It Starts With You

Hi Beautiful!

it’s time for a change, what’s holding you back?

Guess what? I know I know exactly what’s holding you back. It’s not money, it’s not timing, it’s not others holding you back, it’s not a million other excuses that you are probably trying to come up with right now.

What’s holding you back is YOU! Let’s just take a step back and think about it. You will really need to let go, clear your mind, and step out of your comfort zone and really do a Self Evaluation and become “Self Aware”.

Vanessa’s quick Note: When I feel like this or become aware of myself coming up with a million excuses as to why I am unable to do something; I take a step back, pray and ask God for clarity, and meditate.

It’s time for you to get out of your own way and start living life as you are now. Take 5 minutes out of your day and ask yourself these 5 questions, and allow yourself to feel and really evaluate what is going on in your mind and with your emotions as you answer these questions.

  1. Who are you?
  2. What are your values?
  3. Do you care what people think of you?
  4. What drives you or what motivates you?
  5. Do you love yourself?

If you are stuck, feel free to email me at LivingLifeAsIAm@gmail.com and I can help you through.

Now think about where you want to be in life in as much detail as possible. If you need to write it down, go ahead and write it down. Think about it as if it were the life you are living now. Feel it, live it, dream it.

Now that you have done a quick evaluation of who you are, what is holding you back from living your life as you picture it?

Once you have the answers to these questions, you can now start taking the steps necessary to get to the life that you want, all while living your best life as you are right now. It Starts with You!

New Beginnings

Hey guys,

After a much needed mental break, I’m back…

I just wanted to give you all a quick update on what has been going on with me lately. For the last couple of weeks I have not been blogging as much as I would have liked too, and if you haven’t noticed there has not been any “Get Your Mind Right Monday” posts for the past few weeks (CRAZY, I KNOW!).

At the beginning of March there was a huge unexpected bomb dropped on me (and my friends/Co-Workers), I mean this came out of left field for me. I personally felt like I had been hit by a train physically and mentally and I was forced to make a decision as to what my next move was going to be for my family and I. I guess this just goes to show that you can’t get to comfortable in your current situation. I am a true believer that when God closes one door, another one opens with bigger and better opportunities.

One season of my life is coming to an end and a new one is beginning.

Don’t get me wrong, even though now I know that I am destined to accomplish great things in this next season of my life, my stress level had been off the charts for the last few weeks. I literally had to force myself to snap out of it, put a smile on my face, and take on the days as if everything was all good (I am pretty good at faking it until I make it). So I say all of that to say this, “I am only human”.

I was stuck in a mental rut, and it has taken me weeks to get back to a positive mindset. It has been so hard for me to stop focusing on what is happening in the present and focus on the positive that is to come in the near future (if that makes any sense at all). And I believe the reason for me having a “mental breakdown/blockage” is because I allowed myself to open up and get so comfortable with everything and everyone in my current situation, and I just have not been ready to let it all go.

So as I finally start to except that this season is over, I am slowly allowing myself to embrace the change and embrace all of the amazing opportunities that are coming my way. It is time to stop stressing and dwelling on the negative of the situation and really take my life head on and run with it in faith.

I am too blessed to be stressed!

Get your mind right Quote for MONDAY: 

“Be with those who bring out the best in you, not the stress in you.”

Hello Beautiful People and Happy Monday to you,

I had such a wonderful low key weekend, I just wish that I had one more day just to chill and relax. Maybe I should have called in sick to work today {Just Kidding} LOL!

I thought I would start the week off with one of my favorite quotes:

Lovelightcreative.com
LoveLightCreative.com

 

I am not sure who wrote it, but I found it on Pinterest from LoveLightCreative.com a while back and I used it as my lock screen image on my phone for a long time. Not sure why, but every time I read this quote I laugh so hard on the inside because 1. It is so funny to me and 2. It is so TRUE! As I mentioned in my very first GYMRM (Get your Mind Right Monday) post, I briefly touched on a situation where I allowed those around me to bring me down so far that it was so hard for me to bring myself back to life. Sometimes it is so easy to get caught up with people who are your “friends” but are secretly hoping you fail in life. Not intentionally but because they are miserable with themselves they naturally put that energy on you, and if you are around them like every day, you get sucked in to their negative pull.

So if you want to live a positive life and allow for positivity to penetrate your life; you should surround yourself with people who truly love and care about you and want to see you succeed in life, or surround yourself with like-minded people who are striving for the same goal or similar goals in life, business, or family as you are.

Let’s start the week by “being with those who bring out the best in you, not the stress in you”!

I hope you all have a VIVACIOUS week.

Get your mind right Quote for MONDAY: “Start each day with a grateful heart.” -Author Unknown

Hello Beautiful People!

I hope you Monday is off to a great start, I know mines is.

I had a wonderful weekend full of fun, laughter, and joy and not to mention it was Super Bowl weekend so there were a lot of shenanigans going on.

So the quote of the day for this Get Your Mind Right Monday is…drum roll please… “Start each day with a grateful heart”.

Gratitude = Positivity1

Being grateful or having gratitude for everything that you have in life is a staple of living a vivacious and happy life. Gratitude is such a strong feeling that allows you to attract positivity in your life like a sponge. So I challenge you to start everyday with a grateful heart by each day writing or even posting on  Social Media (Facebook, twitter, or Instagram) what you are grateful for in the following areas or your life:

  1. Family Life
  2. Personal Life
  3. Work/Professional Life

By the end of the week take time to asses how you feel and how your mindset has changed.

I hope you all have a beautiful and positive week.

Get your Mind Right Mondays – Rewind

Get your mind right Quote for MONDAY: 

“Tomorrow is a new day”.

Today was one of those days, you know those day that you wish you can press rewind and start all over again.

First of all I have not had a good night sleep in over 2 weeks and last night was no exception. My Monday morning started off so just not right, first I woke up later than I wanted to, then of course I couldn’t find anything to ware because I was totally having a “FAT” day. Oh did I mention that I forgot to put on make up, and by the time I remembered I was already running late and could not put my face together and/or grab my make up bag to apply it at work. It just seemed like one thing led to another today, and I could not shake the negativity that was coming my way.

All I kept thinking all day was that I wish I could press rewind and start this day all over. If I could only restart this day I could change the outcome of everything and shake the case of the Mondays. As today starts to come to an end, I have reminded my self that tomorrow is a new day. A day that I know will be an amazing day, because this Monday will be put in the past.

Thanks God for a new day!

I hope you all have a positive and fabulous week, now that Monday is behind us.
