Part of being human is wanting something. And we all want to be happy, right? We work hard to have those things we desire. It’s alright to have something to aim or covet, it keeps us going. But how much of wanting is healthy and enough?
No one should stop anyone to pursue whatever makes them happy (as long as no harm is done to other people). Though we’re here to remind you that it’s also important to slow down, pause, and appreciate what is in front of you. Because sometimes, we’re so focused on what we want that we overlook what we already have. Remember, the happiness that we seek can be found in the little things.
The Top Five Regrets of the Dying by Bronnie Ware has been an eye-opener for me. I began reading this book last year at the start of the pandemic, yes! The time when all seemed uncertain. What it did was to really help me put things into perspective. As I start another year in my life’s journey, I gather all the lessons it brings along.
The uncertainty of Covid-19 last year has brought me to wonder this- What If Today Was My Last”? As I look back at the progress that I have made thus far, I realized that despite how I feel or how old I am; I still have not lived my best life. I am turning 46 years old this month and I can’t really say that I have lived and...
Who is in your circle?
A couple of weekends ago, this light bulb started to flicker on top of my head. I call it the "right-thinking bulb". I asked myself this question: "who is in my circle?"
It all started with this thought! for a couple of years now, I could not understand how someone would say I care, I love and/or I am there for you but once you have a tantrum, you say I need time off, it becomes "holy saint it is about time!" as if they could not wait for you to say these words. Sometimes the behaviors we display can harm us tremendously.
I realized one thing, the people you call family is never your true family. They are not blood-related, they are the people who accept you...
I am proud of who you have become. I literally am amazed by the hard work you put into yourself to be the best version of you. You understood the steps to develop self-care, and you allowed yourself to let go of the things that were holding you back.
Now, what direction are you heading in?
As you are celebrating the person you are becoming, what are the questions you have asked yourself? A few weeks ago, I gave you a few tips on how to put you first and some steps on how to create your goals. You see! those strategies are EXCEPTIONAL, and the more you practice them the easier things will be. We call it our motivational rituals #HABITS to live life and VET and to...
We have been told many times that “curiosity kills the cat” isn't that a very lame statement?
I am a curious person, in fact, who in this world is not curious? But I never wanted to make use of my curiosity. Want to know why? I was worried about what others would say and think of me. But I decided to go all-in with the choices and leaps that I wanted to take.
Do you worry about what others think and say about you? If so, STOP! it is time to VET:
You see once you start giving yourself the chance to VET things around you will shift for the better. You may have heard...
The decisions we make in our lives determine how far we go. We are the leaders of our lives, and as much as we are alive the decisions that we make can lead us to know what is right, what is fair and what is true. When we make decisions we are able to manage our plans, but if we do not stay focused, chances are that we will lose the opportunities that pass us by.
Today I woke up thinking how am I making my decisions? Are the daily decisions I make helping me lead my life effectively? I noticed that over the week some decisions I took were not aligned with the plans that I had. I was not balanced and focused. I looked at the calendar that I created for myself of the tasks...
Do you know what your purpose is in life?
I assure you that is a question 80% of people ask themselves daily.
Do you think you are not worthy of the things that happen in your life?
As I was listening to that podcast this morning, I learned that we "(human beings) are the only species to suffer from dubious diseases because we are unhappy with what we have." We carry on the guilt of limiting beliefs.
Is there something that gives your life a sense of meaning and purpose?
Often we blame ourselves because of something we did or say many years ago to someone we love (families, and friends). We allow ourselves to believe that we are not worthy of changes, not...
