Jody Watley. Welcome 2020.

 

Many best of shares on my social media and a bit of reflection – check them out on Facebook and Instagram. In gratitude for each day, I’ve never been one to focus on time – however there is a significance of not only a new year, but a new decade. 2020 baby! Let’s get it.

Just l i v e. If you never try, or set goals – you have nothing to aspire for.

In my mind there were a list of things I was going to cover but once writing they didn’t feel that important to me and didn’t want to make this super long.

What I know is each day is a new opportunity to begin anew, learn from life and lessons, continue with each breath of life to cherish each day and those we love, support them and allow their growth – and please pay attention to actions –  not words from people but those words do often matter too – pay attention to the energy you allow.

Appreciate each day, opportunity and lesson, be open to possibilities. Dwell in possibility.

The past is a touchstone to let it teach, energize, inspire, and/or also remember in fondness those who have touched our lives and may no longer be present physically.

Pay attention to people, bringing this up again –  especially those you allow into your life as their motives may not always be genuine or healthy. Like my Mom likes to say ‘..more will be revealed…” and that is true once you focus in with that 2020 – it’s all there for better or worse.  Not everyone in your circle is rowing, some may be poking holes. Reflect, just don’t get stuck there and always use your knowledge. Recognize health is wealth – I’m not talking muscles and all of that but your overall well being, mentally and physically so you don’t end up with ailments you could have avoided in many cases – self care. As I wrote in ‘Sanctuary’ as a reminder that our home environments no matter how big or small are so important – fill your walls with happy times, peace of mind..a safe place…

People will think and believe what they want – let them, speak your piece if you choose and move on. If they don’t like you in the first place their mind is made up even if it’s fake info and don’t really care for the truth at all. This was ever apparent after my Open Letter “Jody Watley Speaks Out” to Shalamar fans in 2016 – wanting it to put to rest the lies, misperceptions, aspersions that have been cast upon my name regarding the reunion topic and beyond. Not only did I speak truth, I provided receipts to back up everything presented, still people persist with the false narratives. The invitation was extended for an American Farewell show or tour two or three times during the decade – it was not only declined but torched with more lies and disrespect, a point that shouldn’t be surprising as it has gone on for decades and so it’s something I hope people let go of – the effort was made from my end. Lessons learned as always — 2020 vision baby! Clarity.

It gets tough when your reputation and or character is being attacked – pick up Don Miguel Ruiz’s ‘The Four Agreements’ so do what you need to do..and then at a point just leave it be.  “The Four Agreements” continues to help me as a practical guide for living. Forgiveness is a beauty and wellness elixir and like saying no to unhealthy fast food, be careful of what you consume on social media.

Some people are still holding on to 40 years ago – I’m not one of them. This decade reaffirmed my realization a lot of people don’t like the truth and are gullible to lies it’s all around just look at the state of American politics ..not to mention blind to the fact a cell or smart phone is not a mere toy or device but is a useful tool for just about anything you’d like to learn,listen to, etc. Be smart and remember everyone is not your friend.

Live life – forget your age…and remember you teach people how to treat you.

My song ‘Another Chapter‘ written at the conclusion of the 90’s going into 00’s still holds true.

Let’s all move forward with clarity and gratitude…. don’t beat yourself up too much no matter what – we are all works in progress as we continue on this journey of life. There will be highs and lows – missteps and triumphs. We all experience days where the mood will be despair and more days full of hope and enthusiasm.

It’s ok to change direction, just don’t get stuck, fearful of mistakes .. try to live with and surround yourself with joy. Another book I recommend that I read a long time ago and re-read not long ago is ‘Conversations With God’ – Neale Donald Walsch. The answers are always here for us and people show you who they are all the time ..pay attention.

Every day is a gift, your life is your own when all is said and done  – never let anyone make you forget that.

Wattage Thoughts. Boundaries. Self Care.

It’s a must. People will disrespect you, run all over you, run you ragged, make you look bad and not care how their actions or behavior may impact you.

Protect your space and energy.

Monday Wattage. Balance.

In the hustle and bustle of life, make sure you have balance. It may difficult at times, but you have to make time not just working, taking care of family or any of the responsibilities you may have but always making room to take care of self and not run yourself into the ground. I want to remind you of the importance of balance.

Wattage Thoughts. Practicing Wellness.

Pause.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

Stretch.

Release and Unwind.

Repeat when necessary.

You’ll be surprised how rejuvenating stretching can be..at home, working out, sitting at a desk, behind a counter..whatever your job may be you can do it anywhere..good for you and a good way to begin or end a day .. or as a break midway through. Practice wellness each day.
