Continues for 2013
I have 3 things I would like to work on for my journey of self in 2013!
Being in the Present Moment
I just want to BE! Especially in the present moment. It is such a freeing experience when you can focus on what is in front of you! You can just relax into living your life in that moment.
I have learned that there is no such thing as multi-tasking because you usually end up doing everything half-arsed! Why not do one thing at a time and do it to the best of your ability instead. I actually find I have more energy in doing one thing at a time. I discovered all that busyness gets nothing accomplished!
I just feel more connected and grounded when I am in the present moment! My body and mind are in sync and focused in on the task at hand. I do not feel my mind racing at 90 miles an hour while my body is trying to keep up at 15 miles an hour! I certainly feel more in control of my emotions and stress.
Stop & Soak It In!

Taking Control of My Life
I am trying to get my emotions under control and take control of my life once again. Not feed my emotions with the negativity and stressors in my life that I have no control over. I think it is okay to have feelings and emotions, but it is how you manage it that counts. I know I need to take back that control; it is my life!
I gave up on myself and the trust that I have in myself! That is one hard lesson to experience in your life. I could not find that “happy medium and it just sucked the energy out of me at times! It affected my entire being as well as those around me that I share my life with.
The hopelessness and hurt as well as the loneliness and insecurity can just bring you to your knees at times. You feel as if an essential part of you has just been torn out and replaced with this crazy, angry being! It impaired my good judgment and my overall behaviors. I was a little shocked what you will and can do when pushed to the breaking point!
You just feel so overwhelmed and unsure how to act/react, fight/flight or protect/surrender!

Living Life with Gratitude & Humility
I am trying to live my life with gratitude; giving and receiving it! A little humility thrown in there does not hurt either. It is really the small things in life that matter the most! Plus just sharing it and celebrating it with your greatest someones too.
Saying “thank you” is one thing and doing it with a comment of kindess is another thing! I am learning how to receive comments of kindness and compliments better. Just take it to heart and embrace the goodness in your life is an amazing experience! Being appreciative and humble is a great way to discover gratitude in your life.
Another discovery is being open to the possibilities, which includes being open to change too! Just open that level of trust and be more accepting. Life will just pass you by if you let it! Really grab on tight and hang on for the ride of your lifetime.
Do not take anything for granted in your life!
