Happiness is a Journey, not a Destination

Today, is a day of deep reflection. I am excited and blessed to be at the point I am in my life but something is yearning for more. When I look at my recent accomplishments, I feel one would chuckle a disbelief as how I could feel this way. Well, let me tell you it not so much acquiring the things that we most desire, but rather once we obtain those things we want it no longer seems as appealing as it did when we didn’t have it.

I don’t expect to have the all the answer at one time, and I am sure I should be enjoying the “freed up” schedule. However, I am not. I am looking to dive right back into the comfortable & familiar, as much as I wanted to stray away from it. So, I ask myself, what am I afraid of? What am I scared of?

I guess, one would think the unknown? But, the unknown looks so adventurous and mysterious why wouldn’t I want this path? Why wouldn’t I want a clear schedule and a do what the f! I want, at any giving time? No textbooks, no nagging, no stress just a careless stress free living for a year or so?

These questions I have often pondered since I knew I was going to have a clear schedule eventually. And as anyone imagine it was filled with beach ,trips and hanging out gazing at the stars.

 A previous professor once said, “that you may feel a sense of emptiness, once you realize that you are no longer striving for purpose, you tend to  have a moment of what now? When you realize that the intended purpose was not the real purpose at all, yet you made it your center of reality. “

So, I say to the unknown or unfamiliar, as much as I want to run back and hide. I want to embrace this new chapter of my life. They say, you cant read the same book expecting a different ending..

Change the Thought & the Feeling Must Go!

Happy Thursday Everyone!

To my northeast people, hope you are enjoying this snow day (if you were lucky!). We are 4 days into 2018! How has your year started out? I must say, that I am looking forward to this new chapter! The Wolf Super Moon, that we recently had came about with a lot of change, inspiration and courage! Hopefully, you were able to set somethings in motion during that time, as it is a great time to start something new (hobby, beginning/ending or change!).

Although, I have set intentions for this coming month. I am excited and patiently waiting for the end of my current chapter. The excitement and anticipation that I have for this coming year has riddled me with anxiety but positively. And we all love positive anxiety!

I believe that the complexity of a thought, can give us either a good or bad outcome. Yet, the simplest thing we must do, is change the feelings that comes with our thoughts. If we have bad thoughts, we create bad intentions and with that we become crippled with bad emotions. I realized this over the last few weeks, I could either be upset or sad about my current situation or I can look at it with a fresh set of eyes and see the positive manifestations that could happen! And those positive manifestations are endless.

When we continue to walk around with bad energy, we see the world as if it is out to get us. When we let the energy flow as it should, we see the world with clarity and joy in all things. We must be able to let go and trust our journey! When we hold on to negativity we become a burden to ourselves and to those around us. And no one wants to be around a negative Nancy!

At the end of day, we must know that 1. everything will be fine and 2. that no one has everything figured out. And if you do, you’ve lost your peace, as you are not letting live and let live happen!

Be free and be focused, laugh when you feel like crying and change your thoughts! Don’t let negative people, things or words change your mood. Accept it, Acknowledge it and Let that shit go! Everyday we are learning or processing something new, why not let that thousand and one thing you learn — is to be positive?

Move forward with confidence and courage in 2018!

“The moment I let go of it was
The moment I got more than I could handle
The moment I jumped off of it was
The moment I touched down”

  1. Make sure you are on time, not just on Mondays but every other day of the week! The most important is Monday, as it is when the emails are usually starting to poor in from those who check there email earlier than 9 AM. And when your there to catch them, you will find it easier to map out your day and with the latter/tea/coffee already in hand. Limits the waste of time by the Keurig in the office.
  2. Have a planner, notebook or your favorite stationary to map out your day. The idea of having something nice you like to write in, makes it easier to keep track of the tasks at hand. The objective to writing things down, is that you have an general idea of what your trying to accomplish in the 8 hours that you are there. This does not necessarily mean that you will get in done in the order your wrote it but it will help in keeping you on track on the most important.
  3. Check your email for what may take the most time, but you can get a jump on it by the time the disturbances, phones and other emails start. You will have a clear idea of what is expected on the project and if you do get interrupted you will find it easier to go back to the task as you have the core down.
  4. Have a drawer full of healthy snacks that you can grab at any time if you are unable to take a break. This will keep you on track with your other goals and fight off any cravings you may have.
  5. Take a moment to chit-chat with colleagues. This will see where everyone is and what they plan to get out of the day. It makes for an easier day for the team when everyone is on the same page!

Hopefully, these tips and tricks will help you have an easier start to the day!

Which one will you start to incorporate in your day?
