Happy Friday! We made it! There really are weeks when it feels like Friday will never come – seeing as how I woke up Tuesday morning and immediately thought “it’s Friday!” only to realize it was definitely not Friday… I’d have to say it was one of those long weeks for me.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared some of my favorite Instagram accounts with y’all, so I wanted to list some of my recent faves! You might have seen my recent post about going flexitarian – changing your diet in such a big way can seem kind of intimidating, but it always helps to surround yourself with encouragement + support. That’s why I found some plant-based accounts to follow so I can stay motivated, encouraged, and inspired. Whether you’re flexitarian, plant-based, vegan, or not, all of these feeds are super fun, colorful, and were aesthetically pleasing, so you might find them fun to follow, too!

Have you ever had one of those moments when God lays something heavy on your heart and you know you have to spit it out even though you don’t exactly know where or how to begin? This is one of those moments for me lol. I’m hoping as I write, my mind will clear up a little bit and I can convey the message I’m trying to desperately to get across.

I really have tried to refrain from talking about relationships or anything of the sort because I’ll be the first to admit, my experiences have been – quite frankly – a mess. I remember going into a couple Valentine’s Days feeling bummed about not having anything/anyone to celebrate, but this year I am perfectly fine with buying myself some flowers and curling up with my pup, a glass of wine, and Netflix. I’m grateful for what I learned from past relationships, but this time of being single has been nothing short of refreshing.

I’m no stranger to being confined to a chair all day. Nearly all of my jobs prior to my job now required standing, walking around, heavy lifting… even being a student I was constantly darting around campus and easily racking up 12,000-15,000 steps a day – so starting a desk job was a little bit of a culture shock for me. At first, in terms of my health, it didn’t seem so bad. But eventually the weight gain began, my spine and neck started to feel all out of whack, and my energy level was at an all time low.

I knew this day would come eventually, but I am so excited to announce that my first YouTube video is officially LIVE! 2019 has already been a huge year for the blog with over 2,150 views in January. Perhaps a small feat to some, but I could not help but be blown away by the Lord’s goodness as His hand has become so evidently present in The Southern Sooner’s growth.

Happy Wednesday readers! A fun little fact about today is that it’s national handwriting day. So for today’s post I decided to do something a little different and handwrite it. I felt like it was fitting for what I wanted to write about today anyway. I hope that it leaves you feeling encouraged and that you’ll join me in making 2019 your most unlimited year yet.

I love the new year because there’s so much determination in the air to get various areas of our lives together in hopes that maybe it’ll stay that way. I love spring cleaning but I try and get organized and purge unnecessary items long before March. Starting off the year a little bit lighter and less burdened by material things just feels good. So for any of you that are looking to do the same, here’s what I’m doing to start 2019 off organized!
