REFLECTION WEEK 5
Updated: Aug 16
Hey Nomad Crew
This week definitely has been a weird week. I don't know why because I have been working for myself seven days straight and had no shifts at my part time job. Which allowed me to work more for myself. My feelings were mixed with the highs and lows of what I said my recent IG post but also, grateful for an amazing new opportunity that will be making an appearance in a couple of weeks for a Reflection post! Hint: it's a company that focuses on mindfulness, balance, reflection, and being grounded.
1. the moment I embrace my peace within and surrender the outcome is the moment that the universe can truly get to work
2. joy is the ultimate creator
3. the presence of the love will always cast out fear
"resilient, strong, and brave"
Be grateful for those people - friends and family, maybe a significant other as well if you have one - that understand you to the point they just get you. Get you in a way that you don't need to say anything. They can tell by the way you are acting or don't answer your phone for a certain amount of time. These are the types of people,e we need in our life when you suffer from panic, stress, anxiety, and depression disorders. Those friends and family members become your support system when you are feeling down, off, or just have been feeling busy (aka headless chicken). It doesn't matter the distance or the current circumstances, that one friend that knows you the best will still and always be there for you. And the friends were excited to see in the following weeks that now probably is going to be moved to next year. When it comes to timing, you can only plan for so much, plans may get moved around, some may get canceled, but play it ear with the rest. Play it by ear to see where it takes you because there be new and more exciting adventures ahead.
Q: How did your Monday play out? How is your schedule looking with everything going on?
"by being yourself, you bring happiness to others"
Take the time out of your day to get outside, get yourself a team and a little treat yo self item. To take a break from all the hustling you have been conquering. It's important to nourish your body and mindset. To take the necessary "treat yo self days" to check in with yourself. To see what seeds you have planted need the nourishment of attention to continue flourishing. Flourishing those planted seeds into the potential you want to see from them. Every seed you plant allows a growing part of your brand that you are designing along your journey. Your brand is who you are as a person, what your biz stands for, your lifestyle, what your interest are, etc.. Express your growth however you choose to, don't let others how something should be. Yes, you can listen to what they say but you have the final say in the end. Do you because this is your story.
Q: Are you taking those necessary treat yo self days?
"let go of all that no longer serves you"
When there are signs telling you to change course so the winds guide you to the port of the harbor. But you can be prepared if those winds change course again and you are sailing in a new direction back to the port of the safe harbor. Home is where the heart is. Follow your heart home. Yes, there will be detours, roadblocks, challenges, decisions, highs, lows, etc... you name it. Doesn't matter how long it takes and what you face. You will see and be home again. You can take the girl out of the small town but you can't take the small town out of the girl. Being from where you are and who raised you will always affect your look on life. Yes, we can change our views but there will be a small part that will always stick with us.
Q: Are you home or missing home?
"you are enough"
It's the little things and the consistent reminder we are on the right path of doing what we need to be doing. Clarity but balance. Distance but grounded. Calm but collected. Keep going because you can do this - you are on the right path. When you hit the roadblock of the daunting decision to continue down the right or left side. Because at the crossroads, you are at the center point. Right or left direction both will include mystery, victory, failure, new opportunity or experience, and so much more. But you have to make the final decision where you go from that center point road.
Song: Center point road by Thomas Rhett
You know you have made the right decision when there is peace in your heart.
Q: Is peace in your heart or is there still decisions to make?
"you are your own kind of reflection"
You have to patience with the progress you are making. You can't rush the timing of how things are supposed to turn out. It takes two to make something work.
Q: Are you having the patience for the things are taking time?
"you are safe"
When life throws you a curveball and man it's a big one - you have 2 choices fight or flight. When a curveball gets thrown your way. how will you deal with it? However, how will you choose to because if you don't it'll through a wrench in your plans.
When life puts you in tough situations, don't say "why me" instead say "try me"
Q: Is life throwing you a curveball right now? If so, how are you handling it?
"you are worthy of many things"
A long week of curveballs, highs of victories, lots of new opportunities, and lows to try again. The new week ahead is allowing you to open new doors of possibilities.
Q: Are you ready for the new week?
