The Second Month Of Summer……

Soooo if you haven’t already noticed we’ve now entered the month of July……that came around pretty quickly, it was a little unexpected actually, just like the month of April, I also thought there’d be a 31st to this month, buuut there wasn’t, making yesterday the last day of June…….

Kinda crazy ain’t it, I think i’m always expecting there to be a 31st to every month, now that i’m thinking about it, but I always forget not every month has a 31st to it, leaving out February, that’s the only month I know without question that there’s only 28 days to it, unless there’s a leap year happening than of course there’s that extra day to it, making it to be 29 days of that month…….still find it weird that it’s like that, but I guess it keeps it different.

Not a lot to say with this month…..I mean to be fair it literally just started so it’s not really to be expected to have a lot to say, unless some of you have already had something happen to you today that you’re eager to express on whether that’s big or small than that’s a different story ha……

Last month was okay I guess…..at least until the end of it, yeah this past weekend wasn’t really all that great, some unexpected things happened, that I wasn’t really prepared for, so the ending of June ended up being a little bit of a bittersweet moment……but we’re now in July and having to leave June where it’s at……I just thought of something,

I know I said that this month showed up pretty quickly, but it actually didn’t……if anything it took it’s sweet time arriving and is more unexpected than feeling like it came rushing on through, I actually feel like the summer’s been a lot longer than usual……maybe that’s just me though!?

Either way, even though June had its ups and downs so to speak, July….well I don’t really know how it’s going to go or what to expect from it, I know in someway though it’s going to be different now and there’s a lot that might happen, most of it is most likely going to be unexpected and it’s either going to be a lot or in the middle, whatever way it goes, I feel i’m going to need to keep my feet planted in the ground a little more firmly all while doing my best to keep it all together somehow…….but it should be alright though

It might be tough and it’ll probably get overwhelming, but as long as I remember to breathe to keep calm……it should be fine…….

How’s July starting out for you guys!?

P.S. Here’s a new doodle I just recently gave color to, I created it in early June, but didn’t color it in until about the middle close towards the end, i’d say middle like probably a week after or so creating it!!

Slow Down….

When you find some pressure on the rise or you’re feeling a little irritated, take a moment to just slow down a little, feelings of pressure and stress can cause irrational ways of thinking and with that you won’t really be able to focus much on anything……so take a moment to firstly breathe when you feel the height of the pressure and guide yourself to slow down a bit.

I know it’s probably not the easiest thing to do once you’re already in a state of pressure, but it’ll help to re focus your thoughts to become a little more clearer, all while helping you to get back to a clam state of being…..now it may take some time before you’re fully back to feeling at ease again and that’s okay, it’s not about how quickly you can do it, but just taking the moment to become aware so that you can not only process things,

but also just be fully present towards what you’re doing…..slowing down doesn’t always necessarily have to mean doing things slow, it can mean to just….take your time and maybe take things in a little more, look around a bit and while you’re at it, breathe a little deeper than you might’ve before.

Try and appreciate the small things that you maybe missed before, find enjoyment it all that you do big or small, but most importantly have patience and trust that it’s all going to work out and be alright!!

Hold Your Defenses…..and Judgements……

By keeping our defenses at bay we keep from allowing what could potentially cause some kind of harm from entering, meaning if we go and pull out our defenses too soon, we may accidentally expose ourselves to unwanted situations, just by unawarely stepping on an unnoticed land mine, lying around……we have to try and stand guard even when we may not agree on certain circumstances, if we don’t allow judgements to target our mind, than they can have no affect on our state of mind.

Meaning our defenses are safe from impulsive actions, it’s not about always giving a reaction or feeling the need to add an opinion to every little thing we seem to disagree upon, but by allowing the judgements to seep through like sap from an oak tree, we keep from enjoying the sweetness of the sap and instead put our focus on a more bitter taste, that is not really meant to be there, but is now, because we chose to keep our attention on what could’ve had less of an affect had we just thought it through a little.

