It’s day 12 of the first 12 days of 2018 and for the 12 day reboot. I’m happy to say I stayed true to what I intended to do. I stood my ground and completed each day diligently. It feels good and for the 12th day we get to end it on a good note!!!! For today, it’s all about gratitude. Let’s give it up for all the wonderful things we have in our life. For starters, we can talk about just how lucky we are to be alive in this era. I mean, I’m talking to a wide range of people and getting my voice heard while sitting on my sofa in Paris. That’s amazing! I am thankful and grateful for so many things, but I would have to say the thing that tops my list the most is growth. I have come so far since starting this blog and I have to say, I am so happy to be in such a different place then I was a year ago. It feels amazing.
Honor thyself. And on the 8th day I honored my mind, body, and soul. Today it’s time to start being conscious of what is put into our body. Better eating habits are a great place to start and what better time then in the morning. Try eating some fruits, drinking some lemon water. Also a good stretch, some yoga poses can be amazing over time for the soul and body. Honor your needs and boundaries. If you don’t want to do somethings, don’t. If you need space from certain people, take the space. Just give yourself some moments to yourself. Honor whatever it is you need to do for yourself.
Purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka…no for real. For serious I’m just kidding, but today is one meant for purification. How does one purify their surroundings? You can do it a few ways…by cleaning your closet, taking a shower with the intention to cleanse your spirit, throw out broken items, delete old mean texts, delete mean old friends, just move on. Breathe in the goodness, exhale the bulls*t.
Being present in the theme for day 6. It’s one that I struggle with a lot. I think many people can relate, being actually present is too freaking difficult, especially if you constantly have a chattery mind. It’s easy to get swept up in our cell phones, social media, television, Netflix and just your average procrastination. What sucks is I’ve worked really hard to diminish my dependency on my phone when I’m around company. So far it’s been great, but sometimes I notice my company not doing the same. Which is a bit saddening, but that’s how things work now. With time and patience it’s definitely a possibly to jump the hurdle of forgetting the present and being actually present, but it’s worth it. Like Kanye said “my presence is a present” and that goes for how we treat our own present. It’s a gift and before we know it, poof, it’ll pass us by. So pay attention!
