It’s so much easier when we let relationships happen naturally rather than force them. When it’s not coming organically, it’s a good indicator to not pursue it. The wrong relationships can distract us from the ones we’re supposed to have — the ones flowing with health and life.
Choose to come at things from a positive angle! It makes you more fun to be around & it truly allows you to feel happier! It’s easy to be the person that brings the conversation down but no one wants to be that person haha! Fight for your lightheartedness & your whole life will follow!
Fighting to stay peaceful in your environment helps everyone else to have fun around you. As the leader, you establish how things are going to be. If you’re stressed, everyone will be stressed. If you’re restful, then everyone else can relax. Whatever is going on around you, KEEP YOUR JOY!!!
1. NEWS FLASH ⚡️ We’re all a little bit weird! But that’s no reason to throw someone away.
2.Stop obsessing on your selfie. The more I think about myself the more narrow my worldview becomes. When I open up & think about other people I feel so much more in tune with reality.
3. WAKE UP! Don’t allow yourself to become numbed out by the comfort of your daily grind routine. Make sure that you are sowing, watering & nurturing the seeds that you want to grow in your life! Be willing to change.
Ideal circumstances are hard to find. Anticipating unexpected barriers to pop up between us & our goals & refusing the momentary comfort of procrastination can circumvent anxiety. It can be tempting to stay under the covers when the weight of responsibilities start to stack up on top of us. Instead of getting caught up in emotion, let’s look at practical ways to breakdown big projects into small checkmarks so that we can build momentum.
The people who have agitated me the most have actually caused the most growth in my life. Those weird, awkward, terrible moments can bear the best fruit if we choose to overcome. I am grateful for those people who end up forcing me to mature & operate as a better version of myself even though it’s VERY uncomfortable sometimes. I also know I’ve been the one to irritate others to grow as well haha. Let’s keep fighting to be better!
Sometimes I wake up exhausted & don’t even know what made me so tired. I am finally learning to ask myself: is this what I want to spend my ONE life on? Of course we all have to do things we don’t want to & there is a way to do them with more efficiency. But there are also unnecessary things that will fill our days if we don’t intentionally plan. In order to properly strategize our lives, we have to stop & be quiet. It isn’t easy to turn off all the noise & distraction, but it’s WORTH it to get us where we want to go!
Being known by someone is a great feeling. It can also be terrifying to be that vulnerable! But if people don’t have access to hurt you, they also don’t have access to love you. I’ve had seasons in my life where I’ve protected myself because I was afraid of getting hurt. But I’ve learned that it’s so special to have someone truly know who you are & what is going on in your heart. It’s worth the effort.
I am a dreamer by nature, but in life I’ve learned how to be a doer and to support my own vision with action! It’s easy to be overwhelmed at first but I’ve figured out that as you break it all down with daily tasks, your weeks and months get you closer to your goals! As we conquer the little things that stand in our way each day, eventually that leads us to where we see ourselves heading.
Allowing people to step into leadership & increase their capacity is necessary to grow the lives around you. This can be a painful process for people who like control, who are micromanagers, or are creatives. It’s also annoying when it’s so much faster to do things yourself. But it is such a joy to watch people grow! I’ve learned as a leader that I am only as good as my team. One of the greatest things we can offer is to create opportunities for people to have a meaningful contribution & to see their hand in building whatever it is that we are working on. There are lots of ways to arrive at the same destination. As we stop micromanaging & start allowing other people to add their part, we end up with a brand new unique set of skills & perspective only they have to offer! Make room in your life for other people to be great!
