Motivational Monday – Big girls & big boys don’t cry! Or do they?πŸ€”

Blessed day my loves😍 I hope we all had productive & restful weekends. Today’s Motivation is to inspire you to let yourself feel what you need to feel so you can be who you need to be on your journey, while expressing gratitude along the journey. If that means tears need to fall every now & again, then so be it. “Tears are the water to the soul,” is what came to me in a meditation one day, & I firmly believe that after a good cry, we rise up with a feverence to keep pushing forward regardless of the circumstances.

The common narrative is that after a certain age or milestone in life, we as adults aren’t supposed to cry unless it’s because of extenuating circumstances. But what about when those feelings of being overwhelmed or being unheard, or hopelessness, or sever confusion? What happens when you can’t feel like you can express yourself? Sometimes the tears are needed to let all those feelings & emotions flow, all the way out. Let it out so you can let it go. I had my moment with that this weekend, when I woke up Sunday morning with tears streaming down my face. Out of no where, I was just sobbing. I’m still not totally sure why I was crying, but for a moment I wanted to stiffle the tears & keep it quiet, didn’t want my daughter to over hear if she was awake. “But when was the last time I had a good cry,” I asked myself. I couldn’t remember, so I just let it out. Silent sobs & warm tears. In that moment of the Sunday morning peace & quiet, whatever needed to get out needed to come out & that it did. And it didn’t last too long but when it was done I felt lighter, releasing what needed to be released & I went right into a deep prayer of thanksgiving for all that I have.

Today, I encourage you to let go of what you need to so you can make room for what you need in your space. Make room for yourself. Feel what you need to. When we block ourselves or others from allowing those feelings to fully be expressed, we inadvertently block ourselves from really examining & understanding what’s going on inside ourselves. Essentially, we avoid. And we all know what happens when we avoid important things: they find a way to make themselves known, & more than likely in ways that are not private for us to manage it as we want to. Outburst of tears in the grocery store aisle? Crying at the sight of a commercial? Triggers seemingly come out of no where & then it’s Niagara Falls on your face. The emotions are there to show us what we need to see about ourselves & our lives so we can address what needs addressing, what needs to stay & what needs relaesing. So, release. A good cry feels like that doesn’t it? A release of what has been building up, and lightening the emotional load you may be feeling so you can face your situations head on. Big girls & big boys do cry. Embrace all of you & do it all with Love.

Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & love β€πŸ’«

Wellness Wednesday – Change is good!

Blessed risings my loves! Today marks the first day of Spring!🌱 Yay! Yet, it seems that Winter is getting her last hoorah with this crisp, minus-degree weather❄❄❄ But Spring is on her way!

As the seasons change we prepare ourselves for the next change in weather & temperatures. We know it’s coming at some point, that the change will arrive. Just like in life, our seasons change too, however, we often times tend cling to the familiar & old ways that we attach ourselves to. It got you this far, right?

Just like the Winter coats & boots & all those warm layers get packed away into the closet until they are needed again, the same can be said for our old habits, beliefs, or anything in our lives that need some reevaluation or rearranging. Change can be good & new or revamped thought processes, ideals, & belief systems have a chance to be explored & implenented if suitable. These good changes, while they may feel scary as the unknown can be, can help us boost our positive energy & increase our Inner Peace, as we let go of what no longer serves us & make way for a better experience, clearing the way for new opportunities that are for our own good.

No one said it would be easy or that you won’t feel afraid, but in these good changes we can make a choice to avoid until it smacks us in the face, or we can face them head on with a brave & confident Spirit.

So, as we wait for Spring, as we clear out our closets & change up our wardrobes for a new Season, let’s do the same with out hearts & minds, & embrace good changes with an open heart, cleared path, & brighter outlook on a new day. And as always, remember through it all, to Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love β€πŸ’«

Wellness Wednesday: Still waters run deep

Happy Wellness Wednesday!

Bundle up folks! Today’s a coooold one!

Although I’m on a bit of hiatus from posting regularly, I was inspired by the amazing views this weekend, especially of the river, & I wanted to share some encouragement with you this Wednesday morning. As the saying goes, “Still waters run deep.” While we may not see it on the surface, there is more to our journeys than what meets the eye. As we work on our Peace, cultivating it & nurturing it, the process can get messy at times & have rough undercurrents. Give yourself permission to go & grow through whatever it is that you are facing right now.

Watching the river, listening to the water moving under the ice (all that snow you see before the river? that is actually all ice, as the river is frozen over), learning about how to create safe boundaries so we could know where was safe to venture without hitting thinning ice, I though to myself: well, alright then, lessons upon lessons upon lessons are showing up to me in this one view. The lesson that first stuck out to me was this: while it may not be visible, there is always something going under the surface. There is always work being done on levels that you may not even realize. Yet, the signs are all around you, showing themselves tou, you just need to focus & pay attention. Allow yourself to see what you need to see, feel what you need to feel, grow through what you need to grow through, so that your true & best nature can shine through.

As human beings, we often try to avoid situations that are difficult, that bring up emotions that we dont want to deal with. While this can be helpful at times, when these emotions come up often, it’s the Universe sending you a message: look at it, face it, get deep, because you need to heal it. The healing process isn’t easy or necessarily quick, just like that river, with ice breaking off in thin spots, the water moves where it needs to, goes where it’s supposed to. Tough & trying situations gives us a chance to really examine ourselves, learn what works & what doesn’t, & provide us with a chance to gather the tools needed to get better & do better. Trust the process.

Have a great & warm day my loves!😘 Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & love β€πŸ’«
