Poem – How you touched me Hello all my readers.... and how was your week? I hope all went according to plan. For me, it was all a joyous surprise..... Another blessed week filled with positive, amazing things and surprises galore. It just does wonders to someones spirit to just be happy. Today's blog is short and sweet, as I am tending to so much.... I have once again to rearrange my schedule to suite additional activities added to my week. One that I try to keep up with is my “ Reading activity”. I have been reading this combination of poems in a book. Not the kind that rhymes.... Na!!!!! the kind that speaks to my heart. It was a gift given to me by my brother to compliment my soul he said.... What does that mean ? I asked, he responded just read it , I am sure you will find just what you need in it. So, although I was hesitant, I leaped, as I do for everything in my life now. I just go full force knowing that it has to work out. Lol...... and it always does, once I listen to my intuition that is backed up with faith. I have Faith in the Universe but mostly faith in myself that I certainly deserve this amazing blessing coming from the above. Sharing quickly, just a small part of one of my favorite Poem in the book entitled “ In the strength to find my soul, I lost the eyes of scrutiny” by Carla S. Veiga. The Poem is called : “ SOULFUL” - ( Two of my favorite paragraphs) Love is voiceless it can be felt through the echoes of silence As magnetic energy flowing through space and time to make a connection And it is upon the absence of love that there manifests The desires for cupid's heart The Beauty of my soul is to silence my tongue So that you may find your voice For when your image is a reflection During times of compassion, It will create refraction in the light of self gratification Words have power. “ It is as you say “ my grandma often said. So speak good things into your life!!! It is your duty. The poem speaks of the basics of love and silence and how all of it is linked to your soul. It is the reflection of self management that is the root of your success or failure in whatever you want to accomplish. Hope this Poem sharing served its purpose. For more details on the book and additional poems if desired, email me or DM would love to add details to your curiosity. So till next time my friends, keep dreaming big and never stop reaching from the stars. Believe me I have gotten to some this past few weeks and it has left me in awe of myself. I almost forgot to tell you, I am starting a 21 days of meditation again, the cleansing of my soul begins. Keep it real, and remember love changes everything. Xoxo Gueldy
Hi everyone, Hope you are all healthy and striving and if you're not I am sure you will get there. As for me, I am great, because I am blessed to be alive, to be healthy, to be loved, to be doing what I love, and just overall to have great plans to accomplish.
I do sometimes feel overwhelmed of course by life. Who doesn't right? It's ok, believe me it is, to be overwhelmed, and to stay overwhelmed for a while, but remember.... stay like that for a very short time, always, always pick yourself up and continue. Even start over if you have to. Every morning I wake up and thank God for another chance to get it right..... That's what life is all about. So what is overwhelming in your life? And what causes it ?
“Overwhelmed” usually implies physical or emotional exhaustion, in a negative way by default, unless the person experiencing these emotions indicates otherwise.
How can this be managed ?
First you need to identify the “stress” yup that is what brings on the overpowering feeling . So first step is identifying and knowing that the stress from this or that brought you to being overwhelmed.
Secondly, find ways to manage it, be prepared, stress is unavoidable, unfortunately it happens without being announced it's kind of like a party crasher, they were not invited but they show up anyway lol....... So, find ways to manage it with meditation, yoga, exercise, or maybe just a time out sewing, watching tv, or whatever pleases you, just don't stay in the negative space.
Thirdly, calm your brain, as your brain calms down so will the rest of your body and you will ease back to the regular feeling of being yourself.
Being overwhelmed is never fun, the feelings that comes with it.... OMG.... just awful. The feeling of being :anxious, irritated, worried, exhausted, unmotivated..... Wait a minute, that's NO NO FUN.
The Key to beating overwhelm feelings is being prepared..... Yup hope for the best, prepare for the worst. I use to be overwhelmed when I had to do laundry.... Yes, this is a lesser of things that someone can feel overwhelmed about, some stuff are very important. Anyway, I am acing it now, I do 3 loads every Friday, I wash, dry and fold and put away..... DONE!!!!
So my laundry routine is : Weekly, and I do NOT, I repeat DO NOT leave anything unfolded or not put in it's place. This works for me. And I am loving the space that it has created for me. Somethings are more serious like balancing your life, being a mom and having to work a full time job, or even dealing with an illness of a love one…... Please feel free to email me or DM me about what is overwhelming you. I promise to get you the right tips to help cast that away.
