Listening to the wind blow, the ocean wave, smell of the sea and suddenly life seems so simple. When and why do we complicate our lives. Are we even capable of controlling the potential chaos? They say the tongue is an almighty sword. Who is “they”, because they were right. The sweet and tender words to scorn filled words all have a controlling aspect. What do we do to change repetitive cycles? The thing that I have learned is that sometimes you must sacrifice the feelings of others in order to save yourself. Funny how that works, huh? We let the words of others affect how we function and process. The truth is that we are giving away the power that we possess inside of us. Learn to feel the energy, pay attention to the signs, stop asking questions, remember that not only do people lie, they are not in tune with themselves enough to provide what you are requesting. Energy is a powerful thing. I don’t believe in fate, but energy is most intriguing. Electricity. There are people who you’ve met for the very first time but you feel as if you’ve known them forever. I will never attempt to know or understand everything about love of any type, but I do know that its remarkable. I think the mistake we make is attempting to understand love. Love is that long, deep, slow breath you take when frustration or passion have invited themselves to the party. Like a breath of fresh air, that moment when the eyes lock, the touch is reminiscent to a warm Sunday afternoon, the hug reminds you of fresh sheets straight from the dryer and…. You know that feeling. Intimacy. Power. Love. Just remember…Learn to feel the energy, pay attention to the signs, stop asking questions, remember that not only do people lie, they are not in tune with themselves enough to provide what you are requesting and last but not least, just live. Good night!
So I’ve decided to do a series of “clarity” moments each day this month.
I’ve realized that I am a sweet, stern, loving, controlling, passionate, strong, caring, dominant, endearing and loyal person. Yes, all of that mess. This also means that I am quite aware of all of my flaws which makes it easier to feel human.
You see, people have so many unrealistic expectations for others, but none of themselves. We have to learn that people will make mistakes and it’s up to us to forgive them. Don’t be so short sided that you can’t forgive a person. Life’s so short and precious we only have one choice…
- Love hard
- Kiss passionately
- Accept differences
- Appreciate differences
- Laugh and smile as much as you can
- Try something spontaneous
- Live like you love life
- Take the chances while you have them
Have a beautiful day and thank you, thank you, thank you for reading my thoughts!
Find me on social media 😍 I haven’t mastered Periscope or Snapchat yet, but I will!
Let me first start by saying… I am not feeling this semester! Like, seriously! It’s a ton of work, but I’m capable of it. It’s normal to just be over it, right?
See, instead of finishing my homework… I’m blogging. Ugh! What do you all do to stay focused on a day when you’re not in the mood or just tired? Music, food, text, coffee… Have your eyes ever been so dry from reading that the eye drops burn? 😂 Yes, that’s where I’m at now!
Ok, enough whining! The reality is, in my case Graduate School is necessary for my next professional goal. Do what it necessary to succeed! I can do this, remember how I just told you to be your own cheerleader? Time to break out the pom-poms!
It was so nice talking and having you all there to listen! Time to hit the books, but first I’ll grab a snack and some tea!
Until next time…
There are so many things that I can say about this subject, but I will keep it brief.
- Don’t take life to seriously, try to be silly once in awhile!
- Take time each day to appreciate the person you are!
- Don’t try to be perfect, be apologetically you!
- Make the changes in yourself that you desire from others!
- Stop pretending you’re ok, when you’re really aren’t.
- It’s ok, to not be ok.
- Please exercise and eat right (if you’re not already). Life’s to short to be unhealthy on purpose! (I’ll post a quick 30 minute workout and grocery list this week as well).
- If you find someone that loves you for exactly who you are, love them back. Love is beautiful! Be real.
- Be your own cheer leader.
- Ask for help if you need it!
- Create a daily ritual that sets the tone for your day!
- If you want to reinvent yourself, why not start today?
- Try something new
- Pay it forward!
- And last but not least, try to relax a little. Sometimes we overthink, stress and completely panic over things that may not matter in a week. Relax, smile, laugh and live!
I’ve added yoga to my life and it’s amazing how life changing it has been! It’s honestly a whole experience. It connects your mind to your body and believe me, it’s quite different to be connected with yourself.
Life delivers unexpected transformations. You begin to realize that some wants have become needs and you take chances more frequently. Stop waiting for it to happen and make it happen. Life’s too short. You never know the outcome, but try it. You may love it and find it unforgettable! 😘
The plan that you may have had for your life is somehow off track. Fix it! Remember being a teenager and thinking “as soon as I grow up….”. You thought you would have a career that would allow you live in different states and even countries, just to jet set and live life with no burden. Once you’re ready you decide that your going to get married and have 2.5 children and a dog with the white picket fence. This is after you finished jet setting 🙂
Strangely enough those things are well planned but rarely do they happen that way. This day has showed me how some do not quite appreciate their lives and grab life by the balls! No matter where you end up in life, its all about what you do with the time you are given. Be happy with where you are, and learn ways to become proactive instead of reactive. If you want more out of life, just push forward. Opportunities are out there, they just have to be found. I love to meet new people because they give me new perspective. Never think that you can not learn from all types of people. I enjoy picking the brains of great minds. Successful people drive me to be the best me. In order for me to be the best at my craft, I must do what’s necessary to perfect it!
On a daily basis we have a million things going on. How often do you take time to regroup? Do you have a method? I try to start my day with both light meditation and yoga. Sometimes with my husband and daughter. It allows me to balance my day prior to the daily hustle and bustle!
- Breathing exercises
- Cook breakfast
- Sit outside with a cup of coffee or tea!
- Just enjoy a few moments of silence!
