Wisdom Wednesday: Those Small Victories!

Tiny but mighty.

Sometimes we need to step back and take a moment to reflect on those little wins rather than focusing on the big ones that we are aiming for but have not accomplished.

Wisdom Wednesday: It’s Not You; It’s Your Journey

People are dropping like proverbial files. Those that you were close to before, you all somehow grew apart.

Things are changing. Your present is changing. You are changing. You are growing. You are continuing on your journey.

With every point in our life, we will be challenged in order to grow. There will be many points in our life when we feel a shift. The energy around and within us is preparing for grow. We take a new form. A new shape. You no longer fit into the mold of your former self.

Wisdom Wednesday: I Commend You

To my earthly warriors, I commend you.
I applaud you for facing your battles with war paint and shields head on.
Never does your situation outwardly reflect your stance.

You may feel ready to throw in the towel. You may feel that no one can possibly understand the battles that you face. 
But realize, Warrior, that you’ve faced many and have prevailed. Yes, they may have been stones thrown in your path, but remember, those are also used for stepping.

And just as the flower looks to the sun for nourishment and strength, others may be looking to you.

Stay strong, Warrior! You are powerful beyond measure.

Nothing in this life comes easy. N.O.T.H.I.N.G.

If anyone told you that it does, they are not your friend since they lied to you — and they are misguided.

Everything that we do will require work. It will require effort. It will require patience. It will require stamina. It will require faith.

Often, we get caught up in what we want to do and achieve and we forget that we have to work our way up to it. Some of the things that we think are off our path are actually preparing us for what we are to achieve. Think of it like the quizzes before the final exam. The quizzes are short bursts of knowledge testing that prepares our mind to succeed on the final exam.

Wisdom Wednesday: Worry Not, Warrior

There is that word again: worry.

Worry is not our friend but seems to accompany us more than we’d like.

Too often, work, family, bills, experiences, trials, and challenges allows worry to show up. It tries to ingrain itself into our psyche, our spirit, and our body. It can make us tired and feel like we are carrying an extra 300 pounds on us. It steals our sleep. It creates bags beneath our eyes. It ruins our appetite. It saddens us. It tries to weaken us.
