Get your priorities straight!
It's Monday and that means that most of us are hustling to get shit done and plan out what needs done this week. But did you put happiness on the agenda? Did you plan to do things that also bring you pleasure, aside from the regular to-dos'? I have a funny feeling that for many of us, happiness and pleasure take a back seat in our weekly plans.
But why is that? I think it has something to do with our belief that pleasure for the sake of pleasure can be a waste of precious time; however, I'm here to tell you that it's not! When planned with some purpose into your weekly or daily schedule, or if you at least leave free space for YOU without the intentional planning, I believe that it makes you a better person who shows up more fully for pretty much everything..work, kids, husbands, coworkers, etc. In other words, make time for your joy, and watch your week feel a lot more productive and enjoyable! #mondaymantra
It's the last week of 2015. Another year has come to a close, and we are left with that time in between Christmas and New Year's to reflect. To think back on all that has happened. To think about what went great and what didn't go so great. To smile at the remembrance of joy and bow to what the disappoints and sadness taught you.
This brief, but awkward time in the calendar year can become less odd if you take the time to go inward and delve deep. To prepare for the coming year and get crystal clear on where you want to head. So get a cup of tea, grab a notebook and pen, and get to envisioning, sister!
Here's to another beautiful year. And so it is....
Do you know that you're enough?
We are so hard on ourselves. We constantly judge ourselves, second guess ourselves, ridicule ourselves, and yet none of it is valid, let alone worth our time and energy. We do no good by telling ourselves we aren't enough. Really though, who benefits in that situation? No one.
At our core we are all of the same big, beautiful light. One connected spirit. There is no one better than or worse than. We are all equal and of the same divine greatness. If I am enough, then you are enough, and if you are enough, then I am enough.
Perfectly imperfect. #mondaymantra
What makes you happy?
It's really pretty simple, and yet we make it so damn hard..
What makes you happy? It doesn't have to be anything elaborate, and a lot of the times, it isn't. It's simple things. It's the smell of your favorite fall candle; that Podcast that always has the most interesting discussions; or maybe having a stack of books on your coffee table. Whatever makes your heart happy, pursue it, aim for it, surround yourself with it.
Happiness and feeling good is the goal. #whatmakesyouhappy #mondaymantra
THIS IS IT.
What do you want? What would make your heart sing? What would make you jump out of bed in the morning? What does your soul desire?
This is the beginning. #mondaymantra #beginnings
