Random Morning thoughts: Summer Edition
Ive been waking up early for the past week or so.. early as in 5am or earlier early.
Not sure why.
Might have to do with the swimming and the sun lol and maybe the earlier bed times 😂😉
But yes.. so today I decided to relax on our back porch after some cleaning and my morning work out ..and that is where this idea was born.
I sat here relaxing..catching up on social media, emails, etc.
Read some more of my book.
Drank some tea.
And meditated a bit.
Now.. I’m far from a meditation guru.. so dont come bearing your torches! Lol
My meditation time consists of simply, being in the moment. Listening to the birds chirp, hearing that rascally squirrel climbing each limb of the berry tree to get the berries and then.. finally falling down a few branches..
Trying to block out the dang horse fly that keeps buzzing by my ear and ensuring sophie doesnt fall off my lap.. lol..
After awhile I’ll start to relax and just start..
“Yesterday was fun, man My Sisters are crazy”
.. about right now..
“i knew that squirrel was going to fall- I warned him!”
..about what the plans are going to be today ..
“wonder what time mannys going to wake up, should I wake him up now.. I’ll let him sleep more, he was up late”
.. and then I start to think ..more..
“Why havent I put myself out there more”
“What can I do to help me become who I want to be”
And so goes my “meditation/sessions”
So.. after all is said and done .. today specifically, I was going write a fb post.. because you know.. I had thangs on my mind that I thought others would relate to.. and.. shtuff..
Welp, it became a long post.. way too long in my opinion to remain a mere “status” and .. one thing led to another.. the stars and moon (or in this case the sun and uhm.. sky?) All aligned..and Morning Musings was born.
Plus, it gets me back to blogging and utilizing this domain that i continuously pay for and hardly use.. 😊😉
So .. onto Todays MM’s..
My neighborhood seems to officially “wake up” around 9/9:30 am on Saturdays..
Good to know lol..
at least I got to enjoy the calm & quietness this morning lol..
kids screaming and crying …
dogs fighting and barking..
adults screaming ..
lawn mowers going..
even the birds look annoyed lmao..
But no complaints.. because every sound is a sound of life.
I was able to get some reading in.. some meditation time and some me time..
I’ve come to realize (yes again!) that I am a perfectionist with insanely high standards..
It’s both a good thing and a curse.
Good because.. truly, if I recommend something to someone – or selling something etc .. its because I truly enjoy it, think it’s worth it and it checks off almost all of my “boxes” I hold that item to in my head.
Curse because – it has stopped me from putting myself out there more ..
I judge myself/my own products at an even higher standard..
there are so many more people – LESS qualified with CRAPPIER products or LESS knowledge and professionalism
DOING EXACTLY what I want to do!
Because they just “do it”..
Whether it be something I make or a job position or.. hell even people!.. if it’s got my name tied to it or associated with it or whatever – it has to pass this mental check list I have..
I’ve gotten a little better with “loosening the reigns” .. but I still struggle with it more than I like to admit..
I’ve read many books .. but one resignated with me extremely well.. by jen sincero…”You Are a baddass.. how to stop doubting your greatness” (seriously check it out! – I’m about to re read it all over because I loved it so much!)
This right here is just one quote that sat with me. The ENTIRE book.. GOLD!
So, I’m hoping that in the next few days, maybe weeks.. I’ll learn to put myself out there a bit more.. and just DO.. as if nothing is out of reach!
Seems like a simple answer.. but when you’re like me and stuck so much inside your own head.. it’s a challenge.
So here’s to more doing and less overthinking!
So, now some quick help from you guys!
What are some of your ways you’ve learned to get out of your own head?
Or perhaps a book you read to help?
Also, what are some ideas/topics you might want me to cover or maybe questions you have about me?
Perhaps something dealing with my younique business? Or a look you might want to see?
Perhaps you have a burning question about something you wanted to ask?
Here’s your chance!
Let me know in the comments below! 🙂
