The Only Thing You CAN Control

Is Who You Are Within

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—.
It always amazes me how whenever you’re having a discussion about certain subjects like politics or religion, if you don’t think and feel how the other person thinks or feels..

Your wrong…

And… They will do anything to try to convince you that how they think or feel is how you should think or feel too ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

We are all taught to stand up for what we believe as well as to speak our own truths yet others will totally try to change how you feel about things and try to convince you that what they believe is right and what you believe is wrong….

hmmmmmm ๐Ÿค”

We all have the right to have an opinion, we all have the right to believe what we believe…

What we don’t have the right to do is to tell another how they should think or feel and we don’t have the right to tell someone that what they believe and or feel is wrong, yet alone try to convince them into believing that your way is the right and only way…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

If I see a flower in a field and say “what a pretty pink flower” and you think the flower is lavender… Does that mean I’m wrong and you’re right???

Nope

Cause we all see, hear and process things differently and that is totally OK!!!

We can’t control the weather, we can’t control the wind… The only thing that we control is how we feel within…

Arguing is a waste of time, it depletes your energy too… You can’t control how others think because they don’t think like YOU!!!

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿ’—

To Laugh At Oneself

Is Healthy


Hello World,

Since I threw my back out last week, I’ve had plenty of time to think and of course there’s been frustration, anger and disappointment because I’ve basically been flat on my back in bed for a week not able to do anything but rest (which I don’t do well) yet this morning when I woke up all I could do was laugh…. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜..

I write a lot about taking care of ourselves both physically and mentally yet here I am laying in bed laughing cause I did just the opposite ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฎ 

Yes it’s much easier to preach than to practice what we preach yet I sat in bed for the past few days being angry at myself for getting myself hurt and frustrated cause I literally can’t do anything yet .. hmmmm??? ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

There really isn’t any rhyme or reason to why we are so much harder on ourselves then we are on others yet when we can stop, pause, take a look at the situation and instead of getting angry at ourselves or at the situation we can sit back and laugh… 

That’s when you know your in a good place…

Cause seriously once it’s done it’s done and all we can do is keep on moving forward and do whatever we need to do to get going again ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Don’t allow any setback or situation get you stuck in a yucky place… Stop, pause, breathe and laugh cause laughing truly does heal everything ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‚

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Hello World

“Change is tough at first… Messy in the middle… But Empowering at the end!!!” – Shine 

…………………….

This morning while reading my daily motivation I realized that every single one that I’ve read for the past week has been about changes (no such thing as coincidence right lol) ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™„..

I (as we know) am embarking on a new chapter in my life and although scary it’s exciting too and while having coffee this morning a friend asked me how it can be scary and exciting at the same time.. ๐Ÿ™„ which got me to thinking and I just smile and said it’s all in how we process it.. Its definitely a mindset thing๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‰

We are all “Masters of Transition” we deal with changes every day… It’s all in how we process them so they don’t get in our way… 

Change is very good for you it helps you bloom and grow.. It helps you move on to better things.. It keeps you on the go… 

So don’t be afraid of changes and remember all that you’ve been through… embrace the changes one by one cause change is good for you!!! 

Happy Halloween World ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ˜‰

Scared vs Fear

There Really Is A Difference

Hello World, 

This morning I was reading a comment my friend Cobs (@thecobweboriumemporium) made about my post yesterday and it really hit home because she reminded me that there is a difference between being scared and fear… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Yesterday in my post I said that it was a tad scary knowing that my journey and a new chapter in my life was about to begin and it is true… 

It’s something new and something I’ve never done yet there is no fear at all because I know I can always go home and my reasoning for getting the bus was also because if I pull into somewhere that just doesn’t feel right I could just get in the drivers seat and drive off without having to go outside๐Ÿ˜‰ 

I get so many people that ask me if I’m afraid and or don’t get how a female could travel around the country in a bus ALONE without being in total fear.. Yet Being that I listen to my gut and or follow my instincts I’m actually very excited and not fearful at all. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค—

Fear is a noun and can also be used as a verb. Scared is an adjective. Fear is an emotion. Scared is the state of experiencing fear like being spooked at a haunted house ๐Ÿ˜จ Fear is usually long term and much harder to push past than the temporary feeling of getting or being scared.. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

As my friend Cobs said… Being scared is your bodies way of telling you to be aware and to take a look around and make sure no dangers there… 

So when you’re starting something new and you feel you can’t go on… Push past that scary feeling and keep on moving on โ˜บ๐Ÿค—

Have a beYOUtiful day world and thank you Cobs for the inspiration my post today.. Love you huge my friend ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

It’s OK To Do Nothing

When Nothing Is What You Want To Do


Hello World

Today when I woke up I actually felt so relaxed that I didn’t want to get up and do anything and I immediately started self-criticizing myself for not wanting to do anything but relax all day ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

My mind immediately went to that you’ve got things to do get up now mindset ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค” and then my neighbor ask me why I wasn’t working in the bus today which led me to believe that I should get off my butt and do something yet my little voice within kept saying NO ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Why we do that I don’t know and I do know that I am my worst critic yet I also know that it’s OK to just BE… I didn’t have anything pressing that needed to get done..I’m not on a time frame and It’s a beautiful perfect fall day to just enjoy the day after an all night torrential downpour and I decided that rather than working on the bus I was gonna just chill.. ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ

I sat outside listening to the rustling of the leaves in the wind and feeling the perfect fall breeze and said NOPE not gonna do anything today ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‰ and yet went back and fourth in my mind for a while until I said NO.. Chill day lol๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‰

Moral of this story: Don’t be so hard on yourself on days you don’t want to do anything.. As long as you don’t have anything pressing the do… Sit back, relax and do you cause you are worth it ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Have a beYOUtiful day world๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

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’—
