Have you ever noticed that your thoughts can totally affect how you feel??
Like if you sit back and think about it, you can really feel stressed, overwhelmed, anxious just by your freaking thoughts alone
Wake up in the morning, start thinking about all this shit you have to do— that can really fuck with your mood just by the damn thoughts going on in your head
Our thoughts really impact our emotions and our emotions really impact our vibe
So what about if you tried this...
Next time you’re in a low vibe funk— what if you spent some time thinking about one of your favorite memories of your entire life?
Thinking back to one of your favorite vacations, concerts, night with friends— maybe the day your child was born or the day of a major accomplishment
What happens when you start thinking about those memories??
It can raise your vibe like crazy
You can literally elevate yourself by feeling the same way you felt that day
Pure joy, bliss,...
We all know what it's like to give so much of energy to someone or something and then just felt absolutely drained afterwards?
It's an awful feeling, isn't it?
Like you are giving, giving, giving so much of you and just not receiving much back in return?
This is a pattern that's not going to serve you in feeling your absolute best.
This pattern happens when we lack boundaries for ourselves
Did you speak up and stand up for yourself?
It took me a long freaking time to learn this lesson.
I used to be a people pleasure through and through
I’d give, give, give even when my heart was telling me not to
I didn’t know how to express myself— I had no boundaries and I just wanted to make others happy which caused me to completely neglect myself
And the WORST part — when someone would try to give me something, I’d completely shut them down “No, no, it’s ok. Thank you.”
This is NOT LIFEEEE
I got something I want to remind you..
WHAT A BOMB ASS, UNIQUE PERSON YOU ARE!
Do you receive that compliment?
No matter what life’s brought your way — you’re fucking bomb with LIMITLESS potential
If you’re feeling good in life right now, you’re probably like—
“Hell ya Melissa, I receive that compliment”
If you’re not feeling so good about life right now— you can probably feel that little shit talking devil in your shoulder resisting the shit out of my compliment
Let me say it again...
WHAT A FUCKING BOMB ASS UNIQUE PERSON YOU ARE WITH LIMITLESS CAPABILITIES & ENDLESS WAYS TO HEAL YOURSELF & THE WORLD
Believe it babyy
The way you feel right this second doesn’t have to be the way that you feel the rest of your life
Have you ever sat there saying things to yourself like..
”I feel behind in life, I really envisioned more for myself by now”
”I don’t want to feel...
Jim Rohn said it best -
He said 'Winter always comes'
What he meant by that is no matter what - no matter how much personal development work that you do - winter always comes. The cold, hard days won't just disappear, but you'll be bette at handling them
We're going to have a whole bunch of high vibe days as we learn to better take care of ourselves and our energy - but we have to remember that the low vibe experiences still will surface.
I truly believe that the low vibe times play an important role in trying to teach us or remind us of something.
There is typically truth hidden within the experiences that make you feel low vibe.
So ask yourself 'what is here for me'?
'What am I meant to be learning from this experience'?
Take out a journal or a piece of paper and answer your own questions.
You have all the answers within your heart, you just must be willing to go find them.
Low vibes don't have to last long if you're willing to learn how to...
I remember when I was first getting into fitness I used to be so fucking rude to myself because I wasn’t as coordinated as I envisioned myself being
It’s been a practice of finding grace with myself. Being kind. Standing tall for my potential— not my limitations.
Life is just like a balancing act. Some days you’re gunna get knocked off balance
How will you react???
Cuz that’s what matters
Who cares if you’re a klutz like meee, that makes us unique! That makes us real! That makes us human!
No need to be judgmental towards ourself — it’s time to embrace allllllll of who we are — not just how ‘perfect’ we can be
If you can stay balanced for days on days, fuck yaaaa— good for you!!!
If you’re more like me, you may feel the ebbs & flow of life
Some days your super motivated, super gung hoe (ps I’ve never actually used that word in a caption i don’t think ) and super high vibe
Do you believe in you??
I know it sounds like a silly question — “like ya Melissa of course I believe in me”...
But do you actually?
Do you trust yourself?
Do you trust your visions?
Do you trust your desires?
Do you allow yourself to dream bigger?
Do you allow yourself to tap into your unique gifts & light unapologetically?
Do you allow yourself to be seen? Do you allow yourself to be heard?
Do you feel like you’ve got a responsibility in creating Heaven on Earth?
I ask these questions cuz in my opinion — this is the ‘life work’
Letting go of the resistance, the judgement & the low vibe emotions we have around ourself is the life work
You’ve heard it a million freaking times, if you don’t love you then how can someone else — the reality is, if you don’t love you — if you don’t see value in you — life will feel so much heavier than it needs to
It all starts with your relationship to...
