stjeromesuni#Library in SJ1 will be closing tomorrow, Friday April 26, at 7:30 p.m. and won’t reopen until January 2020 after our renovation. If you need any books from our Library, come and get them today or tomorrow—after that they’ll be packed up until the new year!
Beginning on May 6, you can visit us in our temporary location in the Finn Building Room 0011, Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. @uwlibrary@uofwaterloo#libraryrenovation#bigchanges
Currently reading #cozyminimalisthome loving it so far it has alot of great information on creating a home that you love. However I might have to reread this book in the future since we are planning to put our current home up for sale in the next few months!
Our family is going to be making a big move!
We are selling our house we have lived in for 10 years and moving into the upstairs of my mother in laws house.
Why are we doing that you ask? Well it's because we need a place to stay while our home in the country is being built!!! I am so excited for this journey but yet sad at the same time. I will miss our house, it has been home for a long time. But I am excited to get out of town and into the country!
Another day, another lob. Loving every minute of these big changes 🙌🏽

STAND UP FOR SOMEONE
If someone in a vulnerable position is being bullied or talked down to, stand up for them. Speak out and protect them from unkind words or actions.
I’m sure all of us have a story about being bullied. Or being a bully.
Unkind words can be carried a lifetime, just as easily you save someone the burden of carrying those words one day longer. If you’re even luckier you can be the Shield that blocks them entirely.
Kindest of Thursday’s! #love#kindness#littlelights#bigchanges#shineon#letgooffear#nobulling
The moment you can let go, life will reward you!
I’ve always been the girl who cared what people thought about how I looked, acted, said, you name it. I tried to behave the way “they” wanted me to.
But spending the last 4 years on me, and discovering more about myself, I’ve come to realize that no one thinks about me like that other than me. Everyone is too busy thinking about their own selves like that.
So, just let go, have fun, who cares, as long as YOU are happy, that’s all that matters. And believe me, people will judge and talk either way. And if they do, they just probably haven’t let go yet, so pull them in to your world and help them to let go.
#MadeToOrder , these #beauties are fully #customizable . Have your own #sigils to decorate the corners or center? Maybe you've got your own alphabet to work with. Whatever the case, send us a message, and we'll get to work on your own, #unique talking board!
Keep your eyes focused on our page, because we've got some #BigChanges coming in the next few months!

Ten years ago this month I was feeling pretty stuck. Even though I’d decided to start graduate school the following June I was still dealing with leftover depression and anxiety and attempting to self-medicate both. I’d left my last job in the magazine business and was getting ready to leave NYC, and even though I was excited I was also full of fear: What if my plan of returning to school to study psychotherapy didn’t work out? What if I failed? And I was unemployed-what if I ran out of money?! What would happen after grad school, where would I live? I had zero answers to these questions at the time. Fast forward to 2019 and I can tell you that it was challenging but I didn’t fail, money was tight but I figured it out, and the rest of the pieces came together during school as I started learning more about what I wanted beyond an education. A decade later I’m working with people who want to make big changes in life and I’m so grateful for the messiness of my story, that I can share an experience that didn’t seem ‘ideal’ or perfect but it worked out because I was determined. Sometimes making the decision to jump is the hardest part, everything else tends to fall into place. #bigchanges#takerisks#yourworthit 📸 @thedigitalbird

We are moving the final things this weekend. I am having a very hard time processing – we have to place 90% of our stuff in storage, for an indefinite amount of time. So today I have to say goodbye to our books, and furniture, and some clothes, our trinkets and keepsakes and other sentimental things. So many things I ended up donating because I realized by the time that we can use them again, we will already have outgrown them. Especially applicable to the kids’ stuff. Today I am sad that their soft toys are in bags, that we are going to potty train A2 on disposable nappies, and that other kids are going to play with their puzzles and toys. But it is not all bad. We are taking charge of our life, taking calculated risks, and we have a great support system. And at least we can spread some joy by giving so much away.
The future is uncertain and unclear, all that we can see is right now. And luckily there is a cup of coffee in my right now.
To some this looks like a girl who is mindless staring out at lake.
To me, she has a front row ticket to the bullfrog opera, and the raccoons masquerade ball. She’s got Broadway tickets to the chorus line of crickets and is watching the loons playing at Carnegie Hall
Simple shifts in how you view things will change your whole perspective on the world 💕

Two posts in one day. (swipe ➡️) That’s unheard of from me......especially lately. I am still here and still working on myself and my progress. It NEVER stops. If you want to be healthy and keep progress, you can’t live in a world of excuses. You have to take ownership of your decisions and be accountable for your actions. I look at my old pictures and I see a broken girl who couldn’t figure out how to be happy or healthy. I tried everything, for years. I tried every fad diet, every pill, I was even prescribed medication from my doctor to help me. But still nothing helped. Nothing happened. Because I lived in a world of excuses and I never held myself accountable for the things I was doing to my body and putting it through. The full honest truth is that I would go through the McDonald’s drive through and order two meals and eat them both.....burgers, fries, and all. I would do this in the secret of my car. As if no one would know because I threw away the evidence...........WRONG!!! The evidence of my actions was all over me! In the weight I gained, in the depression on my face, the guilt I felt after.
I don’t want anyone to think I am saying that you can’t live your life and eat a French fry or a donut once in a while. I don’t want anyone to think that health means just eating chicken or egg whites and spinach for every meal forever. You can be happy and healthy and still have indulgences and LIVE. Hell you can still have a burger at McDonald’s if you want! Live in a world of 80/20 or 90/10. 80-90% of the time be on your game, track your food, workout, go for walks. But the other 10-20% LIVE! Eat chocolate, drink a beer with friends, lounge on your couch all night watching a movie! It’s okay!
Swipe ➡️ .....My final note I want you to see the difference between 10lbs.....it’s not much....when you feed your body and build your muscle, being up 10lbs doesn’t always mean you look bigger...my measurements are still the same (my 🍑 is bigger though 🙏🏼 thank you lord🤣). It’s just something to keep in mind when thinking about weight loss or gain. It’s about composition!