As usual I have nothing but the best to wish you all. Thank you for being here weekly. Xoxo Gueldy
Welcome to our weekly blog..... Hope you all had a fantastic week. My week was very good, if I do say so myself. It was filled with Progress, and that was satisfying enough. The most important thing in Life is to keep moving regardless of the circumstances. At times it may be hard and viewed as impossible, just keep taking that step or half a step, just don't stop, keep growing.
Today, I want to focus a little on Patience, and how important this is in our every day decisions. Whether we are dealing with personal stuff or professional stuff, what can patience bring to the table?
By definition Patience is the ability to remain calm when dealing with a difficult or annoying situation, task or person.
As a mom, you can be nothing but patient with your child as he or she goes through different motions of this Life. As a friend we have to also be patient sometimes in order for the relationship to be the best that it can be. As an entrepreneur you are called to be patient with your new venture.... it can prove to be one of the keys to success. In general Patience is regarded as a very wonderful thing that can lead to great heights.
Although it is absolutely true that Patience has it benefits, in resolving lots of problems, it can also be a draw back. Patience has better results than impulsiveness, it permits us to take a step back and to reassess the situation as needed. It also helps the truth to surface and one will benefit from having now certainty on the next step.
It is essential not to confuse Patience and Passiveness as the two have some resemblance. Being Passive can result only in fall backs for oneself. Someone that is Passive will allow and accept what happens or what others do without active response or resistance.
Patience has its props where as Passiveness does not. In my opinion this world definitely need more Patient people, more understanding human beings, that are willing to help others and stand by them in their time of need.
So be Patient my dear friend and not Passive. Always reassess every situation, and give yourself a period of time that fits your need to do so. Stand up for yourself if necessary and make sure to speak your truth...... Make sure that there is Productivity while waiting. The number one clue that you have confused PATIENCE AND PASSIVENESS, is while you Wait, nothing changes.... Things still remain the same after putting everything out there, after giving it your all.
Hope this article has been helpful for you or someone you know, as usual more detailed information is available, on the subject. All you need to do is email or DM me.
I wish you all an amazing week, filled with health, love and of course Patience. Be Patient with your love ones, with strangers and most of all with yourself. We are all a work in Progress, just keep moving with a loving heart.
Hi everyone, Hope all is well..... I am absolutely amazing ….. and I had such a delightful week..... I worked, I volunteered, I relaxed, I took a down day and better yet I am over my under the weather situation …. YES, YES, and YES...... To that wonderful, honey and citrus tea, I spoke to you about two weeks ago. I had to add ginger, because that bug was just not gonna let me go like that...... So remember ginger as a natural ingredient is also good for colds ….
This week I want to talk a little about the bucket list. Honestly, this word has been going around all week.... I kept hearing it and decided to make it the topic of my blog.
What exactly is a Bucket list? By definition it's “ a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime”.
Some will think this absolutely ridiculous.... Well I think it's fun. Why not make a list of all the things we hope to achieve before our mission on this earth is over.
How is this list created? some steps, just for you: Choose an inspiring place. Developing your bucket list should be exciting, so find a place to brainstorm that inspires you! ... Choose goals that are meaningful to you. Your bucket list should contain items that are deeply meaningful to you. …
Find a common theme. ...
Cast off expectations. ...
Talk to others for inspiration.
Why are bucket list important? It is believed that balance is necessary and developing a version of a bucket list is healthy, focusing, and adds a layer of meaning and excitement to life and what the future holds. Having and working toward both short-term and long-term goals is extremely important .
With all this said, I have not yet done my bucket list, I will definitely have to create one. I love to do fun things, this is something else I have to get to . One of the things I can say will definitely go on there is a tour of Europe, I had the great pleasure to visit the UK, on my way to Kenya (Africa) one of the most wonderful trips of my life, OMG, I loved going to Kenya, it changed my life and my perspective of who I was, I also had the opportunity to conquer my fear of flying. It was a 16 hr flight all in all.
To all my readers that did not know what a bucket list was, hope you learned a little about it, I do have more extensive information that can be sent to you so email or DM me..... The Bucket List even has an App . Wow, technology is amazing. If you have not yet done it, go ahead and create it, and if you have please share with me your list, I would love to find inspiration for mine.
My title this week is " Quote me". I grow each and every day, I learn so much from this journey called life, I try to take away what i can from situations, people i meet, circumstances i have to deal with and everything else this wonderful thing called LIFE swings my way.
I do live by principles and of course Quotes..... I love going through quotes and finding the ones that speaks most to my heart.....
At every milestone we live through, we seek something else, what we use to seek as teenagers, we no longer seek as moms, or business women, or just individuals.
