M O N D A Y S!

Mondays are the days that begin again, it brings connection which allows the rest of the days to follow soon after! We often see Mondays in a Garfield the cat sort of way, it’s not everyone’s favorite day, but the way I like to see it, with Mondays you get more of a clean slate with it. Monday’s aren’t really a favorite of mine either, but I have grown to appreciate it a little more, it’s not a bad day specifically it all just comes down to what actually transpires within the day that can leave it feeling like the best day ever or the most crappiest day ever, but it also comes to how well you handle and get through the day in the start of the week!

Mondays can always feel like a chore to get through, but the reason for that isn’t the day itself, but the energy we put out with it, we look at Monday’s and think “Ugh” not realizing that those thoughts have the ability to lead out the rest of our days for that week. It’s true…..the energy that you put out will always be the energy that is given back to you, it’s a reflection and if you keep the reflection the same, you leave no room for it to be different….unless you switch up the energy!

You can still feel those emotions, you just got to be mindful of them…..which can be a bit hard, to be quite honest, I struggle with this sort of problem, now I don’t mean in a sense of not liking Mondays, like I said I’ve grown to respect Mondays, I see it in a different way and feel it to have a specific theme! To explain it, would be hard, so it may not make much sense! The way I look at it, is…..we all feel the days differently in a more deeper way that can be hard to pin point, yet it still feels to be of some kind of importance, now what kind of importance it is, comes down to what it feels like to you!

I’ll try and give an example the best way I’m able to, so it can kind of make sense…to me, Mondays have this sort of putting pen to paper kind of thing to it, so brainstorming in a way, preparing for whatever it is that needs preparing and working towards how you want the rest of the week to play out, not in a busy way, but in a more efficient way that’s not going to leave you feeling like there’s still loads to do at the end of it! I also feel music to be involved in some way, but that’s because I love music, but for some reason for me I think of Mondays and music comes to mind first, but it also has that feeling of coming across something new, new music, new video games, potential ideas of some sort those kind of things, just full of new discoveries!

Mondays have a practice vibe to it, it’s not about getting everything done all at once, but just trying to figure out efficient ways of doing things, learning to include the practice of managing things better and seeing how well you’re able to prepare yourself in a more still kind of way if that makes better sense….if it doesn’t that’s okay, but that how I always feel Mondays to be like at least to me when thinking about it!

Now I may have wrote all of this, but it doesn’t mean I’ve mastered any of it….it’s actually one of the things I struggle with, knowing how to prepare things out properly, now planning may not be a strong suit of mine, I’m more with the go with the flow kind of girl, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop trying to figure it out, eventually it will click and I’ll know that I will better understand it in a way that it becomes second nature in way, it just comes with practice same with everything else!

Back to the whole energy of Monday’s though, hopefully I didn’t get too off track there and that this all still makes sense, my deliveries aren’t always the greatest I know, but to wrap everything up in a somewhat slightly nice slanted bow…..Monday’s don’t have to always seem so draggy and chore daunting, it can be fun and full of excitement, you just have to give it the energy you want out of it and shield off any negative projectiles coming at you the best way you can….really it just comes down to making the best out of a situation and being mindful of what thoughts and emotions you’re giving off for the day!

If you start the week off in a panic….the rest of day is going to be filled with chaos most likely (not always) but it will feel like it! If you wake up thinking to yourself “I just want it to be Friday already” knowing the week just started then don’t be surprise when you feel it to be Wednesday, but it’s actually Tuesday! We have to try and give each day the best energy we can, we don’t have to be feeling 100%, however if the day is feeling super crappy, find something that will help change up that crappy energy or if you find it’s going slow….and you’ve done everything you needed to do that day….don’t be afraid to use that extra time on yourself if it’s needed!

Maybe there’s something you meant to do, but never got around for, you can always use that extra time for that thing you’ve been wanting to do….if you have that extra time, try and see in what ways you can use it! Maybe you don’t have that extra time and the day has flown away from you, if that’s the case try not to get too upset on not getting all that you wanted done that day, like I said not everything needs to be done all at once…..allow yourself to leave room for what hasn’t been done then for another time, because 9/10 it’s meant for another time, allow yourself to finish up what it is your doing in the moment and leave what you weren’t able to do for later.

Mondays are at the beginning of the week for a reason…..we need Monday in order for the other days to flow properly without, it would always feel like something is missing…..Mondays are what a blank canvas is before the creativity start flowing, it’s about preparation in getting things ready before you’re really ready to go, that’s what Monday’s mean to me, maybe it means something different to you! Feel free to share what you feel when you think of Mondays!

