Happy Monday Loves! To start the week off proper, I’m sharing my Mantra of the week as well as Daily Productivity Printables to help jumpstart your productive & satisfying week!

M a n t r a :

You Didn’t Come This Far to Only Come This Far

This mantra is a great reminder of how far we have come. By waking up every morning and repeating this mantra, you remind yourself of all the success that you have had in your life and are ready to tackle the day. It makes you realize that if we were to quit, as we all have a tendency to do from time to time, how much we would actually be giving up.

New Beginnings + My Mantra …

It’s interesting how the seasons and weather can play an integral role in our moods and overall happiness.  As I’m entering this new season and approaching my 30th birthday, I’ve been having thoughts that I need a reboot, refresh, or something that will get me back into feeling truly like myself while continuing my pursuit of happiness.  Living my best life and knowing that I’m working towards being brave, conquering my fears and trusting the process is an absolute must.

When Spring Cleaning leads to Self-Reflection

As I was spring cleaning this past weekend,  I revisited old journals and noticed that I wrote down dreams, aspirations and so many things to have completed by my 30th, some were completed while others never came to pass.  So, naturally, I panicked, thinking why haven’t these ideas been executed? am I not as ambitious as I once was? and what’s getting in the way of me truly living my full potential?  The thing is, life just happened, but it is up to me to ensure I am in full control of the things that I can control. Although change is constant, taking the small steps daily to instill a routine of progression and work towards the things to execute goals cant be something that gets placed on the back burner.

Note to Self

Know yourself, Don’t compare

Don’t overthink; everything is & everything isn’t

Allow daily affirmations to be your guide

Do what makes you happy, nothing more, nothing less

Don’t beat yourself up, just trust the process 

 I literally live my life based upon feels, not facts.  I love the feeling of smiling, being happy and inspired, and I will do whatever it takes to keep me in that state of mind.

Self Analysis

The only competition that I should have is Me vs Me.  Growth is the biggest picture and I cannot grow if im comparing myself to others, and not being true to myself.

Ever heard the saying, ” The only person standing in the way of you, is you”?

I never wanted to admit it, but I can honestly say, I got in the way of what I wanted to be and where I wanted to go. The good news, its never too late to face my fears and conquer everything that I set out to conquer.  Its all in the mindset and disposition.

Sometimes we don’t know our goals or even our fears until we list or say them out loud

 I had to ask myself …

What will it take to conquer you?

How are you holding you back?

Am I too comfortable?

What can I do or strive to accomplish that really scares me but will ultimately push me forward?

What do I really want in life?

Why haven’t I gotten there yet?

What are my biggest fears?

Once I answered these questions, I realized, at this moment in time, I have a pretty dope life and my goals are even more dope.  I can truly say that I have learned ALOT about myself during my 20’s and now is the chapter of executing everything that I want.

My Mantra..

Whatever you lay your eyes upon, is yours

 

The beginning of every new season is always a great time to re-center ourselves and create new goals to accomplish.

I’d love to hear your goals, tips and steps while I embark on this new and improved pursuit of happiness!

Saturday Feels

Early Saturday mornings are usually reserved for solitude. My solitude essentials consist of my linen candle, white roses, Diddy Pandora station, a tabula rasa (Latin phrase often translated as “blank slate”) and a little dancing in between epiphanies.

WHY IS “ME TIME ” SO PARAMOUNT?

Its self love and allows the time to fully emerge and focus on self.  It’s ok to be a little selfish in this department.  As much as I love waking up to the sounds and views of the city, it doesn’t hurt to pull down my blackout curtains, change my phone settings to “Do Not Disturb” and dive into my goals, visions and accomplishments for an hour or two.

I have compiled a list of 5 reasons why self-love is the best love below:

1.REBOOT YOUR THOUGHTS AND UNWIND

Although Tinashe’s “Too On” is the groove, its not always the best approach when it comes to your brain.  Constantly being “on” doesn’t give your brain the time to rest and revitalize. Try yoga, reading, or setting time aside for a nap in the park.  Enjoy the silence.

2. HELPS IMPROVE CONCENTRATION AND INCREASES PRODUCTIVITY

As you remove yourself from the distractions and interruptions of the world (good or bad), you are able to concentrate and become more productive with executing your thoughts or things that you have put on the back burner.

3.DISCOVER YOURSELF AND FIND YOUR OWN VOICE

When in a group setting whether at work, or weekend coffee talks, people are more likely to agree or go along with someone who shares similar views. Utilize the “me time” for self-evaluation. A simple approach, Exercise the 5 W’s: Who are you? What do you stand for/What is your purpose? When do you want to execute those goals? Where are you in life/where do you want to be in life? And the Whys of your world.

4.CAN ENHANCE THE QUALITY OF YOUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS

By spending time with yourself and gaining a better understanding of who you are, it really puts everything in perspective.  From who you choose t surround yourself with to how you, not others, want to spend your valuable time.

