This post is for my dreamers and planners. Have you ever just sat in silence or avoid sitting in silence and asking yourself ” what now?”. I am the one that avoids that question because it brings out so many emotions that I don’t want to deal with and it causes me unnecessary stress. But it is good to look at where you are in life and how you would like to go forward. Now for the people who worry or panic (me) don’t look at it from the “Oh my God, I haven’t done enough or I am not where I would like to be”frame of mind. Let’s be positive and open, Shacara. Yeah, so this is for me. I can get caught up in where everyone is or seem to be in their lives, thanks to our wonderful social media world. I feel it is necessary to unplug from social media from time to time to make personal connections. Falling into the pit of sorrow because of where we are now can cause you to be ungrateful for what you have or accomplished so far. Yes, it’s great to want more, and you should try to better yourself as a person but don’t let it drive you there. Instead, look at what you have done and how to keep it going. I am big on making lists and let us not talk about how many planners I own. And yes I know you can only use it one at a time. I buy them because I would like to be prepared and to stay organized. I feel like once you organize your stuff, then your mind will be clear of clutter. It is hard to remember everything especially as a mom, wife, student as I am where your kids are active outside of school and you have a laundry  list of things to do at home. Consider having quiet time to yourself, like in the mornings before you start your day and meditate, pray, and read. To me, that makes for setting up your to be positive and with a clear mind. You may have dreamed of having a great career with a big house and maybe a few kids by now and you don’t. It is okay and it can still happen if you have faith and put in work. Some just want to do what they love and the money they make is just a plus (me), have great people around who are encouraging, truly loves you for who you are (big one) and working towards a better lifestyle. And having a better lifestyle looks different depending on their situation. As I get older it is not about all the bells and whistles of life (i.e big houses, cars, diamonds, vacations), it’s about doing what makes you happy and pleasing to your heart. Yes, you are going to go through trials and tribulations but you have to keep pressing on. Hope this encouraged someone who needs it, I feel better getting this off my chest.
