June | When Consistency is Key

JuneJunio_LogoDiasehs

¡Feliz Junio Mis Reinas! This is my month! Have you ever started off the month with a bang, and you just know that THIS month is going to be a prosperous, uplifting and enlightening 30 days? Let me tell you what led to all of these positive feelings…

Work was giving me all types of hell. When I say that, I do not mean work related to blogging but 9 to 5 work. In my case, 9:00 a.m. to midnight. Sunrise beyond sunset work. Three words will explain the entire situation…Private Venue Management.

Ding! That’s it! What did I gain from this you ask?

Fewer headaches, a work schedule that makes sense, a new office and the opportunity to actually see the outside world on the weekend. I AM IN HEAVEN! As the month came to a close, there was one last event that made everything so much… sweeter.

Maluma…Juan Luis Londoño Arias…Pretty Boy…Dirty Boy…I had been waiting for this concert for so long! Amway Center in Orlando was packed, but it was so worth it. Check that one off of the list! Head over to my Instagram for concert videos.

For June, I want to focus on one thing. This one works magic in many areas of my life.

Consistency.

I would like to have more consistency in the following areas of my life: Content creation, travel and saying “yes”. If you know anyone who coordinates events, creates content or does any type of marketing for a living…You know why this is a thing. Creating content is a constant struggle. Anyone with half an imagination can come up with things to talk about or take pictures of. The real struggle is creating/doing things that are original. Doing your own thing with little to no influence. It takes time, and now that I have this glorious schedule…I will have more time for blogging. AMEN!

Travel will always be on my list. Why? Travel is my way to recoup. It helps me clear my mind, gain inspiration and just be free! It doesn’t matter if I travel within my same state or out of the country. I just need new experiences. I am going to OWN my summer!

When you go through large changes, whether they are related to work or your personal life, you may find yourself being a little overwhelmed at first. Who wouldn’t?! When I would get stressed, the first thing I would tend to do is say no to everything. Back in November, all I could do is say yes, and I left no time for myself. As of lately, I wouldn’t want to do anything extra or change my schedule for fear that it would add more stress or throw me off. This past month, I got out of that crazy cycle, and I intend to keep it that way!

Saying yes, in moderation, is a way to invite new and positive experiences into your life.

Motivation Sundae: Confidence + Acknowledging Your Success

MotivationSundaeLogo_Diasehs

“You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”

– A.A. Milne

When I saw this quote, it spoke to my spirit. There are many times when we don’t give ourselves enough credit. At times we compare ourselves to other people or compare our successes to the successes of others. I am going to let you in on a little secret:

Not one person got to where they are in life the exact same way as another person. I do not care if they are parent and child, brother and sister or twins. Everyone’s journey is completely different!

With that being said, I am going to present you with a few ways to build confidence while acknowledging your successes.


1 | CARE A LITTLE LESS

Disclaimer: I am not asking you to go out into the word and become a complete savage. That’s not the message in this case. Read this with an open mind.

Have you ever had someone mention something about your looks, beliefs, or work ethic, etc. and you know that they are completely wrong in their assumptions because they do not know you? Yet…what they said still bothers you. Take what they have to say with a grain of salt! If you are trying your hardest and you make the effort to continuously better yourself, then that’s is what you continue to do. Do not switch up what you are doing just because someone makes a side comment. Do not think that you are less attractive because of something that a rude person said. You have to build your own foundation to stand on. Own your journey. Own your process. Stay Beautiful!


2 | HAVE POWER BEHIND YOUR MESSAGE!

I am a firm believer in speaking positive affirmations into your life. I spoke about this back in October of last year via Instagram. I will leave the link to that post here. What reintroduced this process to mind was a video that I watched via Hollywood Unlocked. This particular interview featured Meagan Good. At the time, Jason Lee was speaking about DeVon Franklin. The advice that DeVon gave Jason when he was developing a project was, “Figure out what your message is because these words are going to have power.” I was sold, and he was so right. This can also apply to everyday life.

