Be Prepared…..

Before we start going on with this topic first i’d like to give it a bit of light by saying that this title, is also a song title, from one of my favorite movies the Lion King, I wrote it out and thought of the song because yeah I just did!!

Now this may get serious, but it may not, i’m not really sure how i’m expecting this post to go and maybe I don’t need to, so i’m just going to let it flow out how it’s wanting to……they say it’s important to be prepared always, yet at times there are moments that even when you think you’re prepared, there’s always a chance something’s going to end up catching you off guard……no matter how many times you may do your best to make sure

You’re not missing something, a lot of those times you may because you can’t be prepared for everything, sometimes a lot of the things that happen, comes from it being unexpected and yeah not knowing what to expect can get stressful and there’s going to be moments where you may get frustrated or angry even, but when we start to feel those emotions……we have to keep in mind that it’s not going to always be something we can control.

Things happen and sometimes even when you’re prepared, it doesn’t mean that you’re always going to be fully prepared, prepared……maybe that doesn’t make much sense…..but what i’m trying to get at is……even when things seems to be a little out of control……be prepared for the moments that you’re not prepared for, it’s like that saying expect the unexpected….

A lot of the time we don’t know a lot that is going to happen, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t always suit up for it in the best way possible, we may not know what’s to come, but we have to believe that whatever it is, it’ll be good in someway and who knows it may just be the very thing that we’ve been looking for without realizing or most likely something we didn’t see coming that we didn’t even think about in the first place!!

When we least expect it, we will soon find or come across something that might just be hard to explain at this moment, but will soon make much more sense to where we know and feel it to be just that thing that we needed……it’s all about patience and trusting the process that whatever is coming, we may not always be entirely prepared, but for the most part we’re still prepared in a way, though there’s times we don’t always expect 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!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Tackling The Important Stuff……

Although things seems to be a little on pause with everything going on, it doesn’t mean that we should take away our focus on what is needing our focus…..there’s a lot of reasons to why everything is happening, mainly because the Earth is needing a little bit of healing, so that’s what it’s doing and that’s why we’re experiencing, what we’re experiencing!!

That being said, I do hope that those who are either effected or being effected heal and get better, we all know that this will all pass in time and that we just have to wait it out and I know for many it’s a little hard, but all we can do is try our best to keep focus and actually try and use this time wisely to work on the things that need to be worked on or tackle the sort of things that need tackling and all that jazz…….

It’s during moments like this where we’re having to really reflect and think about a lot of things…..what kind of things you might ask!? Well that depends really, sometimes only you know, what kind of things have a lot of you been finding yourself reflecting on lately!? If you’re answering or thinking to yourself about it, then it’s those things, now I don’t have a clue what those things are, but it’s that……if you’ve been ignoring certain stuff,

You’ll find that with this moment where we’re being forced…..okay let’s not use the word force, instead let’s use the word…..ADVISED!! We’re being advised to stay in until everything clears up……now you’ll notice that a lot of the things that we may have been ignoring let’s say, have found it’s way back on our attention radar, you may wonder why and it’s because we haven’t quite dealt with it, obviously, be it on purpose, not having the time,

or just not really knowing how to respond to it and so on…….with everything now going on though, those things are making themselves known and we’re being again, advised to try and deal with them….how, we may still ask or wonder!? By acknowledging it, instead of trying to avoid it!!

By avoiding it, we’re only delaying the issue or the things that clearly need working on, the more we avoid it, the worst it gets, you never want things to get too bad to the point where everything starts falling apart, so if we can we should really take a look and start acknowledging the things that need acknowledging because it’s so easy to put things off, the real challenge is realizing something needs working on and trying our best to look at those things, see what needs our attention and working on fixing it if we can.

I feel like I have more to say with this topic, but I think I might end up doing a video on it and talking a little bit more about it, this is just the main stuff!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

I Swore Myself I’d Leave Myself Alone……

For those wondering, this line is from one of my favorite songs by one of my all time favorite artists, i’ve talked about her before, Alexz Johnson, not sure if that rings a bell, but…..the last time I talked about her, was when I was talking about her latest song called Weight, it’s been a while since I actually listened to that song, now she’s got new ones, plus a new album, that I still haven’t heard…..there’s a lot of songs from the artists I listen to that I need to check out, I always think of listening to them, but I never really get around to it, I might have to pick a day to just sit and have a listen to them.