Now this isn’t something we need to wrap ourselves in frustration with if we did happened to go on our first instinct and find that it may not have been the best reaction and only affected us in a negative way than what we may have initially intended, while in the process also plummeting our own energy in the not so best way…….when that happens, keep away the judgements towards yourself and instead try and regroup, by doing that we learn to settle the mind and bring it back from a stressful state instead of allowing it to fully go out of control, become aware of your thoughts within that moment, show patience towards yourself as you’re regrouping,

and just keep your focus centered and know that sometimes the battles we think of challenging, may not actually need to be challenged, standing ground doesn’t always mean going at the first attack and when you see judgement heading towards you, allow it, but try and keep the interaction at a minimum or don’t interact at all and keep your peace of mind at peace.

You don’t want to lose any energy that keeps you afloat, when you pass judgement or receive judgement, that energy then turns bitter causing drainage (again in the not best way) losing you to miss out on any enjoyment that you might’ve been looking forward to whether planned or not in the process, so when you feel your guard getting ready to jump on impulse or you feel a judgement coming along, remember to take a second look at it and choose that battle wisely before taking action (preserve the energy)

Let’s Talk: Yoga

Good morning everyone, hope all your weeks are starting out alright and that you had a nice weekend!! Okay so some of you might be a little confused about the title, why are we talking about Yoga!? Well I attempted it yesterday and kinda wanted to share on it, from trying it yesterday though i’m feeling some soreness this morning, are you meant to feel sore after doing yoga!? It’s been a while that’s why i’m asking……

Now originally I was going to write about it, but as I was writing the post, it kept getting longer and longer and so I ended up doing a video on it instead and after editing that video well…..it was still quite long, I had a lot to express on it I guess, originally it was 30 mins and that was because it was the untouched version, by editing it though, it came out to 24 mins and 33 secs. Now that’s still pretty long compared to what I would’ve wanted it to come out to, but I think it came out alright and I was pretty happy with it!!

I do try to keep my videos and posts from exceeding a certain amount of talkage time (I don’t think talkage is a word, but just go with it okay) but yeah I try to keep at a certain length when writing and recording, but I can’t seem to help myself when expressing and so that’s why it always ends up being quite longer than I anticipated……

Here’s a quick run down of the video, i’ll share what I had originally wrote down, but it’s probably going to be worded differently:

So after waking up pretty early yesterday, I did a 7 min mediation and than I decided to do a little yoga as well, now I probably should’ve started a little easy to warm myself up and get use to the stretches and all that, but I instead went for a 40 min yoga video focusing on bringing creativity out of you, now I know what you’re saying “40 mins isn’t that bad” very true, yes…..except

That 40 min video took me about 2 HOURS!! Yes 2 hours to get through, luckily it was still morning time and that I got up a little early today as well, i’m finding the earlier you get up the more the morning feels like it’s there for a while as well as the day, if that makes sense!?

So yeah that’s just a little peak on my Yoga attempt after not doing it for a while, there’s also some fun moments in there as well as other things expressed!! Now you know why it’s so long, had I written it instead, you’d be reading for hours, but if you want to take a look at my latest video, you can watch it here: Let’s Talk: Yoga (Patience, Breath Work ect….)

Also if you want to try out the yoga video I did, you can find it here: Awaken The Artist Within|Yoga With Adriene it’s a great workout, but you just gotta have patience with it as well as yourself, just do your best!!

Hope everyone’s doing alright!!

Creatively Planning Ways To Be Productive,Well At Least That's The Title Anyway!!

How’s everyone doing, I hope you all had a good weekend and found a way to enjoy yourself in someway, I know everything’s a little crazy right now and we’re having to find ways to not only be preoccupied, but also productive as well, for some it might be a little hard and for others it’s not a problem, it can be a little challenging when finding ways to be productive especially when you know you’re not much of a productive planner type,

but sometimes that can be a good thing, because you’re now having to learn how to plan things out productively, but at the same time, if you’re not use to doing that it can be a little hard, because you may not know where to start even and it might leave you feeling frustrated, anxious or stressed out because of it…..but instead of getting ourselves all worked up about how we can be productive, we should calmly take a breath and try to reframe from stressing because that’s not really going to help us be productive,

well I mean not in the best way anyway…….sometimes it helps to use our creativity to come up with ideas, I mean to be fair our best ideas come to us when we’re not even thinking about them, most of them show up out of nowhere actually!! I think if we’re thinking too hard on it,

