Lets face it, we can try as hard as we can to have every day be a good day...but reality is we all get caught up in a funk from time to time. Don't fight these funks. Instead, embrace them. Acknowledge the emotions you are feeling and let them flow. There is an opportunity for growth in everything we experience.
For the past 6 months I have been devouring every bit of info I can get my hands on that relates to personal and spiritual growth. Ive learned so much and have witnessed a transformation within myself. My new knowledge was recently put to the test when I found myself in a funk for no apparent reason. Everything that could make me happy in life is right in front of me, so why do I feel depressed, sad, and lonely?!
I couldn't answer those questions so I just decided to embrace them. Feeling the feels but not holding onto them. Just letting them come, then go like a cloud passing by. I didn't own those feelings because I knew deep down that if I did, I would become sad, lonely and depressed everyday instead of just for a fleeting few moments of my life.
The old me would become my thoughts...the new me now, knows better than to let that happen. After letting all the emotions I was experiencing come and go, I decided to change my perspective. I decided every time I would have a negative thought I would replace it with a thought of something I love, am grateful for or something that makes me happy.
Once you start to focus on love and happiness instead of negativity and sadness, you will transform your life! You too have the chance to transition back to your child like state of being ( unadulterated love and happiness) that is all inside each and every one of us...even as busy adults!
Top 5 ways to un-funk your funk:
1. Sit down and write 100 things you are grateful for
2. Transition your thought process from negative to positive
3. Watch funny YouTube videos- laughter is magical!
4. Reconnect with nature and disconnect from social media/technology
5. DANCE LIKE NO ONE IS WATCHING (my favorite)
From my growth, comes an opportunity to teach. What a blessing! Remember that you are a divine being with the power to do/create/be ANYTHING you wish to be! Don't ever let someone tell you otherwise.
All my love,
As I am sure you've heard, fresh juice is now "trending." How awesome for something so healthy to be viewed as something so cool!
I have been juicing (almost) everyday for the past 4 months and Ive never felt better! I encourage you all to give it a try! You don't need an expensive juicer, just one that works.
Some benefits from juicing:
Strawberry Beet Juice:
8 large carrots
3 stalks celery
1 small piece tumeric root
1 large (l like it spicy) piece ginger
1 peeled green apple
1 peeled lemon
2 peeled cucumbers
This recipe is great for kids too! My youngest daughter Josie guzzled her glass down. If you give it a try, let me know how you liked it!
Remember, your body is your temple. Honor it with great pride.
