Balance

The Key To A Better Week

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—.

This morning I was reading an article about a corporation in India that actually has scheduled meditation breaks for all their employees and it made me wonder why we don’t do that too๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

When we go to work we may get breaks yet do we really take them to stop and breath or do we take them to chit chat, go run an errand or not take them at all and just continue working?๐Ÿค”

We rarely balance out our week cause we are so accustomed to just working working working and we wonder why by mid week we can’t wait for the weekend to get here and by Friday we’re burnt out๐Ÿ˜ฅ…

hmm makes no sense huh?!?

So my friends..

Don’t forget to balance your week with a little bit of play time too.. it will make your week a lot better and it’s good for your mind and body too ๐Ÿ˜

Have a beYOUtiful week world ๐Ÿ’—

Don’t Forget To Take A Break

It’s Really Good To Do

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’—

It always makes me giggle when I’m on a roll doing something, make plans to totally finish it the next day and then mother nature says…

“NOT”…๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

When I worked in corporate America, I always had to go go go and wouldn’t stop until I was done…

Which always stressed me out and wore me out as well..๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Since I got the bus home and made a solid decision to take my time and do it right, it never fails that whenever that go go go side pops up, mother nature and the universe do something that makes me have to slow down and take a break ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Yesterday I didn’t stop with the taping and painting on the bus all day long… It was a beautiful day and that go go go side of me flared up big-time…

By the end of the day my shoulders and arms were so sore that all I did was make a salad for dinner and plopped into bed…

The whole time thinking that today I was not gonna stop until it was finished… ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„…

Yeah right!

Woke up this morning to torrential rain that hasn’t stopped…

So I guess it was mother nature’s way of making me take a break hahaha so don’t forget to stop and take a little break or two.. cause anything that must get done will get done when it needs too ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜..

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’—

A Day To Rest, A Day To Chill

Don’t Forget Your Happy Pill

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

This past week has been pretty hectic for me, not to mention my cell phone is going bonkers (I really need a new one)

My Instagram is following and unfollowing all kinds of people, every poem I’ve written in the past few days has disappeared into the abyss and my blog keeps telling me I am putting in the wrong password… ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ค

Now I don’t know if it’s me or if it’s the universe telling me too take a chill pill, yet whatever it is I’m going to go outside and spend the day with a friend..

I’m not going to work on the bus (we’ll see how long that lasts hahaha) I’m not gonna write in my blog (after this post for the weekend) and I’m not going to worry about my stupid phone or the internet today.

I’m actually going to take my own advice ๐Ÿ˜ฑ go figure huh lol

So my friends….

Whatever this week has put you through, let it go…

Today is a new day…

Grab a friend, go outside or take some time and just chill… Whatever you decide to do.. don’t forget your happy pill ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

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—…

Give Yourself Permission

To Do Whatever You Want To Do

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—.

Yesterday when I woke up I had a list of things I wanted to do and had all intentions of posting my Hello World post… ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Yet after I made my coffee I decided I didn’t feel like doing a damn thing and so I didn’t ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜€

Around noon I started feeling a tad guilty for being totally lazy, knowing I had plenty of stuff I could be doing and that’s when it hit me!!๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Why the hell should I feel guilty for wanting to sit on my ass and not do a thing?

Did I have any pressing things that really needed to get done that day?

NO…

Was my sitting on my ass preventing someone else from getting something done?

NO…

So why did I feel guilty for wanting to have a do nothing day? ๐Ÿค”

It’s because we are programmed to go go go, do do do and not stop till we get stuff done!!!

SOOOOO NOT OKAY!!! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ 

Our bodies and our mind need relaxing and playtime too.. Don’t allow your head to make you feel guilty when you want to… Give yourself permission to relax or to play..Remember you are worth having a do whatever you want too day ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a fantabulous do whatever you want to day 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’—
