When You Hit A Low In #Life, Know There Is Only One Way To Go… And That’s UP! #Living

What can I say about lows… πŸ€”

Those lows can be sneaky little devils… might not even know you’re going through it, until you discover you don’t like your own behavior.

Yikes!

Luckily, it’s an easy fix.

Ok, it’s not easy. It’s a real pain in the a**!

1. Let yourself be sad. You’re allowed to be sad. Sadness is a wonderful emotion that helps guide us through change.

2. Take responsibility for your part. We make mistakes. We are imperfect, but we learn and we improve.

Forgive yourself while you’re at it.

3. Get back on track with you. Reconnect with your core morals and values.

4. Next, you might need to set some boundaries so you can stay true to your morals and values.

5. You’ve given yourself the needed time.. Now, get up and move that body. Do some things that make you happy.

Give Yourself What You Most Want From Others #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

This Week’s Challenge:

Give yourself what you most want from others.

#WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

…Not necessarily talking about gifts, but that works too.

If you want love, love yourself.

If you want romance, create some romance–even if you’re alone.

If you want security, do what you have to do so you feel safe.

If you want attention, focus on you for a while.

There is always a way to give yourself what you want and need.

Spend Some Time Alone Doing What You Love To Do #WeeklyChallenge

This Weeks Challenge:

Spend some time alone doing what you love to do. #WeeklyChallenge

Time to focus on you a little. πŸ˜‹

~~~

From my Novels:

Like meditation, when my characters are able to shut out the noise around them and tap into the core of who they are, that’s when the magic happens. Goals become clearer. Saying no to others becomes easier. And saying yes to self becomes necessary.

~~~

Have a great week!

Make it better than last week.

Create A #To-Do List Based Around Your #Values

Today’s Challenge: Create a #to-do list based around your #values.

1. Take a look at your master to-do list.

  • If it’s like mine, it’s overwhelming

2. On a seperate sheet, write down your values.

  • Family and Friends
  • Shorty, my dog
  • Fitness
  • Career, Writing and Art
  • Love, Romance
  • Home, Clean and Organized
  • Time to myself (Yup, I’m an introvert)

3. Write down and underline each of your values as a page title.

  • I’ll have 7 pages

4. Transfer each to-do task to the proper value title page.

  • For example:

CAREER, WRITING AND ART

  • Buy paint
  • Take pics of finished art
  • Attach hanging wires
  • Decide which pieces will go in coffee shop
  • Etc.

5. Everyday make a new, short to-do list pulling the most important task(s) from each value page.

  • For example:

TODAY

  • 30 minutes treadmill 
  • Clean up house and load of laundry
  • Buy paint
  • Fix Amazon link and author page
  • Take shorty for a long walk
  • Return family/friends phone calls and texts
  • Etc.

Watch your task lists shrink and become manageable and even enjoyable because you’re staying true to your values. You’re saying YES to everything that is important to you.
