5 Things My Mother Has Taught Me

5 Things My Mother Has Taught Me

Happy Mother’s Day to all my strong, courageous, confident, kind mothers out there! You are truly all amazing and I don’t know how you do half of the things you do! So much love and appreciation to you all. 🙂

I believe a mother is the shaping and molding of a kid, and our stepping stone to this thing called life. And although a mother plays an integral part in your future, if you didn’t have the opportunity to have that role model in your life, sometimes in other ways you can be shaped into becoming even a stronger person, once you realize your potential.

5 Things My Mother Has Taught Me

I wanted to share with you guys 5 things my mother has taught me as I believe all mother like figures teach us things that shape us in becoming who we are, positive or not. My mother was a tough one. She was one that you’d be scared to mess with. Growing up, my sister was terrified of my mom and since I was a bit more of a daredevil, I wasn’t as much, to an extent, scared of her. My mom was a “clean freak” and wanted things in her particular ways. To make this short, the sound of a vacuum on a Saturday morning still haunts me to this day….

5 Things My Mother Has Taught Me

Then, you get to an age and realize….. your mom was right about everything! (Ugh!) You start to do the things she does and you realize she had a lot of truth in what she was saying, but you were just being a brat and didn’t want to listen. Nowadays, I’m somewhat of a clean freak as well, but to a healthy extend. In my moms definition of it, I’m no where close, but I think that’s perfect for me! 🙂

Since, I am at that age where I realize my moms molding and shaping of me was such an integral step in becoming who I am, I wanted share some of the things my mom has taught me. She’s one of the strongest people I know and everyday I think about how I can be tough like her. She is also compassionate and loving, like most mothers are. And I am so happy to celebrate a day that is dedicated to the woman who sacrifices so much for our lives!

5 Things My Mother Has Taught Me

Without Further Ado, Here Are 5 Things My Mother Has Taught Me:

1. Be Stronger Than Life

Not sure if this one sounds a little off in English, but in Turkish it makes perfect sense. Let me explain. This is the one that I think about the most. How courageous is it, though? To be tougher than life. Life isn’t easy and we all go through some hard events and get blind sighted by hard events. My mom has always told me to be the most strongest version of myself so when life hits you with tough situation, you are tougher than what is getting thrown at you to handle it. It’s almost like being ready for battle and that life should be scared of you instead of vice versa. I’ve always taken that mindset with everything I have done. Growing up she would always push me out of the limits I’ve had for myself and never allow me to say I can’t do something. She always believed you can do anything with perseverance.

2. Enjoy Your Life & Keep Your Head Held High

My mom has always told me to enjoy your life, and that it’s the most important thing to do because life really is so short. Not only to enjoy your life but do it confidently following your own path. She has taught me to always keep my focus on my own path and not to care what people think of me. She’s taught me to be a free spirit and that to always keep my spirits high because we only have this precious life to live. She has always told me to ask yourself everyday; “What do I want to do today?” and then to do exactly that. She has told me to keep moving forward and do what you have to do for you.

3. Be Immensely Grateful

My mom is the type of women that can be grateful at any situation for the littlest things. She will see a flower and suddenly be immensely grateful for it. She says thank you to every little thing that she believes is made of magic, which seems to be everything in this life. Nature is her thing and she gets such a high from it. Which I think is where I get my love of nature. I think of her each time I practice gratitude and that we really don’t need so much to be extremely grateful for this life we’ve been given. It definitely makes my gratitude practice much easier thinking of how she can be grateful for anything.

4. Dance Your Way Through Life

This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to be a dancer but she has told me to dance through each thing you are doing. To do it in elegance, in a free spirit and to not take things so seriously. What she means when she says is that you should always have a positive attitude with each task you are doing. To flow through life with a smile on your face as much as you can.

5. No One Is Superior Than You

This one has gotten me through my professional years when its necessary to speak to higher up team mates. It’s still something I try to incorporate, but it totally makes sense. No one is superior than you because everyone is special in their own way and have different things to offer. Someone’s accomplishments shouldn’t be the defining point of who they are as a person. At the end of the day we are all human. She has taught me to be confident in what I have to offer and that it is nothing less than my managers.

