we had an epic storm roll through on saturday evening. woke us all up at 2am sunday and we ended up camped out in the living room. it was gone by sunday afternoon and left behind puddles galore in our back yard, the kids wasted no time jumping in.
i feel like i have been on some sort of soul seeking journey over the past few weeks. which is weird, because at 28 you would think you would have it somewhat together, or not. i tend to let others actions consume me and define me. which frankly, is pretty sad. i know who i am, i know what i believe in, i know where i came from and yet i still let others words rip me apart.
i feel like i found a new sense of self. that my worth does have value and i should be proud of that. we all should really.
i have started meditating to help release any negative thoughts and emotions. which has brought me a whole new light of thinking, not only about myself but of others as well. i can't hold any anger towards others for being who they are, i can't change them. but i can change myself and not allow what others say have any sort of effect on me other than to push me to be more positive.
i came across this mantra while researching meditation:
" i change my thoughts, i change my world"
when i find that i am having any negative thoughts towards anyone or any situation, i repeat it over and over in my head. and over the past week since finding this, i have had so many positive doors open for me. i would have never thought that a quote could be so life changing in such a short time, and it was just that.
"your vibe attracts your tribe"
i have become more thankful for new friendships that have brought me new adventures and value the meaning of a true friend. even not seeing them everyday, we are able to pick up where we left off like no time had passed. i look forward to coffee dates and photo adventures, being with those who enjoy my company as much as i enjoy theirs.
