Never get so busy making a living that you forget to do the things you love and are passionate about.
I know how it goes…Life gets busy and you just manage to get your daily to do list checked, if you are lucky enough to do so…Today I hope that I can inspire you to just take a step back, reflect and think about yourself for a minute or two…
Are you taking the time out for yourself as a mother, wife, full time employee, stay at home mother, student no matter what your title might be.
We can easily become consumed by all the HAVE TO do’s that we forget about the WANT TO do’s. Don’t neglect yourself, your passions or the dreams. You are worthy to be passionately driven and happy while on the journey of life.
Today I decided to take back control of my time and prioritize my time and schedule to do the things I love and are passionate about, are you?
So stop making excuses and start living the life you so desperately want. Take back control of you health, get back to the gym even if you manage to get 30 minutes in. Go for a walk, make healthier choices in the kitchen. Sit down and read your book, write in your journal, whatever it is that you enjoy doing for YOURSELF do just that.
I hope you have an amazing day and week ahead. I will check in more regularly here as blogging is something that I’m passionate about, that I admit I have neglected for a while…
Stop waiting for the perfect time…Whatever it is take the first step, and if you are afraid DO IT anyway.
For a brief second, for a moment everything came to a stand still…Breath in, breath out, and just be, for this few seconds, minutes, for this moment in time. Words playing a sweet sound over and over in my mind calling out. Come to rest, it is time for a sound mind.
This moment. . . Now, this moment. . . Oh, girl, stay
Light Italic words embed on my computer screen in front of me became words with meaning, that touched my soul deep down…
I don’t know if you are a mom, a dad, a wife, a husband, a single parent, married, divorced, full time business women, an entrepreneur, a caregiver, an athlete, a student, jobless or whatever your “status” take a moment in this “busy” life and reach out to your deepest feelings and be still and JUST be…
Lay down the burdens of the things that you carry around if there is any. Ask yourself for a moment what it is that sets your soul on fire. What it is that you do that brings a smile to your face. Don’t get so busy and overwhelmed with life and all the expectations there might be, and most of the time the ones we set out for ourselves. For a moment this moment and a few more to come think about “YOU”! Do more of the things that sets your soul on fire and less of the things that drags you down. The little things in life that gives meaning and purpose. Find balance in everything you do.
It does not have to be big or small – Just a moment to appreciate the moment. Even if it is 5 minutes that you need as a “Time Out” for yourself to sit down and appreciate every little thing there is to be thankful for, without thinking about the “next”.
We are all on a different path leading to different destinations but I want to encourage you, and myself to learn how to be still, and just BE and enjoy life without being to serious :-).
Reach out to someone today or just a simple smile and hello for someone in need or whatever it is.
No matter what tomorrow holds, live for the moment, for now, appreciate the little things in life, listen to the soft voice and come to a standstill if needed.
There is so much that I want to share and say but without the perfect words I wan’t to get to the POINT – STOP being to busy, embrace every precious moment. Take care of your mind and enjoy life.
Have an amazing day.
You are worthy of a TIME OUT every now and again.
I come to the end of 2013 with a sudden flash of events going through my mind. Trying to recap 2013 is almost impossible, with so much that went on…
I can recall the moments that changed my life! There were moments of tears and moments of uncontained laughter. There were obstacles followed by rewards of conquering what I thought was the impossible. There were sadness and there was uncontained joy, there were heartaches and breakups and there were new relationships! I can honestly confess that this is the one-year that I NEVER want to relive although I will live from what I’ve learned. This however was a year of personal growth and achievements, a year that required strength in the things that mattered most.
We need to learn to take what we need from the experiences only to equip us for what is to come. Most of of all learn how to leave behind the things that pulled you down and look forward to the things that will pull us up.
With a welcoming heart I’m eagerly waiting for 2014…Isn’t it amazing how the human mind perceive the last day of one year to the first day of a new year as a new beginning…
Lets focus on the positive and the amazing things ahead. Enter 2014 with an expectation. Set goals and standards in the areas you wish to improve. Make a mindful decision NOW that this will be your best year to come. Let the past be foundation blocks only to building a better feature. Learn from your experiences and be thankful for how far you have come.
No matter how small the steps, the journey is what counts; always strive for progress and not perfection!
Lets make it count. I look forward to more blogging and sharing my new goals for 2014…
Have a super New Years Eve.
