6:03 am

Standard

6:03am. Let me say that again. It’s 6:03am.

Why in these here Americas am I up this early on a Sunday morning.

Answer: I didn’t go to sleep. Okay I guess I had like a 45 min siesta. 

  
We still have cookies to make to take to my sister’s house. Probably shouldn’t have drank my wine before all of the batch was done. Meh 

I’m sure that I’ll be able to fall out soon. I’m gonna keep my fingers crossed 🤞. Pray for me. For real. Seriously.

I tend to over extend myself and still be up when most of the world is in a beautiful slumber. I guess I find it peaceful. The slowing down of the world’s energy. Calmness is intoxicatingly addictive.

  
Hopefully everyone enjoys today. Embraces your challenges and loves just to love. Spread a little sprinkle of kindness and blow kisses to the wind.

Well well 

Standard

Went to Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s for the first time last night. It’s hilarious how excited I get over the little things . I ate all the samples I could get my hands on. I’m going to blame it on the fact that I didn’t eat lunch 😂.

I noticed that my face was getting red while in the store. It started itching on the way home. By the time I looked in the mirror I realized that I was having an allergic reaction. Damn.

  
I told my gurl Tam that I’m allergic to the planet earth 🌏. She laughed at me, but seriously I break out at the thought of breaking out. 

  
Woke up from my Benadryl induced nap and ate the equivalent of nothing. Yogurt that is. I needed a quick boost of energy because I was definitely woozy. 

Now I’m up and checking my timelines. I finished some editing and of course I’m jamming to the beat of my Christmas music channel on Pandora. A toe tapping good time at 3:23 in the am. 

Friday is shaping up just fine. I’m doing a double cookie day. One with my parents and one with my sister this weekend. 

Finding joy in simplicity is the key for my happy days. I’m embracing the facts of life. I’m thankful for another day and I’m grateful for the blessings brought to me from above. 

Hopefully this day will be great!

Sending you peace and blessings on this beautiful day 🍪🍡

Namaste ✨

Understanding 

Standard
Understanding 

Have you ever been joking around with someone and they start to tickle you? 

First it feels weird. Then it may feel silly so you start to laugh and yell stop in the mist of your laughter. But when your done with it and the person doesn’t stop tickling you a little panic sets in. Anxiety takes over and now your either yelling, kicking and hitting or crying because the person took the joke too damn far. This unfortunately means that there was a breakdown in understanding.

  
That’s where I am today. I’m done being tickled. I’m no longer laughing at the joke that life keeps trying to play on me. When I love someone really love someone I’m not in the mood for games. My heart breaks like anyone else and my dreams for the future are as important as anything else. 

I made a decision to chase my dreams. A little bit late, but better now than never. I’m relying on the heavens above to point me in the right direction as I do the work. I’m concentrating on calming the storm within and listening to the hum of the universe. I’m being careful not to let my ego take over. 

I can write about being a better person. I can write about finding peace. I can write about standing in my truth but if I’m not willing to walk the walk I’m a fraud to myself. I’m not being honest with myself and that eventually that would make me dishonest with anyone reading this blog. 

I’m real serious about this walk. I’m real serious about living an in a attitude of gratitude and I’m beyond serious about finding love. Make no mistake that I’m still human. I hurt, I cry, I hope for the future but I’m doing all these things in reality. I love, I guide and I live with my decisions. I’m thankful on a daily basis. I’m grateful that I was given this chance. I literally thought that I told everyone who helped guide me on this journey thank you. I thought I covered my past with a blessing and I started walking in peace. 

That’s all I can do. 

Walk. Forward.

  
I forgive the past I pray the past has forgiven me. I’m happy and healthy. My mind is at ease. I’m looking forward to the future whatever it may be. Namaste has become my way of life. I got on my knees and asked the divine for the things that I wanted in the world. From that day I started to prepare myself for my prayers to be answered. I’m preparing myself for my dreams to be manifested in real life ,in real time, and with real people.

No matter how hard it feels to be out of my comfort zone I keep going. I had an amazing coach who taught me to push past the tears to face my fears and get out of my own way. I hope he takes his own advice. 

There’s greatness out here in these streets. There’s hope for a better tomorrow and there’s changes to be made for anyone who’s willing to change. That’s what I’ve learned on this journey. 

Love resides inside of me. I’m thankful to be able to write about it. To be able to share my gratitude to others and for the people who have helped me along the way. I know that there’s love waiting on me as I walk into my destiny. I know that I’m going the right direction and that I’m on a beautiful path. I’m enjoying the views and taking mental pictures as I say  “Thank you universe for another day of life!!!!”

