Admit When You Are Wrong

Forgiveness, a piece of the journey in the puzzle of life that can be difficult from all angels, but so vital for well being.

While forgiving others and yourself are two very important aspects of forgiveness there is one step beforehand that can potentially throw you for a loop.

Admitting you may have hurt someone you care about in the first place.

I think if you ask my parents what the most stubborn feature of my personality was growing up, admitting that I was wrong is up there high on the list, if not number one. However it had also been one of my biggest lessons in this life, learning to take a good look at my own actions, owning them and then apologizing for them.

Asking for forgiveness is critical, but we must admit we misspoke, misstepped or hurt someone in the first place to do so, intentional or not. And, while it’s a difficult concept to swallow, it’s incredible growth when you realize the bridges it can mend and the peace it can bring into your life and to those around you.

Forgiveness is freeing, but remember to take a good look at yourself and understand that in order to take that jump we must first step into responsibility of our own actions.

Be honest with yourself and others and you will find peace in your heart 🧡 Have an amazing day!

Unplug

Take a day to check in with yourself, to calm the mind, reflect on the heart and center your intentions. Some times we are overwhelmed and don’t even realize it, and it can take a toll on us mentally, emotional and physically. 🧡

Self-care is not a selfish request from yourself, but a necessary one. Rejuvenate all that makes you tick by unplugging from all that fills your thoughts, even for a moment. Remind yourself to breathe, fill your lungs, and then take on the the week with fresh eyes and an open heart.

Unplug and re-center for you, so you can accomplish all you dream as the best version of you 🦋🧡

Have an incredible day!

Quiet the Devil Inside

I’m sure I am not alone when I reveal that one of my biggest struggles throughout my life has been self-doubt. And, as an added bonus being an over thinker by nature allowed for deep conversations with myself on how many different ways I wasn’t good enough. I believe we are the best at beating ourselves up because we are our own easiest target.

Acknowledging the self defeating voices in my head and learning to quiet them has been one of my most difficult lessons and one that I work on daily. However, when I succeed and I clear away the self doubting fog, the road to my dreams begins to pave its own way. 🧡

You will face this battle more than one time in your journey toward you, and it will make you question all that you have done and all you want to do, but you must quiet the devil inside who attempts to stop you from being who you are meant to be, and listen to those who love you, and listen to the heart that drives you as they whisper that you are enough.

We are all meant for greatness whatever the definition for that may be for us, and when we believe that for ourselves, anything is possible 🦋🧡

Have a beautiful day and remember you are enough!

Define Your Happy and Walk Toward It

Every persons’ definition of happy may hold a different meaning. I feel it’s important that you recognize what that meaning is for you and once you have defined it, understand that it is up to you to walk toward it.

It’s so very easy to blame those around us or circumstances we find ourselves in for our happiness. What we do not always realize is that we have control of nothing but our inner voice and a choice. A choice to make our lives more amazing than we thought possible.

Your happiness depends on you, and while it may not always be clear or it may seem like a dark path to walk, when we realize the light comes from within, the search for it elsewhere is no longer required.

Your happiness resides with you 🧡 have an amazing day 🦋🧡

Tell Them

You can never express too much appreciation or love for those who make you feel like the real authentic you is perfect just the way you are. 🧡

I’m talking about those people in your life who share your energy, laugh at jokes only you find funny, whose patience is never tested when you can’t make a decision, who believe your obsessions or quirks or outlandish ideas about life, love and the pursuit of happiness are what make you a person they want to spend time with and share their heart with, who somehow understand how you are feeling just by the tone of your voice, and who believe in you so much you have no choice but to believe in yourself. 🦋🧡

Those people are the ones that make your soul sing and those people are a gift. Tell them. Tell them how they fill your life with confidence and joy, and tell them how much they mean to you. Your words will not be unheard but cherished, and the feelings I’m sure will be shared.

I’m absolutely blessed to be gifted such people in my life and to all of you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for seeing me, and sharing this beautiful life with me. 🧡

Have an amazing day!
