There is a difference between settling for less and settling in.
One is lowering your standards, the other is sticking around even when the magic wears off.

To Settle or Not to Settle? (Interrupting Inconvenience Part 1) is up on The Salt Compass! Check out the link in my bio and this one will be at the top of the Most Recent Posts category.
Continuation from my #previouspost ... Why am I strong & happy? I’m STRONG because my tank says so. I’m also strong because I increased my weights this morning. I didn’t squat far down or go as fast as peeps in my television; but I increased and gave it my all.
I’m HAPPY because I CHOOSE to be. I could be a miserable cow (there is a lot I could be angry and bitter about), but I’m happy. I have all I need here in this little house with people who love me for me. I have a family and a very small group I call friends who accept me. I have an opportunity to shine on the horizon. •
You can literally feel your heart break. 💔 I’ve known that pain, I’ve been there. Moments when I couldn’t function or even form a simple thought because the pain cut so deep. 💔
Today, I wanted you to know you’re not alone.
So many of us have been where you are, have felt what you’re feeling. ♥️ It’s totally possible for you recover from this and come out on the other side stronger than ever. ♥️ It may not seem like it now, but you’re holding a very powerful deck of cards.
You can go from suffering to struggling. Struggling to coping. Coping to understanding and so on and so on up the ladder until you reach pure joy and happiness again. 🙏
I know it feels more like a mountain right now ⛰ but trust me, with the right support, each day gets better and better. Before you know it, you’ll be on top of that damn mountain!! ♥️ It isn’t enough to “get over” this, you’ve got to HEAL from it. Otherwise you’ll end up repeating the same shitty patterns that will eventually catch up to you and you’ll be heartbroken once more. 💔

Breaking habits is tough. Not everyone can be an early adopter, especially of something so seemingly radical as living low waste. Somehow mason jars of soap and metal straws just aren’t as cool as iPhones. Clearly we need to change this, because come on, really?!🤓🌱 #sustainabilitynerd .
As humans we get stuck in the monkey brain trap of not wanting to work really hard upfront to make our lives easier later on. So, for those of us who have put in the time to lean into a more sustainable lifestyle, it’s important we be the brightest and humbly vocal ambassadors of our values. Education is a right and we have the credentials— life experience trumps textbooks.
The more we teach about using reusables the more we can change our convenience-based culture. This is not a one man job, we need you to keep striving!
P.s. no one said this is easy, but it’s 100% to the power of infinity worth it.

No part of me desires
to be a space filler.
A shadow in the background.
A fruit to pick only when you are hungry.
The hunger will always be.
Because you are empty,
Constantly looking to be filled with peoples presence.
I don’t want to be here
For your picking
Every time you feel alone.
I want to be chosen because
You feel the urge to be around my sunshine,
Because you have the urge to be by my side. 🌻🌞🌻
All right y’all.
Today is a lifting in pressure again, which might make you think different thoughts than when you were under so much cosmic pressure, but the point of what we’ve been through is to become the diamond. Do not look back. Do not “unbecome” or let your vision unravel simply because you feel differently today. Those feelings are surface and changing, like clouds in the sky, and we just learned what the sky is really made of.
Continue talking with the sky and understanding your emotional literacy of weather patterns/perspective of the ever present sky.
Today, AFFIRM yourself. Affirm your beliefs. Affirm your goals and desires and self-love. Just because it might not feel as bad today doesn’t mean that you DON’T deserve what feels absolutely phenomenal. Don’t lower the bar of your expectations or standards because you *could* accept the current circumstance, because the truth is, you can’t. It would be a slower death, not quite living.
Keep vibrating radiance. Keep dreaming of the Ultimates for yourself. Keep choosing to feel ridiculously blessed, even though little has changed.
This is the kind of energy that insists upon quick delivery from the universe. Best thoughts foreword, everybody.
When you put something out into the universe the important part is to not settle for less than what you want
On the outside an option might me kind of right by if it doesn’t feel 100% right don’t settle
There have been jobs that I had accepted that seemed ok on the outside but weren’t fully right for me and I ended up not being 100% satisfied with my choice
Or that feeling of entering a relationship for the sake of being in a relationship because you don’t want to be single
Whatever it is don’t ever settle. Everything you want is coming to you if you allow it to✨
You’ve got to learn to get out of your comfort zone. I started running again and started on the treadmill. That became easy. Air conditioning and a flat surface!!! So I started running down the road. No ac and some small hills. Nothin major but when I first started it was hard. Almost called my mom to come pick me up 🤣🤣. But that became easy so I changed again. The first time I ran this trail with this hill around my parents place I thought I was gonna die!!! I’ve been running this for a week. It kills me every time but I had to get out of my comfort zone to empower myself to keep becoming more and to not settle where I was at. Are you settling for less than you deserve. Get out of your comfort zone!!! Do more. #getoutofyourcomfortzone#becomemore#dontsettle#running
One of my very first dates felt like it was better to jump out the bathroom window than to go out with me. From then on the standard for all my dates was never, “What do I like about him?” or, “Is he good enough for me?” It was, “Does he like me enough to stay on this date?” and, “Am I good enough for him?” I ended up in 2 failed marriages with that standard.
