Create the life you want with these quick tips……

#fridayinspiration

Feeling stuck and can’t seem to pull it together? Try these quick tips to manifest the life you want:

▪️Change Your Attitude:

This is hard for me too as I can get very upset and weary when my life isn’t going as plan, but you have to constantly look on the bright side and remember every small step is a Giant step toward your goals and you will get there.

▪️Set Up Your Day:

Try to start the day with prayer, meditation, or just some quiet time alone with your thoughts. This helps the

whole day flow smoother and in doing so you set yourself up for amazing things to come into your experience. I pray every morning to safe guard my thoughts and it usually works.

▪️ Keep Your Ideas 💡 To Yourself:

This may seem crazy 😜 since as soon an idea pops into your brain you’re ready to spread the word…but stop 🛑 . When you have a new idea, the energy around it is sacred to you. And when we share that energy before it’s ready, we risk losing it. You start sharing it and suddenly all the bad, negative energy vampires 🧛‍♀️ suck the life out you and your little idea😫

▪️You Must Take Action Now: don’t wait until you think you’re ready…if you have the vision, just start. Start the book, start the business, start whatever it is you’ve been dreaming about. Don’t put it off someone is waiting on your talents 👏🏾

▪️Own Your Greatness: say YES to your value, to serve, to receive money, to gaining clients! You deserve this and it’s your time to Shine 🌟 Say YES to good things coming to you.

There you have it, go out and get the life you been dreaming of😉

Mental Health Awareness Month💚

Boundary setting is an important, albeit difficult, part of self-care when a loved one is living with a mental illness. This may be harder and more complex for some than others. By setting boundaries, you are taking responsibility for how others treat you and your own needs seriously.

TIPS FOR HEALTHY BOUNDARY SETTING:

▪️Know Your Limits:

Before becoming involved in a situation, know what’s acceptable to you, and what isn’t. It’s best to be as specific as possible, or you might be pulled into the trap of giving just a little bit more, over and over, until you’ve given far too much.

▪️Listen To Your Emotions:

If you notice feelings of discomfort or resentment, don’t bury them. Try to understand what your feelings are telling you. Resentment, for example, can often be traced to feelings of being taken advantage of.

▪️Have Self-Respect:

If you always give in to others, ask if you are showing as much respect to yourself as you show to others. Boundaries that are too open might be due to misguided attempts to be liked by elevating other people’s needs above one’s own.

▪️ Be Assertive:

When you know it’s time to set a boundary, don’t be shy. Say “no” respectfully, but without ambiguity. If you can make a compromise while respecting your own boundaries, try it. This is a good way to soften the “no”, while showing respect to everyone involved.

Boundary setting is not easy and doesn’t occur overnight.

5 ways to Invest in Yourself:

•Know your limits and respect them

No one can take advantage of you if you don’t let them.

•Make money on the side. A side hustle can make you extra money on the side of your day job. And maybe even one day you can quit to work for yourself!😃

•Find a Buisness/Life coach

Your path to investing in yourself doesn’t have to be a solo trip. Find yourself a business/life coach or mentor who can guide you when you get discouraged or feel lost. (i.e. Me😉)

•Give yourself a break

You already know the importance of self-care but how often do you actually make time for this in your daily life?

•Read books and blogs, Books give you the power to learn new things and bust through career slumps or life!

“(Being well means) to me is doing everything within my power to stay physically and mentally able so I can do all the things I dream of doing in the future.”

What about you, what does being well look like and how can you do better if you haven’t been feeling well lately?

As we close out the month of May I want you all to remember that your mental health is very important. There’s no way you can focus on life, relationships, business, kids, or work if your brain isn’t functioning.

I know life gets hectic and you have people to care for, but who will care for them when your 6️⃣ feet under?????🤷‍♀️🏽

I learned a long time ago to put my mental health first by letting go, settings boundaries, and saying NO to what and who no longer serves me.😲

People say I’m mean, nasty, and don’t have to be like that….I laugh 😅 they better thank God I sought help, take meds, and got saved😂😂😂

So ladies, I say all this to let you know that things will only get better when you do and the first step in Self-Care is seeking help if you need to! Please check the free services in your area if your insurance doesn’t cover behavioral health! You owe it to yourself and to the others you care about around you!👍🏾

If you need help seeking help or advice on tackling that part of your life, let me be there for you!!!💞

Journaling Is Healing…

#tuesdaythoughts

How many of you journal? If not why not? Journaling can be very beneficial to your healing and it gives you a chance to write all those negative thoughts on paper 📝 instead of being stuck inside your brain causing stress!😣

I love to journal and love coming up with different questions to ask myself, then I come back to my journals to see if my answers have changed…you know to see my growth!

So if you don’t journal, you can write these questions and answers down and stick them in your bible or favorite book for later!📝

Here you go:👇🏾

•What habit would you most like to break? What habit would you most like to start?

• What are you most proud of?

•What are you most afraid of?

•Who would you like to connect (or reconnect) with? Why?

•What practical skills do you wish you had?

•If you could make one change in the world, what would it be?

•What excites you?

•What do you wish you did more of?

•Let’s jump forward a year. What would you like to have achieved in the past year?

Happy Journaling,

Do you hate being in pain? Silly question as no one enjoys pain. But when something bad happens in your life that makes you feel very hurt, do you tend to avoid the painful feelings it creates within you because it’s just too much to bear? Or do you suck it up and move the hell on?

Here are some positive affirmations to recite in the mist of that pain:

~Controlling my emotions is becoming easier and easier

~I am beginning to think logically, even in stressful situations

~Stressful situations are becoming easier to deal with

~I will deal with my emotions in a positive fashion

“One thing you can’t hide – is when you’re crippled inside”

All of us make mistakes all of the time, but when you make a mistake how do you feel?

I know for those of us who suffer from depression or anxiety can really be hard on ourselves. So what do you do when you fail or make a mistake?

Do you beat yourself up or do you learn and move on?

Making mistakes is a normal part of life. Taking responsibility and facing up to our mistakes is a great way to learn, and to avoid doing the same thing again.

As you figure out how to overcome the guilt of making mistakes you need to:

LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES

ACCEPT YOUR MISTAKES

STOP DWELLING ON YOUR MISTAKES

“Mistakes are a fact of life. It is the response to error that counts.” – Nikki Giovanni

“What is done cannot be undone, but at least one can keep it from happening again.” – Anne Frank