But enough about music talk, that’s not actually where it was going….I just thought i’d have a chat about things if that’s alright…..if you do want to talk about music do let me know and i’ll make sure to write a separate post focusing on that……if you’re curious to check out the post that I mentioned you can find it here: Now Playing….Weight By Alexz Johnson

Anyway let’s have a chat shall we!?…..okay so i’m going to be honest i’m not really sure what i’m planning on talking about, I just know that i’d like to chat a bit, now normally i’d express the things i’m wanting to express, but maybe we should do it a little differently, how about we talk on the line of Alexz’s song careless and it’s meaning, now when you look at it, you’d say it’s pretty self explanatory right!? Yeah well i’d say so too, anytime I hear this song and this line comes up in the song, I always feel it and it’s because it’s a relatable line, most of us don’t know how to leave ourselves alone or better yet ease up on ourselves, we’re always so harsh for some reason.

I mean i’m sure that reason is to make sure we’re our best self, which is great, but we always tend to be the most harsh when we know we’re already feeling a certain way, it’s like even when we know we should shape up and get over our feelings, we’re still harsh about it, saying things like “you’re always doing that” “why can’t you just stop thinking so hard” and so on and it always feels like there’s two versions of ourselves the being that we are, but also this other person whose meant to be there to keep us moving or at least does they’re best to keep us on our feet……

Now we all know the saying on “tough love” and for some it works, but others not always, I mean why do we always think being judgmental and scolding ourselves is the best thing to do!? Why can’t we instead be a little patient with ourselves!? If there’s a moment where we’re feeling agitated, emotional and other non great feelings, why can’t we support ourselves for a moment and just allow ourselves to feel!?

This might sound confusing and may not make much sense……but what I mean is, we shouldn’t go screaming at ourselves because we’re feeling a certain way and we shouldn’t go judging ourselves either, getting more upset with ourselves especially when we’re already upset, doesn’t really fix things does it!? If anything it only makes us more upset,

because there’s more pressure being added, now sure pressure is apart of life, but do we really need to give ourselves more pressure!? We have to be better at being patient with ourselves and not be so harsh with the things we do, especially with how we handle our emotions and thoughts, because those are the big things that really can get to us, if we let it…….

I think instead of going for the attack, the best way to handle those moments, is to just be more aware and do our best to make sure we don’t overload and if we know we need a moment to release thoughts, emotions and so fourth, we just gotta let ourselves have that moment, but we also shouldn’t allow ourselves to get wrapped in it for too long,

Just take it as going for a walk or hiking of some sort, take that moment, but don’t allow it to overtake you when you need it and also just patience……we may need to take this line of Alexz’s song as a reminder for the times we go to be harsh to ourselves, but stop because we’re having to remember to be aware not to, maybe if we do that, we’d see a bit of a difference.

But that’s all I have, now before we close this off, I just wanted to share that, there’s a new video on my channel if you’re interested, I uploaded it Wednesday, since we’re getting close to midnight here, i’m just having a bit of a chat, but if you want to check that out, you can find it here: 7pm With A Different View but anyway I should probably head to sleep now, seeing as it’s now midnight, I hope you all are well and you guys have a good night.

Sometimes You Just Need To Laugh At Yourself……

So the theme of course for today is random……you know that moment when you’re trying to focus or you know you need to focus on something, but your mind has other plans for you like thinking of all these unnecessary things that probably has a lot of examples I could give really, but I don’t really have any good ones at the moment…….you want to get frustrated with yourself about it, because when there’s something in mind that needs all your focus and your mind decides it wants to jump and swing all around tree branches like it’s some sort of monkey species and you can’t get it to stay still and cooperate with you it can be a bit of an annoyance you know!?

