Be the Prayer

Getting unstuck. We all have our moments when we feel stationary. We are unsatisfied with where we are, but we aren’t quite sure how to get to where we want to be. These are the times I find that I have allowed my mind to become cluttered and I have lost my focus. These are the times I know I need to push through the mental block and start doing the work, instead of just thinking about it.

My frustration comes from not fully stepping into the potential of whatever I have been focused on achieving at that time. For example, waiting on a promotion at work that hasn’t come. Instead of waiting, step into the person you want to be when you receive that promotion. I’m not talking about spending money that you don’t have, i’m talking about becoming the person you want to be, not waiting for an event or a title to give you the authority to live your life the way you truly want to. Rise up, and be the prayer.

Become the person you want to be. There is a gap between the actions we are taking on a daily, and the circumstance, situation, or environment we want to change. Identify what steps it would take to make that leap, and then start tackling them. Develop a morning routine , set actionable goals, and hold yourself accountable. Take time to refocus and realign yourself daily with the vision so you don’t become distracted and fall off course. Take it one day at a time, one task at a time; life is a marathon, not a race.

“Visualize you highest self, and start showing up as that person”.

The Miracle Morning | Book Review

Recently I finished a book that helped me put words to the feeling I have always known about mornings. “The Miracle Morning” written by Hal Elrod is a quick but very insightful read. It gives step by step instruction as to how to maximize your time to work towards becoming a better version of yourself; it’s not a course, rather it serves as a guideline to develop disciple and habits for an overall lifestyle change.

Write the Vision, Make it Plain | Refill

Outline your goals and work backwards, each step needed to get to the next level and make a conscience effort to complete the task. Documenting and executing brings clarity and a sense of accomplishment, it’s somewhat like an evolving business plan, dreams and goals are dynamic, they change and shift as we grow. “Stop being reactive, and start being proactive.”

Read: Bible verse Habakkuk 2:2

Pray: Ask empowering questions, repeat affirmations, and develop a personal mantra

Power | Refill

Power | Refill

Sometimes while reading I come across a teaching or a quote that resonates deeply, that feeling of “this me, I needs this” sets in and I spend a little more time applying the lesson to my daily life.

Two quotes that have stuck with me throughout the course are: "Nothing can hurt you unless you give it the power to do so." And "Teach no one he has hurt you, for if you do, you teach yourself that what is not of God has power over you. The two quotes about power struck a chord with me; often times in life we are put in situations that make us feel attacked and vulnerable and we act out in self defense and fear.

Transition | New Beginnings

My motivation to create The Chic Script was to start a hobby, have some me time, and focus on areas of interest outside of my career.  Like so many millennials I have spent a lot of time in school, 10 years to be exact.   When I graduated from professional school I naively believed that all my happiness was just on the other side of crossing the stage and earning my doctorate, so instead of using my new study-less free time to foster new areas of growth in my life, I immediately began working harder so I would get promoted and became so consumed with my career I started to feel like I was working all the time.

One day I had enough, things had to change; I realized happiness was a CHOICE I had to make.  I decided to ask myself some simple and very honest questions: 

1. What would I wear if I didn't have to put on scrubs everyday? 

2. What would I do with my time if I didn't have to go to work everyday?  

3. How can I be the best version of myself?
