Affirmations of the week!

Affirmations of the week!

Hello

Welcome, to this week’s Affirmations of the Week!

Positive Affirmations Every Monday!

Many of us struggle daily with our inner negative Nancy. Although, I have discovered a way to block out negative thoughts. It helps when I write down positive quotes and affirmations that make me feel confident and more at peace.

 When I find myself in a mood for the day, I refer back to the positive quotes and affirmations I’ve previously written to help snap out of the negativity. Happiness is a choice you have to choose every day. I know all too well how easy it can be to fall into that overthinking cycle of negativity and how difficult it can be to get out. That’s the reason I make these posts every Monday to help others like me break that cycle.

Affirmations

  • I am manifesting life of light and laughter.
  • I have more to be grateful for than I have problems.
  • I am a beautiful person, inside and out.
  • I pause my intrusive thoughts and replace them with calm ones.

Back to work

Back to work

As the holidays come to an end, I’m sure I can’t be the only one who has to go back to work here soon. I had a lovely time off, It’s always good to be home. I’ve been trying to stay moving. So that going wouldn’t physically hurt too bad. I’ve gotten better at my yoga! Proud of me for that. I have been getting more social with communities that are full of kind, inspiring people. I joined a book club and a Just Dance 30-day challenge! Things to keep me going while I travel for work this year. My work schedule is FULL, and that fact overwhelms me. Because this year, I wanted to focus on myself (and I still will.)

Sometimes it’s hard to stay humble, mindful, positive when everyone around you is disgustingly unhappy every single day. But this time around feels different. I feel more grounded and in-tune with my intentions on what I will give my energy into and what I will not. This year I will not lose myself in this job.

I hope 2022 has been treating you well so far.

Best wishes to come.

Ready to try again?

Ready to try again?

Hey!

Today I wanted to share a page from a magazine I love to read called “Breathe: Mental Health.”
It’s about being stuck in the overthinking cycle. And, offers some tips on how to give acceptance to second chances in yourself.
Failure is hard for some people. When we, fail we automatically put ourselves down for messing up then we never want to try again because of the experience that came with failure in the past.
This article inspired me to keep going, even if it isn’t what I expected.
Let me know what you think.

If you’re stuck in a frustrating loop with yourself and not sure how to move forward, here’s a three-point guide to giving or accepting a second chance

  1. It’s important to know that everyone sees situations through their own lens of the world.
    How could you try to consider things from the other person’s perspective? Ask yourself: “What could I be missing or not seeing right now? If I believe they’re doing the best they can, how would that change things?”
  2. The brain is wired to keep us safe. This means that a lot of the time people react from a place of fear and worry without realizing it. Deep down, they’re thinking: “What if I mess this up? What will they think of me? What if I fail?” To get out of this cycle, ask yourself: “What’s this really about?” And, the most popular question: “If I were to respond from a place of love, what would that look like?”
  3. Finally, check whether you’re offering this second chance for the right reasons. This means knowing yourself and your needs. What’s most important to you? Are you worried about what others will think or are you doing this because it really matters to you? If you’re trapped in that worry, or feeling like it’s a burden, then you might be stuck in your own fears. What is it you’re most afraid of? What could you do to remind yourself that you deserve this and you’re worthy? Also, if this is a fresh start that’s been granted, what’s the big lesson you’re taking away and how will you do things differently this time?

This page resonates with me when I struggle to explore my social anxiety. When I get, embarrassed I tend to close off who I am to protect myself. I’ll correct my personality to please the other person(s). Which, in the end, only makes me unhappy with who I am because of fear of not being accepted. It’s is something that keeps me from going outside because I don’t want to deal with people.

These questions help keep me grounded with my true self and in tune with my intentions with others. I’m not here to please everyone.
My mantra I’ve been using lately.—> “People aren’t going to like you. They don’t even like themselves.”

I hope you enjoyed today’s post.
Thank you for being here.

Random Prompt Question: List three of your “greatest hits” from the year 2021

Hey!

Here’s a random prompt question for you:

List three of your “greatest hits” from the year 2021.

This is what I wrote, short and sweet.

  1. Moving to Reno, NV was for sure one for the books that I’ll cherish, and remember for the rest of my life. I grew so much and became stable in life, and my relationship.
  2. Moving back to Texas to renovate our new home.❤️
  3. Lastly my favorite was being able to see how far I’ve come within a year. I’m incredibly proud of how strong I am and still becoming.

2021 was a year worth while. Both good and bad, but I’m still so blessed and forever grateful.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post. I’ll see you soon with another!
Please, feel free to write your thoughts on the prompt.
