There will be little bumps, hiccups, and unexpectedness that will have you slowing down in life. You will never be prepared for them but when they arrive give in. Reflect and slow down.
There are many times to where I am amazed at the way Justin thinks. We’ve been talking about doing things that make him happy. At first Justin did not want to do Marching Band. But once he gave it a shot he fell in love with it.
Because the upperclassmen doesn’t like the new Marching Band teacher most of them wants to quit.
So I asked Justin does he want to quit?
His response: ” No, I’m not quitting because I don’t like the teacher, I’m doing Marching Band because I Love Music”
Despite what’s around him he plans to continue to do what he loves. He doesn’t like the negativity of his friends talking about the teacher so he said he just listen and does what’s best for him.
👀😳 I was amazed.
I said Wow Justin, it takes some people years to learn how to do things for what they have a passion for and not follow others.
He said, well you teach me to do what I love and stick to it. You also allow me to be myself and do what makes me happy.
That was truly a proud Mommy moment. Sometimes I question if I’m doing a good job and from the talks of it. I am. 😊
I originally was writing this back in the beginning part of the year.
So far things have and haven’t been going as planned. I was suppose to be well into writing my book, finishing up my meditation course and posting to the site consistently. I failed myself in consistently completed these things. I’ve been hearing lately ” Don’t Give Up. Keep Doing it No Matter What” I’ll have to admit the advice is right. I won’t quit no matter what.
So here’s the update. My outline for the book is complete. I now have a new title for the book and I’m a chapter complete. I’m also working on a second book with a coauthor 😊.
As you can see I’ve been posting to my blog consistently and drum 🥁 🥁🥁🥁🥁 roll please I completed my Meditation Teaching Course!!!!!
So now I’m a Meditation Teacher.
My original plan for this post was to write how I couldn’t keep but but I must keep going. I’m not sure why I didn’t post back then but I guess everything happens for a reason. I needed to post it today.
So I’m Keeping My Word!!! So should you when accomplishing your goals. It may not happen in your timeline just make sure it happens!!
It’s okay to get off track sometimes. Just don’t stay off track for to long. It won’t be hard to get back on. It’s just the drive to get there might be a little sluggish making the train ride a little longer than what you expected.
I believe rainbows have now become my new symbol of knowing that all is well. I’ve been becoming more aware of my thoughts. As a result I’ve been becoming more aware of myself. I’m realizing that, I am not who I was a few months ago or weeks ago, or even yesterday despite who reminds me of who I use to be.
Growth can occur daily. Change always takes place when you want change. Some people like to hold onto to who you use to be. Never seeing who you’re becoming. We can get caught up by others hold on to our past selves. I know I’m guilty of it. It’s very frustrating when you’re trying to let go of who you were, when others still hold on to it.
I realized this week to allow them to hold on to what they believe of me because it’s their belief and way of thinking. The only persons thoughts and beliefs I can control is my own.
I am not what people think of me. I am not my negative thoughts. I am every positive thought I perceive myself to be.
Seeing the rainbows today was a reminder that I am on the right thinking and journey path. I am where I need to be.
Don’t be consume by the negative people and energy that will or may be around you. Have you ever noticed you was in a good mood and someone comes around you that is not in a good mood, and then all of a sudden you’re now in the same mood as them?
Well, that’s transference of energy. I learned about this many years ago and realized that many of my bad days weren’t really my bad days. I was just identifying and absorbing the energy that’s around me.
Not all negative energy is bad from my own experience of it. I can sense what a person needs based on their energy. I know how to now truly engage in a situation by feeling the energy of the person I’m around. I know when the emotion is a I need help sad emotion that may be seen as negative or when it’s I just want to complain because this is my mood and I’m stuck ways negative emotions.
In both situations you can be understanding by listening, pray for the person, and then reflect on the moment realizing your own inner peace. They way I found myself always getting sucked into these emotions is by immediately identifying with the person. This way they knew I was able to relate to them. I didn’t realize I was taking away their story by personalizing and now embodying their energy.
Think about it!! How many conversations had you had that you’d identify with then feeling the same as that person because you remember old feelings?
Yup we all do it, so don’t feel bad about it just be mindful of it.
Happy Monday! 😘

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.
