Getting Back To MEnimalism :)

It has been about 4 to 5 years of practicing minimalism, and it’s gotten a lot easier a long the ways. However, we all know that minimalism isn’t just about the materials, it is also about the non-materials that can bunch up into our lives and our minds. The people, our type of work, hobbies, foods, etc. I’ve been trying to get back to the basics of eliminating anything that no longer serves me. And also eliminating myself from anything that no longer needs my services . I remember having this feeling back in 2010/2011 and ended up getting rid of my FaceBook, this time going on for 7 years. I’ve decided to leave my social platforms for work/creativity. I feel the further I get away from it, the better I feel. The same feeling of not getting involved in other “toxic entertainments” like the news, or other TV programs. I am ready for a deep cleanse, and want to encourage everyone as well. It is time to get back to the basics, and appreciate the simplicity of our own lives. We need to make more time for what really matters with ourselves. Now, this is a personal challenge, and not to say everyone has to do it, but to at lease try it and give yourself a break from time to time. I believe in the importance of adding value to your life, and sometimes that means stepping back, so you can go forward.

So what is there to do with your time?

  • CREATE

Spark up your interest/creation by doing something fun.

  • APPRECIATE

What is going on in your life right now? Can you make changes to it? What can you do to show your appreciation?

  • Do Something New

What is something you’ve always wanted to try?

  • Relax and Enjoy

You don’t have to always find something to do. Sometimes doing nothing is all the enjoyment you need at that time.

Take little steps for bigger rewards. And know that it’s okay to be missing out sometimes, it is not the end of the world :).

Don’t You Ever Complain To Me,

again. Unless you plan to do something about it!

Nothing is more upsetting than listening to someone complain, but nothing’s changed…

They complain when something is wrong, hell they complain when something is right.

Is anyone ever satisfied?

And here I am complaining about others complaints. But instead, I prefer to use my restraints. 

I find it more powerful to take in what we can’t control, and turn into what we can. Ourselves….. It’s not the end of the world, but it is a shift that will change our world…

No one is ever ready, so get ready.

You complain about the same thing, nothing’s changed, and even you remained the same. You’re just as bad as the people you claim. Never feeling ashamed, but quick to have your hand out when there’s something else to obtain. What a shame. Things stay the same. The cycle recycle’s into another complaint. Nothing’s changed. Just another time, another day, but do you stay the same? 

The only thing we can change is ourselves, so spare me with the gossip or tell-all , about an everlasting downfall. I hear you, and I feel for you, but where is this all going? Will there be a solution to the issue that’s crawling?

Be mindful of what is happening, and make your life happen the way you want. 

Remember life is constantly changing, whether if we like it or not. But we can all try to do better ourselves, so we can live as happily as we want.

The choice is yours, so take your power back by doing something about it.

Choose greater, and complain less.

Yes the world is a mess, but that doesn’t mean you have to be 🙂

He Said He Loves Me…

He Said He Loves Me…

Of course he did. And maybe he thought he did.

What does love mean to you? Maybe that’s what it was all along, and maybe we were both loving each other wrong.

We loved differently………

He said he misses me. And maybe he does.

But on the other hand all of that missing was the feeling I don’t miss when we once was.

It’s too late for all of the that, so he can miss me with the bullcrap. 

He said I was right. And I knew he would say that. They always do.

But it was never about being right or wrong, it was about being true…all along.

All the things he says to me now, doesn’t even matter now…..

I’ve always thought that was funny. The similarities of one wanting something so badly back then, and all of the sudden now the other.

It’s too late for all of that, so he can tell me he loves me, he can tell me he misses me, and that I was right all along…None of those sayings matter at this point, especially when you could have said back then.

Maybe those feelings weren’t valid then as they are now, but so are mine. I thought, and I’ve said a lot, but after time apart, I realized that I was right, and where I am now is where I belong.

Too bad you had to learn this way, but what more can I say…

Inhale, I Exhale/Excel…

Inhale, I Exhale/Excel…

I Feel Too Much, so I’d rather do. And I can’t quite describe it, it’s like a rabbit stuck in a hole, and suddenly it hops right out of it. I must do, because if I don’t the feelings will subdue, and I refuse to lose. Oh my God, the feelings are becoming stronger, I have to do something, otherwise it’ll turn into a big bother. I have to allow these feelings to guide me, what is my purpose? What are you trying to advise me? Inhale, I Exhale, I’m learning to take it all in. Inhale, I Excel, I knew this would happen, my intuition is my ultimate captain. I learn to trust myself more by ignoring the distractions. They are just there to disssssstract, and I’m not here for all of that. Inhale, I Exhale, I’m feeling a little better. Sometimes the feelings become so intense, I feel as if I’m under the weather. I’m not. I’m just in my feelings, trying to sort things out, trying to get the their meanings. Inhale, I Excel. I refuse to hold myself back. Anyone who knows me, knows that, so why would you expect me to allow you to do that? Inhale, I Exhale. I love, and I forgive. Continuously. Life is like that sometimes, you breathe in, taking it for what it is. You breathe out, letting the lessons of life flow about. Inhale…. now Exhale/Excel it all out.

