Rebellions are built on hope.
The life lesson that I've learned is to not take life so seriously. If someone doesn't like me, I read a piece of irritating news, or if a bill is due, everything will be fine. If for some reason a memory of when I was in my clingy and cringy phase suddenly came up to destroy my entire 3 hours of the day, stop! It ain't that deep, being cringy at 14 or 16 or even 18 isn't that deep. It's not worth mulling over, analysing it. Life is life and its time to enjoy it. Make memories andaugh and be grateful for the things that you have, that's whats important now everything is do or die. The things that have cause anxiety and headaches, I've stopped allowing to control me. That's the most important life lesson so far.
Day 8: Favorite song will have to be Proud Mary! it s such a great song and it really uplifts your mood. I always start dancing and singing, and it reminds of a bright day of grinding and working hard.
Day 7: an opportunity I'm grateful for, was when I had decided to work towards going to s specific arts school. I worked very hard, everyday, practicing my lines. I even performed in front of 250 kids and adults. That in itself was an opportunity. I had pulled someone aside from the convention and asked if I could perform my monologue. It was great! Back to getting into the school, it was such an amazing experience that I am so grateful I got to go through.
Good morning! I don't know why I dont keep up with checking in. Anyways today's meditation was great, I felt like I could truly calm my mind. It got to the point where I was just there floating around. I love it.
Today I woke up way later than I expected, but I definitely needed the rest. Moving on, the start of the day is beautiful. I feel strengthen and refresh when listening to this meditation. Today I choose happiness. I choose relaxation. I choose me.
Day 6: A hidden blessing in a difficult situation: when I was going through a very thoughtful time in my life recently, I realized the strength and resourcefulness I had learned. It gave me the tools that I needed to follow through on my dreams, and that I am enough, strong enough, to get through/over any obstacle. That's why in the end, I'm so grateful for that strength, for the love and support that surronds me, for my home.
I did the same stretching routine as yesterday. I don't know I think I'll stick with it. I really haven't found anything that I like, so here's a pretty picture with a nice quote. Day 6 done.
This was a much needed meditation. Yesterday I didn't finish a lot of my goals and I just felt overwhelmed. Like I was trying to do too much, and so I just needed a break. I felt bad about it, but going through this meditation I feel good again. I still have pressure but I don't feel overwhelmed or upset if I don't accomplish my goals. I'm just going to keep pushing through, knowing that I have a purpose
I don't have a ton of true accomplishments, but since starting this journey. I've been feeling more accomplished. Why? Because my life has been filled with inconsistency and failed dreams. Constant ups and downs, but now I feel stronger within myself. Maybe that's the true accomplishment.
So since it's so early, I opted in for no talking, gentle indie music stretching. It felt so good. I realize though that my hip flexors are super tight. Definitely going to have to work on that.
Today I woke up at 2:30!!! Ugh it's super early. I decided to just lay down and do the meditation. My mind is more quiet and I feel better than ever.
I finally finish studying, of course po (my bird) couldn't help but to congratulate me.
I am on day 3 of the challenge and let me tell you, I am still sweating like crazy. It was so fun, a real stress reliever. I was able to push myself harder and do some the harder versions of the exercise. The funniest thing about working out today is that my bird try to join lol. Yas another day done. ⋛⋋(◐⊝◑)⋌⋚
My favorite memory is when I went to the beach for the first time at 16. My mom had woken us very early in the morning, it was a school day, but it didn't matter. We were on our way. The entire day was beautiful, we got to see the sunrise, ride bikes, eat some wawa. I loved it.
So this was for yesterday, but the pic didn't upload: I am SWEATING!!! Just finish day two and man does it feel good. There are literal drops streaming down my body, so I know I pushed myself. Also I drank another gallon of water, so I'm on track with that. The only thing was that I had burger King, bagels, and cereal so again not the healthiest of days. I am down 2 lbs though so progress(・'v`・)？？