I seek my purpose each day, as i define it , I do know that : Love, Peace and Harmony are Extremely important to me. I also value TRUTH and HONESTY so much more ......
Here are some of my favorite quotes on : Love, Peace, Harmony, Truth and Honesty..... Email me or DM for additional quotes, I have so many that i love........
SHARING TIME ******* HERE WE GO :
LOVE Yes to me, LOVE is the most powerful force in this world. LOVE can change any situation if it is given a chance. True love is so easy, it flows like a river, effortlessly. This amazing force makes you feel safe, it makes you feel whole, it encourages you, and you feel like you can conquer the world. Love is something everyone should experience, it is a must..... and most importantly, it should never be given up on. Love is the most amazing feeling in the world and everyone deserves it. True, Unconditional Love. If you seek Love, then Love seeks you.... Stay in Faith........
PEACE So, this right here is not negotiable to me, I will not negotiate MY PEACE.... What ever does not bring PEACE to me, has got to go..... I decided i think maybe two years ago, that i need my life and people in my life to be an image of PEACE.... And i can tell you from experience there is nothing like inner peace. It is so good, it is so wonderful, that serene feeling just being relaxed and whole. I meditate to keep my peace, i pray to keep my peace and most of all I have Faith in God, He has promised me that everyone of my dreams will come true....... and I sure Believe him, so I live in Peace .......
HARMONY Everything is in Harmony when we stay true to ourselves. Unfortunately, this world is full of false pretenses, people who prefer to project an image of something that is not. I like to keep it simple, What you see is what you get.... and thank God for this amazing Harmony that surrounds my everyday activities. I have made it a point to level my mind, keep my spirit high and strong, and my body also... (exercising is a struggle, i take long walks instead)...... But all in all I value the Harmony that i feel each day.... It sometimes get rattle, but i try to bounce back rapidly , in order not to drown in the weary part of this world.
TRUST So i trust too easily, YES i said it!!! I do, I am very naive in this department, and i can admit it... Definitely working on it, and now i see clearer than i use to see before. I usually get blindsided by situation, i never see it coming, until Boom!!! But Girlfriend is getting better...... I have learned not to trust all the time, and to follow my intuition. I now know how to recognize RED FLAGS in people, family members and even my kids.... YUP those red flags are everywhere, PAY attention. And TRUST is definitely EARNED..... Cause lots of times people promise thing and NEVER EVER get them done.... Don't let it go... Don't over look it .... the only person that will pay for that will be you.....
HONESTY Some roaming this earth, does not even know that this word exist, I mean seriously.... I think they convince themselves that all the lies they tell are true.... Honesty is hard sometimes to hear, but what i have learned is really something easy..... When you know better you do better, I am sure every one has been dishonest at least a couple of times in their lives, and i guess we are all humans, but we need to grow to a place where Honesty is acceptable, we need to receive it and be able to give it as well, in the most loving way possible. Be with an honest heart and a clear spirit.
Quotes are really awesome, they are adaptable to every single circumstance that we can meet. I can only suggest that we live and learn and always believe and trust in Divine Timing...... God is sending you peace, placing you in your destiny, making sure you are prepared to go to the next level .
Wishing you a safe and loving week..... See you next Monday.....
Oh ! My goodness......this week has just gone by so fast. With all it's ups and downs, I feel so blessed and thankful to have lived through it, and I am absolutely looking forward to the amazing week ahead.
Although I have been feeling under the weather since Friday, I 'm still grateful for my busy life, it keeps me on my toes, keeps my brain cells working, above all keeps me happy and joyful.
The truth of the fact is:“I need some rest”, being burnt out is not a good thing. The #1 question on everyone's mind is :Who can rest when things are moving so fast? Well..... sometimes we just have no choice, we need to take it back a notch ..... in order to be the best of who we are.
NOTE TO SELF :You are special and needed by this world, take care of yourself, love yourself, be kind to yourself, and REST yourself, when you need it. Listen to your body, it will not lie to you.
I have explored so many natural remedies for this under the weather situation I have been living through, and I am here to share as usual. Please note, that natural remedies do not replace usual Medical Care.
What is a natural remedy? For those of you who don't know what that means :
Natural Remedies are medicinal products where the active ingredient is of natural origin and consists of an animal part, a bacterial culture, a mineral or a salt.
