Don’t wait on approval. Stay with your plan and keep your persistence to go the distance. Too many of us slow up to look back, or look to our sides to see who is following or supporting. Stop trying to convince everyone to believe in you and your ideas.
Be smart ad intelligent to always make the work done and push forward to make a difference in any circumstances either positive or negative.
Believe In Yourself.
Your clear vision maybe blurry to someone else because it wasn’t meant for them. Just make sure you are always clear on your vision. Stay focused.
Have an awesome week!
We never know what someone’s mental state is or what they are going through. I try damn hard to encourage people even when I’m not to sure myself. Remember people will forget your words but never how you made them feel. As much hate that’s in this world from others try to let your words flow of positivity.
When I tell someone hey boo… GM beautiful/ gorgeous, anything for you baby cakes….. It’s not to be funny it’s because I want you to feel special. It’s so many people suffering with depression, anger, hurt or just confusion that your simple word/sentences would make their day. It doesn’t cost a dime for you to be kind.
Let’s learn to lift each other up versa tearing others down.
So far 2017 has been faced with lots of challenges for a lot of people, especially the political turmoil many are going through. I have had to tell myself “log off social media” because the things we are going through as a country faced with a lot of anger, also we are going through challenges in life which can be so stressful without politics included.
I enjoy being able to go into my space in my home to get away from everything and just meditate to bring calmness back to my soul.
Yes it helps to deal with things with what we are going through and can help even bring a little laughter to your soul as well.
Here are few ways that you can do just to center yourself and bring back some calmness, even if it is just for a few moments.
Take five to ten minutes for a simple seated meditation
Take a meditative walk, focusing solely on the physical sensations of walking—the earth under your feet, the swing of your hips.
Write down everything that’s weighing you down mentally and then burn it as a form of letting go
Write down everything you’ve learned from a difficult experience so you can see it as something useful and empowering instead of something to stress you out.
Create a peace collage. Include images that make you feel relaxed and at ease. (Try looking up peace collage on pinterest and you will find some great ideas)
Declutter a cluttered part of your home, creating a more peaceful space.
And finally my favorite, get up and dance to your favorite song, focusing solely on the music and the movement. Get into your body and get out of your head! Here are some my listening tunes when I just need to unwind (love jazz and neosoul)
I love and deeply care for my self, mind and body.
I love and accept myself fully, completely, unconditionally.
I am grateful for all I am, have, give and receive.
I am grateful for my life, every breath I take, my wondrous mind and body.
I choose to celebrate and feel gratitude for each day.
I replace indecision with calm, focused decisive action.
I notice and wisely let go of any judgments of myself or others, easily and effortlessly.
I consciously seek to see the best in my self and others even as we may consider requests for change.
I courageously protect my happiness.
I let go of any reluctance, resistance to my good, easily and effortlessly.
Take advantage of it to do what you couldn’t do yesterday. If you don’t, tomorrow, when today becomes yesterday, you will still be standing here complaining about the same problem! You can’t undo the past. But you can learn from it to overcome the future. Don’t let your dark past obstruct you from seeing the beauty of your future.
Don’t lose focus. You see, when you are focused, everything within you moves in the direction of your goals and dreams. Maintain your momentum.
This has been a year of soul searching and releasing. I have learned that I need to let people go and their problems that could lead to me not having peace in my home. I have learned I can’t help everyone and that is ok. I have learned to help people but don’t put myself in debt or let it stress me out more than it should. You can’t help people if you are running on empty on the inside.
I am grateful for my husband who is my biggest supporter. He let’s me be me, let’s me do what I feel is best for me and even though we are one we still give each other space to be ourselves. For that I am eternally grateful.
I am thankful for the blogging tribe I have met in person & online they have been so awesome with advice and letting me know it is ok to take my time when it comes to blogging, you won’t please everyone and everything is a process don’t rush.
I have learned to appreciate meditation this year more than ever, just taking a day or two to get your mind mentally together does wonders. Whether you take a few minutes of each day to do it or get you a room in your home that is only for time to steal away and meditate. I extremely encourage people to learn more about making their own self care and healing products and time for themselves.
It doesn’t matter that some people are laughing behind your back or glad to see you fail, smiling in your face, while pretending to be your friend. You are not your mistakes, your failures, or your disappointments. Be aware things will happen that you are not prepared for.
Regroup, go back to the drawing board and comeback with a different strategy. You are more powerful than you realize! Dig in, challenge yourself and hold the vision.
