Let’s jump back in, shall we?

Friends, followers and dedicated readers,

Happy Monday! It’s been awhile since I published a blog post and today, before I continued posting anywhere else, I told myself that I had to come check with my followers here. So, here I Am! ❤

Between having to squeeze content out to finish my book and having to deal with other personal and business related demands, these days I’m looking to only fill my time with things that are nurturing to my spiritual well-being. As a creative, it can get extremely exhausting when you’re constantly giving, giving, giving. When I pour out, I must engage in things and with people who pour back into me.

Here’s what I’ve noticed lately. Although I’m wedged and associated with many businesses and business related organizations and institutions, I really don’t care about any of it. That’s the thought that I had the other day. lol I care because I have something to give, but I’d rather be talking about something else. Something like sharing the techniques on how someone can become who they need to be to access the resources they desire. I’d rather discuss that instead of leading people to scour the earth for strategies on obtaining success (that is illusionary, by the way) by increasing their bank account. I’m not saying I have all the answers. But what I do know is, by applying practical skills and strategies to navigate through the everyday challenges in your life, you will undoubtably reach a personal success that will increase everything in your life, not just your wallet.

I think we make life harder than it actually is by believing that we need something outside of ourselves. That we are lacking something and if we get more money, a better car, or somehow bump into our soul mate while on the way to the grocery store, we’d finally be happy. That couldn’t be far more from the truth.

“There is no need to search; achievement leads to nowhere. It makes no difference at all, so just be happy now! Love is the only reality of the world, because it is all One, you see. And the only laws are paradox, humor and change. There is no problem, never was, and never will be. Release your struggle, let go of your mind, throw away your concerns, and relax into the world. No need to resist life, just do your best. Open your eyes and see that you are far more than you imagine. You are the world, you are the universe; you are yourself and everyone else, too! It’s all the marvelous Play of God. Wake up, regain your humor. Don’t worry, just be happy. You are already free!”
Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives

Xoxo,

Happy Spring.

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.

Life is a Highway

Parallel universes always leave me stunned. It really exemplifies that in light of your similarities with others, believed as is, to think and act as the same, the realities are vastly different.
It’s why I can never be held to the threshold or the standard. I don’t fit. I like to think that I create my own. I hold my own pen to draw what is and what will be. Adding to that, my view on all if not most things, are in ONE–the whole.
Because I don’t believe anyone to be separate from myself or each other.
Separatism comes in many forms. Fighting to gain unification for one piece is a losing battle you’ll never win. Therefore you’re not solving the problem as you may think, you’re apart of it.
Think about it. Realities, perceptions, views. They’re like a million highways going in their respective directions. Universes and realities that all piles onto ONE.
I guess it’s true what they say, “Life is a Highway.”

“Chaos theory is not really chaotic at all, but perfectly controlled.”-Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Navigate Your Journey Using Passion

“Life has three rules: Paradox, Humor, and Change.

– Paradox: Life is a mystery; don’t waste your time trying to figure it out.

– Humor: Keep a sense of humor, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure

– Change: Know that nothing ever stays the same.” 
― Dan MillmanWay of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives

There’s a new paradigm shift taking place as we speak. Each of us will be ending or soon to be beginning something. The lesson to be learned, is to let go of attachments. Appreciate the time for what it was and move on. The past moment has passed. Enter the newest moment with a fresh and open mind to experience a new realm of reality. In the words of Dr. Brian Weiss, “The end after all, is only the beginning.” Nothing ever ends. We or it, simply continue. #TurningOfTheSeasons Do not get stuck.

Your artistic interpretation is your passion. It’s something that everyone has, and not everyone is going to get. Passion is by far, is the ticket to getting and moving you up to the next level. For when one finds passion in what their doing, art and passion, will soon meet or find your purpose. Sometimes we pack our plate so heavy that we cloud our senses and are unable to listen to our intuition. As far as to the point where we distract ourselves. Slow down. Give yourself some time and relax. Your intuition is your compass. Stop shaking it and be still. Make yourself a priority. #FollowYourBliss

Remember: “You cannot hear your inner voice, nor detect your true feelings, if too much traffic is going on up top.” #BeStill

Revitalize your passion.

Find your passion, live your purpose.
