Hello, Smiling Faces!
I missed you guys! I have been away for a short time, but let me tell you, it was the BEST and so necessary! How often do you hit the reset button? I meannnn… to truly hit the reset button with a recharge? Well… I did!
It’s okay to step away and be in a quiet space, to gather your thoughts and reflect. I took the time to do just that prior to my birthday, and truth be told, I didn’t think I could. I was off Social Media for 30 days! I’ve stepped away for a week or so in the past, but not for that length of time. I was focused on rejuvenating myself, time with family…and ohhhh doing some bucket list stuff! I truly enjoyed celebrating my birthday with family and friends, with the phone placed to the side. I enjoyed memorable moments, without the rush of a photo moment!
Thirty days away from Social Media is not a long time, but hey, let’s be honest. I love pictures, posting inspirational quotes and following those that inspire me and give me a good laugh every once in awhile. I needed to work on my Inner-Self. Some serious Self-Care and still in that mode. I did receive calls and messages checking on me. I guess I was missed. Thank You!
With so much going on from personal, professional and business aspects of life, I needed to step away to just be quiet and focus on a few things. My battery was running on fumes. Not that I was “busy” but doing “productive” things, where I was spending too much time on Social Media platforms and losing focus on what was important. Be mindful of how you feed your soul. I will continue to take these breaks and you should as well.
Some of you are dealing with a dead battery. You have allowed your dreams to be dead based on fear, insecurities, negative outlook on life, comparing yourself to others or not making yourself a priority. You wake up every day with a dull, sluggish attitude. You rarely smile, laugh, say something positive or you have lost your will to be happy. I knew if I wanted change for my life, I had to look in the mirror and MOVE. Move with goals, prayers, motivation, dedication and the will to NOT GIVE UP! I needed a Sherill Break!
Where and what are your priorities? Taking care of you is not selfish; it is vital for your well-being and success. Some of you may have families, taking care of loved ones, working two full-time jobs to pay for school, or just stuck in a negative situation. Taking care of you will strengthen your attention to be a better person for yourself and those around you.
Christmas is a week away! Most people will be off from work or school enjoying some off days during the holidays. This is a perfect time to step away and recharge. Trust me, I will be doing this as well!
Here are a few tips to begin your recharge:
- Breath: Take a deep breath. Relax.
- Reflect: Reflect on 2019. What achievements or milestones did you reach? Don’t rush to perrrfffectttt 2020.
- Imagine: Look at everything with an open mind. Avoid being judgemental or critical. Possibilities are everywhere. Be Intentional.
- Share: Spend time with family and friends. Disconnect from your phone and enjoy each moment.
- Be THANKFUL. We all have so much to be thankful for.
Happy Holidays and Many Blessings for 2020! I have a few things on radar to share very soon! It’s going to be an AWESOME 2020!