My absolutely favorite ones are the five (5) below, they help with our everyday discomfort that can arise from time to time, due to fatigue or viral infections:
Ginger stops Nausea
Better Sleep patterns are enhanced by Magnesium
Sore Throat with honey and lemon tea ( this is what I am using right now for my soar throat)
Peppermint Oil in your burner, or put in hot water and inhaled, will diminish headaches
To alleviate anxiety, some chamomile tea
There are absolutely many many more natural remedies, for other situations, such as arthritis, aching back, fever, warts.... I could go on forever ( DM or email for detailed list).
So, there you have it we live and we learn.... I am so excited about what I learn every day.... and I am amazed about the amount of knowledge that I have received just by being aware. Living in awareness is such a wonderful lifestyle, your life changes in all the areas that are dear to you.
Wishing you all a wonderful, healthy week, filled with positive intentions and actions. Be Blessed!!! Xoxo Gueldy
Life can be hard, and unfair at times, it can also be beautiful, happy and awesome. For the days where life is just knocking us down, and it happens to all of us, we need a Lift.
It is important to keep our lift alert up as to not be swallowed by this world. And although a person can be strong, and positive it is important to conserve ones energy and on the days where you need help, let someone else carry you..... Get a Lift.
You can be the lift for yourself or for someone else..... Every Spirit needs to be lifted from time to time. As humans we are created to help each other, to love each other, to support each other.....
Have you ever watched two little children play on the playground ? Please note these kids are complete strangers …...
OMG!!!!! what an amazing site, they are there to help each other …... If one falls, the one standing helps by picking his friend up, if one looses a toy, the other will help find it. The very small kids prove that gender, race,size just don't matter.
As we get older, society transforms us into something different than described above. And as people we become individuals with “baggage”. Doubting ourselves, believing in society's rules and regulations. Our happiness is then touched and sadness will take over.....
This world definitely need more LIFTERS. ....... Don't get me wrong, I know we all have our own problems, and sometimes it is hard to handle and overwhelming. But we can do our part. Regardless of our situation, we can start a karmic pattern that will be beneficial to us and to others around us . As you give, you shall receive...... Give a Lift and receive a Lift and more.
Sharing four quick tips on lifting someones spirit: ( More detailed tips available, email or DM)
1 – Be all ears : Listen, no judgment..... Let your friend speak freely for as long as they want to . And if they don't want to talk.... then just be there.
2-Schedule something fun.... Like a walk on a wonderful sunny day, lunch at a nice place, yoga session, a massage …. anything to enhance a wonderful feeling.
3- Music Therapy... Make sure your friend listens to her or his favorite tunes, this definitely helps... Music heals the soul.
4- Be social : Yes, being a social butterfly will absolutely help your spirit.... Get out and play cards with a group of friends, get on a forum and talk about your favorite hobby …..
The most important part about life is living it..... to the fullest ….. and for those sad days... get up and dust yourself off.... It is easier said than done, but it is not impossible.... Be someones Lift buddy and I guaranty you will have a Lift buddy when you need one. The Universe takes care of us all, as long as we are in the righteous way.
Thought Organization Hey Hey Hey !!!!! How was your week??? Lost of positive things happening I hope. My week was awesome, I met with lots of new people to further my projects, networking was so good. I am blessed with having so many ideas in my wonderful mind. One day at time.... Step by Step I'm getting there and I'm so Excited..... Can't wait to share...... It's great to have lots of ideas, projects to bring to life, etc...... It is also very important to organize your thoughts. I have learned to organize my thoughts as I organize a magnificent event... It's the same principal, what you focus on comes to pass. It's that simple if planned for it. Planning is EVERYTHING. I know it seems non realistic to plan thoughts, but it is very very important in order to be efficient. To maximize productivity you must organize your thoughts. There about 70,000 thoughts going through a human mind, do you imagine how chaotic it can be up there? Thoughts are a mixture of so much : “positive, negative,active, passive” .... Your thoughts are not facts, so organizing them are crucial, because they are linked to emotions and that is where you can turn everything around. Recent studies have shown that allowing your mind to be disorganized does not only make you feel bad ( EMOTION) but is also very bad for you. A disorganized mind leads to stress, chronic negativity, and implusivity. It stops you from being positive, contributes to health problems, including weight gain, heart disease, migraines, headaches. A few tips on how to organize your Thoughts: ( More detailed INFO available DM or email)
Challenge yourself.... Find the right amount of challenge that suits you, as you are.
Control your Emotions, don't let them control you ( Everything will pass, breath)
Sustain your focus ( Stay Focus on the positive, like that is the only thing that exist)
Take Breaks ( Relax, between all the thinking, I love to play Design Games, OMG so relaxing)
Shift Back ( After your break come right back to focusing on the matter)
And then you just bring all these steps together. It's not very difficult to organize your thoughts.
