Monday Morning Mindset

This would be such a cliché if it weren’t true… This world needs so so much more love. Wouldn’t a Monday start perfectly, if you knew you started it’s travels? You can’t ever tell who will need it or who’s life it will touch. That wripple spreds far and wide.

With Love and Light,

I Found My Way

©️2019Nova

In the darkest of places, the dead of night, and the heaviest days of depression, voices would speak to me.

Some were angry. Some were insecure. Others were whispers, ever so softly, that I’d question my own truths.

I knew the road was going to be challenging, full of bumps, twists, and turns. I knew, though, that it was a one way street. Forward!

Occasionally, pothole tripped me up. Some of my choices sucked! I blew chances or passed by opportunities to grow.

But, today… I’m here.

I’m now.

I found my way 🍁🍃🧡💚

Emotionally Triggered

©️2019Nova

Excellent article called, How to Find Balance When You’re Emotionally Triggered , about how to work through those emotions and successfully move forward!!! A for certain, must read!!!

First step to preventing is identifying your Cause!!

This is HUGE!! It may be the most uncomfortable part of the process… because a cause means pain, hurt, embarrassment, suppression, memories… lots of dark and dark junk inside you that’s still… STILL affecting your life, mind, and relationships.

Take some time, as much as you need… and identify what triggers you into anxiety? Depression? Manic Bipolar Spells? Seizures? As you begin breaking down the tangled web, you’ll realize it doesn’t look so scary… because there are actual answers and solutions. There are actual tangible goals that CAN be accomplished in achieving a healthier you.

I want to encourage you to write your journey down! Please don’t feel obligated to share it with anyone. It’s a method that allows you to reflect on how far you’ve come, what habits and patterns are developing, what needs critiqued. It’s your story, and only yours to walk.

I found this in the article linked to this post. It’s a piece of wisdom I will be applying to my own life. I hope it provides you with the same restored sense of control as it did for me.

May you be at peace with yourself tonight.

Namastè 🙏🏼

Your Mission Statement

©️2019Nova

Moreso in the last decade, organizations, such a schools, have begun a new tradition: identifying their ” mission statement”. Why? It provides

  1. A goal to accomplish.
  2. Unity among everyone within the organization.
  3. A sense of direction, coupled with encouragement.
  4. Reason for valuable skills, such as endurance, hard work, and confidence.
  5. Path to find should one fall astray.

This statement is strong, something that brings each within together, with all the rest. Students learn teamwork.

What about here on WordPress? Or for your life, on a personal level? What’s your Mission Statement?

I never thought about it before, honestly. Writing one seems like a great idea though, for many reasons.

In the next couple of days, consider these words and your passions. What would you say is your Mission Statement?

Be Brave

©️2019Nova


Never fear silence and failure for it’s only at the bottom that we have only one direction left to go. It’s the path that requires most resilience and resistance, discipline and dedication. Facing silence deafens our self sabotage lies. Facing failure destroys our beliefs of incapabilities.

Fandango’s Provocative Question

©️2019Nova

You can find all the details to his thought provoking post HERE🙂

His question: What are the 3 biggest challenges in your country right now? If you’re not Up-to-date on the news, you can respond on a personal level.

I don’t follow the news much; however, one doesn’t need to in order to see big issues in my country.

#1. Racism has been and forever will be the biggest challenge. Sadly, it’s the easiest one to fix. No motherfucker is better than the next. We all are immortal and we all hurt. One day we all are going to die. The ones who are remembered choose to live life with intention and a long term purpose.

#2. Gun violence, unfortunately, has crept it’s way up under the wing of issue 1. I don’t understand why the world feels shooting is going to solve problems. It’s everywhere though. Just last week, right outside a local public library, here in Cleveland, a man shot another man over some weed. The victim didn’t survive. He was 19.

#3. Poverty is the third biggest issue. Again, I’m starting to believe this is a global issue, but I don’t understand why. There’s more empty houses in the United States than there are homeless individuals??!!! It makes no sense. There’s been reports in the last few years where laws and restrictions have been placed about what can be done with outdated food or overstock.

It seems that alittle more love and kindness can solve all kinds of problems… Or maybe I’m just nieve.

Working On Us – Week 6

Namasté
©️2019Nova

This is my interpretation of Beckie’s Mental Mess, weekly “Working on Us” prompt. You can read more about it here🙂

She posted a few questions, as well as a picture (or two). Same as she does every week.

This week I was struggling to choose between the two photos, so I’m going to do the first.

IMAGE #1:

I immediately thought, on that’s simple… Depression is dark and the tree is signifying the way out. The more I stared at it, something deeper happened.

The blackened area is nearly impossible to navigate. That’s what depression feels like. There’s no light, no sense of direction. The darkened area is also enclosed. There’s endless darkness; and it feels like it’s going to swallow us up. There’s no hope, no way out, no running from it, no avoiding it…

It’s then, that depression leads to in bed all day. It leads to no showers for days, little appetite, all that is colorless, dingy, gloomy, and powerless. Our depression doesn’t remove what we have. It merely dims the light around it, with grief, lies, and black.

It takes deliberate persistence to refind that mustard seed of hope. It’s always been there; it’ll always be there. The tree is our roots, the center that keeps us grounded. It’s the truths that shine, despite circumstances.

This was a refreshing reminder that our circumstances don’t remove roots of our true selves.

