Be careful what type of energy you put out because often times that’s what you’ll get in return. You have to protect your energy and value its sacredness. Know that not everyone deserves it, which is why it’s important to surround yourself with positive uplifting people. Don’t feed into the negativity because before you know it you’ll be the one putting it out there. Be that person who naturally draws in the crowd, that people want to be around and whose light is contagious. I’m working on that myself. It takes me a min to warm up as I’m a natural observer, so I’m cautious about those I let in. Let your light and energy radiate, spread good vibes, and uplift someone just because. When you do good it comes back to you in unexpected ways.

I like prepped meals and i cannot lie (best sir mix a lot voice 🎶)
:
Man we’ve had such a relaxing Sunday. Fuzzy socks, Christmas movies, and warm blankets make for little motivation, but i know my habits if I’m not prepared for the week.
:
{Convenience} gets the best of me. So i got my booty off the couch and made my own “fast food” for the week.
:
I don’t over complicate! Breakfast smoothie on the go with frozen fruit, fresh veggies and humus or avocado for snacks, and leftover soup or a throw together salad with what’s left in the fridge👌🏽
:
This picture really makes me look like i had a productive Sunday😂...it’s so deceiving.

What are you willing to sacrifice to enjoy your life? Are you willing to let go of conformity? Are you ready to lose a lot of people and things? Are you ready to open your mind and see things from a different point of view? I’ve lost a lot, but I gained so much more. It took losing what I thought was valuable, for me to realize that the true value was within me. I’m learning more and more in order for me to succeed and be the best version of myself, I have to be willing to give up things, leave my comfort zone, take a risk and learn along the way. I have to be smart about my choices because they affect others not just myself. I’m rebuilding myself day by day and that in itself takes sacrifice.

Give yourself time to heal. Heal from the brokenness. Heal from the emptiness. Heal from being lonely. Heal to find your self worth. Heal to know that you are greater than your circumstance. Heal to know you are loved. Heal so you can shine your light. Heal to regain confidence. Heal to take risks. Heal to leave it in the past. Heal to find understanding. Heal to reclaim your peace.

I cannot count the number of times I’ve been knocked down. The number of times I’ve failed and felt like I couldn’t go on. Each day I get stronger. I work on improving my emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual state daily. I work hard on myself because if I don’t no one else will. I push forward despite what I’m going through because I have a son who needs me. I keep going because I know that God is not done with me yet. I keep moving because I am destined to do something great. I stand tall because there were days where I was too broken to stand at all. I’m writing all of this because I’m not ashamed of the things I’ve faced in my short period of life. I embrace who I can wholeheartedly and no matter what gets thrown my way, I will persevere.

How often do you take care of yourself? For some it may be a lot for others not so much. You have to always remember to take care of you. Make yourself a priority for once, take a solo vacation. Do things by yourself so you can learn who you are. It doesn’t hurt to be selfish sometimes. In fact I encourage it. This is your time to do the things you want to do, pursue that passion, take that risk, or just simply relax l. Whatever you do in life make sure it’s what you want. Show yourself some TLC.

Have you ever gotten so excited about something then completely doubted yourself and never did it? Were your planning a move then all the naysayers got into your ear and made you change mind? Or instead of going for that amazing opportunity you started feeling like you weren’t the best candidate so you found a way to sabotage it. I’ve had people doubt me about so many things. They didn’t believe in my ability to do certain things, to branch out on my own because leaving them meant they no longer had control. Sure, there are plenty times when I doubted myself. Leaving a toxic relationship was hard, pulling myself together after losing multiple children harder, doubting my ability to be a great mother after the fact the hardest. There are plenty of times where I have to give myself pep talks and know that I’m doing the best with what I have thus far. Your biggest enemy is your mind and if you let doubt, negative people, and don’t have confidence in yourself, then you’re not going to make it to where you want to be. You have to push all that aside and take that risk. Be willing to spread your wings and see what journey life takes you on.

I used to ask this question a lot especially when I was going through hard times. Why didn’t I feel loved? Why does this keep happening to me? Why am I in my current situation? Why me? Majority of the time you don’t get the answers to the questions asking why. Well at least not at the time you ask. I’ve noticed that there are always great lessons learned out of those why moments. Maybe if we asked the others who, what, when, where, and how questions we’d be able to avoid some of the mess we put ourselves in. Maybe the answer as to why is beyond our current scope, so it cannot be revealed because we aren’t ready to handle it. Maybe questioning why is blocking you from receiving what God has in place for you because instead of doing what he’s called you to do you’re asking why. Why me? Well take a look at the patterns of your life so far. What same things do you keep repeating over and over again? When are you going to change your why me to how can I better myself? Where do I need to go to find tranquility? Who do I need to surround myself with so I can be constantly uplifted and poured into? Keep moving in a positive direction and don’t let why me stop you from pursuing your best life.

