Time and Talent

If you are going to do something do it right and do it well through effort, being mindful and diligent. Make it worth your time and honor your talent.

Sometimes….

Our hardest prayers are the most important that guide our most pivotal decisions into light! Dig into your darkest moments to seek and surrender to your brightest light. Beauty comes from our darkest moments, seeing it is hard, but look into the distance and you’ll see shimmers of the light. JRS ❤

Picture perfect mindset!

If you are like me you’ve had enough of the cold, snowy, icy winter weather! Enough! Last week during a Nor’Easter, I captured this picture and thought to myself, how beautiful, but then I thought ugh, it’s going to get worse and driving/walking will be a nightmare and quickly the beauty faded. Real quick! Why? A second ago, I thought this image was breathtaking, just like that, gone and forgotten, replaced with my own negativity. Today, as I was driving home in the rain, again, ugh, this weather! I felt annoyed for a few hours, then, I was annoyed with myself! Did that ever happen to you? I think I’ve written about this before, where I get on my own nerves and I neeed to tell myself to shut up and force myself back in the light. Sometimes saying it helps, enough Jennifer, you are so annoying with these comments. Shut it! Weather, really, you are letting that get you down! You know what, the weather can be a visual mindset staring at you or maybe even a mindset test, do you see the beauty? Can you feel the beauty? Maybe you are not a winter person, I get it. You know what you are, a person who can keep their mindset positive! What are you looking forward to? Could it be worse? What are you grateful for? Is it time to recharge? It’s never as bad as you think! God’s plan is never perfect, but it’s always on time. Celebrate what you’ve done and where you are going! There is beauty, look for it and when you are not seeing it, step back and get out of your own way!

Girl, get up and show up!

I recently have started on a journey of waking up earlier than I need too, which I owe credit to feeling more energized due to eating healthier  minus the seasonal sinus infection that crept its way in.  Feeling energized, waking up earlier, being more focused has led me back to exercising which leads me to feeling overall healthier. Who cares right, good for you, I know, my point is I wasn’t being true to myself, I was a phony. Rushing around, dragging my butt into a gym, half heartedly doing the exercise wasn’t purposeful for me.  I had enough of feeling  like a phony.  Purposeful actions lead to peace and meaningful moments which creates respectful boundaries for ourselves.  I am in the moment which leads to greater moments ahead because when I allow myself to focus and take notice it allows me to appreciate when the right people and moments show up!

How much longer?

Too many times in the past, I thought how many more minutes, how much time left, how long is it, how many days, if I could just make it through….finally, I realized, it’s about noticing, appreciating; the people, moments that unfold while we are waiting. Take your time getting there, the journey is the best part, be thankful for the highs and lows, the lows when self aware take us higher.
