The Law of Attraction

the trouble is in the mind, for the body is only the house for the mind to dwell in, and we put a value on it according to its worth

It’s Thursday and you know what that means? It’s time for some Thursday thoughts!

Today, I want to talk about this whole phenomenon called the Law of Attraction. I have been thinking about it for a couple of days now, since my cousin brought up the idea to me. Apparently it helped her achieved her goals and she wanted to share it with me in hopes that it will help me out in the future.

To anyone who has never heard about the law of attraction, it is the idea that whatever we put out to the universe, positive or negative, is reciprocated back unto us. It is the idea that the universe is listening to our every thought and every word that we speak.

Every time we think “Oh, I can’t possible get this job. I’m not good enough,” the universe hears us and returns it back to us.

It also works the other way. That is the beauty of it. When we start to think of ourselves in a positive light and start putting out positive energy into the universe, we feel our life starting to shift for the better.

I, myself, can vouch for this. For quite some time, I felt the most negative. I always blamed the people around me for their negative energy and almost taught myself that it was their fault that I was always so negative. However, that is not the case. We are responsible for our every thought, action, and energy we put into the universe.

When I started blaming others and taking responsibility for my actions, as well as believing in myself and focusing on all of my goals, I stopped letting myself down. I started thinking, “Your are kind, generous, and you deserve to be happy.” The more I thought about myself in a positive way, the more I noticed my mood began to change for the better. That is because the universe responds to whatever it hears. When it hears our positive thoughts and feels our beaming light of energy, it gives us opportunities and helps us achieves our goal. You want that job? Start believing that you are qualified. Start telling yourself that you will get it. And you know what will happen? You will be one step closer to getting it.

If we keep thinking positive thoughts, we welcome positive things to happen to us. It is simple. The law of attraction is the idea that by focusing on negative or positive things, a person will bring negative or positive experiences to their life.

 

 

GIVEAWAY! Compression Socks

When people think about compression socks, they normally think of long distance runners or older clientele with varicose veins. I’m neither of those things, although I did consider myself a long distance runner when I was training for a half marathon race that I never ended up doing so now you really know how committed I am. With that being said, I give mad props to all the committed long distance runners out there, I applaud you!

Anyways, back to my main topic, what really is the point of compression socks? I’ve been raving to my friends about it, wanting them to join on the compress for wellness train, and I’m here to do the same to you.

Graduated compression socks gently squeeze the legs to help move blood upwards, preventing the legs to swell. This works well for anyone who sits or stands for long periods of time.

Being a customer care specialist, I spend most of my days sitting down in the same cramped position. Wearing compression socks helps my legs feel energized by providing healthy increase in circulation. It also helps with muscle recovery, pregnancy swelling, and so much more!

I’ve always said that everyone just needs to try it to understand what I mean so I am doing a little giveaway! I am giving away a pair of Dr. Segal’s Compression Socks (15-20mmHg) of your choice. Being that it is my birthday tomorrow, I am feeling extra generous and want to give back to those who keep up with my blog as thank you.

To enter, all you need to do is comment where in the world you would like to travel and the pair of compression socks you want to win! You can find all styles at https://www.drsegals.com/collections/15-20-mmhg.

This giveaway will only be open for 2 weeks. I will announce the winner on Thursday, June 23rd!

Travel Thursday

Greetings! I hope everyone is having a fantastic day. It’s Thursday afternoon and I want to talk about travel.

I stayed up until 3am again last night. It seems that I get a lot done during the wee hours of the day.

Anyways, I was brainstorming of all of the places I want to go to in the future. Of course travelling anywhere is nice, but don’t we all have our top places that we want to travel to?

A friend of mine asked me a couple of days ago where I would want to live if I didn’t live in the beautiful and very expensive city of Vancouver. If we are being technical here, I don`t exactly live in Vancouver but I like close enough to know that living cost is through the roof.

Since then, I have realized that there are so many different places that I want to see and possibly fall in love with enough for me to want to move out there.

One of my goal with my life is to travel often and see the world. I want to fall in love with other cities as much as I have fallen in love with Vancouver the first time I moved here from the Philippines.

With that being said, here are the places I want to set foot in before I kick the bucket.

  1. Brazil
  2. Portugal
  3. Indonesia (Bali)
  4. Thailand (Southeast Asia, really)
  5. Germany
  6. England
  7. Spain
  8. Panama
  9. New Zealand
  10. Denmark
  11. Iceland
  12. Czech Republic

If you have been to these countries, let me know where to go or tell me where would you want to go!

 

Also, let me know what your travel essentials are!

