I ABSOLUTELY LOVE & ADORE THE ELDERLY

Well as you know I am 23 years old & proud.

Some days I am an older mature woman living in a 23 year old body.

Other days I am …well maybe not the typical 23 year old but the typical 23 year old ME..

I may be the spoil, bratty, immature 23 year old that fusses when she doesn’t get her own way. *hides face* MAYBE.. I said Maybe…

JUST MAYBE!  DAMMIT!

lol

However as I get older by the days, weeks and months the situations that would allow the little brat to rile up is somewhat under control.

Or maybe, just maybe I now  interact with people who know how to tame her. *hides face*

We give thanks for those people. (L)(O)(L)

I can be very serious… I can also be miserable… but don’t you dare call me miserable lol

I will simply deny it… like I usually do.

” WHAT!? No! I not miserable, why would you even say that about me?”

Really and truly I know the exact reason for being called miserable, you know like a drunk person would never admit that they are drunk.

I tweeted one day, Sunday, February 12, 2017 (since you were wondering lol) that if I had a choice between two tables with one table for persons my age group and the other being a table for senior citizens. With no hesitation and an easy pick at that, I am definitely  selecting the senior citizen table with a lot of enthusiasm!
Like HELLO STORIES AND ENTERTAINMENT!
YEARS OF EXPERIENCES, ADVENTURES, SUCCESSES AND FAILURES.

780fa70a-3375-419e-936b-40f72e9d91a0

Seriously have you ever sat down, chat with and listen to someone who is like WAYYY more than your age? Like hello they have been living on earth for so long, they went through it all. The highs, the lows, the valleys,the hills, sunny days, rainy days.

They went through it all.

I am so done with thinking that “dem did Bahn big”  many times I thought my Grandma didn’t get certain things but looking back I am sure she totally got it and just played dumb…smart.

I Like to hear historical stories, series of events and adventures  that occurred when my parents didn’t even know of each others existence, when they didn’t know whether or not they liked each other enough to even have sex, well.. whether or not my Mom was sure..I am sure my Dad was totally ready and waiting DWL ( IDK IDK IDK my inner Shonda Rhimes is showing, I might be just making up stories just to add a little spice to my blog)..or even much less to  think about conceiving my brother ..yea I like to hear about stories from way back.

The world is evolving drastically, the people are evolving.. two year olds now know how to go on YouTube and select what they want to watch…If you are 23 years old or older at two you were NOT able to do that but that’s the technology aspect of it.

On the other hand life kinda remains the same….kinda…. not much has really changed if you really sit and think about it. The same life problems we face today, did not just surface today they have been around for years.

Speaking to someone WAY OLDER THAN MYSELF  is like an adventure back in time, I ask them so many questions about their life, about what they were doing when they were 23, (BTW that is absolutely my favourite question to ask, asking them what they were doing at my current age) and they are just always so willing, they never shy away, they enjoy talking you know, the elderly like to chat (CHAT NUFF LIKE ME), man they can chat (LIKE ME), or maybe it is JUST ME CHATTING THEM OUT *Hides face*… well I can tell you this the stories they have are always entertaining… like ALWAYS and with the elderly I am NEVER shy to ask questions.

I love the elderly because they are like babies, I can still rub their back, hold their hands, pat their head, show them love and everybody deserves love no matter your age or your appearance. They are big babies, babies with experiences and adventures.

THEY ARE BABIES WITH AN IMAGINATION OF REALITY.. I was trying to sound cool and I really don’t know how imagination of reality sounds but I typed it and….well…I am going to leave it there.

I love the elderly because they are charming, warm and nice. They know how to share kind words. They can tell how genuine you are and they sometimes can predict the future.

When an elderly person say they can see me doing great things in the future I hold it extremely close to my heart and use it as a reminder.

“Kris you will do great things in the future”

I love the elderly because they are encouraging, they are always encouraging my generation to stay in school, get an education, work hard, be discipline, have manners.

Why do you think  they tell us that?

To be nice?

NO… they are teaching us a lesson because they know that’s an essential and important formula to grasped in life.

I love the elderly because they are funny, they say some hilarious things that you would not expect to come out of their mouth… That make you pause…. DIE OF LAUGHTER ….and then say

“Wow… that’s pretty hilarious.”

