Continual learning, on any level, is invaluable.
Broadening our knowledge builds our self-confidence.
New information can give us the confidence to set and reach new goals.
Keeping our brain active increases vitality.
Challenge your brain!
This pandemic, if anything, should have taught us how to keep life simple. Isolation afforded us time to review what is truly important to us personally.
Do not lose sight of these personal values.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
Sometimes our lives get stirred up. We worry because we feel we are losing control.
We have to determine what is in our control and what is not. Worrying about things we cannot change has no positive outcome but many negative side effects.
Our mind is a muscle. With practice, we can learn to release what we cannot control.
The four petals representing hope, love, gratitude and faith.
Hope gives us the drive to keep going.
Love for self helps us to set healthy boundaries.
Gratitude allows us to experience happiness.
Faith brings hope, love and gratitude together.
Trust in yourself.
HOPE, LOVE, GRATITUDE & FAITH
If you do not try, you will never know what is possible.
Do not fear failure. Failures are lessons to gain knowledge for moving forward.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
DON'T BE AFRAID
Embrace who you are. You are unique and this is beneficial.
Be your authentic self.
Trying to be someone else is exhausting, and you will never be able to keep up the façade.
Being your authentic self will allow you to do those things that YOU enjoy doing with the people that are right for you!
YOU ARE UNIQUE
Are the seeds (goals) you are planting based on your wants and needs, or are your goals inspired by the goals of friends and colleagues?
Any goal you strive to reach should be important to you. What is important to you?
GERMINATE YOUR SEEDS
Crying is an essential human expression. Tears can be a response to pain, happiness, frustration, sadness, grief and the list goes on.
Tears trigger the release of different hormones that can relieve stress, pain and assist us in relaxing.
Crying is not a sign of weakness. Go ahead and cry to heal and express your emotions!
GO AHEAD & CRY
Fear, whether tangible or intangible, is real when you are experiencing it.
Acknowledge your fears. Avoidance does not dissolve them.
Why are you fearful?
Can you rationalize your feelings?
Do your fears stem from protecting you from harm (are you in danger) or do they stem from self image (good enough, worthy enough, smart enough)?
If it is the latter, prove yourself wrong!
Set yourself free.
Be playful daily. Don't be so serious!
Let the inner child out........
Dance when carrying out mundane activities such as dusting or vacuuming.
See the world through the eyes of a child. Our world is full of wonder if we take the time to stop to pay attention. See the beauty in the snowflake, in the dewdrop on a leaf. Hear the music as the leaves rustle in the wind.
Do not be afraid to be spontaneous. Schedules are necessary in our busy world but we can still use spontaneity during playtime.
When are you having playtime today?
