Weekend Revelations

7/11/2024
In this episode, we explore the importance of self-love and overcoming self-criticism. I'll share a powerful piece of advice that has helped me navigate through moments of self-doubt: "Every time I feel the self-criticism creeping in, I just remind myself that there will be nothing more heartbreaking than looking back in 30 years and realizing that I spent my entire life hating myself when I could have been loving myself instead." Join me as I talk about the 4th of July, Sunday Funday with Sebastian, and a few other events that influenced this episode, which revolves around living in the moment and much more.

The Pink Motel

The New Normal

Escape Mode

5/9/2024
Lately, I've been focused on finding genuine sources of happiness and positivity, like engaging in off-roading and working with my friends during weekends. Despite facing challenges with my vehicles, I've stayed clear of certain scenes that no longer resonate. I prioritize spending time with like-minded individuals who add value to my life, recognizing that my time and well-being are non-refundable assets. My advice is to understand that our daily choices shape our lives, and it's essential to surround ourselves with positivity and values that align with our own. Stay Golden Y'all!

Life Doin Its Thing

4/25/2024
On this week's episode of RTM, we get into it! Life presents itself in unpredictable ways, often resembling waves with their fleeting highs and lingering lows. I've realized that my mindset shapes these outcomes; dwelling on negativity closes my eyes to life's positives. We're taught about perspectives, the glass half full or empty, yet we forget our blessings amid chaos. Even in heartache, growth emerges, showing how we thrive without those who leave. I choose not to dwell in the gloom, aiming to start each day with gratitude instead of fixation on shortcomings. Acknowledging moments of emotional entanglement is crucial, like my current state. Steering clear of cyclic negativity, I repurpose thoughts to focus on abundance rather than loss. A recent chat with Albert highlighted the toxicity of social media, prompting a call to list and appreciate five specific blessings, urging a shift towards gratitude's lasting impact.