Have you ever been set on doing something in your life or working on something that is close to your heart and an outsider asks you, “Why are you doing this?” Have you always had a legitimate reason to give them? Everyone has had that moment when they just don’t know or their message isn’t exactly clear. Know your message. Know your purpose. Know your platform. There is an abundance of beauty in showing passion for something and knowing exactly what your message/purpose is. Allow yourself to take a step back and think on your message, and once you have that set in your mind, stick with it. You will be confident in sharing your purpose with the world when your foundation is strong.

3 | USE THE POWER OF THE LETTER “I”!

You believe what you speak into yourself. Think about it. Whenever you say, “I feel…”, “I am…”, “I can’t…”, you speak that existence into yourself. Use that in a positive way. This will build your confidence like no other! Build that confidence within yourself using powerful statements.

Example: Did you just finish a major project that pushed your limits? Acknowledge your success and say, “I am hard working, and I am creative.” Believe the words that you are speaking into yourself.

It has been a proven fact that saying these positive words into a mirror helps boost your confidence. Find the biggest and brightest mirror that you have. Speak those positive words into your life. Make this a daily practice. Remember it takes a minimum of 21 days to form a habit. Add this great one into the mix!

I BELIEVE IN YOU!

NOVEMBER | CREATIVITY, SUCCESS & BALANCE


HAPPY NOVEMBER LOVES! Let me start this post with a HUGE apology. I have truly been missing in action. Given, I could have given a warning, but I have my reasons which I will share right now…

  1. Work has been the biggest pain in my butt since my childhood vaccinations.
  2. Your girl needed time to reflect, relax and have some peace of mind.
  3. My mind was in a creative slump, and I needed time to regroup. Pinterest wasn’t helping me.

Due to all of these things, I went on a temporary hiatus from the second week in September to the second week in October. #HelloVacation

During this time, I discovered many things about myself, remembered a few things to help me get back on track and had a influx of creative ideas. I am back now, and I have a new outlook for the month of November. This month I want to embrace creativity as a whole. I don’t want to just focus on creativity within my blog, on Instagram, on Facebook, on Twitter or on YouTube. I want to expand my creativity to all platforms including my regular every day life. I’ve gotten back into doing a few projects, and I purchased some new camera equipment, so that has definitely given me a boost to get some new things done.

My work schedule has gotten back to a normal and consistent baseline as of lately. Now I have more time to physically sit down at my desk, get my life together and actually create some worthy content. I want to get back into the habit of posting at least twice a week and recording videos regularly. I’ve started doing so, but I need to be a little bit more consistent. Progress is what makes the world go around, and as long as I am progressing, I can be happy.

This month I also want to focus on success. Too often I find myself critiquing little things about my content or things at work, etc. I’ve come to the conclusion that I focus more on my failures than my successes. That is the WRONG thing to do when you are trying to get some pep in your step! There was a tip I learned a while back about making to do lists.

*Pauses to put on glasses and clear throat*

Instead of doing the traditional to do list as one long column of things that need to be done and checking them off as you go… you should make two columns/lists! The first column/list should be a to do list and the second should be a done list. Thank you Lilly Singh for making my life so much easier. This way, at the end of the day, you can see all the things that you HAVE accomplished and not just focus on the things that you HAVE NOT accomplished. All people/ideas in history that have been successful have reached that success with few or many drawbacks. No one or thing is perfect, and that is definitely something to remember.

The last focus point that I want to expand on today is balance. I love agendas, and anything that I can write down my little notes on because sometimes my phone doesn’t cut it. I am an old-fashioned pen and paper type of girl when it comes to planning out my weeks, months and year for that matter. Last year, I got a Big Happy Planner from a company called Me and My BIG Ideas, and I fell in love with it! This year I did the same thing, and it definitely helps me in the category of balance. Another part of my journey to balance is knowing when to just say NO. I’ve always been that person to get the job done, always think of other people before myself, never say never, and always be the one to find the answer.

Majority of the time these are all great characteristics to have… especially when you are in your mid 20’s and work for the government. *raises hand slowly*

However, it came to the point where I was saying so much “yes” and not enough “no” that my body started to shut down mentally and physically. I would always be tired, I would feel sick, I would always have a chip on my shoulder, and that’s just not the person that I am. I’ve gotten to the point now where if my body is telling me no and I know that I can afford to have time to myself, I will definitely take it, and it is paying off tremendously! #healthandwellness #selflove
