Some days are a walk in the park – literally. Other days – not so much. There have definitely been days during this pandemic where this is the last thing I wanted to do 🤷♀️ but here in Kansas City the weather is getting cooler so it’s prime time to enjoy fresh air without sweating my face off. 😅 Baker and I are taking full advantage before winter hits! Also, congratulations everybody on making it a full seven months during a global pandemic! Regardless of everything happening right now, it’s always important to think about the things that we are looking forward to that fill our cups, instead of focusing on what depletes them. My thing I’m most looking forward to? FALL. Give me all things pumpkin and football. 🍁 🎃 🏈 What is the thing that you’re most looking forward to? Drop it below and let’s feed off of each other‘s positivity. 😍 ((Also - Baker is such a goofy boy. ) ) #kansascitymo #havealittlefaith #encourageyourself #encourageothers #encouraged #encourager #encouragementquotes #dailyencouragement #womenlivingwell #gracenotperfection #dailygratitude #makethemostofeveryday #appreciatethelittlethings #findhappiness #createyourreality #bepresentinthemoment #presentoverperfect #findjoy ⠀ #seekthegood #lookforthegood #findthepositive #meditateonthis #bepresentinthemoment #mindsetmastery #selfawarenessjourney #inspiredaction #growthroughit
anyone else get super frustrated when they mess up their handwriting?! or is that just me 🙋🏻♀️🙈. it frustrates me daily 🤣 I’ve been a little turned around these past two days with my unplanned days off of working out. the feeling of defeat was definitely knocking on my brain + it felt super compelling to let it it. to let my list of complaints and anger and frustration FLOW. I’m sure you know the feeling too but if I’ve learned anything this past year and a half, it’s that I actually get to choose to see the good instead. to remind myself that there can be blessings in the “whoops” + disappointments of life. so while I may not be working out, I get to still fuel my body well. I get to sleep in a little bit more. I get to move a little slower. all blessings IF I choose to look at them that way!
Anyone else feel a little strange today waking up? It feels a little like we are on the brink of more change....just not sure what’s round the corner!! Or maybe that’s just how I’m feeling!! I’m focusing on what I know, and the positives in life right now of which, when we look around, there are many!! I personally need a little reboot, physically, mentally and emotionally. Anyone else?! I’m planning to have a week of adding something positive/beautiful into my life....so if anyone would like to join me, let me know! More details to follow 😊 #littletherapyspace #mentalhealth #positivevibes #positiveenergy #positivementalattitude #reboot #addpositivity #seekthegood #dothistogether #supportoneanother #reachout #youarenotalone #youareenough #olney #bedford #northampton
Swapping my morning screen time for me time. I’m embarrassed to say that my phone usage averaged 5 hours a day last week. As much as a big part of that is work, and lots more is stolen minutes in between other things (multi-tasking is not your mental health friend ), that is a BIG ole chunk of life. Imagine what I could do with an extra 5 hours a day?! Even half of that. So instead of imagining, I’ve been swapping my morning doomscrolling for the gym. I’m taking a very gently, gently approach - but the difference it makes being away from all the insanity on socials to focusing on mental and physical health is phenomenal. It’ll still be there when I get back... and while I can’t always change the world, I can work on changing my own world. Join me - swap your screen for something productive this week! 💪🏼 . #switchoff #mentalhealth #lookafteryourself #hanginthere #seekthegood
Peaceful moments are so important.
This is one of my favorite pioneer era quotes. During this time of quarantine, stress, and a slower pace of life, I have been thinking about this quite a lot. Am I using this time to draw closer to God? Am I using this time to grow as a person? Am I choosing during this time to see the good and give thanks for my blessings? Am I allowing this to be a time to be the price I pay to become acquainted with God? Let’s look for the good, my friends. Let us love our God and serve one another. It’s the only way to peace. I love you all. #ejpay #embroidery #newskill #handmade #servegod #seekthegood #bethegood #bethechange #pioneer #choose #be #become #lifeisaboutbecoming #quote #life #live #love #serve #loveoneanother #serveoneanother #service #praise #joy #seek #find #knock #given

