Life is For Living…

Nine days ago was my last journal update( I know I know….it’s a long time)…

I wrote, “listen to yourself….the voice that’s in your heart and not your head; it’ll lead you to your goal!”What was I going through?? ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
What can I say….? It’s been a roller-coaster of events and emotions…as usual. It’s amazing how times pan out sometimes…WHOA!!
The mind is a battlefield indeed!!!
We lost a workmate due to a short illness and that really weighed down on us big-time. It was an emotional time to be honest and one that deeply engraved into us the true meaning on living in the moment. Life is indeed for living. May you dance with the angels buddy. 

So I sit and sip on my green tea and reflect on the days gone by and also on the lessons that come with everyday. 

I’ve been having fatigue. Physically. Emotionally. Whateverly…I mean really! I was actually looking for possible vacation locations just Incase… ( it’s good to be optimistic..it’s the thought that counts right?)..I have to make it happen sooner…
I realized that life like I said can pan out in interesting ways:-
1) Confusion: you become confused about your direction and focus as a human being. As it happens confusion can be a strong point in life….for it’s where you get to learn new things. It’s not easy but I’ve learnt to embrace confusion when it happens. You learn about people and situations better. Your eyes are opened. Ps: you are what you do, not what you say you’ll do. 
2) Brokenness: this is part of life. There are many things that break us,..but despite it all realize that it comes with healing. It’s never permanent. You learn to heal through music, art, friendships, getaways….
3) Frustration: when you’re frustrated you learn to make authentic decisions. Oh boy! This one is major. So many things can frustrate you. Grrrrrr (breathing in and out)! Lemmi not focus on it today. This tea is calming…Ps: you know you’re on the right track because things stop being easy!!

4) Sadness: oh this month has a fair share of sad moments๐Ÿ˜ฟ๐Ÿ˜ฟ๐Ÿ˜ฟ๐Ÿ˜ฟ๐Ÿ˜ž. But it’s during this time that you can hear your heart’s wisdom. Do not suppress this emotion at all. Cry if you have to but live through it. Ps: weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning.


5) Joy: this is to be experienced almost everyday. There are so many reasons to. Especially when you sit and realize that you’re here. Now. In this very moment. Healthy. Fed. Clothed. Be joyous at all times. 
I’m listening to Jazz. I’m calm. I’m feeling great. I never want to hide from my emotions. I used to but I’ve met people who have taught me not to suppress things. Even if you are stark raving mad. 
Life is for living. Be brave. Be authentic. Be ready. You’re worthy. Always!!!

Ps: when you take care of yourself, you’re a better person for others. When you feel good about yourself, you treat others better~ Solange!!

Self Care is Not Selfish…

Lucile Ball puts it so nicely, “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world!”

I couldn’t agree more. Life is busy. Many of us forget to self care because we are too busy….or rather, ‘too busy’…or ‘we don’t have time’….

BUT….we can create it as we make our other plans….as you schedule in other things in your busy days…don’t forget to include you!

A nice cup of coffee.or tea…with a good book or cake…. :-p

A massage…

A short trip…

A gym session…..

Whatever you love to do……DO IT!

We are often told to fall in love with taking care of ourselves ..MIND, BODY & SOUL!

This spiritual journey has nothing to do about being nice….being nice comes in when you are REAL. AUTHENTIC. HAVING/SETTING BOUNDARIES. HONORING YOUR SPACE FIRST….Then being nice comes in naturally….it Flows not motivated by fear but by Love….Love of self…. It all starts form you…. easy to say but very doable…..just fix it in your days/day….write it down and plaster it on your walls if you have to….lol

So find something that works for you and turn it into YOUR TIME!!

Here are some quotes to help you be authentic and to remind you that you also matter:-
