Can You Believe There is a Difference? Liberation and Freedom

Background

In my early twenties I was unstoppable. I had several investment properties. I had amazing friendships. Life was indeed fun. In 2015 I found myself wanting to be free of marriage and money problems. Sadly, after an emotionally devastating divorce and three foreclosures I really felt like a failure. I would lay in the bed all day. I felt numb. There were times I would get up to eat very little which consisted of plain oatmeal or yogurt.

Making a Decision

Then one day I made a decision. Thoughts of failure would no longer imprison me. I gave depression a deadline. I made a choice to make the rest of my days the best of my days.  The fight has just begun. Everyday there are unseen forces fighting to keep us from fulfilling our goals and dreams.

There is a Difference

All this time I thought freedom and liberation meant the same thing. A quick Dr. Google search told me different.

Liberation: The act of setting someone free from imprisonment, slavery, or oppression; release.

Freedom: The state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.

It takes liberation to achieve freedom.

Aha-Moment

I had an aha- moment. Liberation is the journey to freedom. Life will constantly throw up roadblocks and obstacles. We must overcome.  The great thing is you don’t have to do it alone. There are life coaches such as myself that can ask you those questions and help you on your journey.

Nurse Success System Wins: Note from the Organized Nurse

Nurse success system. Note from the organized nurse. Every time I leave the parking garage at work, there is a five-six minute walk to the nursing floor. While I often sing a motivational song, or say a prayer, one thing is a must, pocket setup.  There are seven pockets on my nursing uniform at any given time.

Nurse Success System: Pocket Organization

I have a plastic bag full of tools. Each pocket has a purpose:

  • One pocket for pens
  • Another pocket for scissors and a pill splitter
  • Then there is the small pocket for alcohol wipes
  • Pants pocket gets the Sharpie marker, the highlighter, and the dry erase marker
  • Another pocket get the iv tubing protectors and tape
  • Then there is the special pocket for my cell phone and candy

Stare On, I Have a System

I have gotten weird stares from other nurses.  Visitors on the elevator try not to look. Funny thing is, “It does not bother me.” The last thing I want to do is look unprepared in front of my patients.  The same nurses that snicker are the same ones that asks to borrow one of my handy tools later during the shift.

Success Is In Your System

You see, much like anything you do in life, the success is in your system.

  • Planning your day
  • Cleaning your house
  • Working your business
  • Managing your finances

Systems work. If you don’t believe me, look at McDonald’s.  The other day I was in the drive thru. It amazed me they had a machine to dispense the cup of water I requested!  

Back to the Point.

  • My pocket system saves me time.
  • Makes me more prepared.
  • Allows me to quickly realize when something is missing.

Where in your life  do you need structure and a system?

Happy Home? How do you feel when you are home, the lights go out, and the world is quiet?

My not-so happy home. Before the new year I took an assessment of my home. At the suggestion of Quadeera Teart, in her “I Am a Celebrity Woman” workbook, I decided to clean up and get organized. First there was the clean up. Then, I looked around and still wasn’t satisfied. Secondly, I moved the big furniture around. Ironically, something was still missing.

I had a flash back moment. Years ago I would fill up the walls of my house with inspirational messages every where. Literally, the kitchen, living room, and my bedroom were an oasis of positive messages.

I wanted some new decor for my living room. The “money matters” millennial in me waited until after the new year. I went to several department stores. After a day of no results I went into Bealle’s outlet. They had all the Christmas items at half-off. Some items were even 70% off.  Can we say #winning ?

I purchased some cute pillows (seen above), a throw and some table decor for less than $80. I was satisfied. Now every time I come home I see the word “home.” Magically I relax as soon as I walk through my front door.  My soft pleather couch is “my happy place,” no matter what kind of day I have had.

Our Home, Our Attitude

However, I began to think about how our home affects our attitude. So let me asks you again, how happy is your home?

Trouble with us millennials is, we often look to social media to find happiness. Online people can be who they want to be. We then compare and look at what is missing from our own lives instead of analyzing what we really desire to make us happy. How do you feel when you are home, the lights go out, and the world is quiet?

Where you rest your head, should be that happy place. What colors surround you?  What does your home smell like? How organized are you? Do you surround yourself with pictures and quotes that lift you up?

That Happy Place

TSH Society is all about promoting that happy place. In the book “The Liberated Lifestyle”, I discuss a previous situation where I did not desire to go home. I would do anything to stay away. When I was there my spirit was not at ease. I no longer take for granted the wonderful feeling to be home and be comfortable.

Happy Home Challenge

I challenge you this week to look around your home. Operation happy home in full effect! What can you do better? If you share living quarters at least have a wall, corner, or shelf that is all you.  Remove three items that you no longer need. Add at least one item that you will see and will instantly make you smile.

Email pictures to thesimplyhappysociety@gmail.com if you care to share. Would love to see the positive changes. Ta ta for now.
