Hey Y’all Hey! Kijan ou Ye!
This year I’m bringing back my Self Care Sunday segments sharing with you all what I’m currently doing to keeping my soul happy.
If you read my last post, I shared how I’ll be leaning on faith more this year. One of the ways I’ve been doing that is beginning my day with prayer and meditation to ensure I have a peaceful day. Being at peace is my goal.
In the past, I’ve let people and things affect my entire day but I’m here to say NO MORE. I will not allow anyone/anything to steal my joy and control my emotions…that includes not allowing the MTA to mess up my entire day for making me late. If you live in NYC you understand what I mean.
One thing I have control over is how I react to situations. By starting my day with prayer and mediation will definitely bring me the peace I need.
I’ve been using the following to guide me into prayer and meditation:
I love using the Bible App to lead me into prayer. I get to start my day with a verse of the day and I also love reading a devotional…currently I’m reading the ‘New Year, New Mercies’ devotional.
After prayer, I go straight into meditating. For meditating, the Abide App has really helped me in centering myself. Meditation is a practice that has helped me to focus my mind and truly become more of a peaceful person.
It is not often that we truly take time to reflect on the things in life that makes our soul happy. I encourage you all to take that time today and everyday