Back on the Grind

I am probably the most inconsistent person that I know, and no I am not proud of it. Health and wellness is definitely a big part of my life. It keeps me sane on days when I feel like a complete mess of a human being. If you have been with me since I started this blog, you already know that I have been through some big changes in my life.

I obviously wasn’t coping very well during this past month or so. As much as I want to say that I was taking care of myself, I really wasn’t. I stopped going to yoga, I started eating meat again, and I drank every weekend (both Fridays and Saturdays). I’m glad to say that I’ve definitely regained some of my normal routine back. Two weeks ago, I signed up for some hip hop classes downtown. I’ve started going to the gym, attending my yoga classes, and consuming as little animal products as possible. It feels good to be back on the grind and finally feel like myself again.

Today I worked out on an empty studio and at first I didn’t know what to do with myself with all of the freedom I had. It was nice having the space all to myself, but it was even nicer when another girl joined me and we bonded over Kayla Itsines’ BBG workout guide. As much as it was nice to be secluded from everyone at the gym, making a new friend or just having a nice conversation with a stranger really did brighten my day. It just reminds me that with life sometimes we are so focus on ourselves and completing the task at hand that we forget to look around and noticed that we are all on this beautiful journey together.

Life’s a grind, but it doesn’t mean you have to do it all alone.

Leave It To The Breeze

These past couple of days has been really great. I’ve woken up to the sun shining through my window and I have really enjoyed having that to be the first thing I experience when I wake up. Last week, I dreaded waking up in fear of finding myself broken again. However, that hasn’t been the case as of late and I am so very glad.

This might be weird to say but I honestly believe that being broken is the biggest positive experience I have had in my life.

I’ve learned so much about my body, the people around me, I got put into a position where I could rebuild and repair relationships that has wavered for so long. There is no need for me to hold onto something that serves me nothing but pain. Sometimes it’s hard for us to see when we should walk away from something that once made us very happy. However, when we notice that it is changing us to something we are not and don’t want to be, that is when we need to step back and just let go. At first I was lost when it came to myself but now I can finally say that I’m okay. I find myself smiling more and other people in my life notices it too.

It also helps that one of my best friend has stayed with me through this hard time. She has honestly been by my side this entire time and I am forever thankful. It’s nice to have someone who will sit next to you and not say something when you’re at the weakest point of your life. Everyone needs a person who will be sit by their side and help them get back up again.

 

 

 

A Person of Substance

and why you should strive to be one

Since my ex-boyfriend and I broke up, I have found myself to be more open minded than before. I smile more, have conversations with strangers, and make a conscious effort to be more approachable. What I have learned so far about myself is that I really do not like to be surrounded by people who lack substance.

The more I talk to people the more I realize how a lot of us are guilty of showing off, judging one another, complaining about things that are so very irrelevant. Whether you want to admit it or not, you too get annoyed when the wifi is slow and you’re trying to post a picture on instragram of how much fun you’re having at the moment instead of actually putting your phone away and interacting with people.

I will be the first to say that of course I get excited when I see people liking what I post on any social media platform. It’s a confidence booster. However, when I really want to connect with someone, I don’t want to hear about how they spend countless hours binge watching a show on Netflix.

When I really want to connect with someone, I want to hear about their goals, where they want to travel, where they see themselves a year from now. These are the things that I find attractive in anyone I want to become a part of my life, whether it is as a friend or a partner. For the most part, when I say you should strive to be a person of substance, what I really mean is that you should find something that you are passionate about and work towards it.

Do me a favor and listen to this wine bottle will you? Go ahead and attempt where you have not gone before, do the things you have not done. Step out of your comfort zone, and find yourself. See what life has to offer and take every opportunity that comes your way.

 

Be Free

the lesson I learned at the nudist beach

What’s more freeing than being naked? Absolutely nothing.

I have always wanted to go to Wreck Beach, a clothing-optional beach which stretches approximately 6 kilometers just west of Vancouver.

Since the weather these past couple of days has been really nice, my friend and I decided to commute the hour and a half to UBC and flaunt what we have while we still got it.

I have to say that at first I was skeptical to take my clothes off. However, after multiple anxiety attacks, I realized that it really wasn’t that big of a deal. Sure there were tons of people around, but they also had their own business to mind. The fact of the matter is that other people really don’t care what you do, and if they did it really didn’t matter as well.

What I’ve learned in taking my clothes off in public is that most of the times I am so worried about how others may perceived myself that I forget to live in the moment. I learned to finally be free and not care what other people thought of me.

My advice to you: be free and get naked, whether it is physically or mentally. If you don’t allow yourself to be vulnerable, you may miss out on life’s greatest moments.
