We all like what we like and want what we want, but does it make you feel good at your core or just the surface?
Have you had a rough day and decided to splurge at your favorite store? Purchased the new Jordan 1’s or even eat a 5 course meal at an exclusive restaurant? It feels good to release those emotions, but how long does it last? You still end up with the same sadness, pain and frustration.
When we don’t have true happiness within our hearts or at our core, none of it truly matters. We need to dig deep for happiness and not just at surface level. I hope that resonates with us all. Happy Wednesday!
You have to be true to self and love the person that you are. Any one that values you and is interested in building a future with you, Will step up to the plate. Make sure that You are ready as well. Be ready for vulnerability and to be Loved like you deserve. Enjoy the journey!
They are cute, handsome, adorable, and so cool but when does that shift happen? The shift of them becoming a threat? A Target? A menace? My heart aches for the grieving Mothers who had to bury their sons due to injustices that have lingered for centuries. Enough of turning the other cheek. It’s time for many to admit that Wrong is Wrong. If you can say that “All Lives Matter” then, you “Should” be outraged as well. This is not a hatred post, it’s a MY SONS’ Reality Post. #nicolecherise #mysons #godson #socialinjustice #justiceforgeorgefloyd
Of course, there is another aspect of what’s posted on this picture. Many people have enjoyed the family time by being entertained with Tic-Tok, games, binge watching movies or shows etc… However, only a few truly have that sense of Calmness.
These people accept what’s happening, take precautions, but refuse to let the Pandemic get the best of their lives. I feel this way about what one of my best friends. Anytime we chat she has this calmness to her. Now, that doesn’t mean that the pandemic hasn’t caused plans to change or be postponed due to the current bans but she’s doing an amazing job by continuing ON.
Unfortunately, I too, struggle with the events that are taking place. I’m almost 9 months pregnant and anxious for the next few weeks. I’m mainly home, so I’m developing cabin fever and it truly has had an effect on my emotions, but Safety for me and the little guy has to come first.
What are the things you’ve noticed about people during this Pandemic? What have you noticed about yourself?
I struggle with this a lot because I’m still at a place in life where other’s thoughts and words matter and can affect my day. It truly shouldn’t and I’m aware of that and I wear my heart on my sleeve so it doesn’t help.
One thing that my therapist and many others say is that you can’t let others have control over your emotions. No one, should be able to control my feelings, how I think, or why I make the decisions that I do. So, with that being said, I share with you ways that may help if you struggle with this issue like I do.
Don’t take EVERYTHING personal.
Most talk a big game, but can’t follow their own advice.
They are HUMAN not a higher power.
I’m sure there additional ways that can help but those are my top reminders for now. What about you?
Do you have techniques on ways to protect your peace?
Let’s keep this as a reminder. Kids have their OWN identity. They learn different, move at their own pace and have interest they may differ from yours. Encourage them, concentrate on their gifts vs their shortcomings. Thanks! From a fellow parent 😁
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!
