Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
Ground Control to Major Tom (Ten, nine, eight, seven, six)

Commencing countdown, engines on (Five, four, three, two)
Check ignition and may God’s love be with you (Two, one, liftoff)

This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in the most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today ~ Space Oddity – Bowie

BEing

BE Curious

Get curious and explore! Let your creative side loose. Let your inner kid come out to play, laugh and have fun. Be and do what makes you happy and makes your whole being feel good!

Here’s another thought on being curious . . . do you tune and tap into what you are EXPERIENCING in your curiosity! 

What are you experiencing?

  • It it a teaching lesson.
  • It is a growth experience.
  • Do you just need to be with yourself for that moment.
  • Does it require no action and doing nothing in that moment.
  • Does it require you to act and take action.
  • Are you in a place of awareness.

It takes you and the experience to another level in connecting and engaging! Pause to soak it in. Center to focus in. Check in your whole being to experience!

Think about discovery and the possibilities waiting out there for you to grab!

BE Open

Are you on auto pilot or manual? Practice listening instead of speaking and/or doing. Tune in versus out. Be alert and open. Be awake and aware. What is at least one thing you can take away or learn today?

  • To be open and put yourself out there to learn, grow and experience.
  • To be the best version of yourself and to do that through self love, care, kindness, and compassion.
  • To be flexible in exploring and discovering as well as growing and experiencing.

Think about movement! To give you clarity and calmness. To give you balance and stability. To wander and ponder. It helps you work through things, figure out solutions and just keep moving!

To Just BE

  • To be mindful and present.
  • To be your time keeper in how and what you spend your time and energy on.

Think about being completely present in what you are doing right at that moment! Make the time to focus on the task at hand. To be fully engaged and connected. It is so worth it!

BE the Stretch

How can you stretch your comfort zone? It truly starts from within in how you feel. That inquiry in asking yourself what you need and why!

  • Finding the meaning and what matters in your why.
  • Awakening and growing . . .
  • Opening yourself up to the possibilities.
  • Discovering and experiencing . . .
  • Putting your focus and energy on what you truly need.
  • Empowering and emerging . . .

Think about quality versus quantity when it comes to your being, health and wellness and life in general!

BE the Moment

What are those moments that made you proud that you went for it and did it?

  • Those moments that are exciting and freeing at the same time.
  • Those moments that make you satisfied and fulfilled.
  • Those moments where your whole being is in play; mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually! 

 That is authentic and abundance all rolled into one whole package! To be strong in your whys and empowered to meet your needs. To reach your full potential by knowing who you are and what works best for you.  That self reflection, that self inquiry, that self check . .

Let It Be

“Words of Wisdom”

I recently read an article about letting things be! I know I have discussed releasing and letting go on my blog. However, this got me thinking. There is a difference when it comes to “letting go” versus “letting be”! 

  • Letting be versus fixing.
  • Loosening versus eliminating.
  • Easing versus “over” . . .
  • Simplifying versus complicating.

In letting things be you create space to respond and/or react to what is happening to you. Also, to what is going on around you. To actively listen in order to connect to yourself in how you receive and respond to yourself as well as others.

  • Do you have control?
  • Do you have a choice?

At the heart of it though is creating that space you need for you!

Think about tuning into your comfort levels too!

  • To love you for you through kindness, care and compassion.
  • To let yourself be who you are.
  • To be and do for you.
  • To take time to relax and rest.
  • To make time for you and your needs.

My Word for 2018

Health

I am making a healthier and happier me a priority in 2018! Continuing to discover my strong. Continuing to be thankful in what my whole being does for me, especially when I take care of myself.

Love, Care, Kindness, Compassion . . .

Miss Katie over at Healthy Diva Life gives me clarity and light bulb moments with her posts. Thank you! I love when women love and support as well as inspire and empower the women around them.

My recent light bulb moment stems from being in a crossroads right now in living my life. Am I on the right track? What sign or direction am I looking for to get me moving forward again? Here is the light bulb going off – I have been changing my lifestyle, but my mindset got left behind! 

Being Real, Taking Risks and Having No REGRETS!!!

