Wisdom, what a word. It’s jam packed with so much. It’s so heavy. It’s one of those things I always picture a bearded man with a top hat giving advice. Or an ethereal black woman just spouting inspiration musings everywhere she goes when I think of this word. This is what we’re to focus on today. I say go talk to someone older and more wise than yourself. Heck, sometimes some of the best wisdom can come from your two year old nephew who reminds you to not hold grudges because, well, he doesn’t. One thing i would say, is to pay attention to that little voice in your head that talks to you. Your intuition. Try to start giving it the benefit of a doubt and see what comes up. Remembers, that voice will only give you things that will lead to good. Anything else is not the inner voice.
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!
