It’s Your Season, Pour Into Yourself!!!!

Hey Lucids,

It’s a new year and a new day….Before 2020 came in, you told yourself that this would be your year, so what steps have you taken to make your goals manifest? Some of us wanted to become an entrepreneur, lose weight, start furthering our education, become a homeowner, or even leave that bloody relationship that no longer serves us. Well I am here to tell you to do it, start with what you have today, and I am not just saying this to you, I am speaking to myself as well. I promised myself I would become a homeowner this year and lose weight, and guess what, I have taken the steps to start that process by taking a first-time home-buyer’s class and taking my butt to the gym. Baby steps, I am doing what I can with what I have right now.

Pour Into Yourself

For so long lots of us has been the support for someone else, be it our spouse, family members, kids, or friends. We forget to take care of ourselves in the process. Yes, we can get up in the morning and put on our nice clothes, style our hair, and spray on our favorite fragrances, but are we really okay? Or are we feeling like we take care of everything and everybody with no one to take care of us or be our shoulder. Are we feeling used and unappreciated? Did you know we could avoid feeling that way if we considered and loved on ourselves more? And I am not saying to not support your loved ones, but if you are not giving to yourself, how can you love, support, and pour into someone else, or expect them to do the same for you in return.

My message for you today is to Take Care of You, Make Yourself Happy, Heal Whatever is Stopping you from being the Best Version of Yourself. Stop looking at or comparing yourself to others and their timelines, it’s not yours, worry about your own self. Live in your own divine time, appreciate what God has given you today, so that he may bless you tomorrow. Also, know that it is perfectly okay to put yourself first. And it’s perfectly okay to tell others no if you have nothing to give, especially if it’s taking away from you. Take the steps you need to take today with whatever you have now, if you don’t do anything but write down your plans or your vision, pray for guidance, or ask for help. Start Today friends, let’s not allow the summer or the end of the year to arrive and have accomplished nothing, I’ll say it again Start Today, Start Tonight, Start Right Now…….It’s your time, pour into yourself….

Love,

Pretty Lucid

Anyone due for a Vision Board?

So most of us have settled very well into 2016, accomplishing our goals and sticking to our New Year’s resolutions; but if you’re inconsistent like me, you may have slacked off. Now for 2016, I decided not make any new resolutions because I knew my life was moving in a different direction. I ended a relationship, got a promotion at work, bought a new car, and most of all I started to make myself a priority rather than everyone and everything else. So clearly I knew my life was changing. I did plan on setting goals for myself along the way, but somewhere in that process, I felt overwhelmed and found myself in a rut and couldn’t find my way out. I even visited my doctor because I felt so tired and burned out. I never realized that when your mind is tired, it can really make your body very tired and fatigued.

Anyway; after some soul searching and allowing myself to sit in that rut to identify what was going on with myself, I was able to regroup and get myself together. Which brings me to the subject at hand..VISION BOARD…. I remember some time ago I created a vision board and it really helped me to stay focused on my goals and was a great reminder that there was still work to be done anytime I felt like slacking. So although we are well into 2016, I still decided to create a vision board to have a visual of my long-term goals and to create the baby steps along the way. Therefore, I will be able to finish off the year with a bang and have a clear vision of what I want and need to accomplish in 2017, God willing.

So friends if you’re feeling a little out of place or unclear as to what you want to do with your life. A vision board is an awesome tool to help you realize your goals and make plans for your future. It’s never too late and it’s a fun activity. I’m even thinking of throwing vision board parties..It’s nothing like cupcakes, margaritas, and great friends sharing their vision…

 

Till Next Time,