I am changing that in 2018 for myself! I recently wrote a post called 4 Buckets and there was my sign and a sense of direction for myself. It truly resonated with me at that moment! However, I need to take it to the next level for myself and my whole, well being.

I have two major goals in mind for 2018.

  1. Create more ease.
  2. Make time to find my happy.

FULLfilling . . .

It may not be easy and it may come with its share of hard work, but so worth it! Doing what is best for you and what serves your needs. Communicating, interacting, connecting, and engaging your mind, heart and whole being in pretty much everything you do. Be true to who you are and trust what you know to be true!

When your heart, mind and being are in tune it creates the space you need to go after what you need! The dreams turn into goals. The coming from love versus fear in following your heart’s desires. The believing and trusting that you are right where you need to be! 

To just focus on one thing at a time or even just doing nothing at all! To be mindful as well as in the present moment. To bring about awareness, especially of self. Everything happens in due time and being patient and trusting the process is key!

Do You Have a Word for 2018? What Are You Doing for YOU? Love to Hear, Please Share!

 


A Heart to Heart

Get Out Of My Head

Do you get stuck in your head? Thinking, processing, thinking some more . . .

I do! I tend to get stuck in my head every once in a while. When I do I find whatever I am doing less enjoyable!

Sync & Synergy

How do you sync your mind and heart to create synergy? 

Thinking with your mind while leading with your heart. To lead more with your heart instead of being in your head.


Heart to Heart

I find that it comes more natural when I believe and trust in myself! Tuning into the intuition and tapping into those gut instincts. Especially when something is new that you have never done before.

Think about how you listen to your body! Valuing and believing in yourself. Trusting your mind, heart and gut, especially your instincts. Being true to who you are!

Balancing Act

How do you find that balance? 

For me it comes down to comfort along with confidence! I have to find comfort in what I do. To feel more grounded to center and create calm in my whole being. I have to find that balance and alignment to boost my confidence. To be more aware and mindful.

Really think about relaxing and resting more! Connect with your inner being as well as your breathe throughout the day. What do you need to let be or even let go of to relax more or at least connect more to your breathing? It is okay to do nothing too – take a much deserved break, a cat nap, a good solid 8 hours of rest, etc. Your being needs R&R on a daily basis with all that doing and going!


Balancing . . . Bridging . . .

Checking In

Make the time to do a self check! What is working and what is not. What do you have control over to change. It creates the space you need to stay right where you are at or how to move forward!

What is your whole being really telling you?


Checking In . . .

Presence

How do you create presence?

  • How you conduct and carry yourself.
  • How you physically show up in your world.
  • How you share you with yourself and others.

Think about your head/body positioning too! Are you looking straight ahead or down? When you are head up and looking forward you are more aware as well as confident! Remember to engage your heart too.


Hello There!

Connection

What is happening to you as well as what is going on around you?

  • That connection to your energies.
  • That connection to your power for strength.
  • That connection to control for empowerment.

Think about how you connect through interaction and engagement! Changing and transitioning as well as growing and transforming. Taking the time to tune into your emotions, feelings and thoughts. All and whole being – mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically!

4 Buckets

When It Comes To

FULLfiling Our Whole, Well Beings

I recently attended a class on managing stress. There were some really profound aha! moments for me!

#1 – There are essentially four buckets to FULLfil.

  • Physical
  • Mental
  • Emotional (including Social)
  • Spiritual

#2 – Exercising is more than the physical.

Exercise is physical well being as well as mental health and wellness! It is good to engage both in the activities. Remember fun and not chore. Play, laugh, get curious, explore . . .

Really think about what gives you joy, pleasure and overall happiness! It is motivating and energizing. It can be an attitude and mood changer. It is a confidence booster and gives you a sense of your overall strength aka empowerment!

#3 – Thinking about social being part of not only the emotional, but the physical, mental and spiritual.

I like being solo; however, grabbing a friend or being in a group can add a social aspect and a spirit of fun! It makes you accountable. It makes you a little more willing to try new things. It can be connecting if not at times bonding. It is a way to communicate, interact and engage too! 

