I went to bed feeling a lot. Emotionally frustrated that I am still struggling for a routine centered around giving back to others. My intention this week is to find a few places to check out to volunteer with. πŸ„

Read about Daffney the Duck below and how sticking to who she was finally paid off. .
.
.
.
.
.
There was a duck. Duck Daffney. Daffney was such a hard worker. She always showed up to work on time. She was always attentive, taking notes and helping out when she could.
.
But her coworkers didn't like Daffney. Daffney was different. Different because she was good at her job. Different because she called people out when they were slacking. Different because she fought "the man." Different because she just was.
.
Her employer didn't appreciate her. They wanted to push her down. Wanted her to stop speaking out. Wanted to fit her into a smaller box. But Daffney wasn't meant to fit in a box.
.
Her employer fired her because they couldn't control her. Daffney was sad because she wasn't appreciated. But she was also relieved because she was so tired of trying to fit into a box that was too small for her.
.
Time went on. And Daffney found a new job. A job that didn't try and squeeze her into a box. A job that gave her all the room for her to just Be. A job that recognized all her strengths and rewarded her with a promotion.
.
The fight of sticking true to herself paid off.
.
And Daffney was happy.

"Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony." β€”Gandhi

"You can easily tell when something is coming from the ego because when you get it, it doesn't satisfy you." @eckharttolle

Simple acts of service can make someone feel so loved, recognized and appreciated!
😊
Bringing someone coffee, getting them a treat, mowing the lawn, etc. go a long way.

Today’s a great day to love someone a little extra!

Monday vibes. β˜”οΈ 🌸 .
Having to remind myself of this phrase over and over because it’s so darn true. Honor the journey, no matter how wet it’ll get!

Flower power. 🌸🌼🌺🌻

Meet Dandy. Dandy the dandelion.
.
Dandy was shorter than everything around him. He never got the chance to be in the sunlight, for all the blades of grass towered over him.
.
He felt lonely. Poor Dandy. He was the only flower he knew. His loneliness would fester, and his thoughts would lead him down a rabbit hole of sad thoughts. "My life is lonely living in the cold, dark shade." And when he thought like this, his petals would droop.
.
The following day, he felt the same sad thoughts creep back in. His petals started to droop, but then he said to himself, "No. I don't want my petals to droop. I want to stand strong. I am grateful to be a flower, to be alive, and to be surrounded by vibrant, green grass. Yes, I would love to feel the sun, but I'm happy wherever I am because I'm alive, and I have much to be grateful for." His petals began to raise.
.
The next day he woke up to something he hadn't felt before. "I'm not feeling very cold! In fact ... I think I'm actually the opposite of that ... could this be warmth?!" He exclaimed in bewilderment.
.
The top of his head was indeed in the sunlight! He started thinking how he wished his whole body was in the sun. His petals started to droop. "Ok, no, no. Although I'd love my whole body to be in the sunlight, I'm grateful I finally get to feel the sunlight!" His petals rose.
.
Everyday the following week he woke up a bit taller. Until one day he had gotten so tall his whole body was in the sun. He was beyond himself with happiness and gratitude. He was fully immersed in Mother Nature's light!
.
Then he looked around, for he was tall enough to see. And he saw that he hadn't been alone at all. He had been surrounded by a field of flowers. He had just been too short living in the dark to see them before.
.
He smiled up at the sun. He was overcome with gratitude. Grateful to be living a life in such light, warmth and surrounded by new friends.
.
Dandy continued to grow and grow shining bright in the light.

Mistakes have the power to turn you into something better than you were before. πŸ’–

Follow your curiosity. πŸ‘€ Why wouldn't you? Your life, your sparkles, your light, your happiness. 🌝

We’re doers, we’re movers, we’re shakers! But sometimes we need a reminder that it’s okay to relax and Netflix and Chill. 🍿 πŸ“Ί
.
As you start this Monday planning out your week, make sure to set aside downtime for yourself.

This weekend, take a break and get out of your head and rest with Mother Nature 🌼
