Where You Are Is Good

Happy Friday loves! How has your day, week, been for you? Have you been feeling anything other than yes, today was an amazing day? Get real and be real, that’s how you start acknowledging how you want things to be different than they are. There is always hope for something new and different!

Sometimes life can be and feel overwhelming that when we want to make things better or change things we just don’t know how.  We can become confused or simply feel stuck with just the thought of trying to figure out what direction or move to make to move things in a better direction.  We may think that we have to have something or accomplish this or that before we can begin to make that change.  Lean, in let me whisper something in your ear…you have to start somewhere and there is no better place to start then where you stand. 

Yup, all you can do is be how you are right now and in order to make that something different you must start right there as you exist. I have found that starting at YOUR starting line, can help things seem a little less daunting when you turn in and tune in to where YOU are.  Focus on what can be accomplished from where you are and put things into action.  Once you are in action things will move you in the direction that you need to go in. Obstacles that were once there will disappear or appear not as obstacles but simply stepping stones.

Take the first steps from where you are today, this Friday!  Focus on what you can do from where you are.  There is always something that can be done right where you are, just focus on that.  Concentrate on the smaller things and tackle those, especially if the bigger picture seems daunting.  So start where you are and what you can do to move you to where you want to be.   

Much Love, Nic

Ice Cream Trucking

Hello, loves! How is life treating you since the last time we came together here? As an adult who is faced with the ridiculous requirement by society to adult, I miss being able to just be a kid again.  Also, still not sure anyone has this adulting thing figured out but I digress.

Sigh, to be a kid again, the days of just trying to have the best day ever!  Riding bikes days on end, avoiding the bully zone with your team of kids there to help you navigate the lay of the kidscape.  Chasing down the sound of the ice cream truck music for that sweet reward of locating the target feeding your belly with the coolness of sweet satisfaction.  Hanging out during recess with other kids in school who wanted nothing but good things for me.   Knowing that it was all about having fun, playing to our hearts content.  Kids would ask you to play not thinking about if you vibed or had the cool this or that.  No, it was just focused on getting your play on coexisting in the neighborhood or playground together as long as you didn’t affect there good times, no issues would pop off for the need to run and tell your mama or visit the principles office.  

Now, as a person attempting with all the best of my ability to be an adult, I understand why so many “adults” have a hard time dealing with other people attempting the adulting process.  The adult landscape is a hard one to navigate when there are unsaid laws of the land and vary by your current longitude and latitude coordinates.  It can become overwhelming to say the least to try to figure out this whole new world of “adulting”.  It can seem like a lonely road to walk alone with all these battles to fight solo, with no time to play, no that’s NOT allowed in Adulthood.

Responsibility…blah blah blah blah, this bill…blah blah blah, food and shelter…blah blah blah, other adults…blah blah blah.  It is so overwhelming to try to keep it all balanced as an adult and trying to engage with other adulting people who are on the same road as you.  Some have become jaded, worn out, abused, and disheartening from walking the road of life.  They engage with others based on their experiences through unkindness, harsh criticism, hate, if only to feel like they can better understand others because they are trying to bring them to the level that they are at.  We are forced to grow up, to have it figured out, with expectations of how your truth for you should look like based on societal standards and comfortability.  We have forgotten about how it was to be a kid, just focused on having the best day ever, sharing that day with others with no concern if the other is like us beyond being a human being,  with the focus only on enjoying the moment.   

So I ask you a simple question, do you want to swing on the swings with me…I’ll push you higher if you push me high, slide down the slide…thanks for letting me go first, play jump rope sharing the one…you jump while I cheer you on.  Oh and run like hell making sure I am running right next to you listening to that music in the distance where I’ll see you at the ice cream truck when we for a brief moment most definitely have something in common, liking and now eating ice cream at the same time together.  Too bad that we can’t think about the bigger connections as adults beyond ice cream, or sorbet for those vegan and lactose intolerant peeps, cause everyone is welcome at the ice cream truck.

With Love, Nic

Heart Touchy

Hi loves! I was asked about the types of people that warm my heart. Thinking about that question really made me feel the need to highlight these amazing human beings and make me want to champion for their existence in this world.  They have an amazing heart space that deserves to be honored for giving the world more love, kindness and compassion.  A WIN in my book!

#1 Altruistic Champions

I am always amazed at those people who live their lives, I mean their whole existence, focused on helping others.  The ability to make yourself the focus of how you can help someone else.  It is not about them and never will be except the thought of how can I help others that are in need of something for a better quality life.  They understand the impact championing for other people can have and the domino affect that has on the world around us all.  When you exist better, you do better and you are able to give in return to help someone else.       

#2 Open-minded Audacity

To be bold enough to be open to the thoughts outside of your own reality and life experiences.  This quality is something that the world could benefit from with more people like this.  It is an ideal that is based on existing and operating in a place of love, of being able to consider other opinions, thoughts, and lifestyles that are so different from what you may know or can even comprehend.  To be humble enough to not allow your mind to keep you from considering other peoples existence here as not worthy or purposeful because it it is outside of who you are.  

