Put it ALL in perspective.

The hardest moments of your life will be when you’re transitioning from one version of yourself to another.

The pressure of personal and professional advancement will get heavier. It’ll be as if a large piece of cement has been laid on your chest and as time passes, it gets heavier and heavier. As this is happening, your tolerance for certain things, things that may not have bothered you before, will become unbearable. You’re losing oxygen and now you’re seconds away from panicking. To reduce the pressure you have to either decrease your altitude immediately or ride it out until you get to your destination.

Ride it out.

With altitude, some people and things are just going to flat-out die: Relationships, friendships, habits, old desires etc.

As things begin to fall off, proceed with your pursuit and continue to go higher. The weight that needs to fall off, will. Don’t be afraid of a little chaos. Let the chaos relieve the pressure as you go higher.

When you’re walking in a life of vision and purpose, you have to come to the realization that not everyone is going to be down with what you’re doing, and you just have to be okay with that.

It’s a long narrow and winding road for sure. But, I guarantee you it’s a road worth taking.

Put what you want into perspective.

Go all in for what you know to be true and allow yourself to be everything good, bad, and/or ugly when necessary. All of it contributes to the making of your journey.

This is life. Pressure and all.

Life isn’t happening to you, but for you.

The little girl inside me is dancing!

Hear me.
 
I just received some crazy confirmations about things I’ve never quite expressed to anyone in detail. Things that are tied to my heart like my unborn children.
 
Listen…
 
Whatever you believe in your heart to be true about the direction of your life, TRUST IT.
 
Never allow anything external (family, friends, life events and/or circumstances) to change the perspective on what you believe is MOST true for you.
 
Whether it’s understood by others or not, trust!
 
YOU know the desires of your heart. YOU know the deepest expression of what makes your heart sing. You know!
 
Never let anyone deny you of that truth.
 
As cliché as it sounds, follow your heart. Follow it! It’ll be and has been your saving grace.
 
Be blinded by the standards and terms of the outside and hold onto what you know is for you.
 
Stay tuned.
P.S. I just had a birthday! Happy birthday to all of my Libras and to those who share a birthday on the 2nd of October with me.
Peace x blessings!

If you want it, go get it!

Since the summer I’ve been advised by business owners and entrepreneurs to compromise what I’m doing to better fit into a specific market, bettering my chances of success in my local area. For about 20 minutes it made sense. Well, of course it did. But, on the ride home, the risky and highly imaginative side of me kicked that “common sense” out the window with NO WARNING!

The voice eloquently said, “This is one SMALL area in the entire universe. If what you’re doing isn’t attractive here, maybe it’s not you but them. Your dreams are way bigger than this small town. If you minimize now, how do you expect to grow and compete in a bigger market? It’s not worth it. The money, the name recognition, nor the experience. It’s worth it.”

Annnnnd that was all she wrote!

You can, by any means, have and live the life you want to live. No matter where you are, who you’re with, or who decides to say “Yes, you can”, or “No, you can’t”.

If you’re willing to work hard to achieve what you want, you can absolutely obtain it!

If you want the big house and the fancy cars, GO GET IT! Don’t let anyone make you feel bad for wanting those things. You want what you want and there’s no better explanation than that.

“Nothing happens a first. It’s a process of the time, the effort, and the energy put into whatever you want and/or desire.”-Oprah

There are too many people in the world out there telling others that they shouldn’t want this or that.

Go after the big things in life. If and when you get those things and you no longer find a need for them, go get something else. That’s what life is about. It’s a consistent shift of wanting and no longer wanting. Losing and retrieving. Letting go and starting over.

Explore. Learn. Transform.

One may see that kind of life as one that is stable and unsure. But the reality is, a life of trial and error is one of assurance because of  the wisdom, knowledge, and expedience gained from the journey thus far.

There’s something Oprah said in one of her opening episodes of her  Master class series. She said, “You can’t allow the voices of the world to drown out the voice of that which you know is God.”

If you know what you are born to do, do it! Whether it’s attractive to others or not. Find a way to allow the truth of yourself to express itself.

Ultimately we know in our gut where we belong and where don’t belong. And what I know for sure is that staying where you don’t belong is detriment to who you are.

Don’t sell yourself short. Hold on to your belief of what you expect for yourself and don’t let it be compromised in any way.

If you want it, go get it!

What you put on your social site(s) MATTER!

People make the assumption that just because you do not jump up and down, yell and scream, and plaster your page about issues personally related to you, that you don’t care about the current issues in this country or elsewhere. Whether global or domestic, if you didn’t post it, you don’t care. No. Been there, done that. 

In this day and age, and in the rise and reign of social media, I guess that’s fair, but let me explain.

What I know now, and what I have learned, is that when you’re posting and sharing your opinion on every issue there is out there, you’re adopting the energy those issues carry. Issues that are NOT positive and translate a LOW vibrational frequency. Yes, bad things happen in the world, but I’m not going to give my attention to it.

It’s why I’ve chosen to stay away from the news and television altogether. It’s why I’ve chosen to listen to certain types of music. It’s why I stay away from certain types of people – physically or virtually. Nothing personal. But, I understand how life and what becomes of it, is a result of what you feed it. Focus on.

I’ve made a conscious decision to choose positivity, imagination, creativity, and truth. The perfect plane of the ying and yang. As we all know, the truth can be harsh at times.

Where’s the lesson in all of this?

The lesson is to pay attention to the things you engage. Everything you entertain, influences you (see the previous blog post). If your goal and mission in life is not to become an activist/politician, then let the experts handle it. Solely voice your opinion when necessary. Show your support, but again, let the experts handle it. Just remember, you would never run into a burning building before a trained and professional firefighter. Stay in your lane.

If you want a happy life, choose to focus on happy things. Recognize that there’s negativity out there, just don’t focus or dwell on it. Therefore, I’m not saying ignore it altogether, but what I am saying is, CHOOSE to see the positive in all things, and all people. Keyword, CHOOSE.

Be of good cheer, be of good courage, and never hope unless you absolutely have to. Hoping is for those that are inclined to beg, and by the terms of your birthright, you don’t have too.
