Self-Care is Not Optional

Don’t wait until you are burnt out or running on empty, before you make it a priority to take care of yourself. Anyone who has traveled by plane know that the attendant provides safety instructions to put on your oxygen mask on first, and then place the mask on the other person in the event of safety concerns. Yet, in our daily lives we place everything and everyone else as priority, and we do not address our basic needs and then wonder why we are angry, bitter, discouraged and depressed.

I challenge you to spend time with God first, take a moment to ponder on and take care of your personal needs, and then take care of everything and everyone else. Self care is not optional, it is necessary. (Matthew 6:33).

Practice Mindfulness

The practice of mindfulness doesn’t need to be complicated. When there is chaos around you, take a moment to check out mentally – by simply focusing on your breathing. This practice will cost you nothing but a little time, but the stress reduction will benefit your body, your soul and your mind.

Lessons to Learn from the Pandemic

Can you believe that we are approaching two years into the pandemic? Wow. Well, there are a few things that this challenging time can teach us. First of all, it is time to create a new normal (if you haven’t already). Secondly, with the life’s uncertainties we may need to shift our focus on being happy and content where we are, while we work towards what’s next. Lastly, with God on our side, we are strong enough to face whatever may come our way, even when we don’t feel like it.

What Matters

The life story you have written so far is important, however your story is still being written day by day. We tend to focus on what we have not done, please take a moment and show yourself some grace; forgive yourself. Learn from the lessons that life has taught you. You see, what matters the most is how you fill the remaining pages in your book of life. Turn the page. Begin a new chapter–Today.

A Clean Slate

Happy New Year and welcome to 2022! Let’s take this opportunity to begin again with a clean slate. Let’s take this opportunity to forgive ourselves for what we did not do last year and congratulate ourselves on what we accomplished, as well as the lessons that we learned. As we take this time to reflect, let us envision the life we want to live in 2022 and plan action steps to manifest what it is that we desire. We must give God something to bless.