5 Things My Mother Has Taught Me

My mom was a tough cookie, but now I appreciate her so much more for everything she has taught me and strive to be more like her everyday. I hope you have a wonderful day with your loved ones, and don’t forget to call your mom!! 🙂

Until next time.

XX,

Ozzy

How to Stop Dreading Mondays With Mindfulness

How to Stop Dreading Monday's With Mindfulness

I haven’t met many people who actually like Mondays, but I do know it is possible…

Many people don’t enjoy Mondays due to not being satisfied with their job. But it is possible to love Mondays and it usually happens when you find your passion; when you follow what’s within you and your souls calling.

For me, I’m in the midst of my search. I believe finding your purpose is a similar path as someone going in search to find a treasure. You get clues each day of what it is that you’re meant to do and if you listen to the cues and your intuition, you will always be directed towards it.

Do I believe everyone is here with a purpose? Yes, 100%. Now, that doesn’t mean we all follow our purpose. Everyone’s purpose isn’t extravagant either – it could be as simple as being an amazing mother. Or it could be the best doorman; full of enthusiasm and cheerfulness. 

How to Stop Dreading Monday's With Mindfulness

The other day, I really hit a point in my life where it really sank in that we only have one life to live. I understand others have different beliefs, but regardless, no one is guaranteed to live this same exact life. None of us also know for sure what waits for us at death. The point I am trying to make is, stop dreading each moment. In my discovery, it almost felt like I’ve gotten closer to the idea of the purpose of life, which is that we have a purpose to make a difference for the next generation ahead. It’s our duty.

You may be bitter in believing any of this because you may not love your job and you may not be in a good place mentally. I get it. It’s not easy and it’s not a good place to be mentally. And switching jobs isn’t as easy where you can just quit and figure out what to do. Not many of us are at that financial state to do so. 

Now, this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the process and no reason not to. I believe we should really enjoy each moment. I also believe tribulations make us who we are and believe each path we were given has a purpose in the big picture. With each tribulation, you get closer to who you are meant to be, so, why not have a positive attitude during the process?

Essentially, the ideal time you would stop dreading Mondays is when you start doing the things you are most passionate about. But you may not know what that is yet, and you may not know how to get there if you do know what your passion is. For the time being, if you are at a job that is draining and not motivating, take a step back and write a plan. It’s important to take action each day that will eventually take you out of that state.

You can do this type of practice with any uncomfortable situation, it doesn’t have to be a just on a Monday. Maybe you like your job, but there are other parts or times in your life where you are not enjoying, and you can implement this practice during those times.

To be clear, practicing mindfulness while experiencing uncomfortable situations does not necessarily make it go away, but it does allow you to better cope with the situation and make the experience easier to tackle.

Mindfulness /ˈmīn(d)f(ə)lnəs/ noun a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.

That is the modern day dictionary.com’s explanation on it and they hit it spot on. Mindfulness is a practice in which you become more aware of your surroundings, you notice things you normally would ignore and essentially, it’s a practice to get yourself out of the automatic way of thinking. We are not meant to be like robots and yet we easily act like it in most of our daily routines, which then leads us to miss the important things life has to offer.

Currently, I am reading the Alchemist and it reminds me of the part where the boy is told to hold a spoon full of oil and concentrate only on that spoon without letting anything spill, and while doing this he misses out on all his beautiful surroundings. Not practicing mindfulness is like this. Not being mindful of your surroundings and the little miracles of everyday living is missing out on the beauty of living. So, although, you may be in a position where you are not loving what you are doing, I believe you can always turn it around by practicing mindfulness and being positive that things will change. Of course, you must work through it so that your situation does change, but there is no reason to be miserable during the process. Remember, you only have one life to live – don’t let it go to waste. Everything about this life is extra-ordinary and beautiful – all you have to do is become one with it. 

