1st of September already! time surely flew by this year, or is it just me? There are only 4 months/124 days left before 2022
Today is officially Spring in South Africa (although it doesn’t quite feel like it yet), and I was looking for spring quotes and came across this one: Live life in full bloom. And immediately I felt inspired after having such a long day and felt the need to share.
What it means to live life in full bloom
Living life in full bloom means living with hope and purpose, with imagination and vision, in a way that honors the Earth, the spirit, and one another ~ Elizabeth Murray
I also see it as living life to the fullest, giving your all and your best, bringing happiness to yourself and others, doing what you love, and going after your wildest dreams.
How to live life in full bloom
I think the best way to live life in full bloom is by being/becoming our ideal selves. Think about it, your best self is most probably happy, energized, creative, passionate, loving, fun, and whatever it may be for you.
Becoming your ideal self is a concept I have recently started to take more seriously, it is a concept I believe everyone should understand. After all, we are either moving forward or moving backward. Embrace the glorious mess that you blend in so well with this concept because it means to fully accept yourself as you are while also working on yourself and becoming your best/ideal self.
🐾Prioritise what is important to you.
Do what makes you happy, and everything else will fall into place.
🐾Put energy into your goals/hobbies
🐾Take more risks
You should make it a point to step outside of your comfort zone, it almost always guarantees growth.
🐾Show your appreciation to the ones you love.
🐾Be more present
Your past is important to learn from. Your future is important to work towards. Though the only thing that truly exists is now. You can practice gratitude and mindfulness to be more present.
🐾Get clear on who your ideal self is for you.
Do something today that brings you closer to that ideal version of you.
🐾Just do anything that makes your soul happy, joyous, calm, grateful, loved, etc.
🐾Today my teacher told me we have to have small things that bring us happiness, and it is very true. For me, it is reading, improving myself in one way or another, sitting outside on the grass, and drinking my favorite coffee.
How to re-energize your spirit when you feel drained
I felt drained these past few days and also heard classmates complain about the same thing, and this morning I was listening to a video where Abraham Hicks basically says that our emotions are our indicator for whether we are in harmony with who we are or whether we aren’t. It is our job to keep track of our negative emotions and work through them or make much-needed changes.
🦋 Find a way to unleash your inner child through something that brings you true joy, something that makes you smile brightly from the inside out.
🦋 Do some exercises, whether full on fitness or yoga, or even dancing, it doesn’t have to be a lot, just get your body moving.
🦋 Like I’ve mentioned before, gratitude! You can start a gratitude journal.
🦋 Get a good night’s rest while listening to Subliminals/affirmations while you sleep.
🦋 Watch something inspirational/motivational or a comedy or watch a show that you’ve already seen but would totally watch it again.
🦋 Take a step back from everything that makes it feel as if it is weighing down on your shoulders, and shift your focus.
I hope you enjoyed this post
Much love and abundance 🙏❤
