Writing for Yourself

by Liam Cross Writing, just like anything else in life, must be done to please oneself. Must be done to let one take the sinews of their heart and the breath of their soul, and transcribe them somehow onto the page before them. It’s one of my most favourite feelings in the world, finishing […]

Become, YOURSELF AGAIN !!!!

 

BECOME YOURSELF?!  

Establish healthy habits at home & work to change your life. Its time to place a high priority on living healthy, being meticulous about not wasting your precious time to invest in yourself. Discipline and Motivation is very easy to become lazy. So you will have to really ask yourself this VERY IMPORTANT question. 

Do You Want to BECOME YOURSELF? 

 If the answer is Yes, then you have to make this your #1 priority.  

1st step:  Start with your alarm clock, Adjusting your wake & sleep times, your sleep quality will improve. Your work focus & energy will become positive and sharper.

2nd Step: Try something new, Fitness, exercise should not be boring or painful. If it is, you will end up disliking it and discouraged. Find something you like, for example, Even if it was something you have no clue about, like meditation, yoga, stretching or swimming etc. 

3rd Step: Challenge yourself everyday. Accomplish something that your not sure about. You can challenge yourself at anything, like simple activity, to something that's impossible. For example Challenge yourself to writing down how or what you would like to do, short term, long term goals, in a self reflection diary.  Stick to it everyday, commit yourself. Or challenge to cook for yourself, researching recipes and stick to it every week.  Or last but not least challenge yourself to take hobbies class painting, poetry, something relaxing and self reflecting to make you feel good about yourself. 

Warning & Reminder :

 THIS IS ABOUT YOU, NOT ABOUT OTHERS, SO ALWAYS REMIND YOURSELF TO NOT GET DISTRACTED , YOU ARE IN A PHASE OF WORKING ON YOURSELF. SO TAKE THE TIME FOR YOURSELF. POLITELY LET OTHERS KNOW , THIS IS YOUR ME TIME & IF IT WERE POSSIBLE YOU WOULD HAVE TO PASS ON ANY INVITATIONS. FYI. DONT OBLIGATE YOURSELF TO RAINCHECKS & LATER DATES. IT WILL ONLY MAKE YOU FEEL GUILTY OR OBLIGATED IF YOU WERE UNABLE TO KEEP A PROMISE. THIS IS ABOUT YOU, & KEEPING YOUR MIND DECLUTTERED.

GOOD LUCK ON YOUR "BECOMING YOURSELF JOURNEY" .

Where’s your Inner Childlike side?

Have you been all work and no play recently?

Are you feeling that you are “stuck” in life somehow?

When was the last time you connected with your inner child?

You should Awake your childlike side Immediately , Get out there and enjoy yourself!

Life is for living. Not for enduring. Perhaps you will play more with your own children or grandchildren. Or, you may simply enjoy having fun with another adult or beginning a new job or vocation that relates to helping young people.

What You Should Do:

It’s time to connect with your inner child. Can you find them inside you?

Or, have you forgotten who they are? Plan some time for you to explore what it feels like to be carefree and to enjoy life to the full again. Go to the beach and build a sandcastle. Take your dog for that long walk you’re always too busy for. Find time to enjoy the world around you. Your inner child will thank you for it!

Your Affirmation:
“I love and honour my inner child. I feel whole and joyous!”

Conversation with Kids?!

Making conversations with kids can be awkward but absolutely lovely, and A Hilariously fun thing to do.  Make conversations with Kids. Talking to kids nowadays can be very hard. Especially if you do not have children of your own.   A great start, Be available to make conversation with them. Kids don’t usually make plans to have conversations with us Adults, We have to be available to them in order to stimulate conversation with the child. If we’re with them, we’re bound to hear what they have to say.   Children are very immediate, when it comes to their feelings & emotions, When a child wants to talk, make yourself available. Create space to have conversations with them, prepare yourself. Resist the urge to correct the child in the conversation, if a child is telling you something inaccurate, ask the child what does he or she thinks happened, so that way, they can express their thoughts. Draw out their curiosity, rather then forcing on them, an accurate explanation. You can fact check afterwards, also be interested and into what their into, their likes and dislikes. Watch something together with the child, and ask open ended questions, relating to kids nowadays is a challenge, these few techniques can apply to help engage a conversation with 4-15 year olds. Especially for Adults who have no clue or possibly no children and not one solid idea on how to have a Kid conversation. Have fun, Kids are awesome!