Remembering that your work doesn’t have to take up all your life is one step closer to stop dreading Mondays or any other day. You can make anything else become the dominant part of your day by focusing on that one activity. For example, for me I love taking cycling or boxing classes, which I do in the mornings before work. I focus on how good it made me feel, how fun it was, how strong it made me feel all day instead of focusing on the bad parts of my day. You can also do it vice versa where you can hype yourself up for your class and how you will be taking care of your body at the end of the day.

Throughout my day, I tune into the little things that happen, such as focusing on someone’s face while they are talking to me or focusing on a song I’m listening to or just noticing my surroundings. It may seem so minuscular of just focusing on one thing, but it really is the small things that make the biggest impact. Mindfulness is like this in that way that every small thing you focus on allows you to be more in tune with your body and soul. It takes in all the small things that happen to you and allows you to appreciate them immensely.

When I discovered mindfulness, I felt like I discovered the key of life. It’s not an easy practice, but with all things, it takes time and effort. I use an app called Chill, where it reminds you to be mindful throughout the day. You can also view your mindfulness quote each day and I think it’s a nice little practice in your day. 

How to Stop Dreading Monday's With Mindfulness

Here are some other things you can do to ensure you won’t dread Monday’s:

  1. Go to the gym first thing in the morning
  2. Wear something that makes you confident and happy
  3. Write one goal you would like to accomplish for that day
  4. Meditate
  5. Laugh. Call your mom/dad/sister/brother or best friend and just laugh it out – train your mind to be happy on Mondays
  6. Health = your wealth. Feed your body nourishing foods and take good care of your temple
  7. Have a gratitude journal. Write down everything your grateful for each morning. It may take a while until the success of this will show, but just be patient and you will notice your heart is growing to be more grateful each day, which in turn will make you more positive and allow you to manifest more of what you want

Until you reach the moment where Mondays become an ordinary day where you can fully enjoy it, try to do this routine to improve your week. Always start on a strong note, because life no matter what will catch you on the blind side. And like my mother always says, be stronger than life and you’ll be guaranteed success!

Finally, always remember, progress = happiness, so every small little win you have, don’t forget to celebrate it! Every time you have a good feeling, stay there for a little longer than you normally would. Feel it out and with your mindfulness practice really notice how it makes you feel. When you prolong a good feeling, it will allow you to feel and stay more positive throughout the day, but also will allow you to look back at it and remind yourself of the experience.

Hope you can implement mindfulness to your days and to your Mondays and realize how wonderful little things can really be. We are not guaranteed any of this, but we are given this gift and it’s important to enjoy it, to not take ourselves too seriously and strive to make it a better place for all because we are all in it together.

Until next time,

Ozzy

Recommended Books & My 2018 Reading List

Reading list for 2018

One of my goals for this year is to read 2 books each month, so by 2019 I will have read 24 books. I believe this goal is attainable and realistic.

Last year, my goal was to read 50 books, which I did not get anywhere close to that. Why? Because my goal was unrealistic (not everyone can be Bill Gates), and not achievable from the start. That is not to say that I cannot achieve that goal maybe in a year or two, but I just need to build momentum first.

If you want a list of my all-time favorite self-help books, you can check out this post here.

2017 was a good year for some amazing books, but there are some I haven’t finished yet. I tend to read about 3 books at a time. Who else does that? I like to go from one book to another depending on my mood. At the end of the day, reading should be enjoyable. It’s kind of like watching TV; you tune into the show or movie you are in the mood to watch, so I tend to do the same with books.

Here is My 2017 Recommended Books:

  1. Zero to One: Notes on Startups, Or How to Build the Future by Peter Thiel with Blake Masters

This was the last book I read in 2017, and was a great choice. This is written by the co-founder of PayPal and advises on anyone who is looking to start a business, although, if that is not your goal, it’s also a great read for anyone interested in stories of many companies and powerful people like Elon Musk, Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos. This book was very well written and super insightful. It’s one of those books that you can look back on and reread any parts that are helpful. It’s an easy and quick read, which is also great for anyone that doesn’t want to commit to a long book. This is also a great book to inspire you to keep the “American Dream” going as Peter shows you that there is still so much we have yet to discover.

