Hey my lovelies, hope you all are well and having a great week! I’m so pleased to be back in this space – one we both share. Honestly, my return has been a long time coming; however, it’s been one thing then another that has brought me where we’re now at. Nonetheless, I’m happy I finally have arrived. Ps; I hope y’all missed me! *Smirks* Did you notice the blog makeover? What do you think hunny? *smiles* This feels good. I feel good.
Onto today’s post, shall we? Whilst life has progressed me over the past year, there are three things I did learn to hold dearly and surely will encourage anyone and everyone to maintain this year and perhaps, make a mantra for life.
- Protect Your Peace: Oh my, I can’t emphasise this one enough. Anything that costs you your peace of mind is way too expensive – that boy, career or whatever it might be – let it go…or rest! If it feels unhealthy, it probably is! Peace is a constant state of mind free from anxiety, negativity and any need for comparison which inevitably diminishes your ability to feel – you. Choose to focus on what’s positive, set boundaries if you must, spend time with people that fuel you positively and stay away from whatever depletes you.
- Prioritise Your Mental Health: How you think will determine how you feel, which also will have an effect on how you act. I think the first step to achieving this is being honest with oneself – get to know you and understand what your strengths and weaknesses are. What makes you tick? Never go overboard that to prove anything to anyone, not even yourself. Have regular reflective moments, keep a journal, take breaks from things that strain or drain you. Above all, learn to say no. ‘No’ is equally a honest answer as ‘yes’ is.
- Pursue That Goal or Ambition: Talk is cheap, so let’s go beyond that; allow your actions to fuel your purpose. Learn to invest in yourself, learn to do things yourself. A year or ten from now, make sure you can say that you chose your life, you didn’t settle for it.
As essential as the above are, I very much understand they don’t come by easily. So with my hands in yours, let’s do this together, each step at a time.
Be Right Back,
