The Bucket List orange

Hello, my bucket list friends back in 2015 I planted a tree to cross it off my bucket list . ( you can read about it HERE ) It wasn’t just any tree that I planted it  was an orange tree ! Well today I finally ate the first orange from that tree and I’m excited to tell you all about it ! Here we go !

 

 

The Bucket List orange

 

There has been one orange on my bucket list tree for a while. I’ve been waiting for the right time to eat it and today was the day. I simply went over to my tree and gently picked it and when I did a bunch of orange blossoms fell of the tree like confetti. It was like the tree was celebrating me picking the orange. The Orange was imperfect it had some spots but it was from my bucket list tree and that was perfect enough for me. Even though the Orange had been on the tree for a while it still tasted great !   I can’t wait to see if my bucket list tree grows anymore oranges !

Dear, OCD I’m in charge now

Hello, my bucket list friends . Last month I wrote quite a few posts about my TMS treatments for OCD . If you want to read them just look at my posts on this blog from February 2019. Anyways, I thought it would be a good idea to give an update on how I’m doing since treatment.Hold on tight and here we go !

 

Dear OCD, I’m in charge now

In my previous posts about TMS I wrote about some of the changes that occurred during treatments. OCD began to lose it’s grip on me and I was feeling more in control then ever before. Well, I’m happy to say that things have continued to improve. Before receiving the TMS treatments, OCD controlled a large part of my day. It was always controlling what I could and could not wear, what songs I could and couldn’t listen to, what order I had to put the blankets on my bed and many more things that impacted my everyday life. I felt anxiety that if I didn’t follow OCD’s orders bad things would happen . I never truly realized just how much of my time that OCD took from me.  Now, things are very different I’m in charge now. I’m able to make my own everyday choices with feeling little to no anxiety. If OCD stars to give me orders I remind it that I’m in charge now and I do what I want to do. I was so used to following OCD’s orders that now sometimes I have to stop and ask myself what I want to do . I feel so free now! Now , don’t get me wrong life is not perfect and it never will be but I feel a lot better now that I’m free from OCD’s control. OCD still sneaks in with it’s unwanted thoughts from time to time but I can dismiss these thoughts faster and easier then ever before ! I’m so happy that I took part in the study at Stanford. Things are looking up.

Things I love February 2019

Hello, my bucket list friends . I’ve been so busy this month that it has flown right by without me hardly even noticing but here we are at the end. Just keep on reading to see the things I’m loving in February 2019

 

Things I love February 2019

 

Hello tooth paste

I love using natural products and I was excited to try a brand of tooth paste that I had not heard of before. I got the mint flavored tooth paste and it has a simple taste that is not overpowering ,plus it always makes me happy when I’m using products that have not been tested on animals.

 

Judy Moody and the bucket list audio book on Audible

I’m always looking for bucket list stories so I searched Audible’s library for the any books on the topic. I came across the fun and funny story Judy Moody and the bucket list and I really enjoyed it. It’s a children’s book so it’s great for all ages ! I love how the book captured the frustration and excitement when it came to crossing items off your bucket list. I highly recommend this book book for all bucket listers.

American girl brain benders book

I picked up this book before I started my week at Stanford and I’m very glad I did. It was full of fun puzzles that kept me entertained during my downtime in between treatments. I liked the word searches the best. If you like solving puzzles this is a great book for you.

song – House of Fire by Alice Cooper

Now, This is not a new song or even song that I  newly discovered . It’s one of my favorite songs that I’ve loved since high school. Well years ago my OCD told me that if I listened to the song bad things would happen. Even though I knew that it wasn’t true the anxiety I felt kept me from listening to it. Until I started receiving TMS treatments during my week at Stanford. During the week I decided to try listing to the song again. Any anxiety I felt quickly faded and I was filled up with joy ! I was so happy that I was able to listen to the song again I played it over and over ! This is for sure my favorite song of the month!

Lara bar Gingerbread flavor

I love Lara bars and I was excited to see a new interesting flavor to try. On the wrapper it said it was a limited addition. I’m guessing that this flavor was released for Christmastime but there were some leftovers. I’m glad I got to try this flavor I really enjoyed it . I also tried the Snicker doodle flavor but the gingerbread was my favorite.
My little pony Equestria girls pinkie pie doll

I have quite a few Equestria girls dolls but I hadn’t got any in the newer style until I went to Target this month. I got the doll of my favorite character Pinkie Pie. I love her dress ! the balloons on it are so cute and fun. I also like her shoes with the heart cutout. I wish I could get some clothes like hers ! I’m so happy I bought her.