  1. The $100 Start-Up By Chris Guillebeau

This is a great book for anyone who is looking to travel and work remotely by building a startup with a low cost. It’s also inspiring to know that you don’t need millions of dollars to start a company. I really enjoyed this one to get some ideas on how I could be creative myself.

  1. The Four-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris

This is a great book for anyone in the work field and who wants to maximize their efficiency in their work and how to be effective every single hour of the day. We don’t realize how much time gets wasted in the day by minuscular things. Tim shows you how you can fix the process and shorten the time for projects or meetings. He talks about how to be productive and how you can migrate your work or outsource unto others. There was even a story of how one guy outsourced all his work to an assistant in India, where she would even reply to his wife. Crazy, I know. This is also a great book for anyone who owns their own blog/business/start-up. It teaches and gives you so many resources. This book is raved about for all the good reasons.

  1. The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey

If one of your goals this year is to get out of debt, or to be better with your money, then Dave Ramsey is your guy. This book shows you how to quickly, but realistically, get out of debt. If you have student loans – this is your book. If you don’t, you still would benefit from this book tremendously as it shows you how any average American can become a millionaire by saving and putting their money in the right investments. It was quite eye opening for me.

  1. Boost Your Brain Power in 60 Seconds by Michelle Schoffro Cook

On the contrary, if one of your goals is to be healthier, this book is for you. It shows you how we can prevent many diseases by the foods we eat, how each food effects our body and what is best to feed our brain for optimal use. I enjoyed this book very much and it’s still by my bedside for as a reference for any of the concepts.

  1. Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert

Lastly, if you read any book from my list, make sure it’s this one. This one wins my favorite for 2017. I have it on my Audible app, and re-listen to it whenever I feel that I need to hear Elizabeth’s words again. If her name sounds familiar to you, it’s because it is, she is the author of Eat, Pray, Love. This was beautifully written and the audible is narrated by Elizabeth herself, which is so calming to listen to. I absolutely love this book and cannot reiterate how much every creative person needs this book in their life. It shows you concepts of Law of Attraction, talks about how to tackle your fears and how to be the best version of yourself. I read/listened to this book 3 times this year.

List of Books to Read in 2018:

  1. Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are by Seth Stephens-Davidowits

This book is about how big corporations, or the government takes all our information and uses it. I quickly became interested in this book after I heard the speech from one of the data analytics, who shared his process of how he helped Trump win office from all the research they did with our data. Facebook is one of the places where a lot of these companies go and I figured it’s time to learn what kind of information is getting used and what they know about who we are.

  1. The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks by Steven Pressfield

I saw Mel Robbins reading and recommending this on her Instagram story, so I figured I’d give it a try. It’s a book about breaking out of your fears and succeeding in your creative space. For anyone that is wanting to create something, but having blockage from your own thoughts, I think this would be a nice book. This book talks about resistance – which deters you from showing up, and not giving it your best.

  1. The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be by Jack Canfield

The author of this is the co-creator of Chicken Soup for the Souls – popular series of books. This is a classic and maybe you guys already know about this. I think this book will be good for me to change my mindset, how to build my mind to be stronger, to persevere and how to be an achiever. So much of success comes from within your mind and I think this will teach me how to have a stronger mind. From my recommendations I’ve received, this seems like a good one to pick up if you are looking to create your dream life.

  1. The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson

This book is a good book if you want to be consistent with your work. It also talks about small wins, which is something I highly value. Seems to be a good book to learn about good work ethics and how to persevere through any work.

  1. Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari

Brief history of humans – I think it would be interesting to learn more about humans and the history of how we have evolved.

  1. Storyteller’s Secret by Carmine Gallo

This one teaches you how to be a better public speaker, which I believe everyone can benefit from. It’s a skillset you need as an adult and it’s better to be prepared now, then hope you knew more about the topic once an event comes up.

