Motivation Monday! Just a little Love

Happy Monday loves!

I hope you all enjoyed the weekend & were able to keep cool in spite of sweltering temperatures. Today’s Motivation Monday is in continuation of Friday’s video (posted on my FB page) as a reminder to give yourself Love. If we can see the value in loving others, then we must also see the value in loving ourselves. It gets tough sometimes when we don’t see ourselves as lovable but we are! And who knows you better than you?!

Lately, I’ve been giving myself some serious reminders to do this for myself. I recently updated my Vision Board wall with new sticky notes as my daily reminders of loving things to tell myself throughout the day. I’m a visual learner & this is my way of creatively putting my advice into my own practice. Below are some Self Love tips & practices that you may also find useful:

1. Develop some positive affirmations.
Tell yourself you are beautiful! Look in the mirror & say 3 good things about yourself. What are the features you love the most about yourself? Some of my favourite affirmations are: I am enough; I am worthy of love; I am centered, peaceful, & grounded; I am peace. You can say these at anytime of the day when you need a boost. With a deep breath, these & any others you may find most specific to your needs can help recharge you & remind you that you are worthy of your Love!

2. Make time for you!
The most common excuse I hear when speaking to my group of friends & colleagues is “I just can’t seem to find time for myself!” Hunny, you gotta make time! If we can make time for the kids, the spouses, other commitments we have to our loved ones, friends, & responsibilities, then we must priortize ourselves too! I struggle with this also, & have to force myself sometimes to take even 10mins to slow down after a busy day, sip some tea, & take a moment to re-center. I’m getting better at it, recognizing when I’m not feeling like myself or depleted so I can really carve in that self care time.Try taking a hot bath after a long day, or going for a walk or jog on a mild evening. Get into a good book you’ve been putting off. These and other activities can help you take some time to feel good about just being you & that putting yourself first is just as important as prioritizing other responsibilities.

3. Spending time with pther who love you.
This is probably one of the best ways to practice self love. By spending time with those who love you & want the best for you, you increase your happy hormones! You get a boost in confidence & remember that you are loved! Take im a movie with your bestie. Meet a lose relative for coffee or lunch (at home or in a cafe). Organize a Games Night & have some folks over for some good ol’ fashioned fun! These things not only help keep you surrounded by Love, but also keep you light-hearted & puts stress aside if even for a little while, keeping you focused on something positive.

Find what works for you & incorporate it into your every day life. You are worth it! You deserve it! Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love โ™กโ˜†

Happy Wellness Wednesday!

Greetings โ™ก

It’s Back to School & class is in session! Students everywhere are getting back into the groove of new & exciting lessons for the year! Yay! Any parents get the jitters of sending your kiddies off for their first day? I did, but deep down I knew she’d be fine, & she loved it! Her first day of second grade was awesome (her words not mine) & she loves her new school. I hope everyone had great first days โ™ก

Interestingly enough, tonight is also the official Harvest Full Moon! After that powerful New Moon/Total solar eclipse, there has been so much revealing, so much learning, & growth to reap from that I’ve been noticing within my own circle of friends & family & also all around the world(prayers up for all the nations braving their storms & natural disasters)! What an introduction for the Autumn season!

In what ways have you seen revelation, growth, & positive chnage in your own lives these last 2 weeks since the New Moon? What are you grateful for? You may be saying, “Well, it’s only been 2 weeks,” but we are constantly growing, always learning, & always at least one thing to be grateful for. I have definitely noticed my own growth & learning in the last few weeks, seeing & understanding lessons from some big changes in my life with starting over single, being a single mother, settling into our new place, among other things. As scary & new as these experiences are, I am grateful for the lessons that are being revealed & the learning that comes with it. These are the things that make us better versions of ourselves, when we can grow from situations that seem as though they may threaten to break us. It’s definitely empowering to say the least.

So, just as Autumn is approaching & the seaons are changing to bring in weather, just as the students are settling into new classes & school work, today, I encourage you to embrace the new lessons that time & experience is teaching you. Let it inspire you to be the best you you can be, & grow! It’s a sign that Life continues in cycles & in revitalization! And of course, have gratitude for everything you have & gain along the way. If you made a New Moon List, remember to take some time today in reflection & give thanks for the things accomplished & tasks you are still working on. I will definitley be having a smudge session tonight, sending more positive vibes to you all! Have a great week everyone ๐Ÿ˜˜ Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love โ™กโ˜†
