Sunday Reflection Quote…When life is overwhelmingly challenging and full of darkness it’s hard to believe there’s light. Four years ago I was immersed in that space. Incredibly downtrodden, defeated, unfocused, and unsettled. I had to force myself to find daily joy points in the simple things…making the bed, cooking, hearing a great song, feeling the wind in my hair, or watching the sun set. Over time, setting small intentions and following through eventually brought me out of the muck. Little did I know those baby steps were planting seeds of contentment. Never would I have imagined I’d be in the space I am today. What a gift to finally harvest peace!

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, Monday)…The past week the theme of perspective bubbled to the surface. We have our own experiences; our own truths. The story within ourselves carves decisions and the path ahead. Sometimes perspective can become skewed by external influences; however, intentional reflection can reset back to the authentic core. I’m reminded to pause and take the time to actually see. Seeing rather than looking; listening rather than hearing yields more value and understanding.

Sunday Reflection Quote…This week I’m reminded I can’t be all things to all people; it isn’t reasonable. I can only do the best I can with what I have. Not everything is to be compared, nor a competition. Who I am and what I do (or don’t) is good enough!

Sunday Reflection Quote…It is said good things come for those who wait. On the contrary, I believe good things and happiness comes from what you make. There are times when fear needs to be put in check to take the leap into the joy of the moment. I’m happier and more at peace now than I’ve been in a very, very long time. Intentionality for change is no easy feat, but it is certainly sweet!

Sunday Reflection Quote…The past week reminded me behavior is communication. A new school year calls for mindfulness. I’m intentionally cognizant of my energy and what fuels or drains me. Establishing boundaries when needed, stepping up, stepping back, and choosing battles all equates to better self care and a positive mindset. I’m genuinely optimistic and hopeful; peace lives in my heart and mind.

Sunday Reflection Quote…My life has been full of many changes the last few weeks and it has been liberating building the new! I’m now living with my boyfriend, have changed schools/grade level/content, have a new administrator and colleagues, and have made shifts for healthier choices. Once I opened my mind and heart to the new, my perspective and intentions have changed. I genuinely feel more positive, motivated, and content than I’ve been in a very long time. Life can be incredibly challenging, but when energy for the new is the focus, positivity opens up and moments are that much sweeter. I’m grateful!

Sunday Reflection Quote…Pokerz has been at the forefront the last couple days and my dad’s voice has been in my head “play your own game.” I’m realizing this is true in many facets in life, not only poker. There’s relationships, career, competition, goals, and choices in general to navigate. Nowadays we’re inundated with input, checklists, and comparisons.

Being myself and making healthy choices for my head and heart has brought me more happiness and contentment than I’ve had in a very long time.

Sometimes life throws a massive curve ball and it takes a long time to recover. With awareness and determination, we can find our way to master “our own game.” I’m grateful for the peace in my heart and adventures ahead!

Sunday Reflection Quote…Change lives on a continuum and this weekend tipped the scale in the most positive direction. In my book, sharing one’s life with another under the same roof is a big change; a big deal. The heart, mind, and spirit are vulnerable blending lives to build one together. I’m excited to start our next chapter; immensely grateful for our new beginnings! @mns_traveler

Sunday Reflection Quote… This week I caught myself comparing and rationalizing. All of which is a bunch of hooey chipping away at my self-confidence and steady progress. We all have our own story; our own essence. I don’t need to apologize for who I am, nor my journey. Here’s to giving myself permission to simply be and lead with unapologetic confidence.
