where i am: may 2019

I’m not going to lie, I’ve been struggling to write this month’s update and wanted to post it on Friday, but it took until today for the words to come. I am a generally happy and optimistic person and the last two weeks I haven’t felt like myself. Nothing in my life has changed, but all of a sudden it seemed like I couldn’t summon any of the hope + joy I normally feel. Luckily, I have the self-awareness to realize what was happening and the tools to deal with it. And today I feel a little better. I know I’m not out of the woods yet, but I feel hopeful (yay!) that things are looking up.

law of attraction: scarcity mentality

There’s this thing called Scarcity Mentality and I hate it because it breeds fear. It tells you that there’s only so much of something and that if someone else has what you want, there’s less of it available for you. If someone else has success, there’s less for you.

I tried to keep going when things weren’t flowing. So here’s how I deal with my “bad” days.

when to nail down the rug

Our front door is unreasonably snug against the floor. As in every time you opened the door, the rug would move with door. It literally drove me batty. This went on for several months. I bought the thinnest mat I could find, but the madness continued. How was anyone supposed to wipe their feet! I don’t want to be stuck on the same thoughts every day unless they are happy, healthy and productive. Cleaning up the nuisance thoughts like “what should I do with that rug” or “I really need to touch up that trim” is an easy and relieving way to make room for new, more productive thoughts.

following joy can change your life: here's how

I swear the smallest changes can make the biggest difference. Last year I committed myself to alignment time in the morning – taking time to do things like meditating, reading or listening to podcasts that make me the best version of myself to tackle the day ahead. I simply woke up and thought about what it was that would bring me the most joy.
