Friday what is rockin’ my world!

Hello my lovely weekend love warriors!

morning sky

How about this beautiful sky full of thunder and lightning to wake up to?

Lots of great stuff to share with you this grand Friday…

First, My non-negotiables!

after my post last friday, I’ve had some great private comments by some of you, on to taking better care of yourself, asking for what you need, stating  your desires, and getting them done… sometimes it is enough to share your thoughts with another to make an impact on your soul, sometimes  you need to shout it really loud…what ever it takes for you to live that simple and fulfilled life, you do deserve it.

And I talked about my non-negotiables…what I need and want to live my fullest, daily…all week I have journaled about them and the virtues that I believe in for myself, thanks to Kristopher Carter’s this Epic Life manifesto…he talks about upgrading your lens, defining your non-negotiables,and having full-life integration…love it, and I have narrowed down my wordage for my non-negotiables!

Down to five … they all revolve around connection, and of course there are sub-titles and sub headings, etc…

but the big titles are

Spiritual Connection

Physical Connection

Family Connection

Love Connection

Work Connection

For spirit, I need to have quiet time, meditation time, reflective time

-for physical, I need to dance, walk, workout, and be in nature

-for family, I want to spend quality, daily time with my soul mates, my soul pets, partners, and dear ones

-for Love, I need self-love first, then I want to spread the love, and feel the love

-and for work, I must do my soul work, create and share, to empower and ignite others to do the same….


how about you? Can you share your non-negotiables? in the comments below…


ok all you beauties, now for our Friday round up!
