If I’ve not already mentioned in one of my posts already I’m a Yogi and love practicing yoga. This past weekend during one of the hot yoga classes my instructor brought to our attention by saying, “Are you content with wherever you are in your pose or even life now?” That statement stuck with me during the entire practice and weekend. Most of us are usually looking get to a destination or a goal that we have set for ourselves. Many times we forget or ignore the journey we are on to getting to the goal we have set.
I for one am guilty of not being content with wherever I am in life. My career has been the topic I’ve been struggling with the most. Constantly applying for different jobs, getting a telephone interview, an in person interview here and there and at the end no job offer. Since the beginning of the year I’ve been so focused on transitioning into a different position than the one I hold now and I have not been content.
I AM CONTENT
Since Saturday these three words have been what I’ve been mediating, digesting, and focusing on. Accepting where I am as far as my career goes. This does not mean I will stop applying, but it’s a reminder that I should be thankful for my current job that helps my pay rent, bills, and gives me the ability to join social events. I am healthy and have a job. Many people don’t have either a good health nor a good paying job. But I do and I am content with it. When the right position and time comes my way things will start unfolding like a blossoming rose.
I AM CONTENT
Don’t forget to count your blessings, accept what you currently have because there is someone out there who wishes they have what you do. Be content where you are in life, work, love, goals and etc.
I AM CONTENT
Good Morning!! Today I wanted to post my morning routine more specifically for those of us who do not work from home. This is how I like to start my working mornings and it took some time for me to figure out which works best for me!
ALARM GOES OFF AT 5:30 AM!
I am not the type of person and have never been the type of person who sets multiple alarms to get up in the morning. I’ve always gotten up on the first alarm. Now with that being said, I am human at the end of the day and have had a few times where I fell right back asleep or sleep through my alarm (my body is telling me I need to rest more). Overall once my alarm goes off I’m up:
- I turn off my alarm
- I DO NOT GO ON SOCIAL MEDIA
- Brush Teeth/Wash Face
- I DO NOT TOUCH MY PHONE THE FIRST HOUR I WAKE UP
- Drink Lemon Water or One Cup of Water/ Tea. Depending on what I’m feeling that morning I may or may not squeeze fresh lemon in my water, but I will have a cup of water before drinking my tea. I will add my Vital Proteins Collagen Powder to my tea then go on with my skin care routine.
I put on my Murad Multi-Vitamin Infusion Oil and let it sit on my face close to 5 minutes before putting on my moisturizer.
I will then turn on a Podcast whether it is a Spiritual or Self-Care one and listen to it while I do my make-up and get dressed. I usually listen to either Joyce Meyer or Kalyn’s Coffee Talk as I am getting ready. Other than turning off my alarm or turning on a podcast I do not touch my phone during the morning.
