Caregiving

It is so important as a caregiver not to become so enmeshed in the role that you forget yourself. It's neither good for you nor your loved one.

Day 10- The Freedom Of Forgiveness

21 Days To Balance And Fulfillment in 2015

Happy Thursday everyone! I apologize about missing my post yesterday. I had to take a “timeout. I needed to rest, recharge, and think about how I wanted to approach a very important part of our journey to balance and fulfillment in 2015. Let’s talk about forgiveness.

Forgiveness is one of the most challenging things for people to do. It’s also something; I’ve really struggled with. I have carried my share of guilt over my feelings of resentment about being a caregiver. Contrary to what people believe, there are not many of us who aspire to have this rolelaughing.

Day 8- Invest In Yourself

23 Days To Balance and Fulfillment In 2015

Invest In Yourself

Happy Tuesday! I hope your day was great. I wanted to make sure I checked in to see how you’re doing. We’ve been on this journey for a week, and we’ve covered a lot of stuff. Are you feeling overwhelmed? I seem to find inspiration at odd times. So, I’ve been jotting down notes in my phone to keep track of my thoughts. Write down your thoughts, they are going to come in handy as we get closer to putting our plan for 2015 on paper.

If you’ve been scared to join the journey, or just overwhelmed by life like most of us; there’s still time for you to join in. Don’t be scared ;-). We’re in this together, I promise. Change can be painful and scary. But, you can’t keep doing the same thing and expect a different result. Something’s gotta give; and I want us all to be balanced and fulfilled in 2015. It’s time for us to live our best lives. We only have one shot.

So, let’s recap where we’ve been, before we move forward.

Day 7- A Little Helps Goes A Long Way

24 Days To Balance and Fulfillment in 2015

Happy Sunday everyone! I'm sure you're winding down preparing for the week to begin. Sorry, about the late post. But, I just got back from Diva St. Augustine. In St. Augustine, FL. It was amazing, and extremely hard at the same time. I've never been around so many wonderfully supportive people, all striving to achieve their goals. It's primarily a "race for the ladies". But, it was great to see men out there participating and cheering on the women they loved. Some ladies completed the 5K (3.1 miles), or the half-marathon (13.1 crazy miles!!). 

I did the 13.1 miles, and it was one of the hardest things I've ever done. But, I learned some valuable lessons on the journey today, that I know will help as we move forward to living our best lives. There are lessons all around you, make sure you're open to experience them.

Day 4- It’s Time To Learn A New Way!

27 Days to Balance and Fulfillment in 2015

Happy Thursday! Or better yet, “Happy Friday-Eve”! The countdown is beginning to the weekend, and my first half-marathon!! I can’t wait to share that experience with you. I’m nervous and scared, but super excited. This is one of my “bucket list” items about to come true! Just remember, all things are possible. So, I have one question for you today. “How are you feeling the day after?”

Yesterday, we focused all of our energy and love on someone that means the world to us. It was our moment to wake up, and realize that if we can lavish that much love on someone else. There is no reason why; we can’t do that for ourselves. But, before we begin making plans about what we want to do. We have to look at where we’re at right now. Let’s do a little exercise.

Day 3- The Awakening

28 Days to Balance and Fulfillment in 2015

Hello everyone! It’s Wednesday, the halfway point for the week. How’s your week going? There are so many things going on, and so many things to be thankful about. Gratitude changes attitudes. So, I wanted to take some of that positive “juju” to talk about another big part of the journey to balance and fulfillment in 2015. Let’s talk about the awakening of our heart’s desires.

How long has it been since you thought about what you really wanted out of life? Let me preface this question by mentioning that it has nothing to do with material possessions. Let’s put material possessions on the side for now. Don’t get me wrong; we all have bills. But, right now we need to feed the soul. Once the soul is fed, the cash will come.

I want to know about the goals and desires that are deep inside of your soul. The goals and desires that you know would be your life’s dream to achieve. What do you feel when you think about them? Do you feel this “pull” to achieve them? Do you say to yourself; “If I wasn’t a caregiver I could do this?” Or, always think of reasons why you’ll never be able to do it? Then, this post is for you & me.

The Awakening
                             Are you ready to awaken your soul to be #balancedfulfilled2015?
