Expectation Breakers of the Week: Blessico the Society aka Blessico Clothing

This past weekend @blessthesociety, on Instagram, came together with friends, family and other young creatives in the city of Atlanta, Georgia to spread the love of giving back. Their brand and motif focuses on promoting a lifestyle of appreciation of all of the blessings we have in our lives, and this is exactly what they did for so many people in need during the season of giving Thanks and spreading love. These young people gave out food, water, shoes, shirts, hoodies, and other Blessico clothing to those who needed it the most, the homeless.
Thank you guys for always practicing your creative crafts in creating top-notch urban wear, and in blessing those around you.

Check out this video via @Instagram of this past weekend event, follow them on Instagram @blessthesociety, and shop with the family on http://www.BlesstheSociety.com.

The Three Mmms: Meditation, Medication and Me…

Welcome, Welcome, WELLLLCOMEEE right on in, Expectation Breakers! We are back today with a little inner standing about loving, expressing, and protecting thyself each and everyday. Self care is a must on the ‘To Do List’ of life. However, sometimes it’s the second to last activity we engage in throughout our days. How can we help others in this Universe if we aren’t taking care of ourselves? Hmmm. Great question. The answer is well, you can’t. Point, blank, question mark? 

On the other hand, there are ways we can love, express and protect ourselves each and everyday, which is by meditating, medicating and being well within ourselves (mindfulness). Yes, it sounds simple and easy, but a lot of us aren’t taking care of ourselves. We are stressing ourselves out mentally, physically and emotionally, and hurting each other because we are sick and hurt. 

Meditation is a healing process in which we can experience each day. Well, it’s not really a process, but it is cathartic. Meditation is taking a couple minutes out our day, for beginners, or hours to quiet ourself. Quieting the world around us, outside us, but also quieting inside us can be done easily. Quieting the inside must come first, but if you have to go backwards to get started that’s fine too. 

Meditation is calming the mind of thoughts and focusing on either our breathes, heartbeats ( inside activity) , or background noise in the settings we are at in that moment. We may meditate while dancing, eating, drinkkng, or sleeping. Being and just being present is the key of meditation. Constantly hearing, seeing, and feeling the ‘NOW’ presence gives us such an emotional bliss, in which allows us to be in our natural state. We are beings that crave just ‘being’ in utter and total stillness.

When we become mindful of what and how we think, the foods we eat, the energy we allow to be around or express to others, and the activities we do daily, we began to change. We become the beings we want to be. It naturally creates itself. Like attracts like. Eating junk food and then wondering why we have upset stomachs is an example of unmindfulness. Eating food with Fiber, Calcium, Vitamins A-Z, protein, and other viable ailments that we already possess in our bodies gives the energy, the care, and the health our soul needs. This is our medicine. Food is love. Food is medicine. 

Sometimes we put other people or outside things before our own happiness because of unconscious habits. Taking care of ‘Me’ is as important if not more important than taking care of everyone else. Being and being mindful of how we are feeling daily creates great health. Meditation (breathing exercises, or quiet time), eating great food, taking walks, exercising, or just going out with friends are great ways of taking care of ‘Me’. We don’t even have to spend time with other people to get our ‘Me’ time. Doing all the things we love, emerging ourselves into total enjoyment in whatever we are currently doing gives us the healing we think we get from prescription drugs, or the outside world. And it’s free. 

All in all understanding and practicing the three Mmms: Meditation, Medication, and Me breathes life into us. If we practice these simple notions each day we become our greatest selves. Everything else in our life such as family, work, and health aligns itself.

Millennials: Should We Have Our Shit Together by age 25?Β 

Recently at work, I overheard two coworkers discussing the age range when we as people should have “our shit together”, or in laymen’s terms, be settled in into our lives. I laughed out loud to myself, and continued to work. They heard me laughing then asked, when did I think “we”, as people, should have “our shit together”.  I said well whatever I say is based on my perception, so it doesn’t really matter. As usual, or what happens in most of my conversations with people, they asked me what I meant by my statement, so I chimed in a little. Everything we are seeing, everything we are doing, and everything we are experiencing and or discussing are all perceptional. Nothing is as it seems.

We live in a world where we are trained to believe that we have to rush through life, and follow a particular formula in order to live or be “happy” or “successful”. In my ever being this is a false hope. The reality suggested is an illusion of someone elses view of life. 

As young as the age of four or five years old,  we as children are implemented into a system, an educational system that trains and manipulates us to live, breath, and think a certain way for twelve years. We are trained in behaviors to control our young creative and logical thoughts We are encouraged to follow orders from people in higher positions (superiors), rewarded when we “act” in ways our so called superior perceives as “right”, and discipled when our so called superior perceives them as “wrong”. We are put on a timed schedule throughout our day for an average of eight hours, and are always asked or told everything we are doing is important because it is shaping our future.  But is it really? Probably not.

Now, if  we observe all these things and then ask ourselves when is the right age to be settled into our lives to have “your shit together”, what answer do we actually get? How can anyone put an age on a lifestyle of manipulation or control? 

For me, I will never have my shit together, because I will never be settled into my life. I’m always growing, always creating, and always learning. I have the rest of my life to enjoy every moment of each day. If I worry about having life together at age twenty five, I will be miserable and unhappy. I am twenty four years old, in human years, and I am so young. I’m a baby evolving into a child, evolving into a adult, evolving into the universe. Why worry about anything?

 Lets enjoy this life. Let’s enjoy the now. Let’s be satisfied with waking up each morning with the sun shining through our windows. I am breathing today. This is satisfying. I am blessed. This is having my shit together! 

Tune into Your Vortex Tuesday: “Abraham Hicks”(rare video)

Something New Saturday

Hello, Expectation breakers! We are back today to spread some love and understanding today. Something New Saturday is here for those souls who wish to do, create or think up something new in their lives. 

We woke up another day today. We are breathing another breath. We are hearing new voices. We are speaking new thoughts into actions today. How are you feeling in this moment right now? 

We are happy and thankful to be able to write to you today. Today we inspire others to write a list for themselves. Write a list, either numbered or conveying bullet points on places, things, people or desires you want to create in your life. You can give yourself a timeline such as “Goals for 2018” or something vague such as “My Wish List”. Be creative. Allow your mind to wonder and imagine all the things you want to have or do in your life that will bring love, happiness, and an abundance of peace. For example, “β€’Get headshots developed for modeling portfolio”.

Once you have created your list or lists, read them either to yourself or out aloud, and feel how each creation will make you feel once you’ve attained them. Feel how you will feel when you have it, and visualize yourself having these things or doing these things. Trick yourself into being child like and imagine yourself enjoying your life the way you want it to be. Appreacite the life you have. Give thanks to the world you live in, to the walk in your steps, to the food in your stomach, and or to the shelter over your head. Being grateful for everything that makes you happy in your life NOW will fuel a calming and securing feeling of genuity that will attract the life you will receive.
Let’s do something new today. Let’s create the feelings, the love, and the happiness that we all want in our lives each day. Let’s be the people we want to attract. Let’s allow prosperity into our lives and spread something new around us.
