Self love comes in many forms but one of the ways is knowing when you need to let go of habits that aid in your downfall. You know what is best for you; you get daily signs, it just about putting it into practice.
I hope that you get there in your journey. Your future self is waiting to start walking along that purpose driven path. Don’t be afraid to heal because healing looks good on you.
I’ve been a bit preoccupied and forgot to post but I feel I need to do it for the sake of consistency. I am a firm believer that you need to water the things that are important to you. So here goes….
If we could control every detail of our lives we would soon realise that we would be in lots of trouble for we don’t know our true purpose in life. We would go around making decisions and tweaking existing decisions so it will fit our present existence. This may be good for our present self, but what about our future self?
I’ve realised that we need to fail at things in order to get back on the path we are destined to travel. It’s okay when things are going crazy, it means that things are going to smooth itself out soon, you just have to start preparing yourself for the next step in your life.
I’ve completely resonated with experience that it why I can speak so wholeheartedly. Patience and trusting aren’t my strongest qualities, but I am working on it for my sanity. I am mentally preparing myself for the blessings you will received. I do hope you are doing the same.
I was on IG, and I saw this post which said the following:
This post was a reminder of all the beautiful things I currently have in my life; I am healthy and happy. I have friends and family that I can count on no matter the circumstance. I have a job, a home, I can be creative, and spread joy. I have been surrounded by so many opportunities to improve myself. Every morning I go through my blessings, and I notice the list grows each week. I am fortunate to exist in a space where I don’t have to worry about basic needs and can move and speak freely. There are many things I’m unsure about in life but being blessed isn’t one of those things.
With all the uncertainty happening in the world, panic seems to be the only logical thing to do. But in panicking, you cloud your mind with fear and it becomes harder to receive the message. With all the crazy, you need to constantly be grateful because in focusing on the positives, calm rushes within you.
As you go throughout your day don’t forget to repeat the words and practice it. Be safe and remember the need to be positive in your lives.
As part of my morning routine, I wake up, pray and meditate. As that became an integral part of my day I realised I became more grounded and had a clear sense of what I wanted to do. Ideas and thoughts came more freely and I had escape creativity constipation.
As I went about my day last week, this thought came into my head of what I should do next. I instantly thought it was a great idea because it allowed me to bring more positivity to this space.
With no further ado, I bring to you Affirmation Mondays. I will post an affirmation to help you start your week with good vibrations. These will be picked after deep pray and meditation. Do hope you enjoy!
It’s been two months since the beginning of the year and it’s time to check in:
How have you been?
Is your (mental, physical, spiritual, emotional) health ok?
Have you been saying your positive affirmations?
Have you been remaining positive?
Have you been accomplishing the goals you have set for yourself?
Have you been consistent with your objectives?
Have you been blessing the world with your magic?
Have you been loving yourself wholeheartedly?
Have you been tuning out the negativity?
Kudos to you if you have. I’m happy that you know your worth and you’re willing to maintain that level of consistency. I know there are days when curling up in a ball is the easiest thing, but you choose to go out there to shine bright. Remember you inspire people, so go out there and be that boss.
If you haven’t, there is still time to be your best self. You don’t have to wait until the end of the year, you can do it at any time with the right mindset. If you don’t feel like you are being pushed in that direction, it’s time to change your environment. Everyone is tasked to find their purpose in life; the longer you wait by engaging in distractions the further you are from your happiness. So do better and be better for your future self, success is waiting to be intimately acquainted with you. Sending positivity your way!
I meant to write this intro for the longest time; However, I didn’t feel it was the right time until now. As you may have seen on my blog, there is a section about this topic. I’m going to dive into different times where I should make peace with my past self. I feel it is time to forgive myself for setting the bar so high then guilting myself when I didn’t accomplish those tasks.
I learnt it is ok to go at my pace and that I determine when the speed/intensity increases. Comparing myself with others only made my self-esteem plummet. Getting older and experiencing so many things made it so important to be grateful for my existence on this physical plane. It is imperative to focus on embracing the positives even though it is minuscule in my eyes (so, therefore, it is so much more).
Waking up and returning home daily should be cherished because the uncertainty of death hits home so many times. I learnt to give myself time to be happy, to be sad, and being a workaholic, time to rest. I pay attention to all the signs that are presented by the universe. I am a creator in my own right so I intend to create things that will aid in the world’s blossoming. I now trust in myself to trust in the decisions I make. Overall, I need to know myself so I can take on any challenge I encounter.
I was scrolling through facebook and I was reminded about something I posted a year ago. It was a poetry project I had completed; I research the meaning of my names and wrote a descriptive paragraph about myself. Looking back at it now, I have to say that I have maintained the level of growth I wanted for myself. I have maintained:
my diet (what I consume in all aspects of my life)
my energy and the steps needed to protect it
My Name: Unfolded
The lioness knew that the light within her would guide her through the midst of uncertainty. Her wisdom would assist those who had lost their strength along the way. She fought hard to maintain the honour and victory within herself, never ceasing to forget her rock.
