Mindful Self Love Ideals To Live By

Have Fun By Yourself

When you can have fun by yourself, you may gain confidence. Being able to enjoy your own company can help you let go of the need for acceptance or inclusion by others.

Forgive Yourself

Look back and reflect on past decisions and actions. If you can accept, you can move forward and let go. You deserve forgiveness. Once you pinpoint room for improvement, you can try to write it down, tear it up, and bury it, thus allowing yourself to grow.

Challenge Yourself with New Situations

Nothing is more of a confidence boost than challenging yourself to something outside of your comfort zone and attempting it! Whether you achieve your desired outcome or not, you can now tell yourself you tried and you didn’t self destruct. The next time will be even easier; just remind yourself “I can do this.” You can make it fun and simple by just trying something new such as a hobby, activity/club, trip, or restaurant spot!

Goal Setting – AN UNWRITTEN GOAL IS A WISH

Let’s stop wishing and hoping and start planning and achieving! You are 42% more likely to achieve your goals by writing them down. It helps you clarify exactly what it is you’d like to achieve and results in motivating you and keeping you accountable.

Make sure your goals are…

  • Specific: Clear and defined.
  • Measurable: Steps, exact amounts, & dates to be able to measure progress.
  • Attainable: Achievable steps required to meet goals.
  • Relevant: Make it important! It must matter to you, drive you, and motivate you. Otherwise, why would you put your energy into accomplishing it?
  • Achievable by a Reasonable Deadline: When would you like to achieve your goal by? By setting a time limit, you can assess and time out the steps needed and then adjust as you go. Don’t overwhelm yourself, consider current responsibilities and restraints.
Write It Down

Writing down your feelings can be a positive way of letting go of negative emotions and experiences. Brainstorming, dreams, to do lists, and creative writing are all positive activities to release creative energy.

Be Your #1 Cheerleader Instead of Leader of the Firing Squad

Build yourself up. Prevent setting yourself up to fall or you’re the one taring you down. Praise yourself, smile, and be thoughtful of your mind, heart, and body. Replace negative doubts or insults with forgiveness and encouragement. Remind yourself of why you put forth your energy into the aspects of your life and review your goals. Allow yourself to take breaks so you do not get burnt out at, well life.

Set Healthy Boundaries: Ability to Say No To Others

Set and honor healthy boundaries. Decide what you are and aren’t okay with. You are the gatekeeper of compromising your morals. Enjoy doing what you can, when you can. It’s easier to let anxieties of other’s expectations go when you respect yourself and set healthy boundaries.

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

You decide how much energy to spend negatively. Try to worry less or become frustrated by non threatening issues. (If it isn’t detrimental to yourself or your morals it probably isn’t worth your energy.)

Create Manifestation (Vision) and Celebration Boards

While working towards your goals, a great motivator is to see and review your goals (whether in list form or image). At the same time, it’s important to celebrate your mini victories. Self appreciation is a rewarding and encouraging feeling. Take some time to envision your goals and find, print, make, or cut out images that represent what you want to achieve, where you want to go, and how you want to be. You also want to include an image to represent why you want to focus your energy towards manifesting your future. Place these items as decoratively or plainly in a single place and display somewhere you see daily. On a second “board,” list out your accomplishments. Leave a place for you to add to this list and practice giving yourself credit.

Take Care Of Yourself

Being true to yourself (trusting the voice in your head or feeling in your gut), providing yourself enough nutrients and rest, removing and overcoming stressors, sticking to your morals and boundaries, and fueling your heart and mind with love, acceptance, and growth. When you take care of yourself, you then can be the best version of you which in turn you can be the best you can be for others.

Spike + Xander = SpanderSpike + Xander = Spander

Recently I received a custom order inspired by the Buffy the Vampire Slayer characters Xander and Spike (“Spander”), my very first pendant request inspired by this wacky duo. I couldn’t wait to get started!

We worked together to decide which charms would truly represent them. I did a quick mental inventory of the charms I already had, however, I knew I needed a few more for this ultimate key.

Together we decided to use the largest key available for this combination of charms. The large key, meant for a decoration piece, is about 5 inches tall and up to 2 1/2 inches wide. In this way, she can display her key while at home to enjoy.

Knowing this client personally, I knew she’d want to show off her piece of art. I asked her if she’d like a clip to make it easy to take from a decoration to a wearable totem. She put her faith, literally in my hands.

Read on to find out how the final key came together. Customize your own Nicholas Brendon inspired key pendant now! Coming Soon: Customize a Buffy Inspired key pendant!

The Inspiration

“Spander” Screenshot – Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 7, Episode 6

Spike Elements

  • Fangs: Vampire’s are known for their blood sucking fangs. However in one episode, Xander said Spike was fangless while living in Xander’s basement. To convey this fangless idea, I wrapped wire around the fangs to express the idea of a fangless vampire.
  • Leather Duster: Spike typically would be spotted wearing his aged leather duster.
  • Boot: Spike paired a pair of tall boots with every outfit choice.
  • Whiskey Bottle: Spike is often found nursing from his favorite bottle when he’s heartbroken.

Xander Elements

  • Construction Hat: “Xander” worked in construction from seasons 4 to 7 in between supporting the Slayer, saving the world, giving world saving speeches himself, and opening the second High School located atop of the hellmouth.
  • Skateboard: “Xander Harris” had a grand entrance in the series premiere, Welcome to the Hellmouth.
  • Pizza Box: Xander delivered pizza for a time, often sharing a box with the Scooby Gang.

Spander Elements

  • Hawaiian T-shirt: “Xander” was known for his vivid and printed wardrobe, however in one doomed episode, Spike wore his shirt while planning to fall upon a stake to kill himself.
  • TV Set: The TV Spike often watched Passions and Dawson’s Creek. Xander enjoyed watching Bollywood flicks with Buffy and Willow.
  • Rope: I tied a cord to the key to represent Spike being tied up to Xander’s recliner in the basement as an extra safety measure after he had a chip implanted.
  • X & S: I added simple letter charms representing the names Xander & Spike.

Finishing Touches

I added a lava stone to connect to the clasp to finish off the pendant. I also added this mindful item to use as an oil diffuser to help relieve headaches or stress. Next I used a flower on the clasp to tie back to the Hawaiian shirt charm featured on the key.

The Result!

About Sarah Allison’s Designs

https://www.1ofakindmind.com/home/about/sarah-allisons-designs/
At age 14 she took her first trip with her grandmother out West and discovered jewelry making. Meeting her Great Uncle ‘Pudge’ Allison for the first time in Albuquerque, NM, they set off to Paggosa Springs from there, CO. When driving into the small mountain town, they spotted a bead shop. She fell in awe and has been making jewelry for over 15 years.

Sarah’s designs typically feature natural elements. After losing her aunt to caner, she looked for natural ways of improving ones life and health and found DoTerra Essential Oil. The benefits from essential oils can relieve anxiety, stomach aches, muscle pain, headaches, and nausea for starters, allowing you to skip the medications and chemicals you normally would have turned to. To help facilitate this practice, she incorporates lava stones in her jewelry in which you may drop your favorite scent on, wearing it with you throughout the day. If you have any questions regarding essential oils she’d be happy to consult you and is a DoTerra representative.

Throughout Sarah’s sale career, she realized the power of having a positive mental attitude. Having the right state of mind can change everything! To help clear negativity and hone in on improvements one wants to make, Sarah incorporates crystals and natural elements into her designs. This beautiful step in a daily routine can make a positive impact. When one wants to clear negative energy and is wearing an element such as Smokey Quartz, it gives you a mind and earth bond strong enough to steer you away harmful energies.
