My Favorite App

Hot from the App Store!! This is a life-changing, makes-life-so-much-better, must-have app!!

Zinnia

{ Found here in the App Store }

I’ve gotten into this healthy habit of doing some sort of entry into one of my journals. The time taken to document something important with creativity is so positive. Additionally, the privacy of this app… where I write absolutely everything without judgment & scrutiny… indescribable. No one to tell me I’m wrong.. or that’s not fair.. or I shouldn’t feel that way.. or here we go again.. I’m so thankful for this app!!

The pro version is only $9.99 a month!! It’s well worth much more than that with all the personalization options available!!! I love this app so much. It helps me keep track of important information, like bills.. business stats.. and still provides a place for creativity and dreams!!

Absolutely recommend this to every iPhone user!

Here’s the entry I just completed.

This is truly a must-have!!

With Love & Light,

Inner Child: Storytelling

When you consider who you are right now, for any amount.. Even a tiny morsal, do you blame your childhood? I do.

My belief is most of us don’t understand child development until we’re adults. We’re raised by human adults that, also, may not understand it. By the time we reach the age of understanding, we are working tirelessly UNLEARNING the mistakes and CORRECTING ourselves.

This crazy cycle is unnecessary. I want to speak to the children in our WordPress community. These children are currently under the age of 21.

This information is a result of endless theory and testing, research and critiquing. Erik Erikson was a German Psychologist who spent decades developing what’s, now, commonly known as

The 8 Stages of Psychological Development

Source

NOW.. I need the rest of the childrens’ attention please!

Who’s left? The rest of us, 21 and older… Every single one of us has an inner child. I don’t care what you’ve done or how hard ass you think you are. I don’t care what you say about your sense of awareness… When you’re faced with THE one situation that crumbles all the walls, leaving you vulnerable… Your child shows up!

I need all of you beautiful children to sit with me, while I tell you a story..

It’s about a little boy.. A little girl.. Or a precious soul and the journey of growth. It’s a story with many chapters; so I’ll need your patience… I’ll need you put on your listening ears.. And use your best silent voices. This story isn’t one you’ve ever heard. It’s, also, one you’ll never forget.

To the group I addressed first, I encourage you to sit with the rest of our kids. I hope you’ll listen and take note of the truth in the story. I hope you’d safely tuck these chapters into your heart.

Each Chapter will be Red lettering. It’ll say

Storytelling: Chapter {whatever}

The 1st Chapter will be posted soon. Please keep a look out for it.

Until then, gather some Self-Care treats and rest your beautiful self. This adventure isn’t going to be easy.. but, it’s going to be worth it 💚💜💚

With all my love 💎❤️

About Relationships

These are SO HARD 👀 Right? Yes, I’ll say it for all of us. If you don’t think so, please grace me with your knowledge. A relationship is a two way street, with lots of love, trust, communication, forgiveness, patience, acceptance, listening, honesty, respect, trying, and more.

Unforgettable friendships are such a blessing! These are the ones that ride or die with you. These are the ones that laugh with you when the night before was so embarrassing. These are the ones who pray with you or sit with you as you cry. These connections are the foundation when your world is complete and utter chaos.

Sadly, all to often, this one relationship we count on forever… begins to weaken. Communication stops. Distance wedges it’s way in between both (or all) parties. Growing up can mean growing apart. It’s ok.

In many other cases, the scenario is beyond messy. It’s deadly. It’s life consuming and dangerous.

Tonight, I wanted to speak to you particular individuals. I want to encourage you with these messages.

Your voice is your power ❤️ Always! If you’re in a situation that feels less than empowering and supportive, it’s time to leave. I’m not saying quit. I’m saying there is a limit to which you tolerate less than. That’s your choice. That’s yours to change. You ARE capable of what’s necessary. I’m saying you matter too. I’m saying it’s time to give all of yourself to yourself.

I’m sending you all positive vibes and love. I’ll listen if you need an ear. We’re all going through this crazy life together.

Until next time,

Nova Namastè

Nova’s Wise Words Wednesdays

If you don’t go through the process of an experience, you’ll surely miss it’s entire purpose. There following, what will make sense, if all the dots aren’t connected?

Sure you’ll be vulnerable. You’ll be confused. You’ll question and fear. You’re going to be uncomfortable and hesitant.

BUT….

What if the purpose of the moment is to build self confidence? What if life is trying to teach you resilience? What if this is meant to strengthen your belief in your truths? What if this experience teaches you that you don’t need to know all the answers… That faith and trust do work in accordance to a greater plan?

There’s a reason for everything, my friends. Embrace all parts to each one.

Until next time

Stay Safe, Speak Life, and Spread Kindness!

With Love and Light,

Nova Namastè

Company among the Dead

She couldn’t catch her breath.

“This is what a panic attack feels like!” her mind echoed in her silence.

All the noises around her; but, she couldn’t hear.

Only the presence of her outraged core had her attention.

Not a single person held space with empathy.

Very few extended condolences, cold, shallow and obligatory of course.

She was outragged. All the judgemental eyes looked in her direction.

He didn’t want her there. It wasn’t “their” kind of place! She felt that, every single minute that passed.

Even after life, he spoke right to her truth.

The service started. She hid in the back, afraid she’d make a scene she couldn’t take back.

Mumbled and muffled, the Pastor was saying things… But she didn’t listen.

She couldn’t hear past the anger she carried!

Then, in a few slip seconds, she heard

“He was a brother and a Son”.

And she snapped! It took every fiber of her being

From interrupting everyone’s “grieving”… And speak her damn mind.

She knew the baby needed more of her though.

She knew they hurt… And she was hurt.

She knew she didn’t HAVE to stay.

She knew no one would care if she left.

So she gathered her things, said her goodbyes,

And left.

Whispers and shit circled the rumor mill..

But she didn’t care. The ONLY person that mattered was 18 months old.

…………………….

What hallowed the hearts of people that day wasn’t grief… It was guilt. When we don’t understand, and it creates pain…

We carelessly search for someone to blame.

Compassion is a thing… Good throughout every year. Let’s use it often as possible. We never know what one is going through.

Until next time,

Nova Namastè

Remember That!

Photo found on Pinterest

Good Morning, Happy Saturday Everyone.

I came across this gem and had to share. So many of us excuse poor behavior (especially from a loved one or close friend). We don’t have too, though.

So what do we do?

How do we change that?

We can’t control “ them”…

You’re absolutely right! The ONLY person you can control is you.

You must first TELL YOURSELF that disrespect isn’t ok. Repeatedly, tell yourself that all forms ( and there’s many decorated by charisma and such) are not ok. You will begin to believe that.

Set that boundary that tells them it’s no longer ok. This is apart of loving yourself. In actuality, it’s loving them too.

You deserve the best life. Believe that 🙂

With love and light,

Nova Namastè
