Its a daily Process. It never gets old!

mutwoki's Blog

When was the last time you listened to the sound of your own Breathing?
When you’re faced with difficult situations you should learn how to just BREATHE!!
Right! Right! Right!
Admittedly, I often forget. At times I realize I am holding my breathe unknowingly and have to let it out In a slow exhale as I figure out what it is that made me hold it all in the first place…
Ragged.. Unpredictable… Strange… Twisted…. Life can be all these at times…
Breathe….
That’s why we all sometimes need pick-me-ups….. If you don’t need at least one then you’re not human enough…..sorry..LOL!
Feeling down? Going thru a rough time? Need a hug? Or two?
Breathe!!
So a good pick-me-up has a wide range. For fresh starts and fab ways to tackle the day…

Take a long shower…

Wear something extremely comfy….I love my black canvas shoes….

Perfume goes a long…

Quotable Quotes…

life

You Don’t have to see the entire Staircase, just take the First step….

What are you Thankful For…?

…..’Cause I’d get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance
A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
The disco ball is just hanging by a thread
(Thread, thread…)….

OwlCity was rocking on radio and my Mind had been fixated on my yester-night.

What are you grateful for?

After our bedtime routine of snacking (more for my Son than I…Lol), brushing our teeth and stories….and before our usual prayer, I asked my him what he was thankful for…for that day…

His answer amazed me.

He said:

  • I am thankful for Prayers because he loves to Pray
  • I am thankful for my teacher
  • I am thankful that he was a good boy in school…lol
  • I am thankful for food
  • I am thankful that I played in the swings today….

Notice the simplicity of the things he is grateful for. It humbled me a hundred fold.

OH! How Cute!!!

He asked me what i was Thankful for and for me its a whole lot…

  • For my life
  • For health
  • For motherhood
  • For friendships
  • For food and water
  • For my job
  • For Peace of mind
  • For music like Fireflies which calms your soul….

Then he said, ‘I am thankful for all that too…lol!’

There is something about spending time with a child that humbles you. REALLY!

It’s in the simple moments, simple Simple priceless moments!

What are you Thankful for? REALLY?

However small?

So we bowed down to pray our usual prayer…

“God in Heaven, Hear My Prayer, Keep me in Thy loving Care, Be my guide in all I do and Bless all those who love me too…”

AMEN…..and AMEN!!

Quotable Quotes…

Stop being on auto-pilot, Put yourself first, 

Recognize yourself, 

Stop pleasing other people,

or chasing some version of success that doesn’t resonate with you,

No need to numb it out with food, shopping, booze, TV, or other distractions,

Stop being worn down, beat up, stressed out, and completely depleted…. 
Wake Up

Live Intentionally!!! 

 

The Year Gone By…

Most of the talk going on at this time of the year is more about resolutions which is pretty okay. It’s the third day of 2017 after all. ( HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE😊💐). 
I think for me it’s always been about lessons learnt and just how to go on from there. With a new perspective. New insight. Step by step. Bit by bit. One day at a time..
Today is a good day to have a good day. Recovering from the long hours on the road. The holiday was good. Mangoes. Sunglasses. Mangoes. Hats. Mangoes Sandals. Mangoes…..lol. Happy Feet as they stepped on the sand. The walks on the beach. The water as we dived into it….aaaah, the Beach. Such a Happy place to be….What more do you need. Therapy reloaded. I could never ask for a better time off. To unwind. Shake off some of the shitty things of the year gone by… But also to celebrate and be thankful for all the blessings and lessons from it!!!

Every year has it’s share of ups and downs. Well, it’s pretty obvious as it’s the norm. I have learnt some major things. And hard lessons…

That; 

It’s okay to put yourself first. It’s not selfish at all.

It’s okay to breathe easy. Shake off bad vibes. 

It’s okay to not dwell on negativity. 

It’s okay when people don’t prioritize you..esp people you hold ‘dear!’ 

It’s okay to be broke and coz you learn how to budget better. 

It’s okay to smile even when you feel broken. 

It’s okay to cry and scream if you want to…let out steam.

It’s okay to work hard and reward yourself. 

It’s okay to enjoy the music and the lyrics too. 

It’s okay to skip a day of exercise if you are not up for it( but not for long though)..lol

It’s okay to have more than one mug of coffee. 

It’s okay to feel appreciated and loved. 

The list is long…

But; 

It’s not okay to be around toxicity. 

It’s not okay to be made to feel unworthy. 

It’s not okay to be hold stuff inside. 

It’s not okay to let people belittle your ambitions. 

It’s not okay to postpone travel when you have time. 

The list is also long…

All in all. I am grateful for:

Family. 

Laughter. 

Motherhood. 

A job. 

Friendships. 

Forgiveness. 

Giving.

Providence.( God had been good)

Joy. 

Even the tears!!

When all these come together they reveal just how human I can be. Am more than happy as I say that my almost daily prayer will be and has been, “for this far I am in my life, THANK YOU GOD!!!”

And after-all:

There are two ways to be happy:

Improve your reality or lower your expectations. 

Have A Good year with Fresh Vibes and Good Times. Learn. Learn. LEARN!!
