Happy Healthy November -20 Day Mental Health Challenge

mental health challenge bajezen

 

Hi there lovelies,
It has been a while since I have been in this space. These past few months have been a mishmash of all things crazy. Highs and lows and everything in between. I found myself feeling quite stressed, uninspired and literally wanting to take a nap until the year ends.
When I find myself feeling off-balance I always look for ways to get myself centered again because I am totally useless to those nearest and dearest to me when I am not functioning t my peak. Let’s face it none of us are.

We are fast approaching the end of the year; in my opinion the two busiest months of the entire year. I was so pleased when one of my sisters shared this Mental health Challenge on Facebook. I thought this is exactly what I need to add a little zen to my daily crazy.
Why not start November on a positive note and recharge, renew and restore your spirit. You would be totally surprised at how a few simple changes can boost your mood and outlook on life .. Also maybe several cups of coffee and affirmation tracks on repeat.

Everything Will Be Alright : Monslay Motivation

everything will be alright bajezen

 

Mondays are the beginning. No matter where we are in life we have a chance to begin again. When we go through those tough times we often forget how resilient we are. We often forget that there is hope as long as there is life. I write this for myself as much I write for others. The troubles pass, the days get easier. Never forget life is a gift. Never forget Life is beautiful.
You are a Divine creation and You are always loved.Click To Tweet

 

everything will be alright bajezen

 

This is your reminder that everything will be alright
The signs may say different but there is no need to fight
The process, the present circumstances may not be ideal
There is never a trial without a lesson, a blessing an opportunity to heal
This is your reminder that everything will be alright
It is just a moment, they always pass
Stay grounded in the present the upheaval never lasts
There is no need to fight the process,
You are on the path to progress just you wait and see
You may not like it, you may not love it but you are exactly where you need to be
Like the dragonfly, the transformation will be inspiring
Stay open to every possibility, these growing pains mean nothing
It is all going to come together just you wait and see
You may not love it, you may not like it but you are exactly where you need to be.

Sunday Soul Food Series : Yes You Can

sunday soulfood series yes you can bajezen

 

Hi there lovelies, Welcome to another instalment of the Sunday Soul Food Series. I don’t know about you guys but the past two months have been one emotional roller coaster ride. I blame the full moon and new moon being In Cancer. They are some deep and brooding souls. I have lost count of all of the times I have literally said I can’t this month.
Then common sense kicked in and I realised whatever I speak will manifest. If I think I can’t then guess what I want . Have you guys ever felt that way like you just can’t deal with all of the ”stuff ” that life throws at you sometimes? Everything becomes so difficult and burdensome and a downright chore. You start to develop a defeatist attitude like maybe I should just lie here and not complete another damn thing.
When you start to feel this way just consider these four thoughts before you start to utter another negative word or have another woe is me thought.

yes you can bajezen

It never is as hopeless as you think.

How do you react when faced with difficulties will always be the determinant of your level of satisfaction or success. We all have struggles, setbacks, hiccups. Think about it. Was there ever anything you ever went through that you did not grow through? The bad break up, the job loss, paying off those bills. It sometimes feels like it is taking a century but at the end of the day the situation does change and you overcome it. Have you ever been so damaged by anything that you went through that you did not survive another day? If you are reading this then chances are the answer is a bit fat NO. The next time you are feeling that you can’t, remember those times that you slew those dragons, wrestled with those demons and you still came out victorious. Those thoughts will give you the encouragement and that little injection of empowerment that you need to keep pushing through.

overcome obstacles bajezen

 

The problem is not the problem. It is your attitude about the problem that is the problem.

 

Yes, I meant to rhyme there. That heading sure is a mouthful. You essentially attract the energy that you put out. Fretting, fussing, cussing, frustration only attracts more things for you to get upset about . Be the one that looks for the solutions in times of crisis and not the one that runs and panics . The world isn’t ending the sky isn’t falling . What you envision as the outcome is what you will get . Try to focus your energy not on the size of the issue or the seemingly tragic outcome , instead focus on how you can and will overcome it .

Your brain gives you what you picture -Carrie GreenClick To Tweet

Life does not happen on your timetable.

 

So maybe you want this one thing and you sat and you pictured it and you worked hard and still no results. What now? Do you give up or keep going ? in life, nothing rarely ever happens exactly how or when we want it to. When you make peace with that simple yet sometimes quite difficult fact; then you are halfway on the path to your dreams. We all get frustrated. we all want what we want and we want it now. I personally want to work four-hour days and retire at 40 and sip margaritas while laying on exotic beaches. We all have our dreams and aspirations. You will get what you want or maybe not. You will get something better. Life has a way of giving us what we need. Hold that vision and trust the process.

trust the process bajezen

Sometimes when you think you can’t. You shouldn’t.

Have you ever had so much to do that you literally do not know where to start?  I am the type of person that procrastinates when I have a lot to do. After the procrastination then comes panic and me wondering what I was thinking I committed to all this ‘stuff’ in the first place. You really cannot be everything to everyone. You really cannot keep going and giving and doing like the energiser bunny. He has unlimited reserves, you do not. Next time you feel like you can’t. Examine where you place your energy What and who you give your attention to. Pay attention to your body, your emotions. Have you been taking care of yourself as you should?
Sometimes we just need to pause, declutter our mind, body and soul, Reevaluate our goals and most importantly; learn to say no to all the things that make us feel like crap. Just be with yourself. Recharge and rest. Always listen to your instincts they never ever lead you down the wrong path. Be kind to yourself always. Speak lovingly to and of yourself and turn that no I can’t into YES I WILL.

