How to Find Your Most Productive Hours

Hello my sweet sweet friends.  Today starts the “How to get organized” Series.  Today is the first post of many that will be posted throughout October…so I hope you are excited, because I am.

Many people put off doing things because they just don’t feel motivated to do it.  They work long hours or they have a family that they need to devote time too, and soon you start to think…Do I really have time for my passion?  Can I really make the time to do what I love?  Well I’m here to tell you that you can…you just have to find when you are most productive.

 

For me, I’m more productive in the morning and early afternoon. This is when I’m more alert, and not so tired.  Night time, not so much, but then again, I work nights so I try and work around that.  Normally I schedule to write posts on my days off and while my son is in school, that way I can take a short nap in the afternoon while he is napping and on days that I work, I can sleep while he is in school, and I don’t have to worry about getting a post up that day because I know that I have to work that night.   

But it may be different for you.  You may be a night owl, and you may prefer to work nights and stay up and sleep during the day.  Whatever you like best, whenever you feel more motivated, when your energy level is at its highest, that is when you should do work because that is when you work best. 

To sum this up, look at when you are motivated, notice when your energy is highest, and look at when you are excited about your passion, and work then. You can make the time for your passion when you notice the hours of the day that you are more productive. That’s it for this post, until next time.

 

 

Question of the week:

When are you most productive?  And if you don’t know, re-evaluate your days and find when you feel most motivated to do anything…let me know how it goes.

How To Organize Your Life In a Month Series

Hello my sweet sweet friends.  How have all of you been.  We are going to have an organizing your life series talk because God knows I need it, and I’m sure someone else can use some helpful tips as well.  Now before we begin, I know that i have been a little MIA these past few months and honestly I just needed a break.  I finally have it to where I’m ready to pick this back up again, I decided to do that with a series.  This is just an introduction about what the series will consist of.  There are going to be a number of tips to help you all, including myself, get back on track with our lives.  These are to help you feel less stressed and more on top of your game.

 

i (1)

As parents, students, employees, etc…we get caught up in life and sometimes the things in life can make it so things are thrown off and things get messy. For me, life has been hectic.  I’ve felt uninspired, unmotivated and just a little bit sad.  I turned 28 at the beginning of September and I’ve been just doing a re-evaluation of my life because I feel that uncertain with how I want my life to turn out.  I want to do yoga atleast twice a week, and I want to read and I want to spend more time with my child and to spend more time with God, and I just feel I haven’t been able to do that in such a long time. I feel like there isn’t enough hours in the day and I feel so unorganized. 

Sometimes I feel so frustrated, sad and uncertain that I cry because I don’t know which direction my life needs to go.  So I need this series as much as the next person and my hope is that atleast someone will get something out of this, and that we will know ourselves just alittle bit better. This will be a series of tips that will be talked about through out the month. And since it is”Mental Health Awareness Week,” I will add in a little bit of mental health issue tips as they go with the topic.  Hope you all enjoy and lets have a great week and month 🙂

 

Please keep people in your prayers at all time.  As we know, something bad happened again, and I just want you to remember that prayer can help even if you feel like it doesn’t.  We may not know why things happen, but we do know that bad things will happen to good people; it’s not fair, or right but we just have to keep praying and never stop spreading the Love of God to the world.

Remembering God’s Peace

Hello everyone…long time…but we are back with an inspirational message for all of you. This message has to do with what is going on and hopefully someone will feel at peace soon. I really felt led to share this message with all of you, instead of my usual motivational posts, because this is so important.  I hope you all get something out of it.  And let God lead your hearts.

So many times we forget the peace of the Lord.  We forget that he is the almighty.  Why do we forget that?  Because we are so focused on the here and now and the problems or trials that we are facing right now.  We want our peace to come from us, or from our friends and family but to be honest…it can’t.  Our peace can not come from others…our peace comes from the Lord. There’s a song that I want to share with all….and when I share it, please read the lyrics and just reflect on God’s peace and truth.

