Thursday Thoughts

What do YOU want to experience in this lifetime?

French philosopher Pierre Tielhard de Chardin is often credited with saying β€œWe are spiritual beings having a human experience.”

The truth is, none of us know how long we are here for so why not start experiencing what your heart desires… today?

Why do so many of us put off what we desire?

 

Mindset Monday

Having been working extensively on my negative mindset for almost a year now, it’s interesting to reflect.

On the one hand, I have come pretty far, and it has paid off greatly in so many different areas of life – I am now a firm believer that mindset really is the biggest piece of any puzzle. I see how much easier life is with a positive outlook and a firm belief in my ability to get through whatever life throws at me.

On the other hand, becoming so aware of mindset heightens my awareness of how negative other people (and this world in general) can sometimes be, and it can be quite a battle not to fall down that rabbit hole.

I am still a work in progress, which is why this is such a battle – as hard as I work, it is sometimes so easy to fall back into old habits!

It is worth the battle though, because truly, shifting my way to a more positive mindset is one of the greatest projects I have ever taken on!

Self Love Saturday – First Thing You Do

Is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning to hop on social media?

Guilty over here.

But, with how negative social media can be, is that really the best way to start a day? I don’t think it is.

Maybe starting with a positive podcast, or some personal development, or even just sitting in silence and soaking all the possibilities of the day up is a better way to go about it.

Who’s down to try it with me for at least a week?

Truthbomb Tuesday – Negativity

Can I get an eff yeah?!

I will own that I used to be the WORST offender of this – I cringe to thing of how negative I was. I’m still grateful to my mentors for calling me on it and TELLING, not suggesting, I work on this extensively. Best thing I could have done.

Which is why now, other peoples negativity really stands out more, I feel it and I feel the effects of it so much clearer. It was really draining me, which is why I have gotten better with distancing myself from negativity, allowing myself that space, without guilt.

Sometimes thats just what you need. It recharges you. It helps you remember what really matters, what to focus your energy on.

I have too many awesome things to do to let energy vampires steal it all!

Wednesday Wisdom – Positive Day

Bob is my maaaaaan. No seriously, my love of Bob is unmatched!

Anyways…. I have been focusing quite a bit on mindset and evicting the negativity that lives in mine. I am positive, upbeat, happy… but sometimes I have negative undertones, and I dislike that and it’s holding me back, so I have been Tapping extra on that.

We aren’t here for a long time; we are here for a good time. Make way for the positive day!

Wednesday Wisdom – Keep on Truckin’

What, this girl loves her some Grateful Dead! πŸ™‚

But no… life has been a challenge lately, the holiday season always does this, plus this year we have some other unique situations to sort through (can’t say what yet, don’t wanna jinx it!), and its just been hard. But life is hard. It’s also worth the challenges.

So today I am trying to be appreciative of what I have accomplished instead of focusing on what I have not yet accomplished. I am grateful to the lives I have touched, instead of bemoaning that I feel insignificant. I am thankful for the ability to work on my health and fitness. It’s challenging, but what fun would it be if everything just came easily, and without frustrations? Would we appreciate it as much?

I am of the belief we would not.

So as challenging and frustrating as things may be, it won’t always be that way. And your hard work will pay off. You will reap the rewards of the fruits of your labor, whatever it is for you.

Sometimes the light’s all shinin’ on me;
Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurres to me What a long, strange trip it’s been.

Truckin’, I’m a goin’ home. Whoa whoa baby, back where I belong,
Back home, sit down and patch my bones, and get back truckin’ on.
Hey now get back truckin’ home.
