Sometimes my mind be... be playing tricks on me...🗣Ahhhhhh!!! ~ Wisdom Wednesday ~ 🕵🏽♂️ ✨👉🏽
🎶 Life doesn’t always have to be so sad, or be so bad, or such a drag, every every time, all the time. 🎶🙇🏽♂️ ~ When times are tough try to switch your mentality from “l’m broken and helpless” to “l’m growing and healing” ~ Try to change your thinking to “If I stay this way it can be so unappealing and not a good feeling” 👎🏽
We can learn to get up, anticipate that the day will probably have a few good moments and a few bad ones, and then just deal with it. 😰 Take it all in, deal as best we can, and from time to time, it’s ok to take a hit. Don’t always throw a fit. 😩No matter what life throws your way, no matter how unfair it may seem, refuse to play the victim. Refuse to be ruled by F.E.A.R. pessimism, and negativity. Refuse to quit. 🙅🏽♂️
👨🏽🎤💪🏽 Be a warrior and work through whatever life throws your way with courage, love and positivity. And continue to keep pushing forward, because by nature we really are survivors of the unfairness of life. We really are stronger than we think. We really are of a great persons. 🚶🏽♂️🕴🏻🕴🏻We really are capable of achieving far more than we believe. 👨🏽💻👨🏻🎨👨🔬👨🏼🚒👨🏽🍳
H.A.N.D (Have a nice day) 🙃 💃🏽 🎉 🕺🏾🎊 #Wisdom#Wednesday 🕵🏽♂️✨🙏 👉🏽
I've had a brush with death 3 times in the last two weeks. Twice I almost got hit by another vehicle or crashed when my motorcycle broke down while on the highway at high speeds. Then, last night while walking home, I got hit on my left side by a pick-up truck. By the time I found my glasses and got off the ground I could barely see the tail lights. No broken bones. Just banged up and sore. Limped my ass home and walked right back to work the next day (today). My point is this, if you are determined to get somewhere in life, no force can stop you. Yes it may shake you up or hurt like hell, but it's your choice whether or not those obstacles stop you. Push through it. Get comfortable being uncomfortable. Don't look for what's easy. You have to walk through the adversity and absorb it in a healthy manner so that you come out of it stronger. And to the driver of that truck, "you are a shit human being". ---------------------------------------------------- #isittooearlyforahipreplacement ? #stilllimping#aesthetic#determined#obstacles#brushes#life#focus#strongsidetookthedayoff#becausemyleftsidehurtslikerealizingthereisnosushileft#closecall#leaveamessage
By far the absolute most challenging part of my design career has been learning AutoCAD. When in school I went to the bathroom twice in one quarter and sat in a bathroom stall crying because of how overwhelmed I felt 🙈😂 LOTS has happened between then and now, besides 7 years. Today at work I got to design a lighting plan over the architectural plan - all by myself - IN, AutoCAD. Ta-dah!!! 😁 P.S. When I took this picture I still wasn’t finished...for you handful of designer friends who understand lighting 🧐 Anyway, the point is I’m having a blast now that I know what I’m doing! 💃🏻 #overcoming#obstacles | #interiordesign#autocad | #architecture |#construction#documents | #lighting#plan | #givingupisnotanoption
We feared to get on the green lantern with my girl. We embraced it and we just went for it. Life is full of obstacles but if you don’t face them head on and keep moving forward you’ll just end up at the same place you started and the spiral affect starts to take place or as would call it ground hog day will continue and go like a mary go around. Embrace your fears as everything will be ok.
The more you want it and harder you push, the more obstacles will disrupt your path. Working hard and figuring out ways to get thru those obstacles develop character, and that’s just as important as achieving the goal you are striving for, because you will not get what you want staying the same person you are now, and the obstacles are there to sculpt you into that masterpiece you are striving for.
Obstacles will not stop, you will simply get better at navigating around them...and at some points know they are going to pop up and avoid them altogether...that comes with experience!!
Never give up.
Did you get your body moving today? No? Why not? Is that really an excuse?
I have a million excuses to prevent me from getting off my but and working out
•I don’t have time •I have cleaning I should do
•I have work I should do
•I’m tired •I have a screaming baby
The list goes on, however my fiancé and I have made it a goal to get back into shape after a long nine months of pregnancy and we both have 20 different excuses to keep us from reaching that goal. However we simply don’t let them.
We pushed through our exhaustion (and found the workout actually easier and more energizing than we thought) and then when it came time to do our yoga and meditation Max here decided to have a fit. So we just took a break, made sure all of his needs were taken care of and then modified to make our obstacles work with us. So I took my screaming baby and had a nice cuddle session while we meditated.
Don’t let your excuses stop you, think about if they are legitimate or not and if they are use them to your advantage! -
Day 140 of #thegratitudeproject - Today was a fantastic day with so many things that I am #gratefultodayfor starting with seeing a rainbow on my way to work! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a rainbow in the winter... I also stumbled across this quote, “There is no challenge more challenging than the challenge to improve yourself” - author unknown. How true is that? Which made me realize how thankful I am for people that challenge me to be better than I was yesterday. My boss presented me with an opportunity that had it been presented to me a few years ago, I would have laughed at and turned down. Today I see it as a challenge and an opportunity to grow and learn something about myself and am excited by the prospect. How often do we look at those opportunities and let fear drive our answer? *
I'm really into the universe giving us signs, we just have to look for them.
I'm surrounded by an amazing group of mom bosses. We live province(s) away from each other. But they are constantly running beside me. Pushing me to do better, dream bigger!
When I was at the mall on the weekend I came across a few items that reminded me of a few special ladies. A great reminder that even though they aren't with me physically, they are always around me 💗
The kind that brings strength + wisdom
Comes from shifting
From the Inside ~ Out
But how + where to begin?
Honestly + quietly
Eyes wide open
Honoring what’s there
With compassion + understanding.
Know that it all
naturally + beautifully, when it’s time.
Trust 🙏 -JZ
