Power Up

So you may feel power down, but I’m here to remind you to seek the tools and resources to power you up.


So it’s 2021 and chileeeeee I would say I’m hitting the park running but my spirit still feels that I’m at first base. It’s funny because I been having some wins lately but it has been a struggle with my energy. For the past week I have been fighting with my body to just get up and get to it, but I find it not as easy as I want it to be. Typically I would get up around 7:30 am but I been getting up around 9:30-10 ish am. It's like my mind is telling me yes and my body is telling me no— don’t judge me. I constantly have to remind myself of my needs and to get it by any means necessary. No sunlight cool, let me turn on my diffuser. Energy feels low cool, let me drink my kombucha and workout. Bones feel weak cool, let me do some yoga. Mind feels scatter cool, let me journal out my thoughts and put on some Afro beats music. Heart wants some attention that isn’t good for me cool, let me put on a podcast that remind me how far I came. White people being thugs and terrist at the capital cool, let me continue to push change for justice. Soul wants to take a trip for a getaway, but my funds are tight, cool let me call my homegirl to do something that will satisfy us like going out to eat lol. I can go on and on but this shift in my mindset allows me to control what I can and let go of what I can not. It reminds me that I have the power to do and be me at all levels. I don’t just have to feel good to do me, I can feel like shit and still do me. That’s the power of self awareness. That’s the power of being faithful to God. That’s the power of knowing that I’m capable. So you may feel power down, but I’m here to remind you to seek the tools and resources to power you up. The ‘up’ will come from getting what you need, knowing what you need and believing you are capable of that need. Get you a Self Care Lifestyle Box to reflect on how to cater to you today. I promise you, awareness is the key to knowing who you are. Take that leap to find your value. It’s worth the investment because you are the investment in itself. Power up.
