10 Things To Add To Your Self-Care Routine Today

1. Be kind to yourself - our words create our worlds. Use words that empower you rather than those that limit you. Instead of saying “I’m suffering” you can say “I’m in the process of healing”.

2. Treat yourself - you deserve it. Take yourself out on dates and spoil yourself with your favourite foods, movies & whatever else you love to do. This strengthens the relationship you have with yourself & invites more love into your life.

3. Spend time with those you love - surround yourself with positive energy. It’s pretty difficult to show yourself love when you’re surrounded by negativity. Spend time with those who make you forget to check your phone.

4. Be present with yourself - listen to your self-talk. Pay attention to the thoughts that run through your mind and observe the effect they have on your emotions.

5. Exercise - move into the body. Neglecting the body will result in poor physical & mental health over time - move into it to release energy that has been suppressed.

6. Healthy food - nourish your body & mind. The foods we eat will determine how we feel, both physically & mentally, choose the foods that will make you feel good.

7. Creativity - express yourself. Creativity is expression of the soul and can release built up energy that has been repressed inside of us - this is extremely important for self-care.

8. Nature - reconnect with yourself. When in nature observe how the animals & plants behave and see yourself reflected in them. The flowers are patient when waiting to bloom & the animals are totally present in the now.

9. Sleep - recharge your batteries. The most important aspect of self-care is knowing when you need to rest, sleep is vital for recovery of the body and our mind. You cannot feel well if you’re sleep deprived.

10. Mindfulness - be in the now. Looking after yourself means not missing out on life - when we spend any time outside of the present moment we waste our lives. Catch yourself when you project into the past or future and ground yourself in the now using your senses.

The root of all suffering is a lack of self-love.

Peace & positive vibes.

Reasons why Parks and Rec deserved an Emmy

- Set in small-town Indiana, still manages to have 40% of it’s ensemble cast be POC, and not one of them is a token either

- 40% of the cast are women. ¾ are POC. All of them are badasses. 

- Every single fucking episode is funny. Seriously. 

- Perd fucking Hapley. I can’t even explain, you just have to watch 

- Pawnee citizens holy hell 

- The flawless political commentary behind the Langman’s and the Male Men 

- The scene in Comeback Kid where Get On Your Feet is playing and they’re all struggling to walk on ice 

- Chris Traeger and his mental illness. They worked it in so that it was comedic, but if it glorified anything, it was asking for help and accepting it. 

- Okay just Chris in general 

- Gary Jerry Larry Terry Gary Gergich Gengurch Gergich 

- Donna, the character who is exactly who she needs to be throughout her life. She acknowledges the need to change her behavior occasionally, but it doesn’t dent her confidence one bit. 

- Ann Meredith Perkins, you beautiful sun-ray nurse. The best friend everyone needs. Quirky and grounded and intelligent. 

- THE FUCKING SAPERSTEINS 

- ESPECIALLY JEAN-RALPHIO 

- Everything Tom Haverford has ever said 

- Ben fucking Wyatt. I can’t even elaborate without crying and combusting. Much better nerd than any weasel from The Big Bang Theory. Feminist. Best Husband Ever. 

- ANYTIME BEN OR LESLIE ARE DRUNK HOLY SHIT 

- Cones of Dunshire and Requiem for a Tuesday 

- FUCKING ICE TOWN 

- April Blart, Mall Cop 

- April’s character development *heart eyes* 

- Andy and April’s love 

- Mouse Rat and hits like The Pit, Catch Your Dream, and - 5000 CANDLES IN THE WIND 

- LIL SEBASTIAN 

- Bert Macklin, FBI 

- Johnny and Johnathan Karate 

- Andy Dwyer, secret genius 

- Ron Swanson, the manliest man to ever man, owner of the world’s best character development, hater of Canada and vegans, beautiful beautiful man 

- Duke fucking Silver 

- I dig your groovy tunes man

- Ben and Leslie’s healthy, realistic, and beautiful relationship 

- Benslie proposal 

- Benslie wedding 

- Ben’s triplets freakout 

- the BOX 

- Amy Poehler plays the most amazing woman to ever grace any screen. Leslie Knope, a socially inept but selfless woman who dedicates her life to public service, her family, and her friends. Deeply flawed main character that wasn’t made lovable by her unfortunate but relatable love of sugar and hatred of vegetables, but instead by her love for others and thoughtfulness and work ethic and optimism. Food habits aside, her character flaws were acknowledged by the writers, her loved ones, and her. No one is an enabler for Leslie Knope’s bad behavior. When she does something shitty, she gets called on it and apologizes. But at the end of the day, hard work and positivity make a difference, and she achieves her dreams. 

- Positivity. The people on this show like each other. They believe in and support each other. They apologize when they’re wrong. They forgive when they’ve been wronged. They go out of their way to make lives better. And it is still funny.

4 Signs The Law Of Attraction Is Working

 So you’re on the path to manifesting your dreams, great! But how do you know it’s working? Here are some things to look out for while you’re on the journey but keep in mind that anything that comes easy isn’t worth having and anything that’s worth having doesn’t come easy.

1. Synchronicities - you might be noticing number synchronicities such as 11:11 or 22:22 etc on the clock. You will start experiencing more “coincidences” like thinking about a person and then they suddenly appear in your path - this is a prime example of a synchronistic experience. Take them as signs you’re manifesting that which you’re seeking.