However sometimes I guess we need to just say “alright whatever” just for a small moment and let it run wild for a bit, it may not be the best idea to allow our minds to wander around when it’s wanting, but maybe if we let our brains have a small moment to just go for it, we might be surprise to what it can possibly bring, sometimes our best ideas come from wandering at times, but that being said it is important to make sure we don’t let it go off too far, because if we did then we’d never be able to focus……

If we allowed our brains a little bit of some random time and then say “alright now it’s time to focus here” we give ourselves a little bit of a balanced in a way, sometimes we have to just let the moment happened when it happening and not put so much emphasis on trying to get it to do what we want it to do right then and there and just laugh at ourselves instead of getting stressed out and frustrated about it.

By doing that we learn to not only enjoy the moment, but also have a little fun…..even when we know we need to be focused!! So if you’re having a not being able to concentrate type of day and you find your brain is just wanting to go everywhere when you don’t need to, just breathe, let the moment happen, be patient with yourself and laugh if you need to, don’t worry the focus will come back eventually, for now just……allow it to be!!

Attraction…..

They say you attract what you feel and what you think, so if your emotions and thoughts are at a higher vibration, 90-95% of the time you will always attract the things that you want and desire quicker than you might expect, if however your vibration is on the low scale, well it’s going to be harder to receive all that you’re wanting when you want it.

It’s not that we won’t get it, it’s just that sometimes we blocking ourselves temporarily from receiving it, they also say that by wanting something, you already are convincing and telling yourself that you don’t already have what you most want and desire, so instead of being like a magnet and attracting the things we want to come to us, we instead deflect our attraction…..like light off a mirror or something like that.

If you notice a lot of the things we happen to come by have all happened unexpectedly, when we think so hard on something or want something to happen really badly, we tend to cause some kind of friction, resistance more like and because we resist we keep what we want from getting to us.

When we put all our focus on wanting something to happen right away, we stop it from happening right away, instead of leaving it to have some breathing room. It’s like trying to rearranging furniture in your home, but everything is in the middle of the floor so you’re having to tightly squeeze yourself in to where there’s available space to move around.

As if it’s like a tightly condense maze, in other words with everything being in the middle of the room you’re left with, but so much space to navigate through, which will bring upon frustration and stress because you’re trying so hard to find your way through all this furniture to get to the next room.

Now unless you’re some kind of secret spy that loves tight spaces and isn’t claustrophobic there’s no need to do all that, you can get through just by moving something over if you’re able to and if not, patience shall help and eventually all the furniture will be right back in it’s rightful space.

In order to attract what it is we want, we gotta give it some kind of breathing room as well as keep from focusing on how bad we want it to happen, it should be easy yes!! Is it!? Not so much no……

What’s difficult about wanting to attract the things you’re wanting is, it requires our train of thoughts assistants and sometimes/majority of the time, it doesn’t like to cooperate all that well with us, so a lot of the time it tends to derail us off the tracks that we’re needing to stay on in order for everything to come to fruition and that can cause the attraction we have set in mind to become a little bonkers……although we may try to put the best positive energy into our thoughts and send it out into the universe to process……we end up unknowingly sending out the opposite kind of energy sometimes, why!? because we attract what it is we feel and think,

Everything comes from thought as well as emotion, sometimes we don’t realize that we’re thinking in a specific sorta kind of way and most of the time we don’t have a clue that a lot of what we think has come to life within our reality, it’s a weird, yet not so weird type of thing.

With trying to attract a certain or specific thing or so, we have to be aware of our thoughts and emotions that can be a bit on the tricky side, because our emotions and thoughts go based off our mood, well it’s the other way around more like, but regardless of that if either one falls on the not so great category scale, it can trip us up at times.

So how do we deal with that!? Well we just have to be more aware with the way we feel and think as they will come hand in hand at times, once we become more aware, everything else will come together quicker then we may expect…..all it takes is a side of fries, patience and some work, but most importantly some faith, trust, and pixie dust.

No Use Crying Over Spilled Tea…..Literally!!

We’ve entered a week now in the month of January, what does that mean!?…..that we just entered a week within the new year pretty much, nothing else to it really just that, the day started out pretty well…..

