Bravery, courage and fearlessness. I’ve been thinking about it a lot. How does one become this way? To be brave and courageous?
I’ve tried to develop a little routine for myself – things to purposely do in the morning that I know will make me feel calm and together, before I start my day. When I feel like my own needs and wants are attended to, I feel more likely to be productive and efficient in knocking things off the to do list. I feel more motivated and ready to give to the demands of the people and energies around me.
There a few things I know for sure, based on my own experience with the relationships in my life. It is these things that I’m going to share with you; perhaps there are a few you may want to look at and incorporate into your relationship life, too. Try it. Or don’t. It’s all good in the hood.I will tell you this, though… I experienced a beautiful blossoming effect once I started consciously making and working at these choices.
Listen, I totally know we didn’t need a countdown at midnight to create a fresh new start, or to leave the heavy yucky things behind. I totally get that. My tribe, myself, YOU… we are all capable, badass, love warriors who can start over the second we decide to. We don’t need a man-made new year to do it.
But hear me out…
For whatever reason putting my goals and dreams neatly on a clean paper, in my new clean day planner, using different colored pens, marking with stars and hearts, makes it official.
Is this enough? Am I playing too small? Are these goals all truly mine? Can I do more?
How do I find inspiration for something to write about? It’s few and far between some days… here are my go tos.
Do you ever feel like you just don’t have enough time on the weekends? I mean, Friday hits and, YES, it’s here! But then you blink and it’s Sunday night and you think, where did the time go? What did I do with my life the last two days?
There are some really terrible people out there. But, the cool thing is that there are even more super duper people out there… Just take a look around…
The things we struggle with are most often the place where our biggest lessons lie dormant, waiting to be breathed to life… what are you struggling with?
Some how, those days, that pain, scarred over. The mark has been made, but the initial rage of the pain has subsided.
Somewhere in there, she met you.
I think that when we release and let go of something from our past, we energetically create space for something new to come in. When we look at our year, and let go of the experiences that moved or rocked us, all awhile keeping the lesson it taught us, we can propel ourselves into more life, more excitement, more love.
…we are in constant dialogue with life. Whether we understand it, believe it or realize it. Our thoughts and words matter, and will be reflected back to us. Like the way a mirror reflects to us our image. What we choose to say and think, we will see more of.
“This practice is not about making yourself lovable; you already are lovable… It is not about improving yourself; it is about accepting yourself. It is not about changing yourself; it is about changing your mind about yourself. And it is not about reinventing yourself; it is about being even more of the real you.”
