Taking Charge In a Good Way
I am the person in charge of my life and how I live it! I am the person in charge of my calm and peace. I am the person in charge of my happiness and enjoyment. I am the person in charge of living the life I do have and wanting more of it!
Taking Charge and Steering
The hardest part for me is keeping my emotions, feelings and thoughts in check! I have to remind myself that I can change the way I think and think differently about certain things. I just have to put it into practice way more than I actually do! I think sometimes gaining a different perspective on certain things can be a good thing. I cannot live my life in just black and white!
I started setting boundaries for myself not to guard myself, but to have the ability to not take everything so serious and personal at times! It is that boundary between what my mind and my emotions is picking up on versus what is truly happening to and around me.
Setting . . . Letting . . . Releasing
The one power I have been using more of lately is “No!”. I want to commit to a few things that I do really well and not get wrapped up in the overall crazy busyness. I tend to lose myself and my sense of self when I try to take it all on and try to do it all. It does not work and it is exhausting too!
I feel in being self aware I am more accepting of myself and who I truly am when it comes to living a fuller and healthier life! I am working on being more mindful and in the present moment. I want to gain those life lessons and those life experiences in order to grow as a person for the better. I am so lucky for what I do have in my life!
I feel in being self aware I am able to get back on my feet and be able to cope with what life hands me too! I am going to experience certain things in my life that I really do not want to deal with. However, I know I have the skills and the support from others to help me deal with it and to keep me moving forward. I prefer to have a positive outlook and a good laugh when the going gets rough too!
Gaining . . . Growing . . . Experiencing
The one thing I would like to do better in my life is to communicate, interact and connect better when it comes to the people in my life! I want to create, develop and build healthier relationships; quality not quantity. I want to be more supportive and listen more to develop a deeper level of connectedness! I know I feel much better when my mental and emotional needs are in balance, especially with the my physical needs too.
I so need to have that balance between work and play! I love doing something creative and outside of the box. I enjoy having a good time and having fun doing it. I crave great escapes and greater adventures!
