Reflecting on 2018 I asked myself what I was most proud of last year. Looking around in my mind I couldn’t find anything substantially rooted in the material that reflected an obvious accomplishment or even a token of some goal achieved (cuz umm honestly last year was not my year for goal setting, ya feelin me…) Anyway, the most beautiful answer came to me despite the nuclear panic in my mind. A little voice was brave enough to speak up and say, “I am proud of the friendships I have allowed myself to curate”.
I thought to myself “Damn girl! That’s some real depth! Good for you! That is so true!” Ha!
Although, some of these friendships have come and gone with the seasons (totally okay and normal). I think some are meant to be that way. Some have lasted a couple of decades and continue to grow. But the ones that matter most, no matter the time span, are in-explainable and leave a lasting impression.
It’s cheesy I know. But I don’t care. It’s the good stuff in life! Literally Gouda is one of my fav’s (hehe). Seriously though it can be really easy to dismiss quiet accomplishments that are not written in bold in your obituary, like getting that house or college degree, but they are just as important. Actually, I think the quiet little victories are more important but what do I know. lol
Keep your chin up darlings!
Friend: I really appreciate your friendship with all my “wrongs”.
Reply: We all have “wrongs”. Continue reading message if you’re in the mood for a positive rant… lol
It’s easy to get carried away feeling guilty when we aren’t operating at our best or when we fail at something. But the good news is each of us has a choice to try to move towards or away from the person we want to be every minute of everyday. And ALL of us fail and succeed at that every day. And we all have our own unique battles. And no one battle is better than the other. B/C it’s all subjective if that makes sense. And the battles we fight don’t define who we are and or our worthiness of friendship/love/and compassion. Neither do the things that happen to us b/c of the choices we make. So basically what I’m saying is keep your chin up and lover yourself and believe in yourself matter what! You will fail over and over, but you will also grow each time if you let yourself. Don’t waste your time being mad/upset/sorry for yourself (I know easier said than done cuz I do this shit all the time 😛 #workingonit). Those feelings don’t serve you. You can have the support of an army but it won’t do a damn thing for you if you don’t love yourself and believe in yourself. There is no reason to believe that you aren’t a powerful badass being. You just have to allow yourself to be 🙂
…end rant. &hearts ♥️
First let’s break it down.
L – Law
O – Of
A – Attraction
Due to the recent mass popularization of the topic by movies such as “The Secret”, the idea of what exactly LOA is has become a bit muddled and reduced to some magical process in which you just declare what you want to the universe and “BAM!” it’s there. Then again it is kind of magical by nature because we really don’t know at this point how to explain the powers at be behind this mystical process. Nor do we have a way to qualify any evidence in favor of it. So I am going to take a stab at explaining it from the perspective of someone who is open to the concept and looking to explore it.
What: The Law Of Attraction is basically the principle that like attracts like. However, it is referring to vibrational frequencies in terms of energy. Furthermore the vibrational frequencies relate specifically to emotions and feelings which in turn translate to our realities that we experience everyday… Wait Whaaaat! Yeah I know. Let me try again. Basically what I’m trying to say is that according to LOA you attract into your life and to yourself experiences that match the emotional frequency you are vibrating at. These emotional frequencies are activated by thoughts and beliefs that we choose to engage with on a day-to-day basis. Thoughts = Emotion = Create Our Reality. Or maybe its Emotion = Thoughts= Create Our Reality. Um that’s kind of a psychological chicken and egg situation that I really don’t want to get into here. You are welcome haha. But basically we create our realities based on the vibrations we practice and engage with errrday.
For example, if you feel and believe you are healthy, then in theory you would be attracting experiences that reflect the feeling and state of being healthy. If you feel and believe your life is filled with financial abundance then you most likely will attract experiences that reflect that state of being and continue to attract more experiences that yield financial abundance. Conversely the opposite is also true. If you feel you are lacking prosperity then you will be activating that vibration and therefore attracting more of the same into your experience. The key words here are believe and feel.
That’s basically all I’ve got right now and as far as my understanding of the topic goes. But I’m eager to explore this subject matter further and can’t wait to see what I discover. I think I’d like to give it a shot and a journey I would like to share with you all. So lets see how this goes shall we 🙂
Peace, Love, and Namaste,
If you are an older female feeling a bit insecure and bogged down by age old standards of acceptable age ranges for suitable men then do read on. This conversation was spurred on by this nagging insecurity that decided to break though after recently dating a younger guy. Prior to this I firmly stuck to my belief that love is love and age is just a number. And I still completely subscribe to this belief. However, it didn’t stop the societal chatter from breaking in and introducing an intermittent feeling of self-doubt. I hope the following conversation I had with my cousin and his perspective as a younger man dating an older woman will aid in making one thing clear… You SHOULD always always always do whatever the frack you feel like doing (as long as you’re not some psycho serial killer type) 🙂
The only thing left to do now is to go forth and be unapologetically you ❤
