💕 I really needed to hear this one today. 🌷 "Tuesday, January 16, 2018
I RECOGNIZE THE ORDER OF THE UNIVERSE WITHIN AND AROUND ME.
A helpful exercise in recognizing order is to imagine an aesthetically pleasing object that exemplifies order and symmetry. Nature provides numerous examples. The spirals of a seashell or the structure of a honeycomb are pictorial affirmations of order.
This exercise helps me realign with the Truth of my being and affirm that I, too, am part of divine intelligence and order. I know from experience that times of distraction or hardship will pass and divine order will prevail. Being spiritually aware, working in harmony with the Universe, and trusting in divine order does not mean there will not be problems. However, it offers assurance that guidance will come, and I will learn from and overcome challenges creatively and confidently.
For God is a God not of disorder but of peace.—1 Corinthians 14:33"-Dailyword Magazine
When everything is moving and shifting, the only way to counteract chaos is stillness. When things feel extraordinary, strive for ordinary. When the surface is wavy, dive deeper for quieter waters. -Kristin Armstrong #findingpeace#selflove#takeabreak#takeabreath
É a minha palavra para o início de um novo ciclo. Estas últimas semanas foram dedicadas inteiramente a um processo de (re)avaliação interna. Procurei novas energias. Procurei aceitar as minhas qualidades e os meus defeitos, procurei aceitar e aprender a gostar do que sou enquanto pessoa. Para alguém que sempre preferiu ajudar os outros ao invés de si mesmo é um desafio pessoal porque dando prioridade ao que me vai na alma, estou-me a (re)conhecer, sozinha.
Para quem tem muita facilidade em se auto criticar e exigir sempre mais de si, às vezes demais, é um desafio ainda maior. Mas não faz mal. Faz parte de nós, do que somos. Aceitar que às vezes não conseguimos alcançar o que exigimos de nós próprios não faz mal. Não quer dizer que somos um fracasso. Temos de aceitar. Move forward. Há muito mais para vir.
Recomeçar. De mangas arregaçadas, espectante para o que este novo ciclo me tratá.
This morning I was excited to try my new peanut butter with my protein shake and I gotta say, I’m not fully impressed. I really didn’t get that peanut butter taste and I’m wondering if it’s because I only used one tablespoons instead of 2 which is what they recommend. It might also be that since it’s a chocolate flavored PB and my protein shake is also chocolate that the flavors just blended together. I will be trying it again tomorrow so stay tuned!
Coffee and a bit of reading before I get my day started ☕️ For awhile I've been really trying to find ways to clear my mind, and just feel "refreshed". All I want is a clear mind and to reconnect with myself 🌸💜 #findingpeace#clearmind#selfcare#coffee
Self motivation does not always just appear. Sometimes we have to yank it out of hiding. Grab hold of it with something else attached to get us moving.
Try pairing something you already enjoy with what you need to do. * You love being outdoors and you're committed to losing 15 pounds, but the thought of joining a gym makes you want to become a hermit. Try walking outside.🌄
* You love listening to classical music, have vowed to eat healthier, but have never enjoyed cooking very much. Try listening to some classical notes while whipping up something healthy. 🎶
How can you be creative in order to keep your motivation today? Let me know ⬇️ and have a great Day! Do Well * Be Well
Whether you’re talking about grief or the deep division that still resides in our country, this quote is one to take to heart.
Because in either case, we truly cannot move forward if we allow bitterness to take over. Trust me, I know it's far easier said than done but it's always worth the effort, dontcha think? 💛

I used to be ashamed of my "scars". I used to think I wasn't whole because child sexual abuse takes away the sense of self.... .
I am not a " Everything happens for a reason" person, nor am I a "everything is part of a larger plan" person. I don't want to be apart of any plan in which I am "supposed to be" sexually abused by my father for over a decade, having to participate for my survival.. Or that I was supposed to be abused, by a friend's step father along side my friend. I am not interested in that in any way, and I cannot ever be convinced. (I fully support those that find solice in religion or believe in a plan, it just isn't for me)... . . .
What I do believe that people are resilient. I cannot choose what happened to me as a child, I don't choose the random bad stuff that happens, like when my car was totalled. I believe that due to the trauma, I have a different set of skills than others that do not have a similar traumatic experience. I can choose to harness those skills. And I can choose to help others. My past has led me to where I am today, and I am choosing to make the most of it.
#mondaymobility bringing a little flow.
Sometimes it just feels so good, and so right, to just move your body.
I’ve done yoga like 3x in my life...so I just make up my own flow 💁🏼
But I was feeling stiff and achy so I decided to just move around and stretch and I felt 100x better.
Not to mention it seriously does help bring you clarity and really ground you.
I busted out a bunch of work after this and was super productive, so I’m all about it.
Who else just finds just a little movement makes them a million times more productive?! 🙋🏼
Happy Monday, beautiful people!
End your night reflecting and doing something you love!
I love peanut butter! I can eat it all day everyday. My go to snack is apples with peanut butter. However peanut butter tends to be a little high on calories and therefore I avoid it when I’m on my meal plan. Today I decided to buy some powder peanut butter and I can’t wait to mix it into my protein shake tomorrow morning!! I just really hope I like it
Have you tried powder peanut butter? If so what did you think?
