m pretty lucky to have a Target just a few minutes down the road. It means that I can pop over whenever I need to for those few special items only they sell. I try to be focused and quick, getting in and out before my eyes start to wander.
Ever just have that moment when you realize you are stuck in a rut? Whether it be work, daily routine, personal style or relationships.
With a life in constant motion, we often don't give ourselves time to realize what is going on. Yet our lives feel almost like we're trying to run through muck. It's hard, draining, and if you take a moment to look at yourself, it's messy.
Have you ever looked into the Power of Believing? There is so much to learn. Everything from prayer to Law of Attraction + all that's in-between.
In the past 15 years I've come to realize a few things. The biggest being, I love learning and reading about everything out there to help myself and others. I honestly can't tell you the number of webinars, books, and programs I've gone through because I lost track.
There is so much information available to us to use as tools to help us.
I'm talking about the times when we are going about our merry way then BAM!
a moment which makes you cringe and wince, pops into our heads derailing us from the present and leaving us to clean up the mess of a past we can't change while figuring out how to leave it behind in order to move on.
You know that feeling. It is like you are caught in slow motion, unable to take action for fear of the "what if" or "not enough" These two forms of fear create battles which distract us from taking meaningful action
I was sitting on the couch with my daughter this past weekend, and a vacuum commercial came on. It was a minimalistic house with clean lines, stark furniture, and one toy placed as if to say kids live here.
I sat down today to write about self-care and to break the belief that it's selfish. There are so many experiences we can get from this. Not to mention being a role model for what a healthy dose of caring for ourselves looks like.
That's when I wrote a thought that brought it all to light. Dispelling the idea
'm going to start with a bit of my story because it is very similar to many of the people I meet. You see, I saw mediating as a New Age practice that "woo-woo" people did. It made me uncomfortable just thinking about it! Although I was curious about people found these practices so helpful, I felt they were not for me.
Over the past month, there have been multiple occasions where moms have reached out to for advice. Their child is at a point of emotional turmoil, and as a parent, these women feel helpless, yet they want their child to be strong and see past the moment. It's a common theme of what should I do?
I know this struggle well! In fact, it also happened in our house this week, and I almost
Of course in an ideal world, everything flows smoothly. Our ups and downs are just moments in time. We have things to do, but there is no stress because everything that is happening is just as it should be.
Ahhhhh, can you just hear the birds chirping? The world is perfect!
Do you ever just wake up one day and realize the world has been screaming in your face? The worst part is you were totally sucked in until that moment.
You minded your own business, barely holding on to all the things you needed to do, and there was a tornado of noise swirling around sucking you deeper and deeper into things that are pulling you away from sanity.
I was recently in this tornado; I have no idea how long. It could have been days or months, it all seems to blur together. But, an outside force came, and it was decision time
That is what a card I have says. Thankfully I now know what it means to me, but for a long time, that was not the case. For 40+ years my [SILENT] answer was always "What the hell is THAT supposed to mean?"
I mean, aren't we all who we are? Who else could we be? And why do I need to be so damn fearless about it? I'm quite comfortable where I am. Ooo or what about the old, "Just Be Yourself!"
For some reason, that line got me even more upset. My [SILENT] reply "That would be great if I only felt confident with who I was!" Then I would feel that uncomfortable feeling like something was missing. What was I missing?
Ever since I was a kid, I hated New Year's Resolutions. There was so much pressure to come up with one. Everyone talked about them begrudgingly, with the "Have to, Need to or Should do" and if they weren't saying it, you could see it in their body language. Why would anyone choose to create one? From this perspective, it only breeds negativity.
