All About You

Hey everyone..so this will be really short….Just to let you all know…that 1: I will be posting…just been super busy…my toddler will be out of school in a week or two…I’m starting to potty train him…I’ve been working insane hours because I work with disability adults so I’ve been working every time they ask me to work and also we are in the process of decluttering our entire apartment, so I’ve had my hands full…and this is the third day without sleep…so sorry for the lack of posts, as soon as I balance things out…it will all be back to normal.

 

Take a Break (1)

Also…for today’s post….I would appreciate it if any of you could do three things for me:

 

In comments

  1. Tell me one thing how my blog posts have helped you…if they have?

  2. Tell me one topic you would want to see me talk about on this blog.

  3. If I were to write an e book about self reflection, self awareness and being mindful…having going through this process myself…would anyone be interested in reading it?  This is one question you don’t have to answer if you don’t want too…just getting some ideas down in my head.

I love you all so much….thank you for your support…and can’t wait to write more posts soon!!!! 🙂

Take Time To Be Grateful

Hi everyone and welcome back to another post.  How many of you take time to be grateful?  How many of you thank the universe, God, anyone… that you are still on this earth, that the grass is green, or that your children are healthy, etc?  Well, this is something I never used to do, until recently.  

Sometimes I forget to be grateful for different things.  I get so worked up in being perfect, or having everything be perfect, that I miss the fact that there are a lot of things to be grateful for.  Something that I have recently started is a prayer/gratitude journal.  This has helped so much in making sure that I appreciate the people in my life, the things I do, the places I see, the journey that God has put me on, and more. So how do I do this?

Today

How do I do this:

First I take out my devotional (Jesus Calling by Sarah Young) and I read the day’s passage.  I then take out my journal and I put the day up at the top,  and write my prayer to God.  I normally start off with “Dear God” and write; but that is a different topic…anyway on the back of the page, I take a sticky note and I write :Today I’m grateful for:  I write 1-3 things that I am grateful for that day.  This could be what happened the day before, what happened that night, the sky being blue, my child’s health…pretty much anything.  Why do I do this?

Why I do this:

Often times I feel we forget about things in our life.  We get caught up in family, friends, work, school, parenting, etc, that we forget about the things that we should be grateful for.  We should be thankful that we are alive or that we have a bed.  Writing down what I’m grateful for puts my mind into perspective that not everyone is as blessed as I am, that there are worse things out there then losing a friend, or having someone die, or failing that college exam that could get us in to a specific graduate school.  And I think we lose sight of it, so by writing what we are grateful for, we are being grounded and forced to see the good in any situation, whether bad or good; and I think that it’s amazing when you can see that.

Challenge for everyone:

So I want to challenge you all to find atleast 1 thing in each day  or each week that you can be grateful for and write it down…appreciate it and remember that there is always someone in the world who is going through something so much worse than you…there are always people who are not as fortunate as you are.

Ok that is all for today…hope you all have a wonderful day 🙂

It’s ok to take a break and breathe

Hello everyone…long time…I’ve missed you all!! So as some of you may know I took a break and I’m so happy I did.  I just really needed time to myself without blogging…I needed to focus on my family and friends and I’m glad I did.  So that is what today’s topic is going to be about because I feel alot of people are doing this, and some people are just making a fuss about it.  Ok here we go….

 

Take a Break

 

It’s ok to take a break and breathe.  I know some people feel like once you start something, you have to continue it everyday….but that is not true.  If you need a break from something to focus on yourself or whatever it is….take it.  Also for everyone who has understood why I took a break, thank you so much….I feel like the people who read my blog are really sincere amazing people and I love you all so much 🙂  Taking a break from something does not mean that you are weak, or stupid or anything like that, it just means that you need a break.  You need to take that time for yourself and that is ok.  In my opinion, I feel that it’s so important to take the time for yourself, and if what you are doing is just not making you happy, then you need to take that break and breathe. Just think about oceans…you know they have those waves that crash against the rocks, but then they take a break, and the ocean is calm and refreshing…that’s what our minds need to be like.

Ok so… Guys you have no idea how much I wanted to blog, but couldn’t because my mind needed that time to breathe and think and relax…but I am back now…inspired and just ready to create some great content for you all.

Something I’ve been thinking about a lot is “becoming a life coach.”  I have my bachelors in Psychology and my masters in health care administration, but through this blog, I’ve realized I love helping others and motivating others to live the life they want and deserve by first taking care of themselves and finding out who they are so that they can live that amazing life.  I’m not sure how to go about that, because I know that you have to get a certification…(correct me if I’m wrong, if anyone knows anything about this.)…I might also take my blog posts and make youtube videos with them as well, just to try it out. So that is it for now…I’ve also been decluttering so much that I’m in love with decluttering LOL.

Hope you all have an amazing day and weekend…and that your life is filled with beauty, hope and encouragement 🙂
