Growth 

Hello,

   This past week, I celebrated my birthday. I celebrate my birthday for a full week. I believe that your birthday is not “just another day.” Your birthday is a gift. You e been gifted with another year of life and that should be celebrated. It was a great day to do some self-reflection. I realized that I’ve come a long way. I’m not as critical of myself and I’m way more balanced than I was a year ago. I’m a lot more patient with myself and less judgmental of my emotions.  I’m not perfect, of course but I think recognizing my growth is a step in the right direction towards my purpose. 

  It might not be your birthday but maybe you need some self-reflection. When was the last time you were kind to yourself? The last time you were sad, angry, or upset did you judge yourself or acknowledge that you are a human being who has emotions? Moving forward, lets both take a vow that we’ll choose to be a lot kinder to ourselves.

What Inspires You?

Hello!

    I just got back from attending a Bachelorette party in Miami and had an awesome time. I had forgotten how much I miss living in an environment that is so rich with culture. In Miami, the culture is in the food, music, and the way people dress, and talk. I started to realize how inspired I felt and wondered when was the last time I felt that inspired. I really missed having that inspiration. Before I started to go down that negative path of thinking, I started to think about the resources I have now that could inspire me. There are so many times we are waiting for a place or someone to inspire us but we have to realize that instead of waiting, we have the power to inspire ourselves. Don’t get me wrong, I think drawing inspiration from people and places is very important but there are so many other things we can be inspired by. It could be the sunset, sunrise, your loved ones or yourself. Together, lets make a habit of taking control over what inspires us. Feel free to tell me something’s that inspire you in the comments.
