It’s Empowering To Be You
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗
Yesterday I was reading an article about how people tend to have a “Blank Check” personality and especially women.. and it really hit home with me then later in the day a little boy that I babysit told me he loves me cause I’m always the same Auntie Ricci 🤔🙄🤔..
We all do tend to have different personalities yet why???
We are different at work then we are at home… We’re different when we go shopping than we are when we go out on the town… We’re different with our friends in person than we are with online friends…
We tend to put different masks on many times throughout the day and although I know our actions must match the situation, we don’t have to change “Who” we are, yet we do.
I will be the first to say I have a sailors mouth haha yet I also know when to let it flow and when to curb it..
Yet I am still the same Ricci whether I’m using my sailors mouth or not 🙄..
My point is…
Just like a flower doesn’t compare itself to others in the field..
Always be who you truly are cause it’s empowering to be real!! It doesn’t matter what others think or what they say or do… The most amazing thing you can do for yourself is to always be true to you!!😁
Have a fantabulous day world 💗
This morning while I was walking my dog, I heard the prettiest bird singing and it made me stop for a moment and just listen to all the sounds around me..🙄🙄..
The birds singing, the wind lightly blowing through the leaves in the trees… The little things…
And it made me think about all the little things we take for granted 🙄🤔..
Life is busy yes…
Yet we tend to get so wrapped up in it, especially this time of year, that we forget to stop and smell the roses so to speak… 🤔
We forget to notice all the little things that are so beautiful..
Like the sound of children playing…
A warm and gentle smile we get from a passing stranger..
The sound of the wind blowing through the trees…
The early morning birds singing…
The beauty that surrounds us every day that can truly make us smile…🐝🌹🐦..
Today if only for a minute…
Stop and smell the roses..
Maybe not literally, yet take that pause to just listen to the silence… Notice all the beauty that surrounds you.. Then take a big deep breath and smile… 🤗💗..
Believe me it will change how you handle the rest of your day!!!
Have a fantabulous day my friends 🤗🌹
A friend of mine that is embarking on a new life journey was having a difficult time and we discussed how scary it is and at the same time how empowering it is once you actually do it… 🤗🤔🤗🤔..
She called me this morning to thank me for giving her the strength to do it and when I told her that I didn’t give her the strength or actually push her that she had it all along, she reminded me that sometimes when one doesn’t feel they can do something and someone helps them see that they can…
That too is empowering for both.. and she’s right…😮😊..
When we guide or help someone feel empowered, we empower ourselves too.. and even if we haven’t actually done it yet, seeing another do it that you’ve helped, gives us the strength to do it too!
Change can be intimating and very scary too… Yet once you actually do it you become a strong and confident you!!!
Have a fantabulous day world 💗
For the past month or so every morning when I got up I would get big time butterflies in my stomach and for the past week it didn’t happen at all 🤔
Until today 😮 this morning there was a huge colony of butterflies in my stomach as I walked towards the bus 😮🙃😮 and I immediately started laughing because it hit me as to why it was happening 😮.
Since I brought the bus home and started converting it… Every morning I got excited about what I was going to be doing in the bus that day…
Excitement butterflies 😄😄
And each day as I watched the transformation take place the butterflies went from tiny ones to the massive colony that is in my stomach today and it’s because the bus is almost done and my dream and journey is literally right around the corner 😱😱😱.
Am I excited? Yes!!
Am I a tad scared? HELL YES I AM!!!!
This is A HUGE life change for me…. Something I’ve never ever done in many ways and yet it’s also been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember 😮😮
Life keeps moving no matter what and life changes happen too… Yet if changing gets to scary, we allow the fear to takeover what we want to do…
So do not let fear stop you from living all your dreams… Cause it will be very scary at first yet after you do it you’ll realize it wasn’t as scary as it seemed😮🙃😮.
Have a fantabulous day world 💗🤗
Your life is a story of transition…
You have to end a chapter…
Before you can move on to the next…
Goodnight Universe 💗🤗💗
Doesn’t Have To Be Boring
For the past week being that I was immobile from hurting my back, I’ve had a lot of time to contemplate why we get so easily bored with our lives 🤔🙄🤔
Then this morning it hit me….😮😮
Before the loss of my son and even moreso.. Before I became an empty nester.. my life was pretty cut and dry… Wake up, take a shower, get dressed, have my coffee, get the kids up and ready for school, take the kids to school, go to work, have lunch, go back to work, pick up the kids, make dinner, help with homework, get the kids situated for bed, blah blah blah…😥😥😥
And that was just Monday thru Friday… On Saturdays I would always have a day of fun with my kids and on Sundays I’d get everything ready for the coming week..🤔 hmmmmm???? Repetition for years and years and we wonder why we get bored with our lives…🙄🙄🙄
We all have certain responsibilities yet it doesn’t have to get so repetitive that we wind up being bored…. Living the same humdrum day over and over…
Mix up your day… Add one thing to your daily routine that you love to do… Take a shower the night before so you have more time in the morning… Plan at least one day a week where you dedicate it to having a no work at all day…a day of fun… Go for a walk, have a picnic at a park…
Our days don’t have to get boring and repetitive… yet it’s up to us to mix it up… 😁🤗
Have a beautiful mixed up day world 🤗
This weekend give yourself time…
Goodnight Universe 💗