I say well in a both sarcastic and regular way, spilled some tea this morning and I don’t mean just regularly, I mean I SPILLED IT!! You should get what I mean by that when I say it, it was great though, nothing like a very hot tea spilling on you early in the morning, yeah loved it, wouldn’t have asked for anything better (no but seriously it was really hot it and it burned) luckily though I was able to change, it wasn’t too bad though, but still no one likes hot tea or any hot beverage for the matter spilling on them you know!?

I blame the honey I was trying to add to it for being so rock solid that it knocked over, but hey it happens, it’s fine!! I know I haven’t quite written in the past three days, I just hadn’t had anything I wanted to write about so I thought i’d leave it for when I knew I had something, plus I thought i’d be nice to be able to write once it hit a week for this month and year, why!? I really don’t know, but it just seemed good when I thought about it!!

Today just probably wasn’t the best day in terms of things going on properly the way they should’ve, but sometimes you just gotta make yourself another tea and go with what the day has set up for you, even if it happens to be specifically one of those type of days you know!? Overall though, the day wasn’t too bad, it was okay, sure the day wasn’t on my greatest side,

but I took it as best as I could, what else can you do right!? I tell you though if the day was actual person and you could speak to it, yeah it would have the time of it’s life, it’s like your best friend just randomly feeling the need to prank you for whatever reason you couldn’t guess, but you just go along with it because, you know their just going to keep at it no matter what you say……that’s how i’m choosing to look at it anyway!!

Better to look at it in a some kind of good light then stressing over it and choosing to react negatively to it, it’s easy to do that, it’s harder to view from a more lighter perspective and give a situation of some sort a more positive outlook or at least somewhat of a decent outlook, sometimes things don’t align right at/in that very moment in the way you think it’s going to go and sure it’s not always the greatest feeling when that happens,

but it doesn’t mean it won’t come together and intwine, it will!! You just got to have those kind of trip up days a bit and when you least, least expect it, you’ll see it come together properly, patience is key here!!

It’s not always an easy thing to keep in mind, but staying calm as best as possible and keeping patient is what is needed in order to not freak out.

So how was your day!?

All The Love ❤ ❤

On To A New Decade…..

So we have officially entered the year 2020 and we’re already on the 3rd day of the month of January, i’d say crazy, but I mean we all know that days go by pretty quickly, it’s only where we hit a week or two where we can then say crazy!! Happy New Year by the way, you’d think i’d say that first, but nope not all all, I wouldn’t have forgotten it though…..maybe.

Anyway I don’t know about you guys, but it’s still pretty surreal to me that we are within a new decade, it still weird because I still expect it to be 2019, but I know we are no longer around that area of the teen’s and that’s odd, by the way has anyone else written down 2019 by accident even though it’s 2020 now, because I did almost, I still sometimes go to write it,

but then realize “oh yeah 2019 is over, it’s 2020 now” I think some of us still need time to let it sink in and if not everyone then just me…..I thought about writing the day of new years, but I wanted to give it a bit of time before I actually wrote my thoughts out on how it feels and all that jazz, it feels different, but also not, but also yes….does that make sense!? Let’s hope so.

Now most people will tell you that they probably have this whole year planned out, I on the other hand can’t tell you that, I mean who knows what this year has in store, a lot of unexpected things could happened in a way that is well…..unexpected, but i’m keeping my hopes that all those unexpected things that are to come with this year will be good and only good, do I know what those unexpected things are!? No I do not….

but you can only wish for the best and trust that everything will align in the way it’s meant to come together, you thought I was going to say align again right!? i’m not that predicable…..most of the time haha…..no, but seriously stressing about what’s going to happen and how it’s going to happen or when, will only leave you to stress more which will leave you to become frustrated and even though we may feel frustrated, getting worked up because we’re frustrated and don’t know how everything will go

Isn’t worth the stress, you have to trust and let it go for the moment, once you do that, you’ll soon find that everything falls where it’s meant to, but only if you let it, this is something i’m having to remind myself about and that I try to keep in mind, it’s hard, it’s not easy, but you find when you let things be and not add so much focus to it, it does work out,

So i’m not sure how this year will turn out, I mean it’s just started you know……but whatever happens and comes about, I have to trust that it’s going to be good and that things will work out and be A Okay!!

SO, how’s all of your 2020’s going so far!?

All The Love ❤ ❤
