Serving the betterment of Society! — Inspiration HERE (Repost)

This post ties in well with the theme for this week “Patience

Understanding the difference between a want and a need will make it easier to decide what things are worth chasing vs waiting for in life.

If the mind and mouth belong to the body, what belongs to the soul? We speak of infinite tales of mankind and its growth. We speak boldly of integrity and justice. We assert our views and want to see developments likewise. Here is the problem, All of these end up becoming our wants and not […]

The Need to be Without (The sake of Your Sanity)

Unplugging and taking quiet time is the best gift you can give yourself. Refusing to succumb to the pull of the internet removes the cloud that confuses ones’ purpose. Just imagine in a typical day; you wake up with a list of goals you want to accomplish, but somehow the first thing you do is look at the updates on your phone and at this point, your focus shifts from taking care of your goals to fixating on trends. Then as you go throughout your day, during your commute and work, you sneak in moments where you “need” to answer a message or look at a post.

This occurrence becomes embedded in your daily lives to the point where feeding the addiction displaces accomplishing goals. Then, there comes the point where you have lost sight of who you are as a person. This displacement is real and dangerous; the addiction grows slowly and steadily while distracting its host into some alternate reality. The good news is that this addiction is reversible. The same way you convinced yourself to scroll through social media is the same way you can persuade yourself to close the application. Believe it or not, your world will not shatter if you don’t look at the trends multiple times a day.

Take some time during the day to turn off your phone and direct your attention to some other aspect of your life.

  • Go outside and rediscover nature; with the rapid consumption of technology, humans have strayed away from the divine cycle of the universe. The use of content has become more critical than self-care. Go outside and learn to re-appreciate the beauty and calming effects of nature.
  • Take the time to reflect on your past and present so that you can create targets for your future.
  • Try consuming as little artificial light as possible; the presence of artificial life affects the hormonal balance in the body.
  • Try Adopting early sleep and wake times; resting between the recommended hours does help holistically and waking up early allows you to accomplish some personal goals before you have to go into work.

Focusing on the past is a waste of time, unless you have a time travel machine to fix the situation. Look at what’s happening now and sort things out. There will be light at the end of the tunnel if you are willing to be patient enough to keep existing in faith to see it.

Time for Change

Is life making you busy or you are using LIFE as an excuse not to do the things you need to do?

I made an effort to start this blog, and I was consistent with semi-regular postings. When things became a bit more demanding but still manageable, I rode that busy train to the point where I didn’t post anything for two weeks. I did, however, find time to scroll through Instagram in the name of clearing my head. I was allowing this sluggish nature to get the best of me; it’s fun to stay in bed sleeping and scrolling through social media, but I needed to do right by myself and develop.

It may be hard to believe, but you are meant for something more than mediocrity. Scrolling through social media, watching others impact change is more than what you were put on the earth to do. If you think you have no idea what you are meant to do in this life, you are wrong. You know it, it’s been hovering around you since the beginning. It’s time to focus your energy on letting this become apparent to you. Now is the perfect time to do it because you are at home and streaming tv is becoming a bit tired. If you are like me and avoided connecting with yourself because it was too hard, take a chance on yourself.

Start small; find out things about yourself by challenging your thinking. One thing I started doing was writing challenges. The complexity of these challenges pulled me out of my comfort zone and made me ok with being vulnerable.

During this time of isolation, learn more about yourself to resume the growth process. You are fantastic and complex; it’s time to unlock that door to find out your potential.

End of Year Address (Part 1)

Every year I am fortunate enough to celebrate two new years; the one everyone celebrates based on the Gregorian calendar, and the other one is, of course, my birthday. The second one is much more special to me because it’s a celebration of my birth and a rededication of my commitment to be my most authentic self. This year, 19-28, was a fantastic year aside from the fact I will never acclimatise to winter for I will forever be a summer baby.

The year started in Barcelona; it was a refreshing experience seeing it for the second time around. It was still winter there was the sun shone in all its glory. I returned to the UK, and all my problems met me at the airport. That year I knew I wanted to leave my job, but I couldn’t just quit, and the job search was aimless because I didn’t know what my next step was going to be. At the moment, work was a bit bearable due to my work husband, but as he was leaving soon, the impending doom was quickly approaching. After he left, the reality of how much I disliked where I work hit me and I confessed to my manager that I wasn’t challenged.

