Acceptance.

Hello!

Yes, I know I have been at a distance for a very long time… However I got inspired to write a blog. 

So here I am..

I was waiting for this moment and it finally arrived.

I have been trying to figure out life and all this adult-ing shit that comes with it and I oftentimes feel very overwhelmed with what’s going on…

…Like overwhelmed, overwhelmed to the point where I wonder if I am doing too much, doing too little, doing the wrong things or I just don’t know how to say no?

I am understanding that I work off my energy, my energy tells me what I see myself doing or what I NEED to be doing, of course, my energy comes from the guidance of God……or at least that is my belief 🙂

Am I doing enough to give myself the successful life I dream of? 

I oftentimes ask myself that because of who I am as a person…

My energy vibrates on a much higher wavelength than any other. I know because I have spent enough time with myself to be confident enough to say what I just said…

Yet I still question myself …

Hmmm.

“Am I enough? ”

“Am I going to be better?”

“Are my enough?”

In asking myself these negative questions I fall into the trap of actually thinking and feeling as if  I am not enough and that I am not doing enough. I then think about all the things that need to be accomplished and the weight becomes so unbearable and I eventually crash,  then I stumble.

The mental burden is real…

Your thoughts are so important to your happiness and your well-being.

The thought I want to leave with you my loves, my supporters, my readers is the fact that once again.. I am learning acceptance.

Accepting where I am in life at this very moment is very important, wishing for things to be different is a waste of my energy…

Acceptance is a more efficient use of my energy, by simply accepting what is happening… right now… in my life.

I am having the honey bee mentality which is always a win…

All I do each day is accept my life and allow myself to see the positivity in every situation..where I see my growth and if I can see a little light that simply means there is hope and there are more opportunities out there for me in this life, so I need to do what it takes and KEEP GOING.

USING ALL THE ENERGY IT TAKES FOR ME TO KEEP GOING in order for me to see the light at the end of the tunnel because I already know it is there.

I KNOW.

For me this means there is a way out, no matter how a day might look dark, there are going to be sunny days ahead of me.

I MUST BE GRATEFUL!

I MUST GIVE THANKS!

NO MATTER WHAT.

Current song: Can’t hold we down by Kano (Ft. Popcaan)

I love it because I just saw Popcaan’s growth, I remember him in his video ‘Dream’ to now seeing him in this video with Kano wearing his Moncler puffer jacket.

That’s dope.

I see that.

THAT’S GROWTH.

That came with not giving up on yourself and I am happy that I was reminded of that.

If I should look at all the negatives in my life it would lead me astray.  Yeah, we all have those negative thoughts as humans but that is where we should remember to always overcome and allow the day to happpen and MOVE ON.

I am learning not to overthink and not to worry. I oftentimes find myself worrying about a moment that has not even arrived…what helps me is having faith, hope and belief in my life.

87bc24f8d866c4fc6183b616929a970d

Honestly…

I will reinforce that… just simply have faith, hope, and belief that your future will be better and better with each stage in life…

& ACCEPTING that there are going to be some real shit days because trust me love there are more character-building days ahead of us!

Keep going my love.

Keep going.

Cheers to July

Hello Readers, 

What a blessing to see the sunrise on July 1, 2019.

I am thankful. 

I know I have been totally MIA and I like being honest with you guys it was due to the fact that I did not have anything to say, i was not inspired and it was a really struggle to blog. But I said to myself 

“Kris, sometimes you just have to start typing and everything falls in place.”

So here I am. 

I want to claim happiness, success and growth in July. This month is really a big deal for me, many changes are happening and as the time gets closer I get scared and fearful but I also have a strong voice in my head that says “FUCK YOU FEAR”  and I try not to discuss my decisions with anyone, even though having a second opinion from someone who has experience is good it can be challenging and confusing due to the fact that no one is the same and we all think differently. Along with being reminded that your path will be different from others, we all have a path that is special and unique to us, even on the outside it might look the same. In all this excitement and changes that is happening in my life I want to remember to have faith in God, he carried me THIS FAR! I am where I am because of GOD protecting me and covering me under his blood, no doubt about that. I have seen and experience his work and I am patiently waiting to see what he has in store for me. 

Cheers to July!

My Jumps are Necessary

One of the best decision to date was the fact I left my home country the third largest Caribbean ISLAND to LIVE, in the worlds second largest country. Anyone who told your that their transition from living in one country to the next is easy and fabulous probably lied and I said probably 😂🤷🏿‍♀️

Oh Canada!

We the North! 🇨🇦

Eh?

“No no, I will pay for it”

Yesterday I was reflecting on my life and telling someone how I am pretty Canadianized, lol. 100% Jamaican and I absolutely love my country but I have really adapted to the Canadian culture in a number of way, I have my favourite Canadian meals and bevearages, I find a sunny 11 degrees Celsius the perfect kind of weather, I enjoy the easiest of meals, still love to cook though… so many other things. 😂

True gratitude was when I realized how necessary Canada was for my growth both physically and mentally, developing my disciplinary skills allowed me to practice faith and patience at a deeper level which allowed me to be closer to God. I am still learning that you can’t stay one place for too long, you have to to go find yourself in the world 🌎, you have to take scary jumps, these jumps are not easy but I needed Canada so I could have matured in the beautiful young lady I am today.

