Monday Mindset

Monday Mindset
I changed trajectories. I loved the idea of my Monday Monster blogs, it was fun, authentic and seemed to be relatable. But the word monster was starting to get to me. I didn't always love the feeling that can go with that word. 

Sometimes it was the warm fuzzy feeling of those cute monsters from the Monsters Inc. movie and other times it was a raging red eyed hell dog chasing me. Either way, I started to not love the word.  

And so I ended up not writing for a few weeks, I blamed the holidays, work,  the crazy energy of December starting and many other things-but in reality it was me not loving that word but not really knowing how to change that. 

So here we are, I started this Monday better off than many of the last Mondays; listening to motivational videos from some of my favorite YouTube channels,  getting some work out of the way, getting to the gym early and feeling more peaceful than in some time.  Refocus.

Today, I'm going to focus on how it all can be done, change the mindset and feel for more. 

What's one positive about your Monday?

This Monday has been filled with so many joyous moments. Often holidays can bring up a lot of different emotions for many people but for me I'm blessed to have  mostly happy times. I have a wonderful group of friends and family members and was blessed to be able to spend some time with them while being back in NY for Thanksgiving time. 

 One of my favorite quotes that I just rediscovered is; "I could have. What does this phrase mean? At any given moment in our lives, there are certain things that could have happened but didn't. The magic moments go unrecognized, and then suddenly, the hand of destiny changes everything." 

It made me think twice, to think about the moments that we don't always realize are passing us by and if we had taken the time to pay attention our life might have taken a different turn.  You can't always sit around thinking about the 'coulda, woulda, shoulda' but every once in awhile it can be useful to take a moment and learn from some of the choices you made. 

There are a lot of positives to this Monday! 
Top three things that brought me happiness on this Monday
  • Oiling up! I applied an oil I just got this month, Higher Unity!! It's a magical blend of  It is a
    luxurious and rich blend of Sacred Sandalwood™, Sacred Frankincense™, Lime, Northern Lights Black Spruce, Spearmint, Lemon, Jasmine, and Rose oils! It brings a beautiful level of calmness to your day πŸ™
  • Taking a water aerobics class with my mom at her gym! I haven't done this in over 10 years and it was just nice being present with her in the water. πŸ’ͺ 
  • Spending time today working on my business, the business of helping others create a life filled with wellness, purpose and abundance.  Every once in awhile I have to think deeply about why I'm doing this business, why am I working so hard to help others? I have always wanted to help others; how I was going to do it has changed over the years but ultimately, this is my journey. I also love taking the time to write and repeat one of my favorite mantras “every day I attract people and opportunities that grow my YL business quickly with grace and ease”. πŸ™

Monday. There are a lot of times that Mondays are difficult. Then there are plenty of times when Monday is a joyful relaxing day.  I wouldn't say this Monday was either of those things. 

I am going back to NYC for the first time since I have moved. It is the longest I've been away from my city. I am surprisingly just fine, if not happy, to not be living in NYC-a sentence I NEVER thought I would utter, like ever. It's not that I am so majorly in love with Chicago (although a great city!) or even that I don't love NYC with all my heart (because I do); but it's time for a new chapter in my life, one that includes my favorite place in the US, Southern California. 

While waiting for my flight to board I notice that there are a ton of people near the gate to board, waiting, ready to pounce! Yet they have called no one to board, not even the fancy people. I keep thinking, 'you guys need to chiiillll out!' Then I remembered that this plane is definitely filled with New Yorkers and I most definitely used to be one of those people waiting in line way before necessary. I feel relaxed that I'm not as tightly wound as I used to be. I can't wait to be even more open once I make the move to SoCal. πŸŒŠπŸ–πŸ™

Top three things that brought me happiness on this Monday
  • Oiling up! With flying Thieves is my number one best friend! Always important to keep that immune system going, especially on planes!βœˆπŸ’Ί 
  • Cleaning the kitchen before I left our apartment, I love coming home to a clean (or at least 'cleanish') space!πŸ”‘πŸ—
  • Watching a Hallmark movie about a single mom and her two girls who move back to South Carolina from LA. Just a sweet story with some serious eye candy πŸ˜‹

Today was a Monday, that's for sure. A Monday in the cold weather, grey sky land.  But it ended on a beautiful note with a delicious glass of wine and a fabulous spin class with my sister! By getting to class it helped me realize that working out in the morning is super key for me. To start the day off with endorphins, with a mission accomplished, really helps me get more things done and feel better about life!   

Yesterday was a really amazing day energy wise, being 11/11 and all. I sat down and meditated at 11:11 on 11/11. It was one of the most spiritual days I've had in weeks (well really since California). I did a meditation which called for 11 minutes of flow writing, so writing for 11 minutes straight, whatever comes to mind. My writing was filled with so many different thoughts about life; what I want/need/deserve, what I will accomplish and how much I can help people. Sometimes we don't always know what we want or how to get there and other times we have basic ideas but ultimately if you're open and you have faith in your journey it will come to you. 

The meditation I was following asked you to look at what you had written for those 11 minutes, pick out the feeling words that were most prominent to you and visualize how they fit into your current and future life.  The words that popped up for me were love, empower, truth and peace. 

I took some time visualizing as the meditation instructed, about what my life would look like with the words truth, empowerment, love and peace.  I focused on my words and thoughts and ended with my  final mantra, "My intention moving forward is to pray boldly, and have faith in what I am doing, to never lose the light and keep my vibrations high no matter the environment." 

Top three things that brought me happiness on this Monday
  • Oiling up! I really needed some Believe oil this morning and as one of my oily bff's reminded me, putting En-R-Gee on my adrenals to work on stress levels! 🌊
  • Getting in a fabulous spin class in the evening! 🚴
  • Watching an amazing Hallmark movie with my sister called "Loving Leah". Best Hallmark movie ever.  The synopsis goes like this, "When Leah, a young Orthodox Jewish woman, is widowed by her rabbi husband, an old religious law dictates  she must either denounce him or marry his younger brother Jake." βœ‘πŸ™

The Monday Monster. I am so happy I started this consistent blog post each week. Some days I'm far more inspired than others. This weekend was one of the most interesting ones that I had in awhile. There were so many emotions and thoughts and fun times had that I still don't quite know how to process all of them.🀷  

So this morning, I woke up and made the decision to get up and go to spin🚴, even though I was exhausted (these time changes always mess with me!), I knew I'd be happier if I got out of bed. It's not just the literal physical movement of spinning but it's getting out of the house, moving to music and seeing other people. It can sometimes be isolating to work from home if you don't get out and chat with people!- (although at the same time I seriously love it and can't imagine anything different!), so it's important to get out and socialize! I clearly felt good about getting in a spin class before 7am too! 

There are a lot of positives to this Monday! 
Top three things that brought me happiness on this Monday
  • Oiling up! I applied (as I do almost every morning) a couple of drops of clary sage and ylang ylang on my wrist and behind my ears. This is really helpful for hormone balancing! 🌊
  • Getting started reading a book that I haven't read in awhile! The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy that was given to me years ago 🎁πŸ’ͺ but it's always good to revisit things that teach you so much! 
  • Taking time to calm myself down when things got a bit crazy; deep breathe, journal, close my eyes and repeat my mantra of the day “every day I attract people and opportunities that grow my YL business quickly with grace and ease”. πŸ™
