Purpose driven life

Good Morning!!!

 

Hope you’re having a beautiful day! There are so many reasons why you should. Before you say or even think of that as a false statement realize experiencing the best out of life is a state of mind. So… with that said, life is what ever you want to make it.

I tend to read a lot of self help books. I do this because I feel the need to work on myself. I’m not going to lie and say I have everything figured out sense reading these books; but they do help me to feel a lot better about myself and situations. They help me to see the world in someone else’s perspective. This in turn helps to boost my mood, which leads to me feeling uplifted and wanting to pass that feeling on. I say this because maybe you’re someone who wants or needs to feel uplifted, and this may be something you use to bring you a little bit closer to that.

There is so much you can do when you feel uplifted and free. For my followers who’ve been with me over the years (I appreciate you all immensely) you know I always say the way the world is constructed, we are slaves to the 1%ers. I’m not saying that in a way to make you feel sad, mad or helpless. I say this because most of us go to a job we hate and  trade our time for money everyday. When we could be just as privileged as our bosses or so many others who took a chance on their selves’.

If you are like some, you might be okay with working for someone else. That’s okay if you are. But if you’re like me, you crave to be in the center of everything great. Even if that means you have to experience some things that aren’t so great. 

Your journey is your own. Don’t get discouraged if the ones around you can’t see or understand your vision. Just remember it wasn’t given to them, it was given to you. 

Never doubt yourself, because you’re capable of doing things you’ve never even dreamed possible. 

Learn the ways of the world through trial and error, when ever possible. When you start living this way, your whole life doesn’t turn out to be a long list of woulda shoulda coulda’s. 

I get that many of us live in our heads. This is even more detrimental when you’re an introvert who suffers from social anxiety, like myself. Just remember these are obstacles that can be over come. You don’t have to sit and bathe in misery (unless you want too).

You control you’re destiny. Stop giving it away!!

Live and be Limitless.

Freedom is a mindset

What’s up Everyone?!!

I hope you all are doing well. There have been somethings that are changing everyday. Recently I found out schools are supposed to be opening again very soon. This wasn’t a concern for me for a long while now. But knowing we will be starting school really soon is kind of giving me anxiety. Mainly because I suffer from Agoraphobia.

I try to be normal, but I’ve been suffering from this for a very long time. I developed it when I was younger, do too having a tyrant as a Step-Father. In order to avoid his stares and disrespectful language I would remain in my room for days; only coming out to eat or go to the bathroom. All though this house belongs to my mother, I always felt in order not to be picked on or hurt I had to fit into the space I was given (figuratively). Growing up feeling like I was a burden caused me to fold under conflict. I found myself bending to meet other peoples expectations of me because I had been indirectly taught to bend like the air.

It’s something you learn to do when you’re a child. I’ve seen people talk about this time and time again. I think the term for it is “People Pleasure”. You become this way because you’ve had to learn how to maneuver around other peoples emotions. Then because of your developed need to please  others you have begun to loose yourself.

You may not realize it at the time, but the more often you neglect your own needs to meet the needs of someone else you’re loosing a piece of yourself. Trust me, I know. I’m 37yrs old and I have never made a big decision without input from those closest to me. As  a result life has been ‘SAFE’. We all know what that means (boring). 

I’m in ‘No’ way blaming anyone for the choices I’ve made, because in actuality they’re my choices. Many times I’ve used other peoples advice to justify how I felt or what I should do. So that if anything out of the way happened the full blame wouldn’t be only on my shoulders. But it’s time I stand firm in my decisions and stick to every and anything I start. If I don’t I fear I won’t make it in this world.

The other thing is; When it comes to fear I have it by the boatload. I really want to change the way I approach things, because I fear without changing I will forever be afraid to actually live. 

I have people telling me everyday how talented I am. I know I’m blessed to have the gifts I have. I’m sure I would have made it a long time ago if I did what I said I was gonna do, not only with what I’m comfortable doing. Like it’s been said so many times before,

5 Rules to Live by

This are some of my rules I live by. I’m not perfect. So I admit sometimes it’s a struggle. I believe one day I’ll get the hang of it.


Be you, because no one else can

 No matter if someone is doing something else or a whole group of people are doing the same thing, you have the right, scratch that; it’s your duty to always be true to you.

There are so many people walking around today saying to themselves, “I wish I did it when I had the chance.” Sometimes it’s a situation other times it could be a really important part of life you missed out on, because you were worried about what the next person was going to say about it. As you know and I know; No one can live for you. So you have to always do what is going to help you live your best life.


Be Humble

It’s something that has the ability to make you relatable to almost anyone. It’s also just a great quality to have.

Many times when people are humble they also have a large capacity to be extremely empathetic.

Another great quality.


Love often

I believe loving people is one of the things we were put here to do. As a lot of people say, “There is no life without love” and I truly believe that. Relationships are what makes life great! I’m sure there isn’t one person who could say they were better off alone. The only reason I could see someone saying that, is if they were hurt by someone and that person scarred them from ever wanting to experience that feeling again.

So love hard and love often.


Have fun

We get so busy with our day to day lives, we forget to have fun. I understand you have to work, take care of your family and other obligations. But treat fun as another thing on your to do list. Even if it’s 10 to 15 min a day, get it in. Life will be less drab if you do.

Also having fun is great for your brain. When you have fun certain chemicals are released; chemicals such as serotonin, and dopamine. Serotonin helps make you feel happy and dopamine makes you excited.

But that’s not the only reason you should have fun. Another is to have great memories to look back on. Having great memories helps to produce a great life.


Live each Day as if it were your last

This is important!! Living each day this way helps you realize what is most important to you. If we truly lived each day this way, I think there would be a lot more happy adults. But we have been taught to water ourselves down to fit into society and what is deemed normal. But you and I know, we all have things we do or think of that makes us different from the average person. Always know you have more in common with the next person than you think.

So, be open to meeting new people and doing new things.
