Death Grounds You

Why does it take tragedy for us to be transparent + authentic with each other?

With a loss, we question what’s important to us in life.

We reflect on the qualities we admired most about the person we have lost.

We gain mental strength.

Death certainly puts life into perspective + reminds us of our own mortality.

Loss can be the catalyst for new or better decisions, improved relationships, + can motivate us to make the changes we know we should make to live a better, more fulfilled life.

Reminder: Make the most of every moment. Experience all the ups + downs, busy + boring moments.

Appreciate ALL of your senses: sight, taste, touch, hearing, smell. Catch the details of life. See life for what it is, imperfections + all. Death grounds you to what is -the NOW.

Choose Wisely

Consciously choose who your people are. These are the people who will tell you hard truths, who you can depend on, who help you see that your faults aren’t fatal.

Keep it Moving

Conflict, loss, setbacks, and challenges seem abundant these days. For some, it feels like one crazy thing after another.

Adversity is like a punch in the gut. Overcoming hard times is what builds resiliency in us. How quickly we bounce back from life’s blows determines the success and happiness we have in life.

Although sometimes adversity is not easy to come back from, doing hard things is what being a strong person is all about.

“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” – Napoleon Hill

Sometimes, all we need is a soft nudge to continue taking small steps forward. I hope in some way, this one serves you as a reminder to #keepitmoving 💛

Change

The only constant in life is change. This means that the world is always changing and so are people.

Allow yourself to work harder than you ever have before, get a new perspective, and use this as a chance to start over in a different beat than you previously had.

Changes also bring new opportunities to learn something new, such as taking care of yourself, new hobbies, new ways of doing things, new relationships, and new financial alternatives that can be of use to you in the long run.

Take every change as a new adventure. Because since things are constantly changing, we are continually learning. Here’s to new adventures 🥂

When All Else Fails, Yoga

Yoga has become my haven. With time, I’ve realized that it’s not about being good at the pose. It’s about being good to yourself.

The Power of Prayer

When you want something with all of your heart, the universe conspires for you to achieve it. I prayed really hard last night. So hard that the tears flowed. My one ask: if what I am doing in my life + businesses are not serving you Lord, please take it all away. Let your will be done, not mine.

All I can attest to is putting everything into His hands. He has never led me astray or from my heart’s desires.

Answered prayers today.

Thank you God 🙌🏽 now off to werk, werk, werk 💛

Good Friday 2022

I remember days when I used to pray to not wake up. I’d cry myself to sleep, hoping that the weight of the world would be lifted from what I believed to be a miserable life -until my faith was restored.
It took going through a lot of pain, slaying mental dragons, making peace with my past to be able to stand in who I am, to accept it and know that the only thing I can strive for is to do better.
Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I choose joy, happiness, kindness, love. To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.
“Good Friday is not about us trying to “get right with God.” It is about us entering the difference between God and humanity and just touching it for a moment. Touching the shimmering sadness of humanity’s insistence that we can be our own gods, that we can be pure and all-powerful.” Nadia Bolz-Weber