I also enjoy getting outside to escape into the Great Outdoors! The fresh air and natural light. The becoming of one with the natural and nature is calming and grounding. The engagement of all your senses!

It all correlates and connects, right! Communicating and engaging. Interacting and connecting. Your whole, well being!


My Top 7 2017 Reflections

Life Lessons and Experiences

Have your reflected on your journeys in 2017?

The life lessons and the experiences.

What did you learn? What did you experience?

The explorations and adventures. The people you met. The food and drink. The travels. The experiences and memories you made.

#1 – Be Kind

Think about a mirror and how you share yourself with others! Kindness and thankfulness. Appreciation and respect. Gratitude and celebration. Your actions matter in how you treat yourself as well as others! 

Really defining what truly matters! The gifts and talents. The possibilities and opportunities.

My Take Away: Patience. 

#2 – Being True to Who You Are – Your True Essence

Do what is best for you and what serves your needs too! Build up your self confidence and self independence. Communicate and connect with your inner being. Engage your inner voice and interact with your heart, mind and whole being. Be true to who you are and trust what you know to be true!

When your heart, mind and being are in tune it creates the space you need to go after what you need! The dreams turn into goals. The coming from love versus fear in following your heart’s desires! The listening to communicate, interact, engage, and connect. The believing and trusting that you are right where you need to be! 

My Take Away: Trust the Process!

#3 – Magic is to Be Believed

Magic is what you make it! What do you believe? It really makes you pause to reflect on what truly matters! 

  • Hopes and wishes.
  • Dreams and desires.
  • Adventures and creativeness.
  • Surprises and celebrations.
  • Silliness and fun.

My Take Away: Live as only YOU can!

#4 – Wholeness and Wellness of Your Being

Instead of thinking how your being and body is not, really think what it does do for you! Loving you, your body and your whole, well being. It may not be easy and it may come with its share of hard work, but you are so worth it! Kindness and acceptance. Appreciation and gratitude. Be thankful, be proud and be strong!

My Take Away: Love of Self!

#5 – Sharing You

There is a way to share yourself with others in being real with who you are! You can be personal without being TMI. It can be relatable and truth telling. It can be empowering, especially in how you treat yourself! 

My Take Away – Simple – Share You and Your Life With You as well as Others, especially Your Greatest Someones!

#6 – Presence

Think about doing just one thing at a time or even just doing nothing! Be mindful and in the present moment. Bring about awareness, especially of self. Ask yourself, “What can be?” and “What can go?”.

  • It is okay to not know what is next and soak in the now.
  • It is okay to lock on to what you need and go for it.
  • It is okay to value yourself by honoring who you are and what you need.
  • It is okay to be open to learn, grow and experience. Get curious to explore and adventure.
  • It is okay to not be and do all. Make the time for yourself, stop rushing and trust the timing.

My Take Away: Be PRESENT – everything happens in due time! In your life as well as the lives of others, especially your greatest someones.

#7 – LESS is More

Life is a puzzle! However, you are not handed a box with all the pieces. You have to journey to add the pieces as you go along! The seeing of the bigger picture to the details and everything in between.

What are your blessings? What are you grateful for? What does abundance truly mean to you? Sharing creates experience and expansion upon abundance!

My Take Away: Simple – Less is MORE!

Here’s To Whatever Makes Your Whole Being CRAVE . . . Love to Hear, Please Share Your Thoughts!

 


Manifest Discovery

Of Your Self

Think about how you bare your soul and essence of your whole being to yourself!

From exploring the world through your child eyes to figuring out where you fit in as a teenager to discovering who you are in your 20’s.

Are you in a discovery phase? Who Am I? How Do I Tick? Have you started on your journey of self?

Where do you see yourself in this big world!

Saying Yes! To Love

Remember to take 5 minutes to 30 minutes to an hour and just be, especially with yourself! Self love and self care and compassion. Communicating and interacting. Engaging and connecting. Healthiness and happiness. 

  • Do a self check to determine your needs. Are your needs connecting to your “whys”?
  • Do make time for yourself and your whole, well being. What do you want to do?
  • Do more of what you love to do.
  • Do get curious to explore and adventure. Add in some play time.
  • Do have fun learning by trying new things.

