Hard Work, Passion and Getting Things Done

#MondayMotivation

This weekend was a great weekend for my girls. An awesome 800m win and a brutal win for my soccer girl and her team. But the weeks leading up to this weekend included a lot of tears, injuries, breakdowns and good old fashion hard work. They made it and this weekend proved that their passion and hard work would pay off. Now we can move forward with bigger and more challenging goals. Remember to be realistic, believe in yourself and never EVAH give up! Happy Monday!

Exercising Your Inner-Strength

IMG_3252.jpg

Exercising your inner strength. I am happy to see black people, young people and women standing up for what they believe in and exercising their voices.

When you exercise your voices, you are exercising your inner strengths openly.

Same holds true for women who have been broken down through relationships, jobs and/or health-related issues. Being broken should not stop anyone, especially women, from moving forward. I believe things happen in order for people to see the world differently.

As human beings, we are so use to seeing a bad situation, as a bad situation instead of seeing it as part of a learning process. I'm not saying getting abused or sick has the golden answer to life behind it but when sh$t happens, reality sets in and things HAVE TO CHANGE. Yes, the process can be hard and sometimes unbearable but when a person decides to push through, other people are inspired to do the same.

WHEN YOU ARE "BROKE DOWN", I suggest...

  1. Write down what/who broke you down.

  2. Write down how it made you feel and just sit with it.

  3. Sit with it for an hour, half a day OR a week, but don't forget to write down WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT. There is a solution! 

  4. Find the solution, a healthy solution that will benefit you mentally, physically and spiritually.

  5. Do the work and believe in the process. Even when you feel like crap, keep moving forward.

  6. GOOD OPTION. Don't fight your battles alone. Find good, positive and trust-worthy people to help you. YOU CAN DO IT!

ALLOW YOUR LIGHT TO SHINE...

 
 

Last week... 

...I had a little extra time to get out, do something a little different and meet new people. I ran with a new running group on Tuesday night, met with a  new group of women from a local San Diego Volunteer group and ended the week with a very charismatic UBER driver! My goal was to make sure EVERY DAY was a good day, no matter what was going on in my life and I have to say, it worked!

Now, don't get me wrong, there were a number of things that went wrong this past week. Things that would make a person go a little nuts but I refused to go there! Once I slowed down and took a different approach, I came to the conclusion that every problem has a solution. Staying calm, thinking it out and making rational decisions without all the emotion saved a lot of time and frustration.

How are you feeling today? Where is your spirit?

How are you facing your challenges in life? Whether it's work, family, a co-worker or simply improving your lifestyle, how does it effect YOU? How does it effect your spirit? If your spirit is not positive, usually your day is not positive. Only you control how you feel, so let's try a few things to be positive and stay there.

5 things to stay focused and stay positive...

  • Pray and Meditate

  • Talk it out with a good, friend

  • WORKOUT (Dancing your troubles away can be very effective)

  • Write it out

  • Simply make the decision to STAY POSITIVE right NOW.

A Day Without A Woman

I am blessed to have everything I have, yet, there are so many women who need more. They need jobs, equality and affordable health insurance. They are not only working hard to take care of themselves but for those around them. Not many of us run a country but we do run our environment; we are needed. Women need to be heard so that we can create a better world for everyone. #ADayWithoutAWoman will call attention to economic injustices women face such as lower wages, gender discrimination, sexual harassment and job insecurities. The day is also intended to push for gender justice, recognizing that trans and gender non-conforming people face equally compelling issues of discrimination and marginalization.
