KEEP MOVING!

This week has been great. On Tuesday I took a virtual course that I’ve been preparing for in a while. It was totally worth it. I love the lessons I took from that. Ewuraba is able to sit without support now and she finally likes her pacifier. This week she’s taken some purée. She’s tried apple, carrots, and potatoes so far, and loves clementines and grapes too. Her excitement when we bring our meals to the dining table also makes us smile. We know she’s totally so ready for some solids.

One of my favorite people was blessed with an additional age two days ago. Ekow also received something he’s been looking forward to for the past couple of weeks. I’m truly happy for him. Attached to that happiness is a teeny bit of jealousy ?

Anyways, the week has been full of highlights for me. We’ve been blessed and we remain so grateful to God for keeping things running smoothly.

I feel light, emotionally, and fulfilled. It’s December!? and it’s time to channel our energies towards new possibilities and perspectives as we wait for the new year! I’ve come to learn and accept the importance of perspectives and mindsets and the role they play in our experience of joy and success or sadness and failure.

Now I know you may be thinking, “well, aren’t perspectives and mindsets the same things”? I believe there’s a slight difference. Perspective is how we view life and our experiences in general. It’s how we interpret situations and the world around us. On the other hand, your mindset influences your perspective.

I could use the “half-full or half-empty” glass analogy to explain further.

Our description of this glass forms our basic perception of life, are we generally optimistic (seeing the glass as half-full) or pessimistic (seeing the glass as half-empty)? This perspective is mainly influenced by the kind of mindset you lean towards. You can either have a fixed mindset or a growth mindset.

Having a fixed mindset means that you believe you are all that you’re currently made of and there’s no room for change. If you have a fixed mindset, you allow your experiences to define who you are. So if you tried something and failed, you immediately believed that you are a failure and that thought is cast in stone.

However, if you have a growth mindset, you believe there’s always an opening for improvement in your life and even in the lives of others. You do not allow your experiences to define who you are. You see failure as an opportunity for growth and learning and you seize that opportunity.

The scary part is, we attract more of the things we think about, fixate on, and hope for, into our lives. So if you have a fixed mindset you will most likely end up manifesting negative emotions and failures into your life, because guess what? You believe you’re a failure! But if you have a growth mindset you’ll keep attracting positive things not because all is rosy and fine, but because even the low moments appear as springboards for better days.

I invite you to choose to cultivate a growth mindset because as human beings our potential is limitless, and our words and thoughts are powerful. Speak good things into your life, cut yourself some slack, appreciate your progress, give yourself a thumbs up and be grateful for the little things that keep you moving, and KEEP MOVING!
