My New Year Ritual: Reflect and Correct

Original IG post: @sikadee

Happy New Year! Wow, December was a busy month for me. Sorry, I’ve been MIA for a while but I’m happy to be back.

The end of the year and the beginning of a new year is always a reflective time for me. This year I was doing a lot of last-minute rushing around but I did finally get the chance to do what I like to call “my reflections and corrections” last Monday since offices were closed for New Year’s Day.

Think and Speak Clean

I’ve started becoming borderline obsessed with detoxing and cleansing. I’ve long been a fan of holistic health (thanks to my mom) but I have recently happened upon the idea that I can cure my pesky adult acne by making some dietary changes and lifestyle changes.

While altering my diet for one week straight and being THAT person at brunch who doesn’t drink the mimosas and asks the waiter if they have whole wheat bread, I started to think of the other beneficial kind of detox. Not the one that benefits our physical being, but the one that benefits our minds and mental well-being.

Time, Energy, and Hands

It’s Friday afternoon and there have been dirty dishes in the sink in all week long. These dirty dishes have taunted me as I ran in and out of the house all week. In from work, out for small group. In from work, out for a movie premier. In from work, out to a fictional world (via the pages of a book) while tucked in bed with a cup of tea. I just haven’t been able to shake these dishes in the sink.

The truth about that greener grass

tumblr_ntd8ehdygl1qapuajo1_500

Spoiler Alert if you haven’t seen the latest installment of the Divergent movie series, Allegiant (or read the books). I got a bit of inspiration from it when I saw it for Cheap Ticket Tuesday yesterday with my sis and cousin. I got to see a movie in theaters for $6.71! My mother did not delay in reminding me of a grand ol’ time when that was the standard price for movies, but I digress.

A Beautiful Detour

tumblr_n7hkrnvjfl1sdh6w5o1_500

I just watched a clip of one of Oprah’s talks  where she talked about how there are no mistakes in life. Every moment we have is leading to where we’re supposed to be. There’s no such thing as being on the wrong path because God, The Creator, or the Universe (your pick) has a supreme vision for our lives. And even if we get thrown off course, that just means that it’ll take longer to get to our true destination There will be many people who don’t believe in that concept but, even if you don’t, let’s all entertain it for a second.

Preparing for the New Year: Patience, Trust, and Change

As humans, we tend to get very attached to the things that we’re used to. We like the comfort and security of the familiar even if it isn’t necessarily what’s best for us.

Thought for Today: Breathe

tumblr_n8xk7jvqba1qzu6nxo1_1280

The other day my tumblr queue posted a quote: “Embrace the current season of your life” and that is my focus for today. It’s actually been my focus for a while now but also today specifically. (speaking of tumblr, my homepage is on fleek today haha)

“Embrace the current season of your life.”