7. The Company of Women by Grace Bonney.

This book interviews a bunch of women entrepreneurs, which I’m sure as a female will be quite inspiring. With so many movements in the few couple of months for women; this year really feels like the year of women – so I’m sure this will be a good read.

8. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Lastly, this one is a classic. I’m sure you probably have already read this or it may also be on your reading list. I have yet to read it, and I am excited to see what the rave is all about. I heard that it has the law of attraction embedded in it without being too much.


That is all for all my recommended list and 2018 wish list! If you can tell – I love learning and I find that consistently growing your mind is super important, hence why most of my books are self-help. I find these types of books, personally, are the ones that grow my mind the most. You may be different and that is totally okay.

Let me know in the comments below if you have any recommendations for me!

Thanks for reading and have an amazing day!

xxo,

What is My Zodiac and Moon Sign?

zodiac and moon signs

Growing up, particularly in my high school years, I used to obsess over zodiac signs.

I found them to be intriguing and quite spot on. Or maybe I just had too much time on my hands as I wasn’t into sports nor felt like I had any other talents. Binge watching Lost got kind of old and I headed towards a different obsession and that was zodiac signs.

Many people don’t give zodiac signs the time of day because they think they are not real and are made up. Especially in high school, I felt like no one cared and there was little me trying to talk to people about it and no one cared. So, I decided to keep it to myself. Now, a lot of my friends are into it, I’m like really, you couldn’t have cared when I was obsessed with them!? Continue Reading →

Drug Store Makeup Haul – Fall 2017

Drugstore Haul

 

I realize that the average girl doesn’t usually have all of the high end makeup products nor knows so much about them. Unlike myself, the average girl is good with one palette from a random drug store brand, a foundation and a mascara. Honestly, I envy you, your life is not full of clutter. On the other side, I can’t deny my love for makeup and yes, it is an obsession/addiction, but at least I get to share it with you guys and if something doesn’t work out for me, then you guys can know before purchasing it!

Drug store makeup can be great for anyone on a budget, but sometimes, if you purchase the wrong product, it can really be a waste of money. What I’m trying to say is — it can get real ugly, real quick!

Fall Spotify Playlist – 2017

Fall Spotify Playlist

Hey there <3

If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have guessed that I am big into music. I love how songs can change someone’s attitude or mood within a few seconds and really make you get out of your head. On the contrary, if you ask me to sing a song along, I will, without fail, sing all of the lyrics wrong! 🙂

There are songs that make you feel happy and then there are songs that make you mellow and humble. My range of music I’m into is so diverse that it’s quite hard to explain what I like. I guess you could say I enjoy pop, hip-hop, country, and basically anything that sounds good to me!

On a side note – who loves watching The Voice? I am obsessed with that show! I don’t watch too much TV (more of a YouTube gal), but this show makes me cry every. single. dang. time. They just know how to get to my little heart and it’s so cute to see the artists going out and making their dreams become reality. <3 Continue Reading →

How to Wake Up Early Using the 5 Second Rule

How to Wake Up Early Using the 5 Seconds Rule

Isn’t it such a shame we tend to wait to do things until we are “ready”. Let me break it to you (and to myself because I am a victim of this), you are never going to be ready to do anything. You just have to go for it. Good news: it is simple — but not easy.

Waking up early is something we all struggle with. I remember back in the days when I was in Middle/High School, I used to think “I can’t wait to be an adult so that I will never have to wake up early again.” Oh, how I wish I could speak to that little girl now and tell her that is not the case for adulthood.

8 Things I Do Before 8 A.M.

Wake up early quote

Rise and shine! Did you know early rising is a common trait found in many CEOs? That’s right, Marget Thatcher used to be up everyday at 5 a.m., Frank Lyod Wright at 4 a.m., Roger Iger (CEO of Disney) at 4:30 a.m., and my favorite lady Michelle Obama wakes up at 4:30 a.m. Here’s a full list of others, if you are interested.