That’s where our mind goes blank, sometimes you just have to let the mind wander and see what it comes up with, you might get something good and you might get something that’s not that great, but at least you’d be able to add it to a list or something, I think when it comes to being productive,

It’s not about figure out ideas, but allowing our creativity to express itself in order for us to get those ideas!! You know come to think of it, maybe that’s what planning is too!? Who says planning has to be a serious matter, I mean sometimes it is, but other times we could also get a little creative with it,

It doesn’t always have to look like a blank list, guess that’s why people have those bullet journals and decorate it how they see fit, they’re always so interesting and it’s nice to see what kind of personality they bring to those journals…..but i’m getting off track here, productivity and planning can be creative too, if we just allow it to do so, if that makes any sense……

Even if we come up with just one idea, at least you know it’s getting there and even if it doesn’t sound like the greatest idea, giving it a go anyway may just surprise you, if we just allow ourselves to have a little fun with it, the ideas tend to find themselves and everything else circles in.

8am Chat……

Good morning everyone, right now it’s around 8:20 in the morning where I am right now, almost 8:30am by the time you see this it’ll probably be past 8, but i’ll try and get this to be up still around the morning time. I hope everyone’s doing alright and are doing their best to keep well, now i’m going to be honest, i’m not really doing the best right now, I didn’t really want to admit that, but it’s how i’m feeling so I feel I shouldn’t keep that in

I woke up a little too early this morning, about i’m going to say 7:30am, 7:40am around those times anyway, but I didn’t get up to about almost 8am…….with everything happening, there’s so much different emotions going around and a lot of people are stressing out, i’ve been trying to keep as calm as I can and stay low on the stress levels, sometimes they want to go high, but I try and keep them intact as best as possible, but I still have moments where I just don’t feel the best and my emotions start kicking in.

It’s funny though, because me and a friend of mine we’re talking yesterday about all of this stuff happening and were saying that even though theirs a lot of negative energy in terms of thoughts and emotions involving everything, we should try and look at the positives to it, now most would say there aren’t any, but there’s always a positive in something right!?

It’s just I guess it’s not easy to find one right now with all that’s going on, it’s kinda like spotting something that’s extra ordinary within a specific place and you see it and you’re so mesmerized by it, as you try and get closer a closer look at it, all these different things start happening all at once, but it’s still in your view to where you can see and just when you think you’ve caught a moment to get closer to it to where you’re almost able to grab it,

Everything just goes and starts back up again…….like seeing a very bright star in the sky in the night sky, you always feel you can grab it, even though it’s like a trillion miles away…..but maybe that’s the good thing to it, as long as it’s still in view, you’ve always got something to leave you feeling hopeful and with that, it lets you know that everything is going to be alright.

Did I Mention It’s March Already!? Yeah……

Soooo for those who didn’t know, which i’m sure you might’ve, but if not, we had a leap year this year which means that the month of February had a extra day in it and I gotta say, yesterday was probably one of the longest days ever, well at least it felt like was, the day kinda took it’s time yesterday which isn’t bad, it was just pretty long is all, but February is now over and we have entered the month of March……already!? I say this, but March kinda took a while to get here I suppose, if you really think about it, each month so far has really, taken it’s time, which doesn’t happen often…….

Maybe it’s just the year for it, who knows really……Man March has started out with quite the approach, a lot is happening to where you’re just having to feel prepared, yet sometimes you wonder if you’ve prepared the proper way for it, does that make sense!? Some things can still seem unclear,

but you’re having to trust that things will work out fine, even when you’re finding it a little hard you know!? I guess we just need to roll with the punches as best as we can and keep positive even when we’re having to push through it all……..it’ll be alright though, sure it may seem like it’s everywhere and we’re having to take it as it’s coming, but it’ll be alright, the month just started right!? We gotta have some positive mindset on it.

