Fearless in 2016

Be Fearless with Vivaciously Savvy

Hi Friends,

With the new year in full swing, I am already struggling to live up to my word for the year.

For those of you who don’t know, I am not the type of person to make New Year’s resolutions. I just do not believe setting New Year’s resolutions are realistic. Just because a new year is starting does not mean that it is the only time of the year that you can “start over”, set new goals, or start with a fresh clean slate for yourself. I fully believe that you can make a fresh new start and set new goals for yourself at any point in the year. You just have to make the conscious decision to make the change in your life.

Instead of setting New Year’s resolutions for myself, I chose to focus on a word for the year and do my best to define the word for myself and take actions in my daily life based on the word that I have chosen. And my word for 2016 is….

FearlessThis whole being fearless thing is so much harder than I thought. We are only a few weeks in to the New Year and I find myself struggling to release the fear, worry, and anxiety from my life. All I want to do is to be able to shake it off (as Taylor Swift “Shake It Off” plays in my head). There were so many events last year that contributed to my fear and worry being at an all-time high and causing me to have full blown anxiety. All I want to do this year is focus on releasing my fear, because in doing so I will be worry and anxiety free.

It’s time to Let Go and Let God! And I know through faith and focusing on gaining a greater relationship with God I know that through him there is nothing to fear.

So for those of you that are going through the same thing and wantto release the fear within, here are a few daily affirmations that I focus on throughout my day that help put me in a positive mind frame and help me to release any tension within my body:

  1. All of the muscles in my body are releasing and relaxing.
  2. I am free of anxiety, and a calm inner peace fills my mind and body.
  3. I will have a positive attitude and be hopeful and optimistic today. Those who do are the happiest and most successful people in life.

Also, for me it helps when I take time to do a bit of bible journaling or just journaling my thoughts and feelings.

Embrace New Beginnings

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.