2. Meetings - you’re meeting different people and having more meaningful interactions that reflect where you’re going in your life. For example if you’re trying to manifest spiritual growth and you meet someone who just came back from the Peruvian jungle who shares their journey of spiritual growth with you.

3. Opportunities - after deciding what you want to manifest and using your actions to bring it into existence opportunities to do so will present themselves. This might take the form of people coming into your life and inviting you to do things with them or ads you see online - it’s different for everyone.

4. Feelings - you’re using your intuition more, feelings of being “drawn” to do things or go places without any other explanation. This is the universe trying to guide you toward manifesting your true desires based on your vibration. Listen to your intuition - it’s your inner guidance system.

If you haven’t seen any of these signs yet - don’t panic - there are others I haven’t mentioned, but these are quite clear signs that a big change is coming. Use your words, as well as your actions, to aid you in the process of manifestation - instead of saying “I don’t have it” say “I am in the process of acquiring it”.

If you want your life to change - start by changing yourself.

Peace & positive vibes.

6 Self-love Principles To Practice Daily

1. Perception - how we see ourselves. When we want to heal ourselves we must learn to see ourselves with unconditional positive regard - no judgements, no shame and no resentment. We are perfect exactly as we are - nothing external will ever be able to add or remove value from us.

2. Acceptance - making peace with the past. The most powerful healing benefits of self-love can come from removing the judgements we hold towards ourselves and we do this by accepting that everything that has happened so far has shaped us into who we are today. It was necessary for our journey.

3. Meditation - checking in with ourselves. Being present with ourselves is a key component of self-love as it allows us to observe the thoughts that dominate our minds - which is what our reality is based on. Checking in with ourselves regularly allows us to make sure we’re on the path we resonate with the most.

4. Health - nourishing the body & mind. Self-love requires us to exercise and feed the body with the foods that are of the most benefit to us - feeding the body toxic drugs & processed foods is the opposite of self-love. When we embark on the healing journey we must take responsibility for how we think & feel and act in the way that serves our highest good.

5. Creativity - allowing our emotions to be expressed. Drawing, singing, dancing and cooking are all forms of self-love because we’re allowing our emotions to be freely expressed. Emotions are energy in motion and when we trap them within the body they can manifest in poor mental & physical health - hence why it’s important for them to be expressed in one form or another.

6. Positive energy - choosing the people, places & things that make us feel good. Loving ourselves means refusing to settle for unfulfilling relationships & only spending time with those who deserve a place in our lives. We are worthy of being surrounded by those who make us feel good and we do not have to settle for anything less.

See yourself with unconditional positive regard.

Peace & positive vibes.

8 Truths You Need To Know To Become Successful

1. There is no such thing as “I don’t have time” - we make time for what is a priority in our lives. If you don’t want to make time for it - it’s not a priority, so you cannot make the excuse that you don’t have time to chase your dreams.

2. Failure doesn’t exist - you either win or you learn. If you view every mistake as a failure and get disheartened - you will be likely to give up. See each “failure” as a learning experience.

3. Let things go - if you’re holding on to the past or things people have done to you then you are allowing them to take up your time. Time that you could be using to create a new life - instead of holding on to the one you have.

4. Expectations lead to disappointment - not everyone has the same heart as you - some will seek to take advantage of your good nature. When you do things for others with the expectation they will reciprocate this can lead to disappointment.

5. Appearances don’t matter - focusing on your outer appearance and neglecting how you feel is a great way to manifest poor mental & physical health later on in life. Focus on how things make you feel rather than how they look to the outside world.

6. Control is an illusion - you didn’t know when you were going to be born and you don’t know when you’re going to die. There are many things we cannot control, focus on what you can control - your actions - to create success.

7. Worrying creates problems - worrying about the future creates problems that don’t even exist yet. Use your actions to create a future where those problems don’t exist.

8. Problems = growth - through every tough time there comes a valuable lesson. See your problems as stepping stones to the growth you’re seeking and greet them with open arms. Release resistance to what you perceive as problems and look forward to the lessons you will learn.

Why Being A “Nice Person” Will Make You Miserable

 You don’t love yourself if you’re setting yourself on fire just to keep others warm. Just because you’re prepared to go out of your way to help others - doesn’t mean they will do the same for you. One of the biggest mistakes you can make in this life is believing everyone has the same heart as you. 

Being a “nice” person in the hopes that others will reciprocate can lead to them abusing your kind nature. They do this because they do not appreciate what you do for them - they have become entitled to your energy and expect you to continue go out of your way for them whilst neglecting yourself.

If you’ve been behaving this way so far - assess your life right now, how has it worked out for you so far? Are you surrounded by people who don’t do much for you? Are you tired and drained and wish someone would be there for you for once? Do you wish one of them would reciprocate what you do for them?

It’s time for you to start taking responsibility for how you feel and recognise your true worth. If you are prepared to do so much for others - why not do that for yourself? Prioritise yourself - do things that make you happy - and be unapologetic about it if they ask why you aren’t behaving the way you used to.

Life is too short to live it for anyone but yourself. Your time on the planet is limited and if you spend it trying to please others - who will make sure you’re pleased? Take a look around and ask yourself why you’re being so “nice” to everyone and see who’s reciprocating exactly what you do for them.

Self-love is all about making sure you are feeling good about who you are and what you do. Loving your life starts with loving yourself and you cannot do that when you prioritise others. Fill your own cup first - when it overflows, then you can allow others to drink from your abundant fountain of love.

You can’t pour from an empty cup - love yourself first.

Peace & positive vibes.
