The Gratitude Chain – Join Me!

6 May

Image

Today, let us be grateful for the little things. I am grateful for the sunshine, for the cool breeze, for clean water, and for a tasty cup of coffee this morning. I am grateful for my job that gives me plenty of income; for my doctoral program that expands my mind and opens doors for me; for the unconditional love of my husband. I feel truly blessed having found the field that I enjoy and for having a purpose in life.

Now, it is your turn! What are some of the little (or big) things you are thankful for? Please leave a comment below. Let’s keep this grateful energy flowing! 🙂

Image

Yes, you are. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Image

Peace of mind. That is all you really need, no?…

Image

I am radiating some positive vibes this morning. Can you feel them? 🙂

Image

Love yourself, cherish yourself, take good care of yourself, listen to yourself, appreciate yourself.

I couldn’t have put it better myself! By taking that first step, you are already ahead of everyone else, who is not taking that step.

Attitude is everything!

4 May

I am currently readng the book titled Life’s Greatest Lessons by Hal Urban. What an amazing read! The book is soulful, clear, and unpretentious. Yesterday I read a Chapter on attitude. How attitude is the most important key to living a full life… How with the right attitude you can move mountains and introduce great change into your life and the lives of others.

Needless to say, I was armed with a highlighted to help me remember these wise words and apply them to myself. Then I was off on Pinterest searching for more inspiration, and I’d like to share that with you:

Feeling better….

10 Mar

For the past three weeks I have been feeling very out of sorts, both mentally and physically. I have been trying to resolve some problems with mom (the eternal pain in my neck) and couldn’t do it…. I think I need to give her a bit more time… She just refuses to talk to me – plain and simple. And I, on the other hand, just cannot wrap my head around how angry and bitter she can be. She can avoid you for months, even years. It is a painful topic that usually gets me out of my good mood.

I am trying to accept the way she is. Trying.

Apart from that, I have been working hard in my professional life. I love my job and I love being a part of my doctoral program. I am super self disciplined and stay on top of all of my assignments. I think discipline is key when you are going to grad school. It only seems unmanageable if you do it all at once. I break it up. For instance, on Saturday I do a little higher ed, then stats. Then on Sunday I do both of my stats courses (Seton Hall and Berkeley).

I am also starting to slowly go back to my workout routine- hot yoga on weekends and strength training at the gym during the week. Today I have over fulfilled my 30 minutes quota by another 30 minutes. Yay me 🙂

Lastly, I have been going to SoShimSa for my weekly meditation session – extended sitting, for pros, like me 😉

Please send your positive energy so that I can continue with all that is good. Thank you for reading!

Proud to Be Me

22 Sep

It is Saturday night, not even 9pm. I am in the bedroom, reflecting on the week and the weekend.

Albeit very busy, the past week has been amazing. I felt accomplished, fulfilled, sought after, needed, and valued. I felt an expert. I felt that I was in the flow.

I have spent my time exercising, learning new things, making a difference, celebrating my hubby’s promotion, reflecting, spending time with friends, listening to motivational cd’s from Success Magazine, and being still. I have also stuck to my 4am routine and have never felt better… Today, however, I slept in until 8am. I felt my body needed that rest so I have turned over and continued watching the insides of my eye lids for a little while longer. I have also spent some time reading my book.

When I look back and see how much I have accomplished for the past week, I feel proud. Proud for being motivated to live my best life. Proud to spend my time on things that matters the most for me. Proud for appreciating myself for who I am. Proud to at least try to connect to my higher self and live in accordance with my highest life values. Proud to have ambitious goals and work slowly and meticulously towards them. Proud to be practicing self love and self care, every day.
