Life is funny. It has these ways (sometimes subtle, sometimes anything but) of reminding you that you’re just where you’re meant to be in any given moment. Have you ever wondered if someone can hear all the things you say to yourself ? I used to wonder, too. But I know now the answer. The universe is listening to every thought, to every concern, to every worry your brain can come up with. And it’s sending you good vibes!
I have had ups and downs in life, just like anyone else. But during some of particularly low lows, I have sometimes allowed myself to wallow there. It feels easy to think that the world is against you. That you deserve to feel bad. That something is wrong with your life. And hey, maybe there is something wrong with your life — I know I can certainly improve mine, and work to do so just about every day.
The thing is — When you are in your lowest lows, you have two choices…
- Stay there and be miserable, stagnant, and unhappy.
- Get up and do something about it, and feel better.
Over the past year, I have gotten to know myself. You know this. I write about it all the time. But, since I figured out who it is that I am, and who it is that I want to be, I realized that I am a “get up and do something about it” kind of person, and really have been all along.
It’s easy to sit around and feel sad about your position in life, a tough break you caught (or a bunch of tough breaks you caught), how you don’t feel good, how you’re overweight, how you don’t have enough money, how you want things you can’t seem to find, the list goes on and on.
It’s harder to find a good connection between you and the universe, probably because it sounds kinda silly. BUT – I promise you, in the end, it’s worth being a little silly. Once you connect, ask the universe for advice, tell it what you want, and let it guide you. It wants you to succeed and live your best life! As you start to turn your momentum from bad to better to good, you will see the benefits of asking, believing, and receiving. This is a real thing ya’ll. And remember, whether you’re connecting to the universe or not, wherever you are right now…is exactly where you’re meant to be.
Today, I was a little down. I haven’t been feeling my best, I haven’t had good workouts in a bit, and I have been eating like garbage consistently for about 2 weeks. #badchoices #badmomentum
But you know what? I got really excited because I remembered I’ve started a new chapter in my life. I finally have a job where I can work from home. I have time to do personal things, as well as grow in my career. I can make ME a priority. I got out my notepad and made a trusty list of all the things I wanted to accomplish for the rest of the week, and do you know that I completed them all this afternoon? And the reason I was able to, is because I have time and I am working from home. It is an amazing feeling.
This week, I’m trying some new recipes. Even though some of my oldies in my repertoire would be easier and faster, I made a promise to branch out. And here I go, following through like a boss. I am on a new kick where I am pushing myself to eat more fruits and veggies, while still staying within my target macros. It’s a lot of math, ya’ll. And I hate math. It’s really not my thing. So planning for meals takes me a bit longer.
Here’s what’s coming up and I’ll be sure and keep you posted on my reviews of the recipes:
- Breakfast: Sweet Potato Hash
- Lunch: 20-Minute Mango Chicken Bowl
- Dinner: Citrus Kale Salad + Salmon seasoned with dill and lemon juice
- Snacks: Protein shake + hardboiled eggs, hummus with veggies, and nitrate-free turkey breast
Thanks for listening to my deep thoughts, guys. Be grateful every day!