Thoughts become things
So what do you believe in?
Do you listen to that little nag in your head that says
”You can’t do it ”
or are you going to listen to that inner voice that screams
Everything that you wanted can be yours
You are doing your best.
I am going to win.

Five Simple Ways To Get That Summer Glow

It is officially summer. Well, to be honest, it is always summer here in Barbados. There are no seasons unless you count the hurricane season as a season. Around the months of June until August it just gets hotter. I mean so hot you just want to lie on the beach with a cocktail hot.
Today I decided to treat myself head to toe. My inner goddess is just screaming for her glow to be refreshed. During these hot months, we typically show a little more skin, cut loose and let’s be honest the sun takes a toll on our skin and our bodies.
Here are a few simple recipes you can use to get your glow up this summer.

Total hydration for that all over glow.

simple infused water ideas bajezen

When it gets hot ,  Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate. Nothing saps your energy and leaves you feeling as dull and listless as a dried coconut like lack of water. Infused waters are indeed nothing new. My go-to is lemon water. Lately, I love lemon and orange . It kind of reminds me of lemonade without the sweetness. If you do get bored with this combo you can always add some chia seeds, watermelon, mint anything that gives it a bit of a twist and can excite your palate a bit. Cut your fruits up and leave them with water in the fridge for four hours or overnight. Mix it up. Spice it up. Combine fruits and veggies whatever suits your fancy. Hydration is key to keep your body functioning at its peak. Since I am an island dweller I also love a good tall glass of coconut water 🙂

Am I the only one that has a love affair with coconut oil?
I used sea salt as I love the texture of it to slough off those dead skin cells. It also is such a great detoxifier. The result: baby soft hands and feet. Smooth and inviting.

Pick Me Up Body Scrub 

I do not know about you guys but just the smell of coffee gets me fired up. I think I may be an addict. Who really can go wrong with coffee in your cup and coffee in your shower. Coffee is not only a pick me up but it’s great for dry skin, cellulite and stretch marks. It will keep your bum perfectly polished for all of those hot summer bikini sessions. It also smells and feels great too. I love brown sugar for its coarser texture but the mixture is really up to you. You can add or subtract ingredients depending on your personal preference.

Detox Face Mask 

This is the recipe I use every Sunday as I lounge around with my cup of coffee. I have been using the Aztec healing clay for years now and I just love the results it gives. if you have not heard about it by now get yourself a jar. You won’t be disappointed. I just love the pulsing feeling it gives. I think I can literally feel it dragging the goop out of my pores.

Life Can Be Messy :Sunday SoulFood Series

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

 

sunday soulfood bajezen

 

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

Trust The Flow

trust the flow

 

When I was younger, I always saw endings as a tragedy
They induced panic, caused tears.

So dramatic I was
I always thought they were the end of me
As I grew older and mastered the skill of letting things go
I realised that faith would guide me
The things that fall away were only meant to be there for a moment
The disappointments, the rejections they do not define me
The pain , the upset the messy moments
They all come together to help you grow
So what if it is over? It was fun for the while

The time has come to let it go
Endings don’t have to be sad
It may have been good but better will come
Have faith, take  that leap
Welcome all possibilities with open arms
Let go and let it flow.

Fill Your Own Cup First

relentless self love

 

 

Sometimes, we all have our weak moments. You guys can relate I am sure, You know the ones where you get down on yourself because you think maybe, just maybe you are falling behind or your life is not going according to your best-laid plans. I came up with this one after a meditation. I totally love when inspiration hits me from nowhere.  This is a reminder for myself as well as anyone who needs it. You are a precious gift to this world. Never forget to .. Cherish yourself, take care of your inner needs and take exquisite care of yourself. 

relentless self love

 

You do not have to be defined by your experiences
You do not have to be tethered to your past
Take things one day at a time
Work on enjoying this moment
Take a deep breath
Feel your body fill with calm and contentment
Smile and believe, any moment,  this very moment can be your fresh start.

Start as many times as you need to
Be patient with yourself
Love yourself relentlessly
Your energy, your vibe your soul that is your wealth
Take time to unplug, decompress, chuck it all
to  just be and spend some time with yourself
You have the power to be whatever you want to be and not be defined externals 
Focus on you , fill your own damn cup for once
It is never selfish, only foolish not to pour all of the love you have into yourself

Sandcastles

sandcastles a poem about love bajezen.blog

 

It was fun for a while , those playful days in the sun
She thought he would be the one to always make her smile
Sand flowed through her fingers
She wanted to build something everlasting
Put her heart and soul into it
An unexpected wave came in and washed it all away
Tried her hardest to salvage the ruins
In the end he wouldn’t stay
Grains of love remained , stuck to heart and stinging her eyes
The remnants of their time together
Memories replaying in her mind
Some people are like sandcastles  
They aren’t meant to stay
You have fun , you cherish the moments
You build a masterpiece only to have it washed away
This is the story of love and life
You play with the fire and get burned 1000 times
Feelings cut you like a knife
This is the story of love and life
Everything is temporary
Not everything is meant to stay
You build a beautiful sandcastle only to have it washed away