 

 “What A Beautiful Name”     (feat. Kim Walker-Smith)                                                           

Verse 1: 

You were the Word at the beginning
One With God the Lord Most High
Your hidden glory in creation
Now revealed in You our Christ

Chorus:

What a beautiful Name it is
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King

What a beautiful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

Verse 2:

You didn’t want heaven without us
So Jesus, You brought heaven down
My sin was great, Your love was greater
What could separate us now

Chorus:

What a wonderful Name it is
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King

What a wonderful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

Bridge:

Death could not hold You, the veil tore before You
You silenced the boast, of sin and grave
The heavens are roaring, the praise of Your glory
For You are raised to life again

You have no rival, You have no equal
Now and forever, God You reign
Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name, above all names

Chorus:

What a powerful Name it is
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King

What a powerful Name it is
Nothing can stand against
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

Bridge again:

You have no rival, You have no equal
Now and forever, God You reign
Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name, above all names

Chorus:

What a powerful Name it is
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King

What a powerful Name it is
Nothing can stand against
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

                                   

This song has been my song for the past month or so.  It’s so beautiful and there is so much peace in this song. God is the God of everything, and no matter what you go through, he is there with you all the way.  What A Beautiful Name it is –This is the youtube video…if you have time, please go and listen to it and remember that God’s name, is powerful.  He has been through so much, he has gone through more than you could ever imagine and still he is all powerful. He thought his father forgot him, he cried out to his father too because he was scared and didn’t know what he was to do, but still he trusted his father.  He created this world, and even if you are going through trials and hard times right now, remember that he knows what you are experiencing and he has not left you.  

 

Please pray with me:

“Lord, I ask that you be with all those who are going through something scary right now. I ask that you fill their hearts with your peace. Lord show them who you are and protect them. For they may be scared, and they may be doubting your truth, your existence, your presence, your promises, and all that you are…but you lord are the almighty. You love them no matter what and you are their peace and strength. I ask that you be with them every hour, every minute and every day of their lives. I ask that for all of us that are not going through these frightening times, that you show us how blessed we are to never take things for granted. Bring us all together and let us all pray for one another and the safety and peace of those who are going through all of these scary times. I ask all this in your name…Amen.” 

 

Disclaimer:

If you do not believe in God, then I ask that you respect those who want or need to hear this, and that you just search your heart and thank him that you are alive. And I’ll pray for you.  If anyone needs prayer, leave your requests in the comments and I will pray for you.  God loves you whether you believe in him or not.

4 Reasons why Self-Care is a Practice

Hello my sweet sweet friends. In the past year, into this year, the trend it self care and people wanting to just get their mind, body and souls in check…but what people forget to tell you is that self care is a practice, just like anything else.   Today we will be discussing self care and why I feel it’s a practice first, before anything else. Let’s get started.

 

Self-Care

 

 Untitled design (6)Start small.   Self care is a practice, and when you practice anything, you want to start small right.  If you want to be a runner, you are not going to just jump right and in and do a marathon…unless you are that ambitious lol…but no, you are going to start small, maybe run around you town, or run a mile or something, something to just get you into it and not overwhelm or hurt you.  Self care is the same thing.  You want to start small and just ease yourself into.  If you are not the type of person to take time for yourself, this may be hard, so start small and work your way up.

Untitled design (7) Do it over and over and over again until you are good at it.  With the concept of starting small, you want to keep doing it over again, until you are good at it.  This is so you can see the progress you are making each time you do it.  You may not see a huge progress if you do it once, and then stop, you have to continue to do it, so you can continue to grow and see the progress you are trying to attain. 

Untitled design (8) Don’t feel guilty.  You don’t or shouldn’t feel guilty for taking time out for yourself once a day or once a week.  To be honest, I don’t feel it’s right for someone to get upset with you for putting your health (which includes, the mind, body and soul) first.  Something that I started doing this year, is if I need time for myself and my husband wants to spend time with me, I tell him, I need some time for myself, and once I’m done, I will spend time with him.  