I love the elderly because they are the walking and living life lessons (literally). If you need advice seek it from an elderly person who has been through that phase in life.

TRUST ME ON THAT ONE

I love the elderly simply because they are an open book, uncensored, not trying to make anything look pretty .

Those people are my favourite kind of people.

There are persons who are my age and older are open like that but also some of the people I meet in my age group are all trying to impress. Literally… they only try to go to certain events or involve in certain things to impress. It annoys me and I can smell a fake from a mile. I can sense when someone is trying to be someone that they are not…simply to impress…

Actually typing that allowed me to think about another blog idea in my head….hmmmm…

(WAIT ON IT) 

I love the elderly because they are so humble, so content and no worries. They don’t care about the internet and phones, they don’t care about their outfit, they are just pretty happy to have life because honestly elderly folkes kinda know that…. well….that their time is near…. they know…you know…..

My Grandma jokes all the time about death none of us (the family) likes it but we accept it that she jokes about death she say things like.

” Please uno nuh mek me funeral long and drawn out or me will get up and tell uno fi hurry up”

My mother, her daughter does not find those little comments funny but I laugh because my grandma is okay with dying and I have to love and admire her for that. I love her and I treat her like a baby.

She is my baby!

My grandma only worry about what program she wants to watch and how heavy the piece of chicken breast is that she has to lift with her fork or her tea cup and the density of the liquid in it.

She worked hard for our family now we work for her.

I won’t be bias… Some elderly persons are the total opposite of sugar and spice

DEM VERY BITTAH..!

Have you wondering if life was that horrible…( no it is not, life is what you make it)

IN LIFE WE ALL HAVE A CHOICE …AND BACK IN THEIR YOUNG DAYS (THEY CHOOSE TO BE BITTER AND CAME OUT BITTER AND WILL BE BITTER FOREVER

when I sense negative energy from an elderly person…

Well I do what I normally do to other persons…..

Ignore them.

At the end of it all those bitter and sour elderly persons will never ever let me stop showing love to the sweet elderly babies.

NEVER!

IF YOU CAN’T FIND ME…

CATCH ME AT THE SENIOR CITIZEN TABLE DRINKING TEA AND LAUGHING AT FUNNY STORIES.

MORNING ROUTINES ARE ESSENTIAL IN ATTAINING YOUR GREATEST POTENTIAL

February 2017.

I have came to  realize how important a morning routine is.

How essential it is.

How necessary is it.

How it makes you a more productive person during the day.

IT HAS BEEN PROVEN BY ME! lol

I realized this because during my fitness journey, I got up EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING and did the same thing over and over…

EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING

I got up, I put on working out clothes, took pics for snap chat , do my workout routine and took more pics, I then made breakfast or some fruit juice smoothie and whatever came after

(This was for the early snapchat days, when it was more personal and not much persons were on it. However I no longer use Snapchat or Facebook because as you know I am doing the entire less social media thing)

With the exception of  Instagram and Twitter  of course, they are my babies, I enjoy it. they are the medium by which I share my positive thoughts.

Anyways so back to the point of this blog. YES ..my FITNESS JOURNEY MORNING ROUTINE. 

I did this EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING

I got up, I put on working out clothes, took pics for snap chat , do my workout routine and took more pics, I then made breakfast or some fruit juice smoothie and whatever came after.

I did this EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING

I got up, I put on working out clothes, took pics for snap chat , do my workout routine and took more pics, I then made breakfast or some fruit juice smoothie and whatever came after.

You got my point?

This was during summer so you know I had time, but I could have chose to not do anything and just be “comfortable” like what many persons are doing but I decided to push my limits, because…well… I don’t have any.

AND I CONTINUED MY ROUTINE WHEN LIFE GOT BUSY!

YES I HAD TO MAKE A FEW TWEAKS HERE AND THERE BUT I CONTINUED MY JOURNEY.

“Guh deh good gyal”

I would compliment myself for continuing this journey, making time and not having any excuses.

YOU DON’T HAVE LIMITS EITHER. 

DO NOT THINK LIMITS. DON’T YOU DARE!

If you told me two years ago that I would be pushing  a few abs in 2017 I would have laughed and said

“you love joke”  .. I am sure.

BACK TO THE MAIN POINT!

Well…you know…I started losing my buzz… you can say….I got bored.