Maybe being a CEO isn’t necessarily your thing, but it is important to have a morning routine for a calmer day to tackle on whatever comes your way. It’s necessary to take the lead on the day instead of having the day take a hold on you. Too often we wake up rushed and speed through our morning before work which then leads us to not be able to handle stressors of everyday living or stressful situations at work.

Ever since I incorporated a morning routine into my lifestyle, I’ve seen a HUGE change of how I react to events, my mood, anxiety level, productivity, and overall how I feel throughout the day. I feel more accomplished and a lot more positive. Life is also a lot more enjoyable. I know what you’re probably thinking at this point: “How can life be more enjoyable if I don’t get to sleep in?”, and I get it, sleeping is nice, but waking up and accomplishing things you said you always wanted to do is even nicer.

Life is more enjoyable because by waking up a little earlier than you normally would, you have more time to actually LIVE out this life instead of sleeping through it. You get to take care of YOU. Life is also more enjoyable because in that moment everything is quiet and peaceful and even if work ends up being stressful, you have this one thing, this one moment you can hold onto for the rest of the day to feel positive.

Here are 8 things I like to do before 8 a.m.:

  1. Drink water

I sometimes like to keep water by my bedside to drink right when I wake up to get energized. Water naturally gives us more energy so this really helps if you are struggling to get out of bed. Apart from that, we have been sleeping for about 8 hours, give or take, and our bodies are very dehydrated at this point. It’s important even if you don’t drink a lot, to replenish with water first thing in the morning.

2. Meditate

I move on to meditation quickly after because I like doing it right when I wake up as I feel more at peace with the rest of my morning routine. I will usually only meditate for about 5-10 minutes using an app — I am currently using Insight timer. I’ve explained all the benefits of it here, if you want to know more about it. I find meditation has really been able to calm my thoughts, aid with how I react to things, and has helped me deal with the daily stressors of life.

3. Visualize

I do this right after meditation as it’s an easy transition. There are many videos on YouTube that you can watch to see how to do it properly, but the way I do it is I close my eyes and picture an event and a place in my head. I describe exactly how it’s happening and put into detail of everything I’m wearing to what I’m holding in my hand. The benefits of visualization are enormous as well. Just do any research on it, and you will find out.

4. Journal

This one is such an important step for me. This really lets me start the day on a positive note. Whether that is because I am planning ahead – which alleviates stress or if it’s because I am dumping all of my thoughts into paper hence letting my thoughts free. It really clears my head and allows me to be whole. This one is so simple: you just have to start writing about whatever comes to your mind and keep going.

5. Gratitude

This one is right after journaling because I write on the same journal. I like to write 3-5 things I am grateful for each day. It might be small and silly, but it really adds up overtime. You start having a more grateful heart and the results are once again enormous.

6. Read

I like to read either the WSJ or a book or the Bible for a couple minutes each morning. I don’t read for too long as I know I will do some of the reading on my commute. I think this is important because it’s important to be a constant learner.

7. Exercise

My favorite part. I have been doing my exercises in my house lately with a video from YouTube, but if I don’t then I will head to the gym at this point. It might be the gym near my house or a class near my work. I will try to get in a workout anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.

8. Eat Breakfast

This has been a lifesaver for me. I used to occasionally skip out on breakfast and I noticed each time I would feel so hungry by the end of the night and nothing I ate was filling me up. It’s because my body wanted to compensate for the calories I missed out on and overall my body was out of balance. I also noticed I would crave more sugar by the end of the night. Once I started eating breakfast more regularly, I noticed that I wouldn’t eat big dinners and dessert was kept to a minimum (this girl always needs dessert after dinner 🙂 ).

That’s usually what I do each morning. There will be days when I miss exercising but I compensate by taking a walk at lunch time. It’s really all about listening to your body and what it’s telling you it needs. If you need help waking up, read my post here.

I really enjoy waking up early also because it allows me to feel that my life isn’t taken by my job only and that I get to have time to myself to enjoy the things that make me feel at peace and calm. If you can wake up early and go to work early to get out early then do that. Whatever helps you have more time to do the things you love, do that! Don’t let work take all of your time!

Until next time,
