Are You Experiencing Life Transitions?

It’s okay to be gentle with yourself during transitions in your life. Whether it be moving to a new home, changing doctors/therapists, trying something new, starting a new job/change in finances, changing schools, losing friends, experiencing a breakup, grieving the loss of a love one, or letting go of someone you love and care about, transitions are difficult to cope with.

Learning to adjust and adapt to change is challenging and that’s okay. Know that you are not alone and you can give yourself time to grieve whatever it is you are moving forward from.

Give yourself permission to feel whatever emotions come up with change and reach out if you need to. Your feelings and experiences are valid no matter how “big” or “small” the change.

I love you.

You Are Not Your Mistakes

Every day we are given the opportunity to make different decisions, ones that are more reflective of the person we want to become, more of the person we are working on creating.

Create and craft the reality that reveals the growth and lessons learned along the path you’ve taken. Continue and move forward, not dwelling on the past, but in greater awareness of yourself.

Forgive yourself and do better, better as defined by you, just because you deserve it. You deserve peace, healing, growth, and abundance. You have peace, you are healing, you are growing, and you are abundant.

Take one step and one moment at a time as you face the pain you’ve carried up to this point.
Release and relax. Allow yourself the space to feel what you’ve been holding on to.

Take that leap to move in the direction of change. You are deserving of the reality you envision for yourself.

Affirmation: I am learning and growing every day. I make decisions that are best for me. I am deserving of love, acceptance and peace. I am ready.

Pencil Case Prompts: Let’s Set Some Goals!

Activity

What are 3 goals you would like to set this month?

Note: Goals can be  simple, complex, changed or even adjusted as time passes. It’s totally okay if you decide that a goal you’ve set isn’t the right fit for you. Goals are about you and what you want to accomplish for yourself.

My Reflection

The three goals I would like to set this month are:

1. To be gentle with myself, prioritize my mental health, and not compare myself to others.

2. To work on my certification and complete 4 tests.

3. To remind myself every day that I’m worthy, I’m enough, I’m doing the best that I can, and just because something hasn’t happened doesn’t mean it will never happen.

New Season Mantra

Practice this new season/new month mantra with me. We can approach this season together.

“With every step I take I allow myself grace and compassion. I listen to my intuition and I take my time. I’m patient with myself and I protect my heart as I navigate the next season of my life. I remind myself that I am safe as I continue to succeed. I am ready.”

I am Free

I made this and put it on my wall as a reminder that all of me is free.

I am not trapped to the confines of expectations. I am not obligated to hide my words as to adjust to the comfort of others. I am free from the limiting and ruminating thoughts. I am free to make my own decisions. I am free to be myself in every way. I exude excitement to share my interests and what makes me who I am.
I am present.
I hold space.
My voice matters.
I have good ideas.
I do what’s best for me.
I give myself permission to be free.
