Random Thoughts + BeFit Giveaway Winner

I can't believe it is already Thursday! This week just flew by. I've been busy with work the past three nights and I am writing this as I am coming off of a night shift. Talk about tired!

I love my job but I am happy to be done and out of there for a few days. It's been a bit depressing at the hospital lately. So many people are coming in through the Emergency Department with the flu and unfortunately quite a few have passed. Some patients are immunocompromised and others are perfectly healthy with no underlying diseases. This flu is definitely not bias and is attacking so many people.  I know people have strong opinions about the flu shot, but if there is even the slightest chance of preventing death from the flu, then why not give it a try? This is not meant to be a PSA but just a thought. If I didn't have to get the flu shot for work, I am not sure that I would take it. Honestly I am only talking about it because it REALLY has been depressing seeing people die from this.

On another topic...Wednesday was International Women's Day. I just wanted to share the two most important women in my mother and my grandmother. Without their love and support, I would not be where I am today. My abuelita suffers from Alzheimers but she is one of the strongest women out there. She is the back bone of our entire family. My mother and I have had our ups and downs (like most mother/daughter relationships of course), but in the end I know that I can always count on her. When I was little she strongly encouraged me to get an education and to never depend on a man. She taught me to be an independent woman and for that I will forever be thankful.

I have kind of slacked off in my gratitude journal. To be honest it was getting hard to be grateful with three things every single day. I was struggling to find knew things every day. I since then have just been trying acknowledge all the good things that happen to me everyday. I am not journaling it, but I am taking five minutes out of my day to reflect on the positive things in my life.  With so many negative things that have happened to me in the past year I am choosing to be happy. I choose joy every single day.

Lastly, I wanted to thank all of you who participated in my BeFit Giveaway. I have truly been enjoying their products and was happy to share the love with one lucky person. The winner for the BeFit giveaway is:
