New Year... New Practices

New Year... New Practices

Hey loves,

I know it's been over a year since I last posted.

So much has happened and my focus has been on other things. But I plan to blog more, although, lets just see how that goes... lol

This year I have been focusing on my health, fitness, and career. Been reading more self-help books, took a mediation class, and I've relaunched my workshop.

However, in the new year I want to refine myself. I want more discipline, flexibility, time, and peace.

Starting with sleeping and waking up earlier, limiting my cell phone and social media use, and committing to yoga.

Theses changes will help me to accomplish tasks better, as well as see things more clearly. Simply by revitalizing my current habits now.

The New Schedule (Trial Period):

Last night I went to bed at around 7:23 pm, woke up this morning at like 5:45 am, and began yoga about 6 am. 

I really like that I have more time in my day to accomplish things I really want to do. 

It is not even 8 am and I am blogging!

Right about now, I would be just waking up, still in bed wasting time on my phone before actually getting up to workout. 

I like this new schedule. I hope I can keep it up.

I am starting now, so that I can perfect it by the new year.

Well, I thank you for making time to read my post. 

But for now I must go. I am off to meditating, praying, reading, and starting my day.

Until next time,
-N

My Passion Year!!!

My Passion Year!!!


Today I say goodbye to 25.

The Passion Year: 26! 
Tomorrow I will say:
Hello to new growth.
Hello to new maturity levels.
Hello to new experiences.
Hello to new goals.
and Hello to the unknown.

As a growing woman and entering into my own personal new year. I want to thank God for the many blessings that were bestowed upon me. Without God, life would be a lot tougher and lonelier.

I am grateful for the life I have and for the people who are surrounded around me. I am filled with so much joy and love. 25 years on this earth has been a beautifully chaotic experience.

As I close out this year and enter another, I want to give myself lasting advice:

Live your amazing truth, enjoy the journey of life, don't be so hard on yourself, don't compare yourself to others, relax more, never give up, and remember that God got you, but also YOU got you!

TRUST THE EXPERIENCE!

HAPPY PASSION YEAR TO ME!!

Until Next Time!

7 Days...

7 Days...

HEY WORLD,
So yesterday made it the official last week of me being 25! That's right, Monday, October 30, 2017, I will be 26 years old. Man, I remember when I was just turning 21. That will be 25 years ago on Monday.
 WOW!

It's so surreal! It's both exciting and intimidating at the same time because I am maturing and growing. As well as becoming more responsible for myself and having to make even more adult decisions.

This is my last year on my parents insurance and once I turn 26 they are kicking me off. So I had to get my own and that was a bit of an adjustment. Although it wasn't too bad. Just had to make a lot of phone calls and holding. But no biggie. Just that now this is another responsibility that falls on me.  But it's not as bad as I thought it would be. All in all everything is going well. I feel like now is my season. Growth. Now is the time where everything is going to fall into place.

I am so grateful to get another year to do great things. I feel that 26 is a special year for me.

This is my passion year.

Even though I've already started living out my dreams, I am just going to go even harder. My path is a lot more clear now. I could always see the end results but I never saw how I've gotten there. The path was blurry so that I stumbled along the way. The Shaping Process. And now I see the journey clearer.

The light is shining bright on my path. 

The time now is to focus more on me and the path. I'm going to work on managing my stress levels better, meditate more, take more personal time when I feel over-whelmed, and take control of my mind. Peace will be my friend. 26 will be my peaceful dream come true year.

 That is my wish. 
Until Next Time,
-N

The Shaping Process...

The Shaping Process...

Growing up I heard the phrase, "You Have Time,"  and as an adult I still hear the same thing. However, I do not feel like I do. I am 25 turning 26 in a few weeks and I feel like life is just passing me by and I am trying to catch up and capture the beautiful moments. I hear "take it one day that at a time" and I do but I feel like I can be doing more. I want to enjoy the moments but I also want to make the most of them as well.
  
I Battle With Time...
Sometimes I feel like I have a lot of time and other times I feel very limited which leads me to worry, overthink, and/or allow the day to just go. Off and on I work on just doing or being in the moment but I struggle with it because I am an imperfect perfectionist.

"Everything Just Has To Be Aligned Right!"
 I worry about what I shouldn't and don't worry about what I should. However, I think about what I am not doing then worry about what I should do. I know I am a walking mental contradiction, lol.
I just worry about time!
I'm a work in progress. I am always working to better myself, to improve, to challenge myself and to work on ways to relax and live in the moment at the same time. Most days I succeed at it and other days I crumble. But you know that is apart of the process!

Trial and Error.
At-least I am trying and giving it my all. Even when I get overwhelmed or stuck I push myself to keep going. I do not stay down for long. I get up and keep trying and push myself until I win. I am not an easy giver upper.
I am a hard worker!
But in the midst of it all I have to sit down and appreciate the many accomplishments I have made. As well as remember to enjoy the ride of life and time.

I decided to write this blog post because I know some people may feel the way I do and I wanted to let you know that it is okay. Just remember that you are not alone. We all have struggles in our own way but we cannot let that distract us from the goal. Especially when it comes to where we may think we should be in life and how successful we should be at this very moment.
  The perspective I am writing from...
We just have to remember that life happens in seasons. It is not our season yet and we should take this time that we have to really live, laugh and love more. We will not get this time again. So enjoy the now and work towards the goal in the moment. Try not to over think or overwhelm yourself but really try to trust the process. Because lets say success comes, you have to be ready. And sometimes sacrifices have to be made, like time. So I'm pushing myself to enjoy time and the process more. And to stop overwhelming myself.

Trust the Process
Pursuing greatness takes time but it is worth it and fulfilling. The wait may be overwhelming but I know that I'll appreciate the results of success much more when time comes. Plus this time that I have now is preparing me for what is to come. With time I am becoming a stronger and wiser woman.
 This is the Shaping process.
WE GOT THIS!
Until Next Time,
-N
