You must own your peace,
You must coach your emotions,
You must lead your feelings,
You must happen to life instead of allowing life to happen to you.
You must guard your happiness,
own the key to your smile,
belong to the best version of you.
When you own you,
it doesn’t matter what life sends your way. You’ll always navigate yourself through it. #wateringyoursoul
What are you listening to, learning & loving these days? I want to hear! I am always amazed at the things I learn from you - from your favorite chapstick to who is still rocking their holiday decor these days, and frankly so much more! I'll start, if you promise to join in...
Listening: I have been listening to the book "An American Marriage" by Tayari Jones. I am almost done (no spoilers please!), but I cannot get enough of the characters Roy, Celestial and Andre. The story is heartbreaking and insightful, as it is seen through the eyes of all 3 characters. It is favorite style of book because each perspective yields a new truth, both valid and revealing.
Learning: I am learning that making time for self-reflection is critical. I have started to carve out 20 minutes to journal and decompress each day, bringing awareness to feelings that I may not realize I had been holding throughout the previous day and actively working to silence the negative self-talk. I am at 7 days and counting, but baby steps are still steps!
Loving: Every single one of you (and your chapstick recommendations)! I am blown away at the friendships that I have made in this community. You continue to show up, glow up and lift up! I am excited to keep learning with you and from you.
Now it's your turn, what are you listening to, learning & loving? I can't wait to hear!
8 days new. 💕 This year I want to capture less perfect posing and more capturing moments. The ones that make you feel something, the ones that tell a story, the ones that freeze just a teeny tiny bit of time, to remind us when we’ve forgotten. The beauty is in the moment. ❤️
