Hey wonderful ladies,
It’s been a good little minute since my last post. You could say I’ve been MIA. What have I been up to? Well I’ve been around, working long hours, going through writers block, and feeling uninspired. But I’m back and I’m better! I’m regaining my drive. Patience is not my strong suit. I felt as though I should have been getting a better response to my writing. I am learning that it takes time and the focus should be on owning my craft rather than recognition. Through that realization I have embarked on a journey to holistic living and self love. The two go hand in hand. I find that when you pay more attention to what goes in/on your body you develop a deeper appreciation for yourself. Know your worth! I alway say you can’t help others until you help yourself first. As I go through my holistic journey, I am focusing on 3 major areas: mind, body, and soul.
Mind-Meditation has become a staple in my morning and nightly routine. Being self aware is very important. I handle situations differently when I have mental clarity. Less stress more progress. I am becoming more discipline. I have a schedule to adhere to. Exercise, cooking, meditation, and a little tv watching all need to take place in a short time frame before or after work.
Body– I have always eaten pretty decent but now I am taking my diet very seriously. More raw clean eating and absolutly no processed foods. I eat organic as much as I can. I will slowly work towards becoming a pescetarian but for right now I’m taking baby steps lol but that’s only half the battle. when it comes to paying close attention our exterior we all know beauty products may be applied topically but they get absorbed into the skin and eventually the blood stream. It was Hard coming to this decision but if I am going to give 110% I had to go all the way. I have made the switch to only using all natural, non toxic, paraben free cosmetics. This includes makeup, nail polish, face, body, and hair products. The thought of giving way or trashing ALL my stuff was a little overwhelming but now I have a reason to shop and re up on a few things. With a little research I have a growing list of beauty brands who cater to the all natural consumer. In the end my skin will thank me.
Soul– This is where everything comes together and the Self love starts to kick in. I am becoming a better woman from the inside out. All that I do is for me and no one else. Everyday is a “Me” day. I want to look to myself for validation instead of others. I believe that the universe rewards good behavior. I am learning to let go and and let God. I pray often and show appreciation for all my blessings.
So with that being said bare with me while I get my life and navigate through this new Journey. I will not be posting too much on here until i’m ready to present new works but you can follow me on twitter and instagram as I document my new holistic lifestyle. Lets all strive to glow inside and out, because everyday could be wonderful.
