Never saw a tree like this in Long Island. I thought they were mainly in the south. I guess I’ve been under a rock lol 🤣. Taking the time to admire its beauty during “fall” temps, gave me a sense of calmness. The way the leaves swayed as if it had its own dance moves gave me peace. To think the amount of storms the tree went through but it’s still standing strong. Lately, I have not been feeling my best (up and down with weather change/post partum body changes) but like this tree, I know I have to still show up and stay strong. I hope you can too my friends. Not every day we are super strong, but you continue to keep going, you got this 💪🏾.
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?
When the wounds are fresh, it hurts like hell. The Pain runs deep. At some point we have to decide if we want to heal ourselves or let the wound get infected, which could lead to serious consequences.
When we choose to heal, we apply medication to clean and protect the wound from infection and oh man it stings! Then we wrap it with bandages, sometimes the assistance of stitches may be needed, but we patiently wait for a scar to form.
How does this apply to the emotional wounds in our lives? The Pain is real and does feel physical for some cases. However, at some point we have to choose healing because the toxicity of the hurt we endured can ruin any chance of happiness or peace that we desire.
Sometimes we need assistance from a counselor/therapist to help with the deeper wounds that can’t just be wrapped up at the surface. It requires more work, resources and tools to find peace, but it IS obtainable.
The scar appears. The hurt isn’t fresh anymore, but the scar will always be a reminder of where we were and where we came from. We, Are Healed…..
Hi friends!!! I want to say thanks so much for all the love and support as my family is expanding! I’ve been very tired and haven’t been blogging like normal, my apologies 🤦🏾♀️ however, I do plan to get back on it soon and sharing videos as well. Thanks so much for your patience.
Also, this the reason why I haven’t posted my Tysabri treatment photos because I cannot receive treatment while pregnant. Ohhhh the New Journey! Catch you later folks!
Thanks for still being faithful readers and SM buddies
I didn’t truly understand this until after I hit 30. We interact with so many individuals from all walks of the Earth and we have to be careful of what we allow to take place in our lives. I’m a work in progress but I realize how much my Peace is worth. I hope you do as well. I know this can be difficult if you have family, friends and colleagues that have toxic/negative energies surrounding them but we can choose to step away or to not let it disturb us. Have you guys ever felt like this? Or experienced this?
I’m so guilty of this 🤦🏾♀️ but I’m a Work In Progress! And I’m sure I’m not alone with this. I have a big heart and would have the expectation that others should do what I do.. False! Friends, we can’t do this because not only is it draining, but it’s also not fair to others in our circle. Not everyone expresses the issues that they are battling, some need that isolation because they are trying to heal. Let’s continue to keep them in prayer during this season. Try not to think they are shading you or no longer love you. They do but they have to love themselves more.
Hate, a weak emotion, exhausting, mood killer and waste of time. We need more LOVE, it’s all about Love. If we concentrated on healing and resurrecting love, we could find Peace and Joy! Remove the negative energy, thoughts and actions from your life Today!
Each day we wake up in a blessing, a second chance to do better. Sometimes we can feel like we are up against a wall and it gets hard to breathe. Together friends, let’s choose to keep going and take a Deep Breath.
I know I haven’t been doing a lot of blog posts and there IS a reason for that! I am currently doing a lot of Self healing and reflecting. I realize that I can’t work from an empty cup and could burn out. I don’t want to fail, fall into a depression, I want to HEAL.
The beginning of this process is truly a challenge. I have to dig deep into the core of Myself. I’ve cried a lot, I’m angry, I’m sad… so full of emotions. But it IS for the good that this happens. With the baby steps that I’ve taken, I feel lighter and some stress levels has decreased.
So please be patient with me. I am ok, but will be even better soon. I have some plans up my sleeve and I look forward to executing them! I pray that you all are well and I thank you for your continued support! Cheers to SELF GROWTH!!!