Find what makes you joyful, gives you pleasure and makes you the happiest! 

Saying Yes! To Nurturing & Nourishing

How do you nurture and nourish your whole being?

  • Relaxing and resting.
  • Being present and mindful.
  • Finding your form of meditation.

Being present and sharing that presence of self can be powerful and intense to yourself as well as others!  You are connecting at a deeper level. It is refreshing and re-energizing. It is freeing and liberating!

Saying Yes! To Who You Are

How do you do for your whole, well being?

  • Building a solid foundation to live from.
  • Developing your coping toolkit. To heal, release and let go of what is not in your best interest.
  • Creating the space and boundaries that you need. Mentally and emotionally as well as physically and spiritually.
  • Being yourself and true to who you are. To really be your own person and stand on your own.
  • Tuning into your beliefs and what you value. To experience growth to transform.
  • Rooting yourself through your beliefs and to trust in yourself.

What truly matters the most to you! You can be authentic and show vulnerability and have humility. That is the essence of being human! 

Say Yes! To Community

Have you found your small tribe? Where you can be you?

  • To inspire and motivate.
  • To communicate and connect.
  • To guide and support.

Inspire and move yourself and others by what you are doing! You and your stories. Your creations and experiences. Your passions and loves. Your talents and gifts. 

  • To share learning lessons, experiences and life in general.
  • To cope and heal.

To shift and change by learning and developing! Gaining those life experiences and make lasting memories. To transition and transform through experiencing growth!

Say Yes! To Intuition

How do you tune and tap into your intuitive self?

  • Finding your voice to express yourself.
  • Accepting who you are.
  • Embracing your talents and gifts.
  • Listening to yourself as well as giving that gift of listening to others.
  • Trusting your gut.
  • Coming from a place of love by following your heart.
  • Letting your inner child out to explore and play.

Do you love you for you! What drives you. What do you want to give your energy to. What part of you needs you to pay attention and listen to it, especially what it needs and its “whys”!

The Greatest Gift You Can Give Yourself is the Discovery of Who You Are. Love to Hear Your Thoughts, Please Share.


Being Your BFF

Your Journey of Self

Your journey of self is your very own personal story of creation! Who you are and what you create. How you journey and what you experience. To love you for you and to be your own BFF through thick and thin and everything in between!

  • Finding your self and discovering who you are.
  • Discovering the love, care and compassion that you have for yourself and your whole, well being.
  • Owning your worth by honoring and valuing yourself.
  • Staying true to who you are by believing and trusting in yourself.
  • Tuning and tapping into your inner self, especially your emotions, feelings and thoughts.

We can be our worst critic if not enemy at times. How do you protect yourself from doing that to yourself? Really think about how you can down low your inner critic to empower your inner voice! You can receive clarity and validity through your inner voice, especially to express yourself in what you need and why.

  • Knowing it is okay to have doubts and fears, especially in going after what you need, want, crave, desire, etc.
  • Practicing to progress, develop and experience growth.
  • Finding you and who you are through the practicing and experiencing.
  • Coming from a place of love in following your heart in what you are passionate about and what you love to do.

Then there are other times where we have people being hurtful to us. How do you tune into you and tap into your needs in those situations? How you value yourself helps you and others treat you how you want to be treated. It truly comes from within you!

Ask yourself . . .

  • What is true and what is not? Reality versus perception.
  • What do I have control over and what can I not control?
  • What am I going to respond/react to and what am I not going to respond/react to?
  • What are my choices?

There is a fine line between addressing and being aware of what is hurting you instead of finding fault and criticizing yourself. Really get to the heart of the “whats” by asking those “whys” in what you truly need. 

Probably the hardest part is understanding your emotions, feelings and thoughts. There usually is a reason behind our emotions and you have to take the time to ask why. It matters to address it head on in order to move on. Especially in being able to release and let go. Especially to be open to experiences. Especially to do what works best and serves you in your personal growth and journey of self. Your whole being and your energy will thank you for that!

Your happiness and healthiness matters! To become a better version of yourself. To find your inner voice in being able to communicate and connect with yourself on a deeper level. To listening to your whole being from the inside out!