It’s another gorgeous Tuesday morning. The day has beautiful gifts to be uncovered and hope goes a long way when I’m tired and running out of zen. 

The power within hits the recharge button. I then listen to a little music and I open my heart up to the love surrounding me. 

Here’s a quick way to release some tension through yoga.

Easy like a Sunday morning 

Standard

Early on a Sunday morning. It’s peaceful  light from the television and chatter from the show playing is relaxing. 

My mind is at ease. 

I had a drama free birthday. Whaaat. It’s almost unbelievable. 

  
My Saturday was awesome. I went to dinner with the ladies on Friday night and hung out a seen Daddy’s Home part two Saturday. It was pleasantly delightful and full of the Christmas spirit. Seeing men being family focused and laughing with my high school friend Nani made the day wonderful. 

  
I got my favorite cake! Woo woo!!! It was definitely delicious. 

  
Even though my life is in transition I’m not worried. My Nebraska friends and family have had me covered. I’ve been visiting and catching up on the past five years. 

It’s bittersweet to have to storytell my journey. Accessing the painful memories of the past isn’t always comfortable but it’s a healing process. I have to say that I’m on the right path for that. 

Love is a lifestyle choice. 

I’m glad that I’m surrounded by it and that I now receive it as much as I give it. I’m stepping back and allowing time to deal with situations that require me to let go and let God handle them. I’m thankful and it feels good.

Piece of peace

Standard

When dealing with people I find myself analyzing the best approach. Everyone has their own set of guidelines that they process and respond to. I want to reach out to others in a way that works for them but also for myself so that we have meaningful conversations.

Conversations that are helpful, and a blessing to each other’s lives. 

It took me what feels like forever to reach this understanding. 

To embrace the positive things about everything. Every interaction. Every thought, feeling and emotion. It was as if a light switch went on and I was no longer a victim because I was no longer allowing myself to be victimized. 

I’m not fighting. I’m training my mind to handle itself. By learning how to respond to life with a mindset that reduces the impact of negative noise. 

I’ve been in darkness and I danced my way out. I enjoyed family and friends. I studied the ways of peace. I leaned on others for positive understanding and I welcomed changes. I grew up in a sense. 

  
This is why I feel amazing. My  circumstances didn’t change drastically but my thoughts have gotten better. My mood has gotten better. I’m seeing better results in my business. My social media is looking better. My health is evolving and I’m actually thankful that I’m alive. I went from wanting to die to wanting to live. 

It feels so good to have a little piece of peace daily. 

It’s Wednesday night and the weather is calm. I’m in agreement with the universe. I’m happy and in a good spirit and I am sending peace and blessings your way.

Have an amazing night and hopefully peaceful dreams. 🌛

Quietly 

Standard

Morning has arrived and I’m at a peace of mind.

Finally had a decent night’s sleep. Man oh man did I need it. 

  
The mind can get distracted and confused when running on empty. In this society the things that we see daily take little pieces of our minds and jumble them up. It becomes very important to quite the noise outside of our own consciousness. 

  
My decisions are taking longer. I’m tiptoeing through situations because the need to run has often set me back in time. Forward motion doesn’t always take planning sometimes it just takes for me to trust my own intuition. 

I’m happy when I wake up. I’m happy when I go to sleep. I’m enjoying life and I feel blessed daily. 

Goodness and kindness keeps me feeling alive. I’m aware and focused on actually being connected to my life instead of watching it like a spectator.

It’s a beautiful Wednesday and I hope you all are well.

Namaste day

Standard

Oh how wonderful it is to find my center. I just did a cool mediation. I started it months ago and forgot about it. 

I had a moment of questioning and trying to figure out how things keep getting twisted and turned. Especially when all I want to do is press forward. I just couldn’t understand how and why. After I decided that there where things that I really want to see and I’m not I had to stop myself. 

There was one question I hadn’t asked. Why am I looking outwardly for something that I have inside? My version of my life is always going to look different than anything that someone else can see. They can’t understand my version because they don’t live with my emotions or feelings. What looks like one thing to the naked eye looks like a different one on the inside of the person going through it. 

My perception of another persons pain means nothing to the person going through it. At that point all I can do is what I think is right according to my life, my thoughts, my ego, and my heart. 

Well,what a concept. 

Today I’m going to do things that are helpful. Change my speech to uplifting and encouraging. To myself and others. 

  
I took the time to recharge my energy. Find a positive outlook and heal my soul. It’s a great day to have a great day. 
C.L Cunningham 

Have a happy Sunday and a beautiful life. 

And if nobody has told you today I will 

You are perfect and everway because there’s nobody else like you 💋

Namaste 🌞
