Frozen in time

Sometimes the mind plays a game of running and chasing. Running from a feeling,thought,or emotion.

This war goes on inside of us until we are weary or frustrated sometimes angry.

These are all signs of grief.

Let go of the things that no longer serve your spirit and open up room for blessings and love to come in.

Happy Monday luvs

Nighttime reality 

Day has turned into night and Wednesday is about to be a wrap.

Spent the day putting together my latest book. A small novella based on a fictional story that I started from right here on this blog. Some good old fashioned fiction with a twist of mystery. 

I told myself I’d have one done by December and by George I mean what I say. Being an indie author has a special place in my heart. I do it for me and that’s enough. My stories all have a piece of my soul my written babies. 

After a long day of writing and editing I needed a nice way to unwind. Yoga is my go to form of stress relief. I’m super thankful that my totally awesome sister got me a new yoga mat from BalanceFrom Goyoga through Amazon. She picked out a grey mat with lots of comfort when I do floor stretches. Which is very important when I’m bending and kneeling this way and that way. 

Yoga is a great way to start easing the stresses in your life. It brings together mind, body and soul through breathing and allowing the movements free you. 

  

  
Feeling refreshed and offically sleepy I’m ready to eat some dinner and hit the cloud of dreams awaiting me.

Have a good evening and peaceful slumber everyone.💋

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.

Tick tick boom

My anger has reached an all time high today. I won’t let it get in my way. I went from venting to chastising. From chastising to boxing. From boxing to mediation. 

From mediation to the home that’s within myself.

I will find a healthy medium. My goals are self motivated. My heart isn’t yet mended and my fear of finding someone true seems to be more relevant everyday. I thought I had faced my anger. But I guess that I just tucked it away to appear normal. It was buried deep down inside where I didn’t even know it was. I’m sure the pressure to be silent had something to do with it. The pressure to work through it doesn’t make it better it just covers it up. 

Now that I’m free it’s front and center and needing to be healed so here I am healing it. Mediational music calms my soul and spirit. Thank goodness for this form of health care. 

There’s no bottle that I can drink myself under. There’s no puff of smoke that takes it away. They’re just there to conceal the pain. I have no vices to use. Today I haven’t use any. Just me and my truth. Me and my heart. Me and my feelings. Healing. I am healing. I deserve to heal. To deal with the failures and reactions of my past. The choices for my future and the benefits this healing will bring into my future. 

I’m finding my way. It looks different than I had hoped and it will be alright in the end. I just have a feeling that I’m in for an unexpected surprise for the future. 

Gifts come and go. Friends aren’t always friends forever but as I grow the truth will come out. Set me free again and build me up if ever again I fall. Lamar Odom Jr said it best yesterday on the Victoria secret fashion show. Fall seven times get up eight. I’m still standing. All because I won’t let nothing get me down. There went the boom. 

It’s out of my system for tonight. I pray that it doesn’t return tomorrow but just in case it does I have the coping skills to handle it. I put some mediation music down below for anyone with a ticking clock inside of them to help through the bs of the world.

It’s truly away of life✨🌙

A life unwritten 

What a day November the 16th was. I’m beyond disbelief of where my life is headed. Health scares and examples of how things used to be. Rebuilding a life…hmm. Let’s just say that’s it’s different from walking the un paved road to uncertainty. 

I’m focused on getting somewhere that my mind, heart, and body can align. Enlightenment or the lack there of is confusing at times. I’m always looking for the real. As if the fake is any less real. If the world has been given both to use then who am I to judge? 

Nothing is more beautiful than truth. 

Talking about the past. Laughing at how many changes had to be made to get to this point. The truth about becoming accepting to myself and others.

  
It’s scary and has its way of making me do better even when my ego is at it’s own coming out party. Ssh. I tell mine to shut the f**k up on days that it’s leading me in the wrong direction. 

  
I thought that once I knew everything that I wanted to learn that my days would be easier. Nope. 

I thought that once I opened my love freely that it would freeze the hurts and right the wrongs. Nope. 

So here I lay with my favorite pose and a good show to laugh at. Thinking thoughts of what could have been and were things could go. I found a post on IG that sums up my mood for this Friday. Kindness.

  
I can be kind to myself. I can be kind to others. I can achieve goals and stay a decent person. Wonderful. 

The yogis look for peace in a place of chaos and I’m just looking for chaos to evolve into love.

Avoidance is a nifty tool.

Ignoring something at an alarming rate.

The pros and cons are probably endless but I’m avoiding those too.

  
Feeling down sneaks up like a clumsy burglar trying to get goodies from an empty house. Goes away as fast as it appears.

  
It becomes up to me to redirect my mind. 

To pick thoughts that empower my positivity.

Thoughts that bring me back to my center and lift me up.

Mediation and yoga helps me regain a sense of self. Brings me calm and peace even on days that things have gone haywire. 

If relief is as easy as stretching and letting my mind find it’s own off button. Then I’m totally in!

Oh noooo!

Well the past few days has been trying to say the least.

A series of unfortunate events and circumstances arouse and once again the fight or take flight test showed up again. 

In those moments my anxiety starts to take off! I mean it goes from  zero to 100 real quick.

It starts in my mind. Then slowly creeps up my toes into my stomach and eventually takes over my body and spirit. 

I’m thankful for divine signs that point you in the right direction. That give you clarity. Today I came across a great quote about anxiety and I want to share it with everyone. It gave me some peace of mind and I hope it’s a blessing to you on this Sunday morning.
