🆙The Chief Purpose Connector's Lesson 231: THINGS TO REFLECT ON...🧘🏾♂️❤️🧘🏾♀️💯🔥🆙 We go through our day doing so much and that's why it is important to reflect. I am convinced that developing the #habit to #reflect has provided me more opportunities than I can speak about. I have managed to tap into a deeper level of learning because I choose to find THINGS TO REFLECT ON from my day and life. This #powerful habit offers you insight that no one or nothing else can provide. When I first started I thought it would be hard, but I realized quickly how freeing it was to focus on how I was growing and the impact I want to have on the world. So many #successfulpeople talk about this habit and so I don't see why anyone would refuse to add it to their #growth tool box. Today, I am reflecting on a few thoughts that Jeff Besos mentioned on various occasions. They include:
1. become stubborn with our vision,
2. get clear with ourselves, and
3. Project yourself to age 80 and then think about what you wouldn't want to regret then.
Now, You go ahead and choose somethings to reflect on.
Here are five Connection Point Principles about THINGS TO REFLECT ON:
1. Look at your current life and ask yourself: Am I satisfied with what I do and who I am?
2. Take time to reflect on what truth means to you.
3. Make a note to yourself to reflect on your relationships. Are they fruitful?
4. Always pay attention to what you are learning every day and reflect on it.
5. Find a place to reflect and be intentional about going there.
Last night I had really bad night terrors. Insects were surrounding me everywhere I stepped, covered me head to toe, and went down my throat suffocating me. I woke up physically itching all over and spent the morning really irrationally angry. Not a good start to the weekend.
The last thing I wanted to do was to leave the house. But I had an appointment so I forced myself to shower, wash my hair, and get myself over to the nail salon.
This helped a little bit, and I choose a sunny yellow colour to remind myself to stay positive. Back home, my room was a mess - a week's worth of washing and an unpacked suitcase strewn across the floor.
Again, the last thing on earth I wanted to do was to tackle this situation. I told myself, do half an hour of cleaning. So I blasted out my angry music playlist (My Bloody Valentine, if anyone was wondering) and soon enough that half an hour became an hour which became an hour and a half.
Guess what? My room is now spotless and I no longer feel angry. I have a candle burning, American Horror Story on my laptop to start watching, and a feeling of contentment and achievement in my heart.
The worst thing you can do is wallow in your negative emotions. Learn to channel that energy into something productive. Not only will the anger/sadness/guilt lesson, but the positive emotions will start to break through.
Here's to the rest of the weekend ☀
My Facebook reminded me this picture from 6 years ago. I was younger, thinner, be a dress model for friend's friend who own a clothing store. I thought I was pretty and attractive, dated a lot trying to validate something. Today as 6 years from then, I grew older, gained some weight, but mentally I am stronger, know what I want, where and who I should spend time with, improving myself physically, mentally and spiritually. I am not defined just by my appearance, but everything. I am happy where I am now and what I am doing, no comparison with others, just with myself!!
It took 2 men to get this sofa in my house, but 1 woman to get it out! 🙋🏻♀️ it’s odd how an object can represent such unhappiness but today I finally have a new sofa - only nice people can sit on it! 🙃
i need @indiaarie to know this song is blessing my whole life today! #onrepeat we hold on to sooooo much, knowingly and unknowingly, but there comes a point that we hafta let that *ish go... just let it go. little by little or by the boatload, just let it go... 💖 ‘you carried the weight
of your heart
like a million rocks on your shoulders
but life isn't meant to be perfect
and we won't always win
but can you remember
that your healing is in your hands?
just let it go, inch by inch
just let it go, and do it again
just let it go, one day you'll see
just let it go, you set yourself free
just let it go...’ -india arie
CROSSROADS // Principle 7: Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will. Step 10: We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free - John 8:32
I used to compare freedom to getting all green lights on my commute. I either needed to be “lucky” or aggressive to attain it.
I desired the fastest route to freedom and I was willing to speed, run red lights and cut people off to get there. Until coming to CR I never stopped long enough to question if I was even going the right way.
Principle 7 and Step 10 taught me that true freedom often comes from slowing down, reflecting on my actions and asking for the strength to stay focused on these two priorities: love God and love others.
One major highlight from Thursday’s lesson is this: Challenge yourself to make time for reflection. Be honest with yourself and God about the last 24 hours. Ask yourself questions like: “In what ways did I surrender to God’s will today?” “How did I treat others?” “Do I owe any amends?” “What have I learned?” “Remember to keep it balanced.” Record your victories as well as your shortcomings and trust that God will honor your honesty.
