Day 23 (30 Days Of LOVE Affirmations ™ )

Today’s Affirmations: ” Each Day I Am Growing In LOVE and Gratitude”

Lately, I have noticed that I am expressing my LOVE and Gratitude more frequently in my life. I don’t only express GRATITUDE when things are going well; I especially express it when things don’t go my way.
Have you experienced being pissed off by a friend, family member, colleague, or a stranger by something they said or did (or didn’t say or do)? Or maybe you were waiting or hoping for something that didn’t turn out as you anticipated.  Or you didn’t get the job/potential client, a love relationship that didn’t blossom to the next level, or etc… 

I encourage you to see the silver lining in your moment of life’s disappointments. Emphasis on the word ” MOMENT”, which means any setbacks you are experiencing is TEMPORARY. In the midst of momentarily “defeats”, recite your gratitude and send LOVE to yourself, other, and your situation.

Today’s Affirmation: “I Am Grateful For LOVE and Support of My Family”

image

I feel so much LOVE and GRATITUDE right now!  Words cannot express how my soul feel.  I am overwhelmed with joy and bliss that I want to send everyone hugs and kisses.  Life is so yummy when you fully embrace and embody your greatness.  Not only from yourself, but, the greatness of others.  You know those people who always welcome you with open arms, LOVES you unconditionally, able to express your fears with tears and they truly care.  When you are around such people, the feeling of despair begins to dissipate in the air.

I’m sure many of you have friends that you consider as family, and you may feel closer to these people than your biological family.  So, when I use the term “family” in this affirmation it’s not limited to your biological family (just FYI).  Really show and tell the people who are close to you that you LOVE them.  To keep the LOVE and GRATITUDE circulating in your life.

I was inspired to write this affirmation, because, all of the LOVE & Support I recieved from family and friends.  Due to the pre-release of a collaborative book called SHIFT, which I had the honor to participate in this wondeful experience.  I want to share the LOVE, if you haven’t downloaded your copy on Kindle copy for 99 cents (limited offer).  Click here to get an EARLY bird special,lol.  Thank you for your support!

New Year, New Me!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/7af/71586996/files/2015/01/img_0557.jpg/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/7af/71586996/files/2015/01/img_0583.jpg

I know some people start off the New Year with great enthusiasm and an optimistic outlook.  And there maybe those few individuals who view the New Year as another day and don’t get into the “hype”, because, they may believe people’s enthusiasm are short lived.  Those few individuals may not see the difference about a New Year, because, they may view each day as a new beginning.  From that perspective, I can resonate with that sentiment. However, there is no harm to start the NEW YEAR with great enthusiasm, optimism, and positive outlook!

Be Thankful!

Thankful

In the U.S.A.  most people celebrate THANKSGIVING DAY!  It’s a day that most people set aside to give thanks or reflect on the things that they are thankful for.  Also, it’s a time for family, friends, and loved ones to come together to share a meal, share memories, a time to bond, and etc.  Even those individuals who may not be able to be around loved ones this time of year, there is still something to be thankful for.  It is great that people acknowledge one day (Thanksgiving) that promotes us to reflect on the reasons of why we all should be thankful.

However, being thankful transcends a holiday, especially, if you reside in the U.S.A.  Being thankful is a universal virtue.  Thanksgiving Day should be celebrated EVERYDAY!  It is something that anyone and everyone can incorporate into their lives.

thankful

  • In the morning before you begin your day, just say or state ONE thing that you are grateful for and carry that with for the day.
  • Before you go to bed at night or whenever time you rest, reflect on the day and say or state what you are grateful for.
  • It’s easy to be thankful or grateful when things are easy and going well.  Seemingly, when our lives are not going the way expected it can feel more challenging to find reasons for being thankful.  Being thankful does not have any specific criteria or standard to be in a state of gratitude.  Whatever your circumstances, you can find something to be grateful for.

I’m thankful for all of you who took the time to read this blog!

