Soul Prompt – Practice Trust

Hey Beautiful Soul,

Where in your life today, can you practice trust?

Do you treat yourself like someone you trust? Do you trust in something bigger than you? Do you have another person or people that you trust? Do you trust your body to communicate with you what it needs? Do you trust your desires or ideas, your decisions?

Choose one thing, do your best to practice trust within that.

Maybe for you right now, it’s practicing trust in your breath and just being present to whatever is right now.

My 2018 Vision board

Hey Beautiful Souls,

I wanted to share my vision board for this year with you. I did it differently this for several reasons. I created it with an image to represent my core desired feelings and my word of the year.

Core desired feelings:

Support

Inspiration

Connection

Alignment

Creativity

Devotion (word of the year)

This one happens to be created on a file folder. Do you create a vision board or the like for the new year?

Grab some images, words that represent what you desire, choose a surface and glue them down! If you are not feeling the idea of a vision board (feels pressure  or woo to you, then create an inspiration board)

Thoughts on the rest of this year… and embracing what you need

Hey Beautiful Souls,

For some, this time of year might feel magical, full of hope and reflection. For others, for whatever reason (loss of a loved one, finance issues, family stress etc…) this might not feel like anything but something else you have to get through…

So here’s what I think many of us need… and truly we can only get it from ourselves but sometimes having others remind us that it’s not just you, you are not alone and that what you are feeling is legit and you are worthy no matter what, well sometimes that’s what we need a permission of sorts.

Do the holidays your way as much as you can, just because you have always done something a certain way doesn’t mean that it feels right for you and yours this year. Honor what you most need and leave the rest as much as you can.

I have been used to doing all sorts of reflection at the end of the year… I am not doing that this year. I will stick with a few traditions/prompts and leave the rest until next year, or the year after that or maybe never… I will decide as I come to it. I am going to say it again… Do what feels right for YOU and when appropriate you and yours. For this year, I am only writing a letter to the year, instead of doing the type of vision board I have done in the past I am creating an inspiration/vision board that supports my core desired feelings (something similar that I have done for years and years but supported and inspired more deeply by Danielle LaPorte’s process)

I will be continuing to create space, choose a word (or words) to support me in the year to come, I will choose just a few focuses on what I really want to create, instead of a bunch of ones to fill up space, I will likely continue to collect more journals, books and art supplies that I will use in that year, I will continue to allow space for the tenderness of grief and the tenderness of allowing my truth to unfold, I will work on connecting to the small bits of beauty and practices that support me and I will also likely let overwhelm, uknowns and other stuff get me down for a while, then I will get back up. I will continue to ponder how to live the lessons and hopefully, in that pondering, I will be living some of those lessons full out… I will give myself grace and I will likely be too hard on myself and overthink sometimes too… I will remind myself that I am held, guided and supported even if doesn’t look the way I thought it would.

 

So, trust yourself, forgive yourself, show up for yourself and allow what it is you need to guide you right now. And give yourself permission to fully embrace your contradictions.

Super inspiring quotes-Friday 5

Hey Beautiful Souls!

I love quotes, they have the power to inspire action, contemplation, laughter, and tears. This week’s Friday 5 I wanted to share 5 awesome quotes with you.

You can copy and paste and print it out, put it on your inspo board, stick it in your journal (or write it in there) use it as a prompt or just soak in the goodness 😀

  1. “Stop treating yourself as an afterthought. Eat delicious food, walk in the sunshine, jump in the ocean. Say the truth you are carrying in your heart like a hidden treasure. Be silly, be kind, be weird. There is no time for anything else.” – Richard Gere
  2. Don’t surrender all your joy for an idea you used to have about yourself that isn’t true anymore. -Cheryl Strayed
  3. ““Why are you knocking on every other door? Go knock at the door of your own heart.” – Rumi”
  4. You tell the tale of your life by the stories you repeat in your days. -Mary Anne Radmacher
  5. “Between whatever happens to me and my response to it is a space.In that space is my freedom and power to choose my response. And in response lay my growth and happiness.”~Stephen Covey

Have you run across an inspiring quote lately, share it with me!!

Your worth- Tuesday Truths

Hey Beautiful Souls,

Your worth is not determined by how much you get done, how much money you make, what kind of car you drive… You are worthy as you are right here and right now.

You are enough, have done enough.

Free things you can do today to improve your days…Friday 5

Hey Lovely Souls…

This week I wanted to share 5 Free things you can do today to improve your days…

1)      Meditate (there are a ton of free meditations out there, I happen to really love an app called insight timer it has hundreds of free meditations. YouTube is another great tool) Start with 1-5 minutes.

2)      Listen to an inspiring Podcast. (or song or audiobook) You can multitask while doing this.. on your commute, going for a walk, straightening up your space, even oftentimes at work!

3)      Choose a book or magazine that you want to dig into, not one you should (and shoulds come in all different sizes…) but one that you really want to) Set aside 10-20  minutes a day to read some of it.

4)      Have a little plan.  I am not suggesting that you plan every hour. What I am encouraging, however, is that you use a planner or digital system to schedule a few things that need to be done and that matter to you.  I love having a paper and pen planner. I start out planning my week. If that’s not your thing then start with planning /setting intentions and your most important tasks for that day. It helps you feel like you do have a say in how your days will unfold. But I will suggest being open about shifts in your plan sometimes…

5)      Ask yourself, what do I most need today? And try and give that to yourself. I feel like oftentimes it’s simple things like a deep breath, a nourishing meal, laughter or even just a few minutes of stillness.
