Surrender to the moment. Just let it be. Whatever it is. Don’t force it. Don’t judge it. Don’t fear it. Just feel it. Accept it. Just be it. Just Live.
Sometimes I long for simple days. The days when all I had to do was concern myself with what I wanted to eat for lunch. Just maybe I miss being a toddler. I envy my daughter sometimes, such a carefree unbridled bundle of energy. Some days as much as I hate to admit it; life is synonymous with overwhelm. We take on everything. We take on far too much until we feel like we have the weight of the entire Universe on our shoulders. It is safe to say sometimes I think this adulting business can miss me. I just want to be like a toddler and run around in my underwear and do whatever my little heart desires.
The bills are due and you are sitting there thinking about tomorrow and all of the things that you have to do. I don’t know about you but I am sick of to do lists. Yes, they keep us organised but they also keep us busy. So busy that we forget that we were not created to do stuff all the time. We were created to be joyful and carefree and to just simply be.
Anyone out there ever had an anxiety attack? I really do not know how to describe it. The walls are closing in. You are trying your best to keep shit together.Keep it all together. I am that kind of woman. I want to do it all and I want to do it all alone. Of course, I know this is not logical but as much as we resist we are all affected by the pressures of daily life at some point. When I get anxious, I literally forget to breathe. I think most of my anxiousness is brought on by my endless need for mental to-do lists. Things are not how I want them to be or maybe I have so many things I “must do”. My mind is not present and I am trying to live oh so many moments at once.
All the trivial things you worry about can make u manic.What are you doing? Living for next week next month next year? Or are you beating yourself up for something you did or did not do last year? We often forget that all we ever really have is now. Have you ever been overwhelmed? Truly overwhelmed? During these periods of overwhelm so many mixed emotions can arise. None of them, at least in my case are ever anything good. Self-doubt, fear, shame they all come crashing down like thunderstorms. Even for the strong ones, it can be too much to bear. I strongly believe in the immensely beautiful power of words ;so I came up with five affirmations that can help you reset and refocus your mind when you are overwhelmed. We all have those days when we feel like the world is against us.
Sometimes you just need a reminder to think happy thoughts and JUST BREATHE.
We all have those days when we forget how awesome we are. Do not place your value in the hands of those who do not appreciate you You are a STAR. Don’t you ever forget it . Nip those feelings of unworthiness in the bud with this affirmation.
As one of my good friends said just today as much self -love you have there are things that happen that will shake you ,that will sting a little.We are after all perfectly imperfectly.

Here we are in February or the month of love as it is typically called. Single or taken there will always be one individual that you can always rely on and that is yourself. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in fulfilling the needs of others that we forget ourselves. When was the last time you did something nice for yourself, you know just because? Do you take time to go within and celebrate your beauty and all that you have to offer this world? Today and every day I urge you to focus on yourself. Know that you are worthy, special and loved. Here are five simple mantras that serve as a reminder of your divine greatness.
I Am Enough
One of the simplest affirmations and one of the most effective .Self acceptance is the key to happiness. Know this; you lack nothing. You are were not created to be mediocre. Embrace all of your quirks and imperfections know that they make you the unique and wonderful soul that you are.
I am Strong, I am Capable, I Got This Covered
Don’t view obstacles, setbacks, and rejection as negative. They were all designed to make you better, stronger and more versatile. Nothing affirms your fierceness quite like achieving a dream or getting over something that you once viewed as insurmountable. It may take a day, a year or even ten . You are capable of achieving it all. Make goals, manifest and most importantly take action. Nothing ventured. Nothing gained. The only failure is in playing it safe all the time and not trying anything new.
I Am Worthy Of All The Good Things Life Has To Offer
Love, happiness, and joy exist for all of us. Don’t buy into the notion that only a certain type of individual deserves abundance or fulfillment. No matter how you look, your net worth, your beliefs; we are all special. We all deserve to live how we want to. Opinions as always are irrelevant. Your life, your rules. Fear and doubt should never hold you back from manifesting the reality you crave.
I Love Myself Unconditionally
I love you. How often do you say this to yourself? Flatter yourself. Write yourself a love letter. Look in the mirror smile and say I love you. Make a list of all the things you appreciate about yourself. Pin it to your mirror. Keep it in your journal. Commit it to memory. Read it often. You are fabulous. Don’t you ever forget it .
I Trust My Intuition And My Journey
How often we get caught up in the comparison game. It leaves you feeling left behind and like you are less than. You are exactly where you need to be. Make peace with your past so it does not ruin your present. Don’t watch what others are doing it will only distract you from achieving what you want to. Think about it do you really want to be like everyone else? How boring would that be? Put it all into to perspective Look at how far you have come. Work on making yourself better than you were yesterday.
On the bad days, it is difficult to see the rainbow in the dark skies. Just remember to find ways to inject positivity into your life every day. Small consistent efforts often lead to big gains. Love and Blessings Tachi