HOW TO OVERCOME LONELINESS DURING THE HOLIDAYS (and beyond)

inimation pov

Whether you are single or newly single, the holidays can sometime trigger stress rather than celebrating a joyous occasion. Even if you are not single, the holidays can be a stressful time.  Sometimes the holiday season or being around certain family members can seem dreadful to attend family gatherings; or the ache of not being able to visit your loved ones during this time can trigger certain emotions.  The holidays can bring on additional stress if you are someone who already struggles with loneliness.

Initially, when you hear or glance at the word loneliness, the immediate thought or image can be of someone who is single, don’t have someone to share their life with, and etc…   However, that is not true.  Loneliness is not based on someone’s marital or social status; rather it is an emotional state of feeling a sense of lack, void, or emptiness.  Being Alone or Aloneness seems more action oriented rather than a feelingAloneness and loneliness are not interchangeable.  There’s quite a distinction between loneliness and aloneness.

Loneliness vs. Aloneness

  • Regardless of someone’s marital or social status, loneliness can be present in that person’s life.  For example, someone can be happily single (being alone) vs. someone who is married and have a great career and they can experience loneliness.
  • A person can feel lonely, even if they are surrounded by groups of people.
  • Someone can enjoy being alone and embrace the solitude space.

These are just a few examples. As you can see, loneliness seems more of an internal/emotional state.  It can be a feeling of internal isolation/emptiness that gnaws or nag at a person’s soul or inner being.

Being alone can be seen as external or action oriented that is necessarily not rooted in feelings or emotions. Being alone can provide great beneficial opportunities to connect/reconnect with yourself.  Through solitude activities, such as prayer, mediation, quiet relaxation, reading a book, writing, and etc. Time alone can help you recharge physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. It is possible to be alone without feeling lonely; and it is possible to feel lonely with without being alone.   Which one will you choose?

Suggestions/Recommendations to Overcome Loneliness

   1. Connect With Family & Friends

  • Spend time with family and friends and make an effort to engage in conversations when you around them.  Try not to remain isolated or distant to the people around you.
  • If you don’t have any plans for the holiday season; call or reach out to a friend or family member.
  • If possible, volunteer your time in local community  with civic organizations or group.  Giving back can lift up your spirit.
  • You can invite a friend (s) over and enjoy each other company.
  • Bring or make a dish to a holiday gathering and share your contribution with everyone.
  • What are some other ways can you connect or reconnect with yourself and others?

2. Don’t  Be Down On Yourself

  • If you are around family and friends during the holiday at a family gathering.  Especially, if you are a single individual and you see other couples around you; and feelings of loneliness begins to creep in your mind, because, you don’t have someone to share the holidays with.  Instead of getting in negative self-talk mode or comparison; look for the positive traits you admire in that couple and hold that vision for yourself.  Don’t think less of yourself, because, you are not in a romantic relationship at the moment.
  • Think of some of the benefits of being single at this time?

3. Gratitude

  • Think of the things that you are grateful/thankful for … what are you grateful for in this moment?  (go ahead, think of one thing you are grateful for, right now).

4. Reframe Your Thoughts

  • When you notice a negative/self-defeating thought; change it to a positive.
  • Read a funny book or watch a funny movie to shift you out of negative state of mind.  “Laughter is the best medicine”.

5. Positive Affirmations

    • “Affection is mutually created and mutually received”
    • “I love and appreciate myself”
    • “I am surrounded by love and all is well”
    • “Today, I open my mind, my heart, my being to receive the flow of divine love.”
    • “I am an expression of all that is love”
    • Create your own affirmations.
    • “I am love being loved”
    • “I release all thoughts, doubts and fears that is not possible”
    • “I radiate love and happiness”
    • “I am positively connected and harmonious with the family of life”
    • “I have great conversations with other people”

Hopefully, you found this information helpful.  It is my hope that this awareness will decrease eliminate loneliness and increase self-love.  Enjoy the upcoming holidays!
