Powerful Words and Thought-Provoking Questions: Consistency

Consistency is the agreement you make with what’s important to you. While consistency takes work, it also takes patience, persistence, and mindfulness. Without consistency, there is an imbalance of priorities and effort in what you invest your time doing. What are you consistent with? What are you not consistent with? What does your consistency tell you about your priorities?


Here are some questions to consider when you evaluate the relationship you have with consistency:

1. Are you putting effort, time, patience, and work into what’s important to you?

2. Are you keeping your word?

3. Are you making excuses?
4. Are you considering other people’s needs besides your own?
5. Is there mutuality and balance in your relationships?
6. Are you avoiding or distracting yourself from the things that hurt you?
7. Are those distractions hurting or helping your priorities?
8. Are you keeping up with your distractions or your healing?
9. What can you improve in your relationships, goals, and priorities moving forward?

I Participated In The NAMI-NYC Seeds of Hope Gala!

I’m so excited to share that I participated in the NAMI-NYC Seeds of Hope Gala! It was an amazing experience for me to share some of my story and use my voice to help such an impactful non-profit organization. I’ve been volunteering with NAMI-NYC for almost a year and a half, first as an ending the silence young adult presenter, to an expressive arts workshop host, to a young adult support group facilitator.

I am Ready to Let Go: An Affirmation

The Process of Letting Go

  • What do you want to let go of?
  • What are you leaving behind?
  • How can you make space within yourself to feel peace and goodness?
  • How do you want to feel?

Affirm that you are ready to let go and move on to make the space within yourself for what you deserve.


My Reflection

I am letting go of:

  • Perfectionism
  • Hopelessness
  • Anxiety
  • What ifs and whys.
  • Toxic bonds
  • Attachments
  • Guilt
  • Regret
  • Shame
  • Rejection
  • Failed relationships
  • Confusion

I now welcome and affirm that I am deserving of good things. I leave behind ignorance, mistakes, and regret. I am ready for new beginnings.

**I will share any updates or changes and keep everyone posted.

Here are some details for the event:

Title
Leaves
Description
“Leaves” is a creative and fun event focused on reflecting on ourselves and the year we are moving past. Starting with an ice breaker, we will think about a lesson we’ve learned this year and what we are grateful for. The main activity will then be to draw and create a pile of leaves. On each leaf, we will write either something we want to let go of or something we are looking forward to. Lastly, we will close by sharing our works of art!
Materials
Paper, writing utensils (pen, pencil, markers, or crayons).
Hope to see you there!
