Wellness Wednesday: Love is the Cure!

Standard

Blessed day my loves & Happy Valentine’s Day 😍

On a day like today, there are more visible reminders all around that all we need is Love! Whether you’re single or have a special someone in your life, make today & everyday special with words & acts of Love. We deserve it!

This photo is a snapshot of what greeted me one morning when I feeling my feelings, the good ones & not so good ones. While standing in line for my morning cup of java, I reminded myself that I need to always Love myself through everything. We get so hard on ourselves & forget that the attention we pay to others on how we speak to & treat them, we need to do the same for us. Then it was my turn & I saw the Starbucks gift card line up: “I choose you; With Love; You’re the best; You are Loved,” & I smiled 😊 I took that as my sign that the Universe was putting me in alignment with what I need to do, always, all ways: to Love. It was so beautiful that I had to take a picture as a reminder that, “Love follows me wherever I go.”

Love follows you too. Give yourself that self-love talk daily & watch it manifest in your life. I hope this serves as your reminder today. 😘 Happy Valentine’s Day! Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡☆

Wellness Wednesday: Peace Like a River😊

Standard

Good morning loves & it’s Wellness Wednesday! Peace like a river! Something that I came to remembrance recently is this: just because you have Peace that flows like a river doesn’t mean it will be smooth sailings all the time. Life doesn’t work that way so why would its components? The truth of the matter is is that what you seek is what you will be tested in. It’s important to know that growth can be uncomfortable at times but it is necessary. Visit peacefulprojectblog.com for today’s Wellness Wednesday post & inspirational quote. Peace & Love ♡☆ In order for your Peace to grow, you will be confronted with situations that test your Peace. Will it always be easy to remain calm in a frustrating situation? Nope. This is definitely something that concerns me in prayer when I ask for continued strength & Peace to handle whatever comes my way, is that whatever comes my way will be really “testy.” Like me, you will probably feel like you want to scream or shut yourself in a room away from everyone when faced with circumstances that make you feel like, “Ugh! I’m trying to be calm & this is NOT helping!” The key is learn & practice ways to shorten the amount of time you spend in the frustration, & use the methods of Peace & calm to help you manage better, to increase the time you spend being proactive & less being reactive. A deep breath, for example, works wonders to re-center yourself, or repeating a positive self-talk mantra like “It’s okay, I can do this” are great ways to ground yourself before or even after responding to a frustrating event. Whatever you do, know that you are human & there are things that will upset you. There are times when responding with a “Zen” attitude is not your first thought, & that’s okay. Just remind yourself that you are Peace & Love & it will help propel you to a positive mental & spiritual space. And of course, always rememeber to Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡☆ p.s. tonight is the 2nd Full Moon of the month, nicknamed the “Super Moon.” Enjoy the view 😊 & if you made your New Moon list, give thanks for all you have accomplished & are still working on, & burn your list to send your intentions further into the Universe!😘

Motivation Monday: Stick to your vision!

Standard

Good afternoon loves & Happy Motivation Monday!

I hope everyone had a good weekend 😊 After hosting a successful Vision Board party, it inspired me for today’s post. Setting positive intentions for this week, how do you want your day to go? Envision how you want your Monday to look. How do you want your week to go? Take some time throughout the day to see yourself where you want to be & allow yourself to feel the satisfaction of that. By doing this you create the vibrations to attract that vision to you. Where do you see yourself now?

Have a great week😘 Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡☆

Honor yourself ☆♡

I hope everyone had good weekends & had some down time to rest. Here we are for another Monday, although sometimes tough, we must always remember to operate in gratitude.

Today, I am grateful for Life & the lessons I’m learning & being taught in what it means to honor myself, to do what is needed for me without feeling guilt.

What are you grateful for today? Whatever it is, may you find Peace & Joy with it. Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡☆

Motivation Monday: Be Inspired!

Standard

Be Inspired😊

Good morning loves & happy Motivation Monday!

“Every day I look for ways to live my vision.”- Deepak Chopra

Allow yourself to be inspired! When you see something that brings you a sense of joy, peace, love, faith, or hope, embrace that feeling! Let it propel you to do, say, and/or feel more of something positive.

As a writer, there’s nothing I love more than being inspired by seeing something that would be considered small, like a mother kissing her child goodbye for the school day or a person reading a hardcover book on public transit.

Today I encourage you to find things or sights that inspire you & let it fill your space with goodness❤ Have a great Monday!

Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡☆

Motivation Monday: Happy New Year!

Standard

Good morning loves! Happy New Year & Happy Monday!

I hope everyone is keeping warm & travelling safely today, albeit slowly. Please don’t rush anywhere today folks!You can’t be late twice! P.S. Please dial 311 if you see someone in the city today (or at anytime this Winter) in need of a warm place to be❤

As the second week of 2018 has begun, I have been seeing a common theme lately in social media posts & on conversation with folks. I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions, but I see that Self Care/Self Love seem to be the narrative for 2018, & you know I am 100% here for it! In our every day to day lives we temd to give most of ourselves to our jobs, careers, kids, & those we have intimate relationships with that we often tend to miss the mark when it comes to taking care of us. I would love to hear what Self Care rituals & actions of Self Love that you are working to apply this year. Hit me up in the comments!

That being said, I realize that in 2017, my own Self Care wasn’t where it needed to be. I was definitley putting some actions to practice such as home Spa nights, making time for exercise & relaxation, taking moments for myself & not letting guilt make me cut that time short to do things for others that could wait a few minutes….I was doing this, but not daily or weekly. I would fall off the wagon, feel bad for a bit then hop back on. This will happen this year too as this is the way of life, those lovely ebbs & flows. I embrace that. What I won’t embrace however, is the negative self talk that rears its ugly head when I feel like I’ve failed myself. This is what keeps me in the funk of feeling stagnant longer than I want to be.

As we know, everyday is a new day to do better than before. Part of my Self Care is to wake up early as part of my Wholistic routine to take the time to feed my Spirit, exercise my body, & clear my mind to be filled with love & positivity for the day. There once was a time where I would wake up by 5am, meditate & do yoga, then write an uplifitng post for the day. Life happens & this was one routine that changed for me as my priorities had changed. Even still I was making efforts to wake up early & do vigorous exercise, but becoming a single mother adds a whole new pressure to life & with that, my levels of exhaustion were higher & even the thought of waking up early to do a heavy sweat workout was tiring enough to make push the snooze button more than I want to admit. Sleeping in became GOLD! But I am tired of being tired now & realize that with some small changes I can make time to Love me the way I need to be Loved. Instead of doing high intensity workouts in the early morning, I am waking up gently to freshen up, meditate, yoga & journal it all out. Last week I did this & felt the pressure of “needing” to exercise heavily all the time melt away & these words came: “This is the time you have carved out for yourself; this is your definition of Self Love. Breathe & embrace this moment.” It feels good & I will keep it going. This helps keep me in a more positive frame of Self when negative or unfavorable things happen. Who knows, maybe I’ll finally be able to do that yoga handstand I’ve been wanting to master for a while now 😍I’ll get there & I hope the same for you, that whatever it is in Love that you need to do for yourself that you do so & Love yourself through it 😊
Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love♡☆