#3 Unapologetic Uniqueness

I love to see my fellow unicorns out there that are okay with dancing to the beat of their own drum with not one care if others can hear the music that they are dancing to in order to understand why you are moving at that rhythm, beat and timing.  You give no cares about others and their understanding of how and why you are the way you are.  You love the way that they were designed to be and by doing so you unknowingly encourage others to embrace themselves as well.  

#4 Not Taking Self Seriously

When you are able to exist from a place of not taking yourself seriously, you have my heart!  Not one single person is so important that they are more valuable than the other.  When you are in a heart space of not taking things seriously you are more open to not taking every life moment as an end all and be all.  You realize that perfection does not exist and do not seek to obtain the unobtainable.  You are better equipped to handle those bumps along the road with grace and humor not allowing it to take you out of the game because you realize that it could be worse and focus on what you can do about it without allowing it to consume you.  Not one person is perfection and for those that know it and able to laugh at their short falls without taking it seriously, I see you and love it.  

#5 Passionately Life Living

We all have seen people who have an unwavering zeal for experiencing the many things that they can within their life, or maybe this is who you are.  You aren’t afraid to try new things, or if you are embracing that, fear is the task at hand along the path towards achievement.  You truly live every moment as if it is the last moment on this earth.  Celebrating the small things in life right along with the big things, because every accomplishment is an achievement that deserves to be celebrated.  You are living your life on purpose and that becomes part of your book of life that you are writing each day on earth.

If you are one or a few of the above, you have won my heart.  My love and support is yours to have, as you are a person that encourages me to come from a place of being open, leading more with love.  You all are important to the world and the balance that is needed to provide solitude and peace to those in need.  You seek to challenge the conventional thoughts that we sometimes have that prevents us from seeing that there are realities outside of our little worlds.  Encouraging that there is nothing to be afraid of from others as long as they are coming from that loving heart space, they seek not to harm but to encourage more love.  There can never be too much love in the world, it is the only thing that can help soothe the pains and start the healing process from experiencing the moments of living life.  

Much Love, Nic

Don’t Look Down…Only Ahead & Up

Hi my loves! What if you just didn’t look down? Never took the time to think about looking down, only looked up and ahead of you? What would happen to you if you did just that? Never thought about how high up you are and the possible danger that lies below? Thought about what it would be like to touch the sky, fly high soaring above in the sky just living your life afraid of nothing but not living? Did I grab your attention…good because we should talk about living the life that you dare dream to live!

I want to talk to day about the importance of looking up and ahead and how when we are focused on what is below us or behind us can keep ourselves stuck, not moving, living or enjoying our lives! So why am I talking about, well writing about, not looking down? Because we limit ourselves living like that in a few ways that may help encourage you to seek looking up and moving ahead so talk about it we must!

You Get To Enjoy The View

When we take the time to enjoy the view that is above there is this instant shift that happens where you experience the world in a unique way. Your perspective shifts and your eyes and mind experience things in a completely different way. Things take on new shapes and colors and shadows shift.

This looking up action also shifts the stress that we sometimes carry in our shoulders, lower back or even in our hearts. This opens that heart-space up a bit wider allowing you to experience things less in your mind but guided through your heart. Allow your heart to guide you and just breathe in a new way while looking up. It’s a great practice to move your body in a different way and this is a great way to get it moving towards looking up!

I challenge you to take the time over the next few weeks and schedule some time to look up. To stop in the most random of places and look up with your whole head, not just your eyes, to enjoy the view that is above you. Really take the time to take in what you are seeing and how you are feeling. This is a great mindfulness practice that allows you to disconnect and just exist in the moment with no thought other than taking in the world around you that is up above.

You Get Inspired Not Terrified

Have you every noticed that if you focus on looking up and not looking down that it helps you to not freak about that fact that you are off the ground. Sometimes when I am high up it helps me to look ahead or just stop and look up at the sky and notice the clouds, the colors that are in the sky or even the weather and how I am experiencing it on my skin. It starts to calm my mind to not think about how high up I am because I am not thinking about that. My mind is focused on what is above me or up ahead.

When you are able to move out of the fear it is lesson to yourself and your mind and body that you can be ok, that you can move past that initial thinking of what lies below. This new thought creates a new reality that you conquered something that was uncomfortable and in that reality it inspires you to be ok with trying it again or something new altogether.

It’s all about focusing on making those tiny little steps and creating those small little shifts that are focused on just that small shift that soon you are able to look at all those small little shifts that you have taken and how they add up to a big change in how you were before.

What is that one place that scares you a bit that you can got to and just look up and ahead to help you embrace that you are capable of existing? Realizing that you will be ok in that space, and that you are more powerful and stronger than you may have ever realized taking on the next challenging experience head on. See how you got this…sometimes we just need those reminders.

Much Love, Nic