 

It might sound selfish to some people, but it’s something I have to learn to do because I do get stressed easily and I do have high anxiety, so I need that time; and sometimes, you know, I do feel guilty, but I have to learn that my health comes first. You have to learn to be alright with putting yourself first sometimes, and no one has the right to tell you that it’s not ok. Your health is important and you, your friends and family will benefit from you having a peace of mind.

Untitled design (9)My #1 basic form of self care-SLEEP.   We all need 8-10 hours minimum of sleep, even if we feel we can do everything with getting little sleep and lots of coffee (believe me guys, I’ve tried that in the past two weeks, and last night my body just shut down and I had to go to bed early).  Guys, caffeine only works for so long and then you crash.

 

 Even if you have a lot of caffeine or energy drinks or whatever, eventually your body is going to just shut down because it’s tired.  So try your best to get enough sleep each day, even if it’s telling your spouse that you are just so tired, that you need to take a 2-3 hour nap or if you are a teen mom (or dad), seeing if you have a friend or a relative who could watch your child(children) so that you can get sleep.  Your health will benefit from the sleep you get.

 

Self-Care is a journey, an investment and a practice within yourself

Self-Care (2)

 

The purpose of self care is to take some time to put your own needs before others.  To give yourself down time, to think, to take time to reset your mind, body and soul.  Self care in an investment, a practice, and a journey.  Invest the time into yourself because you deserve it and no one has the right to tell you otherwise. 

 

Question for the week:

I love the concept of self-care being a practice first before anything else, what do you all feel about this concept?  Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Be the Person You want to Become

Be the Person You want to Become

Hello my sweet sweet friends. How has your weekend gone?  Mine has been pretty good…did a lot of reading, which is why there were no posts up last week…I was busy reading 2 books and I’m on my third one. Gotta have that me time even if it’s for a week or an hour. But I’m back this week with some posts.  I had topics planned but again, I just felt like I needed to talk about this topic.  Also let me know if you all like these types if topics because I love talking about them, and if you have any topics you would like me to talk about, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

And if any of you don’t know, I read every comment, and I try to respond to every single one, even if it’s a day or two or later after you post, I always respond, so if any of you were wondering, yes I respond…plus I love reading all of your comments, even if you disagree with me, I love reading them because you are all amazing.  Ok let’s stop rambling…let’s get started LOL

 

BELIEVE IN THE PERSON YOU WANT TO BECOME

 

So I was on youtube, and I was watching this video and something this person said really stuck with me…”Be the person you want to become.”  This to me sounds so great, because I’m always in yoga pants, leggings and a sweatshirt, because I work nights, I just don’t get home til late in the morning, and I’m ready for bed; but I also want to make this blog the best it can be, and have the motivation to share with all of you some amazing content…so it would make sense that if I want to do that, I would dress the part right? How many of you have this dream to become something but you don’t think that the way you dress matters?  Me…I’m not going to lie. So today I’m going to share with you 2 main ways you can do this:

 

  1. A power product.  A power product is whatever makes you feel amazing and like a boss..some examples are: coffee, heels, a certain pair of pants or an outfit or a dress, getting your nails done (finger and toenails), hair…pretty much anything that makes you feel powerful, like you can accomplish anything.  

  2. Act the part.  So if you want to be a business woman, act the part…read books, go on interviews, shadow a business woman, watch videos…whatever you do…see how they act, and then in your own way, act the part.  People always say, “fake it til you make it.”  If you want something bad enough, work towards it and you can achieve it.

That’s all I have for you today.  “Be the person you want to become”…and make that person fabulous! 

Question for the week:

5 Ways to Remind You of Your Dream

5 Ways to Remind You of Your Dream

Hello my sweet sweet friends.  So going off with the theme of believing in yourself and making things happen for yourself, today we are going to talk about believing in your dream.  So dreams are really important, no matter what any one says.

I love dreams and I love having dreams.  I’m a mom and I will always tell my child to have a dream and to go for it because I feel that dreams are just perfect. It gives you something to strive for and if you don’t get your dream, that’s ok as long as you never gave up completely on it and you tried to accomplish it. I’m going to share with you 3 ways how you can make sure that your dreams stays in your mind; so if you would like to know….just continue reading 🙂

 

Untitled design (3)

  1. Write it down. Writing your dream down can help you remember what you are working towards.  Write it down everywhere; (In your bathroom, in your room, in your car, in your planner, etc)  Keep it in your mind so that you can work your hardest towards it.

