Good Morning Guys

I found this image on Pinterest. Ironically, it’s speaking about an idea that I was just dealing with two days ago.

The way we understand this world develops through experience. A person, who’s lived through a tornado, perceives life a bit oppositely, than someone who’s lived contently on Wall Street.

Our expectations then, should be “open” enough to understand beyond our own experience. No two lives have walked the same exact path.

A firework could trigger PTSD for a Veteran. Rustling wind through neighborhood bushes , at night.. migh easily spook a Sexual Assult Victim.

We’re entitled to our thoughts, feelings, and opinions. We live our story. We hold our versions of every possible situation…

Nonetheless,

So does everyone else.

If we’re going to live amongst one another, we should be mindful to be objective in conversations which it’s necessary.

Have a great day!

Motivate Monday

Hello hello!! Another Monday has greeted us:)

Today, I want to get you excited about your budgeting!

Years ago, I was the customer that held her breath, hoping every transaction went through. The thought of buckling down and seeing the numbers, made me lose sleep. On the contrary, the frequent experiences with “decline” was just as terrible. I wasn’t ready for that growth yet, though.

Today, I spent hours working out my plan. I looked at bills and totals, dates and payments. I typed it all up in my app; which allows me to revisit it anytime I need.

So how do you get excited about budgeting?

You SET A GOAL!!

Think about these past two years. The isolation and re-evaluations tortured our mental health. We couldn’t go anywhere.. we couldn’t visit anyone. There was nothing open, aside from jobs of essential workers.

We all stayed home.. and thought.. and thought..and thought.

Transitioning back into some version of normalcy, we’ve moved on.. but.. have we moved forward?

…..

Right now, decide on one task you want to accomplish. Is it a savings goal? Is it a vacation? Maybe a new car? Graduating with a Master’s degree?

Once you have identified your goal, make a plan:

Here’s a few questions to consider asking yourself.

  • What steps need taken in order for it to be achieved?
  • What does it involve?
  • How much money is involved?
  • What changes can I make now in order to be more efficient?
  • What do I need to do that might be challenging?

Take such steps as the following:

  • break your goal down into smaller tangible tasks.
  • Invest quality time into changing
  • Write everything down
  • Be intentional in the entire process
  • Give yourself patience & grace

The task always seems so hard until you get started! Take time and work out a plan. Break the process down into smaller tasks.

You got this!

With Love and Light,

Blurb of My Day

Self Care all day! I decided this morning, today was going to be for me.

I napped super early, so I could sleep as long as I desired. I had adult “toy time” because a release of hormones does wonders for my body. I took extra time to shower & shave.. wash away all my discouragement and depression.

Later, I picked up my daughters; and, we went for a much needed walk!!

It felt AMAZING!!

Somehow, I feel this was a sign of some kind.

5555 & 77

It has to be..

Anyway, I’m thankful for this inspiration to post.. for my wonderful walk made my heart and lungs so happy.. and for my day of self-care.

How was your day?

Much Love & Light-

What Would You Say…

If you had one phone call to heaven…

One sentence to someone who hurt you?

If you could describe what their love meant to you.

The affect they had on your life..

Would you please take a moment, in the comments, write one sentence to someone, that needs said… Without using names. There’s no restrictions.

Write it out…

Love,

Nova

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

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 💎❤️

” I am no longer going to live in fear, speak negatively about myself and others, blame myself for past mistakes, downplay my abilities and talents, cheat myself, lie to myself, live in denial, and feel guilty for things that are not my fault. I will not procrastinate, worry about things I have no control over, and suffocate my feelings and emotions. I will not put roadblocks in my path, make excuses, put myself down, fail to try, allow others to decide for me, lack accountability, and spew negativity out into the vibration of energy connected to my life. I will not sit in pity, expect nothing to change, and blame others for my choices. Instead, I am going to love myself, first! I’m going to give myself unconditional love, mercy, grace, and respect … Because I deserve it. ”
