Sunday Reflection Quote…No matter the capacity, hard work is simply that—hard. If one is working on their career, personal goals, or self improvement on a physical/mental/emotional level, the grind can get stale. There’s the rub. If the mindset is “grind,” then the connotation may lead to a static path of negativity. If the mindset is to “strive,” then the path is dynamic and positive. Due to the pandemic, as a collective, we’ve passed the one year mark of working hard through challenge after challenge after challenge. Fatigue or impatience with oneself or others may be more pronounced. Nonetheless, now is the time to push through and persevere on a micro and macro level. I’m reminded I am a hard worker; hard wired to strive. Those efforts have been fruitful. I’m also reminded I have one life and I have the power to choose how I live it. Here’s to being kind to myself and pushing on with perseverance and striving!

Sunday Reflection Quote…I didn’t know until I knew. There’s love and there’s a whole other level of unconditional love. The latter is selfless; yet, quietly powerful. To be unconditionally accepted through all the nuances of the good, bad, and ugly is a gift. When it is received, there’s an undercurrent of strength that slowly builds over time. That current harnesses a power, which releases courage. I’m reminded there’s nothing more beautiful and vulnerable than the willingness to share one’s life with another. Here’s to a life of strength AND courage as @mns_accountant as I begin our journey as husband and wife!

Sunday Reflection Quote…The life line has pushes and pulls. There’s also moments of stagnation instigated by outside constraints or inside fears. I’m reminded life is for living and I choose the path. Here’s to putting fear on the shelf and leaving regrets in the rear view mirror.

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, on a Monday)…Life’s journey is certainly unpredictable with all the ups and downs, twists and turns. Interestingly, the words warrior and fighter have been sprinkled across recent readings, movies, and conversations. At the same time, adjectives such as intimidating, confident, focused, stubborn, and determined have graced my ears. This has been couched in my past decisions and recent achievements. In reality, I would contend it is the patience I’ve had with myself to continually work hard, fail, learn, and grow. In reality, it’s the gift of time—weeks, months, and years shaping who I am today. The intentionality to be patient and give myself time to create a space to reset, to be happy, and to love has been the most powerful. I’m reminded to keep my chin up and to keep my eye on the prize. Here’s to savoring the sweetness of affirmation!

Sunday Quote, 02/07/2021

Sunday Reflection Quote…I’m coming off a couple weeks of reflecting back and looking ahead cuz birthdays will do that (My recent 47th and my dad’s 75th today along with a close friend). In addition, energy has been spent deflecting negativity, wordsmithing a piece of writing, and maintaining healthy boundaries. Disequilibrium of the mind or heart is incredibly uncomfortable. However, once rebalanced, the value of the stretch is priceless. I’m reminded to just sit with it. Sit with being uncomfortable. Sit with being upset. Sit with being vulnerable. I’m also reminded to embrace confidence, to be assertive, and to stay in my lane. One must dare to take the leap; daring is living.

Sunday Quote, 01/24/2021

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, on Monday)…Like most, I’m so over it. I mean seeeriously (said with my Mickey Mouse voice 😉😆). Over all the policy and protocol changes. Over the inefficiencies of bureaucratic bullshit. Over people in power making decisions with ZERO experience or context. Over the uncertainty of the future. I mean, seriously! Nonetheless, nonetheless. I’m reminded the future is ALWAYS uncertain. Always has been and always will be. That being said, I’m reminded to live in the now. Why? The beauty of peace and happiness yields more value. I’m reminded living in the past feeds depression and living in the future feeds anxiety and fear. I’m reminded don’t tell me, I’m the teller. Here’s to living immediately!

Sunday Reflection Quote…Just 17 days into 2021 and the absorb/discard muscles have been flexing hard. I can sense “add” will be my challenge to bring to the forefront and sprinkle in. I’m reminded it takes a mindset of intentionality to deflect the energy suckers and power on. Here’s to having the courage and confidence to “add” and hold strong.

Sunday Quote, 01/03/2021

Sunday Reflection Quote…The calendar has flipped to the New Year, which naturally means reflecting back and projecting ahead. Nestled between the pages are nuggets to carry forward and others to leave behind. I’m reminded excuses are like belly buttons, everyone has one and distractions are distracting. I’ve let both get in the way and I still have unfinished business. Here’s to focusing for the New Year!