  2. Know that Failure is NOT the end/ Set Backs WILL happen.  You are probably going to fail.  You will probably let people down, let yourself down, feel pressure because this is your dream, but you can’t focus on it right now…that is ok.  Failing is not the end of the world, and it’s not the end of your dream.  Keep working towards your dream, no matter how many set backs there are are, keep at it.

  3. Whatever you set your mind on, YOU can achieve.  Law of attraction.  Remember my post I did this week, remember that, because that will be the motivation that will help you in your journey of accomplishing your dream.  If you focus on it, and not let the setbacks get you down, you can achieve it…I PROMISE!

  4. There is a time and a season for everything.  There is a time where your dream will take off. If it’s not taking off right now…don’t panic and get upset, because it may not be your time…but I promise…your time is coming.  Don’t give up…keep pressing towards your goal…your dream will come alive.

  5. Believe in YOURSELF and Know you are NOT a failure.  I personally feel that this is the most important thing to remember.  If you don’t believe anything else I’m saying or you don’t care about anything else I’m saying or you just skim over this post…remember this…YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE AND YOU NEED TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF…IN ORDER FOR YOUR DREAM TO FLOURISH.  NO ONE IS GOING TO BELIEVE IT FOR YOU….SO YOU NEED TO BELIEVE IN YOU.  

 

So I hope that you all got something out of this.  Just remember…this is a journey and your dream will come true if you believe in it, and you believe in yourself. Just so you all know…my dream is to have a website and a business that has to do with self development, self awareness because that is what this blog is all about and this is the journey that I’m on right now and I love this journey, I love the person I’m becoming and I’m believing in this dream because I’m passionate about it and I hope that you can notice my passion for this topic through my posts. I want to encourage people to live the life they have always dreamed of and I’m with here with all of you…just learning about life.

The Power of “I Am”

The Power of “I Am”

Hello my sweet sweet friends. So before I go into it, I really want to share this. So for this blog post we are going to talk about  Law Of Attraction. So basically law of attraction is “whatever you focus all your attention on, you will eventually receive or get.” So lets say you want to become a doctor…if you put all your focus on becoming a doctor, you do really well in college, you do all your internships, you do great on your tests, you get into medical school, etc…eventually all the work you put into it, you will eventually get…right…so eventually you will become a doctor…So I was on pinterest looking up some inspiration for this blog post, and the first quote that popped up was Mark 11:24. So this is a bible verse for anyone who doesn’t know.

So this is what it says:  (New International Version) “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” I think this is so interesting, because obviously these go together and who knew that God knew what law of attraction was! Like this is mind boggling…I mean who knew? LOL…So,  I think this is really cool.  Sorry, just fascinated how the bible relates to life.  Anyway, so in this post, we are just going to go with what I’m thinking because I didn’t really have this one planned out lol. 

Untitled design (1)

 

To me, law of attraction really works.  I always believe that whatever you set your mind to, you can achieve and I still believe that to this day. When you decide that you want to do something, and you work for it and don’t give up, you will eventually see the results from it.  Some people don’t believe this, but to me, it’s one of those motivational goals that just helps put things into perspective.  It’s also a great feeling when you realize that all your hard work has finally paid off. Tell yourself “I Am the boss of my company, I Am the best mom I can be, I Am a doctor, I own my own business, I Am beautiful, I Am amazing, I Am a great friend, I Am a boss girl, etc”  Instead of hoping for it, tell yourself as if it is already happening, because then you will strive and work towards that, and once you believe it, then the actions you take towards it will reflect the fact that you believed it. The power of “I AM” is just amazing because it can be the difference between hoping for change, believing the change and actually working towards it or feeling it instantly.  Once you do all of this, then you will receive the reward and the feeling that you always wanted.  Whether it’s physical, spiritual, mental or emotional, the power of “I Am” can make a huge difference in your life.