Moving into the first quarter of the year, I was still stuck at my job, but I had a trip to Ibiza planned that made me excited. However, hearing that my dad was sick made me every concerned and taking a trip home was at the back of my mind. A week before I was supposed to go to Ibiza, I made the decision that I would go to Grenada instead. However, that didn’t happen, and I went both, and I never regretted the decision. Ibiza made me realised that I needed to reconnect with my spontaneous and adventurous side. I got to have the time of my life and met such amazing people plus I got sun which made me very happy…

Generation Curses 101

During my introspection, the term ‘generational curse’ appeared a lot in my feed. It seemed like an entirely new concept as I couldn’t recall anyone speaking about it growing up. I did my research, but it was quite hard to find a proper definition. Based on what I read, I came up with this explanation.

Generational curses are misfortunes experienced based on negative traits inherited.

I heard the concept growing up. It was used to explain “why a person had a mental defect”, “experienced multiple miscarriages”, “involved in voodoo”, “poverty” or “experienced a karmic event”, to name a few.

I never thought much about it because it didn’t pertain to me. As I got older, I realise I was a victim on a smaller scale. I noticed that I deliberately sabotaged myself because I felt I wasn’t worthy to receive blessings. I often related these events to “not being my time” and continued coasting through life. I didn’t know better because I wasn’t taught better. Finding the root causes to heal was difficult, but I was able to categorise it into nature and nurture based.

Nature-Based:
I found out that descendants of slaves have modifications in how genes are expressed or suppressed in the body. Any trauma experienced by slaves tweaked how genes are regulated. This change can affect an individual on a physical, mental and spiritual level. Since descendants inherit DNA from their ancestors, all descendants acquire the change. This process is called Epigenetics. If you are not a descendant of slaves, the same theory can be applied if you had a traumatic event in your family’s history.

Nurture-Based:
It can also be developed by learning during interactions and observations. For example, if you are taught that your skin tone, body or hair type doesn’t fit a “recommended standard” you will forever try to change yourself. If negative thoughts surround you, you will go through life with a defeated mindset and never allow your light to shine at its brightest.

I’ve spoken to many people who’ve had these experiences. Therefore, I felt the need to write about this topic. The first step in growing is acknowledging that this problem exists.

Cleanliness is close to Godliness…(pt2)

Being aware that there are burdens in your life is one thing, but actively trying to get rid of those burdens is another thing. No one is expected to get rid of all their problems overnight, but working on a challenge each night does add up. I started following blogs that addressed the issue of breaking generational curses. When I first started looking into this, it was a shock to find how most things that I grew up doing were NOT OK. Those beliefs and traits had a profound impact on my life today.

If you change your environment, you can change your mindset. I was able to change the people I followed on social media, the conversations I had, and the activities I did in my free time. Removing nonproductive activities allowed me to face the fact that I harboured too many unnecessary feelings. Combing through those feelings gave me clarity about aspects of my life, which needed growth.

Doing introspections make you aware of the good, bad and ugly parts. Maintaining the positive elements seem relatively straightforward, but enhancing them takes a conscious effect. Letting go of your negative attributes takes some reprogramming, which is fundamentally changing the person you are currently. That part was a battle, but it took some time to accomplish with patience and consistency being my closest frenemy.

I began praying and meditating more. I felt so grounded being able to spend time in quiet, surrounded by nature. I would get so much clarity, and solving problems became easier. Plus, I connected with my intuition, so when something felt right or vice versa, I listened. Every time I meditated or prayed, I remember the verse, “Be still and know that I am God.” Finding the time to take a break from all the distractions resets my body to its best self.

I started consistently eating healthy. This made so much difference because I felt this release from my body. I love the way I felt; my face started to glow and was happy even though I went through challenges. I worked on gathering knowledge, i.e. reading books, watching/listening documentaries, podcasts etc. My goal for the day was to learn at least one new piece of information. All of these things gave me the confidence I needed to change my thought patterns and receive my blessings. Now I write down my goals and having daily affirmations. I started each day with “I am + something positive.” I repeat this process each day to change my mindset. It has been a few months, and there is a definite shift in my life.
