It's been quiet over here at Buzzing With Bee and Me due to Bee and I buzzing around living life. This year was the first year I made a vision board. It was the first year I actually took all my hopes and dreams for the year and put them on something concrete. I spent days cutting out pictures and words from magazines and when I couldn't find what I was looking for, I wrote it in myself. This year I made the decision to invest, it's my chosen word for the year. It's the word at the top of my vision board.
This year I am investing in myself, my relationships, my career, my passions, my hobbies and whatever else I feel aligns with where I want to go.
I've invested in myself by continuing my groups at the local women's resource centre, they have been tremendously empowering and healing for me. I've learned so much about who I am as a woman, different energies, gems and crystals, alternative forms of healing modalities, meditation, yoga, healthy and vegan eating, nourishing your mind, body and soul, healthy relationships (with self and others) the list of learning goes on and on and the best part is, I'm still learning more. I've invested in myself by continuing EMDR and really pushing subjects I have hid for far too long. I've been challenged to change my way of thinking about certain things and put them into a bright light or a more precise focus. I've invested in writing a list about what I look for in a partner, I've invested my mind into being more open to organic relationships. I've invested myself in taking a women's sex workshop. I am embracing my womanhood to the fullest extent that I am capable of.
In other areas of my life, I've invested in a new career. I found the most perfect job and work with a wonderful, strong, female boss (who also happens to be the CEO and owner of the company). My position is one that can grow. I can continue to learn and offer new abilities to my team well having an amazing work/life balance, which was of critical importance to me. I look forward to expanding my knowledge and continuing my passion to help others in any way shape or form that I can. I've learned new programs for graphic design, which excites the creative side of me. I see challenges and am ready to face them. I'm going places and I'm so happy to be where I'm at. For the first time in my life, I don't feel anxious about work. I just found out today that kids are off school for three weeks and I'm not panicking. I know I will sort it out and I have the flexibility to make both work and life balance well.
I'm still working on investing more into my passions and hobbies but I'd like to reach out and make some friends or meet some people who share those passions and hobbies with me because honestly, I'm a small female, some places I do not feel comfortable going by myself. It's a sad reality of the world we live in but one we all have to be mindful of. There are other areas of my life, reading for example, that I have invested in more. Never before have I had more than one book on the go at a time but right now, all my 4 Book Beaus are filled with "currently reading" books. I am going through books quickly and simply love it so much.
I've invested into Bee. She has decided she wants to sell bracelets so I'm investing in her company (Unicorn & Cat Co. more info to come) and helping her learn different aspects of running a business. It's nice to have something to fill the time with her missing school so much. She gets to practice math and computer skills, reading and writing and being creative. She is so focused and determined and I love watching her work. We've both found that sitting and making bracelets is very meditative. We often have soft music playing in the background and our souls are just at peace, really helps with anxiety.
I've invested in healthy eating. I gave up eating pork and beef this year in an attempt to be kinder to animals and the environment. I never ate much before but it's about consciously making those decisions now and sometimes passing up bacon is hard! But I know it's important to me and for the right reasons, so it'll just be an adjustment like everything else. I've incorporated a lot more plant based foods into our diets and love how good they make my soul feel. They are just so nourishing. I have a bit of a ways to go health wise, but I'm already seeing an improvement.
I've invested in new ways to approach situations. Some situations in life need to be viewed as business transactions. It helps take the anxiety load off quite a bit! I've learned to breath first and foremost and then process. I've learned for me that physically writing things down helps so much, keeping clear records, having everything filed away, it just makes life so much more easy going. I'm more laid back and easy going, go with the flow, take what is given to me but also ask for what I want and believe in it's manifestation. When situations in the past would have sent me down the anxiety rabbit hole, they now only see into it, they don't fall down it. Not to say that it doesn't happen anymore, I am still learning, but with all the changes I have made, the ways I think, the things I eat, the people I surround myself with, the things I do for myself, it has all created such a big impact and I love where I am in life right now. I do still feel like I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop, but I'm working on also being present in the moment and enjoying it for what it is. I know life will always have ups and downs. This whole pandemic event going on right now is impacting us world wide and changing life as we know it. We are talking catastrophic impacts on our society world wide, maybe it's mother natures way of telling us we all need to stop and re-set, not just one person but the entire world. We need to take a step back and re-invest in who we are, I did it the past few months and can't recommend it highly enough! Take a breath and go with the flow, also remember to wash your hands because apparently a lot of you have forgotten prior to the last few weeks events.
As for Bee and I and this blog, I'll try to write more of what I learn because it truly has been an invaluable learning experience and has changed my entire life for the better. This decade is my decade and I'm going places. I'm recruiting new people to be by my side, I'm reinvesting in my tribe (both men and women are welcome) I'm just done with being stuck where I was for so long. I know I deserve nothing but magical, wonderful, amazing things to manifest in my life and I promise to be open to most of them and work on the others. So off we go buzzing back to life. Pleas don't ever hesitate to reach out if you have a question or need some encouragement or motivation. The contact page is up there for you, I'm always here to help and listen.
