#Challenge4: Do something for yourself and turn it into a ritual
1-#JustForToday: Visualize the person you want to be.
If you are still having trouble doing this, I know I am, try thinking of all the individuals whom have inspired you so far. What about them inspire you towards this person you know, or at least your subconscious knows, is inside? That person who has done, said or dared things you have only thought of and have always wanted to explore. The friend that stood their ground or the performer that killed it on stage. Our feelings, intuition, is your compass**.
2- #JustForToday: Calm down mind chatter.
Just for today stick with calming down mind chatter. It’s the hardest one but with the most substantial results. You are doing awesome, keep it up!
3- #JustForToday: Commit.
Commit to integrity. Just for today, do one thing that is in alignment with the being you want to be. Be the example
4- #JustForToday: Do something for yourself and turn it into a ritual.
Just for today, take 5 min, at least, for yourself. You deserve your own attention as much as the next. Yes I am once again putting a great amount of emphasis in regards to this! Do something that makes you feel good about yourself and relaxed. This challenge is to an extra importance this time because it is used in reconnecting with ourselves and reconnecting with ourselves is, as already mentioned, leadership 101. We can’t lead if we don’t know where we are leading too.
We know where we are leading too, when we know who we are.
We know who we are, when we have found ourself.
And we find our higher self, when we are responding in accordance with the greater good for ourself and for all.
The greatest Love of them all. Take this time for yourself and turn it as a ritual, make it sacred part of your day. It’s important. So just for today, take that 5 mins for yourself and sit alone on the stairs in front of your office. Or get that 5$ iced caramel frappuccino your crazing so much and enjoy every sip. Go for that jog, put on that mascara and or eyeliner your didn’t have time to put on this morning.

1- #JustForToday: Visualize the person you want to be.
If you still have trouble with this brake it down. Think of what kind of daughter, son, entrepreneur, teacher, mother, Lover, the kind of boss you want to be or become. Your highest self is the person that make you feel the happiest inside.
2- #JustForToday: Monitor mind chatter.
Thoughts are like seeds planted in the mind. We decide the kind of fertilizer we use. When something is repeated long enough it becomes, something psychologist like to say, the self fulling prophecy. If we constantly bombard our mind with unrealistic thoughts of negativity we self sabotage ourself. We bring our vibrational level down and in consequence attract these things or misfortune. Misfortune is in the eye of the beholder. When your better able to control your mind you’ll be able to see and even transforme misfortunes into opportunity.
3- #JustForToday: Commit
Its easy to get distracted and never finish any projects or goals we set out. A leader is able to set himself or herself a mission and plan accordingly. They do not wait around for anyone to assign them one either. They challenge themselves constantly and stick to it. This helps them build confidence, determination and integrity. Just for today set yourself a goal. The smaller the better. It could be as simple as doing the laundry. Committing to go to that yoga class. Making someone smile. Making that rude barista at your usual coffee shop feel amazing and appreciated. Commit to just one thing today and stick to it. Importantly be proud when you’ve achieved it. I even encourage you to start recording them so as to go back and remind yourself of your achievements.
Today’s blog will begin with what this blog is about. As most, if not all, of you already know, for the last 7 years, give or take, I was a complete mess and with no idea as to why. Keeping myself busy with work, projects, school, training, dead end relationships, both the romantic and not, and petty problems, to name a few, thinking that awkward feeling of being alone with myself would eventually go away. Thinking like, I’m sure, most of you, the more I have on my plat the better because that’s what capitalism teaches us and the issues we should be facing are generously postponed. I only recently thought myself how to look internally, as opposed to externally, for answers and that, in it self, changed my life. I faced demons I didn’t know existed. I realized I was not my true authentic self but a vulnerable sponge, soaking up what I believed needed to be soaked up based on socially, culturally and religiously constructed views. Restricting myself from experiences that would have or could have brought me closer to my true self or the opposite, pursuing experiences that I believed were important to pursue based on these elements and a heavy price, that of integrity. Everything that kept me in the dark was finally being put to light and the relationship I had lost with myself was slowly blooming again despite the dark heavy mud.
I couldn’t recognize it then, but the teachers and guides I’ve encountered and the lessons I’ve learned were blessings in disguises. This blog is to remind myself how far I’ve come and to look back at what I’ve learned and On my journey I have encountered incredible people whom, like how once I did, haven’t yet realize how incredible they are and what kind of light lies within. That immensely powerful and beautiful light that lies inside all of us. With that said I’m also writing this blog for anyone who’s ever felt lost or confused at any point of their lives. I hope these blogs help you as much as they are helping me.
I will end this blog today with this; It always gets better. The dark isn’t a scary place and it never has to be faced alone. We are all connected somehow.
Can’t wait to write to you Beautiful and Incredible Souls next week
Have a Beautiful Night
