Over the last couple of months, my life has changed a lot. From marking the 2 year anniversary of me working at my amazing job. Losing a few close people to gain new people. Finding peace and strength while going through hardship and struggles. All while doing it with a smile, every single day. I say all that to say my absence from Redefinelove.blog was not on purpose but it was for the better.
While I was gone from my lovely blog, I marked 2 years with WordPress which is also something to celebrate when your hobbies change a lot. I tend to get bored with a lot of things but for some reason, I’m still committed to this blog. It just so happens life responsibilities got in the way.
Shall we do a little recap!
Last blog, I talked about heartache. I was going through it with losing a very dear friend. I’m here to let you know, I’ve found peace with that and have moved on to be grateful for the time we had. The good and the bad.
Now let’s get to the good stuff, Shall we!
What’s been going on?
First, I’ve been reading more books. Mostly on self development and women empowerment. All while empowering my lovely students to do the same. I read a book called The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. I have to say it changed my perspective on how I look at life. In return, it led to me reading the other two (The Power, and I’m currently reading a book called The Magic.) I have to say these books changed my life. I found peace knowing that you can only attract what you give your attention to. Negative attention attracts negative attention. Positive attention attracts positive attention. This is the law of attraction.
In the end, if you don’t want something to be attach to you don’t give it a second thought. While I was stressing myself out over small things. I could have just simply stopped giving it attention altogether. Plus, the pressure and the stress would have ceased. I would have been a lot happier had I just focused my attention elsewhere.
Now every morning, I wake up the first things that comes out of my mouth is thank you and today will be a good day. I try to attract positive energy from the time I wake up to the time I go to bed. Also, I learned that you can’t take on everyone else’s problems. You can listen but you can’t try and fix it. It is not meant for you to fix. I’ll say that again it is not meant for you to fix. Yes by nature we are fixers, we think if someone is telling us their problems we should automatically jump in and fix them. Not how life works. Let me tell you! You just end up taking on the world’s problems and not having enough problem-solving skills for that. Who got time for that! In other words, biting off more than you can chew. 🙂
Yes, be the ear but not the fixer. What else has been going on? Oh, I worked my first summer as a full time working woman. That was fun and trying at the same time. This is also the time I found my peace of mind. The new school year started this month (September 2019). I was refreshed and ready to tackle whatever came my way because of a little five-letter word called peace.
So far we are now entering our 2nd full week of school and I know it’s going to be a good school year. I’m not stressing over things I can’t change just making sure I’m doing my job effectively and keeping my students safe. Everything else will just have to figure itself out. This newfound peace and freedom has made my glow come back and has made me a happier individual.
Words of encouragement…..time:
As you set out on your day/ evening, know that you are doing ok. Let yourself find peace in whatever you put your footprint on. No matter what it is. Stay positive and be grateful for everything.
I think i’m going to do a book nook on this blog….. not sure yet. I would like to make it fun and brighten it up a little bit. I provided the links for all the books I’ve read and currently reading. if you want to check them out. 🙂
Until next time,
