Take Time To Refresh

Take Time To Simply Be

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—.

We are so programmed to go go go all week long that once the weekend is here we either keep go go going or we are too pooped to do anything ๐Ÿค”…

So I want you all to do me a favor…๐Ÿ˜

Take one day this weekend to unplug, take a walk, go for a hike, read a book or do absolutely nothing…

Promise yourself that you will take time out for yourself to just breathe and simply be…

We all need it, yet we rarely do it…

So do yourself a favor and…….

Take time to refresh this weekend….

Take time to hug a tree…….

Take time to hear the birds sing…….

Take time to simply BE!!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜Š

Have a beautiful weekend my friends ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿค—…

The Meaning Of FINE

It’s Totally True Too


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned through the years is to always honor your feelings.. no matter what they are… You’re feelings are always valid!! They are your feelings and no one has the right to dispute them! ๐Ÿ™„

Today a friend gave me a beautiful compliment saying that she loves when someone asks me if I’m ok I say “No.. But I will be!” when I’m not and I don’t ever say “I’m fine!” cause there’s always something underlying with the word FINE..(I’ll tell you my definition of FINE in a sec haha๐Ÿค”… 

I’ve always been one on the up and up with however I’m feeling and ever since my son passed away, I’ve been even more of an advocate for everyone male and female to show their feelings and never ever hide them…. ๐Ÿค—…

Have you ever noticed that if you’re not doing ok or when someone says that they are FINE that there is usually something going on… For me FINE totally means 

F=Fuc*** Up, I=Insecure, N=Neurotic, E=Emotional… 

And while it may not mean all of those at the time… There is always something going on when you say I’m FINE otherwise we say… I’m ok..I’m great etc..๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Always be aware of how your feeling and never ever allow anyone to discredit how you feel cause they are your feelings and each and every one of them is valid… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

It truly is a gift to wear your feelings on your sleeve… 

Not everyone does it and everyone should… 

Cause bottling up how you feel is harmful to your health and to your well-being… 

Always know that it’s ok to show others how you feel… It shows that you are human.. It shows that you are REAL!!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—.

Have a fantabulous day my friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Watch For Burnout Cues

Take Some Time For You


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Have you ever noticed that during the winter season and the holidays we tend to get more burnt out then other times of the year? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”… 

We catch colds easier, we’re way more tired and stressed too.. is it because it’s cold out?? Is it because it’s Christmas and we’re rushing around like lunatics?? 

Or is it simply because we get so caught up in everything we want to get done before the end of the year that we forget to stop and take time out for ourselves? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

Almost everyone I know is either stressed because of Christmas, saying they don’t have enough time or money to get stuff done or they are sick as a dog with a cold or flu!! 

Hmmmmm ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” there really isn’t any difference between this time of year and any other time of year yet we make ourselves crazy and wind up getting burnt out, physically ill or both!! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜ท..

We truly are in control of our physical and emotional well being and our body does give us cues when we need to chill out and slow down… 

The problem is.. 

We usually don’t listen until it’s too late… 

We wind up exhausted or physically ill and then we can’t do anything… Which again makes everything worse!!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”..

No holiday, job or person is worth your getting burnt out or sick…

Listen to your body… 

Watch out for the cues… 

Slow down a little bit and remember to take care of YOU!! ๐Ÿ˜Š..

Silly Saturday Video day

Happy “Silly Saturday” World ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ™ƒ…..

Yeah I did it again… Really need to learn when to stop… Spent the day in the hospital for tweeking my back… Yet this time it wasn’t all my fault ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฎ…

There isn’t much that I’m afraid of yet my biggest girly ewwwwwww AHHHHHHH run fast phobia is a snake.. Which of course my daughter who knows that and is always playing pranks on me with rubber snakes knows that oh too well and on Thursday right after I told her my back was hurting cause I lifted something wrong, she sent me the second video and yep out it went lol lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ she didn’t do it on purpose it went out cause I jumped…. It was actually really funny cause I couldn’t stop laughing afterwards๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ..

Needless to say I decided instead of writing a poem today I’d try to make a Snapchat video without laughing and I actually succeeded โ˜บโ˜บโ˜บ.. I’ve always called Saturday “Silly Saturday” a day to have fun and be silly and hence the two videos above ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ™ƒ..

Taking care of ourselves both physically and mentally is so important to do.. So have a “Silly Saturday” and do something you love to do ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ

Have a happy Silly Saturday world ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

Self-Care

Needs To Be A Habit Too


Hello World 

“Sometimes The Most Important Thing In Your Whole Day, Is The Rest We Take Between Two Deep Breaths!” Etty Hillesum

Last night while reading the diary of Etty Hillesum, I came across the above quote and it made me think of how we constantly put everything and everyone before ourselves, sticking ourselves on the back burner with the “I’ll take care of me later” mindset and it hit me kinda hard๐Ÿค”

Family comes first, kids and significant others come first, our job and careers come first… HALT!!!!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿค” 

What about ourselves??? 

We make it a daily habit to take care of everyone and everything else yet the most important thing to do is to take care of ourselves and we totally slack on it and then wonder where frustration, resentments and all that other crap comes from! ๐Ÿ™„

Self-care is extremely important & should be a habit too… So start making self-care a DAILY habit & start taking care of you! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—