“Working on Us” Week #4

Every Thursday, Beckie, from Beckie’s Mental Mess, blogs about the dangerously increasing issue of mental health. She includes a few questions and an image, encouraging participants to write of that which sparks inspiration. You can check out last week’s submittions by clicking the link above.

I am usually drawn to the images in the prompt. This week follows suite.

Caged

The darkness fell upon her,

Just as the sunset faded to night.

She feared these hours, most.

The voices would soon, resonate,

The secrets of her past, horrors of

Her life, and lies about her character.

Quiet Whispers, subtle and familiar,

The haunting familiarity of endless hours.

Her mistakes visited, stared her in the face.

Anxiety attacked every inch of her weakening confidence.

Insecurities surfaced, breaking her down.

The night brought her storms,

Caging her into solitude, fearful of judgement.

She struggled with facing society, functioning normally,

And do so while sensing judgement from every passerby.

Until, one day, she declared, “Enough!”

She spread her wings

And broke free.

If nothing else, would you take time to simply give someone undivided attention? Would you actively listen to someone so he/she feels heard? It’s all the individual wants sometimes… It’s easy to do… It’s a kind gesture… And it’s worth everything to the recipient and free from you.

Listen to Me!

Tuesday Greetings

©️2019Nova

Good Morning Wonderful People 😀

It’s been a few days since I’ve posted. I’ve been reevaluating my life and future since this recent big change. It scary, slightly, because I felt my sense of direction has been removed. In a way, it has. Change rearranges our lives… And introduces us to new opportunities.

I had such a message sent to me yesterday, that’s inspired me to write a love story.

” If I ever saw an angel, it was in your eyes, for this I will sweep you off your feet and make God regrethe left an angel behind.”

Maybe if I do this, I’ll feel some healing. I’ll know someone has the love they deserve, even then some. LoL, does that make sense to anyone else?

Ok, my girls and I are off to do laundry and back out to the creek! 🙂

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Perfect afternoon:

Weather is warm, but cool. The sun feels fantastic! There’s not a cloud in the sky.

I’m by myself, able to sleep and watch tv, window shop and relax without much stress.

The park is busy but not so much where I couldn’t find a place to sit. The city skyline is amazing.

I’m in such peace. I’m so thankful!

Fabulous blog post & excellent therapeutic blog site 🌅🧡

When people come to therapy, they’re often consumed by an almost-visible string of old injuries – a hypercritical parent, a missed opportunity, a horrible breakup. And, when I point out to them that they’ve got some past pain stuck on their shoe, their reaction is almost universally the same: “I’ve been trying to understand why…

Tuesday Thoughts

©️2019Nova

This is powerful huh?!

Good Morning ~ Happy Tuesday! I’m sipping my coffee ( Seattle’s Best Port Blend is my favorite!!)

This image really caught my attention! My fears are just as aggressive and dangerously inhibiting as these alligators! I’m sure you can relate.

Thankfully, when we recognize the alligators in the swamp, we can hold on to faith and hope to keep us. I personally believe I would literally lose my mind if not for my faith.

What are these ideas anyway?

Hope is believing in what can’t be seen.

Faith is believing the unseen to come to being!

They’re might might ideas… and they’re for everyone. Spiritual, religious, atheist or whatever.

If we all practiced putting hope in situations and faith into ourselves, I know we’d build self confidence and overcome. I know we’d be victorious and feel proud.

Maybe it’s worth a try? Maybe the possibility is worth another chance? I know you’re worth having faith. I know you’re worth keeping hope!

A Time 4 Healing

©️2019Nova

The universal alignment showed me this as soon as I opened Pinterest. Is it a sign? I’d like to believe so. The saying goes,

” It’s always darkest before the dawn.”

So this evening, as I say farwell to one of the hardest weekends I’ve been through, I look forward to these coming days of healing.

How about all of you? Does anyone feel a sense of transition in the midst? Anyone feel a sense of change in a situation? I pray that healing patches up all the hurt you carry. I pray that you recognize the light shining and allow yourself the new opportunities your future is meant to have.

Namastè Sweet Souls

Friday Feels

©️2019Nova

Picture courtesy of Pinterest

She woke this morning, her phone resonating his ringtone. He sent her a sweet kiss emoji face and a thoughtful text that’d assist her with improving her future. Those little gestures warm the dark places in her heart.. The places where self doubt and pain feast.. When others, those who are biologically related, dismiss her without a blink.

She was thankful that she felt the warmth, because the unchained heart is that of healing.

The girls were able to sleep in. The previous day was exhausting; and they went to bed much later than usual. It was a stressful start to their Thursday; but, they made it through. By afternoon, momma was feeling much more like herself, and needed to get a few tasks finished.

(Here’s the arrangement, for the moment)

Once the coffee was made (oh the yummiest smooth blend of Deliciousness!), she jumped on the tasks of her phone. The extra effort, walking, clipping coupons, taking surveys, scanning barcodes, has been well worth it when she’s needed to rewards. In addition to such tasks, she spent time adding some positivity to social media. There’s to much negativity.

The list of To Do is a mile high :

Dishes need done.

Laundry needs washed.

Floors need mopped.

There’s home improvement projects to finish.

Right now, though, the breeze is blowing and the temperature perfectly comfortable. The girls are content and occupied. So much feels so good right now…

And for that she is abundantly thankful!
