Start where you are!

quote

Today is the last Monday of 2015 and 2016 will be here in a few days! During this time many of us are planning our New Year Resolutions.

NewYearsResolutions_main_0

Many await the New Year to change those bad habits or embark on something new. The number one resolution is always to lose weight, get healthy and in shape and by February or March, those resolutions die. Even I have fallen into this resolution on more than one occasion. But this, I will follow through with anything I set out. This year I plan to live a year of intention!

intention-300x226

I plan to live on purpose and every goal I set will be done with intention. I don’t want to make resolutions that are a repeat from previous years and never completed. I do believe when living with intention those goals do come true because it’s not a fad… there is accountability attached and the goals are broken down into bit size chunks that make them more obtainable! Will you join me in living with intention?

Share what your list of intentions are for this new year and I dare you to go further with sharing what you are doing TODAY to ensure your goals come to past. Remember, you must start where you are. Rome wasn’t built in a day! But with dedication, accountability and INTENTION, your goals will be completed!

Are you in need of a coach that will help you get there? Well, look no further. I’m transparent… I’ve been where you are and I’ve overcome. I’ve coached many that are living a life with intention and I would love to coach you too!

Self-Love…Where Life Begins!

CHECK OUT BLOG POST FROM MY SISTER-SITE BLEND IN FOR WHAT?! ™  

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen reflecting back on life and remembering when I truly started to enjoy life, take risks and even succeed professionally, I realize the greatness of living began with first loving myself. I started enjoying every moment of my life when I first started enjoying every moment of me!

Life… the existence of you which could be a daring adventure and new learnings or somewhat mundane. The beauty of it all is that as an adult, YOU possess the power to create it, exactly as you envision it. This means no matter of the situations you’ve encountered as a child and the multiple versions of non-love, YOU can change all of this with one simple step of first LOVING YOURSELF!

WHAT IS SELF-LOVE YOU ASK?

To answer this question, let me first tell you what it is not. Self-love is NOT tied to an ego, validation from others, narcissism or vanity. Self-love requires you knowing the value of yourself. Self-love is appreciating your uniqueness and your unique gift you have to offer to the world. It is the “regard for one’s own well-being and happiness.” Self-love is also humbling and is not weighed down with societies thoughts or their best-friends thoughts. Self-love embraces all imperfections perfectly and will not allow anyone to devalue them in any way.

HOW DO YOU CAPTURE SELF-LOVE?OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Well the first step to this is to become accepting of who you are and what makes you uniquely you. In order to become accepting of those things, you must cancel out the things shared to you about you in the past and get to know yourself without the thoughts of others. When you get to know yourself, you start on the path of self-love. You begin to recognize who you are and then you can begin showing love to those things whether quirky, different, or consider flaws to other people.

Other steps to capture Self-Love are:

– Remove any guilt or shame of yourself

– Trust your intuition

– Get out your own way

– Remove toxic relationships and toxic people from your life

– Detox your mind and body

More steps along with those listed above can be found HERE.

THE BENEFIT OF SELF-LOVE:

It’s been stated “Self-love is the antidote for all self-destructive behaviors.” When you completely love yourself, you eliminate the self-destructive behavior. Self-love allows you to live in the present. It assist you in dealing with daily life knowing that there is no need to stress over anything. Self-love creates the feeling of “everything is going to be alright.” And above all, self-love reflects loving relationships. You will attract what you feel about yourself and give out to the world

Self-love will be your daily compass, your drive to your destiny and connection to something greater. Self-love is where life begins. If you are not there yet, connect to those who can help you obtain this. Start loving yourself and start living fully.

Monday Mixtape

Introducing Monday Mixtape!

Sharing songs that motivate you to move! An eclectic mix to help you as you move through your journey.

I am a lover of powerful uplifting music, and I found it can alter your mood in such a positive way. I decided I will share my Monday Mixtape each Monday in hopes of starting your week off strong to move through whatever is to come your way.

Dance like there is no one watching:-)

 

 

Please note these songs shared are in no particular order.

1. My get it moving in the morning jam… Let me clear my throat! – DJ Kool

No matter how long it’s been, when I hear this song I instantly start to move! It’s a classic that will always make me feel good.

2. Don’t Stop Believing – Journey

I love this song and it pushes me to continue to believe.

3. Welcome to the Good Life! – Kanye West ft. T-Pain

I go for mine… I got to shine 🙂

4. Push it – Salt-N-Pepa

“Salt-N-Pepa’s here and we’re in effect want you to push it good. Coolin’ by day then at night… working up a sweat!” LOL! I still know all the words. And here is another confession… I listen to the Salt-N-Pepa Pandora station faithfully during my drive to work. It gets me ready.

5. Don’t Stop ’til you get enough – THE ONE AND ONLY MJ

Now I will admit, Michael Jackson has many songs that will get you to move… this is just one of many I enjoy! He was so the man I wanted to marry when I was younger. I remember when the Michael Jackson experience came out I was so proud to beat my nieces and nephew on that game. I knew all the moves.

6. Countdown – Beyonce’

Just like MJ, Bey has MANY move your butt songs! I have a devoted workout playlist to my girl Beyonce’ in keeping with the theme to only post one on this list I went with Countdown. Favorite line: “Me and my boo, in my boo coup ridin’ all up in the black with his chick right beside him…”

7. Last Dance – Donna Sommer

Starts off smooth but then… 🙂

8. I’m coming out – Diana Ross

My ultimate theme song! HA! It debut the year I was born so it kind of makes sense.

9. Brave – Sara Bareilles

Such an uplifting song that I’ve played in my TGIM -Kisha’s Life Lessons on occasion. I LOVE THE WORDS SO MUCH! I swear every time I hear this song and I begin to dance like I’m Beyonce’, I shed tears of joy… every time!

10. Just Fine – MJB

This has such a great beat and “I wouldn’t change my life because my life is just fine” lyrics speak exactly to how I feel at this very moment.
