"March to the beat of your own drum," is an idiom I embrace wholeheartedly. March on sister. March on. ⁣⁠💃🏽💃🏻💃🏿💃🏼 ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ #SocialMediaForTheSoul #womenartists #creativewomen #fempreneur #solopreneur #bossbabe #empowerher #hersuccess #heartcentered #selfcompassion #selfdoubt #impostersyndrome #youareenough #womenwriters #femalewriters #writersofinsta #creativitychasers #createeveryday #handsandhustle #createyourhappy #bycaacademy #womenwithvison

(Pardon my ugly handwriting) We make choices everyday, consciously or subconsciously. But most of our day is spent in the subconscious. We think and feel without much thought about it. This means we also subconsciously choose how we feel during the day. We might curse if someone cuts us off and we complain about it at the end of the day. But why? Why hold onto something all day just to complain about it at the end? The person caused you a millisecond’s worth of an inconvenience. We have a choice when annoyances and irritations happen. We can either hold onto it and let it fester and grow. Or we can acknowledge it happened, it was irritating, and then move on. (“But did you die?”) Everyday we are given a more...meta-choice. We can either live our lives allowing ourselves to react without observation, to complain and speak negatively, and poison our subconscious/environment. Or we can live intentionally in every moment and choose how we think or feel about something that happens to us. We can’t control WHAT happens to us, but we can control HOW we handle it. I also think we have a choice when it comes to our happiness. I am not saying depression is a choice. Absolutely not. But I am saying we have a choice about how we deal with it. Do we let depression and anxiety rule every moment of our lives? Or do we find tools and ways to improve our environment/mindset? So all of this to say, try to be more present in each moment. Not in terms of appreciation of life, but of accountability. When something triggering happens, observe your reaction, determine if it’s an appropriate response, and also ask why that was your first reaction. And then choose: do I react with my first thought or is there a better alternative? Maybe a more positive response? Negativity is easy. Positivity in a world of criticism and judgement is harder. . . . #lifechoices #chooselove #cho#choosehappiness #intentionalliving #positivity #positivevibes #choosehappiness #liveinthepresent #appreciatelife #accountability #selfgrowth #selfcompassion

I was just thinking about how much I used to dread Monday mornings. I would feel sick to my stomach with dread on Sunday nights because I so badly didn’t want to go to work on Monday morning. It’s because I kept falling into the trap of thinking the future mattered more than the present. Life is so short and none of it is guaranteed. Are you making choices in your life that are oriented towards creating a meaningful life NOW, not sometime in the future? I don’t think there’s anything that can be more clarifying than remembering that nothing is worth more than this day. • today: morning snuggles; O surprising me by getting clothes on; pumpkin oatmeal; being able to do calls in comfy clothes; sitting in on O’s storytelling class and getting lots of snuggles; a workout; our neighbors finding their cat; O taking me on a secret route to the beach; playing in the Ocean, feeling the sand and water; E bringing me lunch; O being at an age where we can have fun conversations; cookies; an air conditioned bus ride; resting on the bed and catching a tiny nap; an easy dinner all together and hearing about everyone’s day; laughing at O’s cursing; sweet text from D; watching a show and a comfy bed.

Growth 🌱🌲 My parents planted these trees to mark mine and my sister's births. My sister's has grown taller than the house, mine barely taller than me. And you know what that means? Nothing. Absolutly effing nothing.  You create your own life and happiness. I most certainly did.  Go out there and make life happen ✊. . #growth #personalgrowth #selfdevelopment #selfimprovement #selfcompassion #familiesarecomplicated #family #makeyourownluck #creatorofyourownhappiness #raiseupmums
