PATIENCE IS NATURAL | #TEASPIRATIONTHURSDAY

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.

—Ralph Waldo Emerson

Patience Quote Ralph Waldo Emerson: Adopt the pace of nature

Over the course of many seasons, I have learned to dance the ballet of patience. When Spring begins her rise above the horizon we begin to sow our good seeds. Mother nature’s seeds that dropped in Autumn and lay dormant though Winter take up root. When Summer ascends all Spring sowings and roots bud and ripen, and we start harvesting. Then comes Summer’s Eve, and we take to sowing and planting that which will be harvested as the leaves commence to falling. Autumn’s beginnings mark its ending as we harvest what is good and start preparing for the time of resting, reflecting, and preparing. We welcome Winter with the Winter Solstice — the dying of the Sun on the Southern Cross or Crux constellation. Know, even our Sun has patience as it rests at its lowest point for three days before beginning its rise on what we call Christmas Day. Our days begin to lengthen once more foreshadowing Spring’s return. We lay in patience and in wait just as those seeds which fell in Autumn.

Welcome to Spring! May your harvest this year be abundant!

2019 ABUNDANCE

How much time and energy and precious breaths are you going exhaust trying to maintain the separation of your array of colliding parts? 

There is a temple to be rebuilt. You are the first and last architect. First, you must tear down all of your walls. You must expose the various cracks in your sinking foundation to the eye of the sun. Allow your leaks to be drained dry by the pull of the moon. Patch all that leaves you feeling crumbly with mortar conjured from the blood of your tears—only then can you begin to rebuild. Only then can light shine through and out of the transparency of your opaque prism.

♥ All is Abundance ♥

It has taken me a lifetime up until a point not long ago to realize that all of me is necessary. Nothing is ill-gifted or misplaced—simply mismanaged more often than not. My heart goes out to the beautiful soul whose heart desires nothing more than to sing but chooses to succumb to everything other than his or her own voice. This beautiful soul also loves writing, to paint and to maybe someday become a dancer and public speaker. Yet, today’s society will insist that you can only do one thing with all the many gifts bestowed upon you.

Well to that beautiful soul I say, off with the reigns which say to you—you can only be what sits well with the narrow minds and blinded eyes of those who seek to drown your light in their self-conjured woes and personal fears. I say, do you my dearest andestagōnwa—my dearest love. You, like they, were birthed from an ocean of abundance. So be it that you choose to utilize and manifest with all of your inheritance, and they seek not to follow in your footstep or simply tread their own.

Like begets like—this is a lesson I have relearned, a universal law that neither you nor I can alter. Take the latter into full consideration. Give from your storehouse of abundance—your inheritance, your gifts, your experiences, talents, and skills. You are bound by law to receive an abundance like nothing you have ever seen, but everything you have ever desired.

Yours in Love Truly Always & Forever

 

P.S. Spring has sprung. Welcome to the beginning of the New Year! I am dancing to each beat of your measures. Know, I pray you nothing less than all of your cups running over with love and prosperity. ∞♫∞

Weight Loss Journey: How to Lose Weight Fast in 2019

HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT FAST IN 2019

Disclaimer: Medical issues that prohibit or inhibit weight loss are partially excluded from this conversation; however, in my experience most medical issues have not stopped many people from shedding their undesired pounds. On the contrary, many medical conditions vanish after people begin to leave no man’s baggage at baggage claim. For many of us, we use medical conditions as crutches to make “failing” to achieve the desired result more palatable as we lick our self-inflicted wounds of disappointment.

Change how you see, not the way you look.

—Somebody’s bumper sticker

 Weight Loss Fictions

I am not one who believes you have to diet to lose weight. I do not feel as though you have to consume every next great weight loss supplement, go on an extreme no-carb, low-fat, or a throw-away-your-wild-side healthy diet. Call me a rebel for the cause of living your best life, but I know from my own experience that the quickest way to lose weight fast is to stop trying to lose weight. Some might scoff at such a thought. Yet, I can only tell you what worked for me and some of my dearest friends—yes, I have receipts.

I literally shed over 80 pounds not working out or changing anything other than my mind and my heart. I woke up the day before my wedding, traveled home to Sapponi country excited to try on the gown my mother designed for the first time and was surprised to find out it was a size too big. Walking up the aisle the next day I was a whole new woman, with a brand new body, and I did not have to lose myself or the things that made me happy to experience both.

Dining on 2018 Leftovers: Guide to 2019 New Year Budgeting

DINING ON 2018’S LEFTOVERS—NEW YEAR BUDGETING

When the Georgian New Year rolled up on us like hold up this is a stick up, Frank and I were in our jammies, sitting on the floor of our office with pens and notebooks in hand planning out our Spring releases, Year of the Pig ambitions, and budgeting goals as the sound of our neighbors’ extravagant firework show crashed through the blinds of our window.

To say the least, our 2018 was one helluva lovetrip…no surprise there. We learned so much about ourselves inside and out, but three things really stuck out.

  1. We both were possessed by an insatiable addiction to eating out, and I can be a wee bit of an impulse shopper.
  2. The best place to start looking for our keys to abundance is always right where we are.
  3. When either of us commits to something, no matter how seemingly unlikely or impossible it may appear to be—magical shit happens. Eh, who said we were going to keep it PG this year?
