Order, Order, Order!!!

Good Morning Everyone!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was filled with reflection, analyzing and planning. Since I have the moniker,  The Life Architect, I should practice what I preach right? My main message is Design Your Life…Build Your Future. This is what I help people to do, all day every day. But I have a confession…I haven’t been following my own advice and message (yikes!). I have allowed life’s turns and twists sway me back and forth in different directions. It’s even evident in my blog posts! August and September has been a little hay wire, but I recognized it and now I am taking action and living a Designed Life. Now don’t get worried I will not be boring or unlike myself, I will simply have more structure. And structure is good!

For those of you who do not know, I am an entrepreneur, mother, life coach, social media strategist, etc. It seems like a lot but it only becomes overwhelming when I don’t have a system. I want to continue to provide all of you with quality content, so to do that my blog will be as follow:

  • Mondays-Marketing/Business/Entrepreneurship
  • Tuesdays-Relationships
  • Wednesdays-Spirituality
  • Thursdays-Health and Wellness
  • Fridays-Personal Development
  • Saturdays-Social Media
  • Sundays-The Art of Blogging

I look forward to sharing my experience, expertise, and thoughts in all of these areas! I will be setting up an email list so that we can stay connected. I will be launching my website soon and I want you all to be apart of it!!

Design Your Life…Build Your Future!

The Art of Being Aware

a·ware  

Having knowledge or cognizance, watchful.

A while back I was watching an interview with Deepak Chopra and he stated, “The only way to solve a problem is to expand your awareness.”

It took me quite some time to deconstruct and digest the meaning of his quote. But when I finally did, I had the biggest ‘A-Ha” moment ever. I realized that I had been living my live in a state of unawareness. I did what I wanted, when I wanted and I had no consciousness of the consequences. I did not care about how my thoughts, words, and/or actions affected people. I was completely absorbed within myself. That would explain why I lived a life void of happiness, success, fulfillment, and purpose.

When You Know Better, You Do Better

I am now in a complete sense of awareness. I view myself as the observer of my thoughts, words, and actions and it is kind of awesome!! I am now conscious of the fact that my thoughts, words, and actions have the power to generate either positive or negative energy.  I am now focused on putting out positive energy and by default positive energy will be reflected back to me.

The Definition of You

de·fine-

to explain or identify the nature or essential qualities of; describe.

“Who are you?”  When asked this question, most people respond by stating what it is that they do or what type of role or position that they have. i.e: father, daughter, teacher, etc. I was recently challenged to answer this question void a particular role, status, and or position. Needless to say, it was very difficult to do because in life we tend to assign who we are with what we do. It is when we are stripped of our titles, roles, and positions that we discover who we truly are.

Here are some questions that will allow you to dig deep into your true self:

What are your strengths and weaknesses?

What are your beliefs and values?

Are your actions in line with your beliefs?

If the answer is no, you are not being your true self.

Once we clearly define who we are, we must align it with our beliefs. This is what builds character. Once our character is established we must use our actions to communicate our character to others. This is not an easy task at all…trust me! But once we have mastered our character the journey into discovering our purpose begins. I would love to hear from some readers what their definition of self is. Please post in the comments section below.