I will always be thankful for my journey and opportunities that I have received and I say thank you in advance for opportunities that are on its way and are already mine, thank you. 🥰

3:00am

I decided to stay up to get some work done because frankly I have been slacking, this was ensured by a cup of coffee I had after 9pm. Now that I have completed my work I am still wired on coffee and can’t sleep, on nights like these I browse through Pinterest; my virtual vision board and I found a picture with profound words that resonates perfectly with me at this very moment, it reminded me of how important and necessary sleep is 💕💫

Sleep will restore me.

Good Night , as I type this I am getting real sleepy. 💋

I’m Just Scared.

 

Scared but still fearless.

#ThingsAHumanWillDo

What I have been afraid to admit all along is that I am honestly scared, yes, no doubt this little girl all the way from Mandeville, Jamaica is BRAVE…I have the heart of a Lioness and I know that because I know my heart ❤️ (wish I could get some coconut water right now 😉). I left the only place I knew as home to move to a totally different country, wow, even just thinking about it gives me goosebumps but I did it anyways because I try my best to foresee the future.

Yes it would have been EASIER to be satisfied with a particular level but I chose the harder route…so, I made a move because I wanted older me to have something great, all my hard work and tears, lol only GOD knows how many times I go to bed bawling! Now I look back I can laugh but I also know there are many more teary eyed nights ahead and maybe that makes me a little scared.

Just maybe…

I am very proud of how strong I have been with the fights I have fought, the endless mind battles of decisions, choices and I admire my discipline that made me press along like Paul (My high school Chem teacher told my class this almost every time we had Chem class, those words are stuck with me). I have evolved, I have become stronger,I have unlocked new intelligence, emotions and control of these emotions. Yet I still get scared of the next level of my life that I am about to unlock and I wanted to admit that and get it off my chest.

Blogging is very therapeutic for me and many times the only way I express my thoughts. Have I told anyone in my circle that I am scared?….NOPE. Will they read this? Probably not. And I am cool with that just showing logic  that we all have our methods of letting things out. 💫🌱🤗

In all, I am going to do what I always do and what I must…walk in the faith of God knowing that what is mine will be mine and in whatever I do there has to be a purpose, an impact, spread of kindness, love, discipline, hope, understanding and patience.

I will keep going, I will keep trying to be better than I was yesterday, everyday. I have a thing where I say out loud “Tomorrow will be a better day” “Just a few more hours Kris” “You don’t need to look at your phone right now”

I have to remind myself of the reasons why it is important for me to keep focus and keep working my ass off. I am doing this not for 25 year old me to enjoy, hell nah, this is for Glory Thirties, Winning Forties, Flourish Fifties and so on, with each level it won’t get easier, I will still have to work fucking hard but will also be reaping the rewards of what younger me planted 🌱 and that’s the whole POINT!

So even if I am scared, I am also fearless and will greet fear at each level of my life because this ultimately is for my legacy! 🙏🏿

6. Dear Future-Self 💋

Dear Kris,

Handbags are cuter but you are more of a comfort and efficient  kind of girl. 

Today was definitely a backpack kind of day 🎒 

Oh and WATER, always!⭐️

Dear Kris,

Every “NO” is a blessing.

Every opportunity missed is a blessing. When things don’t go the way you planned, it’s a blessing from GOD reminding you that he has something GREATER for you.

Be Patient 💕

Dear Maria, 

I understand the way you are feeling.

I get it and its okay….woman to woman just take deep breaths, go for a run, do some yoga and stretches so your blood can flow. 

I definitely know that nauseous feeling Maria…when the workload, stress and anxiety takes over and suddenly it seems as if there isn’t enough space for your heart or lungs the way your chest hurts.

Breathing suddenly hurts and maybe not having a heart is not such a bad idea. Right?

Trust me I know.  

Relax Maria, take it one step at a time and remember all the obstacles and hurdles in your way will make you stronger and wiser.

Go get some rest.

Tomorrow will be a better day.

Love,

Krissy Wilby

Happy International Women’s Day 🌍🥂

This letter is dedicated to every woman that I have come across and they have given me hope and motivation in someway or form. To the women I know in real life, met on social media or never even met just came across your story. 

This is for you 🤗

 

Dear Strong Woman,

I appreciate your efforts, hard work and contribution to the betterment of society. No need for cliches but you are PHENOMENAL.

PHENOMENAL WOMAN YOU ARE. 

Even on your low days you are unbothered by it all for you know not all days are sunny and glamorous, you are so understanding, caring and kind.

Oh strong woman, how you balance work life, family life and social life amazes me. Thanks for showing me that the world has no limitations for us being leaders, mothers and wives all at the same time. How you tackle the  job/ career  that was once known as a “man’s job”,  and doing it all while PMS-ing, on your period, pregnant, or in heels. Just all things a man could never experience empowers me to continue working hard on my journey and that giving up is not an option. 

Strong woman thank-you for showing me that resting to rejuvenate, self care, self love and time for self is always an important factor in success. Strong woman you are beautiful, elegant & powerful.

Independent woman, I truly admire you.

I am happy I came across you.

Keep going, you are enough.

Yours truly,

Another strong woman ❤️
