Heart to Heart | July

Alright ladies! I am so excited to bring you my Heart to Heart blog series, where roughly once a month I will be sharing my experiences as a mid-20’s gal. Keeping things raw and true!

Routine:

With Sam and me in our new home, I've been trying to time block and get my routine down. I've realized that I need to work out in the morning; otherwise, I feel off halfway through the day. I don't know if it's endorphins or what, but someone please pull me out of bed at 6am to work out because I hate feeling sluggish later on!

I've also been time blocking my day:

  • 6-7am: Workout
  • 7-9am: Jesus time/get ready/breakfast
  • 9-11am: Deep work
  • 11am-12pm: Break/lunch
  • 12-2pm: Deep work
  • 2-2:30pm: Break
  • 2:30-6pm: Wrap up the day

This has helped me a ton to remind myself to get up, take breaks, and not take anything too seriously.

Purpose:

I've really been thinking about this lately. Being two years post-college graduation and trying to figure out what I want to do for work has been a constant thought cycle for me. I love my full-time job and obviously love owning this jewelry business, but it can be hard not to compare myself to other gals my age.

My husband is amazing at re-affirming me that we are so blessed with where we are. I really do love my full-time job. I love being remote (most of the time) and having the flexibility to work from coffee shops (you all know I am obsessed).

That all being said, here's a truth to hold onto: “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” Proverbs 16:9. No matter where we go, the Lord is near and guiding our steps. Hallelujah!

Cooking:

Sam and I discussed what cooking and dish-cleaning schedule would work best for us, and we decided that I would cook all the meals and he would do all the dishes at the end of the night. My full-time job is more flexible than Sam's, so this only seemed right. Here are my top 3 recipes that I've been loving (and Sam too!):

  1. Summer Chili
    Summer Vegetable Chili

  2. Buddha Rice Bowl (we added grilled chicken on top)
    Spicy Buddha Bowl

  3. Mongolian Beef Cauliflower Rice Bowl
    Mongolian Ground Beef

I hope this little heart dump brought you some peace. I know that being in your 20s can be confusing sometimes, and it's nice to hear the raw and real of other people's lives.

With love,
Sydney