If You Only Knew…

If You Only Knew…

The love I have for you is so real, that it’s rare. I know, you sometimes feel a bit uneasy, intimidated even. But know that I love you, so there is nothing to fear. But what if there is? Would you be open to talk to me about it? Would you trust me enough to know that I care, and want what’s best for you. I love you, so don’t fear, just tell me how you really feel. I see how you look at me, I’m not a stranger, you and I are quite familiar. Different because of our own perception…. Have we failed to learn about one another as one and not as individuals? Because we are one, you and I. And you are not alone, ever. If you only knew the love I have for you is more than just a friend, a colleague, a lover, my fellow human. I root high for you, we can all win together. I know you can do this if you want, but you have to be open to love. If you only knew the love I have for you, maybe you wouldn’t judge. Is it too overwhelming for you? Let the overflow of my love carry along and release . Do you want it? Would you be able to handle it? 

Learn To Date Yourself (Be Your Own Boyfriend/Girlfriend)

Learn To Date Yourself (Be Your Own Boyfriend/Girlfriend)

I’ve been working on “my bad habits”, and one of them is to not go from one relationship to another. Instead, I’m learning to have a relationship with myself. It’s been awhile to be honest, and it makes me think how much I’ve lost myself being around the wrong people. You wouldn’t lose yourself around the right ones, so that’s why it is important to really learn about yourself, and this includes having a relationship with yourself, first….

Put YOUrself first. This means your priorities, feelings, morals, values, instincts, etc. Whatever is a part of you, shall come first before anyone else’s. Learn to separate that from others. Learn to accept that your responsibility is about YOU. Learn to be a little more selfish. This will eventually allow you to become selfless, when the time is right, and with the right people. Don’t go against the timing of your SelfLove, always have this on the top of your list. Your self love is the ultimate importance of your vision. The other day I posted on IG and explained how it is important to treat yourself, take yourself out, and really begin doing things that you enjoy, even if its alone. One of the other trainers, and myself, was talking about how there is this stigma of having to do things in the company of others, and how we need to change this type of mentality. Why do, why wait, why not? Why do we do this to ourselves? We miss out on opportunities because of the company of someone else. We need to be a bit more assertive to our needs, wants, desires, and we need to be in more control of how we want to approach these things. We only miss out because of ourselves. We don’t need to put that responsibility on someone else, and for what? 

This brings the point to learn to date yourself. Act as if you are the boyfriend/girlfriend of whom you desire, and treat yourself as so. Put that responsibility of being there emotionally, physically, mentally, to yourself. Put the responsibility of support, love, creativity, inspiration, and really motivate yourself as if you are not yourself, know what I mean… Learn about yourself as if you are really dating yourself, get to know yourself a little bit more. I’ve been doing this for almost a year now, and I love it. I’m learning so much about myself that I haven’t realized some of myself before. It is new, and a bit tricky, but keep practicing, and keep yourself busy. When you begin feeling discouraged, use that time to take a break. Unwind, unplug, undo, wherever you are, just unYOU yourself and take a timeout. We can’t expect to go on full speed all the time, and we have to take a break sometimes so we can charge. Just like our phones, you know. Learn to charge your batteries.

Do something different! When I feel like I’m in a funk, or feel discouraged, or maybe a bit overwhelmed, I’ll find something different to do, even if it doesn’t require much. Think of this as a time to go on an adventure. Walk at a new park, read a new book, take yourself out on a date to a place where you haven’t ate before. Or do nothing, and relax.

Give yourself time to really figure YOU out, this will take time, but actually take the time by applying a little more effort into yourself and well-being. You’ll learn more about yourself, and begin admiring others who share these commonalities. 

Practice, Patience, and Perseverance,

Stop Pretending!

Stop Pretending!

Let’s leave that in 2016, along with some other shit…

I’m seeing a lot of people in their feelings, and I’m sure it has a lot to do with some guilt or maybe some regrets from the year. 2016 has been a lot, and like the years prior, there’ll always be ups and downs, but what good is a resolution if you don’t have any intentions on really changing.

Stop pretending! This is one of the main problems a lot of of us have. We get so caught up in a situation, and sometimes lose ourselves. We need to be more mindful of our thoughts, as it will lead to our actions. Check in with yourself and ask yourself questions, don’t just act! People pretend so well that they believe their situation is ideal because maybe they have some admirers, or maybe they are too lazy to make the necessary changes. Funny thing is, sometimes they have the nerve to belittle the things you want to do with your life, although what you want is truly fulfilling. Don’t lose that focus. Don’t allow the “fakeness” rub off on you. Let them keep that “wannabe” happiness to themselves.

I don’t know about you, but it just makes me feel uncomfortable seeing and knowing things, yet others cannot or just refuse to see for themselves.

So let them, and continue to strive….without pretending of course! 😉

Real talk!
