Rebekah  Borucki -BexLife

My list would not be complete without this channel. I remember one night my mind was feeling so full I could barely concentrate. Something just told me to try meditation and I ended up on this channel. She had me at bliss in four minutes. Don’t think you have the patience for meditation. Trust me if I can do it anyone can.  On this channel, she also covers exercise and total body health. Basically, it caters to your mind-body and spirit.

Stay Slaying Through All Of Life’s Seasons #makeyourownsunshine

make the best of life bajezen

.

A reason, A season, A lesson, A blessing. Everything in life falls into these four categories, sometimes we have a cocktail of them all because what would life be if we did not have a shake-up once in a while?
DO you believe in everything for a reason? Sometimes I have the unshakeable faith that everything will work out on other days I want to stay in bed and binge-watch my life away. How can we justify everything for a reason when the reasons seemingly make no sense. We are not here to judge life or fix it we are here to live it.  Sometimes all we can do just live; especially when we consider that most of it is out of our control.  We make mistakes.fall down, get up or just lie there. The reactions and your attitude really are all up to you.  The time is going to pass anyway so make the best of it. The most imperfect and dysfunctional moments often make the best stories. 

sunshine makes a desert bajezen

What season are you currently in? An endless winter, a hot summer burn? Or is it hurricane season with no sunshine in sight? Whatever experiences you are having at this moment  know that they are essential for your growth.  Without challenges, without loss, we would never learn how to appreciate anything at all. Everyone and everything that you encounter has something to teach you. You may not get the lesson right away but the pieces of the puzzle always fall into place somehow. One day you will just have one of those aha moments and you will go…so  that is why it happened that way. I had to go through this to get to this point. When you look back on all the things that made you sad, angry or crazy you will be stronger for it .

take the lesson bajezen

Remember if you aren’t learning you aren’t growing. Three years ago, after a fairly tumultuous relationship; I have to admit I was a sad and bitter mess. I looked in the mirror and literally wondered who was this staring back me. There had to be more to life than this pain because when you really and truly immerse yourself in another human being , the separation is so gut-wrenching.  We have all been through it. It literally feels like it bruises your soul. Thoughts of what if and blame and guilt and all those emotions that typically I really do not want to deal with. Today I can look back on it and accept the lesson . It is no longer a bitter nasty pill for me to swallow but it taught me resilience and how to forgive. ( I also do not feel like setting his stuff on fire anymore).It took me such a long time not to take the actions of others personally. People will act how they act and they do what they do.At the end of the day, we are all trying to do our best. My part in it all is not to retaliate or react. I refuse to let anything threaten my peace. Karma is a mirror and I want nothing but good things coming back at me. Not everything you lose is a loss, you take the experiences as opportunities for growth. Look at yourself today, right this every minute at how far you have come, how much you have been through and you are still standing and dare I say you are pretty awesome too!  Don’t get bitter, get better . Turn all of that fiery energy into something good. Make it work for you.

stronger than you could ever imagine bajezen

 

How do you view life? Is it a blessing or the bitch that stole your joy? Let’s put things in perspective with a simple checklist. Put your hand to your heart and feel it beating, are your breathing? Are you clothed?Are you loved? Then really you have all you need at this moment.Life is all about being in the now. Now is after all the only moment we have.  Make today a day of appreciation.  It can’t always be sunshine and rainbows but you can always find the strength and the wisdom to value all of the good that you have in your life. In a world full of dark clouds be a ray of sunshine. Some days you have to dig deep but always remain steadfast and find the light.  

If it does not fit don’t force it
Let it flow, set it free
In this life, you can never lose or fail
Just look within you will find everything you need
It is never to late to be reborn, reinvent, write a new story
Don’t fuel the fire of worry,
Your happiness was never meant to buried, snuffed out by these burdens
Life is a learning curve, a  work in progress don’t ignore the lessons
Regroup, reflect, shake it off
When you feel like giving up
Put on those big girl panties and as they say, try, try again.

Brighter Days Ahead .. Inspiration , Motivation and Feel Good Ish

 

Beautiful and Blessed
Too dope to be stressed
These ”problems ” do not define you
Tension
Anxiety
Frustration
These are not yours to carry
Those who think you are unworthy, that is all at them
Don’t let them determine your levels of happy
It may feel off-balance, out of whack
Shit may feel heavy
It is just a temporary test
A lesson learned
What you have lost cannot compare the bounty that is forthcoming
Better days are ahead
Just trust and believe.

The Journey Within

Six Motivational Tips For A Marvelous Monday Bajezen.Blog1 (2).png

Weighed down by burdens left unseen
They were never hers to carry why couldn’t she keep the slate clean
Trying to do it all like Supergirl
She could never win
Feeling like she was failing at life ready to throw the towel in
Giving away precious energy until it eroded her soul
It was all so heavy, it got too heavy holding on to the old familiar faces the things that brought her comfort but stabbed at her psyche
Dull and aching
She longed for a taste of a new life
Feeling trapped, caged,  a prisoner in her own skin
When did she become tethered
The lioness wanted to growl but all she could muster was a whimper
It was time to start over
Allow, accept, and release
Face it head on
She had forgotten her strength
Her inner goddess unamused
Clawing to break free from the mental chains
Somehow she conjured the strength to rediscover the magic buried deep inside
She dug deep, no more suffering, no more doubts she would no longer hide
Rediscovering her purpose
Redefining her goals, basking in the dysfunctional beauty of the moment she was in
She would grow to love herself again

List 2 things you have to be happy about?

I live in a winter free zone.

I have a safe and comfortable home. I am grateful that there are no wars being fought here.

 

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?

I used to collect rocks I found on the beach all of the time when I was younger. Now the only rocks I own are my crystals. They were specially chosen for my Sun Sign which is a Libra.

