Happy Thursday 🍂 🍃 🎃 I know the day is nearly over for many of you; but, I send my sincerest wishes for a lovely night’s rest.

Today’s challenge is Compete against an earlier version of yourself.

The idea of competition is a bit threatening to me. I’ve never been a person who sought challenge. I will say; though, if I’m going to set myself a standard, a definite bar of which I grow, it will be of my previous self.

It is only my previous self that truly identifies all of which I can truly relate and understand. My previous self won’t be perfect, of course; but, it’s the past of which I’ve walked. It’s where I’ve been; and, I can only grow from which I understand.

Comparing is a horrendous habit in our lives. It’s unnecessary and damaging.

Here’s to facing our biggest competition (ourselves) and winning!

With Love and Light,

Good Morning, Afternoon, and Evening 🍃🎃

How are you, today? I’m hoping well 🍃

Today’s Do-For-You Challenge fits perfectly with what we talked about yesterday.

Today’s challenge is Be more polite to yourself.

How does that sound? They sound like all the sayings, phrases, and words that your inner child needs to hear.

  • I would rather be happy than be right.
  • I will stop pleasing everyone; and, I’ll focus on myself.
  • My body and looks don’t define me; my heart does.
  • All that I am, and who I become, defines my worth.
  • I love me.
  • I may not be where I’m going; but, I’m past where I’ve been.

I, 100%, can say that that innocent and sweet child is still within us. I know, before they saw their 5th birthday, they lived expierences that impacted every day after. They heard some things that didn’t make sense. They saw a few things that resulted in feeling tPhysically , They may have even went through horribly mentally traumatic stuff.

That child is still you. That child is still seeking it’s purest, happiest, and most recognizable self. Do this for you, today.

Begin reacquainting yourself with that angel baby inside.

With Love and Light,

Find My Soul

Not the usual place, I know! I’m not the typical lady, though. For me, cemeteries hold this mysterious but comforting aura.

When I walk, I’ve found the silence {the absence of the living} quite relaxing. It surely beats the constant chatter.

I ponder on whether or not the individuals were happy. I imagine their homes and businesses. I imagine their role in society and within their families. I think about the babies lost; the agony the families must have felt. I hope they are at peace and receive visits.

The last time I walked, I gathered up as much trash as I could. They deserved a great resting place. In one area, I discovered tombstones.. nearly completely covered over with grass. That completely broke my heart. It was obvious they hadn’t had visitors in such a long time. Crazy to even say this; but, maybe they don’t have any family left.

Either way, the cemetery is a different experience for me. This is the reason I created this image.

The spirits and afterlife have fascinated me for years. It’s not just them, and the quiet; though, it’s my experience of lost in thought. It’s my spirit connecting with others. It’s the symbolism & reminder, life is for the living. It’s names and dates of people that matter, just like you and me.. Even if they’ve passed on.

Being in a cemetery is an intense experience for me, as an HSP (highly sensitive person), Cancerean, INFJ, and Empath. It’s a place where I find my true self.. My soul.. Because so much clarity shines through.

Is this relatable to you? If so, I’d love to hear about your experience.

Thank you for stopping by 💚

Do-For-You Challenge: Day 1

Today begins a new month! I can’t wrap my brain around it; but, here we are, friends.

As the year continues, we make our way into Autumn. The world around us changes in color. The air cools to a crisp. Backwoods grow more visible. Bakeries begin making the most delicious desserts.

It’s a season of Thanksgiving. It’s the time of year when cuddles on couches, toasted marshmallows on sticks, and leaves on the ground make us smile.

This year, beginning today, I will be participating in the Do-For-You 30 Day Challenge. I’m eternally grateful for so much and so many; however, I don’t give myself enough love.

Today’s challenge: Spend time with the right people!

This is important because others have an influence us. Their beliefs, habits, and thoughts impact us. Please make sure you are around those who meet your level of awesome and rise you up!

