Wednesday Wisdom – BE the CHANGE

Stop whining about XYZ, and DO something about XYZ😉

You get a LOT more accomplished when you put your feet to the ground and make moves instead of sitting on your ass bemoaning all the stuff that is wrong with the world (and to be fair, there is a lot wrong in this current landscape, at least where I am from – the USA – but that just means we need MORE action and less griping!

Wednesday Wisdom – Sensitivity is a Gift

Truer freakin’ words…

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told I’m too sensitive, and I used to see that as a bad thing, but not anymore!

The world NEEDS more sensitive, empathetic people. It’s HARSH out there, and it’s so easy to feel alone, but we are never alone!

Less looking down on people who are sensitive, more looking up to people who can see outside their own problems and show compassion for others 💕

 

Wednesday Wisdom – The Path to Inner Peace…

Rafiki with the wisdom!

Sorry for the language, but… 🙌🏼

It’s true, and its such a valuable lesson to learn… not all things are your problem to address. Realizing as such is powerful AND helps you control the stress load you take on, which as we know, contributes to EVERYTHING, such as handling illness, disease, keeping yourself healthy… everything.

Stress is a real issue (spoken like a true Diabetic who realized first hand what stressing over everything was doing to my health – nothing good!)

We have enough on our plates without absorbing everyone else’s issues too!

Make this your mantra 😊

 

Wednesday Wisdom – You Can’t Pour From An Empty Cup

You know how on a plane, they tell you in the event of an emergency, put your own oxygen mask on first…?

Sometimes, I tend to care about stuff TOO much.

Draining.

It’s not uncommon for me to put the feelings of others ahead of my own.

Draining.

I would often so much rather avoid any confrontations or difficult conversations that I sit and stew, til the lid tends to boil over, and then I APOLOGIZE. Apologize for FEELING.

Draining.

I am quick to excuse people, to act like I don’t deserve respect, basic human decency, or common courtesy.

Draining.

But… all the personal development I have done over the years FINALLY clicked.

And I REALIZED…

I MATTER. My NEEDS matter. My FEELINGS matter.

And since how you treat yourself is how others treat you – there’s gonna be some changes up in here. I am an empathetic person, I am always willing to listen and help someone, but I will no longer be sacrificing my own feelings and my own wellbeing for that.

You can’t pour from an empty cup. Trust me, I have tried, and tried, and tried. You can’t.

Wednesday Wisdom – With Brave Wings, She Flies

“I could never do what you do!”

I get this message way more than I’d like and it makes me sad… and my response varies, but it’s usually along the lines of “have you even tried?” or “not with that attitude!” because here’s the thing…

I had those same limiting thoughts. I thought I couldn’t do the things too. In fact, 5 years ago I almost said no to Rebecca’s challenge group invite because I was convinced I couldn’t do it due to lingering injuries.

And some things I couldn’t (and some things I still can’t!) do…

…but the difference is I was willing to •try•
I was willing to •fail•
I was willing to •modify•

I was willing to check those limiting beliefs at the door and see what I’m capable of when my MIND and my BELIEF IN MY SELF are in the drivers seat.

I was willing to go in open minded, instead of weighed down by the baggage of what I might not be able to do.

And with that shift came a lot of power. I no longer watch new programs come out and think “I could never do that”, instead I start at Day 1 and I build. And fail. And modify. It’s not always pretty…

But it starts with being brave enough to TRY. You can’t FLY if you don’t TRY.

GO FLY.
