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 Quote, 01/17/2021

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!

Sunday Quote, 12/13/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote…Even when stressed, exhausted, or defeated I’m reminded to simply keep showing up. Show up despite failure. Show up despite fear. Show up despite shame. I’m reminded distance and time is a gift allowing Grace to work her magic to reset. Here’s to showing up again and again!

Sunday Quote, 11/22/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote…The push/pull distractions are plentiful. Seems every turn, there’s somethin’ somethin’ of another change, demand, or disappointment. All the strings are simultaneously tugged causing anguish of the heart and mind. It’s exhausting and I’ve been exhausted. I’m reminded what’s between my ears doesn’t necessarily match what’s in front of my eyes. What’s in front of me is the priority. Here’s to focusing on what I can control, staying strong, and planting my feet in reality.

Sunday Quote, 11/01/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote…The last couple weeks revealed a peaceful thread of simplicity can be woven on the daily. Contentment can be etched by minimizing time zappers, rebuking negative interactions, and clearing the physical/mental clutter. I’m reminded wealth extends beyond the bank account. Despite all the ugliness and absurd push/pull in the world, here’s to staying the course creating a life of simplicity, intentionality, and contentment.

Sunday Quote, 10/18/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote…The making a living grind has been seriously on like Donkey Kong. The last two weeks have been nothing short of ridiculous. Trying to balance the demands of synchronous in person and distance learning now punctuated by positive COVID cases in class and contact tracing sending numerous students to quarantine has felt unbearable. The sleepless nights, feelings of defeat and ineffectiveness, numerous pivots, and bureaucratic demands is absolutely exhausting. Despite it all, I’m reminded I’ve been through worse and have come out of the darkness stronger. I’m reminded it is okay to not be okay. I’m reminded I can’t be all things to all people. I’m reminded it isn’t all my weight to carry. I’m reminded asserting boundaries is allowed. I’m reminded to speak up. Here’s to making a life; I have just one. Here’s to setting an intention to forge a life of health, happiness, and balance.

Sunday Quote, 10/05/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, on Monday)…The last few weeks have been magnified doozies. No doubt the next few on deck will be as well. There are stressors, uncertainties, and a mountain of tasks to check off the list. There’s also successes, hope, and happiness. I’m reminded how I choose to respond and carry things are entirely up to me. I can cave to the pulls and jump on the negativity bandwagon. But that’s not my heart and doing so adds zero value to my wellbeing. Or, I can carve out my joy by establishing boundaries, taking space, and grinding it out. I waver at times, but I do my best to hold strong and choose the latter. It is hard work. It can be exhausting. It can be defeating. It can be lonely at times. It can be rewarding. It can be fulfilling. It can be inspiring. Here’s to acknowledging such is life; I am entirely up to me.
