Permission- Self and Soul Care Saturday

Hey, Amazing Souls!

So many of us are living lives that are fulfilling what we think is expected of us. Sometimes it’s what we were told, what we

Give yourself permission to…

Stop

Start

To scan over a book and skip through bits and considered it read (unless your trying to do a book report :D)

To unplug

To binge watch

To try out that “woo woo” practice

To stick to what works and what feels really good

To ask for what you really want or need (this goes for asking yourself too)

To have a spontaneous dance party (of 1 or more)

To use the good stuff (ingredients, dishes, makeup, clothes, ideas) and stop trying to save it for….

To stop reading those personal growth books (blogs, articles etc)

To keep on reading those personal growth books (blogs, articles etc)  because you truly love it!

To add flowers and plants to your place even if you don’t have a green thumb and they may not thrive and that’s ok… enjoy it while it’s there!

To do this holiday season in a way that feels right to you, even if it’s not what your tradition has been or what’s expected of you.

You have permission to… (fill in with whatever is tugging at you!)

5 Inspiring Videos – Friday 5

Hey Beautiful Souls!

I watch something on YouTube at least 3 days a week there is so much inspiration to be had there (and it can be a vortex time sucker, so beware!) Here are some videos I have found inspiring lately.

  1. I just love this song (all musical) and the video is pretty cool too! There just something about it I felt inspired by!
  2. This video was really inspiring and thought-provoking 
  3. How to stop screwing yourself over
  4. On grief and the passage of time 
  5. I really want to try this paint pour canvas! 

Bloom at your own pace- Thursday Thoughts

Hey Beautiful Souls,

I have found myself many times in my life feeling like I was behind on well, life! I see so many other inspiring souls just blossoming in their businesses and life (or at least it appears that way to me) I start to get caught up in the maybe I should, I wish I could, I should have…

Here are some truths to remember during these times…

  1. Social Media and certain interactions often are curated to highlight what’s going good, right, rocking etc. So the picture we are getting is not the entire one (and that’s totally ok as long as we can remember this!)
  2. We all have very different life circumstances from living situations to money to health to everything else in between and expanding from that. Our situations are very different in many ways, so comparing your beginning with someone else’s middle (so to speak) is not even an accurate comparison, to begin with!
  3. We each bloom at our own pace. It’s perfectly ok if that dream you have takes you longer to unfold or even to discover what that dream is than it took or is taking someone else. You are unique, your truth is unfolding in the time that is right for YOU and not according to the shoulds and did it’s of someone else.

Sometimes- Thursday Thoughts

Hey Inspiring Souls!

Sometimes what feels safe (familiar) is not the path that is leading us towards, into the deeper truth that we seek. (in fact it could be said that it is never the path that is leading us where we seek to be)

Sometimes what feels right, even peaceful is really painful and difficult.

Sometimes your Soul needs you to show up ready or not.

Sometimes the support you need the most is your own.

Sometimes what we resist the most is what we seek/need/crave the most.

Sometimes we need to start from where we are.

Sometimes we need a fresh start.

Sometimes we need to just be.

Sometimes we need to stop thinking and take action and trust.

Can I… Journal Prompt

 

Hey Beautiful Souls!

This week’s journal prompt is one that we may need to ask ourselves over and over as we venture out of (or on the perimeter of) our comfort zone.

Can I, Am I willing to show up despite the fear?

Sometimes the answer will be a shaky but for sure yes… other times it may be a not this time or not yet . This could apply in so many areas for our lives from creativity to a move or career change, starting our own business, going back to school or simply speaking up about our beliefs or needs.

What if.. Soul Notes

20140801-073236.jpg

 

What If..

Hey Inspiring Souls

These are what if’s I have been asking myself lately (and possibly avoiding the responses in some cases!) They are simple yet really powerful

So often we are guided by our what if’s but the dis-empowering what if’s.. What if this goes wrong, what if I can’t. I am not saying we should not ask these what if’s. Honestly though, how often do you create space for yourself to work through and past these? If your anything like me than you probably all too often allow those what if’s to become why bothers or never minds!

What if you dressed to really express

What if you responded to what life is asking of you instead of reacting to the circumstances

What if you started anyways

What if you listened a bit deeper

What if you forgave

What if you ate to truly nourish your body

What if you said no to something good so you could say a Soul yes to something better?

What if you signed up for that class, group, volunteer position whatever has been tugging at you to see, hear and explore it.

What if you stopped waiting until..

What if you showed up

What if you stepped back

What if I trusted myself a bit deeper

What if it did work?

What if you celebrated showing up, and taking those tiny steps instead of beating yourself up for not taking huge leaps.

What if?

What are your what if’s?
