Some of my best thoughts & come backs have risen from the lows. Not that one dwells in that state for too long, just like the moon, learning to evolve and be okay within, no matter what phase.
You’ll get the part of me, at my fullest, be the shiniest star in the galaxy, where as these days (months) I’ve got into total phase of the other side of the moon and you’ll be lucky if you catch even the slightest glimpse.
It’s vital to my learning process and growth to love all the stages and celebrate the sequences that create our entire being. Some people get bits and pieces, of our soul and synergy and if they’re lucky, they’ll stay and change the alignment of your cosmos entirely.
Energy is like that, life is like that, the present is definitely that. Appreciate the highlights, lowlights and everything in between as things would have their time and day, be present with what you are now before it passes without you enjoying it all its full pace/phase.

During this quarantine I have devoted some deep thinking and dove right into my habits and have been constantly rewiring my inner being to arrive at a prime level. Since the shut down, I have been developing and fine tuning my focus and getting to know an activator role as a signature strength.
I googled a quick “how to tap in mentally and flip the switch.”
Here are six ways to maximize your strengths:
- realize your natural (known) strengths. …
- identify your hidden strengths. …
- strengthen your strengths. …
- manage your weaknesses and limit your learned behaviors. …
- daily reflection. …
- beware of overdone strengths.
These may seem like just words on a page however I encourage you to seek and get to know your own signature strengths! There are unlimited sources out there in the inter webs and the two websites I decided to partake in are Clifton Strengths via the recommendation of a wellness conference I attended last year and Via Institute per the recommendation of my Yale professor.
Anyways, I have been actively pursing a more wholesome and active lifestyle. I’ve kept some vices but I have been stricter about my cheat day and choices. Having limited access to what my norm is totally fine. It’s part of the reboot and restarting process.
The lack of what has been consuming my time, maybe not even of the healthiest of ways has been replaced with the awareness that when one knows better, one does better.
Happy one month of commitment to me, AJ
This is a mantra that I’ve held close to my being and existence for the past year. This silent and often repeated affirmations has kept me through character building times!
This photo was taken today, as I had a moment, coming full circle in the lessons I have endured and learned these last few years.
Even with the world as at a standstill.
I am exactly where I need to be. Right place, here now, AJ
