Where is the love Wednesdays: no compliments for being an adult

Hey everyone!

Happy Wednesday! Today’s topic is “no compliments for being an adult”. 
It’s sad to me when I hear people brag about things that should be a given, such as having a job, a place to live, vehicles and a for having a positive attitude. What’s even more sad is when people talk about a prospect mate based on “being an adult” as if it’s a luxury. Is this truly what our society has come to? I remember a time where people would brag about their mate being doctors, lawyers and them driving a Mercedes Benz etc. Now the bragging is: “Nikki he has a job and drives a car”. I understand that we all have different lifestyles and situations, but after 30 years old that’s not a big deal. I am not trying to be a “Debbie downer” on anyone but I just wished it was more to talk about when others are finding a mate. 
What are your thoughts? Is this truly what it’s like in the dating scene now? Have you found yourself doing this as well? Speak on it.

Motivational Monday’s: be Brave

  
At some point in our lives we will hit that brick wall. We may feel like there are no corners to turn or no way to climb ourselves out. This feeling may be due to illness, death, relationship issues, financial burdens, jobs etc.. Things don’t just go away however, be brave enough to buckle your boot straps and to face your problem head on. Will things be easy? Of course not but it won’t break you. We are stronger than we think. Please believe a shift will come your way, stay strong.

As I type, I’m experiencing leg pain after a day of feeling great and being on the move. That is the unpredictable aspect of dealing with MS symptoms. However, I’m still happy and won’t let this “hiccup” keep me down. 

I shared the link above because it makes me happy to see celebrities open up about either their own battles with illness or express the experiences of their loved ones.

Motivational Monday’s: you have to encourage yourself!

Encourage yourself my dear friends. 

People will try their hardest to belittle you and make you feel worthless but you have to repeat to yourself : I Am Better and I will be Great. 

Self affirmations truly go a long way. If you repeat encouraging words to yourself multiple times a day, eventually great things will come your way. 

So take back yourself and don’t let others tell you any different. Be Victorious friends, failure isn’t an option.

Self love is the best love

Feel good Friday’s: pushing through life’s obstacles 

Hi all!

When I think about all that I encounter daily, what gives me the most humbling experience is pushing through challenges. Let’s face it, life is and can be unfair. Challenges will arise in your life and some will make you feel like you hit a brick wall. So what do you do? Keep going!

As a MS Warrior, I have days where walking is a difficult task to do. I’ve cried, been angry and had self-pity MOMENTS but they can’t last long. If we feed those negative vibes and energy to ourselves, it will be our new cognitions. So do what you need: pray, meditate, yoga, watch a comedy, go to the gym to blow off steam, write, call someone, speak to a support group or me *wink*, etc. You need to do whatever it takes for you to transition out of that obstacle. 

  
This is a collage that I made last night and shared to social media.  Could you believe that just three weeks ago I couldn’t use my left leg efficiently and had a limp? Believe it friends, I’m just like you, a fighter. We have to claim victory because we CAN’T lose. 

Keep your chin up and head in the game. No worries, things will get better. Keep going. 

Enjoy your day and Happy 4th of July weekend!

Where is the love Wednesday: stepping out of the box

Hey all! 

In today’s, “Where is the love Wednesday”, I want to discuss stepping out of the box.

Many times I hear people say that they are tired of the types of people they have been dating or I only attract this type of person blah blah blah. Ok, my two cents, if someone finds you attractive that’s exactly what it is, now the type that you give your time and energy to are on you. 

I’m sure many won’t agree but unfortunately the truth hurts. You can’t say I attract only crazy people when that’s not true. You are attractive to a quiet/reserved person, a scholar, an entrepreneur, etc. it’s who YOU decides who can take up your time.

My additional two cents would be to step out of the box. Date someone that you wouldn’t normally give a chance to. You never know what you learn from them and their culture. We ultimately need love, support and loyalty. You never know, that person could have been very close and worth it. In life we all take chances, stepping out of the box could be a great one!
