Practicing Gratitude in Style

Posted on: August 8, 2018

Start and end each day with a grateful, loving heart. Begin your days with positive thoughts. When you do, trust and believe all that good energy and good vibes that come your way. In my opinion, remaining calm and positive in any given situation, is the way we all should live life. It’s definitely easier said than done. But trying is half the battle, but we must learn to shake off the bad and seek the good. When you shift your negative thoughts, and remain positive in any given situation, you will see a shift in your mindset and overall perspective of life. Trust, believe and always have faith.  Practice gratitude daily and you will increase your energetic vibrational frequency. Focus on the positive, even when some days are harder than most. Set the tone, not just for your days but as a whole. Stand strong and always #hustleandheart. Gratitude is a powerful process of shifting your energy and bringing more of what you want into your life. Be grateful for what you already have and you will attract more good things.  We’re all fighting battles that many of us don’t know about–so be kind, be grateful always, and above all never lose faith and hope. No matter what we all are facing, we still must be grateful and thankful for the blessings of each and everyday. Keep the good vibes flowing!

Message from God: Just be You

Posted on: April 23, 2018

 

And out of nowhere, I hear God say to me, Just be you. Nothing else, I am in love with you, I am pleased with you. I felt overwhelmed by the realization that I am enough, just as I am…..

Sometimes, with the struggles of our daily lives and everything around us we get too “caught up” with trying to be something we aren’t and forget who we are along the way. The last couple of months, I have been struggling with so much. Trying to find the answers, trying to figure it all out. At times I felt like God and my faith abandoned me. I started to lose hope in a lot of things. I know we all have been lost, even seen a lot of dark times in our lives. Let me tell you, the struggle is real, and I mean that in all honesty. Life is never easy by no means. Life can be beautiful and challenging all at the same time. But, hey that’s life right?! Sometimes the strongest among us are the ones who smile through silent pain, cry behind closed doors, and fight battles we know nothing about. I know I let out a good cry here and there and that’s okay. Letting out a good cry here and there doesn’t make me weak, it makes me real and human. Even moreso open and honest with you all by telling you all this, but I like to keep it real and 100% with you always.

Sometimes, we need to take a breath and realize, we need to love ourselves wholeheartedly always.  At times, we can let society, the media, our circle of friends, colleagues, family whoever it is tell us what we need to be, who we should be and what we should be doing with our lives. No matter what anyone says, just be yourself. Don’t try to be something your not. Be authentically you. God created us to be unique individuals, and sometimes we need a reminder from time to time. We need to stop comparing ourselves to this person and that person and be comfortable with ourselves and who we are.

I know this is a constant struggle for all of us, myself included. Life isn’t always perfect. With social media ruling over us these days, there’s a constant need to strive for perfection. Just remember, looks can always be deceiving, and nothing is ever as perfect as it seems.  And that’s ok, don’t strive for perfection, try and work through your struggles, learn and grow from it. Add value to your life and purpose that is more fruitful beyond measure. It’s all about perception and what you believe is perfect and right for you. Just remember, you are beautiful, kind, loving, unique, intelligent, humble, and amazing just the way you are. Never forget that. I too, have to remind myself of this all the time, so trust me you’re not alone. I hope this will encourage and motivate us all to never lose sight of who we are and what is important. And if we do, it’s these little reminders and words of wisdom from the big man up above speaking to us always. God’s always on our side watching over us and guiding us along the way. Let’s never forget him, our faith and all he has to show and tell us. No one is you and that is your power.

 

I’ll end by saying, keep your faith. I know it may not seem like it now but listen theres a message in the word always.  This is my message to you today and always. Stay true to yourself, stay inspired, be empowered, have faith, never stop believing in yourself and never give up loves!!

Positive Vibes and Affirmations in Style

Posted on: March 19, 2018

Everyday make an effort and look at yourself in the mirror and give yourself a pep talk and tell yourself:

I am STRONG

I am CONFIDENT

I am BRAVE

I am BEAUTIFUL (HANDSOME) 

TODAY will be AMAZING

I BELIEVE in myself

YOU are CAPABLE of AMAZING things TODAY and ALWAYS
I LOVE myself and others and I BELIEVE in all good things

I BREATHE in POSITIVITY and EXHALE worry and doubt

I CAN DO THIS 

I GOT THIS 

I choose to be Grateful for all that I have.

I have Powers beyond my wildest dreams.

My Voice is valuable and my Opinion matters.

I am Not afraid to Feel my emotions.

Say it, repeat it, believe it and keep those positive vibes alive always. Even when things may be going wrong in your life. Change your mindset. Change your attitude. Change the way of how you see things. Change your perspective and see how things will unfold. As much as you can try and smile. I know it’s easier said than done at times. When you shift your way of thinking, you become more at ease, calm, collected and you and your soul will find inner and outer peace. This will give you a better outlook on how you view life. Be good to yourself and others always. Be a good soul, create, exude, and give out good energy always. Be and practice kindness always. Be optimistic.

Everyday is a chance to become a better version of yourself. Not to say you aren’t great already but theres always room for growth and improvement. I firmly believe that in life we can never stop learning, we can never stop growing and we can always find ways to better ourselves. In order to do that, it all starts in how we think. Everything is all about perspective and your mindset. Focus on the positive and change your thoughts into positive affirmations. When you do so this can change your overall sense of being and way of life. Create an urgency for positive thoughts always. I know times can be tough and its hard to think positive. But all you can do is try. As the saying goes, “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again….”  I believe in myself and I believe in you. Now it’s time for you to do the same. I challenge you do this the same. Remember to always have faith, stay positive, never give up and never stop believing in yourself.
