Sunday Reflection Quote…Since March 13th, the word “flexibility” has been stamped in bold, block letters across my forehead. Whether personal or professional, the changes have rapidly rolled across my path at an hourly, daily, or weekly rate. My anxious belly and early morning overthinking ceiling staring brain have become front runners. There’s an uninvited new normal. I am tired, overwhelmed, and disheartened. Nonetheless, this week I was reminded goals are essential. Even in the midst of turmoil and heartache, my personal path is of value. I don’t have to explain away. I don’t have to back up the back up. I can just be. I can grind and do my thing. It is good enough. Why? Because I am stubborn, yet flexible. Because I carry with me my family legacy of “Don’t tell me, I’m the teller.” There is balance in loose and tight. There is value in go slow to go fast. Here’s to my personal and professional goals. Here’s to my predefined methods; they are good enough. As am I.

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, on a Monday)…Uncertainty has always been there, lurking in the dark corners of the future. Now it’s in the spotlight, magnified front and center, for every eye to inspect. Held in the balance, life and how to live it. Does one freeze and not budge? Does one dip a toe, testing the waters? Does one take the plunge and immerse themselves? I’m reminded I have the power to choose my own path. Here’s to putting uncertainty on the shelf, giving it a nod of acknowledgement, and continuing to live my life. No justification needed.

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, on a Monday almost Tuesday; what day is it anyway?)…The last few weeks have been a challenge for a variety of reasons cuz life, human, and unanticipated triggers. I’m reminded holding it all in and shoving it deep down inside doesn’t work. It isn’t reasonable. It isn’t healthy. It isn’t sustainable. I’m immensely grateful for the unwavering support and unconditional love from my man, Memphis. He gets it and gets me; nudging me to get it out and reset. There’s no shame in being emotional or vulnerable. I’m realizing I’m stronger for it. Here’s to knowing where I’m headed and refocusing!

Sunday Quote, 4/26/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote…We’re in the muck and it’s a polarizing hot, hot mess. Fear has been promoted to gatekeeper. Empowered with gusto to keep the in in and the out out. At the onset, some were treading water. Now, pulled beneath the surface clawing and scratching to get back up. Others effortlessly skipping across the surface. Now, stopped in tracks scrambling to determine the next move. We all have our challenges, shortcomings, and triggers. We all have our goals, hopes, and dreams. We all have a unique journey. We all are human. I’m reminded my country is founded on life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I’m reminded to rebuke the path of passivity and victim mentality. Here’s to repeatedly resetting to maintain my path of health, wellness, and happiness. I decide!

Enough

Elbows-
on the table
glow of the screen
socks kicked off
at the ready.

Here I hunker-
there you hunker
down
keeping
the in in
the out out.

Even when-
upset
uncertain
scared

We
are still here
gravitating to
the same place
the same space.

In this moment –
I can’t promise
anything
neither can you
nor they.

Things-
everything
shifting
changing
evolving.

Yet-
in this moment
as I belly up
to the table
socks near
my feet

Elbows-
on the table
ink dancing
on the page

It is enough.

In this moment-
I am enough
doing enough
so are you
so are they.

Sunday Reflection Quote…Just like that, we’re all getting schooled. Ironically, while we try to flatten the curve, the learning curve is insanely steep. The levels of adversity we’re experiencing as individuals and as a collective spans a continuum. The end points unknown. I’m reminded we all perceive and process adversity differently. Each predicated on prior experiences; each equally valid. Here’s to acknowledging the difficulties, shifting gears, and pressing on.

Sunday Reflection Quote…Whether on a micro or macro level I’m reminded mindset is key. The onslaught of negativity and entitlement can be a powerful magnet; required to be repeatedly rebuked. Over the years I’ve worked incredibly hard to reset my mind, heart, and body. I refuse succumb to temporary pitfall pulls. I’m reminded choosing to be reflective, positive, and strong is my wellness path. Here’s to adding without apology and staying in my lane.

Sunday Reflection Quote…Whether the past is an hour ago or decades, second thoughts only begets guilt or regret. Whether observing others in a superficial or competitive light, comparison only begets inferiority or envy. I’m reminded neither living in the past, nor observing others is conducive to creating value. Here’s to honoring gifts of the present and fostering happiness.