All The Love ❤ ❤

Just Gonna Wander A Bit….

You ever feel like you need your brain to wander, but you don’t really know why you want it to wander around for!? Yeah that’s how i’m feeling at the moment…..My brain isn’t in the mood to want to cooperate with me today, but I guess I need to let myself be okay with that, I did really want to record a video today, but I just couldn’t get my thoughts to form properly so I might have to rain check on it, I think the way the day went might’ve tuckered me out a bit, didn’t do that much just some slight running around, but yeah……

I shouldn’t go taking it as such a “Sigh” moment though, I mean I was saying to myself yesterday that I felt like I needed to write something it’s been about 5 days since my last post and I was going to try and write on here yesterday, but I had no idea what exactly I wanted to share so I didn’t,

But maybe today was the day to write for me and just relax a bit……i’ve kinda been in a mode trying to get some ideas down in terms of videos, trying to set it a certain way, just to get an idea, but maybe I just need to not think so hard and give it a little, i’m sure it’ll all come to me in time

I think that’s all I have to say though, but before I finish up this post, I did upload a new video, it was posted last night so if you want to take a look at that, it’s on the channel for whenever you guys want to watch it,

If you’ve been watching my videos I just want to say thank you, I really do appreciate it and I hope that you’ve all been enjoying them, but anyway I hope you all have had a good day and are enjoying your night and I hope your three day weekend treats you all well!! ^_^

All The Love ❤ ❤

Soooo I Did Something…..

After giving it a good amount of thought, I finally decided to go forth with something I had in mind for a while, I decided to start fresh and make a whole new channel, youtube channel, again it took a good amount of thought, I wasn’t completely sure on it when trying to decide, before deciding I thought about adding to the one I already had, but I felt that it would just be everywhere and I just felt the need to start something completely new away from that one, I still have it, I have all the ones i’ve made…..yeah I have 4 now……the last one was suppose to be the last one,

but yeah that changed……I really wanted to have something different with this one, which is why I went on and created a new one, kinda based around the blog actually, well it has the same name as the blog, I wanted to express in another way, so whenever i’m not really writing much, i’m sharing some stuff to be important in the moment and sometimes when you have a lot you feel like saying, it’s kinda hard to write it all, I mean you think a post isn’t all that long, until you find yourself reading it back and realize “oh well that’s quite a lot of words happening there!!”

No, but I thought for days where i’m not in much of a writing mode, I could share all that I want in a short video and get it out a bit more better when i’m not quite sure how in writing and vice versa. Now I only have two videos at the moment, I tried to share it on here, but it wasn’t quite working properly to where you could see them, but I did share the new channel, you’ll find it with the socials, twitter ect….feel free to check it out whenever

I hope you enjoy them in someway, but anyway that is all I wanted to share with you guys, just a quick post, I hope you all had a good day and your weekends been well and all and I hope your nights been well too!!

Calm…..It’s Okay To Feel You Know!?

Close your eyes and breathe relax and breathe……it’s okay, you’re okay, we are okay. Don’t think that it’s not okay to feel the way you are feeling right now, it’s alright, everything’s alright, I know all these feelings are swirling around and it don’t quite feel all that nice, but it’s going to be fine!!

Don’t think that you shouldn’t feel what it is you’re feeling, they’re meant to come out, it may not make sense to why they’re coming out, but you’re having to release them for a reason……it’s been sitting there for quite some time now, it’s time to let them out…….just because it’s confusing considering how the days been, it’s been pretty alright yeah!?

I know you’re feeling sorry and guilty for letting whatever is going on out, but you shouldn’t be, we all need to let it out sometime, even if it doesn’t quite make sense to when it feels the need to come out, it’s time to heal, allow yourself to heal the way it’s happening and don’t be so hard on yourself about it, allow yourself to feel those emotions and know that it’s for a reason and it’s okay…..it’ll take some time, but be patient……

You’re doing alright, so there’s no need to stress yourself out about it, just trust that everything is going to be alright and it’ll all work out in time, trust yourself and believe in yourself as well, don’t fret it’s all going to be alright!! 🙂
