Hey Divas!

Welcoming Fall frfr. It’s been warmer than usual for us here in Vegas but that snippy chill factor came in over the weekend.

This time of year l spend as a wind down and making preparations for the year ahead. The past couple of years have been short of madness. Coming out of the most horrible experience of my life has left me changed. A new person a better diva.

Emotional scars are the worst because unlike a broken bone you can’t see that you’ve healed you have to believe it and do the real work. The painful uncomfortable work of facing yourself and owning your ish. We can’t choose the cards life has dealt us but we can play TF out of our deck.

So with all this said going into a New Year in less than two months. I’m thinking about what l truly want out of this year. Creating a vision board has helped me over the years even the years l didn’t have the energy to cut and clip images l wrote it down and it still worked!

It’s a simple process but not easy. You may have screen shots or images in your phone of what your desires are IG is a great place to start as well. Magazines are old school but are great if you have them and know that google images is your new found BFF!

Creating your 2022 Vision in 3 Easy Steps

1. Set some goals using S.M.A.R.T formula. It needs to be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and a time frame deadline for the goal to be reached.

Find images that reflect these goals. You can set goals in any area of your life but for the purpose of Fly By July we focus on Health & Fitness so this is a great place to start of you’re not sure what you want right now. Nothing in life can be achieved or is sustainable without our health.

2. Find a recent photo of yourself in a Happy moment.Think of how these goals will make you feel find words and quotes that affirm your feelings.

3. Think of possessions you want to own related to goals from STEP 1. Collect all the images and paste to board, scrap book paper, digital, etc. lf you do go digital be sure to print it out to display in a place where you will see it regularly or use as screen saver.

Keep it simple. Keep it clean. Keep it Inspirational. All you need is scrap book paper scissors and glue. I prefer rubber cement and scrapbook paper so that l can put it in a book. Digital is an option as well you can pin a board in Pinterest or save image to your screen saver where it can be seen frequently.

I challenge you this week to sit down and write down your goals and collect images to make your vision board! Let’s see your 2022 dear diva!

Stop Expecting YOU from other people

November 17, 2021

Hi Divas!

It’s a harsh reality. Too many times we expect “ us “ from others. Some people will give you their entire ass to kiss regardless of your relationship with them. Regardless of your friendship. Regardless of your family ties.

Stop expecting YOU from other people

This is a physical world and people will be people out for themselves. Givers will be givers and takers will be takers until the end of times.

The hardest lesson but the greatest lesson of my life is the importance of making myself a priority and self care. Everyone and everything took priority over me. My body and my life was a reflection of that. Not a good look for a Diva!

Self Care is how we fill up our cups. Love You some You Dear Diva!!

My cup ran empty it was not replenished. As we know we can not pour from an empty cup.

I ended up feeling emotionally drained, used, and taken advantage of most the time.

The hard reality l had to face is that a part of me allowed that behavior due to my lack of boundaries.

Boundaries. What are they? Anything that doesn’t feel good is when a boundary has been crossed.

In that moment diva has 3 choices. She can address it, take it, or move on from it.

A diva doesn’t have to make anyone’s bullshit her reality. F—that. We are here to receive what overflows from our Fabulousness. Graciously.

Failing to plan? Plan to Fail

Hey Divas,

Here l am getting back on track. The art of allowing. I’m in a space of life where l don’t have to get it all right. I’ve lived enough life to know what l like and what l don’t for the most part.

I know that l don’t like feeling tired and tapped out. I don’t like feeling drained. I don’t like feeling stressed, even though it’s healthy sometimes and a part of life. I do like how l feel after eating right and clean. I do like when l am actually on time for things. It reduces my stress and l am able to be fully present.

The sacrifice to eating clean is the prepping. It takes time and l am working on ways to perfect it to balance it in my life. If I don’t plan I go straight to what’s most convenient or miss a meal. Not a good look for a diva! lt’s all a work in progress but I take things day by day.

I’ve been chronicling my journey and got off track these past couple of weeks after losing my Uncle to cancer. I would think by now l would have this grief thing down but with every death a piece of me dies too. Every death is painful no matter how much you prepare for it. You’re never prepared when it actually happens.

My Uncle was a second Dad to me. He was the version of my Dad who broke all the rules. He lived in his truth and unapologetically.

Everything is eventual. This one hurts so bad.

I’m staying on the course and not allow grief to get me off the course. I’m in a space of life that l understand death is a reality of life as it is necessary and natural but it doesn’t take away the hurt.

I’m learning to process death while still keeping my priorities in tact by having goals but more so than that making a commitment to them because without making a commitment it just adds to the list of failures.

Set realistic goals and expectations. It’s okay—and healthy—to realize you cannot be 100% successful at everything all at once. Be mindful of the things you can control and work on accepting the things that you can’t control.

Fall down 1000 times get back up 1001.
