Yay! Shopping success!

The perfect fit!

Did you RUE today? RUE21, that is. (Not a promotion.) I’m not a great shopper. I like to shop when I know exactly what I’m looking for. I don’t like browsing for hours on isles at several stores. But today, I had a great in-person shopping experience with my mom. As spring is in full swing, I just had to look for comfy shorts. There’s 4 here, and I’m wearing a pair. Normally, with pandemic restrictions, I would never venture out to physically shop for clothes. Apparently, today was my lucky day! I have a hard time finding the right pair of shorts for spring/summer. The fact that I’m still writing about this says a lot! πŸŒΌπŸ˜… Shop safe folks!

Faithful Forty: Day 40

Faithful Forty: Day 40 (Azra)

Ok folks, my mom nearly twisted my arm to write this thing called, blog post.

She said people might listen to reason coming from me, because I’m adorable. So, here goes:

I understand Jesus Christ fasted, I guess, didn’t eat much – which I find hard to imagine, for 40 days and forty nights . The way Jesus talks about it to me, is, sometimes, you need to empty in order to fill up again with better things. Like, when my food bowl is empty. I’m flying by the seat of my pants here…

I guess, you can also hear better with all the silence… Heaven to my sensitive ears. I imagine walking alongside with Jesus keeping Him company… I would have scared that awful snake that tried to tempt Him. I look small, but my bark is big.

When I observe humans around me, I think it’s possible to mentally, spiritually, and emotionally fast. But humans don’t understand this simple concept: listen more, talk less; love unconditionally because this is true love; help others, because trust me, you’d want them to help you; listen to silence, it’s your best council. Simple.

I think I like writing blog posts… I’m asking my mom to let me write another post soon. So humans, are you listening?

Many blessings πŸ™πŸΌ, Azra

Faithful Forty: Day 22

Northern New Mexico setting sun

Ugghhh… I don’t want to talk about this and have been putting it off. Highly Sensitive People. Better known as HSP. There are a bunch of cool vids and info out there about highly sensitive people. Today, I want to talk about what it’s like to deal with this gift daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, heck, minute by minute.

If you’re reading this, and it’s found its way to your digital door, you don’t need a definition for HSP. You know what it’s like. And, I’m writing this for you. For me, for other people who have the privilege of knowing HSPs. Yes, it is a privilege.

So, let’s get started. (I’m flying by the seat of my pants here.) Big number ONE: It’s okay if no one understands you. There are others who do, and you’ve come to the right place. Own it, flaunt it.

Big number TWO: All the feelings and emotions you carry, aren’t always yours. Empathic abilities are a key ingredient to HSPs. If it’s not yours, don’t own it.

Big number THREE: You will know if you are owning others’ pain, emotions, or other ‘stuff’, because it hits you suddenly. Out of nowhere. But I don’t have to explain it to you – you know what I am talking about.

Big number FOUR: Draw boundaries. There are plenty of meditations out there than can guide you to put up walls of protection.

Big number FIVE: Use your gifts for the good of everyone around you and globally. The world needs you. Armor up, learn to tell the difference between being used, and being helpful, and let’s do what we came here to do – our life path – helping others. Many, many, blessings to you kind, highly sensitive souls.
