WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
You better go out there and shine or you’ll die never experiencing life!
Don’t think twice!
If you do you’ll pay the price!
What the fuck are you waiting on?
Don’t think twice! DO NOT THINK TWICE!
You owe yourself the opportunity to be you!
TO BE FREE!
You’ve worked hard – let’s win!
Here…right now….is your victory!
As I sit in the coffee shop, gathering a thought or two trying to figure out how to deal with this being twenty six shit.
I remember at some point in my teen years I would daydream about being at this point and how amazing it would be. I dreamed of being with my soul mate. Being a full time writer. Having all my shit together. Shit I even dreamed of having children by now. No one ever said “girl bye, it don’t work like that.” There was no blueprint, no magical map that pointed me in the direction of any of this shit. Nothing can prepare you for life better than LIFE.
I haven’t found my soul mate but I have loved up on myself more than I could have ever imagined I would when I was 13. I don’t have children and I am happy about that. I never wanted a situation like my childhood (absent father) so I chose to wait. I never wanted to settle and that’s why the soul mate shit is somewhat a fairytale in my eyes. No one prepares you for multiple heartbreaks. No one prepares you for losing friendships. No one prepares you for the breakdown. No one prepares you for the come up. You just deal. It shapes your character, your morals.
You eventually learn that the path your walking is a path of choices. No you don’t get a fairy godmother. You get LIFE. As I’m still trying to figure shit out I will remember that it’s some mystic shit..some things you can’t predict. Some things you’ll imagine but won’t happen but that’s okay… your okay.
It’s okay to block out what needs to be blocked out so you can shine your light the way you see fit.
Well here I am in France, I forgot to buy a yoga mat and I can’t understand a word the instructors are saying so I decided to skip the studio for now and practice at my hostel.
Only thing is I forgot my mat. For one I didn’t have the energy to lug around a mat nor did I want to take the chance of leaving it in France. So I went ahead and left it back in Detroit.
Every time I travel I make sure to find the nearest yoga studio so I don’t skip a beat in my practice because to me it literally is my food, my medicine and my sanity.
Shit and after a 8 hour flight, a four hour train ride and a whole lot of frustration I needed to practice right away. Right away before I lost my damn mind.
So I waited until everyone cleared out the room this morning and I grabbed my towel, laid it out on the floor and hit child pose.
So yes, the moral of the story is….grab that damn towel and practice! You don’t need a fancy mat to practice your practice and you damn sure don’t need to go without your practice because you forgot your Lulelemon at the crib.
If it was warmer here and there was some damn grass I would have practiced in nature (it’s the most comfortable.)
Other thing you can do when you have forgotten your yoga mat and you don’t want to practice bare or on the grass….do all standing postures. Standing postures are about 85% of your practice anyway so go for it!
Don’t We All Just want to be Happy?
Two weeks ago I started to listen to the UK podcast called “Zestology” with Tony Wrighton. The show focuses on living with positive energy, vitality, motivation, health, confidence, great sleep and more.
I listened anxiously hoping to find tools that would lead me to a little more balance as we are heading into the middle of the semester. Things are picking up and energy is spreading pretty thin. I kept hope alive as I scrolled through all 87 of Tony’s podcast.
Every one caught my attention so I started from the introduction and worked my way up. Zestology focuses on shows that literally motivate you to live in balance. Nothing is easy but with a few tips we are guaranteed to move in a upward direction.
One of my favorite episodes talked about the “7 Secrets of Happiness” with author Gyles Brandreth. Brandreth highlighted the everyday challenges that people all over the world face, rather it was work stress, school stress, family stress or stress that just comes from the lack of having something you want in this life.
“I can not only be expanding your life but I could be also extending your life by seven to ten years,” Brandreth says as he starts to share a few of the seven secrets with the listeners.
The first secret included “be a leaf on a tree,” – free flowing, unique and strong. Be attached to a larger growing organism. Second secret included compassion and passion, compassion among others and having passions that motivate you and radiate you. “Essentially you need a passion to sustain you, when things go wrong,” or in general. Brandreth went on to talk about the other secrets to a beautiful happy life.
I enjoyed this podcast among the other episodes. They all had a wonderful tone that kept me interested and motivated. I recommend anyone who is interested in gathering happiness tools to listen to this.
I have always wanted to start a podcast especially over the last couple of months. I am tuning in to a lot of different shows to gather ideas on tones, themes and etc.
I will continue to keep up with Zestology, because its simply beneficial to my everyday life.
Take a listen on Spotify and tell me what you think.
To all people.
To all parts of the Earth, may peace manifest into every corner of of our hearts and our spaces.
Protection over our spirit and our mental.
We are witnesses of our reality that we try to shape positively in our daily lives.
May we elevate and never have to suppress our happiness.
We are light beings and we walk as such.
We attract abundance in the most gracious, humble and honored way and we receive what we put out.
We waste no words on negativity and we damn sure don’t accept it.
We rise, heal and become more powerful.
Never doubt it.
Peace and Love everyone, here is ElevateDailyy’s new logo, I want to know what you think of the concept.
As a lot of you may know I am a lover of the eye of protection…this isn’t quit the Egyptian Horus Eye but it will be used for some of the same purposes.
This logo represents ELEVATION, hence the half triangle at the top. The bottom half triangle represents “as above so below.” We must elevate from the crown to the root and to the root to the crown in order for us to elevate in balance.
Hope you enjoy.
Please comment below.
Right to the right.
Two eyes closed, only one needed to see.
Right in alignment capable to be free.
To find the freedom in just walking with the Earth.
Not judged. Not polluted.
Stripped of the past.
What is the future?
Not having to ask this question because only now is needed to be.
I know it’s a difficult science experiment we living.
Day by day stacking…climbing…clawing even.
I tell you though trying to solve the biggest mystery we have ever laid our naked eyes on will take many lifetimes, many kalpas, many s’aiyes to solve.
But what if that’s just what it needs to be. It needs to be a mystery in order to live on.
Everyone wants to know what this life thing is about but not take the time to look outside for clues, enjoy the mysteries.
Enjoy walking the Earth connecting your sole receiving messages that carry you to the next phase.
Unlocking with ease, with gentleness.
