The Gracefulness and Power of Saying “No”

I will be honest, for the most part of my life I didn’t know how to say “no”. From very early age I learned that saying “no” was impolite, not collaborative and it was just one of those words that you just don’t say. “No” meant rejection and pain.. Nobody taught me how to react to “no” and so I lived for the most of my life floating in the realms of things and feeling confused and frustrated;  I felt that something was out of balance and some part of me was disabled and hurting for not knowing how to say and accept “no”…

It was only when I moved to California when I learned that saying “no” is sometimes taking care of myself, other times it helps to keep boundaries clear and most importantly, it grounds me in the moment and keeps things simple. I learned that saying “no” is as simple as saying “yes.” It is graceful, powerful and not bad at all. “No” doesn’t mean rejection. It is not personal. When somebody says “no”, it means they are taking care of themselves – what can be more wonderful than seeing a powerful human being in front of you making a choice and not  being afraid of it. “No” is always about a person who is saying it. I know that it’s hard not to self pity ourselves feeling rejected and not loved when somebody says “no”. It’s hard to re-learn what “no” really means.

Just try it – be conscious when you say “no” and what you say “no” to. Reassure yourself that you are enough and you are a wonderful person and it’s not about you when somebody says “no” to you. Say “no” to things and feel the gracefulness of the moment when you say it and the power of the choice. Be kind and gentle. And don’t forget to smile ~

Hello September!

Oh what a lovely summer I had – absorbed some sun at my in-laws’ pool in Nevada, traveled with my hubby to my home country, Lithuania, had plenty of sunny weekends with lots of outdoors, got to wear (and buy new) summer dresses and open toe shoes..

I wil miss you Summer..!

West Coast Sunset

I remember just a year ago admiring beautiful sunset pictures on the Internet and imagining how it feels to see those beautiful sunsets in real life. Never ever in my life I imagined myself seeing the magic of the evening Sun going behind the hills and hiding in the water.. There is some very comforting peacefulness in those few moments when the Sun is about to go down and give the reign to the stars and Moon.

A Little Bit About Assumptions and Judgements

These past weeks I have been questioning the concept of “don’t judge a book by its cover.” The way I understand it is that I (and anybody else) shouldn’t be fast jumping to assumptions and giving in to first impressions. That makes a total sense and I couldn’t agree more.

My problem with not trusting first impressions is that often times by not trusting our intuition we end up at a not so pleasant place where the world is upside down and there is nothing more stable than going back to the very first feeling/impression about a person (or anything else for that matter). I have been very generous lately in all of my friendships/relationships and justified my friends’ actions that are not acceptable in my own world. What I start realizing is that while it is a really good excersise to be generous and accepting it is also very important to trust your gut instinct/intuition. If you jump to negative assumptions then you should definitely look at yourself and make sure you are not projecting anything. If you jump to positive assuptions and generously look over things then keep the things you looked over in a corner of your eye and see what the next impression of a person will be. Sometimes it is hard because the more generous you are the more you have to learn to overlook things and just let them go – without judgement or any attachment of being right/wrong, good or bad.

Challenge yourself in the next 5 days to see good things about people and compliment them. I am not saying that you should ignore parts that bother your or clash with your worldview. Acknowledge those parts of another person and move on onto something more exciting  ~

 

Let me know how it goes!

Don’t waste time on negative and if something really bothers you – just say it. The worst it will do is it will bring one ending and another beginning…

Colorful Times

I don’t really know what happened and why I neglected my little cute blog. What I know is that it has been too long since my last update/ blog post. I feel if I have some kind of a writing block which has been stopping me from keeping my blog alive..

Anyways, I have been very busy with my little projects these past months – I got many new Girls, I learned about fermentation, I started making my own sauerkraut (who could have thought that it is so easy!), I took couple raw cooking classes and I am approaching the end of my 4th month of green juicing. Exciting! : -)

I also finally got so wanted Nooka watch and a sewing machine – now I have to take some classes and create some neat sewing pieces (I don’t know yet if I end up sewing clothing or something more decorative).

Right, I almost forgot, I also did a yoga month challenge and oh how I loved it! Maybe because I am an Earth sign I really enjoy activities that ground me and it might sound silly, but there is something very rewarding and calming about sticking to a routine and committing to challenges.

Tell me something about your New Year and where you head is at!

Merry Christmas and Lovely New Year!

Here we are again – another year for gift giving and receiving, new goal setting and saying “bye bye” to the old year..

I wish all of you to follow your aspirations and dreams next year, dream big and learn to be disattached from the process of how your dreams come true; be open, follow your hear and be nice to others.

While all of us are different we all have one thing in common – we love and want to be loved. Share your love and let beautiful things come to your life ~

Hugs
