Friends, Let me share something powerful and intimate with you.
Friday: I sent my husband this message . .
Saturday: I was listening to a podcast while cleaning the house. I heard a phrase that resonated with me and immediately ran to put it in my notes so I wouldn’t forget it.
Sunday: I’m Listening to a sermon LIVE online. The pastor is talking about serving, following your heart and figuring out what you are called to do. He states “God cannot steer a parked car, so get moving. Get busy and the rest will fall into place”.
Friends, If that isn’t a sign, I just don’t know what is.
So, that’s what I’m going to continue to do; Get moving, get busy and get back on track.
And I personally invite you on my journey to get going, and start fresh.
First things first love, take shame and throw it out the window.
Who cares if you have fallen off the wagon 15 times.
Nobody is perfect and life happens. So, forget all those feelings of shame and judgement that society has casted upon you. The only thing that matters is that even when life gets in the way and you veer off track, you always continue to get back on.
You know what they say, “It’s not how many times you fall, but how many times you get back up. So cliche, yet so true.
All it takes is getting into a routine filled with positivity and things start seamlessly falling into place once that positive energy resonates.
So, I would love to share with you the things that I’ve been doing, that have been helping me and encourage you to do them as well.
Journaling, (or in my case blogging). It’s a journal but, a public one. Why? To help and inspire others while helping myself and holding myself accountable because I truly feel like it’s something God keeps calling me to do.
Exercising: although I am doing it for weight purposes, I am also not trying to put to much pressure on myself with it. Instead, I’m doing it when I have time, and enjoying the benefits of how good it’s making me feel.
Stating Daily affirmations: I love doing these with my daughter in the morning or in the evening. We simply utter positive things about ourselves, encouraging self love and positivity.
Attending Service: Y’all we are incredibly busy. All. The. Time. However, we have made a promise to ourselves that even if we don’t make it to church physically, we will listen to a sermon on our phone or computer, even if it’s while multitasking.
Being self-aware and reflecting: I think it’s so important to be self-aware and reflect on the things you’ve been doing, while coming up with ways to improve.
Listening to Motivational and Inspirational podcasts: this something I have found to be the most effective. It keeps me ignited and on track more than anything else. I truly believe that who and what you surround yourself with is so important and that positive energy fuels positive energy.
I strongly encourage you to do these 8 things to get started. Join me in that positive headspace so we can get back to thriving together.
We’ve got a purpose, so let’s get moving and find it!
