Sometimes we hit a brick wall. Sometimes it feels like the walls are caving in on us. Sometimes we don’t have many more places to run away to. Sometimes, the very thing that gives so much pleasure also gives a lot of pain. Sometimes we can’t help but wonder if that silver lining is EVER going to appear?
The hardships of it all and you just want ONE person who could understand. You want that person to get it but they don’t. Please Try not to blame them, it’s not their fault. Their story isn’t ours even if they play a role in it. They have their own issues to tend to and may not have the bandwidth to tackles yours as well.
No one is to blame. No one should feel shame. No one owes us anything. But we do owe it to ourselves to try with ONE step each day. Try to be kinder to ourselves. Try to show up for ourselves. Try to make moves for ourselves. Try to be the Favorite and Best version of ourselves.
Acceptance•Agreement with or belief in an idea, opinion, or explanation.•The action or process of being received as adequate or suitable, typically to be admitted into a group.
Do you find yourself aiming for acceptance by family, friends, your workplace or community? It’s truly not easy to keep up with. We truly need to Accept ourselves FIRST and all that it brings. We have to Know who we are and move through life accordingly.
We can’t assume that it came easy or free! Many of these people are living the life that we want to have but it took blood, sweat and tears to get there. These people failed many times, received one rejection after the other but didn’t give up.
Has this been you? Have you had a moment when you saw the CEO and their car? Or maybe that power couple on the ultimate baecation. Yes, it’s all beautiful and achievable. Just remember, what’s for you is for you and your time WILL come.
Continue to work hard so that you can play hard! Don’t give in and don’t give up!
While being in the third trimester of pregnancy, I’m exhausted, my body changes are starting to catch up and I’m almost at the point of being “done”. My fellow preggies Know what “Done” mean during that final stretch of pregnancy LOL.
During moments alone, I reflect on my reasons for continuing to strive for excellence. No matter what, I always divert back to my “why?” which is my Family. With the addition of another little person on the way, I don’t have room to give up or to lose.
What about you? When you start to have doubts, what is your “why?” that puts things back into perspective? Whatever it may be, never lose it. Keep it close to your heart so that on days when you feel like giving up or having doubts, it can pull you out of the hole.
Do whatever it takes. There are many ways to keep focus on what means the world to you. You can write it down in a journal, record a personal voice memo, create a vision board, the options are endless friends. You got this!
Hi all! I hope all is well for you and your families during this holiday season. I know many are ready for the festivities but also looking forward to what the new year may bring.
I had a chat with one of my friends about Goals that we want to achieve but some way or the other, we have not achieved them yet. Now, for many this could be devastating or even leave a person in a dark place, but I’m here to say: CHILL OUT with those thoughts.
I know it sounds like a broken record or even like the voice of Charlie Brown’s teacher to many of you when someone says to chill out when you’re feeling down. Life is a journey and we are going to experience bumps and detours. However, if we Know where we want to travel to, nothing can stop us even if we make pit-stops.
Please don’t quit on your goals. As I say this to you, I’m also reminding myself of the same. You got this, I got this, WE got this. Let’s go!!!! 😊
Something that weighs heavy on my heart is the term experience and what it means in our lives. We know the definition of experience means: practical knowledge, skill, or practice derived from direct observation of or participation in events or in a particular activity.
We tend to read literature of how to do something, or how to be better at something, but yet we still can feel lost. We tend to think we are inadequate if we don’t use the big words like the scholars, or if someone is older, we feel more of a subordinate.
Listen, forget all of that! We DO have experience. Rather, it’s parenting, marriage, a religious calling, technology, etc.. If you have done it for a while, then you are worth being listened to.
As I write this message to you, I’m talking to myself as well. We are capable of so much, but let formal education or our youthfulness get in the way. Don’t settle yourself short, you are wiser than you think.
One of the biggest lessons that I’m learning is that BALANCE is necessary. The Highs and Lows, the Sunshine and Thunderstorms, are Needed. I find that it keeps us grounded, we learn, we grow and it’s humbling.
Think of being back in High school. You might not have been the best English or Math student and no matter how much you studied, your test marks didn’t go above a “C”. However, one day you DID receive a high remark on a test. I don’t know about you, but I know that I felt like I was on cloud 9 when I finally scored a B or better! It was at that moment when we realize ok, this IS not my subject, but I will continue to give my all.
Don’t give in during the Lows and Thunderstorms of Life. It is NOT easy and requires a lot determination and strength, but you can do it. Clear your thoughts, have fun with some loved ones, write in your journal, and set affirmations. You got this!
Happy Motivational Monday! Through this journey… this is One of the BIGGEST lessons that I’m learning. I wear my heart on my sleeve, I dont take criticism well, I don’t like the feeling of rejection and more.
I’m not proud of these traits but they are apart of me. What I’m beginning to understand is that i DON’T need to take the little things personally. Someone doesn’t like a post? Cool. Someone gave a critique that I didn’t want to hear? Cool.
What I needed to understand is that I can learn from all of those experiences. Guess what friends? So can you! If you’re like me, this is no simple task, however, You are more than what lies on the surface. You are NOT a failure. The BEST of your story hasn’t been told yet! Hold on dear friends, we are in this together!
Happy Motivational Monday friends! As we all know in life we have to make choices. Some are easy while others can be very difficult. We have to learn to think thoroughly and critically. Usually inpatient and haste decisions can bring hardships later.
I can admit that MANY decisions I’ve made weren’t the best ones but I’m learning to accept it and figure out other alternatives. We also can grow from our past mistakes. There are no losers, simply developing WINNERS. Have a fantastic Monday!
