Gratitudeย 

the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
People always post about how they are ‘so thankful’, ‘so grateful’, ‘so blessed’, etc., but are they really? Or are we just saying it and not mentally checking within and spending the time to truly BE THANKFUL for what we have in our life? 

I am going to get a little personal. I had a breakdown this morning. Luckily my kids were not around to witness it. I just broke down and sobbed on my floor. I tried to figure out why I am feeling this way. I sat down and did some reflecting. I also did some meditating on my new Headspace App I mentioned in my previous post. Today’s session was about stop trying to push things into happening, just stop trying and it will happen. There were examples like – if you are trying too hard to fall asleep and trying to get comfortable you cannot, but at some point you drift away when you are not thinking about it. 

I then was flashed back to a time a few months ago when the word “Gratitude” was staring me in the face quite often. I would see it in an e-mail, I would see it on a social media post, but I never stopped to think it meant anything to me. Today I dug more into the word Gratitude and what it means. It made me realize that I need to practice this more. I always try to focus on the next “best thing”. I need to stop and live in the moment, and enjoy what I have. Just live and BE. 

I felt pulled to share this with you this morning. I hope you have a great day!

Metanoia: the journey of changing one’s mind, heart, self, or way of life.

I struggle with my world being shook when certain events happen without warning. What I mean by this is, any time some sort of change happens that interrupts whatever routine I have going on, my mind goes scattered and I get very off track.

When this happens, usually life as I know it gets altered in some form . Meaning I have to readjust and recreate a routine that works for me again. The past month has been like this, which explains me disappearing off of here for a hot moment.

So lately I have been making positive changes to my daily routine in hopes to create a new lifestyle. A better lifestyle. This does not mean the one I had was flawed. Throughout our life I feel as though we are constantly evolving. I am evolving, so I readjust as I feel necessary.

Currently, I am studying chakras, and crystals. I am still just on the first one: The Root. I have also begun practicing meditation using an app I discovered called Headspace (found in the Apple App Store if anyone wonders). To study the chakras, I am reading a book titled “Wheels of Life:A User’s Guide to the Chakra System” by Anodea Judith, PH.D.

I know this isn’t what I originally based this blog on, but I am trying not to bother myself with that and just let it all flow out. I am learning to take care of myself mentally as well as physically, because while it is good to do unto others, sometimes other do not do unto you. You cannot pour from an empty cup. I am learning this lesson, and working on it.

I am in the process of transforming my mind and soul. I want to learn how I tick, and what moves me. Life is such a mysterious journey. I want to uncover all it’s mysteries that I can while I have it. So maybe this wasn’t a book review. Maybe I just need an outlet, and my fingers lead me here.

UPDATE: I switched to a more modern chakra guide! I now am using Chakra Healing by Margarita Alcantara.
