Wellness Wednesdays – Feeling Brave

These last few weeks have been a whirlwind and I am really starting to feel brave in my ripe age of 30. Last week, I posted this blog to my network of friends which I was deathly afraid of. I’m going for an opportunity at work that I never thought would come available and never thought I’d be supported on – and I faced my fears of health and got blood work done to see if I am indeed healthy. 

ImageBeing Brave by releasing my blog: I decided I’m really going to put myself out there and not be embarrassed of who I am. I’m spiritual. I’m sober. I believe in God. I pray every night and meditate in the morning. I used to be afraid to admit these things to people – because I was afraid of judgement. With putting my fear aside, I may actually be able to help someone – which is a miracle. 

Being Brave at work: I get really uncomfortable with work stuff because I had a few rough spats in my career over the past 15 years. After a long journey, I’m in a job and company that I love and want to grow with.  After talking the talk of wanting to move up – I’m going for a new opportunity. Pretty rad, huh? Wish me luck! 

Being Brave at the Doctor’s: I was lucky to meet the fine folks over at Bloom Natural Health through my job.  It led to me doing a full bloodwork panel that I’ve never done before – because I was deathly afraid I was going to find out that I’m dying. I faced my fears and got my results back today. Surprisingly, I am not dying – and I am one healthy young lady, but I do have areas to work on. My brave face paid off and I feel so much better! 

So,  beautiful people, I encourage you to be brave.  Take chances. Face your fears.  In the end, you feel a hell of a lot better. Life is too short!

Release your fears in the comments section (and to the universe). 

3 Magic Words

ImageI had some time this morning so I put on the 3 Magic Words movie via Netflix while sipping on my hot water and lemon. Interesting concept…. Towards the end of the film, the 3 magic words are I-AM-GOD. The notion that we all are God is pretty profound if you ask me. Til this day, I still get a little weirded out when using the G-word around people – because I’m never sure on how others will react.  (As time goes on, it does get easier and all of my inner posse use the word all the time – AWESOME!) 

Here’s to say I was inspired.  We should all feel that God is within us and we have this crazy power each and every moment of the day. I’ve come to ask myself….How can I channel my inner goddess better? For starters, I can meditate and do yoga more – but maybe it’s talking more freely about spirituality and not caring about what others think. Also pump positivity in me through books, quotes, social media and throw all of the nonsense and gossip and not healthy stuff out the door. 

What’s your thoughts on this? I’d love to hear!
