Happy Monday, friends! Here’s a quote that Betsy would like to share with y’all:
Change is part of the growth cycle. Understand why the change is happening in your life.
Maybe it’s the stereotypical part of my Taurean nature, but I don’t like change. I like to do things in a routine and remain comfortable. Perhaps it’s a flaw on my own end. Or maybe I’m just lazy 😂
In any case, change is a crucial part in our lives. No matter what point in your life you’re currently experiencing, every change is happening for a reason. Some changes are planned. Some changes aren’t.
It’s important to recognise why these changes are happening. Whether if the answers are immediate or at a later time, it will be known one way or another.
Have you experienced a moment in your life where change occurred and had to reflect as to why it happened? I would love to read your responses below 💭
Happy Monday, friends! I’m starting off a fun series called “Betsy the Lotus Cow Says” where Betsy quips in about life from a moo-tivational and sassy manner.
Betsy’s quote for the day:
It’s okay to fail! That’s how we learn. There’s no such thing as a perfect life.
Oh boy. I tried so hard in not wanting to fail, but it happens. The Moon in Virgo part of me feels the need to make everything perfect and top-notch. Doing half-assed work makes me feel super guilty. However, the Sun in Taurus part of me realizes that I need to chill out. And perhaps for a good reason, too.
What I’ve learned over the past couple of years is that failing is part of our growth process. As much as we don’t want to admit it, failing helps us provide a newer perspective that we never discovered before until now. Whether if it’s career, life, relationships, etc…there’s plenty of opportunities for growth.
I think for many of us, we’re too focused (including myself) that having a perfect plan will set us up for a perfect future. It’s not a linear path all of us take. If you were to imagine your life in a graphical perspective, the line would be filled with ups and downs on the chart. Some points you’ll hit rock bottom. And that’s ok.
Today, I ask you to step aside the perfectionism and embrace those flaws. At the end of the day, we’re all human. Learn from your mistakes and understand that this is part of the larger experience at hand.
Rooting for you on this manic Monday!
Sometimes when things get hectic, I rely on one thing that helps me stay sane (aside from eating food). And that is…taking a nap!
I think many of us take naps for granted, especially when we get older. Of course, handling children and trying to squeeze in a few winks is difficult to do so. That’s why I try my best to take one either during my lunch break or when I’m finally finished with my work. Those 10-15 minutes are pure bliss.
What’s your form of self care?
It’s not you. It’s me.
Well…that depends on the person and the situation. Still, I’m selective on how I like to spend my time 🙃
Being an introvert is not about purposely pissing off folks just to be left alone. A lot of times, we just want that solitude to recharge our batteries. I’m pretty sure there are other folks that I’ve declined invitations wonder as to why I don’t want to mingle and socialise.
I’m content living at home, doing my activities and tending to my personal businesses.
Betsy, on the other hand…well, she makes sure to have her boundaries in place 🐮
Introverted peeps – let me know in the comments on how you cope with situations like these.
Another week, another reason to stay in bed 🛌
Hope you’re taking it easy for the new week!
I don’t wanna go back to the grind 😭😭😭 wish I can sleep in more and do nothing 😴
