Motivation Challenges Navigation Update

With the first quarter completed for 2021, it is always a time for me to reflect on the accomplishments of the quarter and to see what improvements need to be made for the next quarter. In doing so, I realized that I was needing to make my thirty-day motivational challenges easier to navigate to.

New Directions

It is with deep reflection, that I have made the decision to close the majority of my social media accounts at the end of this year. I will instead be focused on posting my writing here. I will keep just one account on the platforms that I have multiple accounts in. The testing has been done and I have a good feel for each platforms abilities and limitations.

The Strategy of Writing

The strategy of my writing is that I wear different hats. There are times when I am a manager and giving my "employee side of me" deadlines to meet. There are times when I am the CEO and holding my manager side of me accountable. I wear many employee hats. I am a UX Designer, Marketing Rep, Social Media Rep, Visual Designer, Scrum Master, Product Owner, Sales Manager and copy editor. And then of course... there are the stock holders side of me, that holds us all accountable.

The Art of Defining Me Workbook

It is a workbook that shares with you the process that I took to take myself to a blank canvas state and deprogram myself from the cult blueprint. The process of becoming the master architect to rebuild myself. To be the master artist and to create the woman I desired to be. Stroke by stroke of the brush on the canvas. It will be this format that I will use for The Ember Within series. These are my thirty day motivational posts.

Stepping into the Unknown

As I begin to put together my thoughts, that I will share in book 4, The Realm of Love, I've reflected on this new realm that I will be stepping into. A realm of unknown. Stepping into the unknown, has been my life journey over the last ten years after I left the cult, and stepped into a world that was foreign to me. Every step forward was a step into the unknown. It has been a very challenging but wonderful journey. I often reflect back on those ten years, especially now that I am in editor prep for book 2, Into the Mirror. It goes to the editor this weekend. Book 1, Falling Silence has come back from the editor and now I am in the process of making corrections.

A World at my Fingertips

We are all seeking the same thing. To live a happy life and have sufficient resources to take care of ourselves and those that are dear to us. Our similarities outweigh our differences. It's amazing when you focus on people instead of the news, just how small our world becomes. This big wonderful world is at my fingertips. With ear buds in, listening to music from creators around the world... life is good!

When it all Becomes Real

Call it sheer determination, drive or whatever label resonates within you. All I know is that hell has been my training ground. With Blue Flame Wings extended, I rise. I rise knowing that it isn't if... it's when. Knowing that I am aligned with what I desire and I will connect with the desires of my heart.

New Horizons

I've come to learn how to embrace the journey of life. Life only gives us the guarantee of experiences. It is through the lessons of failure that we learn better how to succeed. I've always been on who tried to control the events in my life, until life laughed and taught me that my own control was in how I interacted with the events it laid before me.

Rest in Peace - A New Perspective on Letting Bad Habits Die

This time of year is also the time, when we can reflect on the year. Think of what we have taken the time and energy to nurture, to grow and to breath life into. While there may be many wonderful things that we can look fondly at, there isn't a one of us that doesn't look back and reflect on things we would like to have done differently.To my habits that have hindered me in the past, I kneel, bow my head and whisper "Rest in peace and may Father Universe and Mother Nature always guide your direction and path."
