Hi, there lovelies  Happy and Blessed Sunday to all of you beautiful souls.

Something about Sundays reverberates quiet reflection for me. For some it is a day of worship, for others, it just screams fun in the sun. If you are lucky you have the day off from work. I remember two years of working Sundays, for me that was just so disrespectful lol but hey one must pay the bills, feed the family and also my mild shopping addiction.  Whatever your Sunday entails; how about you ask yourself today, What can I do to make life better for me? Be totally selfish. You deserve it. Somehow our souls always have the answers, we know what needs to be done but yet we often times feel guilty about saying no or maybe just disappearing for a few hours for a recharge. Take a few minutes today to do something that brings you joy. Absolutely no excuses. Even if it is just buying yourself an ice cream cone and pretending that you are a toddler again with not a care in this world. Simply reflect on this past week and what made it great, even if it wasn’t so great to use your imagination it can lead you to some wonderful places. As usual, I leave you with one of my poems. Hopefully, it inspires you, sparks some food for thought or simply let it be a few seconds to escape from it all.

Life can be messy 

You have to choose your battles wisely

Are you going to walk around with a weight on your shoulders?

No wonder you are tired 

Worry does make the air so thick and heavy 

It can become stifling, crippling, gripping you so tightly that your forget t breathe 

In any situation you have three options :

Stress about it, Accept it or if you just can’t deal then carry on smartly 

No need for revenge, resentment or  regret 

We have no space to encourage and foster that bad energy 

Work on your own shit 

Don’t  watch others are doing 

Work on where you place your focus 

Sometimes you trip, you most definitely will fall 

No shame in faltering as long as you get back up again 

Be brave enough to choose yourself 

Pick your battles, Keep your glow up 

In this life you need to choose your battles wisely

If it does not bring you peace then it isn’t for you 

Put one foot in front of the other, let it go, move on from the darkness 

Sometimes you just need to say to hell with it and walk away 

Pick your battles, know your worth and carry on smartly

Set Yourself Free : Take A Deep Breath And Let It Go

let it go and let it glow

 

 

Some days we get so wound up and bent out of shape about things. Things are not going our way or so we think.  Someone was rude and put us in a pissy mood.  The rain poured, you got dumped, the wax lady messed up your eyebrows (maybe that would be a tragedy). All things we have absolutely no control over. 

 In life there are celebrations and triumphs and then well sometimes there is stuff that literally makes you feel like shit. Think about it though, what did your fret or complain about yesterday? Is it still relevant today? Was it something you could change? If not you already have the answer right there. Let It Go. If it does not bring you peace let it go.

Let’s consider how quickly time is flying I mean life is literally passing us by. I swear it was just Christmas wasn’t it? How do you want to spend this life .? In a constant state of worry, regret, guilt, anxiety?  As my therapist told me, I call her my therapist she is really a soul sister ”Tachira you got this one life.   Get out of your head. It isn’t that serious. Let it Go! 

Whatever you have lost will be replaced by something better. Whatever is seemingly without a solution will be solvedIt is always working out in your favour; even when it does not seem that way. So have a drinkeat some cake, binge-watch a show, go to the beach, ravish your lover, hug your mama, cry, drop an f-bomb or several whatever it takes to get you in a good place. 

This one life is what we were given to live joyfully, passionately. It may be a mess sometimes but it’s your mess.  I firmly believe there is a flip side a bright side, a lesson in everything. Take a deep breath, laugh it off, cry it out; whatever you do. Just let all of the bullshit go.  So I wrote this one for anyone who feels stuck or heavy laden. Remember you can get through anything. You are a badass. You are beautiful and blessed, way too awesome to be stressed. Stay in your magic. Give your soul a break and let it go.

happiness is just a thought away bajezen

 

I let go of the fucks and set myself free
Disregard the chatter of your opinions of me
Let the tension dissipate
As I can finally breathe
No longer defined by your insignificant boundaries
I am what I am
Repeat after me I am what I am
Declare it boldly
The energy of an entire universe flows through me
Unshakeable, fierce you can’t mess with me
Celebrate what you are
Seize the power of the present
Let go of the fucks and set yourself free.

Sunday Soul- Food : Expressing Gratitude In Trying Times

sunday soul food bajezen

Thanksgiving is typically associated with expressing gratitude. I believe we do not need a season to be grateful. Life can sometimes be like a dark cloud hanging over our heads. Those days are not pleasant but are an absolute necessity in life.On gloomy days we can find some of our best inspiration.

Hard times teach us to be strong and to keep trying. We can be surrounded by the darkest of nights and somehow we manage to step forward into the unknown guided only by our faith. Be grateful for the moments that test you they will teach you patience.Your problems teach you how to be ingenious and cm up with solutions. There is nothing in life that you can not overcome. There is no yin without yang, no light without darkness. The next time you are going through a trying period; remember it won’t last forever and there is always something to be grateful for. You are doing your best and that really is all that matters.

Have a Wonderful day and remember to express gratitude to someone special in your life 🙂

 

What are you grateful for today? What have you learned from the tough times in your life?