I accomplished this goal…So what’s next Kris ?

I felt like I needed a NEW CHALLENGE a NEW BUZZ

I literally did not even feel like working out anymore because I did this for a long time…of course I might be exaggerating on the  EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING

I also want you to know that.. I had  down days, a few KFC days, a few don’t want to get out  of bed today days, a few alcohol consumption weekends…but that was me being human…but when I am KRIS-ANN I am pretty unstoppable and miserable. lol

As I said I DON’T THINK LIMITS 

But MAJORITY OF THE DAYS

I did it… EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING

you thought my baby abs just appeared because the universe felt like giving it to me?

NAH FAM…I worked my ass off…

Literally.

So…

So I reflected and said

Kris why don’t you have the drive to work out anymore?

and then like a switch in my head that flicks  ON I said

Maybe you just need to try something different..

I thought.

Hmmmm…

I always wanted to do yoga….

and I learned that..for me to be doing the same thing over and over

MADE ME SUCCESSFUL ONCE SO WHY NOT IMPLEMENT IT AGAIN!

It allowed me to accomplish my fitness goal.

I got up, I put on working out clothes, took pics for snap chat , do my workout routine and took more pics, I then made breakfast or some fruit juice smoothie and whatever came after.

EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING

So I decided that for 2017

WHY NOT CONTINUE THAT MORNING ROUTINE..but add a TWIST

BRILLIANT KRIS!

I THOUGHT! 

So here goes.

Instead of getting up at 7am, I now get up at 5:45am and out of the bed by 6:00am

EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING ( including weekends because this is new to me NO DAY OFFS ALLOWED)

  1. PRAYER IS KEY. I give thanks, I thank the supreme being for allowing me to see another day.
  2. YOUTUBE…I start playing a motivational video or uplifiting music…I listen to the words keenly (uplifitng music goes from soca, reggae and r&b )
  3. I go to the bathroom and sit on the best seat in the house…(DWL I had second thoughts about putting this here but…“fearless”)
  4. I go to the kitchen and heat water for my green tea
  5. I am a neat freak so before I can concentrate and FOCUS the way I want to I HAVE TO SPREAD MY BED AND PUT EVERYTHING WHERE IT BELONGS. HAVE.TO. LIKE THAT IS A NECESSITY FOR ME.
  6. Make my GREEN Tea NO SUGAR, bun fyah pon SUGAR inna tea!
  7. Then I do like 10-15 minutes of YOGA and/or Muscle building exercises (such a squats, sit-ups, pushups, walls sits just to name a FEW) while sipping my tea.
  8. I then read something, anything, a few quotes, a page from a book, but it has to be positive some way or form.
  9. I then shower, get dress, Pray again and leave.

MY ALARM SET UP IS THIS

a050ee9f-c0b1-4330-9c4d-43465c52ca6a

I do this

EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING.

I am pretty new at this and have been doing it for approximately 3 weeks now.

EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING 

Of course I have down days when I get all human and what not lol  

a few Popeyes and Pizzahut days here and there (yea KFC chicken is too oily for me now lol like I never thought I would see the day where I say that, only thing I get from KFC is a ZINGER), a few don’t want to get out  of bed today days, a few alcohol consumption weekends…but that is me being human…but when I decide to be KRIS-ANN I am pretty GREAT AND MISERABLE. lol

So in the next two years (2019) when you see that my leg can go around my neck you cant say I didn’t warn you!

I am very flexible to date, my husband WILL love me a little extra for that. lol

WHY I CHOSE YOGA?

Well …for one I wanted something NEW and it challenges me because I have to focus on the formation of positions, breathing techniques and balance ALL AT ONCE!

While usually I am use to a more upbeat routine ..

But that’s where I practice my discipline.. I just do it. I stop thinking about what i have to do and just DO.

I am slowly but surely becoming a DOER 

I do Yoga because I want to improve my flexibility, strength, my mantra, be good to my mind, body and soul.

Trust me it is a very relaxing exercise and don’t take it for a joke it can be extremely intense! It just had me fooled.

But most importantly I have started YOGA so approximately in the next two years I can place my legs around my neck.

Very important.

I hope you can come up with a morning routine to suit you and your goals so your mood and energy level can be maximized for your day to day activities.

TRUST ME IT HELPS!
