"Change the Frequency" Weekly Wisdom

Inspirational quote in black letters on a grey background with black and white polka dots

How is your vibe providing a ripple effect?

"Vibe" is such a trendy word and I am here for it. I have been thinking a lot about how someones vibe really is impactful. It can change the whole ambiance of a room because not only do we see it, we feel it. We all know a person who has the best vibes. We want to be around them because more and it changes our own vibe. I know when I am having one of those days, I find those people because they totally change everything about my day. 

When you wake up each day, you choose your vibe for the day but we all know that can change very quickly. The ups and downs of your day happen naturally and so does your frequency. But what we forgot is we can also override it, consciously, if we are not digging that vibe. You can be the person others want to be around. You can be the person who changes the atmosphere. 

Be the person who decides each day to change the frequency. 





"Invest In Yourself" Weekly Wisdom

Invest In Yourself in Black Letters on a grey background with polka dots

Do you invest in yourself?

I am a giver and a caretaker. I want everyone to be happy by giving my time, energy, money - whatever I can do for something else means a lot to me. I invest in my friends, my family, my job and my clients. And I probably am at fault for dong it more for others than doing it for myself because that's not me and that's not comfortable. 

Investing in yourself doesn't need to be expensive. If fact, it is more expensive if you don't invest in yourself. You compromise your mental and physical health because you're not doing what you need to take care of you. Caring for yourself to feel the happiness and goodness within from the life you live. 

Investing in yourself can be as simple as journaling your gratitudes each day, stretching for 5 minutes before bed, hiring a mentor or coach to help you with your career, a weekly massage, an evening walk, a new computer to help you be more efficient - the opportunities are endless. Some don't cost a thing but provide big results. No matter what you do to invest in yourself, not one thing or any cash amount is going to solve all your problems or make things magically perfect but it will help you discover more about what your goals are in your life.  It will also help align you with the right people who value you and your investment. 

Continue to be a giver and a caretaker for others, but don't forget to do the same for you. 




"Spend Your Yes Wisely" Weekly Wisdom

"Spend Your Yes Wisely" in black letters on a grey background with white polka dots

What value do you put on your "yes"?

I stretch myself too thin at times. We all stretch ourselves too thin sometimes. Why do we do it?  Why do we make plans and then when they get here, we are looking for reasons to cancel?  Why do we commit to a task, when we know it is going to keep us working longer than we had planned or take us away from something else we need in our life?

We don't spend our yes wisely. 

We need to put the same value on our yes as we do money. If a yes was a $10 bill, we should make it be 10 times worth that - $100. Our yes has more value than any currency because our yes encompasses so much of ourselves. When we hand out our yes like it's candy, it takes away from what we really should be saying yes to. 

For me, it is yes to more quiet time, yes to less time in front of the computer, yes to reading more, yes to taking care of my health, yes to quality time with my humans, yes to sleep, yes to my mental health, yes to all the things to keep me balanced. 

Next time you are tempted to say yes to another commitment, what valuable thing for yourself are you saying no to?
