5 RESOLUTIONS FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH IN 2019

This New Year is the Same You, Just with Newer Capabilities —The term “New Year, New Me” often is thrown around from corner to corner, but lands in the same place every time. Our bad habits make turns, our trauma leads the way, and dirt covers up the truths we hide from the people we love the most. Why? That’s because though we might choose to start over every year, we are not perfect. Nor can we believe we are, or ever will be. There can be no permanent “new” in the lives we have lived, unless God intervenes. This year do not put pressure on yourself to be new, but rather renew your abilities to be better. Build a habit, so they can be long lasting, not short lived. This year is the renewal of your abilities to grow into a new skin that is boundless. This is what to anticipate of the next...

AN ODE TO 2018

As this year comes to a close, I want to extend my sincere gratitude to the people and the lessons that were shared this year. I want to take the time to be thankful for the people that I gained on my journey and cheers to the ones left behind. 2018 saw me grab the reigns on my mental health and peace of mind. I was put to the test this year more than I had been in the past, but 2018 let me know that I can withstand all trials and tribulations thrown at me and then some. Even though my spirit and mental health took a hit, I still was able to take that and build it into some life lessons that I want to share. Selfishness does not always have a negative connotation.  I spent a lot of time in 2018 not working on myself and leaving myself behind when things were getting overwhelming. We have t...

HOW DO WE MAKE 2018 OUR BEST YEAR YET?

Because I’m always late to the party, I’m going to write about how to make 2018 a better year. Yes, I know it’s late February, but here it goes anyway: I have no idea about how we make 2018 our year. I have no idea how to plan anything. I can’t even plan a birthday party! (All my birthday celebrations consist of cake and pizza because I just can’t seem to make even simple plans ahead.) And it’s not like I believe in energies, premonitions or anything like that, but I do believe in intuition, and this year just feels different. It just feels like it’s going to be better. This year started on a different note. I decided I was finally going to commit to writing. FULL TIME. I’m not going to lie and say that it was an easy decision to make; to be honest, it wasn’t even a decision I made conscio...

WELCOME 2018

“Baby, it’s so cold outside!” I entered 2018 with big thoughts, an open heart and the certainty that everything will be exactly as I want it for this year. Even though it’s freezing outside and the winter is cold, I know a few tricks which will help anyone feel warmer. We should never forget that the warmth comes from inside, therefore everything can change the mindset you have. I look behind and I see a year full of successes with big accomplishments, so I hope for you dear reader that the situation is the same. Be proud of everything you have managed to do in 2017 and don’t forget to be good in any circumstance. What a year of emotions and hard work 2017 has been for me! This was the year I decided to travel more often, share my stories with you, dear reader, admitted that I have m...

WHY I HATE NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTIES

As a millennial, you will probably remember the New Year’s parties from TV (during the 80s and 90s), and those sounds the clocks made when they marked midnight.  Well, those clocks marked my New Year’s Eve parties, and also remained in my memory for the rest of my life! Back then, I was little and I was so scared. I was crying expecting some Grinch to come and take me away from my family. Those clocks had that sinister and horrible sound, which instead of marking the end of the year, sounded like they were marking the end of the world or humanity itself. It was horror all those years, at least that is how I perceived them at that fragile age, to the amusement of all the grown-ups around me who were so happy that the year is finally over. WEIRD! I believe that since that moment I have this ...

SELF AWARENESS

Sunday scaries meet holiday scaries! You’re here. Right smack in the middle of the holiday craziness. You might be post Christmas, mid Chanukah and pre New Years Eve and let’s be honest there is just A LOT going on.  Maybe you’re feeling post holiday blues and the ever pending new year anxiety already kicking in. Well, Harness babes.  I want to remind you that to it’s okay to feel all of the things you are feeling at this current moment. If you’re overwhelmed, anxious, grateful, stressed, lost, happy, sad (insert any emotion you may be feeling at this very second) that is OK!  So often we are taught to repress how we feel and just power through. That we, as women, are weak if we are too emotional, or feel things too strongly. That we are bragging if we boast about how happy we are. However...
