Steps to Manifesting Your Goals

Hello fellow bloggers,

giphy8Sometimes, when dealing with stress, we forget about the goals that we had before those other situations arose. My kids were surprised when I told them I had dreams. Hannah said, “…but moms don’t have dreams. We are your dreams.”Β 


I realized at that moment, that they only know me as, Mom. Not, Ashley the poet, Ashley the dreamer, Ashley the artist, Ashley the super beautiful, super intelligent, super awesome-sauce life giver. πŸ˜‰β˜πŸ½Just, Mom.😎

I spend so much time doing this and doing that (mom duties) that they haven’t seen me in Ashley mode. Well, in their defense, I haven’t been in Ashley mode in over a year due to mental and physical ailments, but all of that is slowly changing. I am determined to be “me” again, whoever “me” is.

Today, I finally took a step towards developing my candle business. “You make candles, Ashley?” Oh, thanks for asking, and yes, yes I do! It’s so relaxing and I love it. I came up with a bunch of excuses (which we love to do) when it comes to following our dreams:giphy13

  1. I cant afford it
  2. The candle supply store is too far
  3. No one is going to buy them
  4. That money can be used else where
  5. I’m too busy
  6. Ain’t nobody got time for that

So today, I took that leap (well my husband drug me) to the candle supply store to buy supplies. Now, I can’t wait to get to work.

I would like to share with you a list of goals that we should try to manifest in our daily lives in order to LIVE our lives to the fullest and accomplish our goals.

I found this list from a wonderful Instagram page dedicated to meditating and love. If you have Instagram, I recommend visiting her page for daily doses of inspiration. You can find her at @meditateandlove. Don’t worry, I took a screenshot of this list beforeΒ my social media fast. I just found it and was like, “Ooohhh, I don’t know what to blog about, so I’m just going to blog about something that someone else came up with.”Β 

  1. Meditate to reprogram your mind
  2. Set a vision/goal board and visualize it
  3. Be grateful and have faith
  4. Have a plan
  5. Acquire necessary skills to get there
  6. Focus on your goal
  7. Take action

Thoughts I had after I read this:


🌸“Come on, warrior!”Β (I call myself warrior when I’m trying to get motivated. Don’t judge me!)Β 

🌸”You got this!”

🌸”Get up, move.”

🌸”Push it, push it, push it.”

🌸”If they can do it (whoever ‘they’ is) then you can do it.”

🌸”Make Jesus proud. He didn’t die for you to moan and cry all the time.”

β€œWhatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men” (Colossians 3:23)

The moral is follow your D.R.E.A.M.S! Do not allow your circumstances to discourage you. My motto is, if you think about a goal that you want to accomplish more than fives times a week, then you need to get off your rump shaker and go for it!πŸ€ͺπŸ‘πŸ½

  3. I have found that the people who promised me the Moon, up, down and sideways, are notably absent right now. That puts me on the path I’ve always walked. if I want it, I’ll earn it and go get it, by myself.
