May Promises

Well, How are you doing, sweetheart?

I love the month of May. This is the month the earth comes to life, the grass is turning green, flowers are blooming, and everything you planted in the garden is beginning to sprout. It’s an excellent time to be alive!

A couple of years ago, my daughter Sammicakes wrote a post titled May Promises. The things that she wrote brought me pure joy. Her spirit, heart, and soul are so pure. I’m her mom, but she has made me better; this little angel motivates me and makes me think.

Make sure you check out her blog. She infrequently blogs because she is a full-time Environmental Engineering student (Senior year)and President of the “Women’s Engineering Club.” Therefore her schedule is bananas! And she just finished writing her second book. You can purchase her first book on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Below is my list of May Promises; these are things that I will concentrate on to improve upon areas that I badly need to. I would love to see your list in my comment section or on your blog. Also, if you write your own May promises, please add a link in my comment section, and I will share everyone’s link on my blog on Sunday, May 7th.

  1. Hug more. If we all followed that one more, there’d be a lot more happier people in this world. Great list Belladonna. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for the reminder on the family vacation. Need to schedule family time. Always important.

    1. Thank you Brian! You are right, seems corny but a hug can heal a lot of broken hearts. Yes vacation time is a must, we only get the older two home for a short while. I can’t wait!

      1. Thank you, I wish wew had more of it, but I’ll take what I can get. Why did they have to grow up so fast?!!

  2. Wow! Great post! Love it!

  3. Your May Promises are truly inspiring and reflect a commitment to self-care and personal growth. I particularly love the idea of meditating outside and taking time to feel the sun on your face, as well as hugging more and praying more. It’s also great that you’re planning to read more and start back couponing. Your list serves as a reminder for us all to prioritize the things that make us happy and bring us peace, especially during this beautiful time of year. Wishing you an amazing May as well!

    Here is my list of May promises:-

    1. Exercise for at least 30 minutes every day
    2. Spend less time on social media and more time reading
    3. Try a new healthy recipe every week
    4. Call a friend or family member I haven’t talked to in a while
    5. Start a daily gratitude journal
    6. Organize my closet and donate clothes I no longer wear
    7. Limit my caffeine intake and drink more water
    8. Take a break from work and plan a fun outing with friends or family
    9. Practice mindfulness and meditation every day
    10. Learn a new skill or take a class in something I’ve always been interested in.

    By focusing on these May promises, I hope to improve my physical and mental health, relationships, and personal growth.