2022….Feels Weird

Happy New Year to you all! I hope that you were able to enjoy your weekend slash holiday season, it was a bit weird how both Christmas and New Years fell on the same weekend like day, both were on a Friday and Saturday, apparently it’s not the first time it’s happen….I’m just noticing it now, I guess that tells you how much I pay attention when it comes to the calendar!

I still can’t believe that we’re already in 2022….I wrote the date down for the first time today and it just felt weird to kind of see, it’s like even when you know it, seeing it can be a bit hard to process for a while, at least within the first couple of days whenever we arrive in the new start of a year, although 2021 was just 3 days ago, but it’s still leaves you a bit surprised!

Hopefully most of you out there have had a good start to the year already, there may be a few of you that are still trying to find your footing into this new year and if that is the case, just know that you don’t have to be hard on yourself if 2022 has left you feeling as though you have to have most things in play already, it’s okay if you’re still trying to sort out how you want this year to mean for you, not everyone is the same, we all process things differently and some of us need some time to work out how we’re going to stack those Legos and decide what it is we want to paint, whatever pace you’re at right now just keep going!

If you find that things are moving for you nice and smoothly great, but if you feel you’re having to tinker with a couple of things here and there and think a little bit that’s fine too, there’s nothing wrong with knowing that you may sigh as you’re working on certain projects and what not, realizing it’s going to take a bit longer! Sometimes you have to tinker and look into what might be the problem of the situation in what you’re focusing on to be able to understand it better, you may even find that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it and that maybe it’s just a small issue at hand that can easily be fixed!

And if not, well that’s why you try something new and see if that works out better, there’s ways to get anything to work, sometimes all that’s needed is a bit of tweaking for something to come together, it could be in a way that you had envision or in a way that you may not have saw it at first, but found it to be better than what you originally had in mind, now those moments are my favorite sometimes, although I like when things come out how I had felt it to look like, but there are days where it doesn’t happen like that and I’ll change it as a temporary fix only to like it better the temporary way because it looked best over the original!

I find when that happens, you come across unexpected inspiration that you weren’t even looking for, but it just so happened to come across to you accidently, although I like to think that nothing is accidental when it involves being inspired it’s just the fact of certain inspirations coming to you in unexpected ways, if you stumble across it, it was probably because you were meant to stumble across it, be it accidental, on purpose or just randomly! There’s no coincidences in anything, at least it’s what I like to believe!

What was the actual point to this post!? I’m not sure, I just know it’s been a good while since I’ve written anything and I guess I’m feeling 2022 will be more of inspiration in some way and that could mean a lot of different things for some of you out there, whatever it means to you is how it will show itself and I guess whatever it means to me….will show itself the way it feels best, in the mean time I’ll be tinkering with different ideas!

That all being said, I do hope 2022 is treating you guys well, we’re already on the 3rd day of January….weird to say, I know….but I hope you’re doing well and that you’re taking care of yourself, please stay safe out there, I know there’s a lot of people that have been catching this virus left and right these past few days, so please protect yourself and keep others safe, keep your hands clean, wear your masks, all the safety things that is needed, just be careful if you’re out…..Happy New Year and welcome 2022

All The Love ❤ ❤

If I Was A Painter…..

Let’s do something different today…….let’s pretend we’re painters, if you were a painter what would you paint!?…….if I were to tell you what i’d paint, i’d just say that at the moment I don’t know, right now, i’m just looking at a blank canvas trying to figure that out myself………

If I had to describe what i’d want it to look like though, I don’t know, I’d probably want it to have a calm feeling of someplace that calls to me, i’d probably would use greens, maybe some blues, browns, you know colors that feel nice and calm…….

I’d want it to have a special kind of feeling, that’s slightly hard to imagine, but is also very easy to feel, something that when you think about it, it brings the biggest smile to your face and makes you happy to be there……

You know like you’re right where you should be……I want it to be a place that isn’t too hot, but where it isn’t that cold either, a place that has just the right amount of both cold and hot……..i’d love for it to rain, not too much of course, but just enough you know, wouldn’t want it to be too big of a place, but I wouldn’t want it to be too small either.

I’d like it to be a place that makes you go, this feels right and it feels good……..i’d love for there to be cafes, but i’d also love for there to be a lot of nature around, it would be nice if it had an old timey (if that’s a word) feel too it, enough where it just feels good to be around.

Have it where it has a rustic, but slightly modern look to it, not too modern though, more like an old town where you can feel the story behind it, as well as feel yourself connecting to it……….some type of village of some sort, you know!?

I don’t know, I guess if I had to paint something, i’d want it to have those kind of descriptions to it, you know a place that feels right, the moment you’re in it…….that’s a portrait i’d hang up on my wall and look at a lot.

How about you guys, what would you paint, if you were a painter!?

All The Love ❤ ❤