This is one of life’s biggest lessons. I know because I had to learn this the hard way. I was so used to having everything and doing it all on my own. I was very prideful and never liked asking for help. It’s still hard for me at times. This year has really taught me the value of being humble. While everything may seem wonderful on the surface it can be taken away in a moments notice. Do yourself a favor and bring it down a few notches. You can be the loudest person in the room without being the loudest person in the room. Show some empathy towards others and realize how blessed you truly are. You never know when life is going to hand you a huge slice of humble pie.

Family is an amazing bond. It’s where you hold your closest memories good and bad. It gives you the beginning foundation of who you are. I am grateful for my family. They have seen me at my worst and at my best. They love me unconditionally regardless of what happens. They’re your biggest supporters even if they don’t always agree with what your doing. Though they may get on your nerves, try to run your life (parentals), and every day it seems like they are on you about something. You have to realize they are coming from a place of love. That they don’t want to see you struggle and 9/10 the things you’re going through they’ve already experienced it. I love my family and while some days it feels like they will never understand me, I wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world.

Do you ever feel like you’re juggling 59 million things at one? That 24 hours isn’t enough time to get everything done in a day? I know I do. You’re a full time worker, full time parent, and some of you are full time students all at the same time. How do you make the school play, finish a ten page paper, and meet the important deadline? A lot of times we don’t and if we do we’re dead tired and not putting in 100%. I have yet to master the art of balance in life. It’s either one or the other. The hardest thing is when you miss the important events of the ones you love. I recently missed one of my son’s school events. He was heartbroken and have yet to let me live it down. I felt awful like went in room and cried awful. However, it’s these things that keep me motivated so I can put myself in a position where I won’t have to choose between work and my son. Let’s face it a lot of us don’t make time for ourselves. We say we’re going to take that vacation or carve out an hour of me time but never do. That’s always been a struggle for me. I get so wrapped up in everything and everyone that I neglect to take care of myself. I just started to make time for myself. A single hour of yoga just to clear my mind, meditate, and put myself in a positive space. Look at your life where do you need to find balance, are there things you need to eliminate so you can have the extra time for yourself or to spend with others? I can only speak for myself but I know there are definitely things I need to re-evaluate so I can live a more balanced life.

Setbacks are just setting you up for something bigger. Some days I’d like to believe that. I’ve had my fair share of experiences that I’ve felt were setbacks in life. Are these things really holding us back or is it because we’ve allowed them to? Sure I never thought that by 30 I’d be a divorced, single mom living at home with my parents while I readjust my life. I’d never thought that I wouldn’t meet half of the ridiculous expectations I’d set for myself. I say expectations because the “goals” I were striving for in life were never the ones I’d set for myself, but things we are expected to do by a certain age. Why do we place these unrealistic expectations on ourselves? Who came up with this idea that you’d have to have everything figured out and going well by the time you’re 30? Then when it rolls around you’re feeling like a failure because the false reality of expectations you set to please others hadn’t happened. I believe that everything happens for a reason and you have to trust the timing of YOUR life. No one else’s because at the end of the day whether you’re meeting everything they expect of you or not, they are going to continue to live their best life regardless. It’s great to set goals and accomplish things in life, just make sure you are living out your own dreams and not falling to others expectations of you. Set yourself up to live your best life on your own terms. #31daysoftruth

How open do you allow yourself to be with others? Do you give them a glimpse of who you are or are you transparent? I can honestly say that I am extremely closed off. I hardly let anyone in, there are things that no one knows not even those closest to me. I’ve always felt to need to cover up and hide who I really am. Always afraid of what others would perceive of me. Could I let them into my brokenness, would they understand or will they judge? Can they handle my anxiety, alcoholism, promiscuity,suicidal thoughts, abuse, insecurities, emotionless, unaffectionate self? My desires, dreams and aspirations that will improve my quality of life? Majority can’t. I’ve seen how the expressions change when I’ve given a glimpse into what I’ve experienced. I’ve seen how people would try to fix the surface, but not willing to go deeper because they are afraid to expose that part of themselves. Why do we hide who we really are? It is in that space of rawness where we hold our greatest breakthrough. Open up and let someone in. You’ll never know how your story can impact their life. #31daysoftruth
