Sometimes we do so much for others, not realizing that we do so little for ourselves. We forget that we can’t be everything to everybody. We forget that sometimes it’s okay not to be okay. We forget that we can’t save and heal everybody. And that’s okay- but what’s not okay is trying to pour from an empty cup. We are all on our own paths— to feel, to experience, to taste, touch, grow and glow just as our journey has intended for us. And so in doing that, we need to be #mindful and be sure that we are putting forth the effort to make conscious decisions that are in alignment with our greatest and highest good. We need to continuously be filling ourselves up with #unconditionallove , #life , and new #experiences . Taking the time out to take care of You (yes, You, with a capital Y, because nothing is as important as the relationship You have with YourSelf)— whatever act of self-care resonates with you: journal, dance, sing, create, phone a friend, laugh, rest, soak in the bath, take a trip, or simply be still— but most importantly #play . Be free, allow YourSelf to connect with your #truth , your #authenticity , your inner child. Allow the #peace and #magic conjuring up inside of You a chance to #manifest . Allow your beautiful #transformation to take place. Allow YourSelf to let go of all that no longer serves You, let it be cleansed and washed away. Allow your cup to #overflow . I love You, unconditionally! -RW💜🦄🧞♀️✨
That is the reason why I take my time in relationships a lot of gals go into it with their hearts and not with their head or brains...being still and pay attention to things around you will know what kind of partner you have and this goes both ways man or woman. I don’t need a relationship that wouldn’t end up in marriage or some kind of commitment. Spending, investing time with someone who isn’t your husband or wife will set you back .. especially ladies please becareful whom you spend your precious time with it’s bcuz it something that you can’t take back #foodforthought#reflecting#experiences#growingeveryday
Gifts came up a couple times today; birthday gifts and bridal shower/wedding gifts.
Honestly, I have moved away from asking for or desiring most tangible gifts but I thought about a few different category of gifts I appreciate most.
First, homemade gifts mean so much more to me then most conventional gifts. I ALWAYS wanted a blanket like this and love knowing it was made with hours and hours of love from my stepmom.
Second is the gift of a new experience. It’s fun going to a new vineyard, trying a new restaurant, going on a boat ride, or visiting a new city.
Third, gifts of donations are also treasured. For the last couple birthdays, I’ve received some fun gifts like an annual pass to the local Chinese garden or a donation made to an organization in my name.
Finally is a good thoughtful gift. Last year I also got a candle that was wax in my favorite brewery’s can and without their knowledge it was also my favorite scent (pamplemouse).
These are the types of gifts that fill my bucket and make me feel the most appreciated. What about you? .
Collecting money or experiences?
As I grew (a little 😂) older, I found out that going after material stuff and rewarding myself and others with “things” it’s not what life it’s all about. Now let us think about #experiences as beautiful, fragile little soap bubbles that you store in your heart, and every once in a while you pull one out and gaze at the delicate pictures it shows you. How do you #feel ?
Experiences take time and the best gift anyone can ever give you is their #time . So when I get something I evaluate it in terms of “how much time (or attention) did someone spent for this #gift ?”. Well, and as with make-up, I am happy I can get to offer someone a little of my time and that’s beyond anything material. Besides, how do you feel after you’ve had an experience? Or after someone offered you a feeling? Or a #dayoftheirlife ? Think about it and let me know how you appreciate (or not) these things!
Have a great day! 🤞

I love travelling because it is about experiences. One of the main ones for this trip is scooting around Mykonos in my trusty quad bike. Nothing dangerous but it gives me the freedom to go all around the island at my own pace. #experiences
Dream and dream, wait and wait, but nothing will happen if you don't chase!
Something I wrote at 3am listening to another conversation, in order to get what you want you can't let it come to you but sometimes make the opportunity.
Friday Funny 🤣🤣🤣. And I think the next part should be :
“ By 47 you are enjoying life so much - eating healthily, being active everyday, trying new experiences & loving the skin you are in. You are a Strong Sista “ 💪💜 Have an awesome day 👊
Well what can I say this is me in a nut shell for ppl who care to know me..being on this earth for as long as I have been, it took me a while to find out who i am from having a failed relationship after another to knowing what is right for me.. one thing I know or I am sure of me is I have no filter I have learned to be strong I have learned to not let the opposite sex know that I am vulnerable but heck when your heart speaks you either fall on your face or your heart carries you blissfully well as for me I am yet to know what my heart will do being in a relationship. Now talking about moving on I have walked away from relationship gambling with my heart due to disrespect I get when I open this fragile heart but I ain’t a saint but I know I am not jezebel. My radar for bullshit has become so strong that at times it scares me and I wonder if I will ever be with anyone. My mom says I quit too early in a relationship but the honest truth is happiness shouldn’t be complicated,compromised, shouldn’t entail 80percent of drama, shouldn’t be “let me manage “ once my happiness is compromised I run away. I pray for all those that are looking to be fierce in life should be with whom their heart desires. #iprayformyown#ijustwanttobehappy#iamtheeverygirl#iamfierceloved#foodforthought#experiences#womensupportingwomen#womanofgod