Create a Lasting Legacy 💜

  • Face your problems head on. Work through some of that; so, it no longer controls got.
  • Be honest with yourself! Always!
  • Make your own happiness a priority. {As it should be!!}
  • Be yourself, genuinely and proudly. There’s no one else like you! Flaunt it 🙂

You’re not meant to know everything. The roadblocks, hiccups, and detours serve you as greatly as that which seems to be going for ya. You won’t always understand; but, time will reveal direction. Life will show you clarity. You’ll end up, as you are currently, where you’re meant to be. That of which you are worthy!

Wednesday’s Wisdom

I have some wisdom I’d like to share with you, today.

These are concepts you’ve heard before; however, they are worthy of repeating.

  1. People inturpret life through what they have experienced.
    • What people think of you has nothing to do with you.
    • What people think of you is who they see in themselves.
    • If you feel some type of way about what people think of you, consider what within you needs healing.
  2. Never let your safety be jeopardized. That’s mental, emotional, spiritual, any divition of safety!
  3. Someone who says you’re unlovable, isn’t anything but toxic. You don’t need that in your life.
  4. When you have been hurt, if you choose to be rash, and release your inner immature evil… (That is.. If you have that within you, still!), don’t wine about your misfortunes. You chose your karma.
    • Respond to a situation with focus ONLY on the original issue.
    • Listen to, acknowledge, and repeat what you hear from the other person.
    • If you don’t seek to understand, yet keep fueling the fire, you’re bound to hurt them. It’s inevitable.
  5. Set your boundaries and enforce them! If someone is being invasive, you are allowed to put a stop to it.
    • Before you can do that though, you MUST realize you’re worth boundaries and safety!
    • If you don’t know how to set boundaries, know what they sound like, or afraid to, let me help you.
  6. Keep a healthy balance between being in and out of your head.
    • Don’t run from the problems. They’ll be there waiting when you can’t run anymore.
    • Scary is uncomfortable; but, it’s NOT as uncomfortable as that which hinders you from your greatest self.
    • Whatever you want out of you, write down!!!
  7. LAUGH!! Find reasons if life doesn’t present them to you! It’s seriously great for your health! HERE’S A GREAT CLIP:

The whole living and trying to coexist with one another can be tough. Is there hatred and inhumanity? You betcha. What I’ve always said, focus on yourself! When you heal, you live the world differently.

Mamba Mentality

In a world filled with so much noise, Kobe focused on his goals. He strived hard, practiced tirelessly, and never gave in to adversity.

The coolest part about him; in my opinion, was his Down-to-Earth genuinity.

The second characteristic I loved about him, was his tenacity. Sure he was signed with the Lakers; but, he sat the bench many games. That wasn’t good enough for Kobe. It wasn’t what he wanted. He wasn’t selling himself short, either.

As a Husband, Father, & HUGE NBA Ball player, Kobe had a life of others’ dreams. Still, he showed vulnerability with this quote. Being true and honest, breeding resilience from losses, and setbacks. Overcoming what was uncomfortable, Kobe made his legacy by 41 years of age.

We all have dreams and goals. We all have choices telling us, it’s not your time kid. Kobe’s example teaches the value of listening to your own voice. Whether it’s ballet, parenting, Soccer, skiing, writing, or cleaning the house, He teaches us to do it with pride, to the best of our ability, and continued improvement.

That’s sound advice, if you ask me!

REST IN PEACE KOBE 🏀

Food for Thought

Just because it doesn’t make sense, doesn’t mean it’s wrong.

Just because you can’t see the reason, doesn’t make the purpose obsolete.

Just because the situation is uncomfortable, doesn’t allow you to disregard it.

We’re not meant to understand everything at one time. Give time a chance.

Seize Every Opportunity to Fulfill Your Legacy!

I never held my hand out and asked for something free

I got pride I could roll out for miles in front of me

I don’t need your help, and I don’t need sympathy

I don’t need you to lower the bar for me

I know I’m Superwoman, I know I’m strong

I know I’ve got this ’cause I’ve had it all along

I’m phenomenal and I’m enough

I don’t need you to tell me who to be
