Hey Sensational Soul!
My blog has been quiet for a couple of days because my laptop is finally biting the dust after 6 years of being so loyal to me. I ordered a new one, but it takes a few weeks to get it here (I guess Dell makes them as they are ordered?). So for now, I am using my tablet and an external keyboard that I haven’t quite mastered as of yet. What do I always say? Practice makes for progression and progression brings the manifestation!
Which brings me to my question to you: when it comes to life and accomplishing your goals, do you pace yourself?
I will be quite honest: I have a tendency to work myself to the point of burnout. I definitely do NOT recommend it. Oddly enough, ever since my laptop quit working on a continuous basis and I’m being tested with my external keyboard, it has sort of forced me to prioritize myself each day and pace myself with regards to my creations in helping other souls in the world. Furthermore, I am pacing myself more now with regards to my life.
Where are some areas in life you can re-evaluate and re-adjust yourself, too?
After a lot of contemplation this weekend, I have narrowed it down to 4 top priorities that I consider to be non-negotiables in my daily activities. I’ve decided to go with 4 because I feel like it’s not too much to demand of myself, nor is it too little for each day:
1) My Mastering Your Mindset journaling is crucial because it helps to keep me sane during a crazy busy day. In addition, doing it each day not only empowers me to stay the course of my soul’s truest purpose-work (keeps away the temptation to instead focus on distractions). I am able to stay the course AND hold my end-results into the forefront of my visualizations- my manifestations! Thus, I feel driven, I feel purposeful, and I AM following my soul’s calling. This brings me so much happiness into my life.
2) Ensuring I get enough sleep is also something I am putting as a high priority because, obviously, without proper rest, I cannot function as well nor can I pour from an empty cup in my quest to help so many amazing souls on this planet! Furthermore, I have realized I am drinking more caffeine over this past month in an attempt to circumvent less sleep. In my attempt, I have gained a few pounds.
3) Surrounding myself with positive souls and energy. Each day I crave to read, listen to, and watch motivational and inspirational content to help keep myself into alignment of my soul’s purpose. This includes ensuring I spend time with my sweet chemist and other loved ones in my life. In doing so, I am bonding with other souls who are also in a positive alignment, which makes it easier to stay within the positive vortex, myself. This includes spending time with my pets!
4) Allow myself some “me” time. Now, I realize doing my Mastering Your Mindset work also fits into this category, but I consider that area to be of personal GROWTH. You know, sometimes mindset prompts I explore can be a bit uncomfortable, but I’m practicing getting comfortable with whatever I am feeling uncomfortable about; thus, it becomes easier to grow within my soul and my fears aren’t so scary anymore.
When I say “me” time, I mean relaxing. I mean surfing the web reading articles I enjoy to read about psychology, philosophy, the Universe, spiritual development, law of attraction, poetry, and anything else that strikes my fancy! I also like to watch documentaries, PBS, Big Bang Theory, Seinfeld, Will & Grace, and other shows that entertain me. I love to read historical European fiction, European history, love poetry, fiction novels by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and other works such as The Sparrow, The Time Traveler’s Wife, and the Push Not The River trilogy series (just to name a few). I love to take naps, snuggled with my dog under some blankets surrounded by fluffy pillows, and watching Netflix or some of my most favorite films such as “The Intouchables” (French version), Inglourious Basterds, The King’s Speech, High Fidelity, Lost in Translation, and Woody Allen films, just to name a few!
It’s important to pace ourselves because burnout IS real. It can be debilitating and stressful, exhausting, numbing, and it’s a sure-fire way to bring us OUT of alignment. Over the course of this years I am learning some powerfully valuable lessons with regards to pacing oneself not only in life, but in also accomplishing life goals and calling in all of our manifestations!
Normally I tend to write a novel-length blog post, but today and given my external keyboard situation, I think I will leave this message to anyone who needs these reminders in a shorter length. Hopefully it is still as powerful because my top 4 priorities for me each day ARE what help me maintain my alignment and happiness as a Divine being of this Universe. And what we emit through our thought and feelings vibrations are what we are communicating TO the Universe that we want MORE of these types of thoughts and feelings. It’s so easy for us to get distracted with the “shoulds” of life that we push our soul’s needs and our energy needs to the back burner. It’s so easy to spiral OUT of alignment and before we realize it, we are so far out that we find it hard to get back INTO that wonderful alignment again.
We always get a choice, nonetheless.
What is important for you and for your life?
What are your top 4 daily priorities for your soul?
What are you DECIDING and what are you CHOOSING for yourself in order to get into and STAY within your soul’s alignment to feel good and pace yourself each day?

Perhaps, these are some great Mastering Your Mindset journaling prompts to explore for today or tomorrow. Remember:
