Peace, happiness, and joy have to be the highest possible vibrations you can have in your life. When you’re grateful with where you’re at in life, you start to manifest greatness. A lot of people want to know how to discover peace, joy + happiness, and don’t realize these things cultivate from within! If you want to cultivate these amazing things, start by cultivating these things into your life daily. We also have to be mindful that happiness + joy is a choice, and we all have choices whether we want to be happy or not! This new found joy + happiness isn’t up to anyone, but yourself.

I say this a lot, butttt…

Life isn’t always going to be sunshine + roses, and that’s just the way things are. I truly believe that how we go about certain situations determine whether or not we want to be stagnant, or continue to move forward. By any means your life is completely yours, and you’re entitled to do whatever it is you want to do, but let’s be mindful, everything we decide to do is a choice. & let’s understand that there’s nothing wrong with experiencing + having low moments from time to time, let’s just use these low moments to bring our lows to highs.

Quick self-reflection

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been doing a lot of self-reflecting, and I noticed that I was spending so much time planning for my future, and not being appreciative of where I’m at right at this very second! At this point in my life I had to take a step back, and realize how blessed I am. I just think that when we get so caught up with worrying about what might or might not happen in our future, we start to diminish the amazing things that’s transpiring in our present life. We don’t allow ourselves to fully enjoy the present and where true joy, peace, and happiness exist. So let’s focus on not getting so worked up with things not going our way, and focus on the amazing things God is trying to show us with the things we already have!

Taking the next steps

Just being able to take a little step in the direction of your dreams, will spark so much joy in your life. I know sometimes it can be hard trying to figure out what direction you want to go, but you have to have faith, and trust that God will bring you to where you need to be! I want you all to know that you’re all powerful + gifted beings, and you have to use that same power to invest in the things you want in life. You also want to be gentle with yourselves, and understand that how you treat yourself can affect you in either a positive or negative way.

Also…

Engage in things that you’re passionate about, and things that fulfills your heart desire. Alot of times we see what other people are doing, and we see that they’re passionate about those things, and we end up wanting to live their life, and do whatever it is they’re doing because we see them prospering and doing things they love, when we haven’t even found our calling yet! I’m just here to tell you that staying in your own lane + finding your calling will bring you an abundance amount of peace, happiness, and joy.

Sprinkle of motivation…

We have to understand that everyone’s path + journey is different, and that it’s okay to be inspired by people, but wanting what they have isn’t going to bring you everlasting joy! Let’s focus on not comparing our journey’s with others, because this will only cause so much toxicity in our own lives + spirit! I want you all to believe in yourself, and focus on your own journey! I want you all to know that you’re exactly where God wants you to be at, and let’s continue to focus on doing us and the things that genuinely make us happy!

Love,

Takeia

  1. So much truth in this post! The day I decided to focus on the present and attract good energy in my life daily was a turning point in what I saw for myself, where I was trying to go and the type of woman I wanted to be. You have to honor where you’re at to show God that you’re ready to be promoted to the next stage. You have to show that you’re understanding of what he’s teaching you in the moment, even if the realiation comes later. You have to figure out all the things you want and all the things your spirit grasps. Always keep an eye out for little signs God shows you because it intertwines with your purpose. I’m so happy that you took it upon yourself to dive in self-reflection. It’s so humbling but worthy! You feel like a renewed woman afterwards, I love it. Love you and love this post mamas. ❤️
