Yesterday, an angel told me to focus on four things. She talked to me about trust. She talked to me about forgiveness. She talked to me about retreat. And she talked to me about abundance.
I don't trust most people. Hold up, let me clarify that. I don't trust most people to do the right and smart thing that benefits the whole. Ok. That's better. I somewhat trust people to be who they are. The reason I say somewhat is because a lot of us change depending on circumstance and opportunity. So with that being said, I guess I should trust people to be fluid and changing. *shrugs*
I must, however, learn to trust the process. Knowing how to do that in response to ANY situation relaxes me and allows me to be my "self". Trusting the process, for me, means knowing that everything will work out for the best regardless of what the "current" situation looks like. I don't have to do much. Sometimes just showing up is enough. Other times I have to act, but I do that from a place of peace and love and not fear. Being able to trust the process is a blessing.
She told that forgiveness will help to relieve me of the burden of anger and irritation. Forgive everyone and everything she said. Live in the moment because it's the only one that matters. Give myself permission to let go of things and feelings and memories that no longer serve me. That's what freedom looks like.
I used to plan "down time" on my calendar. Part of being Ellen Gee is being able to make decisions about what I will and won't do and when I can and can not do things. I've been telling myself that the "grind ain't gonna grind itself"....meaning, if I don't get out and put in work, I can't be made if I don't get the success results I'm looking for. What I was reminded about yesterday though is that I can't be ANYTHING to ANYONE without properly caring for myself. The world won't shift on its axis if I'm missing in action for a moment. When I allow myself the opportunity to retreat to replenish my energy, when I carve out time to do nothing but BE, when I enjoy myself and my life, I'm better equipped to handle being Ellen Gee in the world. I can show up fully with love.
I accept the good GRACIOUSLY into my life. All of my needs are met abundantly now and always
Note to self: Listen to your angels when they speak to you and trust that they guide you where you want and need to be.
Thanks for reading <3
Since May is such an incredible month for me as far as the grind is concerned, I've decided to document my experiences. It's mostly for me to "remember" what happened because you know.......so much is going down! LOL
So this past weekend on Friday, I had the pleasure of hosting the Fashion Spa House by MsPrity. That Glamour Girl was there with me capturing moments. Visit her here to find out about her. There were awesome vendors in the building and guests were gifted with prizes (TANG A LANG A LANG #insider) and had the opportunity to take advantage of so many beauty services AND SHOP! It was a fashionista's dream event and I'm looking forward to the next one is October. Get more information here!
Saturday evening, I hooked up with the ladies of The Divas D.I.S.H. to support E. Wonder's 9-to-5. We attended the 9th Annual Community Mediation Maryland Gala. Man listen, E. Wonder is a SUPERSTAR-RUH in the place ok!!!??!!!! And we felt like superstars for being associated with her. We got to party with some peace keepers. We even taught some of them how to wobble. You know how the Divas do!!!! Find out more about the organization here. They know how to PARTAY!!!!!!
I ended my Saturday night with a party with the Divas and some close friends at Nzuri Salon & Spa. Shout out to the caterer, DJ Rome, Adult Ice Beverage Series, and Terrence Joseph for their hospitality and wonderfulness. We got it IN at that party too!!!!!! We ate, drank, were merry, and danced our asses off. They are still on the floor of that spot. I am so serious. There's video proof of our shenanigans on IG and Facebook. Feel free to scavenger hunt to find them on my Facebook page!
I wrapped up my weekend work by editing the Divas DISH podcast for Monday, May 11th. Click here anytime after 7 pm EST to listen to the Divas discuss #BringBackOurGirls and their Mother's Day reflections.
My children blessed me with love and jewelry and food for the holiday. I really appreciate them so much. My god-daughter came over and is staying for a few days and I'm going out to dinner tonight. (I can't with the mama's day crowds)
Overall, I deem my weekend a success....like most of them are. I have pictures to prove it! Check out a few.......
I'm Ellen Gee. When I'm honest, we learn things. When I'm not, we learn things too.