5. ALLOWS TIME TO THINK CLEARLY AND WORK THROUGH PROBLEMS MORE EFFECTIVELY

Although it can be challenging when you have so much incoming information i.e. instagram feeds, emails, and texts messages, it is time to unplug.  Deep thought and clarity can ignite creativity and increases productivity.  It is time to walk away from the never-ending checklist, breathe and listen to your thoughts.

Solitude is very important and so necessary.  Be a better you and indulge in a little me time, you wont regret it.

NEW YEAR, SAME ME, JUST A LITTLE BIT BETTER THIS TIME AROUND

 

 

Hello Loves, and Happy New Year! For many, the first day of a new year marks limitless possibilities.  Suddenly the time feels right to  to open the new planner to the first blank page and begin jotting down new routines, goals and the things that will be better for us this year.  I know it sounds so cliche saying ” New Year, New Me” , but everyone needs a refresher, its necessary to reflect, rediscover and reinvent oneself.

 

/,rēinˈvent/

verb. change (something) so much that it appears to be entirely new.

Given the definition, Re-inventing yourself does not mean completely losing yourself and creating someone you’re not, it’s simply embracing your new, new.  The concept of the re-invention is embracing yourself, reflecting on who you are and what you would like to change in order to better your self, your life and the atmosphere that you create for yourself.

How to Re-invent yourself

My goals are simply put,  a continuation of  Project Perfect (Read Here) .

Learn a new skill

A common question followed by “What is your name ” is “What do you do” .  The answer that is given is how you perceive yourself as well as how others will perceive you.  Do you name your profession or what you aspire to be?  If you name your profession, are you living your dream ? If so great, you’re on the right track.  If your profession is not your dream, what are you doing to execute your goals and make things happen?  It’s time to learn a new skill, and if you have one, its time to perfect it.  When learning a new skill or even perfecting it , you gain knowledge and learn more about yourself which is a great refresher for your path of goals.

Reinvent your Personality

Well, not completely, only the personality traits that are not serving you well.  Im sure everyone, including me, thinks that their personality is so bomb, but in all reality there are things that can  be constructed and we all could make a short list of what those things could be.  The good part? we created it, so we can modify it.

Create an alter ego

As crazy as this sounds, I do it, and it actually works.  Do you know of a celebrity, movie, book or musician that just takes you to a limitless place of motivation?  Thats where you should go, use that as an alter ego.  It doesn’t make you obsessed or weird, it allows you to achieve the goal for that moment.  For example, If I want to be fierce, I think all thing all things Beyonce, If I want the more bold approach, I channel my inner  Rihanna.  The goal is not to try to be that person, but to ask yourself ” What would they do to make this goal work and be successful” .  It helps to bring out the better person in yourself.Not into it ? No worries you can always think about yourself, and the things that accentuate or magnify the authentic you.

Re-Invent your Habits

We all have habits, and the more habits you alter, the more you change.  Could I drink water instead of wine? For sure ! Would it make me a different person ? Absolutely! (I’d probably shed a few pounds in the process) Hold on to the good habits of course, but the ones you have to second guess, they might need a quick little tune up .

Re-Invent your attitude

Think of someone you know that has a positive attitude, now think of someone that holds a negative attitude.  They are two different people, right?   A positive person is very different from a negative, or pessimistic, one. Everything is perceived differently, the emotions, reaction and they simply show up in the world differently.  Think about your goals and who you want to be.  If you are negative, its ok, reinvent yourself to become more positive.

Level up

Ever heard the term Gamification?  In this situation it is simply  applying game elements to non-game situations.  A game consists of a certain number of levels, when you “win”, you go to the next level.  Treat life the same way.  You don’t have to put your life all in one huge unattainable goal, break it down into levels, and stay focused to work through the building blocks.  You can do this with your career path, weight loss, finances etc. There are always levels to everything.

Step outside of your comfort zone

IF you are comfortable, chances are, you have accepted where you are, and your life is on a daily repeat. The farther away you step from your comfort zone, the more you’ll change.  It can be scary at times, but it is usually worth it.  Think about it, would you want to be in the same place you were last year? The worst feeling is the feeling of being stagnant and  not reaching your full potential.  Its time to do something that scares you.

Question yourself

Carl Sagan  once said “There are naive questions, tedious questions, ill-phrased questions, questions put after inadequate self-criticism. But every question is a cry to understand the world. There is no such thing as a dumb question.” .

  • Ask yourself: How can I create the next version of myself?
  • Create possibilities or alternatives to begin moving toward this new version of yourself
  • Select the best ideas you come up with.
  • Sample and test –test out your ideas and make adjustments based on the outcomes you achieve
  • Continue prototyping, testing, and making adjustments until you’re happy with the result

I hope you enjoyed the Re-invention segment, please feel free to comment below !