Gentlemen, be clothed in the Lord's Majesty! Fall is here! It is my favourite season, both in style and in meaning. The changing colour of leaves, the (sometimes sudden ) temperature, moments to cozy up and drink something warm (except PSL, non-starter ). It's a reminder that we need to change, hopefully for the better. Just as the seasons change, so do our souls need to undergo conversion and transformation. Our own natures need to conform to the will of the Father, to achieve our greatest version of ourselves - sainthood. God be with you always! __ #sundaybest #catholiclife #catholicstyle #catholicman #catholicmen #catholicgentleman #catholic #catholics #católicos #cattolica #katolikindonesia #katolik #catolicos #katolicyzm #katholik #católica #iglesiacatólica #igrejacatolica #catholicyoungadults #strivingforgreatness #strivingforsainthood #beasaint #becatholic #tradcatholic #filipinocatholic #catholicblogger #catholicblog #seekthegood #catholicyyc
😊Happy World Gratitude Day!🥳 🎉Here are a few things I'm grateful for today. You can find a blank template in my stories to share what you're grateful for right now.🎉 In this time of 🧪COVID-19, I've made gratitudes a part of my regular daily routine 📚. I start the morning off (albeit not 💯% of the time because I'm not perfect and that's okay! ) with a visualization/gratitude practice that includes prompting questions to get me in the right mindset to take on the day in a positive way ✔. 🌜At the end of the day, I write down 10, yes 10, things I'm grateful for. A lot of them are things that happened to me throughout the day 🗓. Actually you could even call it 12 because I make 2 gratitudes very specific 👩💼- what did I do today that I'm grateful for in regards to self-care and my business venture? I had started with 3, went to 4 and then made the jump to 10 (or 12 )‼ I'll tell you, the surface gratitudes like you see in this post quickly turn into more specific things when you need to do 10 unique ones 😲 each day! Some days the self care and biz ones are repeats from before - if anyone has great self-care tips I'm all 👂ears, love learning new methods and discussing this important topic with others. BUT I'm so grateful for this practice 😊 I feel it's been the best thing I could do to get me through this wild year. #gratefulforgratitude When you feel grateful, you can't feel angry 😡, anxious, depressed or anything but good. And I think it's so fitting that today is also the International Day of Peace 🕊 as I believe gratitude is essential to peace. Check out my latest post @letslaughyeg on how laughter brings about peace ✌ There really is so much to be grateful 🙏 for and I think we really do take many things for granted. And it isn't completely our fault, society has conditioned us to go go go, always seek 👀 more, never stop and sit still long enough to look around and recognize what we already have. As we come into 🍂fall and the season of 🦃Thanksgiving, I'm thinking of sharing some of my COVID lockdown gratitudes, is that something you would want to see 🤷♀️? Let me know in the comments below and share what you are grateful for❣

Do you celebrate life? What are your plans for today? One of my favorite movies is COCO, #diademuertos , the teaching of the celebration of life and death. Both significant! Both energy. Energy is never created or destroyed it is only transformed from this life to another dimension. We are magnificent beans made of energy. Eternal, infinite light sources! ✨💫 Our greatest power is being in the NOW, appreciating the wonders in this moment! What are your plans for today?

I'm torn between finding the smoke beautiful and also knowing it's a result of destruction and devastation. The other day, a friend told me, "you're not supposed to find beauty in hell." I told him that I try to find beauty everywhere. Life is hard and heavy and painful. Sometimes it's too much to bear. If I don't spend time looking for the good and the beautiful, the weight of the world will crush me. There is always a reason in life to be burdened, discouraged, broken, disheartened, angry, etc. But there's also always a reason to be grateful. Both/and All/nothing That's life. Tell me something good in your life right now, something you're grateful for, something at brings you joy or hope or peace or balance.
Let's keep going in our 5 easy steps to start planting seeds. You picked your type of seed and situation to apply it to (Steps 1 & 2 ). Step 3: Now look for opportunities to do it! Watch for your kids doing it too - and when you see it, call it out!👍 So, for example, I want to plant seeds of time at bedtime. I want to connect more and be present. 💙 My step 3 will include looking for ways to intentionally connect and be in the moment at bedtime. 🌱 I will also look for the boys doing what they're supposed to do and encourage them and thank them. 👏 I am a believer that we find what we look for. So look for the good and call it out! Your kids will be excited and do more of it! 😀 And by you actively seeking opportunities to plant the seeds that you want to grow, you will start finding them and growing. 🌱 Double tap if you believe that you will find what you look for! And if you're looking for more examples and want to dive a little deeper, join us in our Facebook community for my live tomorrow night.

Some days you really just run on Jesus and dry shampoo, am I right? 💕 ⠀ ⠀ This morning in my daily Bible reading, I was led to Amos 5:14 - “Seek good, and not evil, that you may live; and so the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you, as you have said.” (ESV )⠀ ⠀ Now, the phrase “so that you may live” was probably literal in the context of what was going on in Amos, but hear me out. When we seek good, we truly live life as it was meant for us to live. ☺️ But if we focus on everything that is wrong with the world, with our lives, we won’t experience the fullness of what God has for us each day. And if we don’t experience that, are we truly living? That’s why it’s so important to spend time in the Word, to keep a gratitude journal, and lean on God when things get tough. Taste and see that the Lord is good! ❤️ #tuesdaythoughts ⠀ ⠀ Tell me something good that happened today in the comments and spread the positivity! 💓 #seekthegood
