Swinging and Humming

đź’« Last week was full of insight for me. With the constant going, pushing and striving to do more, be more, create more and get booked more, I hit a wall.

I found myself way past exhaustion. I could barely hold my head up.

After a much need coaching session (yes, coaches need coaching too), I took time to identify what was challenging me, and then I made a plan to improve those things.

I realized that I had not taken any time to celebrate my accomplishments before moving to the next “thing” on my list. The constant pushing and striving caught up to me and left me feeling totally and completely spent.

In need of a rapid improvement plan, I left my house, hair undone, natural face with a t-shirt and shorts on, and I found a swing.

I swung until my heart was content, tension released, and contentment filled my spirit.

I know it sounds simple, but sometimes that is all you need to change the energy and momentum around you.

From this experience, I learned that just like I schedule those 4:45am treadmill sessions, I need to schedule celebration sessions too.

(Let me warn you ahead of time. The audio within this video is LOUD. In addition to humming, you will also hear the sound of traffic passing by. If you are in a quiet setting, proceed with caution!)

 

So what am I celebrating?

đź’« Completing Professional and Executive Coaching Training Intensive through the CaPP Institute

đź’« Completing Equity in Contracting Training through CPCC

đź’« Acceptance into the Women’s Entrepreneurship Program at

eCornell University and completing my first course with a perfect score.

đź’« Becoming a member of ForbesBLK

đź’« Acceptance into the 2023-24 Milestone Circles Program at the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center

đź’« Gaining two new coaching clients

After taking a moment to reflect, I realize that I have a lot to celebrate (I am sure that I left something off of my list).

Celebrations are important.

If you have a hard time celebrating your achievements, you are not alone, but just like I hit a brick wall last week from overwhelm and exhaustion, you can too.

Let’s hold one another accountable for showing up as our best self by taking important moments to celebrate.

I invite you to join the Origins of Peace Community by visiting http://www.originsofpeace.com.

You will receive a bi-monthly newsletter and priority notice of events and happenings within the community.

Good Vibes for Managing Worklife & Summer-fine Goals

Affirmation: I am intentionally making time for self-care this summer. I will soak up the sun, release compressed emotions and spend quality time with people who make me feel good.

It is possible to enjoy summer to the fullest while maintaining a full work schedule.

You can have a productive summer and find time to recharge by managing your time between summer-fine goals and your professional aspirations.

Manage your time and prioritize self-care so that you can actively and intentionally take care of yourself. Preparing for work the night before, beginning your day earlier and being productive at work allows you to not feel guilty for clocking out as soon as your shift ends, in order to still enjoy the day.

One very important thing that you can do to ensure you have time for self-care this summer is to put yourself first. Prioritize things that are important to you and be sure to make room for those things. If beach trips are important, plan them. If fitness is important, make time for it. If romance is a priority, make room for it.

Be consistent with things that are important to you and keep them close!

Enjoy this short video where I list some of the resources that I am utilizing this summer to manage self-care and create more balance.

If you find it challenging to manage work-life and summer-fine goals, email success@orignsofpeace.com and allow us to help you create a time management plan.

Remember: Commitment is what turns a promise into reality. Commit to your own personal self-care.

Peace,

Melissa

No Longer A Servent

John 15:13 NKJV No longer do I call you servants for a servant does not know what his Master is doing; but I have called you friends for all things that I heard from my Father I have made known to you.

Dear Lord,

Thank you for calling me friend. I am so grateful that you have chosen to share your life with me. It is because of your belief in me that I can walk in confidence knowing that you trust me with the will of your Father and that you have given me specific purpose into your plans for my life. I thank you that you have left nothing to chance but you have hand-crafted every situation that I will encounter. I thank you that all things concerning me are deliberate an intentional. I feel confident knowing that those things are working for good in my life. Even in trying times I trust you and as your word says, weapons will be formed but they will not prosper in my life. I am grateful that you love me enough not to leave me in my current state and that I am getting stronger and wiser in you with each passing day. Lord you have been so good to me and I love you. Thank you for giving me the gift of friendship and teaching me how to be a true friend.

With humility, open-mindedness and willingness, I will collaborate with you on this day.

In Jesus name.

In the Right Hands

Psalm 139:10 NKJ ….“And your right hand shall hold me”

I prayed this prayer for you; please pray the same for me.

Dear God,

In the midst of all uncertainty, help me to know that I am safe in your Presence. Give me confidence in knowing that there is nothing to difficult for you to handle. Let my mind rest in the assurance that you are fully capable of sustaining me and well able to keep me from the hands of the enemy. However the enemy decides to show up, help me to acknowledge that he is already defeated, In Jesus Name!

Peace and Wellness,

SuGa

An Overwhelming Love!

1 Peter 1:6-8 NIV… 6 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.

Had it not been for the Lord on my side…where oh where would I be!

I heard those marvelous words today…You are Cancer Free!”

20150825_171232

For once in my life I am at a loss for words when it comes to the goodness of my God!

I will let the WORD speak for itself today while I sit back and bask in HIS goodness!

Peace and Wellness,

SuGa

Full of Grace

“From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.”

John 1:16

Dear Lord,

Thank you for this day. Thank you for life, strength and grace today.

I thank you Lord that you are all knowing and fully capable to handle all of our needs. From the fullness of your grace we are sustained and able to keep going.

Lord today is a day unlike any other. Help us to enjoy all the beauty that it holds and to seek your face in everything that we do.

We thank you for your hand of protection that guides us along our way and for your spirit of peace that passes all of our understanding.

We thank you for the people in our lives that you have sent to encourage us and for those whom you have given us responsibility over.

Lord we celebrate you in the good times and we praise you in those things that challenge us.

Lord most of all we thank you for allowing us to experience you. You are our focus and our eyes are fixed on you.

With sincere love, we give honor, glory and praise to you.

In Jesus Name,

SuGa