Remember Everything worth having is worth fighting for ….. So this will require attention and monitoring ….. ( AWARENESS), be in the NOW.
It's important to live everyday to the fullest and understand that what is real is THIS MOMENT.....
Wishing you a week filled with Precise Thought organization. Your business and personal life will thank you.
Most of us are overwhelmed with expenses, we spend more than we really have. We are human what can I say, we want it , we get it..... We figure, we will be able to pay it by the time the bill comes...
Nothing is further than the truth. And to my dear clients.... I know no matter how low the budget is, it still means expenses. So how do you prepare yourself for the upcoming expenses?
I am no expert, but I am willing to share what I have learned so far. No matter what event you are planning it requires money, whether you do it yourself or hire a planner.
Everyone wants their Event to be memorable, that's why the idea of it exist....and it will be way easier if after your wonderful planned event, you have not stretched your finances too much.
Disciplined spending is what we all should be doing. It's amazing how I will pull off a PERFECT EVENT with all expenses allocated and spent in exact slot, without negotiation. The logical analysis would indicate if I can do it for someone else, I should be able to do it for myself with no problem.
I have found that I can do better in the Personal expense department, and I have taken steps to do just that. I will suggest to everyone that is looking to plan a Wedding, Baby Shower, Birthday Party or anything else to prepare adequately. It makes a world of difference.
Some basic points that I have decided to follow CONSISTENTLY are as follows:
Know your income. … ( Mine fluctuates) so I have been tracking it
Give yourself a weekly allowance. … ( This I had tried and failed, but have restarted)
Keep receipts and review them weekly. ..( I do this now, and I also shop with coupons).
Balance your checkbook. … I have always done that , and I hate it...Wish numbers were higher
Plan meals and shop ahead. … Yup this is a good one, We eat out only 1 a week and I cook a lot at home now
Give yourself permission for the occasional treat. ( I do that, and it cost $2.50) – it's an amazing cookies and creams pie................ So good.
I have discovered the best websites, with the best advice on discipline spending …. Email me for the links.
Wishing you a wonderful week, with lots of disciplined expenses decisions....LOL.....
Decide that this will be your year to THRIVE and just do that..............
I love workshops Hi everyone, I hope you all had a fantastic week. … I am grateful for being alive and well, healthy and joyful and of course so delighted to be here today with YOU.
So the title says I love workshops. Good for me right!!! Well, just a few lines to tell you, why I love workshops and how you can too benefit from them, if you have never tried them. And if you have, please share your candid opinions on them by commenting or DM me.
Anyone can do a workshop, all that is needed is an interest and the right mind set.
By definition a workshop is : A meeting at which a group of people engage in intensive discussion and activity on a particular subject or project. For me, workshops are so much more. It's a chance to learn from others experiences and leave with new ideas, new visions for a project. It can be as quick as 1-2-3 or as long as weeks. So if you are ever considering a workshop also consider how much time you want to spend doing it.
I love the quick 1-2-3 workshops, those are my favorite ones. The two days to a week kind of workshop for me those are the ones I get more knowledge from. They are intense and I find that I get to apply what I have learned faster. I also take the ones for 4 weeks or more depending on the subject and field.
These days, I do lots of quick work shops on interior design, skin care line design, and imprints, the art of photography, of writing …. but my most important one yet is the Mind , Body and Spirit, which as you probably guessed is one that last at least 4 weeks.
It is alright, to do more than one workshop at a time, I do at least two. I would love to do more but that's what my busy lifestyle allows, so I'll take it and learn as much as I can. Between trying to run a business, kids pickups, cooking , homework and finding quiet time for myself..... FULL TIME JOB is really an understatement.
The fundamental reasons why I love workshops it's cause I can do it physically or online depending on my mood. Don't get me wrong I love the socializing, meeting people with the same business interest and exchanging numbers and all of that in person, but I also like to learn alone, and interact by typing and still exchanging as if I were there myself.
I do one business and one mind and body workshop at a time, and it's wonderful, it has helped with my creativity, my business mind set but most of all it uplifts my spirit. I then feel strong and ready for the hassle of this world.
It's a Beautiful Amazing World out there filled with good things, but also bad things, we need to strengthen our business skills to thrive, but we need our Minds to be 1 million times stronger in order to see the finish line, when we feel we may not be able to run the race.
Wishing you all a fabulous week filled with positive ideas. Don't hesitate to try a workshop in an area of interest, it can change your life, I promise.....
