Live YOUR Life

How can we be successful if we’re not sure of what we want for ourselves?


My candle line includes words of affirmations. I believe that we should remind ourselves daily of who we are and that we are worthy. With the power of social media and advertisements in our faces every second of the day it’s important to remain true to who we are. Not to say that people around us make us feel less worthy, but be honest, as humans we tend to compare ourselves to others to determine whether we are successful enough. I’m here to tell you all of that bull shit doesn’t matter. I am guilty of doing this for most of my life. I am very fond of my mother and even after her passing I still found myself doing things I know would make her proud. Not to say I don’t love who I've become, because I do, but it was only last year that I decided to sit with myself and figure out what I want for myself. Maybe not “decided”; quarantining forced me to sit my ass still and do some reflecting. I’m glad that I did because I was able to put things in my life into perspective and decide what I want to do with it. I had so many different projects going on and now they are coming together beautifully because I found a way to merge my passions by determining my values. Not the values of my mother, best friend or mentor, but what I want, what makes me happy, what I find joy in doing and being. 

It’s still the beginning of a new year and studies show that about 80% of people who create resolutions for themselves fail by January 15th. It’s easy to fail, but when you have a reason and a plan you are more likely to fall into the successful 20%. I challenge you to create a plan for yourself so that you can begin to live the life that you want.

Here’s how to do it in just 5 steps. You’re going to need a journal or sheet of paper and a writing utensil for this activity.

  1. Write down three things you value. Remember no one is reading this so don’t lie to yourself. Make sure it’s what you want for yourself and NOT what someone else wants for you.
  2. Write a few sentences that explain why your values are important to you.
  3. For each value, write down 3 times you have acted on this value. Then write a timeline how often these actions have occurred in the last week, month or year.
  4. Choose one value you want to focus on for the next 3 months. 
  5. Use my free quarterly planner to make specific times in your schedule to do what you love. 

This year be intentional about the life you want to live. Live YOUR life. 

DM me or email me to let me know which you’re going to focus on.

    歷史
    六七千年前的先民就開始釣魚。周文王曾和兒子們在靈沼釣魚取樂。戰國時范蠡也愛釣魚,常把所釣之魚供給越王勾踐食用。 二十世紀八十年代,中國大陸的各級釣魚協會成立,釣魚地點也從自然水域向養殖水域過度,所釣之魚則從粗養向細養過度。人數增多、水體污染及濫捕濫撈導致釣魚難度上升。釣魚協會開始與漁民和農民簽訂文件,使更多釣者能夠在養殖水域釣魚,達到了雙贏的目的。 二十世紀九十年代初,來自台灣的懸釣法走紅大陸,各地開始建造標準釣池。 二十世紀末,發達國家的釣者提倡回顧自然,引發新一輪野釣戰,而中國的釣者則更青睞精養魚池。1

    识鱼
    鱼类的视力不如人类,距离、宽度均无法和人类的视力比较,鱼类对水色、绿色比较敏感,鱼类的嗅觉非常灵敏,鱼类的听觉也非常灵敏,钓鲤鱼时,不能在岸上大声谈笑、走动不停,鱼类的思考能力非常弱,鱼类应对周边环境随着气象、水温、水色、潮流、流速、水量的变化而变化,于是便出现了在同一个池塘、水库、湖泊,往日钓鱼收获大,今日少,上午收获大,下午少,晴天大,雨天少等情况。2:114-117淡水钓鱼,中国大陆经常垂钓的鱼类对象是本地鲫鱼、日本鲫、非洲鲫、鲤鱼、游鱼、罗非鱼、黄刺鱼(黄鸭叫)、黄尾、鳊鱼、青鱼、草鱼、鲢鱼、鳙鱼,台湾经常垂钓的鱼类对象是本地鲫鱼、日本鲫、吴郭鱼(罗非鱼)、溪哥仔和红猫(粗首马口鱲)、斗鱼、罗汉鱼、苦花、三角姑(河鮠)、竹蒿头(密鱼)。2:117
