After a long day, Justin finds great pleasure in laying across my bed and talking to me. He said that there is something about my bed that helps him relax and clear his head. So I told him to relax away.

Yesterday, while Justin and I was going over the details of the photo shoot. He explained to me that his feelings are like the branches and the layers of the tree. He said some emotions you can see on the outside that is easy to explain. While other emotions are on the inside to where no one can see nor understand. I thought was a great analogy of his emotions.

I kid you not in the back of my mind I’m like I should be recording this for others to hear how he processes things. It’s amazing how he views and sees things. Listening to him process things openly helps me at times to understand him better.

I’m big on communication and being open and honest with your feelings. I allow him to be himself freely but make sure he respects me because I am his mother. I think that’s why we have the relationship we do.

Are your emotions like a Tree? 🤔

I think Justin maybe on to something.

Today I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking to a young business mom. She recalled me being in her store from a month prior. I was surprised she remembered me. It was great seeing her again because as we talked, she said that I inspired her when actually she inspired me.

As I told her about myself. I realized all that I had going on and all of the things that I need to finish into completion. I realized that my service is greatly needed and my voice needs to be heard. She inspired me to continue and to get a move on things.

The funny thing is, if Justin had not reminded me that I promised to take him to that store today I wouldn’t have gone. Also, If I didn’t have car trouble earlier in the day, I would have been in session with a client.

It’s amazing how the universe works.

My sister is living in her purpose and has become a photographer. Today Justin will have a photo shoot with her capturing all of emotions he goes through throughout the day. I didn’t tell him about until Just now and boy oh boy I can feel the anxieties flowing.

He’s like:

What is it for?

What do I have to do?

Is this for the blog?

What emotions should I do?

I’m sure in his mind he’s really like, you pulled me out of Band practice for this! When I told him it was for a project, he said okay. But I can still feel his anxiety. I’m very mindful of what I say and how I say things to him. I don’t dismiss my emotions because I’m entitled to feel the way I do they same way I allow him to express them.

On another note. Wish us Luck! Today will be a great day because I Believe it will be. 😊

In life we get confused by the choices we must make. Don’t allow for those choices to linger to long. The more they linger the more you become indecisive.

At times I can become very indecisive with decisions I must make. I went through this process.

1 I’m always weighing my options picking between only two when there is more options available. I pick the two most likely options.

2 Checking with others to see what they think.

3 Listing the pros and cons

4 Visualize both options

5. Pick the option that feels rights.

This was always my process when I was confused about a decision I needed to make. I became dependent on others to help me rationalize my thinking. Then I began to over think because what if the lessor options are the better choices 🤔. Then listening the pros and cons 😳! 🤦🏽‍♀️ Made it even more difficult.

I now go straight to number 4 and 5. I visualize my options and I go what feels right. Some times when deciding things, it’s just using your intuition. Go with what feels right. When you go with what feels right you always pick the right option.

So I forgot to post my update and my progress. Things are going great. I think it takes 21 Days to really get your mind prepared and ready for the changes you will make in your life. The first few days I’ll admit was a rough start and as you guys know I was ready to start again. But I didn’t and I’m glad I didn’t.

I think if I had restarted I would have restarted over and over again, because I would have felt like I was doing it wrong or I wasn’t giving my all. When in reality I was. I needed to just go with the flow of things.

In the 21 days I lost 11 pounds. I gained motivation. I have more energy. I feel a lot better despite getting sick a bit. I’m even more determined more now than before.

I’ve also started meditating more as I wanted to. I’m back to reading and listening to my positive talks again. I’m changing my thinking and the people I allow to consume my space and energy.

So I decided to continue with 21 days and now go into the 90 days to make it a lifestyle.

Today is day 25 of 90. I’m so ready for the road ahead.

Lifestyle Change * Thinking Change* Professional and Meditation Practice Change*

Surroundings Change* Physical Change*

Changing what needs to be Changed* 😊

Every day I listen to a positive podcast to get my through my day and today’s message is: ” “Treat people the way you want to be treated”

Kindness is the key 🔑 I know it’s hard with the climate of the world being so negative and on edge at the moment. We will get through this as we always do.

Have a wonderful Friday!
