5 ways to empower yourself this weekend

 

Hey Inspiring Soul!

This weekend give yourself the gift of creating a little bit of space to dive into at least one of the below prompts to empower yourself.. this weekend!

  1. Ask for what you need (if this feels to tender to ask of someone else right now, then ask yourself for what you need.) There is more power in this seemingly simple question.
  2. Learn something new, a word, a craft, a meal, a technique, a filter, something about your body, a medication you take or a loved one takes..  learning is empowering.
  3. Curate even a tiny space for yourself. Put a candle, photo, your journal, an image or words you love, a plant.. it’s your space curate one that feels good to you!
  4. Say no to something that just doesn’t align with you and who you are unfolding into. It can be books, clothing, obligation, invitation etc..
  5. Choose a project of some kind to “chip away” at. That book you’ve been wanting to read, that class you signed up for but haven’t started, that craft project you have had the supplies for but are afraid to start, the project you have just about done but seem to be in stuck mode, titling that book you want to start writing..

6 questions to ask yourself now- Intentional Living

Hey Lovely Souls,
There is a lot of hype about there is only x more days until 2020… While that is shocking and a bit horrifying, I don’t want to get too caught up in that energy. It feels almost a panicky for some!
What I would love to do is create some posts and prompts that will support you where you are now.
Let’s start with these 6 questions, don’t overthink them (I know easier said than done!) Just be open to what comes up!
1) What do I need to let go of from this  year so far? Goals, expectations, project, anger,  stuff?
2) What do I want to savor the rest of this year? The holidays, time with loved ones, the flavors?
3) How do I want to feel the rest of this year?
4) What can I start or ask for today, this week in order to support myself in that feeling?
5) What’s something that I put off this year that I could still accomplish, create or ask for that might help support who I am unfolding into next year?
6) Where have I really showed up, rocked it and aligned this year?

Self & Soul Care Saturday

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.

Thursday Thoughts

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.