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?

I don’t think I am much of a hugger; then again I am an introvert we tend to want to run from human interaction 🙂 

 

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?

My inspiration was simple. As I heard the news of my next door neighbor’s passing; I was reminded that I should enjoy each moment. We are well aware that we must die; however, we never get used to hearing the news of someone’s passing. Don’t spend your moments being miserable. Appreciate every single second you are given.

An Agile Approach To Life

an agile approach bajezen

 

Life requires an agile approach. You have to be flexible and adaptable to maneuver those sharp turns and the rocky roads that you end up on sometimes. Change is like a river ever flowing. You will find yourself lost if you go against the tide.

happiness bajezen

Acceptance.

Always make peace with your current situation. Remember no situation is infinite. Open your mind to all possibilities. Being overly rigid will only break you down and leave you feeling defeated. Remember to always keep moving.

 

Gratitude.

Express gratitude for everything. No matter how simple. Oftentimes we have so much more than we realize because we are too busy focusing on what is missing instead of all the great things we have within our reach. Never lose sight of or take for granted all of the value that there is in your life.

 

gratitude bajezen

Individuality.

Embrace the quirky imperfect being that you are. You are enough. The world needs you; not some carbon copy or a cheap imitation of who the world pressures you to be. Do not be defined by your possessions, your social status or your appearance all of that in the grand scheme of things is quite frivolous really. Work on feeding your soul, getting to know yourself so well to a point where nothing can shake you. You are a divine being. It is difficult but just drown out all of that external noise.

Live and Do All Things With Love 

Some days it feels like we are merely existing as we are heavy laden with the hectic nature of modern-day life. Time is limited. There is fun to be had and memories to be made. Sometimes you just have to go with your gut. Do whatever your heart desires as long as it brings you happiness.It’s your story. No one has the right to tell you that you are doing it wrong . Screw the rules. There is no manual on how to experience life. Unpleasant moments and dubious decisions do not amount to a bad life. Don’t doubt yourself you are doing just fine.

purpose bajezen

 

Expand your mind.

Educate yourself. I am not just referring to studying here. Ask questions. Read. Explore. Do not just blindly follow what you have been told. Question the status quo. The world needs more independent thinkers. Immerse yourself in new cultures and unique experiences. When you learn more about others you will be less judgemental and more tolerant of someone who does not look, dress or act like you.

 

Your current situation is never your final destination.  

Dare to live a life bountiful full of peace, love, and hope. There won’t always be rainbows and sunshine but whenever you can, however, you can call in the good.

The Daily Prompt Loophole

The Daily Prompt Loophole Bajezen.Blog 1.png

The rules only seem not apply to some
Puzzling and frustrating are the inequities of this life
Some can find a loophole in any sticky situation
They just live to stir the pot and cause nothing but strife
The dream and the goal is the pursuit of equality
A celebration of what is fair and just
To live in world where only good flourishes and no one has to struggle to survive
Where kindness is automatic and we appreciate the value of every life
We live in faith and hope that one day the suffering will all be gone
It all started with dream and today the dream still lives on

Carve Out Your Own Reality

Add heading (29).png

Unsteady footing not sure where she wanted to go in this life
Doors slammed shut and no windows open
Honestly not a sense of relief in sight
Longing for a feeling, or  some dose of inspiration
Life it was blah and surely she was lacking motivation
Afraid to weave a new tale she was so stuck on the last
Reality bites when you live in the past

 

None of us are certain of the exact path that we take in this life. Tomorrow is never promised and that is proven every day. We may have another minute another hour who knows? Are you going to spend your precious moments living in the past or being present?  Are you living the life you want? Like right now at this very minute?

If the answer is no, then what are you waiting for?

We all have our demons and issues to deal with. You can look at some people and see that they wear their burdens on their faces. It’s like a cycle of constant negativity repeating all the things that are wrong with your life. Then some people wonder why things never seem to go right.
Keep calling in the negativity and rehashing the issues and you never ever really breathe any fresh air. The staleness of the past trials will always continue to stand in your way.

There comes a point where you have to examine yourself and really wade through some of the bullshit that you keep repeating. It never really leaves you if you never try to learn the lessons.  I choose to let go is my current mantra. Never let being caught up in your web of so-called problems leave you bitter. If you really take a moment ,  a real moment to go deep and embrace everything that you hold inside, you will let go or make peace with all of the shit that consumes you and eats you alive.

You have to make space for something new to come in. Circumstances are not the determinant of whether you love the life that you are living. You have to carve out your own reality; not just sit on your ass and take it as it comes. In most cases, all you need to do is allow accept and move on but us imperfect beings tend to hold on to things too long. We want what we can’t have or we refuse to adapt. As the song says the grass isn’t greener on the other side it’s greener under  you. 

BAJEZEN.BLOG (14).png

I know what it’s like to be stuck in a story you never intended to write. You just have to remember that it is a chapter, just one chapter and not let anything overtake your life.
You create your own reality. How do you perceive it? You are either your own best friend or your worst enemy.

Treat : A Soul’s Delight

treat bajezen.blog

 

 Searching for fulfillment in bags, shoes, and clothes she always came up empty
Always feeling less than whole she craved someone to love her completely
Searching, looking externally to be fulfilled 
Vacant, soulless what was the purpose of the mundanity?
The temporal was devoid of any divinity or was it?
Ravenous for a soulful  treat
To tantalize, mesmerize
To satiate the undying need for the extraordinary
To feel as wild and unbridled as the tempestuous seas
To be a masterpiece akin to all the colors of the rainbow
Hot passionate and robust
Refreshed energy, she finally dared to feel alive
She was everything it just took her a while to realize
She would bend but never break 
Nourish and delight her soul and live a life of her own design
Written By Tachira Wiltshire
